Sunday Update – March 13, 2016

I am having one of those whiplash weeks. The kind where everything is going along swimmingly and then I get sideswiped by a Mac truck (metaphorically speaking). My neck comes out bent the wrong way and I was blinking into the bright lights saying “What happened?” over and over again. Yep. That was my week. Coming this next week on the blog? A post on how faith can be so easily lost or misplaced, and how my ability to make decisions on a moment's notice will ultimately save me from myself.

This was a week I should have written into my planner, but somehow after Tuesday, I completely forgot! It was a beautiful week of weather. I worked out at home on Monday so I could watch the last episode of Downton Abby (cried buckets), walked in the park both Tuesday and Wednesday, Thursday I went to the gym, and Friday I shopped at Whole Foods, made it to Panera to hang out with my buddy Amy, and then got called back to home by the school nurse for my youngest. Thankfully I took her to the doctor right away and the doctor determined that she was fine. Phew! I won't go into details as it involves female body parts. Lol.

All week had been easy though I could feel that something was brewing in the publishing world then I got hit hard with it on Friday and Saturday. I have sent email to Amazon and I'll see if they write me back. I haven't heard a peep about my email to them, which either means they're going to ignore me or they sent my correspondence up the chain of command. We'll see. Like I said, I'll compose a blog post for Wednesday or Thursday. I want to give them time to respond first.

What else happened this week?

Proofreading while KP makes dinner. I'm feeling under the weather and exhausted. Hoping I feel better tomorrow! #365days #ig2016 #dailyphoto #authorsofinstagram #bookstagram #booklover #booknerd #cozymystery #cozymysteries #japan

Something knocked me on my butt last Sunday and I was running a fever, so I sat and proofread all day. Thankfully it was the weekend and my husband could take care of things.

Reading outside in the sun! Hello, early spring! Nice to see you! #365days #ig2016 #dailyphoto #happiness

Proofreading in the park!! #authorsofinstagram #bookstagram #cozymystery #cozymysteries

I got lots of outdoor reading time in! It was lovely to be in the sun. I can't wait for summer!

Had an icy treat with my youngest today! This is red raspberry and pink grapefruit Italian ice. Delicious! #365days #dailyphoto #ig2016

Took my youngest out for ice cream (Italian ice for me!) on a day when her big sister was at a birthday party.

Taking some time for myself. I should knit too. #ig2016 #dailyphoto #365days #coloringbook #coloringforadults #coloringbookforadults

Took the time to color and think…

Saturday night #knitting and drinking. Working on the same project I started 1.5 years ago. Really.

And even some time to knit! Yes, I'm still working on this project I've been working on for a year and a half. Persistence will pay off, I'm sure of it!

So, like I said, a blog post later this week on publishing shake-ups and then a new Teaser Tuesday for THE DAYDREAMER DETECTIVE!
