With nine days off, you would think I got a lot accomplished. I did when it comes to spending time with my girls but off my to-do list? Not so much.
I got 70 stars made but I need to get 30 more done. I’d like to get them done sooner rather than later. But it wasn’t this past weekend. I guess I’ll take them to work with me so I can work on them during my lunch hour.
I still have a shawl to do and I have an idea on how I want to do it but I have to see how I think it will work out. Part of me is itching to get these two projects off my list. I know I have two more right on the heels of it which are both started.
The good thing is I got edits on the computer for the next Wayfarer book but I didn’t get the second Wild Magic book edited. That stays in my bag to work on.
Oh and if that isn’t enough, the girls brought home this fun, addicting game called Ticket to Ride – which is about building trains on all sorts of maps. We found out there’s a version of it I can have on my phone. This is a mistake but it’s on my phone. Oh my goodness – I can’t stop playing. Saturday night I stayed up till 1 in the morning playing it and I didn’t notice time passing. I’m going to have to be firm with myself because I have too many other things to do.
On Facebook I’ve been seeing snippets from JD Robb’s books. It made me want to read them. I got through the first three in no time. I’ve got a Dragon book I’m reading too. I like the premise of the dragon books (and who doesn’t love dragons?) but there is a touch too much repetition for me. There are 64 chapters in the book I’m reading but they are short chapters. I’m sort of interested but it doesn’t hold my attention. I’ll get through it eventually and I’m hoping there’s a tipping point where I get enthralled in the story to the point where I can’t put it down but I’m not holding my breath. On the JD Robb books, I’m not sure whether I’m going to reread the whole series (she has a new one coming put in September) or not but I thoroughly enjoyed the ones I’ve read so far. I’m also reading a review book. I need to struggle my way through the end of it and write the review. Then I have two or three more to read for reviews. I hope they are better than I expect.
