Today is my husband's birthday! Happy birthday, KP! He's a rockin' 42 years old, and I'm about join him in the 40s in about six weeks. Where is the time going? I swear that 2015 just started a few weeks ago, and here we are about to go into 2016. It's hard to believe.
Anyway, it was quite a busy but relaxing week. I worked hard Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday to get my first cozy mystery done and in the books, and I achieved my goal! The week was short because it was Thanksgiving here in the States. The kids had a half day on Wednesday, and I had to volunteer at the school library on Tuesday. My exercising was cut a little this week as we had to accommodate for family gatherings and I really just wanted to sit and read. And I did! I read a whole book between Friday and Saturday, which felt great. More on that in a Book Chat this week.
I started brainstorming for Book 2 of my cozy mystery series and wrote out beats for the first six scenes of the book. I have a pretty good idea about the murder and I already had ideas for the personal and romantic storylines, so I feel like I'm ready to go with this one! I wonder if I'll burn out on the story after this book? I'm not sure. Something about writing the first book was so freeing. I hope I feel the same way with the second one.
What else happened this week?
We're using up the very last of our CSA veggies! The season is over and now we're heading into the winter of no farm fresh local veggies. Very sad times.
I have decided that I'm just not capable of walking outside when it's below 35ºF. This was one very frosty morning and the temp was around 31ºF and it was just too cold for me. Sigh.
We started off Thanksgiving right with vegan yeasted waffles. Yeasted waffles are the absolute best and these ones turned out perfect!
I love love love these new Jamberry wraps! This is Happy Go Lucky and it's the perfect combination of color and pattern.
When I'm between writing books, I obsessively clean and reorganize. This is the activity center for the kids and it was an absolute mess before I got ahold of it. Used paper and coloring books everywhere. Dirt from the plant in the corner stuck to the wall. A MESS! I recycled all the used paper and cleaned and organized it. Now they have stuff they can do and it no longer looks like a disaster. Later, I tackled our Tupperware area! I was on a mad streak!
And today is KP's birthday, as I said above, so we got a babysitter and went out last night. First we had all-you-can-eat lobster buffet and then saw Spectre. It was pretty good, but I'm looking forward to another James Bond reboot. Hopefully the next one will move on.
Okay, everyone! Have a great day and week! I'll be back with a Book Chat and possibly other posts too.
