Ramblings from the Gryphon Rose

Yet again . . .

. . . I go quiet. At least for a little bit. But I am keeping the blog for now.

I’ve been busy, but nothing out of the ordinary.

We went to visit the wife’s grandmother weekend before last, out in southern NJ (near Trenton) and had a very nice time. The kids enjoyed themselves, the toddler especially—we have several very sweet photos of her hugging her great-grandma, who was absolutely thrilled.

Went to Dave & Buster’s off Times Square for a friend’s birthday. It was amusing. Going to see Pirates 2 tomorrow night with some friends, finally. I’m looking forward to it—and to a distant future when the wife and I can actually do such things together again.

I’ve been writing, of course, and the novel is coming along, though I’ve had to put it down once or twice for other things. I just finished edits on my second Warhammer novel, for one—it’s a much stronger book now and I’m well pleased with it. I’ve got another short piece to finish up tonight and tomorrow and then it’s back to the novel again. After that I’ve got another project to work on, and two more I need to start outlining.

Otherwise it’s business as usual. Work’s been busy lately, which is good and bad, and I’ve had my hands full. The kids are good, and fully recovered from the bugs they had a week or two ago. The cat was ill but seems to be doing better now. The wife and I are still a little sleep-deprived but not too bad, and she’s recovered from the serious deprivation of the weekend.

My dad’s coming up to visit next week, and my youngest sister the following weekend. Then we’ve got a two-week gap before my best friend visits—alas, for only a day or two!—followed rapidly by another of our good friends. August will be filled with visitors!

I haven’t done any house stuff in a while, in part because it’s been so beastly hot. I still need to paint the new radiator cover and the chair railing and there are a few other things I want to get done but none of them are urgent.

We’ve been catching up on Dr. Who finally, and have only the last two eps of second season left. We will be sad when they’re done. It’s the only thing we’re watching right now, and that’s up on the computer—if not for the toddler watching DVDs downstairs from time to time the TV would crumble from disuse.

Hm. Not a lot else, really. But that’ll do for now. :)
