The most helpful blog post on writing I read this week was by Kathryn Craft at The Blood-Red Pencil. It’s called Busted! – Edward Stewart Caught Telescoping POV.
I’m reading Duma Key by Stephen King. Makes me want to get off the computer and just read all weekend.
Today will be the day I get my sun tea jug out of the back of the cupboard and set a mixture of green tea, Celestial Seasonings Tension Tamer, and Peppermint tea bags out to brew. Hopefully the sun will cooperate.
The Farmer’s Market that’s only a hop, skip and jump from my house has opened for the season. Last week I picked up homegrown asparagus. Today I’m hoping to find a bit of rhubarb so I can make the Caramelized Rhubarb Custard Pie with Fresh Strawberries featured on my friend Angela’s Seasonal and Savory blog last year.
A new business in our area, Urban Farm Company of Colorado, intends to encourage 1,000 new urban gardeners to grow their own food. The owner, Bryant Mason, installs ready-to-grow raised garden beds and will even do the planting and coaching for customers if needed. He’s going to pay a visit to my yard next week and help me decide where to put two 4×4 raised beds to replace the regular garden in the back of the yard that became infested with thistles and is now filling in with grass. I want the new beds closer to the house where they’ll be easier to water and weed. I’ll do my own planting, but building the beds and loading them up with good dirt was more than I wanted to tackle myself. This be much nicer.
As for writing, I’m still doing umpteen things at once. I’ve come to realize I like it that way.
See you Monday. Have a great weekend.
