- I’ve been back from Germany for over a week, so pretty much over jet lag. I have a system down that has sped up my jet lag recovery by a week (I’m one of those travel wusses who travels a lot.) First, I don’t tell anyone I’m back, though my closest friends know, and they know not to bug me for a week. 🙂 Second, I do as little as possible, just the basics: insure my truck, go to the bank, buy groceries, vacuum and dust, laundry – this is spread out over a few days. The rest of the time I WATCH TV. I mean major binge. I PVR Big Bang Theory, Survivor, Elementary, Father Brown and I watch Netflix – at the moment it’s Miss Fisher’s Mysteries. Third: I sleep as much as I need to. I’m grateful I’m an empty nester and have the luxury of time.
While I’m on Australian mysteries, I watched Doctor Blake Murder Mysteries to get over my jet lag on the Germany side.
2. It’s good to be back home. I went on my weekly hike up Knox Mountain.
3. OH, THAT ELECTION – true to my commitment to not get political on social media, that’s all I’m going to say. Not that I don’t have opinions, I do. November 8 was also the day I flew home for over 14 hours, and had a flood in my basement. Fun times.
4. The thing about doing nothing for almost a week is that you get really behind. Most of the work I do requires a clear head, and I have to wait for the mental fog to lift. When I don’t, I do stupid things like run a FB ad with a bad link – true story 🙁
I’m busy finishing up Twinkle Little Star – A Nursery Rhymes Suspense Book #4. So excited to see that one on the shelves.
And, if you’re interested in leaving reviews and also like to read Christmas themed inspirational romance novellas, PEACE & GOODWILL (by my pen name Hope Franke) is Free on Amazon this week.
