Some pursue happiness, others create it.  
I've been feeling icky today. It's my own fault, as I've not been taking my medicine regularly since last week (never fear, I got the script refilled yesterday, so all will be well in a few days). Anyway, we didn't go anywhere today because of me feeling like death on a cracker.

The boys and I were on the front porch, watching a storm roll in through the sunset (a pretty impressive piece of God's handiwork, for sure) and Ethan leans into me.

Ethan. Do you still feel yucky?

Me. Yeah. Thanks for asking.

Ethan. Really yucky? Are you any better?

Me. No, I still feel bad.

Aaron. Like bologna on a tortilla.

(Ethan and I just look at him)

Ethan. Yeah, that is pretty bad.

Not that either of them are forced to eat bologna at our house. I think that stuff is foul.

Anyway. I've written quite a bit on a multichapter fic, Up to chapter three! It's a Ron/Pansy, and an idea I've not seen explored in that particular slice of fandom. So yay for being creative and stuff. Beta still needed for that one, but it's a bit more work than a drabble. And I'm going to make blueberry peach jam in the morning if I feel better. Honestly, blueberry peach jam might make me feel better. Yep. It's a plan, for sure.
I feel:: blahblah
I hear:: Ethan and AJ laughing upstairs

Your jams sound so yummy.

I'm always available to beta your Ron/Pansy. I owe you, for a start. But also, I love love love Ron/Pansy.

How exciting! I've never had a Brit offer to beta for me before. Who knows how much American BS I write in without even knowing it?

I absolutely adore R/P. And I'm really in no hurry to post. In fact, I'd like to finish it before I post it, so it's all easy breezy on my end.

I know I've emailed you, but none of the addresses in my list scream out "butterly_kate" to me. If you could remind me again what it is? You can send it to persephone3333@gmail.com.

It's katy_clock [at] hotmail.co.uk

I will Britpick like crazy in that case then! Honestly though when I'm reading for non-UK writers it's usually just little turns of phrase that a lot of people wouldn't blink at.

Though I have seen come crazy American-ised stuff in the past (on ff.net, of course!)

Get after it, then. I'm not afraid of correction!

I was reading a Bones fic the other day that had Booth saying 'bloody hell' and 'arse over tits.' It made me make a face. I didn't stop reading, but it totally interrupted the flow, you know?

I hope mine won't be as bad as ff.net! Good grief.
