We’re enjoying lovely weather here in Central Illinois. I almost feel guilty this morning as I read about the people in Florida and Texas who are dealing with the dreadful aftermath of hurricanes. One of the latest stories covers the attempt to fight the mosquitoes in flood-ravaged Texas. Another story said the flood waters also carried raw sewage.
In Florida people apparently are working in sweltering heat while they try to rebuild their lives. My heart goes out to everyone affected by the storms. At least authorities seem to be doing as much as they can. I read that the Air Force is lending a hand with battling the mosquitoes. But it will be a long time, I fear, before many lives will return to normal.
Meanwhile I’m basking in highs in the upper 70s with nighttime temps dropping into the mid 50s. I’ve been taking advantage of the weather by having my breakfast tea on the back patio. I want to enjoy this weather while I can. It won’t be long before winter turns up again. Ugh. I’m so not a winter person.
My writing is proceeding. I put together a publishing schedule last night and realized I want to shift focus for a while. I had been working on a romantic suspense book. But Ginger Black, Melanie Hart’s sidekick, is tramping around in my head and screaming that she wants to tell a story of her own. Goodness, she’s even handed me the title: Ginger’s Revenge. So look out world, here she comes. LOL But of course this will take me a while to write.
