Tower Wars, Lunch, and #AmWriting

It’s a cloudy Monday here, but temps are supposed to be in the 70s. Such bizarre weather this year. Anyhoo, I had a fabulous weekend. For starters, Son #1 was here. You regular readers know what that means. Bond’s arch nemesis, Sora, was also here. Lots of chases through the hallway, occasional hissing, and stealing of toys, food, and treats. Saturday afternoon saw an epic battle of Tower Wars. Faster than the speed of light paw slaps, carefully planned strategic maneuvers, artfully dodged claws – and Bond emerged the winner. Of this round, anyway.

On Sunday, Son #2 came over and made lunch. His Whiskey Scallops were superb, but I forgot to get any pics. I made some mushroom orzo and a salad as sides. It sure was nice to have the four of us around a dinner table. I also forgot to mention last week that Son #2 has been working on a German chocolate cake recipe and brought me a slice to sample. Absolutely delicious – and I’m not a big coconut fan. Being a guinea pig for his recipes sure comes with perks.

I continue to make progress with Book #5 – woohoo!. The ideas are flowing, but I still feel like I’m missing a piece of the puzzle that ties everything together. I tend to write out of sequence, so I’m thinking if I write around it, the characters will reveal it soon enough. Wish me luck.

Have a great week!

  1. What a wonderful weekend! I had all home last weekend and it was so nice. We had cat battles too. I don’t think we had a victor, though 😂. I know you will figure out that story – just keep at it. Have a great week!

    1. That’s great you had both daughters home, Tessa. Bet it was a big help for you, too. Whenever Sora is here, she and Bond are constantly on guard around each other, and then both are exhausted after she leaves, lol.

  2. Teri, you have me cracking up over the Tower Wars. Bond must be feeling pretty pleased with himself, LOL.
    And whiskey scallops? I LOVE scallops. They sound awesome.
    Good luck with your WIP. I’m sure the characters are going to tell you their plans!

    1. I wish I could have videoed it, Mae – it was certainly entertaining to watch. And the scallops were soooo good. One of Son #1’s favs, so he was pretty happy. This isn’t the first time I’ve had stubborn characters, so I can wait them out.

    1. They can get into some pretty good spats, can’t they? My son’s cat is a total Diva, and I catch Bond looking at himself in the mirror sometimes, so I guess they think they’re also pretty, Wendy, lol. Enjoy your visit!


  3. 1. OMG! Kitty pictures. Yes, please. Smackdown of paws can be both adorable and harrowing.
    2. Not a coconut fan either. I get it.
    3. I’m glad the writing is coming along. I certainly get the “missing puzzle piece” aspect. I’ve found that stepping away and not thinking about it can be helpful…sometimes. 🙂

    1. Kitty pics – always. The son who made the cake came over yesterday. He writes for his D&D game, and he’s good to brainstorm with. And we cracked it yesterday – woohoo! He mentioned an idea which caused me to remember something in my notes and it clicked. Finally!
