Weekend Roundup

It was a nice quiet weekend. Writing, kind of, sort of, happened, but I’m more pleased have solved a plot problem that has bugged me forever. I’m still tweaking around the reunion scene, but it’s as it’s a huge turning point so it has to make sense.

I meant to tell you all that when I went to the courthouse for jury duty, I went through my first metal detector with my brand new titanium plate in my spine, and it didn’t set it off. That was pretty cool. I’d been told it wouldn’t, but it was nice to try it and see.

Anyway, Saturday rained, then Sunday was crisp and sunny with clouds, a perfect day for being outside. Maggie and I went on our longest walk yet since my surgery. I’m guessing we covered about almost two miles, going in the field and winding through the neighborhood. And I can work at the computer for a few hours a day with breaks. The book isn’t any easier, but I’m enjoying the challenge, while not letting myself reach a seriously stressed stage. Even Wizard commented that I’m doing well at walking away, and relaxing. He’s even started to ease up on the protectiveness just a tad.

So that was my weekend. This week we’re expecting rain Monday through Thursday, which is good news for our severe drought conditions that caused so many devastating fires last year. We’ll be watchful for flooding and mudslides, but so far, we’ve been okay. I’m keeping the other burn areas that are more prone to mudslides in my thoughts.

How was your weekend?

    Hey, solving a plot problem is big. Now you can move ahead. Go you!

    I remember the first time I went through a metal detector after I got my titanium. It went off and I was all like ‘it’s the metal in my leg’ and she was all like ‘it can’t be’. It was my belt buckle. Hehe.

    Yay for being able to take longer walks and to sit for longer at the computer. Yay for reduced stress. And yay for Wizard.

    Every time I see rain in your area, I cringe about the chance of mudslides. :fingers crossed and positive thoughts:

    Here the weekend was bland. We got a lot of rain, but no snow or ice. I don’t think I left the house once. Did a lot of reading and watching TV. Some cleaning. A little writing, which is better than nothing. Here’s to more writing in the new week!

    B.E., that’s a great story about the metal detector, and sounds like something I’d do.

    It’s raining hard, and we have sheriffs posted around the area. Hopefully all will be well.

    Well you guys need the rain too, so that’s good, right? I ended up spending my day on other stuff, but will get some writing done and hope you do too!

    Yay on everything, Jen! The plot fix is totally awesome but I’m happier for the long walk, rain, less stress, and time spent at the keyboard. Woot!

    I’m late getting around. I finished up revision a novella from the old Kindle Worlds that I got the rights back to, rather than republishing it with all the stuff dealing with the author. I changed some stuff, and since the Blood Moon played a party I hyped up the Super Wolf Blood Moon that’s coming next week. I should get it uploaded tomorrow. I want one more reread through for typos, etc.

    It was cold all weekend, which was fine. Got inside stuff done and finally made myself sit down to fix the above. I also dipped my toe into somewhat serious advertising. We’ll see what happens. I so totally suck at marketing.

    I did some reading, did some listening, and watche LIVE PD. Typical weekend for me. :lol:

    Here’s to a good week for all of us!

    No internet most of the time. Our router is bad. Hope to be back up and running by Wednesday post.

    Happy to hear you had a longer walk with Maggie.

    Keeping you in my prayers with rain.

    Have a wonderful day.
