Marvelous Monday Greetings!

Hello, and welcome to another Wonderful, Awesome Monday! I'm filling in for Haldoor today - and whether you worked it or had some time to yourself, I do hope the weekend treated you well.

I can't complain: I got some rest, ran a few miles, did some cooking. I also made time to enjoy the latest SPN and a couple of episodes of Fringe for my annual winter re-watch. I always look forward to visiting with that crazy little family over the winter - watching them drop acid, fight the bad guys, and take on the worlds together warms a cold season for me.

I didn't write, but I did make some bingo cards - it was fun to open up Photoshop and play with colors a bit. This week, I'm going to finish a ficlet that's about half written, and start on some bingo prompts. :) The weekend challenge also popped a bunny I hope to make something of, too. That's probably about it on the creative side for me.

What's on your list? Need a prompt? Today, apparently, is one of the biggest 'call out sick' days of the year (or so 'they' say) - and it's being dubbed "SuperSick Monday." Ha. I don't watch football, but if you do perhaps you know a person or two who indulged in the old "I can't make it in today"??? Imagine, as they say, your OTP. :)

You were busy. I just got stuck working....ugh

The Super Bowl was lame. The Rams finally showed up at the tail end of the third quarter and just couldn't get it done.

I'm doing good words wise. Sitting over 1k at the moment. Have the day off, so hopefully that number will rise.

I did get some awesome news yesterday. I'm going to be a great aunt again come August!

Have a good week.

I saw the final score while blipping around the web last night - one of the lowest scores ever, wow! Yeah, it's like a pitchers' duel, I guess - lots of fanning, not much excitement. Boo.

Congrats on the words - and big congrats on the news! That's awesome. :} Love being an aunt - baby time, but then you get to give them back. ;}

I'm attempting to combine one 4sqre bingo card with Sunday's prompt...but my dog keeps insisting on being in my lap ;) But I've gotten 500 words thus far, so thats more than I've done in a few days.

Do making bingo cards count as graphics?

Otherwise I've done very little to start off February. My excuse was setting up the new computer system...which is 95% raring to go. I'll be able to write on it now though; the rest is fluffing.

On the downside...my daughter woke me up at 2 to tell me its raining in the kitchen. Already have a roofer due out to take a look because I was guessing what I was seeing in the kitchen was either from leakage or from the way my house is settling. Still...now I've been up since 2, the dog needs a checkup to verify he's healing right after his surgery...and its a work day. So... happy Monday to me :/

Back to words...what I can make of them in the next hour.

Ugh. That is *not* a good Monday, sorry you woke up to that. I've had it rain in my bathroom twice when shower pipes burst in the apartments above me. :{ At least I didn't have to deal with the repairs myself - I feel for you there, hope it's resolved soon. Fingers crossed for your pupper, too.

Yes, the bingo cards are getting counted! So say I. Lol. Although, I'll probably just count them as four, and not a literal count of each card. Feels about fair to me.

I actually have today off. I'm not indulging in SuperSick Monday (although, being from St Louis, the two teams in the Super Bowl did make me ill), but I'm currently on the last day of vacation out of town. I have gotten out and done some touristy things here in Springfield, Illinois, but for the most part, it's just been a weekend of indulging in things- reading, fanfic writing, watching movies- that I start to feel guilty if I spend too much time on them at home. I'm about a third of the way toward my writing goal for the month, so I'm pleased with that, and I haven't even touched the Bingo prompts yet, so there's more progress to be made.

Good luck with the fics you are writing!
Feb. 4th, 2019 03:57 pm (UTC)
That sounds pretty awesome to me! I know I find it hard to fully indulge at home - getting away from all the reminders of the 'to do' list is definitely a nice treat. :) Enjoy.

And congrats on getting ahead on your words- only the 4th and you're way out in front of it!

I finished a book this weekend. :D Got some writing done and spent most of my free time chasing the kitten out of my herbs. She discovered she can get to the Aerogarden now and likes to spend her time sniffing the basil and playing with the thyme. *sigh*

Happy to hear you had such a laid back weekend! Those are really the best kind. I've only seen a handful of episodes of Fringe, but it's one I need to go and watch from the beginning, I think.

As for this week, I hope to finish another book or two and work on my bingo.
Feb. 4th, 2019 05:52 pm (UTC)
Sounds like a good plan to me! I'm hopeful for words, as my knitting interest feels like it's taking a slight dip for the moment - which is not a bad thing, actually. Balance. Hard to find balance, lol.

Oh, the kitten must love that- their little noses are so much stronger than ours, it must smell irresistible. :}

The best part of the Super Bowl was the new Avengers promo. And that was like the first commercial break!

I had a couple fics due for exchanges the past few days, so I got those done, and I've even started on a bingo card. Every time we have bingo, I start a fic and never finish, so I'm hoping to change that pattern this time!

Good luck on your ficlet and bingo and weekend challenge prompt!
Feb. 4th, 2019 05:55 pm (UTC)
Thank you! And I hope the Bingo Mojo sticks around this time.

I'll have to hit YouTube and check out the new promo if it's posted.

Someone here at work was saying that most of the commercials were even only so-so. Seems to be the theme of the event this year! Funny how that can happen, sometimes.
Feb. 4th, 2019 06:38 pm (UTC)
I have watched it sooooo many times now!
Feb. 4th, 2019 05:43 pm (UTC)
We had two people plan to be out today, and there was sincerely, no traffic getting in to work today!

Feb. 4th, 2019 05:56 pm (UTC)
That's pretty funny - I don't personally get how it can still be such a big THING, but ....that's me.

Happy, happy Monday - here's to the week ahead! :}

I didn't even realise it WAS Superbowl, since it obviously isn't a thing here. In fact when I read your post, I was wondering what happened yesterday to make it be such a big sick day! But now I'm caught up on comments, although I still know nothing about Superbowl! ;-P

And it's already Wednesday for me, which shows how well I would have done trying to post this on Monday. Thank you for taking it on!

I hadn't even thought about counting the Bingo cards, but it does make sense - I spent quite a lot of time on mine, so I'm going to count them too!

I haven't grabbed a Bingo card at this point, but I'm plodding on with my WIP, which is going really well - I finally feel like I know what's supposed to be happening (10k in!!!) so I feel like it may actually get finished soon. I suppose I could grab a bingo card and try to include the prompts in it, but I'm not sure how easily that will work.
Feb. 6th, 2019 09:14 pm (UTC)
Oh, yes, I'd say making cards counts. :) And I'm glad your WIP is starting to fall into place - still have hope for mine, too.
