Discovery Day, Sweetpea!

Today was Discovery Day. I was very happy to discover that I met my minimum word count two days in a row. Doing so got less painful once I discovered that I’d started the book in the wrong place — too far in, as a matter of fact. Today I wrote a new chapter 1 and discovered that the story starts with a party and the hero arriving with his good friend. I have 6,183 words so far.

We went to my nephew’s birthday party today where I discovered that my sister-in-law has a long-time family friend who is writing a romance! I’m taking her to my local chapter meeting next Saturday and seeing if she can’t get signed up for Nationals, too. What a nice discovery!

Pink Sweetpea
As for sweetpeas, I went down and cut sweetpeas today, which has the happy effect of bringing on even more sweetpeas and now the kitchen has a vase full of sweetpeas and when you walk in, there’s just an incredible scent. I love sweetpeas, and here’s two pictures of some I took this afternoon.

    See? I can’t put any flowers anywhere in my flat because my cats would nibble on them and thereby possibly poison themselves. The furry babies will even attack a cactus. Duh.

    I have two cats, one of whom is the Devil Cat who lives to knock things down. (Bonus points if they go ::boom:: or shatter upon landing). In my room, I use a very heavy vase — too heavy to be knocked over. Else where in the house, I’ve been OK. While there are some lovely flowers that are not good for cats, I don’t think sweetpeas or roses, for that matter, are harmful. One taste and they know they weren’t cat treats.

    One hopes.
