It's been a quiet day around the house. We slept in this morning (well, hubby had to go to work, but the two kids and I indulged), watched a movie, and then I decided it was time to tackle the laundry. My stepson did the dishes, took out the trash, swept the kitchen, and fed the dogs (all without being told! - Yeah, he's a good kid) while I worked on vacuuming, folding laundry, and stuffing more laundry into the washing machine.
This afternoon I've been working on query letters, bills, and putting away all those clothes I folded. Ella Fitzgerald has been keeping me company with some great music, and the basement office isn't too cold.
The kids and I have also been playing a Snoopy the Red Baron Playstation game. It's adorable. Since I collect Snoopy, hubby rented the game for me just so I could see what it's like. I love it when he does spontaneous things like that. :-)
On tap for tonight...I just put some supper in the oven and I plan to work on my novel. I also might crack open Sol Stein's Stein on Writing. It's been quite a few years since I looked at this book and I know I've grown as a writer since I last read it. I'm eager to jump into it and see what words of wisdom I can taken away from it.
