Week 4 of the 2021 siege. Just when you think it can't possibly get worse, it says 'oh, yeah, watch this'.
Sunday night, I couldn't sleep, so I got back up and worked on editing. I adjusted the first 5 pages so Duke sounds more like himself. Then Monday hit and nothing else got done.
I read one book last week. I picked up ten new paperbacks at the thrift store, though.
In baking news, I made a batch of Oatmeal Raisin cookies, but this time I also added chocolate chips. They're pretty yummy. Then yesterday, I had the urge to bake and a box of yellow cake mix, so I gave Hubs the choice of either yellow cake with white frosting or coffee cake. He chose coffee cake, so I made that. I think I've posted both those recipes, so they won't be here. If you want it and can't find it, let me know.
No activity. No weight change.
I did a lot of running around this past week. The vet Monday. The bank, post office, convenience store, and thrift shop on Tuesday. Then north for smokes Thursday. Then south for groceries and another stop at the vet (Kira's ashes are home now) on Friday. Then northwest to take all her unopened cans of food, etc. to the local shelter yesterday. I probably put about 250 miles on the car last week. Blerg.
One day, Hubs and I sat down and watched Citizen Kane together. Neither of us had ever seen it. (I thought I had, but I hadn't.) I know it's supposed to be some cinematic masterpiece, but meh.
Other than that, I played a lot of poker. I went over 24 million, then lost back down to 23 mil, then came back up then went back down. It was one of those weeks.
The world further descended into madness.
Yesterday, we had some weather fun as storms with rotational winds popped up and appeared to be headed this way. We heard the thunder and saw the warnings, but all we got was the rain. Whew.
Today, I hope to pull my head out and get some work done. We'll see how the day progresses from here.
How did your week go?
