Sunday Update - Week 47

Well, it was another week.  We're in the home stretch now.  Unfortunately, I'm sitting over here saying pretty much the same thing I said last year: I hope next year will be better.  

Anyway...  I finished that round of edit notes on Friday.   The book is now standing at just over 101K and 347 pages.  Yesterday I started in making the next set of edit notes.  I didn't get far.  The beginning prelude to the book is irritating me.  I may just chuck it and start with Chapter One.  It's only like two pages and I'm not certain it's necessary.  

I need to get working on uploading Unequal to D2D... you know, since it dropped out of KU last month.  Most everything else will drop out this month, leaving two to drop out in January.  Blink and the Model Curse series books are now officially 'published' to everything but Hoopla.  I still haven't figured out a game plan for getting sales at these new outlets, though.  Derp.

Reading's been slow.  I'm 15 books away from completing my 2021 goal.  I don't see that happening.  Especially since my Kindle is now tied up with 'edit round 2'.  

No baking this week, but I did make a vat of chili and vat of turkey soup.

On the activity front, I was sawing logs and holding logs while Hubs sawed them for 4 days.  And on one day, we worked on another outside project.  Weight holding steady at 180.4, but I haven't weighed myself since Tuesday.

One day, I put up my Christmas tree and some of the decor.  I went a little light this year.  But it still looks nice: 

I need to do Christmas cards.  I bought a new box of really cute cards.  They'll get out sometime this week, after I buy stamps.  LOL

I cut my hair again.  Exciting stuff in my life, eh?

We still haven't seen any eagles, but I did hear one yesterday morning.  I know they're in the area because other people have seen them around, but not me yet.  =o\

And I managed to finish that big project for the office.  Yay.

That's about it for me.  What were you up to last week?


  1. It was a week, wasn't it? Yay on finishing this round of edits! You'll get the book nailed. I've go 5 books comiing off KU this month, spread out. One comes off Thursday. Of course, D2D is going to holiday schedule so no telling when they'll go live other places but they'll still be up at Amazon, not that my sales or pages read are very good there, hence the reason for going wide. I should take a day and just update all the Dececember books so they're ready to go. We'll see.

    Anyway, also good on activity and decorating. I got lights changed and put up outside. That's done. That's about as active as I got.

    College football was a mixed bag this weekend. Siren test was a bust because there was a glitch in the system but we still got family time and wonderful Mexican food.

    I napped through about half of my current book. It hasn't been that long since I read it so that's okay. I'm not going back to play catch up. I'm 15 books away from meeting my GR goal, too, but I should make it. We'll see.

    Not much else went on last week or the weekend. I started laundry at 6 a.m. today. That's about as productive as I'll get in all likelihood.

    Here's to a good week for us all!

  2. Yay for finishing the first round of edit notes! (Hmm. I'm starting to sound like one of Seanan McGuire's Aeslin mice. Not so bad, I guess; I love that series.)

    I'm soooo not ready for Christmas yet, not emotionally. But I think I have all the presents bought.

    LOL! I cut my hair this week, too.

    I got a reasonable bit of work done, but nothing to brag about. I did win a 1835 Lady's Book on eBay for under $30, and I'm thrilled about that. :-)

    Wishing you a wonderful week!
