Sunday Summary and #ROW80 Check-In

  1. Football season has officially begun!  The Bulldogs and Rebels both won their season openers.  We had a double header (can you call it a double header when it’s football not baseball?) with the Arkansas v. Auburn game and the MSU v. Southern Miss games yesterday with another couple who are friends of ours.  We had SUCH GOOD FOOD.  I made my first ever batch of gluten free-dairy free sausage balls, which disappeared in record time (I’ll write up a post for Pots and Plots later today).  And through groupthink, we all decided we should wrap the bratwursts in bacon, which was GENIUS.  OMG SO GOOD.  And we ended the night with individual blueberry crumbles.  Happy bellies were had by all.
  2. Hubs and I get a gloriously lazy day today, other than a few loads of laundry, since we did the OMG People Are Coming Over! clean yesterday.  I can’t remember the last time we got to do that.  I need to make up a batch of gluten free hamburger buns today, and do my menu planning for the week.  I planned my menu last week and then I’m not sure I ever actually followed it.  I’ve got a bit of a hankering for crock pot gyros.
  3. Our temporary resident goes to get spayed on Tuesday, then will be off to her forever home on the 4th.  She’s a sweet little thing,and had been really well behaved mostly, but we’re all ready to get back to our usual routine.  My dogs would like to be able to do their daily constitutional without somebody trying to play kissy face.
  4. On Wednesday, I finished my first half read through of TGMTY and made my list of revisions.  I’ve been BLOWING THROUGH THEM like gangbusters.  After a month of craptastic productivity, the last 3 days, I’ve spewed out nearly 5k.  This makes me very very happy.  I’ve got two scenes left I need to expand and one full scene left to write that I’ve been putting off.  If I can sort out the details of those scenes, I have a good chance of finishing up this round of revisions by end of day tomorrow, since I’m off for Labor Day.  That would be fabulous.  So that’s what I’m shooting for.

  1. I think you’re feeling the change of seasons, even though “change of seasons” really doesn’t mean much in the South. (We’re in for more hot and sticky here in Georgia.)

    5K in 3 days is NaNoWriMo fast. Excellent!

  2. Yay for the progress of your revisions. Like you, we are a gluten-free household (and no dairy, egg, nuts, shellfish, and the list goes on), so I’ll be checking out that recipe. We are huge football fans, too, except more pro than college (because my alma mater is a basketball school with a sadly pathetic football team most years). This round is so flying by!
