Fruit Cake-Tuesday 15th pm

Time for a cappuccino. It's knock off time.
Well after a glorious long weekend, it was back to the drawing board today with a total word count of 26.842 in ten writing days. I'm again bushed, but hey I'm enjoying the challenge immensely.

Okay so how come when one is engaged in writing a call from the other half said, "I was looking forward to your fruit cake." Statement came about over the weekend when we came home from a lovely dinner.

Oh yes, can you imagine that? My writing, my cleaning, washing, keeping visitors entertained, and the other hand whipping up a fruit cake. lol... geesih.

So guess what, it's in my schedule this week to make a fruit cake. It really doesn't take long. Its the thinking about it that does. lol...

I'm calling it a day, well there's still time later to check out websites and blogs. But cooking dinner. I suppose I should. Dum de dum.. afer all, I have to eat as well I guess, and I don't want to lose weight. Hey guess what you chocoholics, I actually ate, get this:

ONE WHOLE BOX OF AFTER DINNER MINTS lol 

before our guests arrived for the long weekend, so we had to buy more. Hubby said what happened to them.. lol I answered, in my tummy. My tummy just had to have them. lol.. but hey, after all these years, I didn't mind that tiny slice of chocolate melted over mint. It's quiet yummy isn't it? :) So are you proud of me. :) Yah! I might be joining the chocoholics anonymous club. lol So am I cool now, that I have acquired a small taste for chocolate. :)

Anyhow, how is everyone going with their word count. I guess I should get on over to the google group to find out. :)

Until next time, take care and be good, well as good as you understand the word.

Suzanne :) Who is thinking an after dinner mint, sounds just what she wants and a piece of fruit cake would go down well with my cappuccino. Oh damn.. why didn't I cook one earlier.

Actually I was just thinking, that word count better get up to reach my goal by the end of the month. Oh, that's right there's plenty of time when you are sleeping. :)

Good grief- You've finally gone over to the dark side- the chocolate side!!!! You rebel you!
The Cappuccino and fruit cake does sound yummy... if there's any left you can always bring it along to the next writers meeting so we can sample it... just sayin!
HUGE congrats on the word count- you're doing so well!!

Are you making a fruitcake and sending it over here to me? Or you could hand deliver it!!! LOL

Kaye Manro said...

Good luck with the word count Suzanne!

And that fruit cake does sound good... a whole box of chocolate mints?? You sound worse than me!

(Loved your take on the Outback at Shelley's blog today.)

Yay on the word count. IMHO fruit cake is a necessity when writing so much. A girl has to get her sugar rush from somewhere...Caroline x
