I will be the Queen of Hearts, Baby is the White Rabbit, Granddaughter Alice in Wonderland, Daughter the Cheshire Cat, Son-in-Law the Mad Hatter for trick or treating tonight. lol We’ll be going to an Escape Room Alice in Wonderland themed outdoor adventure on Saturday with a friend–not sure what she’s wearing yet!
Today is a Story Book parade at the school this morning, so I need to walk over there soon.
I worked on edits on Roxie’s story yesterday. I need to finish those up today, then just waiting on one more beta reader’s edits and I’ll finish it up. I also managed to get to 43K yesterday on Warrior’s Elf. I kind of have an idea for the ending, so worked a little on that.
The paint I used on my pumpkin didn’t work out. lol So it looks like a 3 year old painted it. But that’s okay. I never said I could paint. 🙂 My son-in-law on the other hand did a great job on his. I ran home and got the other paints and they worked. And my granddaughter played on my pumpkin too, then painted a couple of more pumpkins of her own. Of course I had to play with my little grandson too. My daughter did some great carvings on pumpkins too. So fun was had by all! Oh, and we sort of watched Hocus Pocus 2. We were so busy that I will have to watch it again without all the interruptions.
Today is a writing day. No goofing off. Tomorrow is another broken up day. In the morning, I have to go to see my granddaughter in a storybook parade, pick her up in the afternoon, and trick or treat with the family in the evening.
I wrote only 300 words yesterday on Warrior Elf. My Energizer Bunny ran down. 🙂
Today we’re painting or carving pumpkins and having lunch around 1. So I’m hoping I can get some writing done today before I run over there and then after I return home. I am at 42K and plan to do around 50K, maybe more on Warrior Elf, depending on the telling of the story. Then I’m off to work on Bear in Mind, though a snow leopard keeps telling me she wants her story told too. I do already have 24K written on Bear in Mind, so it would be nice to finish it, though I might write the opening scene for the other since I keep thinking about it.
That will be me on Saturday–painting a pumpkin. I did one last year instead of carving it and I loved it. It was so much fun and the pumpkin lasted forever! Here in our heat, they just melt into goo before you know it when you carve into one. This is my son’s cat. She is the sweetest baby and the alpha. If his dog was on my lap, she’d push her off and replace her.
We got in late last night on the trunk or treat. It was a lot of fun. Today it’s supposed to rain all day. This has been the driest year so far. Saturday we’re carving, or painting, pumpkins and having lunch.
I’m up to 38k and am shooting for 40k today on Warrior Elf. I need to have lunch with my granddaughter. I believe it’s going to be warmer again today. Yesterday was really nice, but strong winds had blown a branch off a neighbor’s tree and into my shrubs. I’m hoping the garbage men will take it away. 🙂
I’m off to work and then walk to her school, home again, work a couple of hours and back to her school. Have a lovely day!
Do you ever feel like this? When I was a little girl, we were in the woods in Florida on a trip and some butterflies scared my sister and me. My dad was so annoyed with us. lol Just for your information, I make butterfly habitats for them and try to teach my granddaughter not to be scared by them or dragonflies. They just startle her sometimes. Otherwise she loves them.
I made it to 31K last night on Warrior Elf. Woohoo!
My granddaughter had her fun run to help renovate their library. She managed 24 of 30 laps and both her daddy and I got to cheer her on, so that was neat. So proud of her. And my daughter and I watched a Halloween story, ladies’ night out, and had pizza and champagne, which was really nice too. We truly enjoyed it. We hadn’t done that in a year or more.
I made 1,000 words yesterday, not enough time to do more, but I’m up to 28K, so that’s great! Hope to be up to 32K by the end of the weekend.
