What's Up Wednesday!!!
What I'm Reading I'm reading Just One Day by Gayle Forman. I want to hop a train to Paris now but alas, I live in Florida. I'm also reading Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. We won't even mention the review books I should be reading...
The kids and I are still reading Jotham's Journey for advent and Farmer Boy for school. I can't wait for Christmas break when we don't have so many things to read for school. I'm going to pick a read aloud book that has nothing to do with history at all, a fantasy perhaps.
What I'm Writing I've been looking over my current WIP, trying to get the story flowing again. I tried to write yesterday but technical problems took over. I have them all sorted out now so today I should be good to go! I have about 30k left in to reach the length I'm hoping for.
What Inspires Me Right Now Christmas Cookies! I have some healthyish , not Christmasy cookies cooking right now and I can't wait to make some decadent, non-healthy, totally decked out ones later this week. To balance out my current inspiration I will add that I have also been inspired by working out with my husband. He is more into circuit style workouts and I tend to go for yoga/dance/Pilates type of exercise paired with walking or running but trying something different and spending time together is wonderful.
What Else I've Been Up To I've been standing in line at the post office with three small children. Yup, I couldn't even get it all done in one trip so we went twice. I don't recommend it. It's a relief to have all of the presents in the mail though. Now I can focus on making cookies and crafts and sparkly white play dough (since it is to hot here for snow and we need to make snowmen!).
I'm still working on the Lego table I'm making. The old finish was much harder to remove then I thought it would be but I am finally to the point that I can start painting it.
I will be blogging sporadically throughout the next few weeks as there is no What's Up Wednesday in honor of the holidays.
