Sunday Update - Week 26

It's halfway through the year and I don't have much to show for it.  And last week didn't help.

I thought it would be the week when I finally had a fire lit under my ass, but no.  I did read a post by another author who's having a tough time of it this year, so yeah, it's a thing, but knowing I'm not alone doesn't help. 

The SCIU sale ended with a whimper.  No more sales, no residual page reads.  So, yeah, 27.11 sales for that sale.  I have to get something set up for July, but I have no clue what. 

I did read a lot.  And some of it was pretty good stuff.

Let's not talk about exercise and weight, eh?  I only did 3 out of 7 days.  Weight still holding at 179.  I know I have to do something different and more of it (or less of it when it comes to eating) if I want to see a change on the scale.  I just can't seem to motivate myself to do what needs to be done.  On the upside, walking the loop seems to be getting a mite easier, so maybe I'll add some mileage to that this week.  You know, something like walk the loop (1.1 miles) and then keep going past the house to start the loop again, then turn around.  :shrug:  Maybe I'll try starting my dancing thing up again.

Eating my elephants has obviously not been happening lately.  I really need to get back in that mindset.

Ugh, the heat has hit SW MO.  With popcorn storms.  But Hubs did manage to get the yard sprayed for ticks.  Yay.  I wish the spray did more for flying biting things, but I'm content if it knocks down the ticks.  Man, a big flying biting thing slipped into the house on Friday.  Looked like a housefly on steroids.  Big, loud, fast, ugly motherfucker.  You should've seen us chasing this damn thing around the house with fly swatters.  Managed to trap it in the office and then managed to get it out into the smoking porch where Hubs dispatched it most heartily.  Turns out it was a black horsefly.  Eww.

Not a lot of baking last week... cuz, heat... but I did get another batch of oatmeal cookies made.  And I made a BBQ pork tenderloin in the crockpot.  It turned out excellent.  I might make pizza today.  Depends on how hot I feel this afternoon.

The baby deer are eating solid food now, and supplementing with milk still.  We've determined we have two sets of twins - one by a white-legged doe and one by a brown-legged doe - and two singles.  So, right now, we're saying six for sure.  Yay! 

And I think that's it for me this week.  How did things go in your week last week?


  1. It was a week. I took a couple of chunks out of my elephant and then RL happened. 😒

    Got LG moved. More on that on my Monday update. That only accounted for 1 day of RL taking a bit outta me.

    Loki continues to amuse. Adidas continues to be irritated by him and the boys bemused. Jake is sweet, well-trained, and weird. Boone is Boondoggle. What can I say.

    I did some listening to new stuff finally. Most of it good. I posted late on your reading update post.

    Hot. 'Nuff said.

    I think I have a bed of poison ivy growing in my front island. I'm waiting for flowers to be sure. If it is, I'll have to figure out some way to kill it besides Roundup. 😖

    Not much else going on in my world at the moment. I need more coffee and then to work. That elephant ain't gonna eat itself. 😁

  2. Hugs on the week that was. May this one be better!

    Yay to six fawns! How fun! Pics, please?

    Stillllll puttering away on 1869.
