I admit that it's been a relief to not get on my computer. Heavens to Betsy! It's nice not to be on my computer?! I have been taking care of email and such on my Kindle Fire, and I happen to be on my husband's computer since he isn't home. But, yes, not having my computer available means I take care of things in the simplest way possible. Instead of fancy handouts for classes I teach, handouts become rather simple or non-existent. I use paper and pencils--or gel pens!--for making plans, writing notes, and putting new story ideas down.
Until today, my energy level has been too low to actually do anything or think much at all. I still feel a little weak and I know I have to take it easy but I'm so excited for tomorrow. I'm supposed to get my computer back soon and I want to write and edit! I also need to get back to my other jobs. Mostly, my two weeks at home have been to lay on the couch and watch Monk and movies. And READ! I've been through several books already. Just in case you find yourself in the mood for reading something you may not have tried already:
The Ginger Gold mystery series, by Lee Strauss. I just finished book 5, Murder at the Mortuary. I just eat up these books set in the 20's whose main character is Ginger Gold, a fashionista who just recently returned to her native England from Boston. She likes to drive fast and she carries a gun. Her exact duties during the war are still a bit of a mystery too.
The Lying Planet; and Bottled are by Carol Riggs. I just finished both of these stories. Bottled is about a girl who was imprisoned in a bottle as a genie and seeks to get out! The Lying Planet is an intense sci-fi about a group of teens who discover a dark truth their parents are hiding.
I'm in the middle of The Executioner's Daughter, by Jane Hardstaff, about a girl named Moss who holds the basket into which her father throws the severed heads of those just executed. She feels as much as a prisoner of the Tower of London as those condemned to die.
I'm also in the middle of Ghost Hand, by Ripley Patton. I love it that the ghost hand is a medical condition called PSS - Psyche Sans Soma
Well, I think I just used up most of my energy for today. Back to reading.
