Sunday Update - Week 47

"Ack!  It's Sunday.  It's Sunday?  Yeah, it's Sunday. Well, crap." - my brain at 5:45am this morning.  Which is why I'm writing this now.

I got about 200 words out Friday.  Not good words, I'm sure, and I definitely don't like them.  But they're words.  I'll most likely kill them sometime today.  Mostly, I'm reading Le Morte d'Arthur by Thomas Mallory as research and trying to inspire myself to write.  Since I did write Friday, it must be working.  I'm also spending a lot of time thinking about writing.

I read a couple awesome books last week before I started reading LMdA.  Yay.

In baking news, yesterday I got a wild hair and decided to make blondies.  Cuz I'm out of baker's cocoa to make brownies.  I added chocolate chips to the recipe I found.  Umm... the chips sank to the bottom.  And they're not really great otherwise.  Oh, I'll eat them, but I won't be making them again.  Later this week, I'll be making a pumpkin cheesecake.

Also yesterday, I went to Wallyworld (where, no, I didn't remember baker's cocoa... hence, blondies).  Aside from them moving everything around, it wasn't a bad shopping trip.  Thank goodness I didn't need toilet paper, though.  They only had two kinds left and those were the kinds I hate, and there was piddlin' few of those.  Paper towels were also sparse.  Not sure what the hell is going on this time, but there it is.

Anyway, I did get what I went there for - chiefly, a turkey.  I ended up with a 17 pounder.  It was the cheapest I could get for a reasonable price per pound.  I could've gotten a 22 pounder for about the same price, but come on.  We're gonna have enough leftovers with a 17lb already.  Sheesh.  There was a little turkey for $1 less, but I am not paying that much per pound for a damn turkey.  Leftovers are good thing.  Right?  Right.

As for activity, umm, no.  But I made myself step on the scale.  Weight: 180.6.  So no real gains despite the inactivity.  Hubs did goad me into taking a walk with him on Friday which was good because it rained all day yesterday.  Other than that, I am a toad.

Well, I think that's about it for me this week.  How was your week? 


  1. Hoarding is happening because numbers are spiking and people are freaked that there'll be another lockdown. Which might happend come January. 🤬

    I don't know what size turkey I need. Waiting to hear if the kids are coming here for sandwiches and pie. 🥪

    I'm within sight of The End. Today or tomorrow. 🤞

    It turned cold. Had to turn the heater back on so now my nose is dripping and I've got a cough from the post-nasal drip and sneezes. Ugh. 🤧

    Not much else going on in my world. Hang in there. The words will come. I have faith in you! 🥰

  2. Blondies with a chocolate chip crust? It sounds interesting!

    I'm in the mood to make oatmeal/pumpkin squares, but I forgot to get pumpkin. Maybe next week.

    I'm getting more work done than usual, in spite of an extra day with Dad. I finally finished one source, and am starting in on the next. Yay!
