#TuesdayThoughts: Mixing it up.

Standard

So I’ve had a change of scenery today. I’m sitting in my parents’ place, waiting for a fridge to be delivered.

Good, good times.

Nothing’s that different but the view, and the furniture, of course. But I’ve got a nice little corner set up and I’m torn between the delivery coming quickly and it taking its time.

Not that I have to clear out, but like the rest of the world, I’ve got Stuff to Do.

Ironically I thought I’d get away from hammering, as there’s hammering at my place, but it turns out they also have hammering.

Long live the hammer.

It’s a beautiful day, though, with big fluffy clouds, and it’s almost as though the weather forgot all about the snow.

Let’s not remind it.

So I’m going to take advantage of my cozy spot to edit, while you go and have the best of Tuesdays.

#TuesdayThoughts: Marshmallow Fluff-Based Lifestyle.

Standard

Not that I’m living one. But I’m definitely considering a marshmallow fluff way of life.

In all honesty, I considered adding some to my coffee this morning. Not sure if it would work, but I’m kind of willing to give it a shot.

It’s good, that’s all I’m saying, and much easier to make than you might think.

What is this, a cooking blog?! Very food-obsessed this morning. Although I guess my rambling is my rambling. Today it’s floating in fluff.

It’s gray again and I’ve heard we’re supposed to get snow this week. I guess it’s that time, but I’m not ready. That won’t change the weather, though.

It’s great for cozying up with a manuscript to edit, and that’s what’s ahead of me. Have a fantastic Tuesday.

#TuesdayThoughts: Vacant

Standard

It’s rainy today. I’m feeling sniffly, and I hope it’s not the beginnings of a cold. No one wants that.

Especially me.

Perhaps more coffee will solve it. Perhaps not. But it might be worth a try.

It’s quiet, outside and inside, and my mind is oddly quiet too. I say “oddly” because I usually have a stream of thoughts, one after another after another; sometimes they all crowd together at once.

Not today. My money’s on that potential cold.

Just as well, I need to keep my head on my editing as I vacillate on NaNoWriMo. Right now I’m leaning toward not doing it.

That can always change.

I’m off to edit. Have a marvelous Tuesday.

#TuesdayThoughts: Dull

Standard

It’s cloudy but glare-y out today, I’m not really sure how that works. I’m under-caffeinated, but yesterday had some caffeine side-effects so I think I’m going to have to moderate today.

Moderation is the worst.

I just solved a complex putting-away problem though. I got some lovely serving bowls from Costco, but realized I had nowhere to store them. But with a little bit of rearranging magic, boom, suddenly there’s space.

Things had to get slightly separated, though; some of my super-fancy dollar store wine glasses were too tall for the shelf I wanted them on. But needs must, so they say.

Given that that’s my most interesting tidbit for you this morning, I think I’m not what you’d call off to a roaring start.

We’ll see what we can do about that. Have a great Tuesday.

#TuesdayThoughts: Left unintentionally blank

Standard

Oops. Started out with nothing after the colon. So that’s the kind of Tuesday I’m going to have.

The editing has begun. Barely, but I’ve started.

Usually my first pass is largely reading, but when you hit those sentences that stop you in the middle with a loud “clunk,” you’ve got to fix them on sight.

I had something sticky on my keyboard, likely from the pluot I was eating. All fixed now. And spellcheck apparently has never had a pluot.

Poor spellcheck.

Bright and sunny here today, though lots of sirens for some reason. I see no evidence of their need; they could be miles away for all I know.

I have settled into Fall, and Fall has settled into me, the fresh cooler temperatures feeling like they make sense. Only one cup of coffee so far today, though.

We’ll see what happens with that.

And I am off to edit. Eventually. Have a great Tuesday.

#TuesdayThoughts: Incremental

Standard

I initially typed the headline as “incrimental,” because I think I’ve got the state of politics on my mind. Which is criminal-heavy at the moment.

So there’s that.

But not really what I meant. I’ve been thinking about the tiny blocks that just add up. Tidying, little bit by little bit. Writing, line by line.

And time, whether we do anything with it or we don’t, there it goes. Tick by tick.

Kind of reflective today, I guess.

It’s pretty gray out, the flat kind, the kind that doesn’t promise rain, only gloom. I’m tired as I didn’t sleep well, for no reason in particular.

And my dreams were weird.

But so it goes.

I am going to try to get some oxygen up there, blow away the cobwebs. Have a great Tuesday.

#TuesdayThoughts: Irked

Standard

You know those mornings where little things go wrong but they’re really, really annoying? I’m having one of those.

The complaints are so minor it’s silly to name them, and yet they manage to deeply irk.

Apparently today I’m irkable.

Like get it together, Morning. Have a little dignity.

It’s a bright, sunny day though there are some wispy clouds, clouds that probably can’t be bothered to be real clouds. Maybe they’re having an irksome morning too.

I had Stuff to do yesterday, far away from writing and editing. No, not at all on purpose, why do you ask?

And I got a new keyboard cover. Two, actually, you got them both when you ordered one, and it’s the cheapest one I’ve bought so far, and I have to say, my favorite. When does that ever work out? Doesn’t impede the typing in the least.

Maybe the irksome is moving on with itself. I hope so. And I hope you have an irk-free Tuesday.
