Hello Mastodon! What's on your plate for today?

I have a new story idea burning a hole in my brain-pocket and a couple free hours this afternoon to try to work it loose!

Good morning Mastodon! Whatcha looking forward to today?

The kids and I are going Bucky-hunting today! 85 Bucky Badger statues around Madison, we've seen ~65, can we catch the rest today before they get taken down?

This is the second awesome adult birthday party mentioned in response to this toot! I have some party-planning work to do before I turn 40! (5 years should be enough time, I hope, but I don't know how fast bouncy-castle reservations go.)

Happy Friday, Mastodon! (Or happy Saturday to some of you by now, I reckon.) What are you looking forward to today or this weekend?

Tomorrow is farmers market day and I! want!! PEACHES!!!

Good morning good morning Mastodon! What are you excited for today?

The kids have their first full half-day of 4K today and I get three! whole!! hours!!! to myself to work. Let's see if I still remember how to make words?!

Good morning Mastodon! What are you looking forward to today?

I'm excited about the sunny but not-too-hot forecast after today! Madison dearly needs a break from rain.

And I got 800 words down today despite only having an hour at home before having to turn back around for early release (plus I had to feed myself lunch during that time). I STILL GOT IT 💪

First day of 4k was great apparently, until the walk home when my son realized a.) there are cool school buses! and b.) he does not get to ride one. :(

I asked my son how he got so big already and he thought about it for a moment and said, "Eating all my food, I guess?" I GUESS.

Good morning Mastodon! What's good today?

This afternoon is my kids' first! day!! of school!!! I'm very excited (writing time!) and very stunned that they are THIS BIG already.

Helloooo Mastodon! Happy Friday - what's good today in your neck of the woods?

My fun plan for today is to convert the 5 zucchini I've pulled out of the garden in the past couple days into several loaves of zucchini bread and/or muffins :3

Good morning good morning good morning! What are you looking forward to today?

I've got all morning to myself and before I clean the basement, hit the gym, and crank out some new words, I'm gonna fall facefirst into P. Djèlí Clark's "The Black God's Drums" 💜

Good morning, Mastodon! What are you looking forward to today?

We have a playdate on the books with friends we haven't seen most of the summer (GOSH it's nice when your kids latch on to other kids who have cool moms).

Morning, Mastodon! What's on your plate for today? Whatcha excited about?

Mine is that I have a new flash story out at Daily Science Fiction! dailysciencefiction.com/scienc

Today's lunch hour pastime: digging through the 8,000 zucchinis in the fridge trying to find the lone cucumber.

Good morning, Mastodon! What are you looking forward to today?

I am going to get my HAIRS CUT.

Still emptying the dehumidifier 3x a day after Monday night's record rain. Climate change in the Midwest is gonna mean a lot more rain records being broken. blog.limnology.wisc.edu/record

I'm gonna take the kids to the Union Terrace today before all the dang university students come back and overrun the place.

Good morning, Mastodon! What are you looking forward to today?

What I'm jazzed about is a nice dinner with beer pairings the spouse and I have tickets to tonight, PLUS grandparents to babysit. 🍻 cheers!
