Working on Sylphline Realm – Royal Blood this week.
I’m near the end of this book and can’t even begin to say how happy that makes me. It’s not that I’m tired of it, just that I always love finishing a book! Makes me want to do a little happy dance. Super fun. Feeling pretty damn good.
Then I can start a new book. 😀
Didn’t see the ending coming that’s in this book and that I’m headed toward. Gotta admit, it’s like fshewy.
Was a bit busy this morning. After writing, I went to get the mower started and the darn mower wanted to be a pain in the butt. It didn’t help that the lever for the self-propelled function broke when I went to start it. Our mower is really heavy so at times I do like to use it when going up a little hill, through the really thick moss that’s in the front lawn, and things like that. I don’t always use it, but do need it, so I have to get that replaced soon. Twenty dollars just for that. Sheesh.
I apologize to all neighbors who received the blasts of smoke as the engine started, coughed, then died three times! lol I kept sweet talking it and everything. Come on, come on, come on. The one pull mower refused to cooperate so it took more like twenty pulls, some cussing, and some baby talk to get it going. First time since last Summer that it was used.
Then just after I finished the lawn, I took apart the housing where the lever was to see what was broken. And about that time we had a boy come over from a roofing company she talked to. If you live in the area they serve, this is a highly recommended company – Mountain Goat Roofing
They did the neighbor’s roof and I have never seen a roof that looked beautiful, but that one does. There are a few details that the company put down on the roof that makes it look really nice.
Been having a few tough days, so having things like this, and chatting with a few friends the past few days have really helped me get my mood back up there. I think a lot of stress started to weigh on me. Dealing with the roof, not having the money to fix it, having so many things to accomplish every day by myself, and then it all just compiled. I also have a friend that I’m worried over. He and I hadn’t talked in a long time and I discovered he screwed up again and got himself in trouble with the law. He’s not my responsibility, but it doesn’t stop me from caring and being concerned for him. We’ve been friends for a long time and I’ve been realizing some things that I overlooked back then. He got me through the worst part of my life and gave me support that I’ve never known in my life, as well as he’d just been kind when I needed someone to be. Had myself a good cry the other night and then asked for guidance from whoever was listening. I still don’t know if I believe in God, but I know that there is something out there and when we put out intentions or thoughts, we’ll receive help. Maybe it’s just a compilation of energy from all of us together. I’m open to anything.

Goal for this book is around 90K. Looking like it’ll probably be in the 80’s range. We’ll see. I usually put a lot in during editing so I’m fine with it being less than planned.
