I got some words, yes. Didn’t want to break my streak, after all.
What else did I do with my day? Hauled Girl Scout cookies, which accounts for hundreds of reps of twists and lifts, and dozens of curls and static carries. Also a bit more of a workout than my still-recovering breathing apparatus was up for. On the other hand, it was awesome to just meet up with other women from the local troops and work together on a joint project and just feel like I clicked. I’m going to be getting more involved with my daughter’s group, and I’m happy about that.
I also had a great Hangout with Kate Baker, the Operations Manager for SFWA, chatting about projects I’m interested in, attending the business meeting at Nebula Weekend, things I can help with, how to get help if I’m flailing … It was a fun Hangout, and I’m looking forward to seeing her in person at Boskone next month.
Then I spent a good chunk of the afternoon poking at some of the things Kate and I discussed. I’m currently debating whether I’m going to be better off budgeting time each day to work on SFWA (in addition to keeping up with the discussion boards, which I do anyway), or if planning to spend all of one day per week will work better. For now, I think, it’s going to be some each day while I get up to speed.
The thing that tickled me most today? The unexpected mention of the puppy-shaped cake I made for my daughter’s birthday.

As you can see, I got a fair bit of reading done while waiting to load cookies at the pick-up point! Have to use time wisely, after all.
