Sunday Update - Week 20

Good morning.  The coffee is strong here today by necessity.  Grab a cup.

Another week of not much going on in the writing/editing sphere.  I finished round 1 of the edits on Sleeping Ugly.  As I lay in bed last night trying to sleep and failing miserably, I started writing SU#2 in my head.  Desperate for sleep, I did not get up and write any of it down.  Needless to say, I lost all that between then and this morning.  SU is sitting my Kindle waiting for me to get back to work on it, which I will do today.  I have 11 days, but I will have it ready for the editor on June 1st.

I read four books last week.  A crime novel (Deadly Welcome by John D. MacDonald), a fun mystery (Hitwoman in a Pickle by JB Lynn), a fantasy (Dragon's Child by DJ Salisbury), and a romance (Where There's Smoke... by Laura Abbot).  Which puts me only 6 books behind on my Goodreads goal. 

On the get-healthy front, I did something active 6 out of 7 days (took my birthday off) and lost about another half pound.  Bringing me to 3.2lbs lost since I bought the new scale during week 16.  So, about a month.  If you're keeping track - which you probably aren't - that leaves me at 191.2 as of yesterday morning.

Other than buying a cheesecake sampler for my birthday, I ate pretty healthy, too.  Fish or lean meats and salads and fresh fruit at mealtimes.  Nuts and prunes and dark chocolate or baked chips and crackers for snacks.

For my birthday, I had a choice to either go fishing or go shopping.  Since it was hot and sunny, I went shopping.  Bought stuff for my birthday dinner and dessert.  Picked up eight books at St. Vinny's.  Made it home without stopping at KFC.  It was a good day.  But I was so hot and tired by dinner time, I bypassed dinner and had cheesecake instead.  Hubs made himself something or other.  It's all good.

The trout for our anniversary dinner turned out amazeballs. 

I also went fishing once last week.  You can read about that here, if you want to.

That's about it for me.  How was your Week 20?


  1. I made my strongest brew this morning, too. Waiting for it to kick in. And waiting for the thunderstorm to hit, which means I'll shut everything down for an hour or two. Which means I'll have time for more brew. :-)

    Sit down and daydream about SU#2 - with a pen in hand. I bet a lot of it will come back.

    Belated happy birthday! Yum to cheesecake!!!

    I got some work on the dressmaking book done, and some on SR. Not as much as I'd like, but allergies kicked my butt. Gotta put the nose to the grindstone this week!

    Oh, oh. Thunder. Time to go. Wishing you a productive week! :-D

  2. It was a week. I'm not ready for Monday. What else is new? LOLOL
