Minding Monday’s Business

The good news is, I got some writing done! I’ve caught up with all the changes and continuity problems, fixed them, smoothed the road ahead–I hope!–and add new words. Back on track. I have 2+ weeks before the end of the month. I don’t know if I will or not, but I’m working toward an end-of-month release, provided I can get Only to get the cover done. Somebody remind me to nudge her.

There was soccer this weekend. Stomry and his teammates played hard but alas, they didn’t score enough goals to overcome the lead their opponents had. This is a “for fun” league designed to give the kids a chance to bond as teammates and learn some about the sport. They are only supposed to practice as a team in the time period before their game starts. Sadly, a couple of the teams have decided to ignore that rule. We overheard parents talking about who was supposed to bring snacks for the next practice. These are 8 year olds. The extra practice shows. I don’t know whether to be sad, mad, aor just resigned.

Today is Wallyworld. I have no choice. I’m out of feral cat kibble and bird sead. And yeah, I need to figure out what I’m going to feed LG and me for dinner this week. The weather can’t make up it’s mind so I never know whether to go for the hot and gooey comfort food or something lighter because it’s warm outside. Do any of you have a go-to meal? I’d plan breakfast-for-dinner again because we both really like that but with the price of eggs? Jiminy!

I really don’t have much else to relay today. I worked. I listened to Ilona Andrews’s The Innkeeper Chronicles–new release is out in the series. I also hit the refresh button on their upcoming release, MAGIC TIDES, hoping it will be available in audio. If not, I’ll get the Kindle version and struggle through reading it. That grinding sound you hear is the gnashing of my teeth. Trust me, I know how expense it is to release an audio version. It’s why none of my self pubs are available–as much as I’d love to release them in audible! But the book is an Amazon #1 New Release and the authors hit the major best-seller lists with most of their books. They make enough to live on. And yes, this is me moaning. Moving on.

On that note, I’m headed to WW as soon as the sun come up. I live a sad and boring life. But hey! The Buffalo Bills won their play-off game yesterday. Wasn’t a fan until the Damar Hamlin deal and now I’d love to see them go all the way. Too bad they and the Bengals are in the same division. It would be cool to see them both in the Super Bowl, but yeah…both are AFC and it doesn’t work that way. Ah, well. How was your weekend? Any plans for the week?

  1. Yay for writing! You go, girl. Yay for Stormy and his team sticking to the rules and playing their best. Screw the other ‘rule-breaking’ teams. Good luck with your Wallyworld trip. One thing about eggs being so much higher than they were ($5.69 here for 18) is that my WW had tons of eggs. :shrug: They’re still cheaper than beef. Speaking of which, my go-to easy meal is burgers and fries. Bummer about the book you want not being on Audible yet.

    The weekend here was pretty boring. I did the WW thing on Saturday. It was too windy to walk the roads, but we wandered around the yard. I need to do that more often – wander the property and gaze at our kingdom. It reminds me of why I’m doing what I’m doing. My big excitement of the weekend was online shopping. I can still find my soap… yay! I ordered 16 bars worth. And then I got a wild hair and bought 2 CDs (both by the band AJR – they amuse me) and a book. The CDs/book will be here next week, but I can listen to the music now on my ‘puter. And the soap will arrive before my last bar runs out.

      Wandering your kingdom is a good thing. 😉 Yay for music and books–a couple of your favorite things. I broke down and ordered 6 cans of Cafe du Monde coffee. They’ll be here today. I kept hoping to find more at WW but while the sticker is there, still an empty spot on the shelf. I think Santa made sure I found those two cans as a Christmas present to us. LOL I’d forgotten how much I love their chicory coffee so now I have a good supply and know I can get a good price, even if it comes from the ‘zon. Yay for soap too! It’s the little things, y’know? Hope you have a good week.

    Spent the weekend getting the books up and running for my one and only client. And taking it easy with that kidney stone. Ugh.
    Read the new Illona release as it was released chapter by chapter and now am looking forward to listening to it too.
    Started Spare on audio. It’s really good!
    And I cooked. Which means I have to clean. I’ll be glad when The Spawn is off her crutches and can help again!!

      You’ve been busy. The new narrator on “Heart” isn’t Rene Raudman but she’s doing an good job so far. I’m about 5 chapters in. I’ll probably buy the Kindle version for the list of characters for reference. Haven’t heard if they plan to put the new Kate Daniels novella out in audio. I’ll be sorely disappointed if they don’t. Yay for a being all set up for your client, cooking, and yeah, Spawn needs to get well soon! Not only so she can help but so she can be comfortable. 😉
