Writing Circle

It's almost 9:30 p.m. -- and our monthly Writing Circle meeting is over. Participants included sister Sue suzy_qp, Jodi, Dick, Marilyn mistressmarilyn and me. We had a great time!

We did an interesting and fun exercise (Marilyn runs the group so well -- and always has things for us to talk about and do) where we had a choice of three topics and then we just wrote off the cuff. Everybody did such amazing writing! It's hard to believe the quality of the work just sitting and writing that way.

We had pizza and salad, with cottage cheese and some veggies (carrots, pea pods and black olives), but we FORGOT the dessert we'd bought -- orange-y/white-y ice cream cups! Sue called on her cell phone on her way home to tell me we hadn't remembered to serve the ice cream (darn)!

Marilyn and I did run to the store to get salad and milk (and a couple other things, including the ice cream) -- and while at Freddies we got Starbucks (there's a Starbucks in all Fred Meyer stores). I had a Tazo® Black Shaken Iced Tea Lemonade, which was DELICIOUS! (Right now I'm having a Crystal Light Iced Tea -- with Lemon, as you can't just get black tea with no sweetness. It's certainly not as good as Starbucks, but it's not bad...)

Marilyn and I stayed really late last night -- and worked hard today -- so we were both yawning prior to the Starbucks. I was thankful for the pick-me-up that kept me going strong into the evening.

It's back to work tomorrow, so hopefully we won't stay up too late playing games and watching TV tonight... Of course, I wouldn't count on that!!! (heh)

Vacation was WONDERFUL! And summer is looming large in front of us!

Tomorrow night is the midnight movie of the new Harry Potter movie -- and we can't wait! We love midnight movies and Harry Potter. It should be fun!

It's certainly nice to have a (partly) clean house. I can't wait to tackle more rooms soon.
