Ooof. So, yesterday I got up at 7 in the goddamn morning because that's when I woke up, I don't even. Fed the cats, did the pokemon thing and fed all the cats inside and out. Went out back and weeded up the raised beds by the porch, cleared off a corner of the porch and trimmed all the dead off the lavender. Time will tell if I trimmed it too much. Cleared the last of the raised beds. Washed the litter pans, pitched a lot of random detritus into the trash, planted some herbs, wrapped some other seed in damp paper towels and stuck them in the freezer for scarification. Stratification? I can't damn well tell which. Soaking and freezing! Put away the lawnmower. Burned some documents (mostly junk mail involving credit card offers). Made cookie dough. Made shepherd's pie because I was craving garlic mashed potatoes and that's what it ended up being. Did some handwashing. I have no idea what on earth got into me but holydamn I was an industrious hobbit.

It also seems to still be going although we'll see how long that holds because today I got up, showered, did a full 30 minutes of an exercise routine, put away some clean laundry, swept a bit and put my vanity back now that I've determined where the new lamp is going to go, got downstairs and got all the cats fed, got the plants watered, got my languages studied, and got my face on and everything on time to get to work and this is without even touching on whatever happens when I get home. Um. Just, um.

Basically I seem to have turned into Super Courtesan. I have no idea why this happened or how long it's going to last or what. But it did remind me to take account that I need 7 hours of sleep a night these days. I don't know if that's body changes or ambient malaise from the jackass squating in the White House or a permanent change because of the latter or.... I don't know. But something to keep in mind if I want to keep being Super Courtesan.

I did manage to get some edits done! I'm not sure if I should keep, for Camp Nanowrimo, writing the intermediate bit or skip to the part where it's just editing the words in play. Maybe a little bit of both until I fill in the intermediate part? Though at least that's mostly done anyway so in a day or two it may be a moot point.

Aaand Hm. I need to finish up the last of the stories to toss to the Editrix for the White Lightning anthology. I need to finish actually writing down all the notes and ideas I have swirling in my head for Starlight and get back to that. And then ... no, I think that's pretty much it, then it's back to simple edits and drafting and my project list is pretty well done. Which is good if I'm going to keep turning into a frenzied hobbit.
