If we were having coffee, we’d be curled up on the couch, or perhaps perched on a chair in the office. It’s very sunny in there, and it makes a good place for a morning cup of coffee. On second thought, though, we’d likely be in the living room; I’ll be spending a good part of the day in the office working, so I’ll just be out here for now, thanks.
The week has been relatively calm, all things considered. On Monday Little Jedi returned to school, and Sam went back to work at an office for the first time in a few months. Monday got a bit hectic—my car battery died when I went to pick up Little Jedi, and Sam had to leave his first day of work early to come help me deal with getting the car to a shop and getting a new battery.
The rest of the week was much smoother, though. I’ve started getting up at 6:30 and using that time to hang out with Little Jedi and Sam before they go their separate ways and then puttering about a bit and doing yoga—and I still manage to sit down and work by 9:00 on most days. I’ve had to make myself a schedule for getting work done here, otherwise I’d never manage it.
Little Jedi seems to be adjusting well to school. We’ve had a few interesting conversations this week—on Tuesday, they read a book in art class about Frida Kahlo and started working on self-portraits, and we’ve had fun talking about that project. Sam’s job is going well, too—he seems to like the work environment, and the job comes with a few perks. Unfortunately, his new schedule does mean that he’s back to working on film stuff on the weekends and evenings, so he’s busier than before.
This evening, Sam and I are going to see a production of Flowers in the Attic on stage, and I’m really excited about it. It’s the one V.C. Andrews novel that I read, and it was definitely a brain-twister. I vaguely remember seeing the film, but that was a long time ago. I remember the story well, though. We’ve a friend in the production, and it’ll be fun to see her performance. Aside from that, it’s all work around here this weekend. I’m working on some grant writing opportunities for the nonprofit, advertisements for the photography business, and writing projects for the Monster.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell that I posted my first ever comics post this week, a review of the Rat Queens series. I also put together the last two pages that I wanted to build for the Monster (for now, at least!): a page with links to my posts on other blogs and a page with links to posts I’ve done for blogathons and events. You can also catch me right here on Monster Monday this week, talking about one of my favorite newly-discovered female monsters.
I’d also tell you about a new plan that is in the works—-October is going to be a totally creepy, totally horrific, totally Halloween-y month around here. Some of our regular contributors will be writing posts, and there’ll be posts from new, never-published-at-Part-Time-Monster bloggers, too!
And now, I’m off to share coffee with some of you fine people. 🙂 Link up your coffee posts below, and don’t forget to use the #weekendcoffeeshare tag on Facebook and Twitter!
