I watch the ripples change their size
But never leave the stream
Of warm impermanence
And so the days float through my eyes
But still the days seem the same
And these children that you spit on
As they try to change their worlds
Are immune to your consultations
They're quite aware of what they're goin' through

Bright Future in Sales

So, today was strangely non busy. This week saw only 6.5 hours of overtime, having less than an extra day of OT a week feels weird. It was also a highly productive week, we didn't break a record for outputing plates, but we came close. The big difference, I think, was in the slowness of those secondary jobs I do.

This weekend is the first that nothing is really planned. I hope to catch up on a lot of work and really start critiquing a friend's book. This is the only open weekend from now until Thanksgiving, the next two seeing major travel time to get where I am going. I am very excited about what's coming (writers retreat, World Fantasy, then writers group). I'm looking forward to it all. In there I also really want to get a new tankless waterheater in by Xmas. I'm feeling the time crunch.

The leafs are hitting peak. It was a fairly quick turn. Last weekend they weren't near. I expect by next weekend they'll be gone. My own leaves are mostly just going brown and dropping. The weather is turning coolish again. Not sure how long that will last.

With the light schedule I finally was able to catch up with the bloggeroll. Now I'm only a few posts behind. Blog posts art like Doritos, everybody just keeps making more. Hope you have a good weekend.

Oh, forgot to pose this question, if Turkey invades Iraq to attack PKK/Terrorist strongholds, does that make them a part of the Coalition of the Willing?

I don't think it could be said that I did anything useful this weekend at all. You?

Greeny, I tried getting caught up with all the chores. I cut shelves, cleaned, reorganized, critiqued, read, keyed in a few thousand words, and did relationship stuff, a light weekend.

Well, ok, I lied. I scrubbed a toilet and took Evil Genius shopping for school clothes. Talked with Better Half about some important things and went on a date. Walked two miles. Sorted through the boys' winter clothes and culled what won't fit. Decorated for Halloween. ;)

Greeny, yeah, you can gauge how old you are by how you define a relaxed weekend. BTW, I love th ephoto of the stary night window.
