It's pay week so the normal chores have to get done. Bills are paid. Grocery list needs to be made. I've got to go through Ibotta and Checkout 51 to see if we can get any rebates. We need to make up a menu for the next two weeks. I need to clip coupons.
Fortunately, I have more time to do these tasks since I'm off this week. Today I'm slow getting up. I woke up sleepy despite going to bed early last night. My plan for the day - pay bills (done), take a shower (I guess), check diggers hotline to see how far in advance we have to schedule, work on edits for Wayfarer Conviction, read the rest of the Wayfarer series, and remember to have meals.
Yesterday I got to tell my daughter I was at 90% for reading a book and she needed to go away while I finished. She's usually the one telling me this - but she reads a kagillion books in a year.
My vacation is going well. I've crossed off a number of things on my todo list and I'm still working on several of them. Progress is good. I've also had down time to veg. I've worked on the business side of my writing / publishing stuff. I've finished writing a novel and am shifting to the editing phase.
Next I want to do some crocheting. I'm trying to decide if I will take a day to binge watch a series or movies while I crochet or if I'll do it during the evening. I'll have to see how things go. (This is more of my zen approach - sort of).
The hardest part for me during my vacation? Remembering to shower and eat. I get involved and forget to do both. I've listened to a lot of music and read several books while I've been off - a few not the Wayfarer series. It all goes to me taking time to take care of me and do the things I LOVE to do.
One downside to cleaning and organizing my craft room - I want to crochet and create. I can feel that edging into my brain for let's do this now. We were putting away some amazing yarn and I wanted to get my hands on it and make good stuff with it. I can feel the switch from writing to crocheting coming. However, I have a lot of editing to get done first. Right now, characters are pushing on me more than the desire to crochet. I'm going with the flow of things for now.
