Sunday Update – March 8, 2020

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

I SURVIVED GIRL SCOUT CAMP WEEKEND! Yes, y'all. I'm back from camping this weekend in the backwoods of New York State. I'm showered and I've napped, and now I'm catching up on everything I've missed.

Both of my girls are Girl Scouts, and I promised each of them I would take them to the camp weekend when they were in 4th grade. This was my younger child's turn! Hint, hint… I hate camping of any kind, but I promised, and I tend to keep my promises, so off we went! We had a much better time than when I took my older daughter 3 years ago. The last time, it was 8ºF outside and everyone was too cold to do anything. This time it was warmer, and I was better prepared for the rock hard beds. I actually slept on Saturday night, which is a miracle. We did soap and lip balm making, candle making, archery, low ropes courses, lots of walking, campfire smores, and the kids even put on a talent show. So fun!

I spent the entire week up to Friday worrying about going on this trip. I still did stuff, like drop my kid off for softball practice, tennis, and pottery. But in the back of my mind, I was making lists and getting ready for the weekend.

Now that I'm home, I have lots to do. I'm still writing Flyght 6 (got another 1500 words in at the camp on my Neo) and I'm almost done with my Flyght 5 edits too. Plus, there's normal life stuff this week. I expect to be busy for at least the next 10 days.

Let's get to the photos!

I made these candles in the candle making class, and I think I did a pretty good job for never having made them before! Hoping to put them in a candle holder this week and try them out.

There was archery and pen decorating…

The girls all had a great time!

Look at her spotted belly!

Heading out for a walk…

Enjoying the nice weather.

Too hot or too cold.

And I opened this coffee my husband bought for me on a recent trip to Seattle. It was delicious.

Hope you have a great week everyone!
