White Sky

It's snowing out. The smallest snowflakes I've ever seen are floating about as if the air is full of dust motes or tiny feathers.
The air is white and there is the faintest coating of sugar-frosting on the tree trunks and cars. Maybe it will stick on the ground, but I don't think so. It wasn't supposed to snow until tommorow, but it's better than the drizzling rain we were supposed to get.
I went to the gym this morning and it was 'stretching' day.' I don't stretch. I can't touch my toes and so today was like a torture session for me as we bent and pulled and twisted every which way. I took yoga hoping to get more supple, not realizing how much it would help my back. Now I can't do without my yoga class, but I still can't stand up, keep my legs straight, and touch my toes. There are just some things I can't do.

I have to get back to work on my book now. Yesterday I drew up a timeline, a character list, and made a map of the city the story takes place in. I needed to visualize a few things. I also have to choose a name for the nightclub in the book -What do you think? It's a burlesque club with a pool room, dance floor, and small stage for an occasional male strip show.


Here are my 13 choices: (This is my friend Andrea and I brainstorming - her with jet-lag and me with an ear-ache, lol)

1) The Curtain
2) Purple Velvet
3) Red Curtains
4) Curtains
5) Purple
6) Red
7) Scarlet
8) Dee's Place
9) Purple Dee
10) Red Velvet
11) Scarlet Dee
12) Strip Me
13) ???
Well - I'm still open to suggestions!
Have a good day -

PS - visit more Thursday Thirteens!

Snow sounds so much ... softer.. than this rain we're getting. The drenching, puddle making, soak your shoes variety. Blech.

Jona said...

Scarlet sounds kind of right to me (not that I would have a clue ;o))

Sam said...

LOL - one vote for Scarlet then. Thanks Jona!
Karen - it went back to rain this afternoon - UGH!!

Virenda said...

LOL, A LOT Of curtains and red, oh and purple.


How about The Velvet Room??

Or Red Velvet Lounge?

:0) Only a suggestion, I'm sure you'll come up with something better.

Lena said...

I'm thinking "Onyx" - I don't know why.

Of your choices, I'd say Purple Dee just because its unexpected.

I'll email you as I think of more! I know you'll be waiting with baited breath. Ha!

Mine are up.

Sam said...

Oh no!! I love all these suggestions!!
I'm going to have to put them in a hat and do a drawing.

I'll suggest anything with "Scarlet"
The Scarlet Lounge?
The Scarlet Door?

BTW...I still haven't figured out how to do the Thursday Thirteen with the proper links but I'll do one anyway on my other blog
