Sunday Update - Week 40

Week 40?  Only 12 more weeks in 2019?  Well, ain't that interesting.

We'll just not talk about writing or editing, okay?

I did some marketing because Project Hermes was free for three days.

If you checked out yesterday's post, you'll see my reading week did not go especially well.  DNF-palooza. I did finish that book yesterday and I didn't want to throw it against the wall or anything.  Surprisingly good ending. 

Five active days last week.  Lots of walking, some fishing, some cleaning - with overlapping on those days.  Weight: 180.4.

Speaking of fishing, nothing major to report.  Fall fishing hasn't started yet because the water is still too warm.  I mean, I went out a couple times and caught fish.  I even brought one home to eat.  But it was mostly little worm-stealing baby punkinseeds and bluegills on the line.  I almost caught a little bass, but it got off.  Still good to be out at the lake again, though.

In baking news, Hubs had been out of cookies for a couple days, so I made a batch Friday.  And as always, I put half the cookies in the fridge and the other half in the freezer.  When I opened the freezer, I about fell over laughing.  Last batch's freezer half was still in there.  Derp.  I didn't even think to look up there.  So now Hubs has LOTS of cookies.   I need to make granola bars today.  I know for a fact he's almost out of those.

We ate the last of the chocolate cake yesterday.  Which is probably why I've been pretty active but haven't dropped any pounds.  :shrug:

We've settled into a routine of shuttling Kira to the litterbox every four hours or so.  Which is fun in the middle of the night, but neither of us has slept through the night in years, so no biggie.  And hey, no more accidents.  Totally worth it.

The fawns have all lost their spots and the baby bucks are all getting buttons.  They're not babies anymore.  :sniffle:

Okay, well that's about it for me.  How did last week go for you?


  1. Yikes! Week 40 is getting scary. I'm so not ready for the year to end.

    I'm still plugging at the book I was threatening to DNF. And still threatening to give up on it.

    I finished 1869! Woohoo! Now I'm at the final proofing stage. I've ordered a print version, and I'm close on the Kindle version. I forgot to include links to my other books. And to save it as a web page. Derp. I doubt that matters in fiction, but with 985 illustrations, it came out with a download fee of $15! Double yikes!!
    I've scheduled a pre-order date of 1/25, so I have lots of time to fix it. :-)

  2. Eeeeek! I just discovered that Word compressed all my photos! I have to do them all over again! :-(

    Hoping that doesn't matter in the print version. I'm not going to mess with that until I see the proof. Sigh.

  3. Yay for getting to the lake again. Babies grow up so fast. Yay for cake, cookies, and granola bars. Boo on no weight loss. Glad you have something that works with Kira! Adidas can't stand on her back legs at all so shuffling her into the box would do no good. Puppy pads, towels, and baths for her. 😥

    I ignored the internet for the entire weekend. I'm just now catching up. Good excuse not to write. And that's all I'll say on the subject.

    Here's to a good week. Maybe.
