Sigh. Not much progress in my writing this week. However, I did get to hike up to the Valley of the Four Winds with my two daughters and do some sketching. Also, spent Canada Day doing face-painting for a steam excursion group–took my three daughters and my grandson, which was a hoot. Also spent about 6 hours today trying to repair a riding mower–well, my husband is the small-engines guy, I mostly just handed him tools. Darn thing still doesn’t work (I mean the mower), but had a lovely day learning about small engines and enjoying the sunshine. No writing, though. Tomorrow!
