A Welcome Storm

After our busy day Saturday, we slept in yesterday morning and then spent a relaxing day at home. In fact, we put on our comfortable lounge clothes when we got up and never changed! It was just one of those kind of days.

After a breakfast of the last of Terry’s delicious cinnamon rolls and a cappuccino, I spent most of the day working on my newest book, going over the manuscript and making some changes to what I had done already to polish it a bit, and then writing another chapter.

While I was doing that, Miss Terry was busy working on paperwork, which seems to multiply at night while we sleep. We took a break a couple of times when people stopped by to visit but I’m having a brain fart and can’t remember everybody’s names. Terry had a birthday and I’m the one getting older. Go figure.

Actually, I am terrible with names. If I don’t write them down immediately when somebody visits, or if Miss Terry doesn’t make a notation for me, I forget every time. A couple of times folks have been offended by that, but since I’m perfect in every other way, I guess I need that one little flaw just to make me human, right?

For dinner we had leftover pizza and Chinese food from restaurant dinners last week. I’ve never cared for leftover pizza reheated in a microwave, but Terry’s Breville Toaster Oven does an excellent job. In fact, I think it was even better than it was the first time around in the restaurant!

We’ve been here at the Westminster Elks lodge for over a week now, and every day it has threatened rain, but the most we’ve received was a lot of wind and a few occasional raindrops. But during the afternoon a strong thunderstorm hit, with lots of thunder and lightning, and it poured for a while. This region sure needs the rain, so it was welcome, as well as the noticeable drop in temperature that came along with the storm. The only bad side was that the storm set off a burglar alarm someplace in the area, and three or four hours later it was still wailing. 

I’m not a big fan of television chef Paula Deen, though while we were in Savannah last year with Greg and Jan White, we did eat at Uncle Bubba’s Oyster House, which she owns in partnership with her brother. But Bad Nick felt he needed to weigh in on the controversy surrounding Deen. Check out his latest Bad Nick blog post, titled Is Paula Deen A Racist? and leave a comment.

This morning I have a telephone interview about my self-publishing experiences, and then in the afternoon a couple of readers and longtime friends are supposed to stop by for a visit. Just don’t ask me their names. I haven’t written them down yet.

Thought For The Day – In order for you to insult me, I would first have to value your opinion.
