So, another week and weekend has passed. January is coming to a close. I keep thinking I should have accomplished a lot this month but as I look back, my mind goes blank. Ah well. In a look back at last week, there are a few things that stand out.
First, Lawyer Guy’s old iPhone 5 finally died, for all intents and purposes. He now has an iPhone 8 and during the switchover, he changed up our internet and cell plans, saving us some money each month, plus discovered that U-Verse TV is finally available in our neighborhood! If I had a cheerleader emoji, I would enter it here. I’m too lazy to go look for one. Anyway, I can’t wait for the new TV source, even it means relearning favorite channel numbers.
I did get some words written on MONTANA MOON though mostly snippets under 1K at a time. I need to up the effort. Big time. I also figured out the story line for UNDER THE ASSASSIN’S MOON, which will be my 5th entry in Susan Stoker’s Kindle World. The heroine is a spy agency assassin, the hero a Delta Force guy, and there’s a little Indian girl in Brazil who brings them together. Remember Siri from ASSASSIN’S MOON?
Reading has been a lesson in not much exciting. I had contest books, a new book I’d been eagerly awaiting, and a heretofore un-listened to series by a favorite author. Nothing bad. No DNFs in the bunch but nothing that made me jump up and down to recommend and give 5 stars to. I want something to catch my imagination.
Pitcher/catcher is just around the corner and with the new U-Verse package, I’ll get to watch all the spring training games that the Cardinals televise so yay! I didn’t get last season’s Game of Thrones watched but that’s okay. I can pick it up off Amazon or On Demand when I’m in the mood. Thing is, I haven’t really been in the mood for TV lately. Like my reading, nothing has lit my imagination on fire. Blerg.
I’ve enjoyed teaching the on-line class in magic realism this month. Wednesday is the last day and I’ll miss the research, and the class comments and interaction.
Did I mention that 1099s are coming in? Yeah…depressing. Moving on.
So, goals this week: Clean 1 room. Write 1600 words a day. Try a new recipe (to get us out of an eating rut). Learn how to work the new TV technology. And I think that list just exploded my brain! Maybe I’ll just find a good book and read instead! 😉 What’s on your to-do list?
