    Hmmm....very good point. I tip them extra to give me special service, like a mint on my pillow and rose petals in my bathwater and stuff.

    What's going on here? There is absolutely no embezzlement happening anywhere.

    Back to normal operations!

    Well, this duchess' day is going to be night, Your Majesty, as I have to get some sleep now. I have been in revisions and my eyes are too tired to go on.

    Have a good sleep, whatever time of the day/night it falls on.

    Good morning, Your Majesty. Good morning, Royals. I hope all is well in the kingdom. Today will be yet another day of cleaning the royal chambers. Despite the Grand Duchesses assurance there are people for that, they haven't shown up yet, so I'm going to have to do the work myself. And by "myself" I mean force my kids to do it while I drink coffee and chill on AW.

    Good morning, Your Majesty.

    Good Saturday, dear Royals.


    I'm glad you have the cleaning thing sorted, Princess Lillian.

    I got up early this morning, before 6 a.m., for what reason I do not know. I've fed the dog, walked the dog, and had a cup of coffee. Then I heated up another cup of coffee and just realized I have it sitting in the microwave, where it will be cold again. *Sigh*

    I'm off to re-re-heat the coffee.

    Good morning, Grand Duchess and good luck with the coffee this time.

    I also woke up too early for reasons unknown. I had hoped to sleep in but such was not the outcome.

    I just had to look inside my coffee cup to see if I drank it, if that tells you anything.

    I don't think so. I think my brain is just mush today. It happens.

    I'll be very careful about what I write while I am in this state. It just means more editing. And I'm not driving today, so that's a plus.

    I hope you get a nap in, Duchess. It sounds like you could use one.

    Okay, I suspect the King put a hex on us. I woke up much too early and realized we're running low on coffee. I'm feeling murdery.

    Hahahaha. I do suppose it is possible, Your Grace.

    I have finished my revision of the battle scene. Well, all except for the final read through to make sure I haven't made a mistake in spelling or something. Now to see if it is any good or if I just spent all that time and energy on making it worse.

    I'm up and re-writing my novella. So far, so good. Lots of friends wanting to chat today, though. And I'm feeling a bit ranty.

    Hope all are well.

    Also this afternoon, I'm working on roughly the 17th attempt at creating a scoopable, passable non-dairy, non-processed sugar ice cream. This is where I'm at right now. It tastes good, but it's icy still, and after hardening in the freezer I'll know if it's scoopable. I don't have high hopes for this incarnation and I think it's back to the drawing board.

    Good evening, Royals!

    I spent today at the zoo with a friend. It was very enjoyable.

    Oh, and I had a nightmare the other night. I dreamed the radio station started playing Christmas music already.

    There are people who celebrate Christmas in July. I generally shun them. I'm sorry about the dream.

    No, I'm pretty sure I've had worse dreams than that. Like still being married to my ex.

    I hate dreams about the past. I've been getting those in phases off and on for the past few months. Very poignant dreams, too, with all kinds of things to say.

    Just your subconscious trying to work through things. I hate them, but I know why they happen.

    Me too. And also, there are times where the subconscious, or at least mine, needs to let the conscious mind know certain things. I get that a lot.
