This has probably been one of the worst weeks ever. I'm so glad tomorrow is Friday. I'll be glad to get to the weekend whether I get this damn story finished or not.
We've been having on and off power outages for the past few days. The worst one was for about a 2 hour stretch Tuesday night. It was 11pm and blazing hot. We cracked open the front door but there wasn't so much as a breeze to help cool us off. I ended up pacing around the front yard in the dark with the baby, trying to keep him cooled off. I'm not really sure what the big deal is with the lights. They have trucks going up and down the road every so often. All I can think is maybe the construction crew working one road over keeps tinkering with things. I don't know. But it's not very productive to writing, I can assure you that.
On another note, I've been reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince during the brown-outs. Okay, no spoilers folks, I've already had one person tell me Dumbledore dies, but if so much as one more secret about the book leaks before I get to read it, I will cast wicked voodoo on whoever spills the beans! ^_^
Anyway, I'm about half-way through the book and already I have a theory about what's happening in the next one. First off, I don't believe for an instant that Dumbledore is actually dead. I'll share that theory once I finish...it will take a bit of explaining, and I'm a bit short on time today.
Well, I'm off for now, folks. I'm going to go try and do a bit of editing.
PS. Isn't the sea dragon picture simply gorgeous! Beautiful creature!
