It's been a while since I've done a "Things I Heart Right Now" list. And it's Friday. These two facts aren't related, but I thought, Hey! Why not kick off the weekend with some hearting?
If Wes Anderson sat down and decided to write a picture book (Ooh! Wouldn't that be great?), it would be this. Where else will my child learn the words despondent and mezzo-soprano? The Pea's been walking around the last few days quoting part of it. But adding his own little spin to it: "Everyone, everyone, everyone, everyone goes to the froggy potty." Nope, that's just you, kiddo.
Drafting. I've decided I'm not even going to call it "writing a story" because my first draft will be crap of craptastical proportions. It will be said crap whether I slave over it for months upon months upon months or bang it out as fast as I can. Fast as I can, it is. I don't want to talk about how many manuscripts it's taken me to figure this out.I'm attempting to eliminate wheat, dairy, and sugar from my diet. Do you know what's in every single thing I enjoy eating? Wheat, dairy, and sugar. My sole treat are these Applesauce Oat Bran Muffins that I've been making (and eating) by the boatload. And, technically, I haven't eliminated the sugar out of them. Also. I sneak white chocolate chips into the batter. Oops. Fell in.
