I did something this weekend I haven’t done in a SUPER long time – I visited my local library. It’s brand new and has only been open a short while.
It was so cool to walk through the doors – they even have a coffee shop inside! I perused the shelves and actually checked out a book! I discovered a new-to-me author. It’s a fantasy book called Once Upon An Autumn Eve and I’m so far thoroughly enjoying it. I might have to find the books for my keeper shelf. It’s a series of four books.
Saturday morning was RWA and it was a good meeting, although I wasn’t feel well. I think I must have got some bad tuna at Subway Friday. I’ve had an upset stomach since.
I was mostly a lazy bum Saturday afternoon and even took a nap in front of the TV. It was kinda nice, actually.
Sunday morning, the cat woke me up at 6:30 am. Oof. I finally got up at around 7, got dressed and went grocery shopping. Insane, huh? I got home early though – AND stayed within budget and got everything I’m going to make for the next two weeks. This menu thing is really working for me. Even though I have moments where I still don’t know what I’m going to make. 😀
I pretty much stayed home Sunday becuase I still wasn’t feeling all the great and it was yucky hot outside. I worked on MAGIC a lot. Did lots of research. I finally figured out their dress. Instead of it being some non-descript clothing, I really sat down and figured out what my time period for their clothing is. It was fun. I have Post-It notes all over my Everyday Life in the Middle Ages book as well as my Costume 1066-1990s book. Lots of notes scratched on paper throughout the books as well.
Watched Sarah Brightman on PBS. I love her. Her voice is unbelieveable. Taped it.
Dug out my Sarah Brightman Harem CD to listen to in the car because I had an urge. Can’t wait to hear that again. I sorely miss my MP3 player in my car. As soon as my computer is paid for, I’m getting myself another CD/MP3 player for the car. I know just the one I want too – it has a USB port. Cool, huh?
Got the kiddo back around 7:30 and let him watch cartoons and eat Cheeze-Its. Got him settled down for bed and started reading #14 of the Magic Tree House books.
Even as I write this, I still can’t stop thinking about my Magic book. I feel very connected to it and the characters this time around, which is a great sign to me. That means I’m going to have a spectacular rewrite. At least, that’s what I’m hoping for. I did manage to complete the second draft of chapter two and I’m pretty happy with it. I’ve sent it off to my trusty readers for their thoughts on it.
This week is VBS and then I have a wedding on Friday. It’s going to be a busy one I can already tell!
