Wearing: Royal blue V-neck and slinky black skirt.

Reading: The Tale of the Dueling Neurosurgeons by Sam Kean.

Writing: Still in the pit of No Writing Time. Elayna goes back to college on September 1. In the meantime, grabbing shards of time for the novel-in-progress, which still needs a better working title. I recently wrote two short stories that are a bit in conversation with each other, and I really really hope they both get bought by their first-choice markets and come out soon so I can talk about them dammit. I have SO MUCH TO SAY. And the particular angle I took in them is very clearly influenced by the novel-in-progress.

Knitting: Deviate for ashlyme in variegated dark reds, and Phi in navy and gold for Elayna (new college colors).

Planning: Oh, goodness. Tonight's a party (at which I see fairylogic, yay!); tomorrow, a cookout, a street festival, and a burlesque. Sunday has no plans in it thus far; there is a possibility, but a possibility is not a plan, and I'm keeping it open for potentially-necessary recovery time.

Wearing: lilac long-sleeved top, blue flared jeans.

Reading: "Radon Daughters" by Iain Sinclair.

Writing: "Other Voices" still; 7500 words? making a start on "Waiting For The Moon", achieved a little vignette called "Bird and Harlequin" on Wednesday.

Knitting: N/A :)

Planning: resolutely *not* planning for a visit from London friends on Sunday!

Wearing my favorite black nightgown. It is getting threadbare and needs replacing, but it is so comfy!
Just finished "Feed", one of the books on my son's summer reading list.
Don't knit... but I got into my studio Wednesday and Thursday

Just woke up from nightmares.... Have time & a little wifi

Wearing: blank tank top and blue pajama pants

Reading: whisker of evil, Rita Mae brown (have been rereading the entire series, but I believe this is the last one I read when I was younger, so the next one will be new....which may not be the comfort reading I've been looking for.)

Writing: nothing formal. But I'm missing having a computer to write in LJ. Especially after insecurity nightmares

Planning: the last few days in Amsterdam, and whether a friendship can handle adding make outs.

Well, it's Saturday, but I haven't slept, so I call it still Friday.

Wearing: Black. Jeans and t-shirt. No socks, as yet.

Reading: Hodgell, _The God Stalker Chronicles_. Reread; new copy to replace the one eaten by bedbugs.

Writing: Nothing right now, but considering another attempt at romance. Paranormal this time.

Listening to: Van Canto, "Fear of the Dark".

Planning: getting the day started.

You haven't done one of these in forever! I'd love it if you could get back to LJ posting on a daily basis. (While typing the previous sentence, I forgot that I'd switched from my work computer to my personal computer, so I sat starting at the screen for a long moment wondering which it didn't automatically change "qd" to "daily." Then I remembered and went back and changed in by hand.

Wearing: History Day t-shirt, khaki shorts.

Reading: Fiddlehead, Years of Rice and Salt, One of a Kind: The Rise and Fall of Stuey "the Kid" Ungar

Listening to: A doctor who thinks the solution to his poor dictation skills is to talk faster.

Planning: To dig out my sketchbook and draw something tonight
