Sunday Update – July 30, 2017

Another week has come and gone and it was fairly quiet around the blog. I thought about posting a Book Chat this past week, but just never got around to it. I was busy busy busy at home all week. Some days I was doing a million things. Others I was trying not to. Lol

On Monday, it was finally back to normal life. Now that all the parties for my youngest were done, I could concentrate on my own stuff. I stayed home and chilled. Worked on Daydreamer 4. Walked. The usual.

On Tuesday, I worked my 2nd of three shifts at the CSA in the afternoon. This was an easy week there because the woman I was working with was very industrious and insisted on doing most everything. Fine by me! I spent most of the afternoon baking up muffins. I made three dozen muffins, chocolate chocolate-chip zucchini muffins and peanut butter zucchini muffins. They're now in the freezer and will make great additions to lunches in the fall.

On Wednesday, I had a chiropractor appointment and worked on writing. It was on this day that I crossed the 35k mark in Daydreamer 4!

On Thursday, I totally forgot to take a photo because the day didn't go as planned. It was busy. I dropped the kids off at camp, walked 3 miles, showered, went to Whole Foods, grocery shopped, came home and got right to cooking. I made oven-roasted salsa and pasta sauce which took almost two hours. I finished with it and was ready to sit down and eat a very late lunch when my oldest called to come home from camp because she had a headache that was making her nauseous. It threw everything off.

On Friday, we were finally able to go to the pool after camp for the first time all week. The weather here has been unseasonably cool and it hasn't made me happy. I much prefer it when it's hot outside. So it was nice to go to the pool in the afternoon.

On Saturday, we had a busy morning with walking and gym and getting the youngest off to a birthday party. I cleaned up the house, read, and wrote. We spent the evening in and watched SPLASH as a family.

Writing has been going well, I think. I've been breaking my sessions of writing up into 500 word chunks and that seems to be working for me. I'm almost to the mid-point of Daydreamer 4 and almost to the end of July. Starting next week in August, I scale back to 500 words per day on Daydreamer 4 and start my editing of the next Hikoboshi book. It was good concentrating on Daydreamer 4 for a while. It gave me the kick-start I needed to really get the story going. But it's time to concentrate on sci-fi again!

What else happened this week?

Sometimes an evening on the couch gets musical.

A good haul from the CSA this week!

Passed a big milestone on Daydreamer 4!

I saw this man sitting and fishing and I thought, “That's the life.” Lol.

These were like tiny little fudgey brownies. YUM.

Cheers to the end of the week!!

Coming up this week: August begins so we'll have a Goals post for the month. I hope to post a Book Chat during the second week of August since I have a lot of books for it!

  1. Sounds like you had a busy week with lots of things going on. I had a dinner that took me two hours last weekend and after standing in the kitchen for so long, you’re really ready to sit down.

    I am happy with the slightly cooler weather we’re having here. I hope it gets a bit warmer there as I know how much you enjoy the sun!

    I am glad to hear your writing on daydreamer 4 is going well and I like your idea of breaking up the work in shorter chunks.

    I hope you get a book chat done this week, it’s always fun to see what you read. Have a great week!
