Plate Update: Football, Christmas Cards, and Himalayas

Plate Update: Football, Christmas Cards, and Himalayas

So… this is late. πŸ˜€ I usually post my “Plate Update” (a quick review of what I accomplished/experienced off my “full plate” the month before) in the first week of a new month, but between that amazing Five Fall Favorites party and some other things I wanted to post last week… here we are. πŸ˜€

September (probably my favorite month because… autumn!! ❀ ) was full of gluten-free baking. (Almond flour coffee cake and pancakes! I love trying new recipes. πŸ˜€ )

Here’s a quick update on my full plate last month.Β πŸ˜‰

Pleasure read:

Gone Rogue (four stars)

The Mysterious Benedict Society (five stars)

Love Blind (five stars)

Gathering Blue (three stars)

All the Crooked Saints (two stars)


More party emails πŸ˜‰


I actually fell down on keeping track of this since the rest of the month was pretty busy and sometimes stressful. πŸ˜‰ So if this is usually your favorite part, sorry about that. I’m trying to do better this month.Β 


So many reviews O.o.

This month’s newsletter

New scenes in my WIP, finishing draft three πŸ˜€

Blog posts (the top five being I Have a New Favorite Author, An Avoidance of Strawberries, Inspiration–the Thoughts of a Hacker, Happily Busy, and Just Memes.) Also, I wrote some posts for Five Fall Favorites ahead since we were scheduling them early in the morning. πŸ˜‰


A Christmas story prequel to KieraΒ 


Went to my first football game πŸ˜€

Attended a very sweet Christian wedding ❀

Cried over “The Odd Life of Timothy Green” and “Meet the Robinsons” during family movie nights

Made Christmas cards for soldiers with my sisters

Worked with super cool beta-readers πŸ˜‰

I also did an inventory at our local Christian bookstore with a sister and my mom, attended our church’s family camp, went to the coffee shop twice ( :O ) and had tea both times, and had some sweet family times with read-alouds or just long talks. ❀ Also, I very much enjoyed my download of Himalayas and eagerly awaited the arrival of my physical cd. πŸ˜€

This next month (or at least what’s left of it), I’m looking forward to tackling some projects that have been giving me a little trouble, loving the rain, and being brave in Christ. πŸ˜‰

How was your September?Β What are you looking forward to this month?

  1. In September I started to read some Christmas books. My sisters and I decorated for Autumn. In October we added Halloween decorations. I intend to start wrapping the few Christ,as gifts I have purchased. I hate leaving everything until the last minute.

  3. I’m so far behind on these posts. I do read them when they come in, but sadly I haven’t taken the time to comment. 😦
    Uh, September? I spent a lot of time planning for the Five Fall Favorites party, trying to get some short stories written, and other things. I can’t even remember everything. Oh, I did go on a bike ride (bicycle) with my grandpa (89), Dad, aunt, brother, and 5 of my nieces and nephews. Most of us rode both ways which ended up being about 8 miles. πŸ™‚
