Every Step

Hi Folks,
They say every step forward is a step towards the goal, a.k.a. progress. In that case this past week was fun and we made progress. You’ve got to love it when it works.


The weather has been hot, and I don’t do well in the heat, but there were lots of bright spots. For example, on our way to the city the other day we spotted a whale in the harbour. He was quite far away and all we had for a camera was my phone. Charis kept her eyes on the area where he was and clicked away, but we’re not certain if we got that camera shy guy’s picture or not. It’s just a black spot, can you find it?

On the other hand, we made good progress on the studio extension. We got the rest of the siding on and the painting started. Now we’re just waiting for the electrician. Once he’s done his thing we can finish it and press it into service. (K has already ordered more equipment)

Ah yes, ROW80.

It wasn’t a complete loss here either. I will confess that, in the heat, I just nap and do little else. In spite of that early morning writing has given me another four thousand words. The best part? There’s no end in sight yet. You see, I love telling the story. Once it’s finished then I have to come back to Earth for a while until the next story carries me off on another adventure. I have such a hard life. Tee hee
So, that’s it for me this week folks, what have you all been up to? Drop me a line, I love to hear from you.

Beaver in the Backyard

Hi folks, yes it does look like a beaver has set up shop in my back yard. In truth it is a pile of branches from dead trees we had to cut down. It will soon be manufactured into firewood for next winter’s pleasure.


As you can see the addition to the studio is ready for paint on the outside. Now we need the electrician before we can insulate and finish the inside. All in good time.

Now for the ROW80 check-in.

I managed another five thousand words this week as well as reading and commenting on several blogs. My goal for the last session was 10K per week, but that’s not realistic for me over the summer. I’ll drop that goal to 5K per week for this round. 

I’ll also try to up the blogs to reading and commenting on at least two each day. As they say around here, “Let’s git ‘er dun!”

I now have to get some new material together for the newsletter. Don’t forget to sign up for that one. The link is at the top right of the page. See you there!
