Big Fat Zero

Week number two with little or no words written. It feels good. I have a story to finish and I've been given a weeks' reprieve. Maybe I'll finish it in time, maybe I won't, though it will get finished soon.

I think I mentioned I watched all the Harry Potter movies with my family last week and the week before. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is my favorite so far. Daniel Radcliffe has a new fan, so I'll be checking out some of his other work soon. I've also started reading the books. Only 60 or so pages left of the first book, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.

I painted this past Saturday, too. My spare/guest room. I'm taking pictures as I go. And it's all very thrilling. It's gone from a stark white room to a room that's half white and half "Cream of Mushroom". Yes, laugh, Mom. It's quite funny since I hate the soup. But the color's quite nice and matches the bed spread. My DD and I only got one coat up as a) the room took a really long time to dry b)we need to buy another gallon as the room soaked up the paint like a sponge and c) I was really sore from all that rollering over my head. Plus my legs were really achy, although whether from painting or not, I don't know. Hubby had to give me two hard-core massages and the knots are not gone yet.

The weather here is great, again. I slept with the windows open again, too.

You are funny!! I think you should have put a primer on before you painted. When was the last time that room was painted? You can even have the store tint the primer to almost match the paint. Ah well, next time huh?

Will this be your last story, or will you continue to write? For a magazine maybe?

Have fun finishing your spare room!
Love you

Well, the paneling (lower walls) has primer and the upper walls have plain white paper, but the ceiling is what soaked it all up. And I was very generous with the paint. :)

No, not my last story. I really enjoy writing fan fiction. I can't see giving that up for a very long while.
