Well, it seems 2023 is here to stay. We’ve managed to survive the first week+. I suppose things are looking up. We can certainly hope so. Optimism. That’s the key, right?
I didn’t do much the first week of this new year. Call it post-holiday hangover. Or lazyness, Both work. Or not. Because I didn’t do much work. Oh, I did clear some junk out. There’s a whole lot more to clear and get rid of in various ways. I also didn’t write much. So much for my idea of writing a little, clearing a little, writing some more each day. Best laid plans and all that. We’ll see if I do better this week.
Sometimes, something really witty or profound pops into my head. One-liners. And I think to myself, “Myself, we could use this in the blog or something. Remember it.” I never do. I should write it down but I always tell myself, “Myself, don’t worry. You’ll remember it.” 🙄
Saturday was busy. And not. Only and Stormy ran a 5K practice run for the “Run to Remember” marathon coming in April, which commoroates the OKC Bombing. Then she had siren test. LG was out of town and his siren was covered so I didn’t have to. We met for our usual First Saturday lunch at our fave TexMex restaurant. Y\ummers. Then I got a nap before LG and I headed out for Stormy’s late soccer game. They won! Yay! Yesteray was the Kids anniversary and we got together for pumpkin and apple pies at Uncle Fix-It and Aunt Hooey’s house for a late Christmas exchange. It was nice.
“On Patrol Live” is back in production. Yay! Yes, I am easily entertained. And I’m down to the last two books in my Kate Daniels World relisten. There’s a new novella coming out this spring but no word on when/if it will release in audio. I hope so. Reading is getting harder and yes, I am making arrangements to get my eyes fixed.
That’s pretty much my update. Wallyworld today. Yippee. 🙄 And then I have every intention of getting new words written. Plus, I have to find a recipe for Tuesday’s blog. Any requests? What’s up in your world?
ROFL, I love your coffee meme. And yes, I’m all for the power of positive thinking. Yay. Don’t worry about being lazy the first week of the year. You’re just idling your engine in preparation for the race. ;o) Yeah, we all tell ourselves we’ll write stuff down and then don’t. It’s the curse of being a writer. Yay for Only and Stormy and pie with family. YAY for OPL! And for reading. And for getting your eyes fixed. :hugs:
You can have my easy beef bourgignon recipe, if you want. I think even Hannah and Sade could do it – except they might think it’s a waste of wine. LOL
Not much of note going on around here. You read my update and the only thing that happened since is I finished Kill Shot by Vince Flynn. I love Vince. (And I’m more than a little mad that he went and died… damn cancer… so no more books from him.) Yesterday, I made a vat of ham & bean soup, and a pumpkin cheesecake. Big excitement. LOL
I miss ham and beans. 😦 I’m the only one around here who will eat them. Sorta like tuna casserole. LOL Annie’s cooking tomorrow and I’m not sure the two kids would appreciate beef bourgignon. 😉 I’ll figure something out today. I had a bad night so I’m putting of WW until tomorrow so I have lots of time to dig around. Hang in there this week!
