This past week was a busy one. Finishing up Christmas shopping, wrapping presents, dropping off presents and cookies, working, and a drop-in. Since we’ll be traveling off and on over the next couple weeks, I’ve been trying to plan ahead for meals when we’re here to cut down on grocery store visits. It’s another fried turkey for our Christmas dinner!
Son #1 came home and is now with us for a couple weeks. He (a Panthers fan) and hubby (a Steelers fan) went to the game in Charlotte yesterday. So it was a good day for hubby. Our son’s cat, Sora, is also here. If you remember, she and Bond aren’t in each other’s friend zones. They’ve gotten to the point where they at least try to ignore each other and coexist. It even works every now and then. But then someone gives a look, a paw is raised… you get the idea.
I FINALLY started book #5. It’s been rolling around in my head for over two years, I’ve talked to the characters, made notes upon notes. But I could never actually sit down and write. I have no idea why – fear, imposter syndrome, etc. This past weekend with hubby and Son #1 out of town, I sat down and forced myself to begin. And now the ideas are flowing. I was stumped on how to connect a couple of things until Son #2 came over yesterday to wrap gifts. He discussed his world-building for Dungeons and Dragons (he’s the Dungeon Master of his group), and I talked about my roadblock. He gave me an excellent idea that I can adapt for the book #5.
I’ll be sporadic with blog visits and comments this week due to traveling. Hope you all finish your holiday shopping and find some peace among the chaos!
