Sorry for the lack of posting the last few days. June was a rather difficult month–not bad, mostly (except for matters of national import, of which I must honestly admit that our last good month as a nation is in the rear-view mirror), but difficult. June was full of daily-life stuff that occupied a lot of my brain cycles, and as the month drew to a close, that level of activity increased to the point that I just had to shut down my writing brain just to get through.
We’re all caught up now, though! Again, none of this was bad, but it was all at once and it all absorbed a lot of mental energy, and I’m finding that mental energy isn’t as easy to come by as it used to be. I can prop it up for a while by upping my caffeine and sugar intake, but that only works for a little while and I always feel like crap for 36 hours after doing that–and I have every suspicion that the 36-hour recovery for that behavior will become 48 before too long, and then even longer.
Anyway, I’m on a three-day weekend now, getting some R&R in, and there will be more of that in the future. Onward and upward! Zap! Pow!
And now, here’s one of our cats, touching Carla’s butt.
