Today was a misfire.
First, the dogs had to go to the vet. Sophie needed all of her injections and Scout needed to get blood work to check on his kidneys. (Why are kidneys spelled kidneys and not kidnies?)
I got home, fixed another cup of tea because, really, how can one survive on one cup of tea, settled down to work and beep, beep…the power went out. The power stayed out over six hours and the temps were in the low 90s, not exactly the kind of day you wanted to not have air conditioning on, especially with hairy dogs.
Unfortunately because I work at home, I didn’t work. 🙁
So for my unscheduled sick day I read, or tried to read. Have you ever read a book that just made you want to bang your head against a hard solid object? It’s not because the book is bad, but it’s tedious. I keep wondering why did she write that? Why did she do that? Why is she involving all of these other characters? Why is she writing from this tertiary character’s POV? Do readers really like this?
Again, unfortunately, both of my ongoing books are like that. I agreed to read these two books for book tours so they will be read.
This too shall end.
Today wasn’t a bad day. I grew up in a house without air conditioning and kept reminding myself of that. It’s always good to go back to your roots. Heh.
And tomorrow always has the possibility of being better, much better.
