Waning Moon

Hot, humid, cloudy

Catch up with the latest on the garden over at Gratitude and Growth.

Yesterday started out pretty well; The idea for my client’s piece worked, she loved it, it went out into the world to draw in business. That was all good.

But I  found out that a client has been lying to me about something pretty major. So I have to gather facts and documentation and decide what to do about it.

Remote chat was fun.

Got out some LOIs.

Spun out some ideas, and I’ll start storyboarding a marketing campaign today.

Found out a colleague is about to go into hospice. She’s been fighting cancer a long time. I’m so sad, and feel so helpless.

Re-read Louise Penny’s THE BRUTAL TELL. It’s lovely and sad.

The second Jane Darrowfield book by Barbara Ross arrived (an ARC). I’m so happy. I started it last night, and am thoroughly enjoying it.

I have to do a run to Trader Joe’s, which will eat up a good part of my morning, but it needs to be done. I also need to get a big chunk of writing done over the next few days.

And I need to do some work on Grief to Art.

I did some prep for today’s Knowledge Unicorns session.

Today is also the 2nd anniversary of Freelance chat!

I am not surprised, but I am angry that the person calling himself “president” has murdered nearly 200,000 citizens, continues to murder, and Congress lets him. There have to be severe and long-lasting consequences for this. And the West Coast is burning, and no one does anything about it.

There’s plenty going on that I can’t discuss publicly; I will share what I can when I can. Not much of a post, is it? Let’s hope a productive day can get me back on track.

At least the pistachio mousse I experimented with yesterday came out well! It’s the little things.

Charlotte and Willa are now genuinely happy. It’s taken them nearly a year to settle in, after being bounced around every few weeks for 18 months prior. But now they are settled and happy. Even Tessa is happier lately. I’m hoping in a few more months, they will all hang out together more. Learning they don’t have to compete – for attention, food, toys, anything – has been a big lesson for Charlotte and Willa. There’s enough for everyone and no one gets shut out.

We need to rebuild our society on those principles, too.

Cloudy and cool

I had a great day at the library yesterday. Really fun. Ran what needed to be run, made decisions that needed to be made, learned a bunch of new stuff, did some research, outsmarted the computer which tried to balk and not do what we needed it to do.

Came home, cooked dinner, worked on research for a project — and fell asleep. Woke up long enough to haul myself to bed and had a long, hard rest. Feel much better this morning.

Got some work done early on the script project and a client project. I plan to wrap up the next phase of the client project tomorrow. Later than I wanted, but the information is still trickling in, and it’s bumped up against other deadlines now, so I’m working around everything as best I can.

Also found the galleys of “Lake Justice” in my mailbox this morning — have to turn them around in the next two days.

I go directly from the library to rehearsal tonight. Tomorrow, I have client work, one more prop to build for the show, the “Lake Justice” galleys, storyboarding for the series, finishing up the course materials for the conference, rehearsal with the understudy, and I have to finalize the program for the show. I have a feeling there’s something else, too, but that’s what’s on my plate for tomorrow. I’m hoping I can have a much-needed day off for Easter Sunday, but that will depend on the galleys and the storyboarding for the series.

Next week is the show! Please support us, either by coming to see us, or by tossing a few bucks at our indiegogo campaign here.

Have a GREAT holiday weekend!

Devon
