Much painting of trim-work today. Little writing. Got in some early morning time at the keyboard, then headed to the garage looking for unopened cans of paint.

Cabinet install is supposed to be complete tomorrow. After that, who knows? I pray for electricity, but hey, I pray to win the lotto, too. Batting .000 on both counts.

Got an acceptance slip from the editors of the Dalhousie Review today for my short story “Blues Legend.” The DR was founded in 1921, and its past contributors include luminaries like Margaret Atwood and Nadine Gordimer.

Thrilled? July's beginning to look tolerable again.
