Song mood: All These Things I’ve Done by the Killers.
For the last couple of days I have been writing August poems. So far, I have twenty poems written. Tonight, I think I will just pick the art for the rest of the days and finish writing the poems tomorrow. I will finish before August.
It’s been too hot to walk outside, so I have been walking at malls to get my steps in.
So, the Canadian border will open on 9 August. I’m thinking of driving to Winnipeg on the 9th. I can find a cheap hotel and spend a couple of days in Winnipeg. It would be another trip by myself, which doesn’t thrill me. And at the same time, I don’t know how long the border will be open for because of the Delta Variant. The other upside to going to Canada, I could probably buy a Cuban cigar. Downside, extra driving time.
My mum sprained her knee. When my sister moved to Alaska, I didn’t like the idea of my mum living by herself in Fargo. After her doctor’s appointment, she could probably get home health care. I will visit her on my way to Winnipeg. And then again for her birthday a month later.
Currently I’m listening to Alice by Christina Henry. So far, I’m liking it. I haven’t been scared of the Jabberwocky in a long time. Okay, I don’t know if I have ever been scared of the Jabberwocky at all, but the novel is fun.
In the week that I have off for my birthday, I’ll do traveling. But I’m hoping to get some writing done. I’ll read my birthday book. This year’s birthday book is The Album of Dr. Moreau by Daryl Gregory. It’s about a boyband made of the creatures from The Island of Dr. Moreau who go on killing sprees while they are on tour.
Then there is Free Comic Book Day on 14 August. Lots to look forward for.
