  1. Another trip up to Indy today to take Mom on some errands -- but it's worth it to not have to worry about her driving any more. Hope everybody has a great hump day and it's all downhill to the weekend.

  2. Oh wait. I thought that was a hole in the leaf, but the veins are continuing right across. Dark spot, then? Cooool.

    Maria, the closest I've come to outlining is to lay out scene descriptions in Scrivener. But I don't have more than a vague idea of how it's going to end. Oh well, that's never stopped me before!

    Miming at home today, yay!

  3. I'm groovin' to the AWESOME weather - it's fall in August, and I hope it stays this way for a long time.

    Larry, that's how I structure stuff in Scrivener, too. I do brain dump notes, and then parse them out into scene/chapter notes.

    Doc checkup this a.m. - all is good, but for cholesterol being a bit high. Back on statins for a bit to get the number down. All other bloodwork is fab.

    Happy almost weekend!

  4. We are having a gorgeous day here. Hopefully this will last.

    Maria, great news! Here's hoping everything stays good.

    I have been remiss in not mentioning A Crowded Coffin. Nikky gave it to me at Malice but because of my back, it takes me a bit to get to hard copy books.

    This book is everything I love in a traditional mystery. Great characters and a good story. I love the main protagonists, Harriet and her cousin, Sam. Harriet is a retired school head and Sam is a minister. Both are older which I love. Their relationship is delightful.

    I have been wondering if I had lost my taste for traditional mysteries because all the craft stories have been a major turnoff. This book (the second in the series) is why I know I haven't.

    So thanks, Nikky. When is the third one coming out?
