Monday Catch-up

coffee fae I’m late posting today. I normally set up a post the day/night before. Sunday was mostly internet free but better late than never, right? Right! So here, have a little coffee fae to make your morning better.

Weekend…OKRWA went well. I think people enjoyed my class on worldbuilding and in the morning session on setting up an spreadsheet to track income and expenses for tax purposes, I learned something about Excel I didn’t know. So yay! I also got an email saying my proposal for a panel at RWA Nationals was accepted so I’ll be a presenter in July. That marks off another item on my bucket list! Double YAY!

Lawyer guy has the flu and and is really sick. Boo on that! If he’s not better today, he’d better get his sick @$$ to the doctor. Just sayin’.

I got caught up on Season 3 of LOST GIRL (SyFy) and watched the premier of Season 4. I do love me some Dyson, the fae werewolf in the show. Bo, the fae succubus and lead character, had some big changes in her life last season. She went through the “dawning”, which is like the fae version of puberty/vision quest/survival test. A new character, a Valkyrie was introduced, and the mystery of Bo’s father was interwoven with the season and that’s the big carry-over thread to the new season.

Reading. Yes. My RITA books for judging arrived. Can’t talk about them, but I have 8 to read in the next month. At the same time, the library pinged me to say that Jayne Ann Krentz’s RIVER ROAD was ready for digital checkout. Reading it now. I’m withholding judgement until I’ve finished. This is her first “straight” romantic suspense in awhile.

That was my weekend. What did y’all do?

  1. Ack. I hope LG feels better soon. :hugs: for you both because being sick sucks and being the wife of a sick husband sucks, too.

    Here? Wrote a lot, read a lot, did some pathmaking in the woods, watched TV. The usual.

      What’s sad is he had the flu shot and this is his second round of having it REALLY bad! I didn’t have the shot and I haven’t been sick. Go figure. I’m exciting at how much you’re writing lately! I need to get back in the groove. I’m a bad writer. 😦

    I read pretty much all weekend and watched football. Now this week, I have to get back to actually posting reviews to my blog. Yep I’ve been reading like a crazy woman but haven’t posted a review to my blog since the first of the month.

      I’m excited that Peyton and the Broncos won. Well, Peyton. Broncos just happen to be the team he’s playing for. 😆 I’m trying to be really good about rating books as I read them. I just wish my dumb Goodreads widget thingy would update! I’ve read way more than 4 books this year. 😦

  3. Oh man, hate that LG is sick. If he’s anything like the Hubster, then I really feel bad for you! Men are terrible patients!
    I don’t know how you do the presenting. Kudos on it! I did a small one, back when RWI was still around, and I was shaking like a leaf the whole time.
    Good luck with all the judging!!

      Years of debating and drama in high school and college, plus I’ve presented at other professional groups. I’m just excited about being a presenter at Nationals. It’ll be fun because LG is presenting with me.

      And actually, he’s a decent patient. He sleeps on the couch and I check on him every couple of hours to make sure he’s still breathing. He doesn’t want to be bothered or hovered over so we’re good. 😀

      Judging is good. But I need to get the library book read first since the Metro system only has so many ebook copies available–like way fewer than paper copies so I always feel “pressure” to get the digital checkouts read in a hurry.

Got something to say?
