Week of 27 November – 4 December
Things are moving along on Where Now the Rider. I’m in the 90s in word count. I’m at the cleaning up and setting up the conclusion stage. Really close.
This time of year is always interesting. I’m stressing about getting the next book done, but this is also my normal time to upgrade and clean my house. Some new landscaping, two toilets replaced, and a lot of emptying of closets.
Isn’t it odd how much decluttering makes us happier?
Anyway, I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and things are going well towards Christmas.
Quote of the Week
This day, 30 November, in 1900, one of my favorite quote machines, Oscar Wilde, passed away.
When I bought this house, I walked into the master bedroom and said to myself, “That’s the worst wallpaper I’ve seen.” Then I went into the mother-in-law suite which had wallpaper consisting of button images in a variety of patterns. I said to myself, “No, no that’s not the worst wallpaper I’ve ever seen.” If the room was darker, the buttons followed you across the room like eyes in a Scooby Doo cartoon.
So, today’s quote is Oscar Wilde’s comment about the wallpaper in his room just before he died.
“My wallpaper and I are fighting a duel to the death. One or other of us has got to go.”
– Oscar Wilde
