We visited my parents yesterday and had a great time. It’s always nice to eat a nice Sunday dinner cooked by Mom. My daughter was also able to get her fix of chasing around the cats. Actually, she does really well with them. We were also able to spend time with my Grandfather, which is nice. I think he really enjoys seeing all of us, and loves my daughter.
While I was visiting, I decided to borrow the first Harry Potter book from my Dad. I haven’t read that one in a long time. My plan is to read it, in the name of research. Really, what I’m trying to get at is what made that book so appealing to kids, in the hope of putting a little of that into my novel. I’m not saying I’m going to copy it, but it doesn’t hurt to learn from the best (most successful).
I haven’t shaved since Wednesday, and am getting a little “scruffy” as my wife would say. Yes, the playoff beard is still there, but not pretty.
