It snowed in the night, and for most of the morning.
I modeled today.
The milk went off.
When I got home, I dug out the sides (partial) of the raised beds. I did a better job on the annuals bed for a lot of reasons - it's annuals, so it doesn't matter if I mess with root systems, for a start, and also because the annuals bed isn't covered by a canoe, whereas the perennials bed is TOTALLY covered by a canoe. This is intentional. It keeps the canoe off the ground, and it allows the perennials a little bit of extra shelter from the elements. So it's part of the The Plan. But it makes digging things out a bit more difficult.

Anyway.

I bought three books today. New ones, from Chapters.
I bought @Yuki_Ona's The Girl Who Soared Above Fairyland and Cut the Moon in Two. I bought Amanda (Fucking) Palmer's The Art of Asking (which started as a TED Talk, and which is about Using Your Words to actually state what you WANT - not just what you need, but what you want). And I bought Liz' Gilbert's (of Eat, Pray, Love fame) book Big Magic which is about creativity and expansiveness and, equally to the point, about following your curiosity rather than your fear (which I sure as all-get-out need help with).
It's been a self-help kind of day in that regard.

Listening to Delta Rae. Trying to do something with The Novel again, just because I, well... because I can, because I don't actually want to abandon this thing, even if I have no clue how to make it work or get it where I (think I) want it to go. Because I can. So there's that.

Things I want to do today:
Write a bit of Novel
Shave my legs
Make a video
Record 2-3 chapters of Kushiel's Dart for The Archivist
Help The Moderatrix get the last of her stuff moved into her new place (YAY!) and then eat dinner with her (YAY!)

'Kay. Gotta go write. :-)


TTFN,
