Three days off was nice but it makes for an odd start to the week. It’s Tuesday already and I feel like I’m behind but I’m not.
The weekend was busy. Vicki and I did the errands. This included grocery shopping, visit to the butcher, Walmart, Aldis, and Hobby Lobby. We grabbed lunch on the run and took it home. This was all on Saturday. Sunday we spent the morning doing food prep. I repackaged a bunch of stuff for lunches and breakfasts. Monday I made fruit salad and finished the few things we missed on Sunday.
On the writing front, I wrote a little since finishing the last novel. I did get through a paper edit of Wayfarer Evolution and started a paper edit of Wayfarer Resolve. Monday morning I managed to get some publishing done (see previous post).
I figured out what I want to do for goody bags for the event in November. I started crocheting coasters. I have ten done of the hundred I’ll need. Fortunately, it’s a quick pattern. I plan to expand the pattern into a shawl and make one for the gift basket I’ll send in for the raffle.
My neighbor stopped over and wanted some more books. I gave her three more. I hope she enjoys them. She started with Secret Past. She said she’s not a fan of science fiction and most of mine are in that genre so I’ll see whether she continues to read my books.
I’ve got a list of crocheting I want to get done. I still need to upload several patterns to Ravelry. I’m hoping I’ll have time to do that next weekend. My to do list got things crossed off but not nearly as much as I would have liked.
Ken worked on the patio we are putting in. With the temps being over 90, he got some done but it was too hot for that kind of work. Hopefully this next weekend he will be able to get more done. I sat outside for a while but the bugs and the heat drove me back inside.
