Spring is in the air

I took this photo on Sunday. The hubby, daughter and I headed into the city again. It was a lovely day, so that always makes it that much better.

The hubby wanted to stop by the Broadway Shopping Centre, and I thought it would also be handy to walk a little and stop into Hyde Park to snap a few shots. The Ships in the Night tale that I finished revising on Monday has a few scenes in there. So I wanted to see and feel it for myself again. Been doing that a lot lately. And speaking of that tale, the hubby wanted to start on it last night, but didn't get the chance. Man, he didn't get home until about 8pm and that just threw the whole night out.

I feel like total crap today, didn't get enough sleep. :/ We'll have to catch up tonight. I sure hope he gets back at a good time today. It was a total shock to have him get home so late after he's been getting home at such nice and early times. Lol. Anyway.

Yesterday, I pushed myself and managed to get the second edits of CHRISTMAS LIGHTS done and emailed. Man, my editor's awesome. I truly, truly love the editing process. It's hard work, but so worth it! I love how much tighter and stronger it can make your story. Excellent. And I've still got a lot of excitement for this little X-mas tale. So that's cool. Just one more round to go...

I ordered my books for September yesterday, from the fave bookstore. Five this month! Lol. I'm starting to fall behind on my reading again. The TBR pile just gets bigger and bigger. But I can't stop, of course. There are just too many cool books out there. ;) Which reminds me, I grabbed WITCH FIRE from my bookshelf last night and read the first chapter. Oooooh, I'm totally intrigued.

We've had some awesome hot days this week, I hope it keeps up. I'm so ready for Spring and Summer!

Well, not sure what I'll be working on today... but you know I'll find something. :D

My hubby is making slow progress on Fool's Gold too. Sigh. It's 117 pages and I think he made it 1/3 of the way through. I'm off to our local fair with "the girls" tonight to see Heart in concert. Hopefully with me gone, he'll miss me so much he'll read my story (snort!)

I know I'm enjoying the editing process more and more as I get better at handing in a clean first draft. The comments are more about content than moving commas!

Gee, my hubby's having a crap week at work. And he still hasn't started to read the novella. I don't think I'm going to make the self-imposed-end-of-August-sub-deadline. :/

I hope your hubby has finished, though, Ericka! :)
