Elizabeth Culmer, only a *little* bit crazy...
14 June 2019 @ 12:19 pm
Thursday was another slow day of mostly doing nothing, though I did pitch in to help Mom and Dad haul a tabletop up from the dock and then figure out how best to get it to fasten securely to our existing (too small for large family dinners) table. I ran a load of laundry, and then we left just past 4pm to run a couple errands and drive to Walker to eat dinner at the Boulders, where we met Nick who'd driven back up from the Twin Cities after some inconclusive work toward untangling his medical insurance thing. (He has set some relevant processes in motion and now has to wait for other people to get back to him. So basically phone tag, but with physical letters. *sigh*) And in the evening, after getting home, we had champagne cocktails and played multiple rounds of Hearts, because that's what we do as a nuclear family. :)

So far today I have been poking a little at a stalled story, and I think I've finally untangled all the bits where I was shoving down a misguided path and am ready to move on to new material. Unfortunately, said new material includes an action scene. I don't want to write an action scene today. Why do I do this to myself?

Also, Verizon has decided we've used up our data plan and dumped us into safe mode, which is annoying since we don't have an internet provider on the island anymore (we used to use a satellite dish aimed east-northeast toward a station on the mainland, but they either went out of business or decided the island wasn't worth the expense) and have to use our phones as mobile hotspots. What this means is that I can load text-based pages, but anything image-heavy is a no-go, to say nothing of gifs or videos. *headdesk*

Oh well, that means I have more time for reading actual books, I suppose.
