Good Morning, Monday!

Wolf HuntIt’s Monday!  And there’s the week, stretching out before.

Because yay, we made it through the weekend!  UHaul rented on Saturday, corral panels, pallets, and agility equipment moved (A-Frame…grunt), and lo!  The corral gate panel moved, too!  (We estimate this puppy at about 200lb of awkward, oscillating steel.)

Duncan Horse is now in a sized-down paddock, giving me a look that says you haven’t slipped this one past me, in case you’re wondering.

No toes broken!  No heads bashed in!  No fingers crushed!  And everyone’s standing up straight today!

Of course, I could sleep for a week…

But no!  This week has SO MUCH left to do!  Packing, packing, PACKING and ooh, a few more Blue Hound Visions chores to finish up before I go offline for the holidays, and hey, did I mention that book I’m trying to finish?  Demon Blade? I think the race to get it done by Christmas has been lost these past couple of days.

Maybe if I hadn’t come home from yesterday’s day-long adventure and drooled through the evening instead of working…but I did.  OR maybe if my muse hadn’t dug in her heels and said, “Excuse me, but I don’t think this transition is working.  I’m willing to go where you want to go, but find a different way to get there.  I’ll wait as long as it takes.”

Okay, I think we’re coming to an agreement on that one.

So it’s now full speed ahead!  The new cookies are frosted, the  boxes are ready to be packed, the office floor plan has been remeasured to the inch for planning purposes, and if the fence goes up as planned so the dogs are safe, we’ll even have our holiday dinner over at the new place as hoped!  Ooh, I’d love for the end of that book to be within sight on Thursday night…

And how’s it for everyone else?  If this is your holiday week, are you working full steam to the end, or are you taking the days to immerse yourself in the spirit of the season?

    What a fun thing to look forward to!!! Dinner in a new house! Congrats on getting so much done!

    Today we finish driving across Kansas. Such a huge state. Yesterday we saw a lovely hawk sitting on a fence post. Today we will see GREEN. You know. That color that the high plains only achieve for a few months of the year. But already we’ve made it far enough from home that there are forests of deciduous trees. One can hope for green.

      Green! What an interesting notion!

      Last weekend while unloading corral panels, we got strafed by a sharp-shinned hawk. Yes-!!

    You ICE cookies I would never have any left if I iced the before hiding them.

    The secret is, these are GF sugar cookies and without the icing, they are all of FAIL. So it’s not much of a problem to restrain myself. ;>

    There’s been talk bandied about that there might one day be a pill to take–like lactose-intolerant folks can take–for GF folks at mealtimes. If that ever came true, the first thing I’d do is make my family recipe holiday sugar cookies, which are the best I have *ever* tasted and are my absolute biggest regret about eating GF.

    Good grief! You are accomplishing so much,and I so little. I have a book to read (to blurb) AND write a synopsis and have only have a week to do it. Okay, my editor won’t be in his office until the 4th, so I have almost two weeks. What have I been doing? Shopping, wrapping, cards, and watching stupid (and I mean STOOPID) movies on the Hallmark channel. MIL comes to visit today–and we’re not the best of pals. I shall hide in my office for the next three days and do some work.

    Mwah ha ha! The trick is, I’m *planning* to accomplish so much…

    I hope you get your quiet time!
