one of those days,

Like, when isn't it? One of those days. And it has already begun. It's Friday, Matt's day, plus plus plus.

Anon, anon.

Later:  How can anyone sign up with a "like" when I haven't said anything yet? Well,first, John Denver:  "Sunshine almost always makes me happy/ sunshine almost always makes me high."  The sun is shining; it's a beautiful, crisp, fall day and we live in hope...that the JAYS WILL WIN THE GAME TONIGHT.  I hope so.

I'm celebrating birthdays this weekend, beginning today with my friend and mentor who divides his time between here and Cleveland.  He's in Cleveland today; I'll invite him for dinner next week. Tomorrow I will celebrate with a friend by taking her to a movie - a rare treat for both of  us,and a birthday treat for her. Sunday I will serve brunch to another birthday girl and her husband and a mutual friend.  I'll do a frittata; I'm good at frittatas. Sunday evening Matt will come for Sunday dinner; he has chosen chicken. God knows what the Jays will be doing by Sunday and He hasn't told me yet.  I just have to wait and see.

In the meantime, I am living a double life.  My characters in my screenplay are coming to life inside my head and I begin to hear their voices, saying things that only they -- each one -- can say.  And I am seeing scenes that didn't exist before. It's great when I get to this stage because even when I'm not writing, I'm writing.  If all goes well, maybe by next week I can put something into the hard drive....I hope.

I'm hoping for the Blue Jays right now.  Bless us all.  I hope.
