Weclome to my Weekend Coffee Share, hosted by Allison at Eclectic Ali WordPress. I have so much going on in my head I can’t type prose right now! Nor can I churn out an emotional poem. Perhaps I am using the other side of my brain more this week? Grades are due in the next week, and I have been pulling my hair coming up with personalized plans for my students to make strides in the reading standards for English Language Arts. Yes, it’s a little analytical for me. But I’ll get it done! Add to that the online course I am taking. Ugh…
There is good news, though: a Book signing is scheduled for my first full-length novel, Detours in Time, and I will also have some of the sequel, Undercurrents in Time at the book signing on Sat., Nov. 3rd, 10 am to 2 pm at San Marco Bookstore in Jacksonville, FL, in case any of you are in town! I’m excited, and I’m planning, thinking about marketable tactics, planning a good night’s sleep the night before. (Hope it works)!
So, this weekend is that of an introvert’s lifestyle. Analyzing data, working on personalized plans, and grading while sitting in the living room with my son watching “Logan,” a tale of the aging Wolverine. I love to nerd out. Luckily, I’d seen it before, or I’d have to put the work down! I suppose this counts as quality family time with my twenty-two year old son? After he went to bed, I chilled out with Netflix’s “Maniac,” a truly weird, yet engaging tale. Last weekend, my boyfriend and I discovered “Unbreakable” from 2000, and now I want to watch all the others in the series!
In all this, I have been feeling the aches of arthritis pain this week, and I skipped yoga again! Big mistake. A little walk this morning made me feel better though. Yeah, it’s truly an introverting weekend, but don’t read me wrong. I am planning a lot of socializing in November and will have my conversation face on for the book signing! I love talking about my books! Overall, I am still going. I can’t stop. My big break may be just around the corner, or, I may be working on the side hustle until retirement allows me to write full-time. Either way, I can do this!
Thank you for the visit. My coffee really energized me this morning, and I am well-rested after last night! I hope you feel fueled this morning as well. Have a great week!
