I've just added something about cardinal spiders (Tegenaria parietina) to my Web Extras page for THE VISCOUNT'S KISS on my website. Again, research yielded an interesting little aside that I was able to incorporate into my story.
I've finished most of the projects that take several hours of time to accomplish, so I'm planning to get back to the work-in-progress next week. However, the rest of this week is going to be a bit of a wash, what with a three hour hair appointment tomorrow (pre-wedding test drive of new color) and a Major Social Event, so in addition to finishing a few of the smaller house-related projects (like re-hanging pictures), I'm going to work on getting blogs and web page additions ready ahead of time. Then I won't have to worry about writing them when I'm more involved in wedding hoopla.
I'm obviously not the sort who leaves things to the last minute. I am all about reducing stress, and for me that means planning my days (even if that often tends to go awry), making lists (with the added bonus of a sense of accomplishment when I can cross things off) and getting things done sooner rather than later, if I can.
