Good! re the meetings, Valia / @valiantarcher. Smile I know sometimes my hubby wishes there were not so many meetings so that he could just keep on working. Giggle  

I bet he does. Giggle My recurring work meetings happen on Mondays, so while Monday can be a bit choppy as far as making progress goes, it's nice to have most meetings out of the way after one day.
Well, sort of - I finished the book the day it was due (and then returned it before the library opened the next day, shhh).
I'm glad to hear you're enjoying all the snow! Grin (Though I would expect nothing less. Wink ) Are you supposed to get any more systems soon?
And I agree about the benefits of masks helping one stay warm during the winter. Giggle

@Ryadian, I suppose I can understand why adventurers would mainly be interested in meals. But what about snacks? Giggle Hurrah for work slowing down enough for you to be able to get back into a good pace! My schedule is still pretty heavy, but a little less hectic. (And someone did fill me in - but I got it right before the meeting...but we survived. XD )
And, yes, that book was Rhythm of War. Giggle It felt like an endurance test to get through it, but overall worthwhile. Oooh! How long is the audiobook? It's gotta be...what...over 30 hours or something? I'm sure it's a lot of hours to get through regardless.
All the best with figuring out your niece's present! Grin

Well, this is true. 😉 I'm sure there are more desserts in there, I just haven't actually finished reading it ( Blush ), and I'm going off what I remember. Though, snacks would be a bit more handy, because I want to try my hand at making some of these when we can have our gaming group in person again, and snacks would be easier to handle!

The audiobook for The Way of Kings is 45 hours long. (I thought The Silmarillion was long at just under 15 hours!) One of the reasons why I haven't... quite finished it yet. I apparently have about 22 hours left. Giggle But yes, that must've been quite the endurance test! I'm really impressed that you managed to get it done before you had to return it! Applause Whew Praise  

I ultimately decided to go with a Playmobil set. (Playmobil is a toy that's kind of like LEGO in that it comes in a variety of sets and characters, but with much less focus on building.) I adored Playmobil when I was a little older than she is now, and I let my niece play with my old Playmobil when she came over last... and she seemed to like it. 😀 So I'm getting her some of her own. (It's a unicorn-based set and she looooves unicorns, so I think it's going to be a hit. 😉 )

I recently set up my computer so that I can't access certain distracting websites for 3 hours a night, and man, it's done wonders for my productivity. Giggle I'm actually managing to get some writing done! (Granted, there's also a certain game I bought recently that tends to get played first, but hey, one step at a time.) Right now I'm working out some kinks in the first book in a series I want to write. I feel like I keep coming back to the same problems, but I'm hoping that with some focus, I'll actually makes some progress this time.

@Ryadian, no worries! I find it hard to sit and read a cookbook cover to cover (usually too many good recipes). Giggle Oh, wow!! 45 hours! That's more than a full workweek of time. o_O But, hey, you're over halfway then! Grin Sounds like a good call on your niece's gift, especially with the unicorns! Grin I don't think we ever had Playmobil sets, but I know the name and it looks like fun.
Congrats on setting up your computer differently and the resulting productivity! It's good to hear you're managing to get some writing done. Smile I hope the stumbling block in the story gets resolved with some focus. What's the game that's currently being distracting? Giggle

Work is still being pretty crazy. I really do think it will get better in a week since that's the final deadline for my main project being in-house; other things will be crazy, but those usually result in a crazy day or two at a time, not for weeks on end. Giggle I've just gotta hang in there until then!

*enters and sneezes from all the dust*

Figuring out how this quote thing works. Sheesh. What do they teach them at these forums?

Poking my head in. Realized I completely missed checking in on my 16th Anniversary with NarniaWeb. I ought be ashamed of myself.

 

Greetings to all!

@ceppault Ditto! Congratulations on your 16th anniversary!! How do you feel now that your account is old enough to drive? Giggle It's wonderful to see you in the Square again. 🙂

Yeah... that has a lot to do with why I haven't finished it yet. Giggle (I've been stuck on that 22 hour mark for a few months now.) I do plan to finish it, eventually, but I need to get through my pile of library books first. 😛 The Playmobil was a big hit! 😀 (Helped by the fact that my brother got her some, too. 😉 ) 

Thanks! 🙂 It is really nice to have the creative juices flowing again. The game that's been taking up far too much of my time lately is technically a series of games in the Ace Attorney franchise. Giggle They're basically games where you play as a lawyer who has to defend his clients by pointing out contradictions in witness's testimonies (in the world's most absurd legal system, and they come just shy of admitting that in-universe). For some strange reason, I've found myself wanting to write a lot of murder mysteries lately.... Giggle (Spoiler alert: I'm no good at writing murder mysteries.)

Good luck hanging in there at work this week! It's good to at least hear that there's an end in sight. You can do it! Applause Applause Hug

Going back a few posts: yay for delicious snickerdoodles, @ryadian. Btw, it wasn't until I joined NarniaWeb that I heard of these! Blush I don't know if they're even a 'thing' in Canada. Giggle

And what did you decide on for your niece's b-day present? Smile Oh! I just saw your response: Playmobil has a very good name. Is she enjoying the set? Oh yes, she is, I read later. Giggle Grin
Good for you for taking action in not being able to access certain sites. And hurrah for getting more writing done! Grin  

Hug to you, @valiantarcher, in all the work challenges. May you continue to see progress there. For sure, some days can be better than others.

Haha, I have heard this hopeful statement many times from my hubby. I have come to the conclusion that work is pretty much always crazy. LOL Hug Seriously, though, a few times are of less intensity than others, but more often than not, this is not the case. Tongue  

@ceppault, it's always such a fun and lovely surprise when you pop back in the good ol' Square. Hug

LOL That cracked up me, Rya! And DITTO on the congratulations to cep! Party

We have had loads of snow this winter (mainly since Christmas), and a lot of cold, so the snow has stayed and increased. Dancing It has been a great winter here in SW Ontario. I must admit, 'though, as the days get longer, I am going to really miss the longer nights for walking and stargazing under the night's sky. Star  

Still waiting to have Christmas with our family. All in good (and safe) time. Yes, the Christmas decorations are all still up. Giggle
