Happy New Year, everybody!
I am excited to be starting 2017… New Year, new start.
2016 was supposed to be a year of Retro reading – going back and re-reading childhood favorites. Didn’t happen.
2016 was supposed to be a year of big projects – doing things that I’ve been wanting to do for a while. Didn’t happen.
2016 was supposed to be a year of moving past my medical limitations – getting back into fitness. Didn’t happen.
2016 was instead a year of disappointment, procrastination, loss, and lack of focus. It was really bad. I think John Oliver put it best:
Anyways, after a year of bad starts, it is the Year of the Cock (or Rooster, for the prudish), and time to stroll away from the wreckage and start over…
So here’s to a New Year, great friends, and a memorable journey!
Back again, y’all…
Been a busy summery day indoors. Besides the usual nit and grit of the day, I have gotten Book 3, Chapter 9 written of the epic Five for the Road, watched the documentary The Cartoonist, helped kids with homework (yes, they got to do it in the summer, too!) and just generally got things done on my list.
More will come soon (this page is staying open today – no more procrastinating)! Stay tuned!
Hi all! Sorry I’ve been MIA again… It’s been a cray-cray year so far, and things have gone from one bad thing to another so fast that most times I feel like I can’t keep up…
But I haven’t been lax. I’ve kept doing whatever it is that I do, just a bit slower than usual.
And I have a new project that has been taking up quite a bit of my undivided attention. I’d love for you to take a chance and check it out…
Alot of time has been going into editing this book, so I’d love it to get a little attention.
On another note, it is our local library system’s Summer Reading program, so stay tuned for updates from my reading list – I’m behind on posting my reviews, but not on writing them. Tomorrow I’ll share images and updates on my shelves and reading stack…
Also I’ve been hitting the learning curve hard as I find myself in crash courses about computer updates and such while dealing with a connection issue on the borrowed laptop I use, and have found myself returning to “Ol’ Trusty”, my old heavy-duty Toughbook. I find myself amazed at the issues of Windows 10, and the durability of Windows XP.
Finally, I learned today that I was supposed to have taken a language class. I don’t know when that was, so I’ll find out more tomorrow. I may be opening a new chapter (pun intended) in my reading life! How exciting!
Anyways, just wanted to let you all know I’m still alive and still reading! Stay tuned for tomorrow’s update and be sure to check out the Kickstarter!
Yesterday was a bust, with the little one getting croup and being clingy and needy. I didn’t get anything done. I’d hoped maybe I’d get some reading done, but that was a fail, as well.
So, it was a forced break.
But today, after a doctor’s appointment yesterday, and getting some of my needed errands out of the way early (just in case), I think I can get a bit done today that’s been sitting on my “Finish Me” pile (and tabs)…
Don’t forget about my Coloring Contest from the popular webcomic, Girl Genius.
Stories and books are loved all the world over, and sometimes I get just a little thrill when I get to see one of my favorite stories talking about one of my favorite subjects…
So, since I decided to do some catching up today while the little one is sick and moaning about dying (don’t know where she got that one…), I’ll post the story arc (up to it’s current location) here…
^^This one wasn’t colored in, but if you’re enjoying the story so far, you can print it out and post your colored version in the comments below to win a prize!^^
And don’t forget about the Coloring Contest! Looking forward to seeing everyone’s renditions!
We’ll return to our regularly scheduled posts tomorrow!
