The lull

Whoops! Guess it’s been a little while since I last posted. Let’s blame the holidays and move on, shall we?

Well, there’s not too much going on anyway, to be honest with you. And I’m rather enjoying this post-Christmas, pre-New Year’s lull. It’s like, there’s a bunch of stuff that’s on the verge of happening, but it’s not quite ready yet, so I’m just sitting back to let it simmer.

Oh, but don’t get too excited by words like “verge” and “simmer.” Because by “bunch of stuff,” I basically mean a couple guest posts for other blogs, and a new Just Between Us column. But writing is writing, right? Write!

Speaking of JBU, Angie did another beautiful thoughts-in-pictorial, this one titled “My sensible heart.” I don’t know why but I love these pictorials that she does. They’re so… unusual and expressive.

Also unusual and expressive? My cousin’s baby girl:

Man I love that kid.

Like this:



Keep the cookies, I’ll take the puppy


I’ll show you mine if you show me yours…


  1. I really like your description of the time between Christmas and New Year’s. I don’t quite have that “verge” feeling, but I definitely have the “simmering” feeling – and the good simmering feeling, not the bad one. Although I did a little bad simmering two days ago when my father-in-law rejected gift subscription to Netflix that we gave him! Who does THAT? Only an idiot, which apparently my father-in-law is! But now I’m over it and back to the good simmering. Here’s to a good soup on New Year’s!

  2. Merry belated Christmas and a very Happy New year to you Kristan.

    May the year 2010 be full of creative energy and finished writing projects.

  3. I love the lull. It’s like an excuse to say, “Yeeeeah, I think I’ll leave a few hours early from work today. What? It’s the holidays.”

  6. Sonja-
    Crazy guy! I’ll take the Netflix if he doesn’t want it! :P

    Thanks! Same to you. ;)

    Michelle and Krista-
    Oh how I wish I could just leave work… Unfortunately I get paid by the hour, so I’m the only person with set hours. :( But it’s ok. Since it’s quiet I think I can get more writing done.

    I feel it too!

  7. Ahh so cute! Enjoy the lull, I know I am. But I’m sad I don’t get to read any 20SW anytime soon. Anxious for you!
