I had a bunch of editing and writing to do today, but I did almost none of it. Instead, I spent most of the morning watching season 10 of Vera.
Then I went to my book signing. That makes it sound grand, but really it was just me signing books in front of a friend's house (masked, from 6' away). They were all copies that she'd purchased for holiday presents. I don't know how Real Authors™make small talk with people while they're signing books. Maybe I'll learn that when I level up. Also, the standard Sharpie has a little too much bleed-through.
The Great Outdoors
After that I took the dogs for a walk in the UC Davis arboretum. We didn't go far -- the little dog has reached the stage where she can't keep up with a regular walking pace for long -- but there was much sniffing to be done. I also attempted to take pictures of the dogs in a setting other than my office. I'm a terrible photographer, and the dogs' inability to stay doesn't help things. But at least they aren't pictures of the big dog lying down with his legs all wonky.
|Look, I almost got both dogs in the picture!|
We may have to go back again soon so I can try again.
- The big dog still hasn't figured out how to make it through the door blanket to come into the office, so I have to hold it open for him.
- We managed to walk past three (3) dogs at one time during out walk today, and both my dogs were reasonably well behaved, so I'm counting that as a win.
- I still have the theme music for Vera stuck in my head. Everything has a foreboding feeling to it.
