Straw

Berries!

We went a little heavy on the strawberries this time. The water should be clear, I think. We were squeezing the berries to attempt homemade strawberry lemonade. Well, it sort of worked. At any rate, it was less water, more fruit, and I’m sure something else will be attempted tomorrow. Maybe we’ll finally get to the cucumbers.

One hour nap

I told myself I was going to wake up at 5:00 a.m. this morning, and I sure did wake up at 5:00 a.m. this morning.

And then I promptly took a one hour nap.

Yesterday was a nice day at home. Slept in until nearly 11:00 a.m., goofed off a bit and watched Contagion, then went grocery shopping, got the trash out by 5:00 p.m., started watching San Andreas with the kids, made spaghetti at 6:00 p.m., went back to the movie, sent everyone to bed shortly after 8:00 p.m., worked on money things, and watched yet another movie, The Martian. I made it to bed about 11:00 p.m.

I did write, 266 words (more than yesterday!), with 543 total words. Today’s goal is once again more than yesterday, and a strict bedtime goal of 10:00 p.m., if not before.

No more morning naps.

Edited to add:

I forgot to review my week!

Weekly total words: 4,070
Weekly total fiction words: 2,080
Weekly total blog words: 1,990
Difference from last week: -3%
Weekly rank: 7 (of 10)

That’s a loss I can deal with. Go, me!
