Sunday Salon: September 21, 2014
Not much time for reading or writing or blogging this week. We have been watching the Princess for the past five days and I must confess, I forgot how all-consuming a toddler can be. Her parents will pick her up late this evening , however, and I (hopefully) I will return to a regular routine soon.
Reading: Well, quite a bit of reading, but mostly in the form of Fairy Tales and picture books. Our current favorites include The Three Little Pigs and Llama Llama and the Bully Goat. Fortunately she loves reading almost as much as her “Olly”
Writing: While I have not actually written this week, I did meet with a beta reader on Tuesday, and we had a wonderful time talking and brainstorming about my NaNoWriMo novel. She is of the opinion that I should revise the book to YA rather than Middle Grade and delve into the lives of the male patrons of the ballet. I have many ideas to flesh out over the next few weeks, and I am rather excited to see where this story takes me.
Blogging: This week I wrote Part one of a four-part series on Finding Your Soul’s Agenda. The First step is to identify your Heart’s Desire.
Other possible info: As I said at the start, I have spent the past five days trying to keep a three-year-old entertained. When the weather cooperated, we did a lot of swinging, but mostly we had to find ways to stay busy indoors. Kinetic Sand was HUGE hit and we found time to play with it every day. We also decorated gingerbread Haunted Houses and festive fall cookies. We painted Halloween ornaments and participated in many tea parties. We spent one afternoon at the mall visiting the American Girl Salon, the Disney Store and the carousel. Today we might venture a trip to the zoo …. or just consider this a day of rest.
Oops… I’m being summoned… I best go for now…
