Sick and tired

I've been sick this week, so that made me not want to do anything beyond watching TV. Judging by my acne and a slightly itchy spot on my belly, it's partly allergic reaction. I forgot some chips had milk and yeast in them. At least I realized before I ate the whole bag. It took a little bit for my body to react as it does often with food sensitivities, but I'm getting over it more quickly than I did a year ago, so my immune system is in much better shape. In previous years, my salivary glands would get blocked to the point that my ears would get infected and I'd need antibiotics, so I didn't hesitate to go to the clinic and have it looked at. The doctor told me I didn't need antibiotics as it wasn't bad enough and seemed to be clearing on its own. That is the first time that's happened.

Yesterday I pretty much managed to heat food up, sleep, and watch tv. I was on auto-pilot for the microwave part.

Well I got posts from October, November, and December 2013 copied into Scrivener. I have a bunch left to go, but I'm well underway. Five months worth done and nine to go. That's almost 22,000 words... My brain has started thinking about potential ways to use the old blog posts.

I'm excited to get back to my book soon, though it's good I'm getting time away to clean my house. I hate cleaning, but it's necessary. I know some of you think me insane for being excited to edit my book.

I think I may write a little on my alien conspiracy soon too as I'm dying to finish its first draft.

It's taken me way too long to type this. I better get to sleep.

Ciao,

A Lot of Bullspit - 2020 ROW80 R3-W5

This week has had a lot of bullspit in it. Shortly after my last trip to buy reno supplies, I discovered mold in my bathroom. While that's not shocking, it's pretty much because they appear to have left wet drywall in the wall and covered the wall with another layer of drywall instead of properly repairing it after a leak. Geniuses. This is a mixed bag. It means I may have to do the tub area sooner than I expected. It is the same wall as the annoying peeling paint, so that's kind of good. I may just need to replace much of the wall, which is about 1.5 drywall boards because it's a small room. Cost wise, the wall repair isn't so bad. I'm not looking forward to having to deal with it, but I acquired the PPE gear for it and the mold removal supplies. Now, here's where the project may change substantially. I was originally planning to install a tub surround over the tile and then use the Rust Oleum tub restore stuff, but if there is mold in the wall, it's li

OIW - Book Cover Design Seminar

On May 22nd, I went to a seminar on book cover design. Before the information was presented on design, the author of Imposter Bride, Nancy Richler , read part of her first chapter and the story sounds intriguing. Lately, I am preferring to read the work of other Ottawa-area authors. Perhaps someday it will be my book that they read in turn. Currently, I am reading The Crimson Man by Patricia K McCarthy and though it is not in my genre, it is a fiery read. Ladies, you'll enjoy it. So far it feels heated like 50 Shades of Grey, but with more substance and a higher level of writing skill. At the beginning of the meeting, announcements were made about newly published works by members of the Ottawa Independent Writers group. The Autism Story is written as fiction by a university professor that specializes in the area. It sounds interesting as well. Nancy Richler answered questions about publishing after she completed her reading. Here is what I took from it: 1. Avoid small pr

My DRAWING course is done. I was happy to be learning it, but I am looking forward to not having graded assignments. After this, I will continue another course I started, which is entirely self-paced. I'll continue sharing my drawings on my Instagram: @thewritebuttons   On the HOME front, I have made a lot of progress on my couch project. Really, it will be a loveseat. I finished the sewing portion of the seat section, the wood base, and have nearly finished the wood back for it. I've added wheels to it instead of legs because I want to be able to move it for easy cleaning. Today, I am working on the sewing of the back piece. I acquired all the hardware I needed for attaching everything. I will have a wood skirt to do, which will help everything stay in place. I also have the sofa cover for it, though I will still have to figure out the arms. I'm taking a break on the sewing until thimbles come later this week because I'm tired of pricking my fingers.  As far as MUSIC
