Sunday Update - Week 24

Hello.  We're 24 weeks into 2020.  I say we stop here and have a do over.  Reboot the year and maybe it won't be crashed went it loads up again.

I wrote some words.  And then self-doubt got me.  Nothing else writerly got done.

I read some good books and DNF'd some not-so-good ones.

I finally got my computer backup into the safety-deposit drawer, so that's checked off my to-do list.

Yesterday morning, we saw the year's first fawn...
The light was low and it wasn't standing still for the photo, so yeah, it's blurry, but hey, I got a pic.

I managed 5 days out of 7 for activity - cleaning, walking, yard stuff.  Unfortunately, the activity stuff is not showing on the scale, so we won't talk about that right now.  Suffice it to say, I have gained back all the weight I lost in March.  I expected I would, but I'd hoped I wouldn't.  :shrug:

Speaking of yard stuff, I started doing block work under the deck.  Unfortunately, there's been a recent blow-up of 'rona cases in the area, so skipping down to the building supply store for more blocks is 'unnecessary' and therefore, on hold.  At least until I can't stand the self-imposed incarceration anymore and get all 'let me outta here before I snap'.  Then it will be necessary for the safety of all mankind.

The Owl informed me that she needs some stuff the next time I go to the store.  I'm all like 'what do you need' and thanks to my extreme hoarding and inability to throw stuff away, I actually had what she needed tucked away already.  Score one for me.

If you've been stopping by, you'll see there've been a lot of pictures going up here lately.  It's either that or rant.  So, pics it is.  And I have LOTS of pics I can share. 

So, tell me, how was your last week?  Anything good to share? 


  1. You mostly know what all went on last week with me. Nothing bad for me, other than also the urge to rant. 🤬

    I've got to get LG off FB. The man is going to stroke out or have a coronary. The stupid is rampant so I'm trying to just walk away and ignore because there's nothing I can do. 'Nuff about that. 🤯

    FAWNS! FTW!!!!! 💖💕💖

    We had rain Friday, cooler temps and last kid ⚽ game Saturday (Jake got to go because only 1 game and temps under 90), and woke up to thunderstorms early this morning. We still need more rain so I'm cool with it. Enjoy my first ☕ while the house was quiet.

    Our Chinese beer flu spiked again last week then number of new cases, while high, have been decreasing each day. We expected the surge but hospitalizations remain low. 😷

    I'm in a bit of a reading slump. This gives me a sad. Maybe it'll perk up my writing. I did get a few snippets written on the new characters. I don't need to be writing them yet but hey, words are words and I'll grab inspirations whenever I can! 💡

    And that's it for me. Now that I'm semi-caffeinated, I should probably set up my blog for tomorrow. Hang in there! Happy Dad's Day to Hubs (and you! Because moms doin' the dad thing are cool.) 🥰 Later, tater!

  2. Yay for your fawn! That little guy is really moving.

    I'm not. I'm crawling along at half speed. But progress is happening.
