It's been a slow week. I did manage to get caught up on my entire to-do list early, which left blissful hours of NOTHING.
It was awesome!
I would like to say that I wrote. Um.. Not so much. I did, a little. But I'm seriously stuck with this new book. I've written and cut the first few chapters at least six times now. I'm not getting traction.
However, I had a breakthrough. Or, at least I thought I did. I was in bed, halfway to sleep, and the whole thing came at me. I was like: wow, that's brilliant!
Then I woke up the next morning and couldn't remember any of it! haha.
It's slowly coming back to me. I've been jotting notes down. This next week, I'm hitting that MS hard.
Now the photos:
I post on Facebook what happened in the photos. I don't think I want to do that here (because it's a lot of work!), but there are two I'd like to explain.
January 15 (Sunday) -- Bekah is in love with my new K-cup machine. She thinks it's hers. She wakes up and makes Steven and I coffee (and herself a cup of hot chocolate). Unfortunately, last Sunday she woke up hours before us. Never fear, though, she kept the cups and their contents warm by repeatedly putting them in the microwave every 20 minutes. This went on for FOUR HOURS.
While I appreciated the gesture, I did not drink that cup of coffee. haha. But I did teach her how to make the coffee in the coffee pot instead.
January 18 (Wednesday) -- The sunset picture.
Steven came in to the living room where I was
"You've got to come outside," he said.
It was below 20 degrees and I didn't have a jacket or shoes on. Not even a pair of socks for my poor little toes. I thought he was crazy and told him so. Because, in my mind, there was nothing worth seeing that would make it worth the effort.
"No, really," he insisted. "The sky has the most amazing colors."
I heard 'amazing' and 'colors,' grabbed my camera (it was on the coffee table next to me), and ran outside.
It was totally worth frostbite and the loss of a small toe. ;)
Now every time he looks at that picture, or someone comments on it, Steven gives me 'the look.' The one where I have to say, "Thank you so much, baby. If it wasn't for you, I wouldn't have taken that picture."
