Humber Creative Writing Course, The Year of the Fairy, and Mom's Quilt, Amazing Donuts, Pincushions and Simply Stitch . All of these have had deadlines of one sort or another, Now! Poor Hot Flash Woman has been languishing in the land of nowhere for several months now. I'm hoping she revives in the Spring.
Today, I am concentrating on.....
The Humber Creative Writing Course. I have submitted over 100 pages for commentary from Richard Scrimger, children's author. I managed to get to the final chapters, but there are billions of revisions and additions needed for page one to over one hundred. This pile of paper needs going through and thinking about. There is one month left. Hurry, hurry.
While eating donuts with our friends at breakfast, we talked about the trip to France that isn't going to happen this spring, but instead we talked about Turkey. The kind you go to. Looks like Steve and I are booked to go to Turkey in the late spring with a tour group from Carlton University. We are very excited. Yesterday, I asked Steve which piece of his wardrobe will be the pivot point of his packing. Joking really, but he needs to buy some summer cotton shirts with long sleeves. There is rarely strong enough sun here for Steve to worry about it, but in Turkey, he will fry. Apparently, men don't think this way. They think, open the suitcase, through things in. Maybe they think, do I have enough underpants. And my razor. End of thinking.
Whereas I am already staring at shoes, trying to figure out which shoes will get me the farthest, both in terms of miles walking and fashion vanity. And what about sunglasses. I don't mean to sound trite, but occasionally these things consume me, until I succumb and buy something. Hopefully on sale. Hopefully a book to read.
Now, if this bloody internet, which has had it in for me for the entire month, will cooperate, I can post this blog and eat lunch.
