Weekend Update

Eyes are filled with woe still but I can use them in increments, so small win. Hubs is not 100% but definitely much better, so another win. I've been off & on with migraine on top of the eye thing, but having some moments of productivity in between. 

Since hubs is recovering from tummy woes, we've been doing a lot of soups. I made vegetable beef soup yesterday and we brought some over to our elderly friends who are still battling the vestiges of COVID, but appear to be out of the woods so long as they keep themselves hydrated. Doc still doesn't have much of an appetite.

Getting excited about poetry and creative essay type writing again, so maybe that does indicate meaningful improvement with the old eyeballs. Either that, or I keep getting body slammed by new ideas.

Florida will happen this month--just not sure if we'll leave in one week or two.

Bro-in-law is coming over to watch college basketball this afternoon. We'll order pizza.

Two new audiobooks to add to my "read" list: The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow which I highly recommend. She has a sense of prose that borders on poetry, so it was beautifully written and I loved the story. I wouldn't even change the ending on this one! (The endings are sooooo important to me, but as a writer, I also know how incredibly hard it is to write a satisfying ending.) I also listened to the first in a series (the good thing about borrowing audiobooks online, is that I know where to start in a series...I am known for reading serials out of order!)--it was Touched by AJ Aalto. Fun listen, and I'm intrigued enough to continue with the series. It reminds me very much of The Discovery of Witches but with a smidge of The Golden Compass/His Dark Materials thrown in for good measure. It wasn't especially well written, as the foreshadowing is way more obvious than I would like it to be, but the storyline was fun to follow.
