6:00 Worked on my novel. Wrote a scene that makes better use of material barely touched on in a previous draft.
7:15 Ate breakfast – yogurt with bananas and almonds and cereal – and did a crossword puzzle.
7:45 Took Keisha for a walk up the line.
8:45 Had a shower and answered emails.
9:30 Drove to Toronto.
10:30 Delivered files to the Osborne Collection, where lots of archival material for my books (and lots of other authors) is housed.
11:00 Gassed up my car and paid my VISA bill.
11:30 Met writer-friend Frieda Wishinsky at The Flying Dragon. We went for lunch (I’ve already forgotten the name of the restaurant, but it was good, just a few doors down from the bookstore.)
1:00 Did a shift at the CNIB recording studio. Acted as technician on Radiance by Shaena Lambert, being read by Sondra Bolton
4:00 Drove to illustrator-friend Heather Collins’ house to get her to sign her latest book – Out Came the Sun – a gift for our grandson’s birthday
5:00 Did another shift at the CNIB. This time I read Turtle Valley by Gail Anderson-Dargatz.
9:00 On the way home dropped off a bag of clothes I don’t wear any more.
9:30 Chatted with Peter about our day’s activities.
10:00 Went to bed and read a few pages of Time was Soft There by Jeremy Mercer before falling asleep.
I would recommend every book mentioned in this untypical day!
