Since taking a break in March, quite a few things have happened.
I’ve reached Ch. 18 of my book.
The book is still going! I’ve shared on my other blog how I’ve been struggling to find a balance. Post | My Book Is Still A Work In Progress
I’m excited because it’s reaching a point where my main character is able to meet up with some other characters that are CRUCIAL for the story to continue. I think once I reach this point, hopefully, the story will become easier to write.
I’ve started gardening.
I tried to garden last year and there were a few problems. What I planted grew, but I was extremely new to gardening, still am. This year, I am attempting to grow some vegetables in containers. It’s quite an adventure, and there are already problems. I’m considering blogging about my adventures. (Left To Right, Bunching Onions, Cucumber, Lavender and Chamomile).
I’m almost up to 2,000 followers on my main blog.
Last year, I reached 1,000 followers on my main blog, which was incredible. This year I think it would be awesome to reach 2,000.
I’ve been learning a lot about blogging, especially things I had to work on from last year. Mindset. When to not engage comments. When to NOT read posts because they would make me emotional. How to not focus on stats. A lot.
I’ve been trying out some new recipes.
Just this past weekend I made homemade matzoh, the bread the Jewish people made when they left Egypt. It was very sticky, and a little bit of a learning process. But I LOVED IT!
It’s like a cracker, airy and crisp. There is not much of a taste because the only two ingredients are water and flour! But I ate it with cream cheese and honey (like milk and honey…get it?)
I’m halfway through my granny square blanket project.
This blanket is not an easy task, and I do not crochet every day. I don’t know if I will finish it by the end of the year, but still, it’s halfway done. I reached the halfway point in April. This time around for the new squares I’m adding, they are a lot bigger, so I need less to make.
This is more for my main blog, but I’ve been working on some behind the scene stuff. It’s not really ready for me to talk about because I don’t know how far along I’ll get. Thus “secret” but more like “in the process of figuring out” xD.
Yeah, it’s been a busy couple of months. I share this because as you can see, all of these things I do at home. You do not have to leave the house to go out and do stuff.
