Scratching A Writing Itch From Time To Time

Winter Wonderland

Finally after 10 inches of snow followed by subzero temperatures, we here in Indiana have received a break.

It is a balmy 22 degrees as I write this.

We suffered no power outages.  No stranded or stuck cars. No frostbite.

How did we pass the time you ask?

Since we had some advance warning, there were several options available.

Of course, we loaded up on food.

The other trip we made was to the home improvement store.

What better time to work on projects?  You can’t go out.

We chose to replace two toilets and repaint the bathrooms while we were at it.

We also binge-watched The Good Wife.  I’m not sure if I like the description binge-watched, but that is what we did.

The people who are in charge of casting for that show are incredible.  Also the writing staff is amazing. When you watch them back-to-back you get a real feel for how the stories flow.

This is a short post.  Number 99 in the series. The next one will be something I thought up while white-knuckling my way around Indy this morning on the icy,snowy roads.

Oh, the suspense. I hope it works out.

Until then…..

  1. Got all the way up to 19 here today! Look out! Heat wave!

    I’m so excited you’re loving “The Good Wife.” Absolutely one of the best shows on television. They’re all such real characters, aren’t they? I love that the writers aren’t afraid to have them do bad things. Sometimes on tv shows, the characters are so one-dimensional – no one would act that way. You have trouble connecting. I love that these characters are like people you’d actually meet in real life, and I feel like I know all of them. I’m a little behind – probably 4 or 5 episodes (I always am) but am always so happy to watch a new episode!

    • We don’t agree on a lot of tv here. Usually, HGTV is our safe harbor. So it has been nice to see a show that isn’t a procedural like CSI or even Law And Order. Although my son says people my age are required to watch Law And Order.
