And here we are again...
Despite a firm commitment to working this week, I got nothing done. Well, not nothing. I sat down yesterday to work and managed to edit 3 pages before I let myself get distracted. But hey, three pages is better than nothing. And it's a start. Here's hoping today goes better.
As for marketing, I'm doing it, but I'm not seeing any sales. Fertile Ground is on sale now. Early Grave will go on sale Wednesday.
I finished one book in time for the reading wrap-up and another book last night (which will be on next week's wrap-up.)
In baking news, I made mini-frittatas and coffee cake on Monday. Those are all gone now. I also made a vat of spaghetti and a vat of beef stew this week. I should probably make cookies today. Or applesauce bread. Somethin'.
The big news of the week was the cold and the snow. It got down to negative something and we got about 6 inches of snow. We cheered when the cold snap ended and the furnace shut off for the first time in days. It's blissfully quiet in the house right now - no furnace and no space heaters running in the garage. Later we'll get the drippy noises of the snow melting, which is fine by me.
The deer look good. It's nice to know we helped get them through the worst winter had to throw at us. Arthur, Lear, and Midas all stopped by to eat yesterday - antlerless, but still recognizable. Yay. The birds also are doing well. Mostly. Unfortunately, Hubs did find a dead bird laying next to the car. I suspect it ditched into a car window. Hubs thinks it froze to death. We also have a bedraggled looking wren hopping around on one leg who probably won't make it. I hope that's it for the casualties.
I don't want to think about what the cold might've done to my gardens. :shrug: Time will tell.
Due to the cold and my inherent laziness, I only got one day in where I did anything active. Let's not talk about weight, eh?
Insomnia. What fun, eh? I saw a commercial for a menopause supplement of some kind that said sleeplessness is a menopausal thing. Oh, yay. As if the hot flashes weren't enough of a pain in my ass. On the upside, I'm rarely ever cold at night anymore.
Anyway... It's the start of the last week of February. Two months down, ten to go. Not that I think getting rid of 2021 will do us any more good than ditching 2020 has done so far. =o(
As to not end on a bummer note, the birds are singing, the squirrels are looking fat and fluffy, as are the deer. Spring isn't too far off. New growth. Green stuffs sprouting up. Flowers blooming. Fishing again. Yay.
How are things in your world?
