Blue Skies Smiling at Me

This is the kind of day I imagine inspired these lyrics when Irving Berlin wrote them way back in the 1920's. I'm posting some pics here to prove that yes, there are some days here in northeast Ohio when there's nary a cloud in the sky and the treetops meld into the blue background to look like paintings I (we all) made as a child. It was such a spectacular day here I just had to go out with my friend and hit the links. So when friends and family wonder why my book rewrite has stalled and I seem to be lured away from my computer, here are some reasons.

This picture on the right is my family's favorite spot in the summer. And here are some more pics taken from this favorite spot:

Any other writers out there struggling with writing while spring awakens and school draws to an end??? What do you all do to stay on track?

Love that song, I remember Bing Crosby singing it in White Christmas! There's definitely a change in my writing schedule this time of year with more outdoor activities - yardwork, gardens - beckoning. I guess I just am more inclined to really budget and schedule my time to keep the writing in place.

I hear you. I need to be better disciplined with my writing time.

Although it is lovely outdoors these days, there is always WORK out there for me.

I hate work. I do love blue skies, however.
