Well, not for another 6 minutes.
I now have 4 hats for sale on Etsy, which is probably too many. But I like making them and it delays the time when I should try making another purse. Which involves measuring and cutting and sewing, all things not nearly as natural to me as crochet.
I’ve averaged 3 workouts a week so far. I missed a week last month due to migraines and work schedules, but doing 3 plus a weekend jaunt is at least a step in the right direction. Buddy wants to do weight lifting on the weekends, which I’m all for (except for the going-to-the-gym part, necessary but yuck). Turns out, weight lifting helps burn fat better than cardio. Makes sense, but puts the lie to half a dozen years of Army thinking.
I haven’t been writing, or thinking of writing this week. I’m gonna knuckle down to some research, though. When writing a historical-ish story, one needs to know a little bit more about the time period than what one gleans from Jane Austen novels and period films. Also, when creating a semi-alternate universe, one needs to build the roots of the present in a fictional past that is plausible. So in order to write about super humans in 1800’s England, I have to look back to other formative time periods, like the Protestant Reformation. And I also need to brush up on the Napoleonic Wars (most of what I know comes from Alexandre Dumas and some fantasy novels).
This is actually good news because I will finally get to use something I learned in college. RESEARCH.
Bollocks. Now it’s Friday.
