Guess what, I got my writing on again this morning, I worked on my Ella Rose book and bringing out the presence of two more characters for the new situation. I must say, these two male figures are something else. But hey, what can I say, they have the attitude of 11 graders, looking for their swag as they try to get the attention of Ella Rose who is not your typical teenage female.
Six pages written so far, and I am not sure how long this is going to be, but I am thinking this might be a good long read. In other words, it might not be a short story. You know I am good for writing short stories. But this one may turn out to be different. We will see. But so far, so good. I am pleased with what was written today.
Thanksgiving is right around the corner and I made my grocery list out. Yeppers, I am cooking up a storm. I love cooking for special holidays. I love the smell of turkey roasting, that lingers all through the house, not to mention the baked goods. I think I am going to make a Caramel cake. I saw that on Facebook and my mouth started to water, which means I must make it. Dunkin Hines here I come. I gave up on making homemade cakes a long time ago. I for some reason, just can't do it. I mess them up every time and ended up putting them in the trash. It got so bad, my husband would tell me in the mornings before going off to work, not to bake a cake because I was wasting ingredients and money. But, I didn't listen and everyday there would be a whole messed up cake in the trash. All this happened when I was a newly wed. You know how you do when you want to impress and show off your skills. Oh well, that's why Dunkin Hines is my friend to this very day. Oh, and don't ask me about my peanut brittle like cookies and my rock hard biscuits that would kill someone if you threw them at someone's head. Those were some funny days way back then. I can laugh at them now since it is 2013.
How many of you out there on FB play Candy Crush? That's what I've been doing in my spare time and when I unwind. That game is so addictive and I love it. So many people are way ahead of me. Getting through those levels, wiping out the cotton pickin chocolates because they keep getting in your way, and that just drives me nuts. I never thought I'd ever say I hate chocolate. LOL I am on level 64 or is it 65? I have a long way to go to make it up in the 3 digit levels. But, I don't care, I am not in a rush, because I have other things to keep me occupied and busy. Like I said, that's my unwinding game.
Oh, my granddaughter is in a school play and she got a major part. They are doing "The Wiz". She gets to sing and act and dress up as Evilene, the wicked witch of the west. I must say......the girl is awesome. A star will be born on December 11. That's when they give their performance.
Hubby almost has his new garage finished too on the outside, just in time for the winter. It looks good too. He put up doors, siding and windows. it looks like a little cottage sitting in our backyard. I can see a little garden back there. Oh, I forgot, that's his little space. However, I don't think he will mind if I add my little touch to the outside of his man cave.
Well, it's that time again, time for me to go and think about dinner. How am I going to fix this chicken and pasta dish? I have something concocted in my head, I hope it comes out like I plan for it. If it does, it's going to be mouth watering good. One thing for sure, it will not turn out like my homemade cakes and biscuits of long ago.
Have a good one y'all.
