It’s free week once again so I think I am simply going to share what is going on in my life at the moment. I am currently working on something new but since my computer broke I am currently writing by hand so it is taking longer. However I am loving this story. It is something new for me since it doesn’t really fall into romance at all. Even my YA books have a romantic center pulling the story along. This doesn’t. Jess, my sixteen year old has been reading it as I write and she is enjoying it. Which is not the norm for her, my writing is not her favorite and that’s ok but to see her excited about what I am working on is making me excited to finish it. The title is The Toymaker’s Curse, that is as much as I am revealing until the first draft is finished.
In other areas of my life I have just set up my new sewing machine. I picked up a fee things to make some teddy bears and rabbits for kids at my church and eventually to take some to the children’s hospital. Jess asked me to make her Prom dress so I need to get started on that soon. I want to have it finished by April but since it will be my first time making a dress without supervision from my amazingly talented mother I want to start early in case I mess up. Jess picked out the material and pattern and as soon as it’s done I will post pictures.
Book fair is going on at the local schools this week and next week which has my kids excited. It is something they look forward to every year. Wyatt came out of school yesterday telling me all about the books he wanted and then drawing the covers so I would know what they look like when I finally go to purchase books.
Exercising has been a part of nearly everyday. I had good intentions to get up and move every thirty minutes or hour. That stopped about a week or so into the new year. Here recently Jess has been exercising with me, she gets done with school at two in the afternoon so we have an hour before the boys get home. We use that time to exercise and talk. It’s really working too! I feel better and I have lost 7 pounds.
Hoe have the first two months of 2017 treated you?
