Hermit Grumbling

Finished another student worker gift and am half done with another, as well as discovered I'm more productive listening to an audio book than I am watching tv.  This is probably due to my not having to look up to see what's going on while I'm listening to a book.

Last night Ken and I went to supper with two of my sisters, a nephew, uncle, mom and brother-in-law.  It was a good supper and a good time with the people.  I thoroughly enjoyed being with the people.

Having said that, when I was getting ready to go all I wanted to do was stay home and keep working on my stuff.  I was grumbly about having to go outside my house and my comfort zone of being a hermit to go out to supper.

Now I do laugh at myself because we did have a good time and a good meal.  It was really nice to spend time with Aimee and Jerry because we don't get a lot of time with them.  I enjoy their company and can have a good conversation with them.  It was just me being grumbly about going out.

Today the plan is to stay in all day.  Yes I'm going to be a hermit and work on writing and on crocheting.  I want to finish the student worker gift I'm working on and hopefully start the last one.  I have an idea in my head and I want to see if I can make it work out like I see it in my head.

I've been entering the Writer's of the Future contest every quarter.  This quarter I haven't entered because I didn't love my choice for entering.  I have taken a lot of criticism on the piece and I'm not sure it is up to par for submitting.  Then last night I had a really good idea for a piece that might work out nicely - going to see if I can crank it out in the word limit they have.

It promises to be a full day with crocheting and writing.  There is so much I want to get done and I know I'll be lucky to get like half of it done.  On a positive note, I'm now reading Rapture in Death and enjoying it thoroughly.

Not sure what Ken's plans are for the day but he grumbled something about chores he wanted to get done.  I know he got out the snow blower because they were calling for six inches.  With it being weather, they have of course changed their minds on that.  But the lawn mower is put away and the snow blower is out.  We are switching gears with the season.
