Tuesday Quick Hits

I know, I know, I owe you a post.  Preferably one that is non-political.

There are actually a whole lot of things I want to post about, but most of my writing time has been taking up with the kind of writing I've been wanting to do for a long time:  fiction.  I try to write about 1000 words a day, in addition to research.   I've mentioned this before, but the novel is set in 1678 in London and is about a female fortune teller who becomes involved in the unsolved mystery of a client's death.  The working title is Touching of the Evil but that will definitely change because it is based on an earlier story line I'd worked out and doesn't really have anything to do with the current story.

So all that writing hasn't left a lot of time for posting here, but that's okay.

To tide you over, here is a random selection of things I'm also doing these days.

What I'm Reading
One Fifth Avenue by Candace Bushnell

What I'm Knitting
Christmas Gifts!  Can't blog too much about that because part of my limited audience might actually be receiving said gifts.

What I'm Eating
Shrimp!  I've been making a lot of things with this yummy shellfish lately.  Most recently, I made Emeril's Shrimp and Pasta with Lemon, Garlic, Chilis, and Green Onion.  It was delicious, and super easy.  I made it for a dinner party and pre-measured and prepared all the ingredients so all I had to do was throw it all together when it was time to eat.

What I'm Drinking
Sugar Free Red Bull.  I am a caffeine addict and unless someone can provide evidence that it will eventually kill me, I will remain one.  Lately, I've been drinking Sugar Free Red Bull as a substitute for coffee in the morning.  As it gets colder, I might switch back to coffee but for now I'm liking this instead.

What I'm Watching
Dexter.  I am loving it this season.

What I'm Not Watching
Californication.  We loved the first season of this show but after a couple of episodes this season, we stopped.  It was getting on my nerves.

Where I'm Surfing
I've really been loving Ravelry lately, which is a knit/crochet community.  I've been a member for awhile now but it's only been the last couple of months that I've really gotten into it.  If you haven't signed up yet and you're a knitter or crocheter, do it now!

So that's it for now.  Have a good Tuesday!

  1. Love how the book is sounding. Let me know if you need to interview anyone in my family for any Witch or Fortune Telling research. Hahaha.
    Fun hit-list. Thanks for sharing. I didn’t know you drank Red Bull? Uck.
