Friday I got more sewing done. My husband didn’t get home from work until 10.30 p.m. We decided to go to the Saskatoon Comic & Entertainment Expo on Sunday instead of Saturday because there’s more stuff we want to go to on Sunday. That gives me another day to finish my sewing!

Well…getting more sewing done is good and you’ll still enjoy the comicon.

Thursday I finished my petticoat and made my skirt!

Also dishes and laundry and some work. And read more of the novel I’m taking notes on so I can do the structure thing properly for NaNoWriMo. I think I’m right about who did it!

Sounds like you will have fun bringing those ideas to fruition with your book.

Wednesday I was in the city all day as my husband had a vestry meeting and I had shift. I spent the morning at the library and got some work done and wrote a scene and a half for Tumbling. After lunch I went to the coffee shop and did some more work. Then I got a few groceries before picking up my husband from work. We had dinner and then I dropped him off at the church and headed up for my shift. We came home and went to bed.

Tuesday my husband was home due to asthma stuff. I didn’t get tons done. I did read The Death of Us, by Alice Kuipers; I quite liked it.

I’m always impressed with how quickly you can read books! It takes me months! I’m a slooooow reader!

Monday I was in the city as I took the person I do community access with to an appointment in the afternoon.

I spent the morning at the mall (got a new pair of sneakers and some things for my steampunk costume) and then at the library. At the library I booked the room for our upcoming writing workshop and got things confirmed with the author (Sean Cummings, his work is on Amazon so do look him up!) who is doing the workshop for us. (This is NaNoWriMo related.)

In the evening I met up with my friend (so my husband could just go home) and we had dinner and then went to McNally Robinson for Alice Kuipers’ book launch (The Death of Us). She read us chapter one and I bought it and am looking forward to reading it. Her stuff is contemporary YA and I always read the backs of her books and think “I would probably like this book” and then don’t get them for some reason. So now I have one, and it’s her fourth so there are three others and she’s finishing up her fifth right now, which is nice. If I like her stuff I will have no problem finding more to read! :)

Roll on NaNoWriMo! I’m kinda bummed to give it a miss this year (because we’re moving) but hope to get some specific NaNoAnyMo things done anyway in the spirit of the thing. Great stuff you’re doing, Janna!!

Sounds like NaNoWriMo will be fabulous in your neck of the woods.

Sunday I woke up at 8.00 a.m. and got up at 9.00 a.m. My husband slept until 1.00 p.m. or so. When he woke up his breathing was much better.

I went to the Petro-Canada gas station and found frozen pizza and a McCain Deep & Delicious marble cake (and some other goodies) for my birthday. Wound up not eating the pizza but did have some cake.

Did some knitting as well, which was good as I pulled out the shawl and found that I’d messed it up and needed to restart completely. I managed to re-knit all 26 rows I’d frogged, so yay!

Watched three movies in the evening with my husband: The Manchurian Candidate; Piled Higher and Deeper; and Timeline. Definitely recommend all of them!

Great that you could repair the knitting disaster. Glad your husband is feeling better. Hope he continues to improve.

karalianne, in the Orange Bracket, played Saturday September, 13th for 64 points, following 100% of her 5 rules. She didn't lose any life points and therefore got 1 piece of fruit for the hard work. Her public review of the day was…

Saturday we had birthday lunch with my parents in the city, at Bonanza. Then Mom and I went shopping and left my husband and my dad to fend for themselves.

At Penningtons I got a pair of leggings and a set of three pairs of fun socks. The leggings are patterned so I can wear them like tights and be more comfy than wearing actual tights. They should fit me all through my pregnancy, too.

At Motherhood Maternity Mom bought me a pair of dress pants (to wear for work) and two nice tops (they were on sale, buy one get one free), and she paid for a nice long black skirt from my aunt (her sister). I bought a really nice teal shirt.

At Addition Elle I got two bras as the ones I have now are too small. sigh So I just got two to switch between and I’ll get more as things change.

Then to The Bay, where I finally got my husband his birthday present! I got him three silk pocket squares. Now I can have my scarves back and he can have proper stuff in his jacket pockets! :D

We then met up with the men back at McNally Robinson (bookstore).

When we left for home my husband was having the start of an asthma attack. Not the kind where you literally can’t breathe and will die but a more mild kind of thing. It lasted forever and we went to bed at 2.00 a.m. but he was still wheezing and didn’t really fall asleep until around 5.00 a.m. because of his breathing. :P

Sounds like a wonderful day except for DH’s asthma attack.

Friday!

Finished reading Malinda Lo’s Huntress. Good book. A few things about it I’ll be discussing when I review it (I’m behind on my reviews on Goodreads).

Got all the dishes done and all the laundry done. However, definitely slowing down as the week drew to a close. All my energy was just gone. Which is okay, just… I wanted to do more, you know?

I did get more writing done, so chapter 6 of Tumbling is going pretty well. Then I went to research for the cozy mystery I want to write for NaNoWriMo this year, and realized I should just plot the story and figure out what I need to research and THEN do the research. Of course, I’ve never written such a story before (though I enjoy reading them), so plotting is hard. I’ve got one on my shelf waiting to be read, so I’m going to take notes as I read and follow the structure when I do my story. Fingers crossed on that one! :P

Actually it sounds like you got quite a bit accomplished. Unfortunately our energy levels are not consistant and some days are better spent as “recharge” days. I’ll be eager to hear how the process on the cozy mystery works out. If you can just keep the protagonist from suffering from SHS (Stupid heroine syndrome) you’ll have a good one.

Hm. I should make reading cozy mysteries one of her “guilty pleasures” and so then part of how she gets in deep trouble near the end is because she’s trying to avoid the stupid things she sees heroines do in the books she reads.

I just googled “Huntress” and may read that myself today!!!!

Be kind to yourself! You are a mommy-to-be and are doing the work of two!

Thursday: beginning to wind down in terms of motivation and ability to get stuff done. Still did my best, which is all anyone can really expect. :)

Wednesday was pretty good! Laundry, dishes, work, writing… had shift and then got groceries and the mail on the way home. Have birthday month coupons from Addition Elle and Penningtons, plus a coupon for in-store at Indigo when I renew my membership. Clothes and books are definitely in my future!
