Good morning! Trying to get a chapter in before the family wakes up. We're helping our nephew move today, so I won't get another chance to write. Must type fast!  :giddyup

Good morning, everyone! Sunny today and we finally have our screened porch back (meaning, I swept it, vacuumed it, and washed it down yesterday and brought up some of the furniture from the basement). This is a lot later than usual because our cold spring delayed the lilacs and there's no point in cleaning the porch until they're finished blooming because otherwise there's a layer of yellow pollen on everything, every day.

Pollen!  Uffda!  Off to see the Adorables for a few days, so I'll miss our :coffee3 together, everyone, but keep writing!

Good morning! Squeezed in almost 3 hours of work yesterday, first block of time I've had in several days. I'm sure having a convenient place to hide (the porch) helped. Alas, if I'm to work on the porch today I'll have to wear a parka; a cool front came through in late afternoon and we had a 30ยบ temperature drop.

Can I technically be included in this group considering I arise hours before the rest of you? It's almost 3.30 here. And a nice sunny day for a change.
Having a late lunch, game of fetch with the alien feline and a little paper work if he lets me get on with it. Spock and pens don't get on very well, but I shall try.

Fiona, we're posting in our own real time zones, so YES! So are those jam tarts you mad with little kitty pawprints, or biscuits (= cookies in the USA) you've dipped in white chocolate and then decorated in dark?

Though I've been rising as early as usual, my writing days have been starting around 8 a.m.l lately--not exactly what I call early, but at least I'm writing.  :typing

Hi, and Happy Summer everyone!  I haven't slept all night so I been up and to Walgreens already.  I am not sure why people like getting up this early.  But then we all must do our own thing.   :exactly:

Hoping to get a little rest in an hour or two and then must clean house for a guest.

the cat and dog are useless in this department, although lack of sleep may have produced an entire book, whether or not I can do anything with it or not is another thing.   :muahaha:

It's totally not early but I'm here. Hi, everybody! Liz, sorry you couldn't sleep. I hope at least the writing will be profitable.

And Happy Summer to everyone from me, too! :surfing:

Waving back at Anne! I did sleep about two hours.  I should be working, but the computer is more fun. 

Hopefully next time I will be checking in officially as a real night owl.
