We have already broken heat records here in Eastern Washington,
The airplane vinyl wrap project has been brought indoors. Imagine if you will, the heat buildup in a metal hangar! Even the spiders are exiting. There are a lot of small pieces that can be vinyl wrapped before the wings and body are done, so this isn't a problem. (Vinyl is an amazing alternative to spray paint, but time-consuming to put to on).
As you may know, my husband and I have competing projects. His is to paint the plane, and mine is to get my novel published. I'm bringing up the rear at this point. We had back to back family all last month. Loving the quiet house right now and helping occasionally with the plane project when he needs a second hand. (I'll admit that some days his project is simply more interesting).
I did devote two days this week to the book. A friend also visited early in the day and we spent the morning working on our books and social media. We've always talked about taking our computers to the library or the local coffee shop and doing this. It really was a pleasant change. Writing can be so isolating at times. Do any of you do the same? I recommend it
So.... haven't written much at all. The blog has taken a hit too. Drafts of two book reviews sit untouched in my notebook waiting to be written up. I think I'm dealing with brain drain in this heat, not to mention an awful tooth ache at the moment. Tomorrow I'm off to the dentist.
Looking for a bit of writing humor and needing a pick me up, I found the following. I hope you enjoy too!
