New Moon
Mercury Retrograde
Saturn Retrograde
Rainy and cool

I had a cold yesterday — messy and miserable. I’m a little better today, but not 100%.

Lots of admin work yesterday. Some research. Made chicken soup from scratch for the cold, which turned out very well. Baked a chocolate sponge cake from the KAFFEEHOUSE cookbook — three mixing bowls, two pots, elaborate preparation, disappointing result. Chicken and dumplings for dinner was good, though.

I’m sending out article pitches for the first time in ages. I’d hoped, during my library work, to keep going with the article writing, but I didn’t have the energy. The last few months, I didn’t have the heart. But I have some ideas for pieces, and researched possible markets, so off we go. I think I’m ready to go back to writing articles. In fact, I’m looking forward to writing about topics in which I’m deeply immersed, balanced with learning new things.

More admin work today, sending out pitches. Trying to coordinate to pick up something, but the person is such a PIA, I may just pass.

This afternoon, I have to make the final decisions for the contest. I need to get them out tomorrow.

Not feeling well takes a lot of energy. I’m trying to keep going (I’d like to get some more pages done on the screenplay – I’m in the home stretch). But I’m exhausted, and I have to concentrate on a few other projects first.

Re-reading Victoria Glendenning’s bio of Anthony Trollope. Always enjoy it.
