Well, I thought I’d do a Book Chat, but it turns out that when I’m doing revisions, I don’t have much bandwidth for anything else! I’ll be saving up my books for whenever I have room in my schedule to write a post up.

On Monday this week, I dealt with plumbing issues in the Pajonas house. I called in a plumber to fix three major things and get my house back in working order. The kids had a half day and it rained, plus we had a playdate and gymnastics in the evening. It was a busy day.

Tuesday was for work. I started revisions on Hikoboshi 2 and set up a schedule for working every day.

Wednesday, I worked at home while the cleaning ladies were here then the kids had tennis lessons in the afternoon. Thursday, I ran errands in the morning between revisions, and then in the evening, my oldest kid did some community service with her Girl Scouts troop.

On Friday, I went to Panera with my writing buddy, Amy, after getting my hair cut. Then I napped before getting the kids from school because I knew we’d spend the whole early evening at LensCrafters, which we did. My youngest got her eyes checked, and she has eye strain from too much screen time, and I thought I was being good with limiting her! Gah. We obviously need more limits and more breaks so we got her a pair of blue-light blocking glasses and now we set timers for spending time at the computer or iPad. The oldest got a new pair of glasses too and I asked for the blue-light blocking filter for them as well. They should take about a week to come in. I got behind on revisions on Friday.

Saturday, I tried to concentrate on revisions, and I did, but it wasn’t enough to make up for being behind on Friday. I took some time off from the computer to make apple crisp though and have family movie night.

Today, Sunday, I worked on revisions most of the day but was careful not too overdo it. I don’t want to get sick from being on the computer all the time. It’s not good for me! So I took some time off to knit and watch Project Runway.

What else happened this week?

I set up a revisions schedule which I hope to (mostly) stick to. I’m already behind but only because several of the earlier chapters are really long. I may be able to catch up later this week with shorter chapters.

Some cool lawn mushrooms from up the block.

I enjoyed some awesome rum punch today.

I’m seeing a lot of my keyboard this week as I do revisions.

LensCrafters is always an epic trip. Glad we only do it once per year.

And there’s nothing like apple crisp baking on a Saturday afternoon. Yum!

Obviously, I’ll be very busy with revisions this week but I also plan to drop by and update you all on changes to the Daydreamer Detective covers! I hope to get those done later this week as well as putting up the pre-order for the fourth book on Amazon.

Have a great week!

    Rum punch! *nods approvingly* and apple crisp sounds good too! I agree with Laura- those are some epic mushrooms! Wow.

    Good luck with the revisions!

    • Thank you! The revisions are finally done, phew! Which is why I have time to reply to comments now. 🙂 Definitely having apple crisp again this weekend!

  • Sounds like another busy week for you! I don’t usually like pictures of mushrooms (idk, they freak me out?), but that one is pretty cool!

    • The mushrooms around here were epic for a few weeks, not sure why. Maybe it’s a fall thing??

  • Nice you got those plumbing issues fixed. I am so excited about the second Hikoboshi book, I have a few books on my to-read list first, but I am reading it as soon as I can.

    That apple crisp looks great! Yum! I haven’t made that in a while. Those mushrooms look cool, I always like seeing them spring up around this time of the year.

    • I’m totally ready to make another apple crisp. The first one went by too quickly!
