Sunday Update - Week 12

Here we are at Week 12.  Seems a little much considering.  Twelve weeks into 2019 already?  :shudder:

Anyway, here's how my week went.

I didn't do any writing or editing.  I just can't seem to muster the will to work.  The Kindle and the notebook and the red pen are sitting next to my recliner, but meh.

I've been doing some FB marketing because Project Hermes is on sale through Thursday night.  I don't have any fundage right now for advertising, so I'm doing it all myself.  With expected results.  I have a sale on the SCIU books starting on the 3rd, and no advertising for that either yet.  We'll see if I can't scare up something. 

I didn't get a whole lot of reading done, but two books isn't too bad.  And the book I'm reading now is a slow read.  Enjoyable, but slow.

Only two days of activity this past week.  Monday I went fishing in the morning and then did garden work in the afternoon.  Which landed me with a squonky spot in my neck/shoulder and pretty much crapped out activity for a few days.  Friday, it was better so we went for a walk around the loop. Ugh, I am so out of shape again that the loop was a killer.  Need to get back to doing that walk 3-4 times a week.  Oh, and my weight is hovering between 177 and 178.  I started the year at 180, went up two pounds from there, and since then the overall trend has been downward, so I can't complain.

Oh, and while I was gardening, I found the first tick of the year.  Which means my time in the woods is almost at an end.  Guess I'll have to find something else to do until autumn.

One of the days last week, I made peanut butter cookies.  Must've been Sunday because I couldn't have done it with my neck screwed up.  Anyway, they taste good, but I must've done something wrong because they were too wet and sticky to accept the crosshatching.  Only one looks right.  I found a different recipe, so I'm going to try again later this week. 

I did a thrift store run yesterday.  I wanted to look for a spring jacket.  A stroke of luck to find when I got there that all coats and jackets were 25% off.  I found a really nice canvas jacket.  And I picked up two books - a paperback and a hardcover.  $3.75 out the door.  I already had a copy of the paperback.  I always buy Vince Flynn's novels when I see them, but more often then not, I find I already have it.  Derp.  I keep the better copy and donate the worse one.  The hardcover was an old copy of My Friend Flicka.  Can't wait to read it.

Okay, well, I think that about wraps it up for me today.  How did the world revolve in your world last week?


  1. There's a world and it's revolving? Huh. Who knew?

    I hear you on the lumpen stuffs. No writing (and now I'm dodging emails from my editor *hangs head in shame*. No exercise beyond errands.

    Life is pretty crappy at the moment and that's translating into almost everything. Yippee. This, too, shall pass.

    I need to win that $750 millions lottery. Too bad I don't have the $20 bucks to enter.

    I've been hiding in books. Some good, some bad, some rediscovered. I covered most of that in your reading post yesterday.

    Huge, toxic "discussion" going on what is supposed to be a professional writer's loop attached to a professional writers' organization. Too bad the ranters are attacking anyone with a differing opinion or story as being unworthy because they are none of the "acceptable" labels. I've stayed out of the fray because I would burn bridges. I need to just stay away.

    There's not enough coffee in the world. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    I'm going back to hiding under the covers now. Let's hope the coming week is better for both of us! Hang in there. :)

  2. My life is so boring. *I'm* so boring. But I'm grateful I can say that, with all the troubles in the Midwest.

    The dressmaking book is still toddling along. :-)
