2037 words typed today. An auspicious start to the month. Managed to write up the key to the map of the Rome compound and the bio on James Ligatos. Started on Benta and Padma and Chester and Carlos, but brain conked out.

Finished primary knitting on Bat Shawl. Now to get the edging on.

Read some on Cold Company by AJ Aalito. I like her stuff, and this is more engaging than the last.

Bakes 10lbs of chicken yesterday and a pork roast today. All processed into meal-sized packets for the next month. Have 10 more lbs of chicken to do.

Did wash. Took out trash.

Planning for the week ahead,
Oli's paperwork to school
call rhuemetologist
3 Action Link jobs
Check WalMart for Turquoise yarn
Job interview, 2:30

I am exhausted and it's not even 9.

I washed dishes. I washed my roaster oven. I'd forgotten about the turkey broth... YEUGHGGGGGH!
I baked 10Lbs of chicken leg quarters and washed 2 loads of laundry. I'll wash the third in the morning and take them all to the laundromat.

I started on the spread sheet for the 2015 royalties

I cooked dinner.

I have to process the leg quarters.
I feel like I've been used as a dustmop.

It was a VERY busy day.

Oli had an endocrinologist appointment and a pediatrician visit. It's not her thyroid causing her trouble, which we just reconfirmed. The Pediatrician checked her over and did the paperwork to get her on Homebound Services, so she doesn't have to physically go to school, just do her lessons at home. The days when she does make it to school wipe her out for the next day, even though I drive her. Just walking around the building all day is too much. And she hates using the wheelchair. Kids are awful about it and don't get how she can walk one day and not the next.

We had lunch at Panera, which I had never tried, thanks to reannon and Jimmy. Mediterranean chicken flatbread and Greek salad. VERY yum.

A visit to WalMart netted us the lavender yarn for the commission, but the turquoise was sold out. Oli went to Goodwill and got her dress for her Buttercup costume. She has amazing Thriftstore luck.

Grocery shopping. Must clean out my roaster oven and begin the 20lbs of chicken leg quarters. They all have to be baked, skinned, deboned and packaged into meal-sized portions today. Also got a raincheck on pork roasts for 99c.

Then over to the office. Still working on the game source book. Did up the map for the compound in Rome. Benta's Villa, the Men's Pleasure Club, the Women's Pleasure Club, the Mixed Pleasure Clubs, the Commons, the Offices, the cottages, even the Great Block. (Alas, we may lose the scene where James Ligatos, lean and hardened from work, tanned deep bronze, his long black hair uncut and the curls wild, is sold naked from it...)

I crashed on the sofa at about 3:30.

Today is cooking chicken and cleaning kitchen and doing laundry.

Nimoy dead at 83

I never got to meet him, but I kept up with his work. He was an artist of several sorts: actor, director, photographer, musician, although his choice of songs was always awful. His photos in Shekhina were glorious.

The end was not unforeseen, but it hurts. The galaxy is a little smaller today.
My friends, I grieve with thee.
