Sunday Update - Week 2

It's so much easier to get the week number right when it's only the second week of the year.  ;o)

Anyway, here we go...

I didn't get that round of edits done by Friday like I wanted.  I was too tired after doing other stuff to stay focused on the Kindle for too long.  But it's all good because I still have about two weeks to have it all done and ready for JC.  And if I go a little longer, it's not really a big deal.  (But I don't want to push my luck either.)

Also, I didn't get much reading done.  Shogun is a beast of a book.  Oh, it's entertaining for the most part, but it's a big and unwieldy paperback (like 1200+ pgs in tiny font).  I'll get it done.  When?  Hellifiknow.  Between editing and tiredness, I'm only managing a few pages a day.

Fishing?  Nope.

My big thing this past week was going out into our woods and tidying things up a bit.  Every day, at some point, Hubs and I would take the rake and the limb saw and the garden shears, and head off into the woods.  The wooded part of our land is about 2/3 of our 1.25 acres, and the top third of that is pretty much done.  We've started on the middle third.  It's good exercise and we're having fun doing it.  Plus, it gets both of us out of our desk chairs and into the fresh air for a change.

I heard from the Kid this past week, which was awesome.  When they grow up and go off into the world, the contact gets more sporadic.  :shrug:  I raised her to fly on her own.  Fly and be free, little bird.

I found a new recipe for rolled biscuits this week that are big hit with Hubs.  It still needs some tweaking, though.  Once I get it to where I want it, I'll share it.

And that's about it for me.  What's up in your world?


  1. Here's my biscuit recipe. Easy. No fail.
    PJ's Best Biscuits
    1 1/4 Cup Self-rising flour
    1/2 pint whipping cream.
    Mix flour and shipping cream until dough forms. Roll out on floured surface to about 1" thick. Cut with glass or biscuit cutter of desired size. Bake in greased pan with sides touching at 400 degress for 1-12 minutes.

    See? Easy peasy. I've been ignoring the weather and spending more time on writing lessons for the class I'm teaching than I am writing, though I have gotten some of that done too. Life is pretty boring. LOL

  2. Oh, yum, biscuits!!! :-D
    Oh, bother, I can't eat them. :-/

    I got less done on DWL than planned... because I had a brainstorm for the next book. Now I have a decent (if not as detailed as I'd like) outline to mull over.

    And I had an idea to save an abandoned book! Woot!

    Now I'm hoping they were both brainstorms and not brain farts. ;-} Wish me luck!
