Waning Moon
Saturn Retrograde
Jupiter Retrograde
Cloudy and mild

Frustrated because I didn’t get any writing done yesterday. Just barely caught up on e-mail.

I bought two novels on my way to work (from the remainder table). I figured that I’m reading so much research information, I need some escapism. I got Brian Hall’s novel about Lewis & Clark, and another novel called Bread Alone by Judi Hendricks, which I really enjoy.

Matinee was fine, but I was glad to get out of there.

Still no hot water, and no explanations. Over it!

I have to prepare for a meeting this afternoon, so I have a feeling most of the morning will be taken up with that. And then I have to look up directions.

Hopefully, I can get some writing done later in the afternoon. I also have letters that need to go out.

Hit with a case of pre-birthday blues (my birthday is on Friday). It has no relation to reality, it just is. Whatever. Get over it.

Elsa (the tortoiseshell cat) escaped twice in the last two days as I’ve stepped into the door, and I had to chase her around the hallway. She wants adventure! Well, when we get the house, she’ll have plenty of adventures exploring it. For a big cat, she moves fast.

No physical work done on Ransagh yesterday, although on the train I realized that I have to change the timeframe of something that happened between Shawndor and Raisa several years before the start of the story. Where I’d placed the event was bothering me. I thought of removing it, but it’s so important to how they got where they are now, and how they respond to both each other and outsiders. I realized that if I just shift the time frame slightly, I can smooth it out and now it all makes sense.

Double class tonight to make up for the two past cancelled Mondays. I’m supposed to go away this weekend, and they’re threatening another storm. Hopefully, this will be one of the times they are wrong.

And, hopefully, I’ll have more interesting topics to mutter about tomorrow.

Judi Hendricks used to live in my neighborhood. She's since moved to the Southwest, if I recall correctly, not sure if it's Arizona or New Mexico. A writer friend of mine is a friend of Judi's--Judi was her student. I attended Judi's publishing party when the book came out. I bought it also and much enjoyed it. She's got a new one out as of last year I think but I have not run across it yet.
