Happy Sunday everyone, I hope you are all having a wonderful and restful Sunday ❀

This month was a bit on the crazy side for me, with my mom being twice in the ER and the last time she was at the hospital, she was there for an entire week. I was with her for most of the hours of the day as the hospital care wasn’t that good, so I had to be with her and help her when she needed. Overall I am an extremely happy that my mom is out of the hospital and doing a bit better. I hope in time, she will do even better πŸ˜€

Since my mom is out of the hospital, I had a few days to stay at home, rest a lot and I was even able to finally sit down and do some editing and some writing (Yay).

From yesterday evening and today, I had a bit of fever, but I still wanted to sit down and do some work. I really missed my editing, lol (yep it came to that… I miss editing, lol).

The editing doesn’t go as fast as I want it to go, but I am chipping bit by bit, lol (that’s something, right?). I can’t tell you enough how happy it makes me to just to be able to sit down, grab my lonely laptop and write, plan or edit.

I really could use more moments like these (Woot Woot for that) ❀

writing, coffee n' notes

Tomorrow my mom and I are going to enroll her into an afternoon school, where she will take a few classes and I will be there with her (how cool of them to let me join the classes with her). I hope she will like it thereΒ  πŸ™‚ It’s only once a week on Sundays, but it sounds really niceΒ  πŸ˜‰

Hello everyone, happy Monday to you all πŸ™‚

Omg, where do I begin?

As always, there are so many things going on at once in my life. July and August (so far) are very much the same as the months before (hectic and crazy). But, I did manage to get things done. Maybe not as much as I wanted or planned, but hey… Some progress is still progress πŸ˜€

My Editing

I was able to sit down and edit. I didn’t reach my monthly goal of 50K (for July), but I got a nice amount done of 34K. I was happy I even got to do that, lol. Sadly August wasn’t a good start. Since the 1st of August, I only edited 4K.

I know… That’s just horrible. Listen to me, if you are like me and you love to write more freely and edit later – don’t! For the love of all that is human (lol), don’t! I learned this the hard way.

Room, Writing, Coffeen' Notes

I am more of a freestyle writer, all I want is to tell the story and give life to the characters and the world around them, while they adventure through many beautiful and painful moments.

Now… Editing all of this massive amount is hard (for me), but recently I’ve learned that if I write freely and then I take a day in the week where I only edit the stuff I’ve written before, it made the process move faster and better.

Now I know this may not work for all, but for me, it was a hard-learned lesson

Online Things

Well, recently I had a few issues with my social media/blog/my newsletter.

My blog stopped sending me people’s posts to my email (since mid-June) and I’m trying to fix that, but I haven’t yet been successful. Also, my scheduling with WordPress has gone crazy (again). I really don’t know what to do with it 😦 Every time I schedule, it just won’t post at the right time and date that I say or it just posts in the date that I’ve written, lol.

Sailor Moon, Coffee n' Notes, Crying

So if you have any advice, I would love any help (any) πŸ˜€

My email (Gmail), decided to mix all my filters, making me do the only thing I could do… Delete all my filters (lol), yep! For me this was horrible.

My newsletter (wow), there are so many things going on there, with the new rules of free emails and such things, I haven’t yet done anything about it. I have been trying, though. What I was able to do (finally), is change my newsletter’s layout and I am happy with how it looks (it looks shiny and pretty, lol).

So don’t forget to sign up πŸ˜€

Indoor things πŸ˜‰

With all the house cleaning that I had to do these past few weeks and believe me when I say, I had tons of cleaning and organizing to do.

Minions, Cleaning, Coffee n' Notes

But as life happens, I did months of cleaning in a less than 2 days, lol with almost no sleep at all πŸ˜€ Saturday and Sunday, I’ve slept for most of these days. But now, the house is clean and looks amazing ❀

I still have some unfinished projects around the house that we must take care of, but for now… I am happy and not so stressed about the house chores. It was so fun to just sit and edit and while looked around the house to see it clean and just go back into my editing (I call this a success) πŸ˜€

Okay, we are done for now, lol. Before this post will get too long.

It’s Monday and for most, it’s the start of the week. Here Sunday is the first day but I still had the Monday’s Blues, lol.

I was very slow today but after I had a good large iced tea, I managed to pick myself up and start working πŸ˜‰

With all that is going, plus planning a trip making me want to sleep the day away, but I can’t, lol. Too much to do. So after a good bag of Apple chips and refreshing iced tea, I started my day with 2 hours of editing.

floral

After I was done with the editing, I started to do some work around the house, just organized a few things, the dishes, made dinner and I still have some chores to finish before bedtime (life of an adult, lol) πŸ˜‰

The editing is going slow, but I’m determined to edit every day (even if it’s only a little bit each day). It’s been a year and a half and I’ve written 3 books and only edited one (more like half a book, lol). My big goal this year, is to finish editing my most recent manuscript by the end of the year, including the professional edit πŸ˜‰ I am putting a lot more focus on my editing and less of other but important things.

floral

Sadly Coffee n’ Notes is a little on the back burner (sorry about that). I miss blogging a lot (and I miss you guys even more), so I try to mostly blog about my random thoughts and some sort of weekly update πŸ˜‰ Hope you’re okay with that β™‘

Other than that, I’m trying to get even more organized with my time management and plan better, so keep an eye on my Instagram. I will be posting some pictures from my Bullet Journal Planner πŸ˜€

House ChoresGot to go and start doing some of my bedtime chores, lol (Yay me).

Hello everyone, happy Wednesday to you all πŸ™‚

I’ve missed you all so much, sorry for the long (and sudden) absence. I thought that this summer will be easy breezy, lol, but I guess there’s no such thing. Summer is here and the heat is just unbearable, so I’m trying to stay at home with the AC as much as I can.

However, this long blog absence was not for nothing, lol, I am editing my manuscript on each day I am at home for a few hours (until I see the words fly in front of me… not kidding, lol).

Typing

I also been trying to work hard on De-stressing and on my weight loss πŸ˜‰ Both goals are hard to achieve, lol. Not long ago I started a new journal, only, this time, it is more of a Junk-Journal (google it if you don’t know what it is). It is very close to Art-Journal but I just don’t use paint. It’s so much fun to craft and really help with stress and anxiety (a lot), I’ve missed that a lot, lol. I also recently started a Bullet-Journal, but I don’t think this style of planning is for me (but I’ll see how it goes) πŸ™‚

Grace Helbig, Relaxing

My mom is feeling much better, even though there were some ups and downs, but she is doing well now. I try to visit her every other day, leaving me a few days in the week where I can stay at home, relax and organize the huge mess my home is in right now πŸ˜‰

Can’t wait for the weekend to come.

That’s all with my ramblings, lol. I hope you are all having a great week (it’s almost weekend) πŸ™‚

Weekly Round Up

coffeennotesweekly

Happy Sunday everyone,

I hope you are all having an amazing holiday/Sunday and enjoying a bit of relaxation time. Celebrating with tons of gifts, yummy drinks, good food, and family ❀

I am still sick (wow, almost an entire month), but starting to feel a bit better. My throat still hurts but less than before so I can eat normal food and as the doctor suggested I am eating a sorbet ice cream (in this cold weather), which helps a lot with the burning sensation in my throat.

Other than that, I get to sleep a lot ( a bit more than I wanted) and I dream of the morning I will wake up all better πŸ˜€

So get comfy, warm (and safe), grab something yummy and enjoy this short Weekly round-up here at Coffee n’ Notes

My holiday and weekend were weird (very weird).

If you followed my twitter, you saw that I went to my doctor and did some tests. Then at Christmas Eve, my doctor called me and said that I must go to the E.R. due to my Throat Infection and my Addison’s disease.

So as you see in the picture… I spent a while in the E.R. Luckily after a few hours they sent me home, yay me πŸ™‚

After that, I slept a lot. All I want that it will end soon (fingers crossed) πŸ˜€

Today I did feel a bit better and I could finally start eating normal food and not moosh, lol. I think this illness is the longest I’ve had in a few years (about 16 days or more and still going). I can’t wait to shake this off and heal.

Btw, on a different subject, I started to put some changes around my blog. I hope you’ll like them (more changes will come slowly) πŸ™‚

Well, I better finish with my ramblings πŸ˜‰

Happy Sunday (and Happy Holidays) to you all,

I hope that you are all feeling good and are able to relax a bit ❀

I am still ill, but feeling a lot better. My fever broke, I’m sleeping a lot, lol and my throat still hurts (meds and antibiotics… yummy) πŸ˜€ Spent my week mostly sleeping and not writing/editing (so sad…). My Mom got ill as well, lol and hubby… well, he is still hanging by the thread, lol (I hope he will not get sick and miss Star Wars on Thursday (so wish him luck on that) πŸ™‚

Here’s a quick round-up of the posts that have been featuring on Coffee n’ Notes this past week.

Hello everyone and good evening,

I am sick again, lol.

I went to a holiday (Hanukkah) party at the home my mom is in. It was very fun, but a few of the visitors were coughing a lot. The next day my mom and I went to the city for some urgent errands.

Later that day I was with high fever (oops). But… Lucky me I know what I need to do, so I doubled my meds, took my antibiotics, Vitamin C and something for the pain (my throat hurts a lot).

Tomorrow I have an appointment with my doctor, but my fever broke (yay) so I hope this flu thingy will go away fast πŸ˜€

Hope you are all having a nice Wednesday πŸ™‚

P.s. Today is hubby’s Birthday and because I’m sick, we are celebrating by eating takeout and watching the Critical Role πŸ˜€

Happy Sunday to you all,

I hope you all had (or still having) a wonderful Sunday ❀ My plan for today was to write. That is all, lol, just write as much as I can and as fast as I can πŸ˜€

Sorry for the long absence here, I wasn’t feeling very good and I barely had any moment to just sit and write to you. I think I was not feeling well due to massive exhaustion, which led me to add half a pill more to my daily dosage, lol.

All is better now. I have rested well, wrote a lot and tried (very poorly) to overcome the hurricane of a mess in my house.

Nano is almost over and I had only two days to finish Nano with the minimum of 50,000 words. Yesterday I was at 32,000 and today I wrote like the wind, lol, bringing my total words to 42,500 ❀

Nano

(I wrote 10.5K words today, omg)

I do hope that tomorrow I will be able to sit down and write the rest of the words I need to WIN NaNoWriMo (Oh yeah) πŸ˜€

This month was so busy, but I was able to make a small writing plan for the next year, only this time it will go nicely (I hope) with all that I need to do. I’ve also changed my business plan, tweaked it a bit, so it will fit better with my hectic everyday life, lol.

I bought a few books, read a few online articles, blog posts and saw a few YouTube videos (you know, research), all so that they will help me plan better and think better of what I want and how I want to achieve it.

After Nano I am going go back to the first manuscript and start my content editing, I hope not to find many plot holes, lol πŸ˜€

I hope you are all enjoying your day and if you are doing Nano, I hope you are motivated to finish (so go back to your writing now, lol) and to all that Won Nano, congrats to you all, that is such a wonderful achievement πŸ™‚

I can’t wait…

Hello all, I hope you are all having a beautiful and nice Thursday πŸ˜‰

I am writing this from my car, while I’m waiting for my mom and I felt like sharing a few random things from my day and week. This week was so busy, I barely had any time to take a deep breath. I was out every day from the early mornings until the late evenings and even though I am more than tired, it was a good week. I even had some time to find a few of the things I wanted (office supplies mostly).

Today though, I woke up with some sniffles and dry throat so I really hope I didn’t catch something. I really don’t have the time to be sick, lol. This month is so busy, busy, busy that I can’t lose a day to illness, lol.

Nano is not moving forward so far, but I guess Sundays will be my huge writing days and I am okay with that. If I can write 10K in one day, maybe… just maybe I can write more, lol, but my plan is to write this Friday night as well, so will see how it goes πŸ˜‰

Today hubby and I are finally going to see The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2.Β (Woot Woot ) Β I am more than excited and giddy about this movie that I can’t wait to see it πŸ˜€ I can finally see how they’ve made the ending β™‘ I love the books so much and I’ve re-read them for each movie that came out (so you know I’m a fan, lol).

I hope you all well and enjoying a relaxing evening and I will share more pictures on my Instagram, while we wait for the movie to start
