Well, this certainly wasn’t what I expected. My night ended up being a major catastrophe! My husband had asked if I would make him some brownies, and thinking this might put a spark back into our marriage, I decided to oblige. But what what was suppose to be a perfect dinner, with that special dessert, turned out to be a major disaster.
First off, he hated the Chile Verde I made, although he was okay with the cheese and onion corn muffins.
Then, the brownies… Let’s just say, the oven decided to overheat and go up in flames! I had to finish the brownies in the microwave oven, which led them to be way to moist and greasy. Nasty!
So while the house survived my oven’s bad timing, I’m very sure the neighbors were panicking as the smoke seeped out the doors and windows. Thankfully this house came equipped with a mini fire extinguisher, otherwise I might have had to call our local guys from the fire department out. Hmmm. I wonder if I could have requested them to strike a pose without their gear and show the husband the photos. After all, it would be for a good cause! Wonder if he would notice me then! HA!
So in closing, I leave you with my attempted look for the day.
P.S. I did get to the library! Lots to tell soon!
P.P.S I had to go outside to write this because of the mad house inside, and the bugs are biting. At least someone thinks I’m sweet!
I’m so happy the weekend is finally here! Although it’s raining, I still couldn’t be happier that today and tomorrow are my days to do things for myself. This is the time I can devote to working on projects that are truly special to me, like my paranormal romance Shift River and the novels I write. During the week, I’m so bogged down by work and my family that the opportunity to do real creative writing never presents itself. I get real joy from writing creatively and it’s a stress reliever too.
I’m feeling a strong pull toward my new paranormal romance and Shifter series, Shift River. This series can only be found here on LoveMe.eu and I’m ecstatic that I found the perfect place to showcase this story that’s in my heart. During the week, I function as a copywriter, self-editor and PR girl, but on the weekends I’m someone else entirely. In fact, I’m more than one person as Shift River is written in the third person and I plan to lead the many different characters of the series in a number of directions. This series is just getting started for me.
Gabriel, the two kids and his wife Sarah had come back after midnight because the plane they arrived on only landed at around 10.30pm. Lucy greeted them all but as the girls were tired, everyone went to bed very soon after the bags had been taken out of the car. It was a strange feeling for Lucy to have three more people in the house again. She was worried about not being able to cope with it even though she had always liked the two girls very much. However, the last time she had seen them had been a few years ago.
The next morning, Lucy was the first one to be up, so she decided to do some work on the computer until Gabriel and the others would get up. She was not sure about how the day would go and what was planned or not planned for it. As it turned out, Sarah and the kids had some things to do and went out of the house for a few hours. Gabriel did not feel too well and spend a lot of time in bed. Lucy felt a little relieved because she did not have to deal with too many people that day – but also a little sad because she had no time with Gabriel.
Lucy was startled – how would Gabriel be able to tell what was going on in her head? Did something in her eyes give her feelings away?
Lucy’s feelings seemed like a powerful river. Once the first drop from a river’s source starts to move, the flow of the river is usually unstoppable. The first drop will be joined by many others from many different sources. The river will become bigger and stronger as long as it is fed with water. It will make its way to the ocean and overcome all obstacles. Sometimes overcoming the obstacles will be harder – but in the end, the river will always win and find its way.
In this case, Lucy was not sure whether she would be able to fight against the strength of the river for much longer. She was fighting against her emotions and was not sure about who would win this war. She hated to think that she wouldn’t be able to be in control of her own heart and mind. There would be no point in letting those feelings take control – after all, her feelings would surely be one-sided and Gabriel was a married man. So what would she do if he really knew what she was thinking and feeling?
Gabriel said: “I’m sure you think that it would be nice to meet a guy just like that but instead you’re here with me.” Lucy had not really followed the movie because she was not very interested in it. She had to admit that the main actor was quite good looking but she said: “He doesn’t have a good character like you do.” Gabriel slightly raised an eyebrow: “So you think I’ve got a good character?
That’s good to know.” Lucy replied: “But you were wrong about what I was thinking about.” Gabriel turned to her a bit more: “Well, you surely are not very interested in the movie anyway – it’s a little boring, isn’t it? Would you rather talk to me about something?”
She thought about dying her hair. It was dark brown, and cut short at the back and sides with a long sweeping fringe. Lara toyed with it. She was restless, and her days felt stagnant. She wondered if she would be more employable as a blonde. She was daydreaming rainbows of hair colours when her phone rang, and a secretary informed she had been selected for a second interview round. Lara punched the air with joy. It wasn’t the entry-level clerical job that made her grin to herself though; it was the image of the tall, sexy ticket inspector from the station near the office.
She walked over to the ticket machine queue and pulled her wallet from her handbag, and fingered through her change. Then a thought hit her with a jolt of nerves, ‘don’t buy a ticket’. It made her palms sweat a little. She thought about the ticket inspector taking her by the arm and leading her aside to pay the fine. It was so irrational that it made her chew her lip, but Lara couldn’t stop herself from thinking it would be worth it.
By the time she reached her station she was sure she had sweated through her shirt. She saw the inspectors checking tickets, targeting the morning commuter crowds. Her feet felt awkward as they carried her forward. Then she spotted her, and Lara’s nerves turned to giddiness. The inspector looked as imperious and as bored as she had before. She glanced over tickets and nodded people along. Lara headed in her direction, and stuck her hands in her pockets to hide their shaking. As she neared the exit however, the inspector turned to talk to a colleague, and the line went on unchecked. Lara nearly groaned out loud when she realised she would have to walk right by, without saying a word. Read more…
