Today is a very special day, as it is Number Three Nephew's 12th birthday. Twelfth! How on toast did that happen? I must not have been paying attention because I'm pretty sure he was only five yesterday. I bought him a decorative box from the dollar store (one a boy wouldn't feel awkward with) and filled it with about seven different kinds of candy from the Bulk Barn. He is one happy camper.
It has also been a three-h-day - hazy, hot, and humid. Coming down off the escarpment on the way home, I couldn't tell there was a lake out there at all, the sky was so very hazy.
So, it's been a full day. I've just now managed to write a little, advancing the next chapter forward a smidge. Perhaps 250 words. While writing this evening, I was able to clarify some details in my mind about where Gamel came from and why he is where he is when we first meet him. It is very interesting - and exciting - to me to see this process unfold.
Day five: check.
