Sunday Update - Week 35

Me, just now: "It is Sunday?"

Stuff happened this week.  I got some editing done.  Not nearly enough, but hey, better than nothing.  I did a boatload of marketing.  Not nearly enough, but hey, sold some stuff.

To that end, I wrote a sales update post for tomorrow's Outside the Box.  (Yes, I posted it on Friday by accident, but it's gone from there now.  Read it tomorrow.)

I also set up marketing for an SCIU sale.  Sept 10-16th.  Which ended up being unfortunate in terms of other things on the schedule*.

My reading week was kinda crazypants.

I was active 6 out of 7 days, but it was also shot week and according to the doc's scale, I gained two pounds.  Here's hoping that'll drop off by next week's Update.  Once again, the activity was mostly walking or cleaning.  The 1.6 mile hard-target walk is getting easier, which is awesome.  I did count the one day I spent hefting corn bags around.  Fifty pound sacks of corn is no bag of feathers, lemme tell ya.

Speaking of hefting corn bags, you probably already know about my maize weevil fun.  If not, go read Thursday's post.

In the baking realm, I did a batch of granola bars and an oatmeal cake.  This time, the bars were chocolate chip, almond, raisin.  And this time, I didn't do the topping on the cake.  The plain cake is plenty yummy without the topping.

I also learned I have jury duty coming up on the 11th.  (See above *.)  There's a chance that I'll call the night before to find out it's been cancelled, but with the way my luck is running, I'll not only have jury duty, but it'll last more than one day and shit out my gumption to pimp my sale.  Since I already have an ad paid for on the 12th, I can't reschedule the sale.  Umm, wee.

As for the coming week, I have nothing planned.  If I'd been paying attention, I would've made Blink free tomorrow.  Labor Day... fighting against the Union... that sort of thing.  Better luck next year.

And that's it for this week's Sunday Update.  What's been happening in your world?


  1. There was a week. Storms. Family roof damage. Sick cat. Some writing but not enough. Procrastination. Funny kitten. Sweet doggos. And for some strange reason, I'm hungry for Chinese. Go figure. And now I should set up my blog for tomorrow. Or not. 😂

    1. Ack! That was a week. Blerg. I'm glad you have the other furbabies to help keep you sane.

      I hope you found some Chinese and some motivation to write your blog. :hugs:

  2. Best of luck with jury duty. Maybe you can get a story out of it.

    Good news, finally! I finished the first draft of the dressmaking book. Hooray! Now I can start peeling out some of the excess stuff. Which is badly needed: (whispers) My first draft is 517 pages long, before the illustrations. Oops!

    1. Thanks, Deb. I hope I can at least get that out of jury duty. Unless they cancel it.

      Yay! Go you! Good luck whittling it down. You'll get there and it'll be awesome. =o)
