Yes, I’m singing it. You can’t type or say those words without singing them.
As I write this, it’s already 80 degrees with a dew point of 73. It’s supposed to hit 98 later. We might actually make 100, something that doesn’t happen in this part of the world often. Forecast calls for an exceptionally steamy week, with temps in the 90s every day. The a/c is running in the bedroom, and the door is ajar with a box fan in front of it, drawing cool air into the living room.
MN’s state fair is going on right now, as is the Renaissance Festival. I shudder to think of how many people are gonna be passing out and falling over as they trudge around under this sun. The fair doesn’t appeal much–I’ve seen plenty of cows and horses in my life, and home ec projects don’t do much for me–but RenFest would be fun. It runs through September, so I still have a chance to go when this heat wave passes.
I’m wearing shorts and a T-shirt, and so far, that’s pretty comfortable. Later, the tee will come off. I have no plans to go anywhere today. Even letting Suki out is going to be an experience in this kind of heat. I scootered down along the river last night, and the air was already dense and heavy.
I’ve been up since 5 a.m. Couldn’t sleep, so I read in bed with Kindle. Can you believe it? Some asshole knocked on the door at 5:30. There’s a light on so they think it’s okay to bang on the door? Whoever it was did it three times. I didn’t move so much as a toe.
I don’t answer the door at that time of the morning. AJ was up and in the shower; he didn’t hear a thing. Suki looked at me and wondered if she should bark. I told her no. She looked disappointed. The visitor finally went away. I don’t know who it was and I don’t care. That was incredibly rude.
I am planted on the couch, about to start a day of writing. I’m pretty sure I won’t make my arbitrary October 1 release date for Transgressions, but it will come out sometime during that month. I want it to be right, and that means taking a little more time with it.
The YA book, on the other hand, is coming along nicely. I have a title, which I’m sitting on for the moment, and an interesting plot. Let’s just say it deals with the Maya culture, though admittedly, I take some wild liberties with it. I mean, I have to in order to write the story. 🙂
It’s another Monday. Do the best you can with it and stay cool!
