tea today: Stash holiday chai, which has almost as much nutmeg as Woodchuck Fall Cider.
teacup today: white roses, the final cup from ctwriter's awesome teacup gift bag. I am looking forward to the new house, which has an actual built-in glass-front butler's cabinet in which one could, for example, store and display teacups!
dog today: badly in need of a grooming intervention
Today is a Rest Day, at least exercise-wise. There need to be some yoga later, but no running this morning. Running tomorrow, and possibly climbing or kayaking, though the rivers are all still pretty high and full of debris. There was just a "kayak at your own risk" warning on the radio re: The Mighty Connecticut. Which is, in all honesty, mighty enough: a pretty goddamned big and tricky river, with a nasty undertow. As I understand it, it's one of those deep U-shaped channels that result in sneaky currents detrimental to swimmers.
Only a thousand words on Shattered Pillars yesterday, because I got distracted by a bunch of distracting things--all of them quite positive. I've revised and expanded the two existing chapters, though, and started chapter three, though, and the POV that's new to this book. So that's kind of awesome.
And now I have to go to work, the first of which work is writing the cover copy for Book of Iron.
