Finally a Day Off - Projects, Projects and Projects

So my DH's surgery went well yesterday, and I thank each and every one of you who reached out to me via post responses and Emails. Your positive thoughts and prayers were gratefully appreciated. I actually will get today as my day off, and I'm very grateful because my head is deep in fiction and I also have an art project due tomorrow which I have barely started. (Speaking of which, I should probably ask for a 24-hour extension because I will actually need that.)





I have been writing for Back 2 Middle Earth month, the overall theme of which has been BINGO. There were many cards that the Tolkien community designed, I designed one and have enjoyed the stories that it has helped to generate. Some people chose a small amount, others in the double digits. I chose eight. The prompts and need to write stories that conformed to and included the prompts were a wonderful mind-stretcher and I am still enjoying it and will through the end of the month. But I finally got the right call for BINGO last night. I'm not the first, by any stretch, but at least I got one - LOL. And with one of my favorite cards - Maglor in History - which has been responsible for some of my best fic this month.



So today I'll work until my manager arrives because he had an errand he had to do on the way in to the shop, and then I can get home and start my laundry - SO NEEDED, I'm almost out of socks! I've still got my cold, but I am getting better, so today will be a day to concentrate on creative things and I can hardly wait! So happy.....OH and Project Runway All Stars Finale is tonight, and the Sweet 16 starts tonight....what a great day today will be :-)
Michael for the win! I've been rooting for him since the first episode.

Great news about your husband. :)
I don't know, Shirebound. I'm in Autin's corner, and my friend and my DH are firmly in Mondo's. I love all three of them, but Austin is so over-the-top that he just appeals to me. Of course, I've been watching Runway for many seasons now :-) All Stars was tough though!

So glad to hear the surgery went well--must be a big relief. :)
It is a terrific relief. One more stressful thing gone, thousands waiting in the wings - LOL. Thanks for all of your positive thoughts :-)

So you also got bingo? We are three then, with Kei. Congrats! =)

I'm glad everything went all right with your husband.
I did, with Maglor in History Card 1 - one of my faves, and I think you also have that card. Congratulations to you also!

Thanks for the kind wishes for my stubborn dwarfie hubby. He's a stubborn one, but he'll do much better for a while now :-)

Oh, Keiless. I have another friend Kye that I was confusing her with. I didn't think my other friend was playing Bingo - LOL.

Which other card had Bingo?

- Erulisse (one L)
Yes, that's what I thought. I'm rather amazed that I actually got Bingo considering I only chose eight cards. But I got lucky :-)

- Erulisse (one L)
Awesome! Some of mine are filler cards - Art Supplies, Botany, Landscape. But the rest actually require writing. Speaking of which, back to that for me now that I got my next one up :-)

- Erulisse (one L)
Oh good, glad the surgery went well.

And yay for time for projects. Congrats on your Bingo!
Thanks. I'm relieved that the surgery is over. One more crisis averted - LOL.

Thanks on the Bingo, I was rather amazed that I got lucky :-)

- Erulisse (one L)
Thank you, Binky. I am quite relieved myself (fans self with the closest piece of artwork - LOL).
