Winding up...

Up early. Had a quick cup of coffee before young J woke, then off to IHOP for breakfast. What a terrific sleepover. Ate ersatz chicken valeria for dinner, watched Monsters, Inc., and read Kipling’s “How the Rhinoceros Got His Skin.” Much happiness all around.

Got a little bit of writing in during the afternoon, but spent most of the day getting the Halloween decorations out of storage and hunting for new accoutrements. Pretty weather. Hope a little of it lingers for Halloween night.

Lots going on tomorrow. Need to start pushing harder. Feel as if I’ve been on vacation since putting the long work down.
