Sunday Update – May 8, 2022

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.

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms and those celebrating today! To everyone else, I hope you have a great Sunday!

This was a fairly uneventful week, and I'm happy with that. I didn't do much besides the usual family obligations. There was also knitting, watching TV, and a bit of writing. Plus, I updated the blog with a Book Chat and sent out my newsletter.

I'm really trying to not overwork myself like I have for the past decade. I spent close to ten years working 70 hours a week and every weekend too thinking that if I worked hard that I would be a successful author entrepreneur. A few years ago, before my broken leg and the pandemic, I figured that my lack of success was because I didn't have a break-out hit so I overworked myself to get the Flyght Series done and out there. Lots of overworking!

The pandemic, though, taught me differently about my career. Now I'm taking it easy and trying to enjoy life instead of working all the time. It will mean fewer books per year, but I'm okay with that.

In other news, this week I'm hoping to wash and block the shawl I finished and post about it here so stay tuned!

It was Star Wars Day this week and I celebrated with Leia and watched Rogue One again. I love that movie. I think it's my favorite of the side movies.

My current knit is really coming along! I love this yarn and the easy pattern. I'm already planning my next blanket with the same yarn because I have so much of it.

I've been drinking a lot less and only having a cocktail on Fridays and Saturdays. So I enjoyed a Empress Gin Martini on Friday. I love the purple Empress Gin.

Lulu is awaiting her share of the popcorn. Always.

PS) I'm experimenting with 5:4 ratio images since these are now accepted on Instagram. I had been doing square and 16:9, but 5:4 seems to be the sweet spot between those two.

Have a great week everyone! Stay safe and healthy.
