I’m a little late with today’s post but I finally got to it. I went on an evening run and ended up going 4 miles for the second day in a row. It was nice for Alabama this time of year. We’re in a weather pattern where some evening showers are blowing up to take the humidity and heat out enough to make a run very comfortable.
I headed down our street a way that I normally don’t go since it usually has a lot of fast moving traffic. But there is a section of road down that way that is closed off for construction which meant my normal route was the detour road. It was interesting to run down that normally busy stretch of road with hardly any traffic. It was interesting to see that some people – aside from the local traffic – just didn’t seem to believe the signs and drove down to the construction anyway. I guess some people just needed to experience the sight first-hand.
While I was running a couple of storms drifted past the area. One went left and the other sailed right and I was stuck in the middle. As I approached the house I did see a bolt of lightning from the second storm. YIKES! I was glad I was near the house at that point.
Our apple tree has fire blight and it required we have it pruned back. Now it’s just a glorified bush. The tree was in such distress that it didn’t actually have that many apples this year. We hope it will sprout new limbs soon and again next spring and actually have more apples next year. Also, the mower deck isn’t ready yet but it should be any day. I completed all the regular maintenance on the tractor.
The fiction proposals have been completed and sent out to my agent. I think these two books are rounding out nicely though I don’t know when I’ll find out anything specific about them. Now it’s back to work on The White Arrow and I’m eager to work on it at this point. Also, I’ve come up with an idea for the cover so I’ll contact my artist and see what he thinks about it. I might have the cover by the end of the month at which time I’ll reveal the cover.
That’s all for today. Thanks for reading and feel free to leave comments.
We’ve been having a weather pattern of hot, hot (97 yesterday) with humidity. Probably what you’re used to most of the summer. No electrical storms yet but it’s just a matter of time. Glad you made it back home before the brunt of the weather hit.
Good luck with the proposals. Hoping it all works out well!
Thanks, Mae. We haven’t gotten the really hot weather yet but it’s will soon arrive. It never rained but seeing the lightning was a hair-raiser.
We’ll see what happens with the proposals.
Sounds like our weather pattern here in New York. I think we had a ten minute typhoon yesterday. Loved your post!
With the tropical storm affecting the gulf, we will have rain all week. Just got the mower fixed in time to cut the yard before the latest round of rain this week.
