I have had a lovely day. I woke up excited this morning because I figured out the overall plot line for my next novel which I plan to write in November which is National Novel Writing Month. It will be the third time I’ve done this and I enjoy the challenge. Between now and then I need to do a lot of planning, as well as doing a good review of my first two novels so that I stay consistent. Anyway, it was very exciting to get the idea as I had been stewing over it for quite awhile. Leigh started painting my walkways and decks today. I’ve decided to do five colors in a varied pattern (the sixth color to “complete” the rainbow is, of course, the purple of the house) and so far it is looking great. Leigh has done a first coat on four of the five colors and I am really liking it a lot. Don’t know why I didn’t think of this ages ago, but I am thrilled with the possibilities now. I’ve planned out the back decks and ramps and I think Leigh will be starting on them tomorrow, after finishing the front with the green stairs. It is most exciting! While Leigh was painting, I finished piecing all the squares for Josie’s two quilts. Maybe tomorrow I’ll have time to start laying them out. I also had a doctor’s appointment, after which I read more of a wonderful book.
