So, here we are again. Week 43. Time's really flying by toward the end of this year. Whoa.
I wrote about 7K new words this past week. Not really burning up the keyboard, but making progress. Still not quite ready to talk about it.
In other book news, I'll be having a Kindle Countdown Deal for Wish in One Hand Thursday - Saturday, with some advertising going out on Bargain Booksy on Friday. It'll be 99 cents all three days.
Started the raking project for Fall 2016. I swear that oak tree grew twice as many leaves this year as last year.
Speaking of raking, while I was out yesterday morning, I raked some leaves toward the big pile and a little gray furry critter scurried out between my feet. It ran around in terrified little circles. At first I thought it was a mole, and I was inclined to send it to its maker, but I couldn't bring myself to smash its little head, so I herded it toward an area I wouldn't be raking in yet and it hid under that side of the big pile of leaves. Later, I did some research and found it was a shrew. That's the first time I've seen one of those alive. The other ones I've seen were dead and covered in Max slobber.
Speaking of Max, he'll be gone one year this coming Friday. =o(
Did a lot of fishing this past week. Didn't catch a ding-dang thing. Which reminds me, I started doing a fishing report on Saturdays. The maiden post is here. I didn't catch anything, but the weather was beautiful and Hubs came with me sometimes, so it was all good. I saw bunches of migrating unidentifiable waterfowl. And I happened upon some mink tracks in the sand - which was pretty cool.
I didn't do much reading. The only thing of note is that I started Jennifer Lyon's Savaged Surrender. It has characters from her Plus One Chronicles, so I can't wait to really get into that. The problem is, I'm really into my WIP right now, so that story is kind of making it hard to read other stories.
Yesterday, on a whim, I made a chocolate cake (Betty Crocker Chocolate Fudge box mix, so don't be too impressed.) Then, after dinner yesterday, I made homemade peanut butter frosting without a recipe. Haven't had any yet, so don't be impressed there either. I'm just happy it set.
That's it for me. What's up with you?
