The scene of the mayhem is my kitchen, Divinity Vines being the name of our property, where we are using bottled coyote pee pee to keep the deer from nibbling our new vines. Grapes next year, and perhaps wine the year after that!
Meanwhile, back in the kitchen, where it was 92 degrees yesterday (the AC is working today, thank GOD), ant corpses litter the counter edges where my sponge swiped a path through water-melon juice and the tiny, feasting army.
It was good to wake at a normal hour, seven A.M. being a bit later than I like to get up. The night before, however, I went to bed at midnight but couldn't sleep. I got up at 1 A.M. to work a bit, and then the sun came up!
Eight hours later, I had FINALLY updated my book (How to Make Money While You Look for a Job) with the really great content Chuck wrote for me, and with my interview with Peter Prestipino, Editor in Chief at Website Magazine.
When I was laid off in November I said, "The first thing I have to do is update my book." But I did everything except that.
Here's what happened: My chicken-self went to bed and my writer-self got out of bed. I snuck up on myself.
Here's what's happening now: I am completing the update and writing the press release, but first, I must more thoroughly cleanse the kitchen of my slain enemy's corpses, and never leave water-melon rind on my counter overnight again!
