Sunday Update - Week 32

Yeah, I forgot to set this up, and then I slept later than usual, so here I am short on coffee and attempting to write an update post. 

No writing or editing this week.  Don't ask.  I did get an email from ENT with a date, so there's that.

I read a lot this week.  Yesterday, I picked up Death on the Nile by Agatha Christie and I'm working my way through that now.

Did 6 out of 7 days of activity - mostly walking, but also fishing and cleaning.  I finished the week yesterday with a morning loop+ walk and then an evening stroll with Hubs.  I haven't weighed myself lately, so no clue.

No baking.  It's hot again. And we're still working through my last baking extravaganza.

Yesterday, my mouse died - right in the middle of a damn spreadsheet for work.  It wouldn't let me click and drag, which is kind of necessary when I'm taking fives spreadsheets full of data and turning it into one spreadsheet my people can work with.  Argh.  Lucky for me, I have a big box of old computer hardware and found a USB mouse that isn't quite dead yet (the scroller-roller sticks).  It'll work until I get to a store.  (I also found several old style mouses with the round plug that I can't remember the name for right now.  This computer no longer has one of those ports and I don't have that kind of adapter.  USB to round?  Yes.  Round to USB?  No.)

Fishing... On the coolest day of the week, I dragged Hubs out of the house.  We weren't expecting to catch anything, but we both needed to sit on the rocks and stare at bobbers for a while.  I caught a 6" bluegill.  He caught an itty-bitty bluegill.  Not really anything worth mentioning, but at least neither of us were skunked.

We had a bit of an extended-family health scare this week, but last I talked to Mom, the scare is over and everything should be fine.  Unfortunately, Mom's generation is getting up there and these things will be popping up.  No losses in the family for a while, though, so... :knocks on wood:  You do not want to be around me when it's Mom's time.  I'm gonna be a mess.

Thought I was going to have another UTI thing with Kira again, but whatever had her all screwy cleared itself up.  Whew.

Okay, well, I'd better get a move on this morning.  Chores won't do themselves.  Dang it.

What went on in your week last week?  Tell me something good.


  1. Wow. Busy week for you. Sorry about no keepers but sometimes, just sitting on the rocks and watching bobbers is the thing.

    I had a week. Slowing down on the reading (except my own stuff) and listening own stuff. Finally getting around to going wide with the Nightriders series. Taking a long, hard look at them, catching some of the typos previously missed, adding a few bits and bobs here and there and updating the back matter. Halfway through, realized I needed two copies--one for wide and one for re-upload at the 'zon because...updated. Hopefully, I'll have changed enough it will kick off update notices to those who already own the Kindle versions. Also getting the last two into paper format so I can get the paperbacks released.

    Stormy spent the night. Always an adventure.

    Loki got his feline booster shots. He was a little under the weather for a day but now he's back to zoom mode.

    Jake got loose and ran away yesterday. We caught him. Long story. It'll be in my Monday update. LOL

    Other stuff happened. Some good some bad. Nothing terrible. And now it's a new week. Joy. 🙄

  2. It's been way too hot to walk here, too. I usually manage to get in about half, but not always. I can't wait for fall!

    Yikes on the dead mouse! At first I thought it was a live dead mouse, but couldn't imagine what it was doing on your spreadsheet. Derp. I'm lucky I have a spare, since the new keyboard came with a mouse.

    Hugs on the health scare. I'll be a mess when I lose Mom, too.

    Yay for Kira healing up! I worry for Churchill sometimes. He's 19, and that's ancient for a cat, but he seems to be doing pretty well.

    Still plugging away on the dressmaking book. I need to stop plugging and start editing, but I'm almost through with this last source. Then I need to find one for 1862; don't know how I missed I'd shorted it. But the end is in sight!
