Baby Steps!



I’m down to the homestretch on my book, WHY MERMAIDS SING. I’ve started on the climax scenes, and I’ve done the hardcore revisions on the rest of the manuscript. I’ve even looked up all the pesky facts where I had inserted [check] into the manuscript, and filled in the many blanks I leave sprinkled through the chapters as I write. Which is good, because the thing is due November 1st. I think I’m going to make it.

You’ve probably noticed that my postings are becoming less frequent as my deadline nears. I seem to have less time for everything these days. I can’t remember the last time I worked on the house, although Steve did finish building the pantry and got it fit into place this weekend. He still needs to trim it out, but I can now put our foodstuffs away and clear out the bookshelves that have been doing temporary pantry duty in the breakfast room for the last couple of months. One small step in getting the house back to normal. The pantry is great, by the way, with pullout shelves Steve built using the full-extension glides I salvaged from the unflooded drawers of my former kitchen when we ripped it out last fall. I find myself smiling about that, as I pull out the shelves to put away my groceries.

All right, now you're making me really envious about your great new kitchen. Full-extension pullout shelves--yeeehah! I, alas, have lost use of the bottom shelves of my cabinets. Lowering myself to the floor to get into them is near-impossible, because of the difficulty of getting up again...the wages of overweight and arthritis.

Steve sounds like a handy fellow to have around. He doesn't do contract work does he? (lol)
