Sunday Update – May 17, 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.

What a week! I feel like this was the longest week yet of the quarantine. And now that it's nice outside, people are flocking to the parks and people's homes for parties. So, guess what? If you hated quarantine before, you're gonna REALLY hate it when it goes on for months and half of your loved ones are in the hospital! Can you tell I'm annoyed? Because I really am. Like REALLY. I'm looking across the street at my neighbors who currently have over their entire extended family for a party. Grrrrr.

My week started with a 24-hour stint in Facebook Jail. Yes, I was sent to Facebook Jail for saying… are you ready? “Men are the worst” to some guy who said that women breastfeeding were like Jabba the Hut. I reported his comment after he reported mine, and Facebook decided that he was in the right, and my comment was hate speech. Lololololol. I can't stop laughing over that one. So, good on Facebook for continuing to hold up the fragile male ego who can't even abide looking at a woman breastfeeding. Incidentally, when FB puts you in jail, they stop you from being able to post AT ALL, including to all your pages, so SFR Station and my other pages had no content for 24 hours. Seriously, folks. Welcome to the future.

My week got better from there. I took Lulu to daycare Mon, Wed, and Fri and it was a good routine for us. I got walks in every day. Did a little cooking and baking. Researched new mask patterns. Nothing too dramatic. The kids had their daily school work. I worked on freelance and a few other things.

I finished off STOLEN FLYGHT, too! I got my notes back from my proofreader, entered them all in, made new files, and uploaded them to all the stores. This week, I'll set up the pre-orders for STOLEN FLYGHT on both Google Play and Smashwords, too. Just to have them done.

And now what's next with the writing and writing business? Good question. My current plan is to take off through to June 1, just to do my own stuff, some freelance, and knit, read, and sew. At that point, I plan on picking CRASH LAND ON KURAI and then the rest of the Hikoboshi Series to start reading and planning the last book in that series. I will also be planning out Skylar's series (I already have ideas for this) and another novella length adventure for Vivian set to go into a box set next year. I will also be moving my cozy mysteries over to my pen name and redoing all my branding here and on social media. Lots to do in the coming months!

For Mother's Day last week, we celebrated with caviar and champagne!

I enjoyed a really delicious cauliflower pizza crust pizza this week, loaded up with all the goodies.

We ordered Chinese food last night and my fortune was very profound.

Cheers! One of our favorite activities is to read the ridiculous descriptions on of the wine we choose to drink.

Lulu has been enjoying her downtime.

I've been doing some sewing and working on a new mask design. This one is adjustable and uses a cord made from a t-shirt. Much nicer around the ears.

And finally, I made fresh salsa this week and it was a delicious treat!

Have a great week and stay safe everyone!
