Sunday Update – September 27, 2015

I'm sitting here on the couch this Sunday morning ignoring the Jehovah's witnesses at the front door, as one does on Sunday mornings. It was quite a long week here. My husband was gone all week in Salt Lake City for week and I was taking care of everything at home by myself. Thankfully, nothing went wrong and we survived, but I'm exhausted this weekend. All I want to do is sleep, read, or sleep. But I'm forcing myself to get some work done and maybe once I shower I'll be more motivated.

This week I concentrated on seasonal chores and organization. I did things like change the bedsheets on the kids' beds from the lighter summer blankets to the warmer winter ones, I made toasted overnight oats, and I cleaned out old clothes from drawers around the house. I also worked on writing and organizing more of REVEALED.

Then I watched two free webinars: one on writing children's books because I've had ideas for children's books, and another on the software I use everyday, Scrivener. After giving it a bunch of thought, I decided to invest in the Scrivener training. Since it's software I use every day and it's how I run my business, I really want to be a Pro user at it. I'm already excited by some of the online video tutorials! My goal is to learn enough to make my process of writing seamless and easy. Right now, I get by with Scrivener (and I've been using it for 4 years now!), but I want to do even more. I'm super excited about that.

My kids had Wednesday off from school because of Yom Kippur, and it was nice to sleep in and take it easy that day. I even took them to an indoor play place for a while to burn off energy. They had a great time and we really enjoyed the day.

What else happened this week…

My walk this morning was cool and calm. I'll miss the park when it's covered in snow. #dailyphoto #ig2015 #365days

My local park is looking really gorgeous lately.

Morning! First bowl of toasted overnight oats for the season, warmed up in the microwave with pecans and butter. Yum! #ig2015 #365days #dailyphoto

These toasted overnight oats are soooooooo good. I really love them. And they make either a great breakfast or, in a smaller amount, a tasty second breakfast after a trip to the gym.

One more night with KP out of town means one more night of writing on the couch with a drink and a critical eye on this chapter. #amwriting #dailyphoto #365days #ig2015

I tried to get as much work done as possible even though I felt like procrastinating. Why do I always slow down as I get to the end of writing a book? You would think I'd barrel into the end at high speed, but I usually crawl up to it. I'm so close. I think I can finish REVEALED today if I try hard enough. And I finally found an image I can use for the cover! Finally.

And that's about it! I plan to update twice this week. I have a Top Ten Tuesdays list and a Book Chat planned, probably Tuesday and Thursday. We'll see if I come up with any other posts!

  1. Oh pumpkins! That’s good to hear nothgin went wrogn while your husband was away this week. That tutorial for Scrivenger sounds like it will be worth it! Especially as you use it so much.

    That local park looks gorgeous! I am not a big fan of oats, I do like them in some cookies, but beside that not really. My sister loves eating oats for breakfast. I always eat cocopops for breakfast and have been doing so for years now. I love breakfast, I always take time to sit down with a book and enjoy my cocopops and cup of earl grey tea

    That’s good to hear Revealed is almost done. Good luck with the last part! And have a great week!

    1. Everything was going well and then my daughter broke her arm today. I’m still waiting on her to set in a cast and sent home from the hospital. So writing and everything else is now put on hold.

      1. I am so sorry to hear about your daughter breaking her arm! I hope she’s okay! I can understand that puts everything else on hold, so you can be there for her. Good luck!
