Weird yesterday

Yesterday I came down with some sort of random stomach illness, and had to bolt home at noon. (I'm perfectly fine now.)

You'd think this would give me lots of alone time to write, right? Not really. I spent about 2 hours on the sofa watching Along Came Polly for the second time (my hubby asked why, and I said "because it was on." Yeah, I wasn't feeling well.). Then I took a nap for a while. Fortunately the nap helped, so I did manage to scrape out 428 words just before everybody got home. Still on schedule, with the bonus words I did this weekend.

Life, eh? Never what you expect.

Whadjya eat? Since I was all normal by dinnertime, I made my originally planned meal, one of our standards: vermicelli with roasted asparagus and tomatoes. Perfect for summer; I serve it cold. We had a fresh fruit salad (peaches, blueberries, and strawberries) with.

Eww. Those random stomach ailments are a pain in the...

Anyway, glad to hear you're feeling better. And that you got some writing in despite the tummy troubles.

I have a quick question: would you mind sharing with me how you got that cool word counter on your site?

Thank you!

Thanks, Deb!

Sure. The writing counter is from here:


Very easy to do. Just update your template every time you want to update the counter.

Thank you!

And how's the weather down there? It was freaking hot here for a while, but it's cooled off a bit, with cloud and some random showers. I hope it warms again, soon. I want to do a river float!

Oh, and have you booked your hotel room yet? I booked mine today!

:) Deb

Continued freaking hot, here. (Child actually said it was "freaking hot" the other day, and freaked me right out. {g})

And yep on the hotel room. I think I booked it in May!! Can't wait to see you there!
