It’s day 23 of NaNoWriMo. I can’t believe how far I’ve come! Today has been a great day, albeit chilly. Yesterday it was a nice 60 degrees and sunny, this morning it was warm with a cool breeze, and about 5p the temperature dropped to freezing and snow began to fall. Gently at first, almost enough to go unnoticed. Then, around 7pm, within minutes it was a near white-out. You couldn’t see the street from our shop’s windows, and we got an inch within 1o minutes. Then it slowed, and has been steadily falling all night. Only in Ohio, friends, only in Ohio. The best part? The weathermen and news channels are still saying it’s raining here. What a far cry from my hometown in Arizona! It used to be that we had only one forecast, and it was always right. Hot.
I got to sleep in a good while this morning for only the second time this month, and spent a few hours editing for the wonderful Madison Louise. (Check out her books y’all. She’s fantastic!) Then I helped with lunch orders, did my job at the shop, edited some more, waited out the worst of the snow – due to bad windshield wipers – and headed home. Had a wonderful night with the family, and then got down to business. All in all, this writer is very happy at the moment. Which, I’m certain, has nothing to do with the two mochas and three hot chocolates I’ve had today.
Finally, I will leave you with a beautiful face tonight. I don’t always fangirl. But when I do, I fangirl hard. Loki is one of my all-time favorite characters. So what if he has daddy issues and an insatiable lust for power? He’s got depth. And a soul.
