I just realized I never got around to this yesterday. It was a busy busy weekend!
- Hubby and I got our Christmas tree. It is a truth universally acknowledged, that the trees always look smaller at the lot. We have 12 foot ceilings. And yes, that is a sock monkey on my head. This is what we do when we don’t have to accommodate for a wheelchair (my mom had foot surgery this time last year, so we had a puny tree). I’ll try to snap a pic later today of the thing actually DECORATED. We were up until 12:30 Saturday night putting on lights and ribbons and half the ornaments. Then I got up and finished the other half yesterday morning, along with putting out a bunch of other decorative stuff before cleaning up and heading out for a double feature of A Christmas Carol and Christmas in Connecticut on the big screen.
- This was the first time I’d ever seen Christmas in Connecticut and I LOVED IT. Barbara Stanwyck was a real delight. And I spent the whole ride home contemplating how I might do a modern retelling in Wishful, the same way I did for Be Careful, It’s My Heart (which is based on White Christmas, which I get to see on the big screen NEXT weekend. SO EXCITED! It’s my favorite!).
- I had a few days last week that I felt cruddy, so I didn’t get as much written last week as I wanted. I did some solid plot work on the next Seekrit Project, and then Saturday finally got back to the novella. I may not get finished by the time I go back to work in January after Christmas break, but it should be close. We’ll see what happens when I actually get off from the day job for the break.
I’m sure there’s more news, but it’s Monday and there is much to do. Have a good week, y’all!
