What's Up Wednesday!

Good morning, Wednesday! It's another bright day with massive storms in the forecast, but that's not the point. Today, it's time for another edition of. . . 

What's Up Wednesday!!!

And unfortunately, it's the last. 

Thanks to the lovely duo, Jaime Morrow and Erin L. Funk, who have kept this hop going and allowed us to share all sorts of things with each other. It was fun, and I'll definitely miss it!

What I'm Reading

I've read more than last week, but then that's not exactly hard. I finished up TAKING ANGELS a YA paranormal romance by C.S. Yelle. It's well written and an easy read, just right for those moments to simply enter another time and space.

I'm currently reading ADAMANT by Emma Adams and enjoying it! I'll get back to that one next week.

What I'm Writing

Still revising, although this last week was a lot slower due to stomach flu issues and such. Kids at home definitely puts a damper on this end.

What Works for Me

Leaving the laptop on the dining room table open and ready. When life gets busy and full of interruptions, this is the only way I'll get anything done. Then, when I suddenly have a second, I can slide into the chair and type before shooting off to another task or emergency. It doesn't mean a ton of writing time, but even a little is better than none.

What Else I'm Up To

Stomach flu, obviously. But who wants to concentrate on such things?

Saturday was auction day, and although I didn't get the furniture I was hoping for, I found other goodies, including a table and chair set for my patio. Now, when the weather is nice, I can sit outside and sip iced tea.

Sunday we went to the zoo and out to lunch for my daughter's birthday. We had a grand old time.

My parents finally sold their farm and are now in search of a fitting one in this area. We only have two months to find one, so the last day or two have meant a ton of phone time and computer searches. But we're excited.

And last but not least, it's about baby goat time! Yep, our goats are on the verge of bringing new little ones into the world. I spent the day yesterday scrubbing out a special area of the pen so the mommy can have her peace and quiet. As soon as they're born, I'll make sure to post pictures. We've never done this before, so it's an exciting moment.

And what about you? What happened this week? Get a lot of reading done? Did the keyboard smoke from typing speed? Did you finally find your way out of the revision cave? See the first flower? Listen to the birds twitter? What's Up with you????
