Sort of a strange day - writing and Nemo

I spent most of today (after my New Mexico style Huevos Rancheros) writing an article for Tablet - around 5 hours. Man! It was an incredible day, and it kind of sucked to be inside, but I was in the zone so I don't remember most of it. I sat down and it was about 1, then it got to be 4 and I got hungry, then there was a supper break, then it was 6 and I was finishing the final edit, then it was 6:30 and it was ready to go. I was barely distracted by the internet and was mostly focused on trying to say what I wanted to say and making the story read well. We'll see how I like it in a few days when the issue comes out.

Afterwards I took a nap, then we took the dogs for a walk (and swim) along Lake Washington. It was just as exquisitely beautiful as it was last weekend, and I found myself wishing once again that I could afford a house close to the lake. (Worthy O said, "Just keep employed for a year!" but that made me laugh since having a good credit rating and having fistfulls of cash are not the same thing.)

The lights are off across the way at Ethel's house. She's the old lady who lives next to me. I've hardly seen hide nor hair of her for about a year and I keep thinking she's going to die. There are bags and bags of stuff in the driveway. I wonder if she's being sent to a nursing home or if something else bad happened?

Anyway, after we went to the lake, Worthy Opponent and I went to the Metro cinema (to save 45 minutes and $6 over going to the Majestic Bay, which is a much better theater) to see Finding Nemo. It was utterly amusing and a very pleasant two hours.

Tomorrow ... what will it be? I have a list of things to do, like Call The Vet and Wash the Dogs (not to mention the dishes), but I am hoping I will also Swim in the Lake and maybe do a Pilates class ... lunch with dagmar_b would be nice too now that she's in town.
