Weekly Wrap-Up

This week has been a blur of activity around here.

We prepped for 2 parties and Halloween itself, bowled, suffered two meltdowns (this will probably be addressed again next Saturday morning), went to a 50th Wedding Anniversary/Vow Renewal dinner in the midst of the NorEaster that hit Massachusetts Saturday night. During all of this I did manage to get about 5,300 words written, attend a local writers meeting, shop for my NaNo swap partner stuff, and worked up some new promo stuff.

Now onto what's in store for me this coming week. NaNo starts Tuesday so I plan to spend tomorrow working on my WIP and trying to decide which story to make my NaNo project. I like having 2/3 projects going at a time so I plan to do at least 2k for NaNo and then work on Brazen 6, which is slated to be the last in my Brazen Sister Series.

While I'm sorry to see the Brazen Sisters story end I'm looking forward to what coming next.

Tickle Me Tuesday: Halloween Goodies

This week is a total rush here getting things done, meetings, and of course Halloween.

Goodie Bags

Actually to start this off right I should say this week started Friday afternoon. My sister and her five kids came over to get a jump start on the 23 goodie bags we need and costumes for the party they went to on Saturday.

Cocolate Dipped Pretzel Rods

The bags we made are for all my nieces, nephews, and my niece Katrina's bowling group.

 My daughter is making stuff for her friends and co-workers too. Actually all the food on this page was made by her.

Marshmellow Frankenstien Pops
Later tonight after I get some writing done I'll be whipping up some brownies for my first meeting with the Worcester Writers Collaborative tomorrow night.

Chocolate Lolipops
Homemade Popcorn balls


Chocolate Cover Oreos

Thurday will be my only day to relax and write with no interruptions. Friday My nephew Josh and Katrina will be sleeping over so we can make the cupcakes for their Halloween Party at bowling Saturday morning. Saturday night is my hisband's father's 50th Wedding Anniversary party.

Chocolate Loli Pops

Sunday the kids have a bowling tournement and she has a birthday party to go to so I'll have them for that as well. Monday is finally Halloween and I'll be going to my sisters for a bit before I go to bowl in my Monday night league.

Next Tuesday I may be a little loopy from lack of sleep and too much fun.

Hope everyone has a safe and fun holiday.

Wayback Wednesday. How Many Remember This.

I have been watching my 4 year old nephew a couple of days a week and it has brought back a couple of fun memories like this song.

This was another great show from my younger days.

Is there a TV show or movie that you remember fondly?

Kate Kingston and Brett Montgomery have been fighting their attraction for years. Kate’s older brother Darren has decided it’s finally time for them to admit the way they feel, or lose what he sees as their best chance at happiness. He puts a plan in motion to set Kate up on five blind dates, promising afterwards he’ll stay out of her love life forever. Brett is furious when he finds out.

Brett not only objects to the men Darren chooses, he objects to Darren’s whole plan. There’s no changing Darren’s mind so he sabotages the dates. He’s playing a dangerous game, because he comes way too close to crossing a line with Kate that he swore he never would.
