The cool(er) weather streak that we’ve had has continued and I am loving every second of it, but it has dreaming of fall. I can’t wait for boots and long sleeves and scarves, for the smokey smell that fills the air, the changing colors of the leaves and the sounds of high school football games at the high school nearby. But I guess I should enjoy August while it lasts. Judging by how quickly this year has gone by, August will be over before I know it.
I got my hair trimmed today and I decided to get bangs as well. Any guesses as to when I’ll regret getting them? I really like them right now, though, and my mom said that they make me look more youthful, so maybe it’s a good look.
It’s Monday so that means it’s time for Weekly Wishes. Last week… was a complete fail! I can’t even remember what I did during the week. I put together a Life Binder (which you can see behind Little One on the bookshelf in the picture), which I love so far and I’m hoping that it will help me stay more organized. And my room was painted. I didn’t do any of the painting, but I couldn’t find anything while it was happening. But the paint job is gorgeous (thanks, dad!) and the color is exactly what I was looking for. I’ll take pictures of it soon, but I’d like to get it all organized before I do. My goal as I move things back into my room is to make sure that everything has a place and if it doesn’t, it goes out.
Back to last week, I didn’t get seven hours of writing in and I don’t know why, so this week I definitely need to make more of an effort. I also didn’t do any designs for Minnesota Mermaids and I didn’t read Overseas. I did finish my reread of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and was so hooked at the end that I had to start reading The Evolution of Mara Dyer right away so I’m finishing that up now. I think I like it more than the first book–and I say “I think” only because I usually don’t like sequels as much as the first book and if I’m reading a trilogy, the second book tends to be my last favorite. But this one I just love and, while I had a lot of questions while reading the first book, I have even more while reading the second. And that’s a good thing!
My goals for this week are:
1. To write for 10 hours throughout the week in order to make up for what I missed last week.
2. To organize my work table so that I have a place to work on designs for Minnesota Mermaids. I think that has been part of my problem.
3. To play around with the hot rollers that I bought ages ago and are still sitting in the box. I don’t use heat on my hair often but awhile ago I thought that hot rollers would be a way to use a smaller amount of heat to get curls so that sometimes I can curl my hair without wearing rollers to bed. I just need to try them out and get the hang of them so that I can do that.
