Thoughts On Being Boring & A Blogging Break

As I sat down to write a post for you all today, all I could do was yawn. And that wasn't just because I hadn't had any coffee yet. It's because life on our boat is pretty BORING lately. Tickety Boo is still broken and until we get her keel repaired, all other boat projects are on hold. No point in spending time and money on other stuff if we're not sure if she'll float again.

So that means that there's nothing exciting to report. Not that boat projects are all that exciting, but they're a lot more interesting than telling you all about what I've been working on in the meantime. {Spoiler alert: It's a Mollie McGhie prequel novella all about how she met Scooter at the roller derby. Yes, Mollie used to be on a roller derby team. Scary thought.}

Because I don't want to BORE you and I don't want to keep on yawning as I write blog posts, I'm going to take a little summer blogging break. I'll be back on Wednesday, August 7th for IWSG day. Hopefully, we have some forward momentum on our boat by then and I'll have exciting things to report.

Hope everyone is having a great summer (or winter if you're in the southern hemisphere) and I'll see you back here next month.

  1. Oh! What happens if the boat can't be fixed?

    I won't be posting until the next IWSG either. Two cons and a seminar will keep me busy until then.

  2. I hope you have insurance. Not sure if you talked about boat insurance. I hope it can be fixed.

    I'll see you nest month. Enjoy your break.

    Have a fabulous day, Ellen. ♥

  3. I will miss you on Monday and Wednesday. Although I don't always comment, I always check in to see what is up.

    A blogging break is good. I wish I could just catch my blog up so I could take a break.

    Can't wait to hear what Mollie's Roller Derby name is!

  4. A prequel? You may not be excited, but I am. That's a story I can't wait to read!!

  5. Sorry to hear you are still on the hard and likely to be for a bit longer. A break can bring back the sparkle sometimes, so i hope you have a great one.

  6. Hi Ellen.
    I've taken a break from blogging, the only problem with that is it's very boring.:)
    As far as your home is concerned, things always work out for the good, eventually. God has placed hard times, or stressful times, right alongside good times. So all you have to do is wait and enjoy the break for now, things are already changing.
    Blessings and peace from Geoff in Johannesburg South Africa. (Southern Hemisphere and yes, cold.)

  7. Enjoy your break!The prequel sounds like a great idea. :)

  8. Enjoy the break. We all need one now and then. Sending good vibes to get Tickety Boo afloat soon.

  9. I hope your boat gets fixed soon so you're not so bored! :)

  10. i feel ya! here’s to not being bored—made me get out and visit some blogs!

  11. Sorry to hear that, Ellen. I hope the boat is fixable. We are in the same position...no faring forth this year as our engine has to be replaced and as we are doing most of it ourselves, it’s taking time...still there are other adventures, and I’m writing too. Happy summer to you!

  12. Sorry to hear that, Ellen. I hope you can fix your boat soon!

  13. I can't believe Tickety Boo is still landlocked! That prequel sounds awesome, my dear. Best wishes.

  14. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
    liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
    reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
    became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
    ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC (www.ultimatelifeclinic.com) in March, 2020. Their
    treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
    the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
    treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
