Lovely Midsummer Night

The Midsummer moon was gorgeous last night. We have an east-facing picture window set above our front door that is perfectly placed to frame the moon in the night sky.

Here's a shot of it during the day. I should have taken a picture of the moon yesterday, but I didn't think of it.

I made a vegetable pot pie filled with summer vegetables (and tofu) for dinner, and we opened up all the windows to let in the cool air. I think Hobkin might not have been overjoyed at the relative humidity that created:

He flopped on the naked floor in his area to sleep.

Poor lil guy. When the house cooled down a bit more, he climbed up beside me on the couch to cuddle. I hope he's not too uncomfortable in summer with his fur coat. I know dog owners sometimes shear them, but I don't think Hobkin would stand for that.

Writing Stuff

The crits continue to pour in. Yesterday it was all about the editing. Several passes on the short story up for crit, and now I'm second-guessing whether I want to put back in the flashback sequence. Feh.

I've ducked, dodged, and hidden. But alas, I have, at long last, been tagged by the fleet and agile nmsunbear.

List your current six favorite songs, then pick six other people that have to do the same...

1. "Montagues and Capulets" by Sergei Prokofiev (part of the Romeo & Juliet ballet suite).
2. "The Peach Yard" a guqin solo.
