Thankfulness #118: Beautiful Day
Today was a beautiful day – I like it either warm or else cold and damp. I know, it’s weird. Other people see a wet, foggy, drizzling day, with temps in the 40s or 50s and they stay indoors. I go “whoo hoo!” and run outside because I love it. The brisk breeze, the little burn of each prickly drop of moisture as it smacks your face – I find it invigorating. I think I was a viking in a past life. Or British, maybe.
Anyway, we went to Omaha to do some pokemoning. I made my target steps, so hey, that’s something, and we walked all around the mall, down to where it hooks on to Heartland of America, which we’ve never done before. It’s not as far as I thought it was. The whole mall area is really neat, with lots of fun sculpture benches, cool paths, little bridges and some giant slides (alas though no one was on the slides for a change, there was a lake at the bottom of them).
It was still beautifully misty after dark, but by then we were no longer pokemoning by then (I’m not crazy).
In other news, I sent the book off to round 2 betas, though I still need to flesh out chapter one and two a little bit. But, I needed to get it sent ff so the betas had time to read it without having to rush as the last minute. It’s not their fault I’ve been slow because I do things like go to the park instead of staying home and working.
And now I leave you all to do some of that work.
Have a brisk weather kind of day!
(The eye shadow was worth sharing.)
Thankfulness #117: Beta Round One
Today I am grateful for round one betas (Mom, Penny, and the bro) whose suggestions and corrections have hopefully made this mess readable for round two. Yeah, I am still up. I’m adding in a prologue before I send it to the other betas later today. I had a flashback scene that covers the space between books, but the consensus was it needed to be expanded so I just did a prologue instead. We’ll see what round two thinks.
Let’s see. It rained. I didn’t get to go pokemoning. But I did get to watch Jonathan live:
Oh, and hubby made something fun at work. He couldn’t bring t home, but he put a pic on Facebook, so hey, that counts.
And now I need sleep. Have a Beta kinda day!
