Happy Monday! *headdesk* Or maybe not!

ALL THE THINGS AND DOING AND IT'S POOL PARTY MONTH!!! How are you doing on that? We've already had some people finish! Not me, but you know... some people! Have you picked your fandom? Have you started? Is there anything we can do to help?

Crazy day here at work so I'm just going to go right into telling you you're awesome - YOU'RE AWESOME! YOU ARE!!

And then my pinterest question: What is your favorite thing to do outdoors when it's nice out. Keep your answers appropriate for all audiences or write a fic about it!

Mine is reading. When it's not too hot, not too cold, coffee and a good book in a comfy patio chair and a snoring Eggs at my toes!

Favorite outdoor thing is definitely be at the beach...doesn't matter what the weather is. I'll hang out there on a cloudy day just as well as a sunny one. :) Sitting there...walking there...its all good to me.

Ive been so focused on getting my edits done...and now my wip, I haven't tackled anything new. The edit is done, so now its on to the wip fanfic to finish.

I love the beach in the rain, or the sun, or with friends!!! Excellent answer.

GO YOU!!! You've got this!

Thanks to our most recent birthday girl, I sort of found a new fandom. I wrote a (mostly) Chuck/White Collar crossover. I've written a tiny bit in the Chuck fandom and nothing for White Collar so... it's something.

Hopefully tomorrow is less crazy for you at work!

I love to lay on the porch swing my in-laws have out by their pool and read. The kids are old enough now that I don't have to watch them every second they're in the water, but I like being out with them even though they're both teens now.

Porches are meant for reading!!!!

Family and reading, heaven.

Yay words!!!

Yes, they are! I just wish I had enough of one at home to sit on.

Basically. If I could only get the cat to not run away when he's outside, I'd bring him along. :D

Oh, I love to go to the beach but...not so much around here. The beaches are a mess and too crowded. Though there are some on the Jersey Shore across from me that I'd like to try at least once before this summer is over.

I did write a pool party fic! I didn't even realize I was doing so- but I wrote OUAT (Killian/Emma AU) for a b'day fic for guineamania, and I've never written OUAT! So there it was, done and everything. I'll link it up on the roundup post I'm sure is coming end 'o month.

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE Lookit the pool party sneaking up on you!!!!

I love a quiet beach. It makes all the difference in the world. I would rather beach in inclement weather than beach in a crowd. WE'RE GOING TO DO ALL BEACHES!!!!

I've tried many times in the past to take my laptop out with me on nice days, but I can never see the screen well enough to write. Thus, I always end up going back indoors.

But when the weather's real nice and we have the time, room, and energy, we always enjoy walking with our kids. It's a sight -- you should see all our babies following us! :)

We also have them pretty well trained to answer the "Happy Birthday" song (as they always get cans on their birthdays). That can come in handy any time we have unexpected visitors, bad weather, or any other reason to get them gathered up in a hurry.

HA!!! That sounds like an awesome walk!!!

THE BEACH here too, and we have some great ones that aren't always busy (although all of NZ gets out there on a good day so sometimes there's no luck finding a quiet spot), and winter walks on the beach can be invigorating too, so I'm good at all times with a few different beaches only half an hour away from home. ;-)

Have only got halfway with my pool party fic, and I've also dropped the ball a bit since the end of the 100 in 100, so I need to get A back into G and get it finished.
