Sunday Update - Week 14

Well, that was another week.  The first week of April.  Woohoo.

I'm back to editing again.  Last time I checked I was at 42% on the Kindle read-through / note-making phase.  Which means next up is learning whether the middle is as bad as I remember it.  Middles... Ugh.

This is the middle of a sale again, so I've been doing a lot of marketing.  Not a lot of selling, but I keep trying.

The reading went well this week.  Two books I seriously enjoyed and one dud. I'm enjoying the book I'm on now.  I thought it was MG - the MC is 13 - but it's a little grisly for MG.  :shrug:

On the activity front, I did something 6 out of 7 days - walking, fishing, cleaning,  I haven't started back on any actual exercise routine.  Maybe next week.  We'll see. Let's not talk about weight, k?

Spent a bit of time on the pay-job this past week.  Which is good as long as the mail service keeps bringing me my paychecks.  They lost one a couple weeks ago.  They cut me a replacement one, but I wonder how the postal people would like it if one of their checks got lost for two weeks.  Hmm.

In wildlife news, the deer are starting to show their pregnancies.  I counted six pregnant out of eight in the yard the other day.  And that's not even all the does we have.  I can't wait for the babies to arrive.

I spent a lot of yesterday morning working on the garden beds.  Ugh, there were a lot of weeds and a lot more to go.  And moles.  Ugh.  Time to pepper the gardens again, so I went to Amazon to see how much pepper I could get at one go and what it would cost me.  They have a 5lb container of black pepper for about $30, which is cool. BUT they also had a 6lb container of cayenne for about $28, which is even cooler.  Then I googled to see what spice works best to deter moles.  Yep, cayenne is better than black.  BUT coffee grounds apparently deter moles, too.  I have tons of coffee grounds readily available - I mean, once I start saving the used stuff instead of throwing it away.  Cha-ching.

Yesterday also saw me making homemade pizza again.  Hey, it's healthier than store bought.  (Not by much, but I'll take what I can get.) 

What happened in your Week 14?

  1. Yay for the deer, boo to the moles!

    I'm falling into the dumps, but still waddling along in the dressmaking book. Do tell me the end is in sight. ???

    I suspect my problem is just the changing weather, though.
