Sunday Update – April 9, 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.

It's Easter Sunday and we're at the beach house, so I'm going to keep this short. Not a lot happened this week so it shouldn't be a long update anyway. Happy Easter to all who celebrate! We have spring break this entire week.

This past week, my husband was gone Tuesday through Friday, so we were on our own at home. I juggled some jazz band and track for the kids. The cleaning ladies came on Wednesday, and I had my first in-person French class! French class was fun. It's just me and two other people who are invested in learning French. The teacher is a native French person and she immersed us right away. I'm happy with it so far! Just gotta do my homework. :)

We drove down to the beach house yesterday. The drive was easy and traffic was light. The house is great. The pool outside is destroyed, but we're not going to talk about that now because it makes me depressed (long story). I'm really looking forward to retiring here someday. We have ideas of the renovations we want to do on this place over the next 8-10 years and then we'll move here permanently and probably split our time between here and South Carolina. Yes, we have plans.

In writing news, I started on the next Kimura Sisters book and I'm on chapter 3 of that. I set it aside this weekend to work on making new covers for my Miso Cozy Mysteries series under my pen name. I just moved all of my books over into Kindle Unlimited for that pen name too. The covers I'm making with Midjourney, the AI image tool. Every image I make, though, needs a lot of work, so I'm touching things up in Pixelmator, making changes and adding in titles and what not. It's a lot of fun! I hope to be done with the covers today and then I'll update them on the website and Amazon maybe tomorrow.

Spring is looking mighty fabulous already!

Made it out for a brief walk yesterday after driving here. The tide was out so I walked on the beach and then walked back home via the road.

Lulu waiting for Daddy to come home. She loves sleeping on pillows on the couch, wherever she is. And here she is begging me to veggie chips. I give her the green ones. Lol.

And finally, my French language textbook and activity book. I already knew plenty and could understand quite a bit in the first lesson. I'm excited to learn more!

That's it for this week everyone! Stay safe and healthy.
