Taking a breath on Sunday with a hot-weather midday meal. Scrounging for whatever salad makings are left.
Scoring the last of the bleu cheese. Lots of corn nuts.
Finding a recipe for quinoa burgers that uses what I have on the shelves. (I added extra cheese and carrots and flax seeds.)  No writing today. On tap for the afternoon: organizing the sewing room, tossing clean laundry onto the red couch as it comes out of the dryer, a hike and watermelon with friends at Tucker Falls, a Sunday shower, then the baby blanket I'm crocheting for an almost-here baby along with watching Masterpiece Mystery with Cousin Carol, who lives in Mississippi. We watch at the same time and text our opinions along the way. "Eyebrows!" "It's the butler!" "I'm so confused!"
Ain't we all, sometimes, ain't we all.  Glad we keep at it, though, wading through the muck toward understanding.

Tomorrow: that pesky chapter three. Again, again, again. I'd love to hear what you're wading through right now, the grime and the glory alike.


  1. Hi Deborah,

    Your meal looks so delicious. We're eating grilled cheese and garden tomato sandwiches right now. I never like to rush this season, which is the glory before the downturn, but I do love it.

    I'm wading through a new work-in-progress. I've been enjoying it, but something was off for me until late last week, when the voice I've been hearing let me in on the secret of who he was telling this story to. It was like releasing a brake. Now the story is moving forward.

    In other, very splendid news, I'm going to be attending Vermont College of Fine Arts' MFA program in Writing for Children and Young Adults, starting in January. Yay!!!

  2. Deb Miller! Good for you, going to Vermont! Mazel tov. Glad your wip is moving forward, too. xo Debbie

  3. Wait! Not Deb Miller. Kathy! Mazel tov, Kathy. hahaha. I want Deb to go with you to Vermont, I can see. xo
