Hello and Happy Weekend! I have 8 days before a 2 week Christmas break. Part of me thinks it’s awful that I’m needing another long break so soon after the last one, but… I’ve had the classes from hell this week and I’m thanking God I won’t see them in my room again for 6 weeks. My bucket drums have arrived along with my drum sticks and I’m hoping to unpack them this coming week with my kids! Really looking forward to it! I’ll have happy pics up at the Donors Choose site by January.
My Christmas decorating is going slowly but coming along… I have 2 trees to decorate, but this past week has been crazy. At least my white tree – which will be all purple, silver and gold when complete is getting there.
No, it’s NOT done – I have a topper, obviously and about 75 LITTLE purple, silver, and gold ornaments to put on. I’ll probably put on my musical garland as it’s gold. Oh, you MIGHT have noticed if you looked close…
I have the living room and that 9 foot monstrosity in my dining room still. I’ll have pictures of everything when it’s done.
When I met the parental units to pick up Spawn on Tuesday, Mom made the comment – you’re off… Wednesday the 19th is your last day? So you’ll be home Wednesday night?
No. We’ll head up Friday or Saturday after. Little Sis is coming back with us to spend some sister time with me from the 27th through the 1st. I see a beach stroll and some Breakfast Club stuff. Maybe a trip to Charleston. Historical Savannah.
In the last 3 days, the Muses – ALL OF THEM – have gone off screaming. Even the two that have all but disappeared 12 years ago – yeah, the Elf and the Wizard.
For those who aren’t familiar with my creative insanity, I have FIVE distinct Storytellers living in my head who feed things. The Elf (HalMuse) the Wizard (Snapebaby) the 2 Rohirrim (Eekor and Gamlingman) and then the leather clad sex god. (who doesn’t really have a name yet!) Each has his own voice, lords over certain subjects.
Yes, it’s weird. Yes, I’m insane, but it works.
Either way The Elf and the Wizard have been silent as the grave for a long, long time and when the leather clad sex god stumbled over a WIP I’ve not looked at in years and pretty much decided was abandoned, informed me it WASN’T abandoned and set up a battle cry not heard in my head in a long time. Right now, I have screaming and tugging and viewpoints and… well chaos…. going on and when I can get my home decorated, I’m going to have a writing fest the likes I’ve not had in years and years. Someone up there in my cranium found ‘Blackmore’s Night’ and the stuff is just setting every story line in my head on a bingefest! Right now, this is the Leather Clad Muse’s favorite…
It’s busy up there. And strangely enough, there is no headache! That’s a good sign!
Okay, I’ve rambled long enough. Please enjoy today’s stolen Christmas Wall Paper.
