Summer Storms

I’m sitting on the back porch, slow grilling a pork loin. One small cloud came over head and drizzled a light sun shower. It smelled clean and sweet as the rain mixed with the trees and the grass, making me wish for a hard core thunderstorm. I don’t know why I love them so much, but honestly they are one of my favorite things. I always sit on the porch to watch them, no matter how violent they may be. Even when lightning is striking the lake behind my house I enjoy sipping on a drink and watching the chaos of the storm.

I haven’t been reading as much as I like, but I think that has something to do with stress. Oh and running around like a chicken with my head cut off. Still as of this week, I’m going to start reading like an addict once again. Hey everyone gets burnt out on something every once in a while. I’m just not used to having it happen for reading.

I started Once Bitten, Twice Shy by Jennifer Rardin. I’m only a few pages into it so I don’t have an actual opinion of it yet, but I do have to say that Jaz’s snarky dialogue intrigues me. Again though, I don’t really know much more than that because I’m not too far into yet.

My story on the other hand is being an ever-loving pain in the ass. Sometimes I just want to shake my laptop and see if the worlds scramble around to make better sentences than I’ve written. Then I realize I would probably kill my computer and might wind up going to prison for computer slaughter. Besides, I don’t have the money to buy a new one right now.

It seems that at the beginning of June I’ll be heading down to Lauderdale to meet my husband’s god sister. She’s pregnant and coming down to visit her father. At least that’s what I think is going on. My husband isn’t the greatest person in giving you the details of a situation. You have to know the right questions to ask, but I was just happy to hear that we were going down South to visit, so I didn’t bother.

This is going to be a short post. I just wanted to get some thoughts down and update the blog a bit. I’ve been extremely busy and don’t really have that much to say at the moment, but hey even when you feel like you have writer’s block you need to push forward. Even if what lands on paper is the worst gibberish it gets you moving. Besides even statues are just giant blob of stone or clay before the artist chips away and molds them into a masterpiece. Push past the crap. Keep writing. That’s my motto.
