Back to Couponing and Crocheting and Publishing

Saturday afternoon I spent a chunk of time clipping coupons - for myself, my sister, and my daughters.  For the first time in nearly six weeks, I made a grocery list based on my apps and coupons. Ken went grocery shopping early on Sunday as he usually does.  He overspent by a little but I … Continue reading Back to Couponing and Crocheting and Publishing

Quiet and Calm Today?

Wedding present done!  Wedding was beautiful and fun.  Now today, I'm going to be a bum.  I have to go back to work tomorrow.  I'm feeling a bit worn out so today is a day of rest. Tomorrow I have to call to find out more information on hitches.  Then I have to get quotes … Continue reading Quiet and Calm Today?

Do I Gotta?

Last night I finished the manuscript I was working on.  I wrote about 15,000 words yesterday.  It was a good day. After I finished I was tired and rung out (like I normally get after a manuscript) and opted for a little tv.  I watched an episode of NCIS LA and Person of Interest.  I … Continue reading Do I Gotta?

Reading for Pleasure

With being in school for the last couple of years, I've not done a lot of reading for pleasure.  Mostly it was text books.  Prior to going back to school, I was doing a lot of book reviews.  This led me to getting tired of reading as I was usually under a deadline and reading … Continue reading Reading for Pleasure

A View from the Recliner

It is difficult to be limited in what I can physically do.  However, I'm trying to be productive with my time.  Research and marketing have been top of my list while I'm laid up. To this end, I spent a chunk of yesterday researching new age bookstores for Moon Affirmations and emailing a number of … Continue reading A View from the Recliner
