No theme today. Just a big ol’ mess of my thoughts. There’s just some days that thoughts don’t come. Nothing brilliant comes to mind. It’s just a pile of various things that I’m thinking about.
SQUIRREL! (Anybody ever see the movie UP?)
Yeah, squirrel is a good descriptor.
CASTLE: So, what did you think about the Castle season finale? I know most people were so glad that Castle and Beckett finally got together, but a blog post by Jenny B. Jones really said what I couldn’t quite put my finger on. You can read her post HERE, if you so desire. I posted Jenny’s link in Facebook and it got some Castle-watchers talking. If you write romance, you probably feel like I did – that the “getting together” was too rushed. I won’t get into all the nuances here, but Jenny’s post sure made me think!
WRITING: I’m still trying to work through My Book Buddy and get my plot worked out for my new story. It’s slow going, mainly because I’ve been trying to keep up with laundry better, keep my house straighter, keep my kitchen sinks shiny, and the toilets not so gross. Yeah, some things are kind of important that way.
MOTHER’S DAY: My parents and my in-laws are coming over Sunday evening for dinner to celebrate Mother’s Day. My kids…except my daughter, who is in Austin at UT…will be there. And I don’t have to cook! Gotta love that. So I’ve been perusing Pinterest, trying to find some cute, easy craft to do for gifts. What do you think…
I Love You Frame
Family Key Chain
I need something easy that I can make tonight. 🙂 What do you think?
WEIGHT LOSS/GAIN: I almost didn’t go to Weight Watchers last night. I knew I had been bad and had eaten out way more than I should have, and was pretty sure I’d gained a few pounds. I went anyway and was surprised that I gained only 1 pound. So here’s to a new week of eating well.
BLOG VACATION: I’m taking a short hiatus from blogging next week, because I am taking three days vacation and going on a writing retreat with a friend! We are going to her river house about an hour away and staying Monday through Wednesday. No internet! Just writing! I’ve never done this before and I am so incredibly excited!
I’ll be back next Friday sharing about my exciting Writing Adventure at the river house. So have fun next week!
What fun things do you have planned for Mother’s Day?
