Sunday Update – March 19, 2023

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.

Not a lot happened this week! Which is always both good and bad. My husband was supposed to be away for a few days but ended up staying home because of the weather. We had several rainy/snowy days in a row, and then it got warm and everything melted or went away. It got so dry here last night that they issued a fire warning, which is always strange for here.

This week I finally finished writing the first draft of A Surprise Favor! I'm so happy that it's done, and I can move on to the editing phase which is my favorite part of writing. I'll get started on it tomorrow. This weekend I'm working on writing up some blog posts for my blog and generating images in Midjourney for them and for my side art project I've slowly been working on. I'm also sitting around and watching junk TV because I deserve it. Lol.

In other news, we went to a high school concert on Thursday. My oldest is in concert band, all the choruses, and sings in the jazz band. So we got to see her perform several times! She is definitely very musical. This week she turns 16!! SIXTEEN. I can't believe it. I remember her as a baby so clearly. Sigh. She leaves for Disney World on her birthday on Wednesday very early in the AM. She's going with school to perform. They'll be marching on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom and she'll also be singing with the chorus in Disney Springs.

Just a note that after I'm done with edits on A Surprise Favor, I'm going to write a quick short story for the blog. I have this concept I'm working on that should be fun. I'm planning a series of them, and they will all be on my blog until I have enough to publish them as an ebook. And then I start working on the next Kimura Sisters novella. That one has a deadline, so I need to get cracking on it!

In AI news, this was quite the week! GPT-4 came out and Midjourney v5 as well. I started using a text word processor app called Lex for writing blog posts. My Facebook group was very lively with talk about all the new apps. It's been a lot of fun.

Lots of Lulu this week! Snuggling together on the couch. Lulu vs. 5 deer! And Lulu in the backseat of my car, waiting for my oldest to return from an errand into Walgreens.

We went out for Indian again last Sunday. It was the day of the time change so I went to bed after lunch and slept for two hours. Lol. Time Change + Indian Food = Coma.

Had some nice days for walking this week! I got in lots of podcasts.

PS) It looks like the template on my blog updated this week and I have some fixes to do. Hopefully I can get that done today.

And that's it for this week! Stay safe and healthy.
