Now I know most of you will wonder what the title of this blog post means so I shall tell you. I have been working on my yard because of the weather. I have dug post holes and put the poles in for the fence but I had to stop because I have a spot in my yard that needs dirt and I couldn't finish the fence until the BIG truck came. Well the dirt came Saturday. Yay! So I have been shoveling dirt for the last two days. Let me tell you how much the Monster Baby has loved this. I have never seen a child so filthy. I've also had to stock up on my Tylenols because this old body has never worked so hard. I shoveled 124 wheelbarrows between both days. My arms feel like jello.
I will also have to tell you that I compare working on my yard to working on my book. Because of the hole, (yes, a giant big gaping hole in my yard) that needed dirt, I had to fill it in first with leaves and twigs and other things that will compost. Then I had to move the free-standing deck in the middle of the yard because it was in the way of the truck. Then I had to move the little garden because it doesn't get any sun after April, also in the way of the truck. Next, on to the fence, which I had to stop production on because of the truck.
In the beginning of Genna & Tony's adventure, I had a big gaping hole in the middle of the plot. Which I have since filled in. Now, we had to move some things around, scenes, paragraphs, characters, waiting for the climatic scene at the end of Act One. Nothing could be done until I wrote that scene. Now I can go back in and finish all the scenes I couldn't finish. (Hence all the moving around and waiting to finish the fence because of the big gaping hole.)
So there, I am working on my book (sort of) but I really need to get the yard done before it either a)gets cold again-please God no, b) rains-please God no. Once the yard is finished (or until I break my body completely) I will be able to go back to Genna & Tony. Don't worry I'll still be posting on Thursday for the little Something-Something but I don't know what.
As to my friends who are anxiously awaiting an email from me about certain somethings...I have not forgotten you. I am ruminating, formulating and will be getting back to you hopefully by Wednesday. (Monster Baby will be back in school so I will have "quiet" time in which to respond.)
Happy Week everyone, I hope your Easter was full of bunnies and chicks and anything else made of chocolate.
And please scroll down to yesterday's blog where I posted awards for a whole mess o' people. I want you to have these, so please go see if you are listed anywhere.
And if I haven't given you one, I will.
