This weekend went by MUCH too fast.
The current temperature in the ATL is 67 degrees.
Why, that's just lovely!
What's not so lovely is that the temperature is gonna shoot up to 90 degrees today.
Not looking forward to that!
My weekend. Man... I didn't get anything done on Saturday. Just stayed in the bed. I don't know WHAT my problem was on Saturday. I didn't even get up and get dressed, just sort of roamed the house in my house coat. I know my sister had to be looking at me like I was crazy, but of course she didn't say anything, lol.
I made sure to call up The LBeezy and wish her a very happy birthday. I called REAL early, around seven in the morning. That's the time when we all got a little bass in our voices, lol. Woke her up out of a deep sleep with the most busted rendition of Happy Birthday EVER. LOL. She was wide awake after that! I know you gonna get me back for that one, girl!!! I hope you made your birthday a good one!
I have a gift for her. Thought her birthday was later in the month. Shoot. Watch out for that in the mail one day, girl! LOL
I spent much time trying to get into my book club book, J. California Coopers Life is Short but Wide.
Now I absolutely LOVE J.California Coopers' short stories, but I am not a big fan of her novels. Don't get me wrong, it is interesting, but for the subject matter (a tale of the lives of 2 sisters and their families from the Great Depression to the early 80's), isn't lighting my fire. Ya'll know how much I love some Celie type craziness, lol, but I just feel it would have been better in a short story format.
With that said, I clocked about 200 pages this weekend, and I am almost finish. Halfway through, I must admit that it became very interesting, and is turning out to be a pretty good read.
I think I'm just so enamored by her short story storytelling skills that a novel is a bit hard to take in the storytelling way she likes to do.
Besides that, that is all I pretty much got done. More progress was made on Sunday, as I did a little grocery shopping and renewing of a prescription for some of my meds. I managed to get some chores done on Sunday. A pretty quiet weekend indeed. Sort of glad for that, as I have stuff planned for the next couple of weekends.
Serenity Special Potatoes. I made a new dish, courtesy of one of my favorite Chickenheads, Serenity, lol. She gave me her recipe for roasted potatoes and carrots. She was a bit concerned about me leaving out the carrots (I hate baked carrots), but I worked it out and added some mushrooms.
What do you think, Serenity? It came out pretty good! I added the coriander like you said. That really set it off. I'ma need you to hook up a cookbook, gal!
Writing. I actually got some writing done last night. Close to 1500 words on a one of my current stories. I am happy about that because I haven't been writing much lately. I've been working on some things with my beloved writing partner (I lost a scene from what I needed to give you; I am revamping that, Man!), but not my own stuff. I am much more interested in what Terry and I are working on. But I have to have some balance.
I have a summer writing goal plan due to Serenity today. Hopefully that Oldgirl will keep me in line concerning it.
So that's all for my weekend. Very slow, very relaxing. I am glad of that!
I'm still holding to posting every day of the month in June. (It is driving me NUTS). We are at the halfway point. 15 more posts to go!!! GLORY. lol.
Serenity has given me some difficuly Food-for-Thought topics that are making my stomach hurt. Thanks a lot gal. You're number one. Really.
I hope to crack into a couple of those this week. I don't know. She is giving me a hard time about it. So we will just have to suck it up and post. Still trying to get my thoughts straight on that.
Also, I've been vegetarian for 2 weeks. I plan on talking about that. (people have been quite bewildered and amused of my food choices over on facebook, lol).
It's the start of another new week.
I'm going to have a GREAT week... on purpose.
You do the same!!
