Too Little Time

I love long weekends from work. I hate long weekends from work. :o)
While I always enjoy an extra day with the family, the return to work is always a busy one. Not only in my day job but my writing life too. I didn’t get much writing in this weekend – maybe 500 words. Today I’ll be playing catch-up.
I did relax by the pool, had a cookout with family and read two books. Jayne Rylon’s Kate’s Crew and Marie Rose Dufour’s Saddle Up. Both very good. I used to be an OCD reader. You’d never see me without a book. Now trying to squeeze in reading time is difficult. I realize that I need to read to recharge my brain. I get stale in my writing if I’m not reading. So, now I’m going to make that part of my daily routine. Hahahahaha.
The good thing is the television shows are done for the summer – except Game of Thrones which ends this coming Sunday. Bummer. I’m sure they’ll make us wait another 9 months to find out what happens.
With nothing to watch, but baseball…and I must say I’m not watching it like the obsessive fan I normally am, I’ll do more reading. It’s funny how addictions change.  
Wish I had more to add to the blog this week, but as you can see there’s just too much to do.

Happy Tuesday


  1. Sounds like you had a nice holiday weekend, Amber! There's always a price to pay for taking a break from work though, isn't there?!
    I'm off work until Friday since the kids/grand kids are here, and am trying not to think about will will be awaiting me when I return to the office.

  2. Don't even bother, Tessie! I didn't think about it at all. Enjoy the family. :)

  3. This weekend went too fast!

  4. I too have a love/hate relationship with holiday weekends. We didn't do much - watched softball, baseball and Game of Thrones.

    1. I'm gonna miss Game of Thrones again! :)

  5. The weekend went by way too quickly. Thanks for the shout out!

  6. That's the beauty of being "retired"'s all one big weekend...
