Honie’s Log – Star Date 33013.89
The conclusion of Beyond Belief is causing a disruption among my staff. (the voices in my head) It seems the mandatory overtime has driven them to distraction and the more undisciplined ones have begun suggesting random ideas for future writing projects.Blood & Guts On Baltic Avenue The story of family game night gone terribly wrong. Desperately Seeking Sunglasses …and other shit I can’t find Contemplating Quantum Physics: A Ridiculous Stall Tactic
To complicate matters, the extended daylight due to the beginning of daylight savings time has made outside activities harder to resist. Of course, the argument could be made that I am simply using that as an excuse. I must fortify my defenses against further interruption and complete my mission. Oh, but first… Happy Springtime!

Beautiful pics! Spring is my favorite time of year. So many colors and sweet smelling flowers!
Springtime does have a wonderfully sweet fragrance, Holly. My favorite season though, is fall. Especially after a brutal Texas summer. I’ve always loved October with still warm, sunny days and the cool, crisp nights. Apple cider, hay rides, pumpkins! Fall colors. Spectacular!
I like fall, too. As Calvin and Hobbes said, fall leaves are like nature’s fireworks. But I still like spring just a teensy bit better just because spring is like a rebirth. A promise of a new beginning. Maybe I’m a romantic at heart after all…. 🙂
I can’t argue with that. Spring energizes me in a way I can’t explain. Everything seems possible in the spring.
Beautiful nature! Thanks Sheri.
Your ideas for future writing projects are absolutely intriguing and flat-out hilarious! But honestly, I really would read “Blood and Guts on Baltic Avenue”. Just because it’s that good.
Oh the fights we had as kids over a simple board game! Monopoly seemed to bring out the very worst in my brother and me. We always started out having fun, but soon he’d advance to GO and collect more than $200, I should’ve never agreed to let him be the banker. Once the get out of jail free cards started appearing from under the table, all hell would break loose. Hotels became projectiles. I was not pretty.
Oooh. You know how they’re trying to make board games into movies? (ie: Battleship) What you just described there would make a pretty damn amazing one. Or at least a short! Where’s a creative director when you need one?
Monopoly is one of THE most boring games we ever tried to play. Sure, it starts out exciting, everybody chooses their token and gets all that money, but then about the third time you pass go and you realize two hundred dollars doesn’t buy very much, that’s when it hits you. Cheat or get cheated, yeah, that sounds like movie material. Could be set in Vegas or D.C.~ Funny Hala J.!!
Those pictures, oh my. Perhaps just give your staff a small spring break and demand their complete attention thereafter.
My staff needs a jump start, that’s for sure. Glad you like the pics.
cannot wait until it looks like that around here
do you have a public garden nearby?
Glorious photos. Just love that… red maple? We’re heading into Autumn here but I’m facing the same temptations as you are. I love working out in the garden when its cool enough to make raising a sweat pleasant. Ah well. Maybe I can ration the outdoors… for health reasons of course. 😉
Yes, Japanese maples are just the right pop against the many shades of green. Autumn is my favorite time of the year. I love spring, but nothing beats fall for me.
We have pockets of loveliness, mostly in the big cities, but the native Australian bush doesn’t really come alive until winter when all the wattles flower. Winter is when we get most of our rain and I guess the plants evolved to make use of it.
The wattles burst into many shades of yellow which does brighten up an otherwise wet, grey time of year.
We’re out and about enjoying nice weather today too. It’s about time! Lovely pics!
You and your staff deserve a break after the work you put in this week. Can’t wait to read all about it. 😀
My ‘staff.’ I like that.
I would read that sunglasses book – seriously!
I could seriously write it…I am constantly looking for my glasses, keys, phone, a pen, socks. GAAAHHH!
Me too – I almost always find them on my head or in my hands, but I never think to look there. I also spend a large chunk of my life looking for my lens cap.
There’d be no point in me buying that book. I’d never be able to find it when I finally got around to reading it. Maybe add an RFID finder tag in the binding…
funny, RFID bookmarks…there’s an idea.
Staff is so difficult sometimes.Once again the photos are glorious.
All three of those titles sound hilarious…maybe a TV series in there. Giggles
I’ve been thinking of putting a couple of them on notice, but then, I don’t want to be the cause of them being a drain on society…so I let them stay.
Eggsactly, one must be kind.
First things first … Then the writing state of mind appears
Exactly! Feed the soul, the rest will take care of itself.
Great post. I think that your staff is having online meetings with mine…
We may need to limit their computer access! HA!
At the very least we could restrict them to dial-up connections!
That’ll teach ’em!
…and to you!
