Fabulous Friday

Is it just me, or has it been a really long damn week?

Making great progress on RIDING ON INSTINCT. Even despite Biker Dude taking two days vacation to work outside on lawn and garden things, and me wanting to be outside with him, so that ate into my writing just a bit. But it was warm and sunny and honestly how could I resist the lure of summer? Plus we’re doing some massive overhauling of the front yard and I wanted to help out. Still, I managed 13K for the first four days this week. Now I have to push it because my goal is 20K a week until the book is done.

I started a tomato plant yesterday in a container. Never done a container tomato plant before, so we’ll see how that goes. I know it’s a little late. That seems to be my motto this year. A little late. Ugh. But I got a great looking plant that already has a few tomatoes on it. Hopefully it’ll yield for me. (I LOVE homegrown tomatoes).

Tomorrow is Biker Dude’s annual company picnic. They fry fish, then everyone else brings a side or a dessert, so I have to bring something. I think I’ll make zucchini bread. Another project for me to do today. I haven’t made zucchini bread in a really long time and I found a great recipe. I really do enjoy cooking and baking. I just don’t tend to do a lot of it because by the time I get to that point in the day my brain and body are tired. This week, though, I was determined to cook and I did. I made two new recipes and they turned out great. I made a steak salad, then a chicken waldorf salad and both were really good. (Cooking while on deadline is exhausting…just sayin’ :giggle: )

Hopefully those 40mph winds we’ve been having the past couple days are over now. I’d hate to blow away at the picnic tomorrow.

Any fun plans for the weekend?
