School started last week and all is well. I'm liking this year's schedule much better than last year's because I work better under pressure. There seems to be less time in the morning, hence me squeezing in writing without any extra time to goof off. Plus I think the morning coffee buzz gets me going more than my afternoon tea buzz. But, the proof is in the pudding. We'll see where I am with my writing in a few months.
The weather has cooled down enough to where I think fall is really, truly on the way. Can't even tell you what a relief that is. I mean, it was so bad this summer that I took to going downstairs to watch cooking shows and zen out. It was like my survival. I was having all those headaches, my body was so hot all the time. Geesh. This 80 degree stuff is heavenly. We need more rain, though. The other week while driving past some open fields I saw how skinny the cows were, and how the dust just rose from their hooves as they walked along. Poor things. We forget how bad the animals have it—for real. We have air conditioning and running water, but they have dried-up lakes and ponds and needle-like dead grass. Come on rain.
An here's the promotional part of my post, haha. Diana from Offbeat Vagabond has written a lovely review of The Soul Seekers, which, by the way, is free today for Kindle on Amazon. Last time I looked it ranked #65 in Fantasy, Futuristic & Ghost section. Yay!
I hope you have a wonderful day. Take care, all!
Life these days.
