Okay. Here we are. Another week on the books for 2016. Two weeks left until 2017. I keep seeing people saying how 2017 is going to be awesome and it occurs to me that 2017 will be just like 2016 unless the individual does something to make it different. Don't just wish for a better year. Make it so. Jus' sayin'.
That said, I am not in the process of making anything different. I did not write or edit anything this past week and the coming week ain't looking good neither.
I read two books last week. First off, I finished a book I started 42 years ago or so. You see, when I was about four, I decided I wanted to write a book. So, I got some paper and my mom's copy of Robinson Crusoe. And I began writing Robinson Crusoe - as in copying it word for word. I think I made it about 2 paragraphs in. I read the rest of the book for the first time last week. I also read Mickey Spillane's The Deep. Awesome stuff. My new favorite Spillane novel. So good.
I spent some time helping Hubs tidy up the neighborhood well house. One day, we cut down trees together, then I pulled weeds while he cut the tree bits into manageable pieces. Another day, we insulated the place. Good thing, too, because it got down to like 5F last night. It was ass-kicking work, but it's done and we don't have to worry about it anymore.
All of my Christmas gifts have arrived - either here or to their intended recipients. (We're pretty sure. Hubs has to call his mom to make sure she got hers.) Seems like everyone's happy with their gifts. I know we're happy with ours. Hubs and I gave each other fishing stuff. It's basically all for bass. Yamamoto Senko artificial baits, hooks, sinkers, etc. I also got us a knot-tying guide (more for me than him) and a copy of Petersen's Guide to Freshwater Fish. It's pretty awesome, even if they did pluralize bass to basses. (I just googled it and it's acceptable, but it's weird - like pluralizing moose to mooses.)
I fished a little last week, but not a lot. It's too freakin' cold. Oh well. Spring isn't that far off. ;o)
How were things in your world last week?
