It felt very much like a hurricane last night. Earlier this morning, the temperature was dropping, the rain tapered off, and it smelled like snow. But now, the rain’s whipped up again full force.
I am not looking forward to going out in this.
That’s another reason I want to leave this frigging business: Enough with “the show must go on.” I’m no longer willing to risk my life venturing out in effing hurricanes so a producer can make money.
Let me point out that I have to head out to the show, not the pilot today. We’re not shooting the pilot today, and, if the weather keeps up, there’s a good chance at least they will be sane enough to reschedule tomorrow.
Published the week’s worth of Circadian last night. I can’t believe we’re almost at the end of October!
Yesterday was a happy, good day: in spite of unpacking, repacking, laundry, trying to catch up on way too much email, etc. I roasted a chicken and created an absolutely delicious parsnip-carrot stuffing. Served with mashed potatoes and other fall vegetables, it was a good, good meal for a cold, rainy day. Then I boiled down the bones with onion, celery and parsley for stock.
Paid some bills this morning, moved the car to higher ground in case the brook overflows (we have a repeating motif here), etc.
Last night, I got to carve a pumpkin, for the first time in several years. Um, next year, I’ll invest in the carving kit. The kitchen knife wasn’t the best choice. But I have a cute, jolly pumpkin that even the cats like.
Fed Ex better not screw up, and my barn coat better arrive before I have to run for the city. I might blog at some point in the week, or I might be offline until next week.
Oh, and Roman Ruler got injured and is out of the BC Sprint on Saturday. There goes my exacta.
Have a good week, everyone, and stay safe.
