May 13, 2008: Too much tea?

I didn't believe it was possible to have too much tea. It's like having too much happiness or too many polar bears. (That last one could be just me.) But it is possible to have too much tea, and, as the LOLcats say, "I has it."

The picture shows an entire shelf in the kitchen cupboard I organized today, full right to the back. There's also a single box in a different cupboard because I just couldn't make it fit. Several are duplicates (I have three tins of strawberry tea, which I do like, but as far as I know we're not suffering a tea shortage so I could likely have bought more later) but most are different flavours. I drink one cup a day, two at the most. Egad. Still, it's nice to have options, right?

This week, I'm working through Margie Lawson's emotions course, about writing emotions and non-verbal communication. I've made some changes to Seven as a result, and am working on internalizing this material so I'll automatically write Raoul that way. Interesting stuff!

Writing Project: Raoul's planning - nearing the end!
Time Planned: 2 hours
Time Spent: 2 hours
Favourite Part: Recognizing the 'big decision point' that should have been near the end of the book was too early, and fixing it by just dragging scene titles around. Ah, outlining. :)

Exercise: scheduled rest day
One Fun Thing I Did Today: changed my Facebook profile picture and my Blogger picture to be the one taken after the race. I'm holding my race medal (although not facing forward for some reason) and wearing a plushy blue sweater I crocheted that I love.
