The fire near us is now at 57% containment and that’s good news even though it burned over 504 structures. Up north, the “camp” fire destroyed an entire town. What a horrible couple of weeks it’s been for everyone here. I hope the winds leave us alone for a while, we need a break.

The weather report coming up for the next week or some promises a mild Thanksgiving holiday, which is very much welcome. As I have said I start my week off as the day ends tomorrow and I look forward to it even though I have many household chores.

My writing goal is to finish the Christmas story (still unnamed). I am writing the sex part at the moment. Once that story is finished I will feel much relief.

I saw on the news today something sad. A while back there was this big story about a “GoFundMe” account set up for a homeless man after he gave a woman his last $20 so she could get home. People donated all kinds of money. Now it turns out the whole thing was likely a scam to get people’s money. What kind of horrible people take advantage of warm-hearted generous people like that to steal their money and good will? These people need to go to jail and I hope they do. The moral? I say, sadly, don’t give money to any of these things, unless YOU personally know their circumstances.

Rambles of the Week, November 11, 2018

Well, this has been a challenging week to say the least.

I have been without internet and television for a few days now but it finally is back on.

Crazy dying. I still can’t quite wrap my brain around that, honestly. I keep expecting to come home and have her greet us at the door as she has for the last six years. And she…doesn’t.

I think Luna might actually like being the center of attention. We will see. M says that it’s me more than Luna that wants another one and he might be right. But there’s no hurry. We have enough to deal with right now.

The fires. Wow. I don’t even know how to describe it. We made it home Friday night. Many of my co-workers had to be evacuated from their houses. I don’t know if any of them lost their home but I guess we will know soon enough.

But as I was looking outside my bedroom window about 5:30 Friday night, I saw flames  on what looked like the hills by our townhome. I freaked out and eventually M couldn’t stand me anymore and said we’d go up to the parking lot of the mall behind our house to see what we could see. To my relief, it was quite a bit further away than I thought it was. I calmed down and we returned home. Later that night I saw that the flames were gone and all I can say is the firemen are absolutely phenomenal.

Saturday the winds calmed down. They were able to make a tiny bit of progress.

Today the winds are back with a vengeance and everyone is freaked out and on edge.Worse, the winds are supposed to last for days.

I got no writing done this weekend, obviously, except that I wrote something super quick. I got a request to start posting flash fics on Fridays again so you can expect the first one to come this Friday.

That’s the news coming from me this week. Please hope and pray for us that it doesn’t get worse.

This corner is right by my work! There you go, a glimpse into weekday life for me.

Probably should have the next part of WDPLUF up where you are reading this but the truth is this week has been…challenging.

Nevertheless I got a lot done on my updates on AO3, so that’s something.

My Christmas story is up over 10,000 words now and I am up to the part where I am writing sex. Which of course means I am stalling! HA

Busy weekend of stuff to do both Saturday and Sunday. Ugh. You know how I feel about that.

Next to update when I can is My Heart’s a Virgin. Things were looking up for our boys as Spock asked Jim to stay. So that should be a good update. Also All I Ever Wanted is after that. Spock and Jim are experimenting with memories and mild melds.

Anyway, we’ll see what I can get done what with work and socializing etc.

Friday is Outlaw King (not Wednesday like I thought…oops)

We aren’t ready to do this in the very near future, but M and I have talked about getting another kitty for Luna and for us. I’ll keep you posted on this.

In the meantime, be well, my friends, and remember to be kind to yourself.

Leaves

Okay, so this past weekend I updated both When I Loved You and Didn’t We Almost Have it All. And did a one-shot called Seriously. Not bad. Wasn’t sure I was going to get to update anything this weekend.

During the week I will try to get an update to my Kirk family story, The Ties That Bind. One may wonder where Spock is in this story. He’s coming. I promise. That’s the last one that hasn’t been updated since September. So I’m making progress.

Where My Demons Hide comes after that and I am on the course for the end for that one. I hope to have it finished soonish. Maybe when I get to it, I will just write it to the end. Maybe not. Because, I also need to finish the Christmas story and get serious on the T’hy’la Bang story.

The good news for those last two is they will be finished when posted. A really hard thing for me folks! HA.

Wednesday is Outlaw King day, so that means a certain actor’s penis. Yes, I will be watching. Duh. The movie is apparently violent but we shall see how that goes. I just want to see him, beard and all, LOL.

No movie this week as there’s nothing really out we want to see. I did finally see Halloween. I liked it. There were some head scratching moments, I will not deny. But for the most part, it was decent. Not It decent, but decent. Speaking of King, I also saw they are remaking Pet Semetary. I swear they can’t come up with anything new to make.

As I write this, my lower back is killing me. It’s hell getting old, you know?

 

 

Thursday, November 01, Ramblings

First up, I have posted my Old Married Spirk story, A Beginning. I know today was the first day for posting, but I had it done, and decided why wait? I don’t mind being first. It is what it is. I hope you like it. The Original Series is not something I write a lot of.

This week I also posted a Halloween story and the next chapter of The Mysterious One, as well as My Devotion. That’s definitely it for the week.

I am returning to working on my Christmas story which is up over 8,000 words already. Once that is done, I will need to get more work done on my T’hy’la Bang story coming in January, as well as everything else I need to do!

I hope to have a pretty quiet weekend ahead of me. Might do some cleaning. We are hosting Thanksgiving this year and the place has a lot that needs to be done before it is clean enough for company. Fortunately I have taken the entire week of Thanksgiving off. I think I have a wine party the weekend before that but that’ll be fine.

We got exactly one child last night, our next door neighbor. Townhome and condo complexes really are ridiculous.

I’ve already voted because I vote by mail though the election is this coming Tuesday. We also change to standard time this weekend and I say, bleh. I hate it dark by 5:00. HATE IT.

Autumn

I didn’t get to see Halloween today. I got a new laptop and Fedex wouldn’t deliver it without a signature so I ended up staying home. But M went to work. The two main freeways near us conspired so that there was no way for us to make a 5 O’Clock movie. He called me at 5:00 still in the city we both work from, some 30 miles away from home. Ah. well. I will try again next week!

I am in a serious funk. I did write a little more on my OMS story today but nothing else and no matter what I looked at I just felt nothing. I did get Where Do People Like us Float updated so you can expect that on Thursday morning. But otherwise…nothing. I feel bad, but not bad enough to force it I guess.

Friday and Saturday are filled up with that friend we are helping, so I am greatly looking forward to Sunday when I can finally relax.

We just had to pay a whopping property tax bill and everything is so damn expensive. Plus I am so sick of politics and our president and so many other things. It’s just so fucking depressing.

So anyway, please forgive me for not updating anything. I’ll keep trying.

Ramblings of the Week, October 22, 2018

peanutsH

So, anyway, as you no doubt know by now, I considered deleting The Sight as I have lost my inspiration for it. I was going to just delete it without word but at the last minute decided to ask about it. I was kind of surprised I had a more positive reaction to the story and more people wanting me to keep it to get to again some day then I had anticipated. So, for now, it stays.

I was able to get the update for Nine Lives done. Next I need to write the last chapter for my Professor Spock conclusion so that I can have it done in plenty of time to post it on Halloween. That’s what I intend to do next.

I think after that I will be updating My Devotion but not sure when I will get to it. This is a pretty busy week. Tomorrow we are seeing the new Halloween (got my tickets already). Thursday is our WW and Saturday we are helping a friend with her festival appearance in Ventura. That’s pretty much an all day thing as it goes until 5. Our friend is going to a Halloween party after that but we are going to dinner after ourselves.

I also need to finish my OMS story for November. I have quite a bit done on it now and I can post it any time in November. I also need to finish the Christmas story. And as I indicated in comments, I have signed up for the T’hy’la Bang which posts in January. I think I have an idea but it would involve a lot of sex so we shall see.

I think that’s it for this week.

 

Ramblings of the Tired One, 10/18/2018

You may have noticed that I don’t have a new chapter up of Where Do People Like Us Float. I meant to. I even started the new re-written chapter but I never quite got it finished and I just didn’t have the energy to finish it up last night, so I do apologize. When I do get it done, I will go ahead and post it.

I did update The Mysterious One. Next up should be The Sight and Nine Lives. Whenever I get them done.

I watched Young Frankenstein last night instead of writing. I plan to take it very very easy this weekend. I do have some shopping to do but for the most part I am going to do my best to be a shut-in. I’m a little burned out and a little depressed. It’ll pass.

Supposed to be hot this weekend. Sigh.

Mid-Week Rambles, October 17, 2018

Yesterday I updated Professor Spock: An Autumn in Harmony. Only one chapter left and that will be uploaded on Halloween.

Monday I updated The Experiment.

Went to see the Neil Armstrong movie, First Man, last night. It was good but long. Kind of exhausted.

I might work on The Mysterious One next we will see.

Nothing else to report! See you around.
