Plate Update: Weary and Blessed

This year is rushing by like a puppy who stole something. I’m pretty sure I just did one of these updates last week, right? *laughs and cries because quarantine has made time meaningless*

  1. I’ve been working on editing a series of short stories and finding Betas for it, as I intend to publish it next year ^-^ And then also been doing art- a lot of hand-painted cards mainly. And playing card and board games.

  2. I’ve been trying so hard to track down Andy Griffith episodes!! I watched one when I was a kid and fell in love. My sister and I recently watched a couple somewhere and fell in love…

    1. Ahhh, same! I loved them as a kid, and now I’m enjoying them again. We’re watching them on Amazon Prime, but that’s US so I don’t know if it’s available to you. Here’s hoping you can find it! 😀


  3. Wow! Those cupcakes look sooo delicious! Mint is one of my favorite flavors. And mac and cheese is a favorite of mine too.

    Scrapbooked cards sound like fun. My sisters and mom and I have been decorating journal pages this summer. I look forward to seeing this blog party that you hint at; also, what is The Minority Report? A documentary or tv series?

    Hope you have a great week Kate!

    1. Aw, thanks! They were pretty good. 😀 High five for mac and cheese!

      Ooo, that’s fun! 😀 Eeep, it’s very soon. As in next weekend. 😀 😀 It’s a sci-fi movie with some really cool themes and some scenes that need editing. 😉

      Aw, thanks! You too.
