Today was quiet, with a barbecue in the backyard and the smell of delicious food sizzling on the grill, and all kinds of wonderful yummies on the picnic table. The idea of it helped inspired me with my latest S/B fic, which I'm writing now. :)
The weather here has been marvelous, around 65-70 degrees. A welcome change from last week's two-day heat wave of 90 degrees with high humidity. I hate humidity, so I'm happy with the cooler weather. It feels like fall, my favorite time of year.
I've been a little lazy lately, too. :) Not as far as chores are concerned, but writing-wise. It's not due to sloth but has more to do with my writing hand knotting up because I'd written/typed too much the previous days! :)
Also, I am pretty much caught up with my stories to archive at the Superman/Batman Archive, just a few short ones to upload, and Rainbow's Freedom, which is making me groan at the thought of archiving 17 chapters! :) So I'll probably just do a few chapters at a time when I finally get around to it.
The Muses finally spoke to me about continuing my Clark/Dick story, Bright Laughter II: Dancing In The Clouds, so that was pleasing to get something done that had been languishing for awhile. I tried for a poetic style in this one. No dialogue, for one thing. Just Clark, Dick, and flying. :)
The day is closing out with soft rains, which I love to listen to.
And for a sorta-patriotic fic, I'm going to pop over to marvel_slash and start reading a new Captain America/Iron Man fic! :)
So I hope everyone who celebrates Independence Day had a good day, and let's hope the country is better off by next year, though we're still stuck with the Shrub until 2009 (*shudders*).
My dad was a Korean War veteran, so I am also hoping that things will get better for those serving in the military in Afghanistan and Iraq, which means coming home healthy and whole!
Happy Fourth to everyone who celebrates it!
