Sunday Update - Week 35

Well, hell, it's Sunday again, isn't it?  I totally meant to work on this post yesterday and then didn't, but then again, I was deep in spreadsheet stuff and most of yesterday is a blur.  Most of the week is a blur right now, too, so let's see if I can rebuild what happened.  (Thank goodness for the log I keep.)

On the writing front, I finished AuGoWriMo inauspiciously, and started SeeMeWriMo with a bit of a whimper.  But I'm still in the game.  I wrote 24761 words in August but none of that in the last days.  I've written 2735 words so far this month.  And I've done 28% of this round of edits on CU.  I took yesterday off because spreadsheet stuff.

Not a lot of reading got done last week.  I can't decide what I want to read right now.  I tried that du Maurier, but meh.  I'll find something.  I did download what promises to be a fun cozy mystery, but right now, my Kindle is occupied with edits.

As for exercise and activity, I did four days out of seven.  All walking.  I made my best time ever going around the loop - 1 mile of hilly terrain in 22 minutes.  (I can do 1.6 miles in 29 minutes, but that's on my mostly flat, hard target walk.)  I kept the same pace I usually do, but I didn't have to stop on the uphills.  Go me.  Weight: 178.2.  That pound I lost to stress mostly came right back.  :shrug:

No baking this week, but I'm feeling a serious need for cake.  Maybe today.

No fishing either, but they're predicting a cool down soon, so there's hope.  I definitely wouldn't be fishing this weekend anyway.  Labor Day.  :shudder:  It's all peopley out there right now. 

I'm up to 2.4 million in play money at the poker site.  Would that it were real.  And I made a straight flush yesterday.  It's all luck of the draw, but still.  The skill comes in trying to extract as much money as possible from your opponents with the hand you have.  (And trying to avoid losing as much money as possible along the way.)

Like I said, I spent a lot of time yesterday on spreadsheet stuff.  Loads of typing stuff in and comparing stuff to make sure the numbers are right.  More of that today so I can finish this project and put it behind me.  At least the typing part is done.  Whew.

Well, it's time to start the day here.  What went in on your worlds last week?


  1. There was a week. I got some words written. I got line edits from NY. I gave blood and got an orange OSU T-shirt. I've seen two of the new batch of kittens but not the 3rd so it probably didn't make it. Smudge and KittenKat (because I haven't come up with an appropriate name) are following Queen Cat across the street to eat regularly now. Yesteray was pancakes, sirens and Mex food. Yay.

    And that's my week in a nutshell. Here's to a new week!

  2. I'm with you; it was a week. I think I got my average in illustrations cleaned up, but I've lost track.

    The highlight of the week was seeing the armadillo. That still makes me smile. :-)
