Up late today, but at least before noon. It was one of those days when I felt both listless and restless for most of the day, which is a bad combination. I'm surprised I got anything done, really. Usually days when I feel like this I just stare at the computer, obsessively refreshing the same few websites.
Anyways, I spent the early afternoon catching up this LiveJournal, taking a break in the middle to prepare some more strawberries for freezing. After that, I started in on anotehr quest for poetry markets, finding -- as I had last time I did this -- that almost all of the places I'm interested in are closed for the summer. I did find one new market that actually reads ONLY during the summer, so I sent off a submission there, and I sent another packet off to one of the markets I've been trying to break into for years. So all of my submittable poetry is now out there, two packets to contests and the other four to regular submission queues.
Oddly enough, after all of that, I didn't much feel like napping, so I didn't. Instead, I prepared a chicken with root vegetables for dinner. Unfortunately, the chicken ended up being overcooked and was more than a little tough when it came out of the over. Oh well. It was still edible. And now I'm thinking of going to bed early. Tomorrow is another day off, and I think I'll try to get some reading done. Something other than cartoon books this time, maybe.
