Sunday Update – January 17, 2021


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.


So, first of all, it’s my birthday tomorrow, and I’m turning 45! So yay! Happy birthday to me! My plan is to spend the day reading, knitting, and eating after doing a Peloton ride and workout in the morning.

Second piece of news, I am switching servers at my website host to a virtual private server this week. I have been on the same shared webhosting plan for over 20 years, and it was time to finally bite the bullet and go for the better plan. I will have more drive space, my more transfer data, and most of all, more PHP memory. There are lots of sites I want to build that use plugins that require more PHP memory and it was just becoming a pain to not have access to more memory. So, this site may be down or a little jacked up Tuesday and maybe Wednesday too. Hopefully I can post to the blog on Thursday. I am a little nervous about this! All of my email needs to be moved over too. But the migration team at my host is top-notch and I’m going to put my faith in them to get it done.

Otherwise, it was a usual week around here. The kids did their school, and I worked on edits to AN UNFORGIVING DESERT. Edits are almost complete! I should be done with them sometime today. I am also reading the novella submissions to the anthology that I’m co-editing, which makes a nice change of pace from my other work.

I did a lot of workouts this week including lots of core classes, pilates, yoga, and strength. I rode the Peloton Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. Saturday was the first time I’ve ever done a 60 minute class! It was great! I love that I can see and feel my endurance and strength building with every ride.

Lulu continues to amaze us with the positions she’ll sleep in.

Speaking of pets, here’s a photo of me as a baby trying to make friends with Bozo the cat. Now, you must know that Bozo had an evil streak. He loved to attack my parents, but he was a cool cat with me. (Yes, he was named after the clown.) (Yes, your eyes do not deceive you, he is outside on a leash.)

This week was all about editing.

I got my Pelton Century Club t-shirt! You get this shirt from Peloton for free when you complete 100 classes in any of their specialties (Bike, Strength, Yoga, whatever). I got an email from them when I completed my 100 rides, I filled out a form for the t-shirt, and it arrived within a week!

Speaking of rides, I did my first ever 60 minute ride on Saturday. I’m wearing bandanas when I ride now to keep the sweat out of my eyes and ears (and AirPods). I have bandanas in a million colors. Time to put them to use.

We made tacos with Impossible Burger meat and they were the closest to Taco Bell tacos I’ve ever had. So good. I didn’t want it to end!

Lulu and me, prior to our walk.

A funny photo I found in my Prime Photos memories today… This is my oldest child, 12 years ago, in her box of playtime stuff. Lol. Yes, I would put her in the box to keep her occupied while I tried to do stuff. Trust me, she loved it.

And cheers to another week finished, complete with another impeachment.

Have a fantastic week everyone! Stay safe and stay healthy.
