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)

Answered:

More party emails πŸ˜‰

Googled:

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 

Wrote:

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˜‰

Edited:Β 

A Christmas story prequel to KieraΒ 

Miscellaneoused:

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™‚
