Waxing Moon
Pluto Retrograde
It’s supposed to be sunny and warm today

I’m scheduling this to post while I travel. The plan is for me to get up extra early and get in my run, the shower, eat breakfast, grab my luggage, take the train in to Grand Central, walk down to Penn, take the Megabus to Philly.

Once I get to Philly, I’ll dump the luggage, then go out for some grocery and wine shopping and settle in. I’m not going to do a whole hell of a lot this weekend– I want it to be R&R, not running around or on frantic deadline.

I have my next assignment from Confidential Job #1, which I’ll probably read on the bus.

Yesterday, I did some work on the screenplay. I’m learning what’s happening as I write, and I have to say, the longer I do this and the more I sell, the more I prefer to work from an outline. It helps re-orient me as I move from project to project, and it cuts down on the time spent staring at the page going, “Where did I plan to go from here?”

I got some good work done on the next section of POWER OF WORDS.

Violet climbed on something she shouldn’t have and it toppled over. I went to grab her/catch her as she panicked, and she accidentally gave me a deep slash in my forearm with her back leg (in addition to jarring my wrist by landing on it). Poor little thing was terrified. Unfortunately, I have a deep gash. If I had insurance, I’d have gone for stitches, but since I don’t, it was a case of being grateful I’m certified in advanced First Aid, cleaning it, disinfecting it, putting on an herbal poultice to draw out infection (you can tell because It starts to stink after about an hour or so — I caught this before it got a chance to infect. I dressed it properly and will take dressing changes with me on the trip. But that whole side is badly jarred (and she’s such a little cat) and handling luggage today totally sucks. She’s okay, although she managed to knock over a glass of red wine, so it looked like blood splatters all over a white kitchen.

Elsa watched it all go down with a completely puzzled expression on her face, while Iris hid.

I need a few days away! 😉
