Stuff n Junk

Okay, so I'm trying to be good. I'm juggling two books and research for the third, while trying to make myself more noticeable on the internet.  But some things are falling by the wayside.  You know, things like chores, showers, getting the shopping done. I actually did the dishes this morning!  (Hey, that counts as a win in my book - I hate doing dishes.)  Still doesn't make up for running out of milk and being a milk-free household for several days, though*.

In my travels this morning, I read a couple thought-provoking blogs.  I don't know if any of you read Sarah A. Hoyt - pretty smart lady, who's not afraid to say what she means (and her novels are good, too) - but she posted this today: And then I Popped Him One.  Also, Silver had some wise words from the Universe about doing things your own way - which I definitely need to do more often.

Speaking of blogs that make you think, Lauren deStefano had a poignant post the other day.  If you didn't see this on my FB feed, then go read it.

And now, I must toddle off.  Have a great rest of the day folks!

*Evaporated milk works in a pinch, but we didn't have that either.


  1. Thanks for the mention, B.E. I'm right there with you except in the opposite. Real Life is demanding so much of my time, I've let the writing slack. Must change that today. *nods* FYI, I keep a box of powdered milk in the pantry. It works in a real pinch. Like when we've lost power and the ice chest if full of frozen meat and there's no room for my milk. :D

    1. Did you change it, Silver? Don't make me come over there with a carrot and a stick - the way my brain's been I might beat you with the carrot and make you eat the stick.

      Lucky for us, we don't drink much milk, but yes, keeping powdered milk around the house is an excellent suggestion. I'll have to put that on the list. (I think growing up drinking powdered milk made me repress that it even existed. LOL)

  2. Try keeping powdered milk on hand. It's not tasty, but properly sealed it lasts for ages. (From someone else who runs out of essentials. :)

    Juggling three projects is exhilarating, but no fun. I'm trying to do the same at the moment. I decided to focus on one section of the book(s), making it The Book. Plus two patterns, after swearing I'd only work on one at a time. My dishes are sitting in the sink just now, but only from lunch. Pinkie swear.

    1. Ugh, don't remind me about the taste of powdered milk, Deb. Especially if you don't stir it well enough and you get a chunk... :shudder:

      Sounds like we're both juggling right now. I actually managed to do the dishes AND vacuum the carpeted rooms plus edit and rewrite. Today, I tackle the hard floors and chapter19.
