I stood in line at the post office for about 30 minutes just to get two express packages scanned. I also remembered to get flat rate envelopes this time, and a few more of the little flat rate boxes and some of the priority stickers, and I had a good sized bag and an armload of boxes in addition to the express packages. (All pre-posted, to the relief of the line behind me...) I think I selectively forget how awful the post office is the day after a holiday.
Art and Authoring
Just an excerpt for you, today:
Her pleasure transformed what was admittedly a plain, placid face into something lovely. Her brown eyes glowed, and her pale skin had flattering color. A mountain breeze gave life and body to her mousy, shoulder-length hair. Would she believe him if he told her she was beautiful? Jerumal wondered. His hand found his pocket, and he fingered the carefully rolled parchment.
Home and Health
Oh boy. I got to work just in time for explosive dog diarrhea. It stinks in here and it's cold from having the windows open so the smell doesn't suffocate me. A fabulous indicator of how my day will be.
The next disc of Avatar is here! I will probably mainline them tonight and then spend the next several days at the mailbox waiting for the last one. I may also do art and work on orders.
ysabetwordsmith is doing a Poetry Fishbowl today! You can suggest prompts based on her theme, and she'll write a poem. She posts one or more of poems she creates (depending on sponsorship and activity!) and it's always fun to see what people suggest. Her theme today is horror in general and shapeshifters in particular.
