Man, I'm glad for a weekend. This week was long but not because I got a lot done. It was just long because I would have rathered be back in bed.

Oh well. It's over and I get to sleep in tomorrow.

I got more writing on the novel done. Morgan's plan to seduce Quinn with cupcakes went sideways when Quinn surprised her with art supplies that brought back memories of Morgan's grandmother being mean. Abusive mean. But Quinn's revived it by offering, yup, cupcakes (hey, they were right there) and cuddles.

Yeah, I want to write them cuddling and then playing with paint afterwards. Why not?

Got this week's story uploaded everywhere. It's another Gods Above and Below story called The Shadow of Time's Courage. I didn't get the Now Available post up but once the POD has cleared I absolutely am going to get that done. Looks like Now Available posts are going up once a month or so. *sigh*

Did manage to get prep work done all the way to my next novel to come out in the first week of November. That's the first of my 3 novels in 3 months books: Day Hunt on the Final Oblivion. Need to do final proofreading, get it into POD (along with three other stories) and I'll be well ahead of schedule. I might even get it up for preorder. :D

Goals for tomorrow include going and spending my gift card at Barnes and Noble, hitting the mall, writing, shredding mountains of zucchini for zucchini bread, and that's about it, I think.

I'm off to bath and bed now--goodnight everyone!

i have meringues left over too

the meringues went over well at my sister's rosh hashanah dinner last night (my aunt, who says to me "you know i'm diabetic", and who does mostly take care of her health, had one and took one home for later) and almost no one ate the honey cake! everyone might have been too full of roast. consequently i have a lot of honey cake in the freezer. but it was good! and not as overbaked as i thought! i'm still going to try and find a 10"x10" cake pan for next time, tho.

glitter!

i'm watching battlestar galactica the miniseries, and everyone looks so young! aaron douglas is a baby! i never saw the miniseries and i think i started watching the series in the middle of s2 so i was always a little confused, but a lot of this is familiar, and mostly it's nice to see how thing started. i always liked how the space battles were shot, and i loved that your superior was always "sir", even if they were female - like, the pilots all called roslin "sir", and i thought that was great - and baltar is still nuts. i think there's a bsg marathon all weekend on the syfy channel.

[livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang claims open tomorrow morning and i may or may not have set my alarm clock to guarantee i get my ass out of bed on time. there are a couple of pieces i really like as art but have no story ideas for, and a couple more i totally could write for. one of them is so far in my wheelhouse it isn't funny. fingers crossed i get one of the arts i want.

now the dark knight returns is on and i'm always so disappointed they covered tom hardy's face with a mask. i know it's part of the character, but still. his face! also? i hate christian bale's batman voice.

tomorrow is apples and honey!

i'shanah tovah, my fellow hebs! may you be inscribed in the book of life for a good year. :D

in sort of the same vein, you can get kosher pot products from a canadian medical marijuana company. i love that there's such a thing as kosher pot buds.

in sort of other news, my meringues came out well except they are VERY SWEET. O.O (not surprising considering they have a cup of sugar and almost nothing else in them.) they're easy to make: first, preheat the oven to 350ยบ. then beat three egg whites (i used four but i was told three) until stiff, then slowly add a cup of sugar and a tsp of vanilla extract while still beating. when that's all mixed, fold in 3/4 cup of chocolate chips and drop by spoonfuls onto a tinfoil-lined cookie sheet. stick the cookie sheet in the oven, turn the oven off, and leave it there at least overnight. don't open the oven. don't peek. i made the meringues last night and took them out of the oven after i got home tonight, so they were in there almost twenty-four hours. and now they're nice and crisp on the outside and light on the inside and did i mention they're REALLY SWEET? but also full of mini chocolate chips. next time i'm going to use peppermint extract instead of vanilla.

i have to get up early tomorrow because my sister and i are going to the early service for rosh hashanah, and i'm not looking forward to it. well, i'm looking forward to the holiday, just not getting up early.
