I've been tweaking my blog's template lately so if you've stopped by and thought you were at the wrong place, I hope you didn't leave or roll your eyes. Please don't go! Please bear with me. Actually, I wish there was a way to revert back to what I had, but it doesn't seem possible. Oh well....the big picture in my header now is one I took last summer on Lake Huron. I love the way the water foams and pools and how the sandy pebbles in the foreground stand out in sharp detail. Doesn't it make you want to pick one up and skip it? What I also liked about this photograph is the way the watery horizon seems to gently follow the curvature of the earth. I can't wait to walk that beach again.
After a week of summer weather it looks like March has returned. I put the plastic domes on my seed trays last night and hope the greenhouse stayed above 40 degrees.
If it rains, I'll sharpen my pencil and work on my manuscript. I love editing with pencil, the ease of erasure for a change in direction, the tweak to a minor character and the shrug of a shoulder, crossing out a pesky adverb or a redundant phrase or an uncharacteristic bit of dialogue. Those things are easy and fun to fix. It's the big changes that are hard: rewriting an ending, or correcting a major flaw in the narrative. It'll take a week of rainy weather to get a grip on that. And pot after pot of coffee.
Have a good week.
