Thought for the day

It's been a while. And it might be a little while before I post again, though probably not as long since I'm only about five chapters away from being able to say, "Finished!"

Of course, that's draft one. I was almost going to say that's the hardest part, but who am I kidding? Editing and revising can be just as hard and time consuming. But I'm not thinking about that yet. Much.

Anyway. On to the thought of the day which occurred to me this morning because it was the first quite chilly morning in a while, and when I got into the shower I thought, thank God for whoever came up with hot and cold plumbing. I mean, what is nicer than stepping into a steaming shower on a cold morning? Okay, the beach on Sanibel, but I can't have that whenever I want. I can, however, have a shower at any temperature I want and that is a very good thing.

I will leave you with some pics...





Round Pond, Maine, where I recently went to eat with my mom, most of my sisters, niece, and sister-in-law.


Two American Oystercatchers my son saw on a birding trip.

 And a Clapper Rail


 And a wicked pretty moth (butterfly?). 


Finally, there's this one, also taken by my son. I love the mist rising from the water. This will probably be my next header pic.

Stay well and be nice. There's a lot of hate out in the world these days which has been weighing me down so I'm really trying (not always successfully) to be nicer in thought and deed. Especially thought.

  3. Hooray for nearing the end of draft the first.
    Love the photos and am particularly taken with the birds, the flutterby and the mist over the water.
    And hooray for plumbing (and indoor toilets).

    1. That's too bad. We get them here, and they're especially pretty at first and last light.

  7. Congratulations on making such good process with your book. I'm too busy editing for another writer to have any time working on my own book. C'est la vie. It'll happen when it happens...

    Yes! Hooray for indoor plumbing. And air conditioning. I thank God for air conditioning every day. I'm still sweating after doing my 20 minutes on the dreadmill and vacuuming the house, so when I cool down a little, that shower's gonna feel mighty fine. (I don't think I'l need to use much hot water, though.)

    Good luck with making it to the finish line. And then the fun begins. :)

  8. Ah, yes, revisions...I'm going to psyche myself up for them so I love them. Or so I say...

  9. Enjoy your cool mornings. We just got warm here. But a warm shower sounds so good right about now. Sooner rather than later.

  12. Gorgeous pics, Marcy! And you're right; there's far too much hate in the world.

  13. That's definitely a butterfly - not sure of species, though. Don't think I've seen that one here.

    I love oystercatchers! They make me wish I had a bright orange bill for breaking open oyster shells.

  14. I really like taking a cool shower after working outside in the heat. ~grin~ Love those photos! If I had my wish, our home would be next to some body of water. ~sigh~ Be well, my dear.

  19. You're in the home stretch with only 5 left. Keep it up! Draft one is a win! I'm not a fan of the editing part because I never know when to stop. LOL!

    Love the pictures. I like the one with the mist too. Very cool shot.

    Hope you're doing well Marcy.
