Sunday Update – December 25, 2016

A quick update today since it's Christmas and I need to get into the shower so we can celebrate with family today!

It was a busy week around here, again, and mainly because I was working on two projects at once. This week I finished off my Daydreamer Detective novella! I'm very excited to give it away to newsletter subscribers later on in the week. If you're not a newsletter subscriber and want this 2.5 novella in the Miso Cozy Mysteries series, you should join my newsletter.

I also wrote on my scifi book most of the week too. So far this whole working on two projects at once thing is going well! I actually enjoy it and it gives me a break on days when I feel scattered. I think I'm going to keep it up in 2017.

Let's skip right to the photos and I'll be back during the week with a few posts! I need to look back on 2016, announce my novella, and update about Japan again. :)

I'm going to let the photos speak for the week…

We started off the week with yummy salmon hot pot. I substituted in local veggies this time since I've made this recipe enough times to understand it.

The park was cold and icy this week but I still walked in it twice.

We got snow last weekend and the snowman lasted most of the week.

I had a lunch date with my husband in the middle of the week. It was nice to take some time off.

I used my Instapot for the first time to make hard-boiled eggs. Later in the week, I used it to make chili.

I returned to the gym finally! I did very little in the way of weights and my arm still smarts. :( I'm hoping to go back this coming week though.

My proofs for all my Nogiku Books came and now they're all available on Amazon with the new covers! I love them!

And we continued our Christmas Eve tradition this year by decorating cookies!

Merry Christmas to all those that celebrate! I'll see you around here this coming week. :)

  1. Merry Christmas to you and your family! I am looking forward to the Daydreamer Detective novella! Glad to hear the working on two projects is working out so far.

    I don’t like salmon, but the rest of that hot pot looks good! That’s neat you took some time off for a lunch date, I hope the food was yummy! The Nogiku books all look so pretty all lined up like that. I also baked some cookies this week, but no decorated ones. Have a great week!

    1. Omg, do I give off the impression that I’m good about cooking? Lol. I HATE COOKING. Like hate it. I struggle to get through making meals. This may be why I document them though, because I can’t believe I actually did it. If I didn’t have to feed other people, I would literally eat five things over and over and then eat out the rest of the time. Lol.

      1. That’s hysterical—how do your meals always look so yummy then? And how do you motivate yourself to make all these different recipes? I hate cooking, and I totally rely on Trader Joe’s meals that you just heat up. I’m a horrible wife and mom when it comes to cooking! When I do cook, I have like five or six things that I make over and over so we’re all sick of them. Sigh.

        1. I definitely have a repertoire of things I cook often. Twice per week I do a meal of a “meat”, starch, and green which is a formula I have for a normal meal. Then there’s always a stir fry meal with rice and a stew or soup of some kind. Then it’s fish burgers and fries or frozen pizza. I rotate through them all to get variety. My kids, though, eat the same four things over and over and I make a separate meal for them. It sucks but that was a fight I no longer wanted to fight years ago.
