Took a day off

Took a day off

I’ve been keeping up pretty well with the daily word count and am up to over 12K, which is higher than yesterday’s total. Today’s is 13,334, so I have a bit left to go to reach it. Mostly I’ve been reading and cooking and doing laundry while mulling over where the story is supposed to go next. I’ve already had a character do something unexpected. For those writers who are planners, this doesn’t happen. Even those who aren’t necessarily planners…

Second test down…

Second test down…

And a happy Father’s day for all the dads I know… including my own, my FIL, and my beloved Hubby! As the title states, the Girl took the second of her College Board tests – the ACT – yesterday. She said it wasn’t quite as hard as the SAT and she was glad she didn’t have to write an essay. Hubby had Friday and Saturday off as his regular days off, and spent much of yesterday digging post holes for…

Fudge, fudge, fudge and more fudge!

Fudge, fudge, fudge and more fudge!

Yummy, yummy, yummy! Been making fudge pretty much all week. Delicious stuff, not healthy for me, but we’re nearly swimming in it. Plain, walnut, pecan and mint. Made it for the teachers and neighbors. Made it for Hubby’s all week work party (he didn’t bring any of the fudge back — for which I was happy, happy!!). He brought home some Harry and David chocolate cherries,gifts from a customer. Never had them before… wow! Delicious! Too easy to eat too…

I hope I can recover my brain here.

I hope I can recover my brain here.

Had my brainstorming session with the gals; it was okay. Created a new timeline for IR:TNP. Posted chapter 35 because C reviewed, then Frankie did. Amanda did, too, but it was a bit of siliness… Don’t know what I’m gonna do with that girl!   The Girl’s gallery has been updated at last. Hubby is sleeping; gotta make dinner for the crew tonight so he doesn’t have to.   The transcript will wait until tomorrow and so will the birthday…

Peanut spread and sugar free grape jam taste weird together

Peanut spread and sugar free grape jam taste weird together

I came up with this title after I made my lunch. They really do taste strange together. And it’s definitely the jam. Strawberry or blackberry taste better than grape.   Hubby’s supposed to have an 8-hour day, and when he gets home, I’ll finish the grocery shopping that I started yesterday. Spend $200 and didn’t get a whole lot to eat. But that will change when I hit Aldi’s today. I’ll drop the menfolk off at the barber’s, or they…

I’ve had my toffee for the day, that’s for sure!

I’ve had my toffee for the day, that’s for sure!

Without even trying this has been a high carb day. Breakfast was fine; I had the usual stuff. But I did have some of that delicious toffee around lunchtime, and had leftover ravioli (high carbs) for lunch itself. Then for supper, six pieces of French toast with sugar-free syrup on it. The FT was made with my low-carb bread, yeah, but add a glass of milk in there and I had some pretty hefty carbohydrates! Shouldn’t have pigged out like…

Can I scream now?

Can I scream now?

I have been booted offline by MSN several times this evening, causing me to change the access numbers twice so far. I only have two more after this one, so things had better stay stable for a bit. My connections speed isn’t up to snuff either. I have to shake my head and wonder what’s going on with MSN these days. Hubby spoiled me tonight. Bought me a jamocha shake from Arby’s. To offset it, he also bought me a…

So much for a restful night

So much for a restful night

Woke up around 2:45 and could not get back to sleep. I really should have gotten up and written up the snatch of Jeff/Lou interaction that I had buzzing in my head, but… I didn’t. I  just lay there feeling more and more amorous until finally I woke the hubby around 4:30. Not that we did anything… he was too pooped. I’ve got to let him get a good nap this afternoon, probably during the IR:TNP brainstorming session. And when he…
