Must do it Monday!

awesome Monday.jpg

Good morning everyone!!!! Or whatever time of day it may be!!!

Oh man, the last 3 weeks since I've checked in... yeah, huh? I am sad, then angry, then encouraged and proud, and then OUTRAGED! Likewise there's been rain, snow, freezing temps and one day it was 76F! Of course the next day it snowed.

And the dog massively has cabin-fever, even if we did go for a walk on the warm day. Big footed drooly dogs with cabin-fever are not as much fun as you might think. Sure there's lots of energy, but there's not a lot of space.

Also, I've gotten completely obsessive about the Great British Baking Show. I have less than a half hour of season 4 left to watch on Netflix and then there will be withdrawal. Have you seen this show? It doesn't make me want to bake. Legitimately I watch them make things and think "That is way too much work for a pastery/bread/cakelet/trifle." Honestly I've never seen a trifle made with ingredients you actually made yourself. It does, however, make me want to eat good desserts. The next restaurant trip might start with dessert first.

BLACK PANTHER WAS AWESOME! Just putting that out there!

8354 words so far for February.

It was a long exhausting week with activity every night from Tuesday to Friday. I did manage to get a little writing posted over the President's Day holiday. I also did 3 icons for the President's Day holiday (here). I wrote off and on, but didn't get anything else posted until yesterday.

I watched a wee bit of the Olympics and on Wednesday night/Thursday morning of last week, I got to see one of the greatest Olympic hockey games as our US women took home the gold medal. I was up until nearly 2 am, but it was so worth it.

Hopefully, the weather will be nice this week so that you're able to get out more and enjoy it.

*fingers crossed for you* YOU GOT THIS!

I've put in a huge amount of editing time the last few weekends...so my count this month is going to be abnormally high.
My apologies if it skews the group numbers ;)
But as I'm pushing towards another goal (of possibly uploading another book for future publication) in addition to the one that's up there now (and ready for pre-order in just a few days!) the process has been devouring all my time.
I need to actually WRITE more words...but I guess that will come.

It will! It will! But still, YAY YOU!!!

Gah, it's only 9 AM here and I'm done. Hahaha. Lots and lots of wind = one very big headache, but not anything that I can't handle, right?

Man, the weather you guys have been getting lately is nuts. My friend in Philly has basically given up on her forecast. Poor Eggs though - he must be going nuts.

As much as I love these cooking competition shows (I'm a bit of a Food Network junkie), there is no way I'd ever put that kind of effort into anything. Hooray for finding something you can kick back with and enjoy.

I AM OVER GOAL! AND I HAVE TWO FICS TO POST! I'm doing well for once. Hah.

That flash challenge has Zayne's name all over it. :D

I survived watching my daughter and my father-in-law skydive on Saturday. I CAN DO ANYTHING NOW.
Feb. 26th, 2018 09:35 pm (UTC)
YOU CAN DO ANYTHING! JEEZE! I don't know that I could have gone with them to view that!


Eggs received a tennis ball of doom. It is roughly the size of a kickball and he cannot pick it up in his mouth. He's been running around the kitchen with it, basically playing soccer, and then barking at it when he tires out. I'll have to try and get a video.

THANK YOU! I wanted to jump with them, but didn't have the money. Next time (because Tay wants to go again, of course!). It was a little nerve wracking though.

Thanks again! I had a rough start to the month, but this last week has been a gold mine.

Now that is hysterical! Nothing makes a dog nuttier than a ball he can't pick up (minus cats and squirrels, I suppose).

Oh GBBO is such fun! Aha, it definitely makes me want to bake- just not their recipes.

I ended up writing 3k for a prompt fic today, that was an exciting surprise. On a wordy note, I can't edit my yearly total. I think it got marked as spam if you could clear that please? :)

I watched them make Trifle from absolute scratch and was all "Dude! Coolwhip and pudding!" But I do want to see some well laminated pastry in person! ;)


I played around for a bit to try and get you unspammed, Your comment wasn't even showing for me to do something with. It might be that commenting on your comment has made it non-editable, but it's there now.
Feb. 27th, 2018 08:25 pm (UTC)
Ahaha- coolwhip and pudding is so good! I have an aunt who always brings chocolate pudding-coolwhip pie to holiday dinners.

Weird, but yeah I can edit it now- thank you!

eta: Well the edit button showed up so I thought it could, but now it's saying someone replied to it which? No one did?? So I'm gonna be deleting that and restarting and fingers crossed it doesn't act up again.

Replying to it (and then deleting the reply) was the only way I could get it to appear. Sorry.
*fingers crossed*
Feb. 28th, 2018 03:48 am (UTC)
OH aha, I completely misread your first comment! Sorry, I thought you meant I had somehow commented on it originally, anyways the new one is working XD

Oh my to your weather... so my weekend challenge was apt at your end too! We have had humidity to die from, heat, rain, strong winds, sunshine, and slightly cooler temps at different times this month (and yes, sometimes all in one day) so I definitely feel for you, though at least ours did not feature snow or extreme cold.

Poor pup! The ball sounds fun! Remus has an old soft-drink bottle he can't get his mouth around, and he chases it around our big bathroom floor for ages, trying to bite it! I hope Eggs gets out of the 'cabin' soon for a longer walk (and I cannot wait until Remmy has his last vaccination so he can take proper walks, rather than just around the little backyard!)

TGBBO is fun! I agree, it sure as heck doesn't make me want to bake!!! More desserts first while out sounds like an awesome plan instead though!

Glad to hear you loved Black Panther - it does seem to be doing well and getting a lot of great reviews! I'll probably wait for it on Netflix or whatever, because superheroes are not really B's thing... I managed to drag him to The Greatest Showman the other day though, which we actually both enjoyed, and that felt like a miracle! ;-)

Remmy is settling in to the new routine, which started in earnest this week with N2D returning to uni, and yesterday was his first half-day at home alone! It went well - he was still so very tired from doggy daycare the day before, I suspect he slept most of his alone time, as he spent a lot of the afternoon sleeping too!

I need to get my A into G tonight and get some bingo banners made, then it will be almost time to count for the month, and I will have a bunch of this month's bingo rewards banners to do as well! And maybe I will get some more words in this weekend, now that most of the dog things are sorted and I can TRY to get my own routine on track!

LOVE YOU! Must email soon, if I can... so much for messaging while at work! HA! We've been pretty busy here so I have barely done anything I shouldn't recently. *sigh* What else is work for?

8047 words. Probably not going to get caught up before the end of the month, but I do want to try to get some more in.
