Guests?


Who out there would like to be my guest? We can talk about what you do, we can talk about what you like, we can talk and talk and talk...and then I will transcribe it and share it with everyone! Come on, don't be shy....you know you want to! Let me know...

Last night our first houseguest of 4 this month, arrived. I had spent the day doing crazy, we-have-a guest-coming- things! These usually include small projects like cleaning the house,transforming my office daybed to guest bed, arranging flowers, doing laundry and grocery shopping, to larger ones like obsessing over the garden, trimming the trees, mulching, raking, washing front steps and windows. At about 4:30, I finally showered and then sat at my desk and did homework, critiqued a fellow writer friend's excellent pages and stewed about my own writing. By 10:00pm I was done and our friends plane was delayed. I wanted to stay up, so I made another homemade soup, hoping that the cleaning and chopping would help me stay awake, and it did. Finally, just before midnight our friend Frank arrived and it was just after 1:00am when we all got to sleep. Six and a half hours later, I am up and back at it. The house is quiet, the guys have gone golfing and I am ready to have a day tackling a huge scene in my novel. I want to work my butt off, so that I can play tonight. That's the thing about guests, their visits are like sweet rewards that make all the effort worth it!
