My daughter, Aria, and I spent most of five hours at an outdoor wedding and reception yesterday. It was really nice, with no less than half dozen ‘why didn’t I bring tissues?!‘ moments.
Today, I’m reminded of two things. One. Fresh air makes me really, really tired. Like for two days. Why? Because I’m used to air conditioned or heated office air and my body isn’t quite sure what to think of all that fresh stuff. And two. While I love a lot of music – everything from Dean Martin to Aerosmith to the Backstreet Boys – I do not and never will love super loud hard rock music filled with language so shocking I wanted to hold my hands over Aria’s ears for fear she might repeat some of it.
Yeah, I guess I’m getting older…
Still, it was a beautiful wedding and I wish the happy couple well on their new life together.
It makes me kind of excited for the couples in some of my new stories. I didn’t get everything I wanted done for Camp NaNo because the decision that it was time to get most of my books (all of the fiction anyway) in the biggest online bookstores meant I had to devote a big chunk of my time and energy to actually getting them there.
But Weko 1 is nearly done. I’m doing a final read through and edits before sending it off to two of my favorite people. I’ve also started a couple of more stories. I figure if other authors can work on two or three at a time, so can I. Right?
LOL…well, we’ll see if I can.
For now, I’m going to go get some ice cream, and then I’m going to get through as much of Weko 1 tonight as I can because I really want the rewrites out of the way in the next two or three days. I’m also going to leave you with a video. The disc jockey played it during the father/daughter dance last night.
This isn’t from that wedding I attended but I love it anyway. I can just see all of my heroines – those who have fathers anyway – dancing with their dads. Especially… Well, I’ll just say when I think of one of my favorite guys in Her Best Friend Jon (affiliate link) dancing with his daughter at her wedding, it brings tears to my eyes too.
