I hope your week is going well. I have been dealing with a case of the blahs lately. I am just tired and so unmotivated. P.R. seems to think it is because the first real business trip for P.R. since the pandemic began is coming up soon. P.R. will have to go out of town for a few days. tour plants, go out to dinners with clients, etc..
I won't lie, I am a little apprehensive about his trip, in that I do not trust other people to be conscientious and protect his health, but I would not say I am "worried." I feel like I'm too tired to be worried. Maybe it's the weather.
We started out the summer like we were going to live in an oven for months. We even broke down and finally bought a little portable "air conditioner" that chills the air with water and ice packs. Then, the weather turned. It has been unseasonably cold and rainy ever since. Perhaps we should have bought the air conditioner sooner to stop summer heat years ago. Kind of like washing your car to make it rain. It's so chilly today, I am wearing my good heavy winter sweater and I'm still a bit cold.
I am so tired I really want to stop writing this blog and go take a nap, but there isn't time for that. I never take naps so this is weird for me. P.R. always says you should not force things like cooking or writing. If you aren't feeling it, you aren't feeling it. Perhaps P.R. is right.
I did manage to make a map of Sharon Springs on the computer which will be in the next book. I like things like this because it helps me visualize things better. It only has one outhouse on the map but that is because that one is specifically mentioned in part six, Into the West: To Save Them All. It is also off kilter as far as the compass. That is just how it is in my head and I could not figure out how to draw it out bearing due North. It just looked wrong!
The map is also not to scale. It is just a general representation of how the town is laid out. I think I might share it on the Members Only page before the next book comes out. If you want to join, it's free to join and you are free to quit at anytime, no strings attached . . . ever! I just use the Members Only page as a way to give a bit extra to the people who actively follow me and my books.
How are things going for all of you? Is life starting to get back to normal for you? Did it ever stop being normal for you? What do you do when you just do not feel being active? I have so many questions. I would love to hear from you all. Maybe get a little outside inspiration!
Have a great Wednesday, Posse!
