Nothing Happening Here

The house across the way had painter’s trucks in front of it yesterday and, as that house has been a day or so ahead of us in the sequence of construction, we thought they might come to our house today.

It was late morning before we went to the house.  We had a bit of rain on the way, but it was not raining there.  I took my umbrella inside with me anyway. It looked the same as yesterday from the outside.

And, it looked exactly the same as yesterday on the inside.  We have become so accustomed to seeing progress every day that we were a bit disappointed!

We stopped in Publix for some dinner ingredients (plus a few more things that were not on the list, as usual).  I made a very nice chicken and vegetable dish that I served over angel hair pasta.  Then we took naps.

Later in the afternoon, we went back to the house to see if anything had been done.  It looked just the same as it had in the morning except the clouds had given way to blue sky.

We drove around to the house across the way and went inside for a look there.  The painting was done.  Now we are sure we’ll see paint very soon.

I have been neglecting “Big Creek”  for weeks while we have been watching the house getting built.  The sales are reflecting that.  I can assure you right now:  “Big Creek” is not going to pay the mortgage  I was feeling bad about neglecting my book promotion efforts.  Then I got a notice Facebook:

Lucy Cara Teague Picked up your book yesterday at Big Creek Country Store. It’s wonderful reading and I’m learning about what goes on behind the scenes with our rangers and forestry personnel. Makes me appreciate my visits much more. Also, it’s nice to take a little bit of Big Creek home with me via your book. Almost finished with it so glad to know you have a blog!
Then Kelly of Big Creek Country Store posted this one:

We are having a great response to Ms. Misovec’s book at the Big Creek Country Store! Can’t keep them in stock- need more books Dinata!
That’s enough to cheer up an author!!

      I think that is a great place to sell it, where people are experiencing Big Creek first hand.
