Its not QUITE spring here yet, despite the calendar. The sun is bright, but its cold as my elbow out there. No tulips yet (that pic is from a few years ago) but the daffys are about to bloom. The squirrel is humping the hedgehog again. If I can just hold out, it will warm up in a few days and I may actually get outside to dig around in the dirt. I want to edge the flower beds so that I can have a stranger mow the yard without fearing for my flowers.
I have a Critique partner! She's on vacation at the moment, be we;ll begin next week I'll start working on a scene for her to critique today!
Oscar and I have started a project. We're co-authoring a mystery, and having a meeting every Friday to discuss it. We had our first meeting yesterday. I think it willbe fun :-}
We had breakfast at a local place called "The Ugly Mug". Back when it was "The Mud House" I loved it, but I was a smoker then. Yesterday even though we sat as far away from the smoking area as we could, I still reeked of tobacco by the time we got home. The food was ok, but the coffee sucked big time. Not a good sign. So next Friday we'll try a different locale. I have high hopes for a place called "Tom Bombadill" but the access may be an issue.
