Weekend Roundup

I took the weekend off from actively writing which, but I must get back to it today after the gym. But I enjoyed some time off! I did some shopping, including buying 2 bathing suits and a pair of board shorts.  Now let’s talk about the concept of board shorts. They are supposed to cover the flaws. Okay, not for the kids, but you know, for ME. The problem with that?


So I tried them on and told Wizard, “I better look for longer ones.”

“No those are perfect.  Keep them. ”


“I don’t lie to  you, do I?”

“No, and I appreciate it.” I  kept the board shorts. What I didn’t say was that while Wizard doesn’t lie, he’s very forgiving of my flaws.  And I’m grateful for that, so I shut up and decided to be happy.

I spent some time out back which was nice!  And I worked on doing invitations for the graduation pool party for Middle Son and his cousin who have both earning their B.As.. Due to everyone’s crazy schedules the party won’t be until the end of June but I’m so looking forward to it. We’re very proud of both kids! Plus my sister-in-law is so easy to work with, so this party is a cakewalk.  I’m debating if I should send Bailey Dog his own invitation :-)

    I swear you have to put together a book of Witch and Wizard stories :). You two must be a riot to go out with.

    It’s so nice to hear that you really did take the weekend off and spend time on yourself. You needed and deserved it.

    Have a great time at the gym. I think you’re one of the only people that I can say that to and they will enjoy themselves (like I do working out).

    Bailey dog would love his own invitation to the party especially if it came with treat ;). Congratulations to Middle son on his BA.

    We didn’t do anything out of the ordinary this weekend. Just normal stuff.

    Have a wonderful day :)!

    Congratulations on actually taking an off-writing weekend. You’ve earned it. Now back to work. :whipcrack:


    Have fun planning and throwing the graduation party. Way to go, MS! Bailey should get an invitation shaped dog biscuit with yummy writing. Just sayin’.

    I spent a lot of time rewriting this weekend – got one whole chapter rewritten into the notebook. Now I have to transfer it into the computer. Other than that? Not much of anything. Watched deer. Took walks. Vegged out. Saw this cute movie called The Big Year. It’s a comedy about birding – so I’m like their target market. LOL

    There was a weekend? 8-O

    Okay. Joking. A little. I vegged. After the storms and flooding, our normal routine was disrupted. I watched a lot of softball–YAY!–along with some baseball. And I read. A lot! We did a little housecleaning and a tiny bit of yard work to pick up very minor storm damage. I’m slow getting around this morning and procrastinating everything I should be doing like crazy.

    Congrats to Middle and Cuz! Wiz is a very wise man and he knows you so trust the dude. *nods* Have a great week, witches!

    See ?!? I’m back again, aren’t I a good girl ?!? Hee Hee, good for you going with the shorter shorts, you’re a braver witch than I. I may turn 27 (every year) but I’m starting to feel uncomfortable in some of my ‘smaller’ clothes ;)

    Viki, all this stuff Wiz and I do seems so normal to me. Believe me, we’re often boring.

    I do like working out, but I don’t lift like you do anymore. It just ends up causing me problems so I focus on what I enjoy–cardio. That’s where I can just let go for awhile. You know what it’s like when the endorphin’s kick in and we get in the zone.

    Hope you at least relaxed on your ordinary weekend :-)

    B.E., great on getting your chapter rewritten! I love your notebook method–it doesn’t work for me but I get what yo’re doing. I can’t write pages long hand, but I almost always plot longhand on scraps of paper. Everyone’s process is different.

    You’re really enjoying your new place with the up close view of nature! I see the pics when I get a chance to check my FB feed.

    Silver, we were watching the storm/tornado drama in your parts on TV. Crazy. It has to stop! Glad you’re okay, and got a chance to relax.

    Good luck getting everything cleaned up!

    Ban, Yay! You came back! You’re a very good girl!

    I don’t wear short shorts anymore, this is board shorts that go in the pool. I wanted longer ones, but haven’t found them. Wizard is like, it’s a bathing suit, you look fine, relax.

    You’re young! Wear what makes you happy.

    I’m not that young – I’ve been turning 27 more years than I care to admit ;)
    And I agree about the notebook method, I am envious of those that can just write out longhand. I make WAY too many adjustments for that to work for me but like you, I do write out plot points or minor scenes on scraps !

    Ban, so you’re 27+ :-) It’s a good age, LOL!

    I love hearing everyone’s process!
