Hello and firstly apologies for my tardiness. It has been a crazy week. I have been upgrading my kitchen with some help from a friend. Six days of sanding, priming and painting cupboard doors! You don’t realize how many doors a kitchen has until you have to paint them, I can tell you. So from dull wooden kitchen to a fresh, bright and clean white kitchen with a soft green in the panels. A new splash-back has been put up too.
There is still more to do, as I had white tongue and groove to put over large wood panels and then a major reorganization. De-cluttering will commence once the upgrade is complete. The sanding and painting is a real upper body work out and with the hot temperatures we have been experiencing, sitting out on the deck meant I caught the sun. The sore muscles and weariness are so worth the end result though.
So to sum up – no writing done and almost no reading either. I am waiting on a revision to my steampunk novel book cover and review from my publisher for edits to the manuscript. My newest suspense manuscript has been left alone for the time being. Creativity of another sort took precedence.
I do have one event to look forward to in October – a writing retreat with a couple of friends in Crownest Pass. It is a self contained cabin, so we can write without disturbance, enjoying the views and being inspired by nature. I should be able to get some reading done too.
What have you upgraded during COVID19? It seems to be a popular thing to do for sure.
