Weekend, #AmWriting, and #AmWatching

I mentioned last Monday we’d have both sons home for Thanksgiving, and it was wonderful. Son #1 got hubby (a longtime Pittsburgh fan) an early Christmas present of tickets to the Steelers/Bengals slaughter game yesterday, so the four of us spent the weekend in Cincinnati.

Son #2 and I aren’t really sports fans (he refers to any type of sport as sportsball), so we took a food tour in the downtown area Sunday afternoon. He’s a big foodie and found us a fantastic food tour in NYC a few years ago – one of the best we’ve ever been on – and always looks for tours in cities we visit. This one was filled with fascinating historical facts about Cincinnati and some tantalizing ethnic foods (how have I made it this long without steamed buns?). If you’re ever in the area, we highly recommend it. Shoutout to our tour guide, Jackie – request her if you can.

Thanks to the authors who suggested free writing for my WIP last week to uncover the story hiding among all my ideas and notes taken over the past couple years. I’m taking your advice and giving it a shot later this week. I’ll post an update on the process next Monday.

Son #1 and I went to see Ghostbusters: Afterlife last week and it received a thumbs up from both of us. We liked that it focused more on the young actors (who did an outstanding job) than the adults, and the storyline was a logical extension of the original movies. It came with a few surprises and bittersweet moments, but no spoilers here. If you were a fan of the original movies, I think you’ll enjoy this one. Have a great week!

    1. It really was, Jan – having both sons home made it perfect. He’s been a foodie from a young age, and even went to a kid’s chef camp when he was around nine-years-old. Always had an interest in food.


    1. I’m hoping I will also, Jill. I’ve done something like that when I’ve interviewed my characters in earlier books. I just let them spew whatever was on their minds, and I learned a lot about them.


    1. It was a fabulous Thanksgiving, John – hope yours was also. I’ve never been to Fort Mitchell, but I’m always up for good ribs – especially if they’re dry rub. I’ll have to ask a friend of mine about that restaurant. I don’t think there’s one in KY he hasn’t visited, lol.

  1. What a great way to spend Thanksgiving with your two sons home, Teri. It worked out beautifully that your one son watched sports with your hubby and the other son went on a good tour with you.

    I had my daughter’s family here for Thanksgiving and had wonderful time with them, loved to see the granddaughters.
