Leave it to the thirteenth week to mess me up. Well, at least I did 12 weeks in a row without missing a Sunday. I'll work on getting back on track this week - with everything.
Speaking of which, my writing is still derailed. I did start re-reading my first Djinn book to get back into the flavor of the world. So far, so good. But would you believe that as many times as I've been over this damn book, I'm finding typos?! Arrgghh. They probably aren't any more numerous than your standard average published book, but it's still damn frustrating.
In reading news, I'm up to 32 books for the year. I think that leaves me about 8 books ahead which means I could go an entire month without adding books and still be on track for my goal. Which may be what happens so I can get my writing on. Then again, I just downloaded the first book in Lynn Viehl's steampunk series - Disenchanted & Co., so I may not be able to go a whole month without reading someone else's books.
Yesterday, I finally watched Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - both parts, straight through. Yes, yes, I am a bad Potter fan. But hey, I got the Hubs to watch with me, so that's something. I learned I really need to go back and read the book again. I don't remember most of the shit that went down in the movie happening in the book. Was it really that far off or was my memory failing me? :shrug: Made it really hard to explain to my husband what was going on. (He's never read the books or watched the movies. Fantasy ain't his bag.)
I spent some time this weekend playing with my image program 'painting' the house again. I even tried the Valspar virtual painting thingie. Meh. My own way works better. it's just that with the Valspar program, I know exactly which paint to ask for. I wonder if the paint dudes will freak if I go in with HTML numbers and say 'Give me R211 G125 B34' (a shade of brown we may or may not use). :shrug: For his part, Hubs spent yesterday laying out the new plumbing schematics. It's going to be a busy summer here, that's for sure.
How were things for you last week?
