My friend Heidi has been doing a link-up over at her blog called Three Things Thursday. You are supposed to just list or talk about 3 different things. They can be random things or things that go together in a theme. I thought I might try participating again today and I’m trying to give this a chance so we’ll see where this goes. If you all like it, I’ll keep participating. Let me know so I can decide.
1. I am currently working on a nonfiction book that will be published very soon. It’s called, Simply Clean–Frugal Homemade Cleaners. This one will be published under my name, Brenda Emmett. I plan on making it available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iStore, and a few other places. I will also be prepping it to actually be printed and not just an ebook, though the ebook will come out first. It’s been a long process with this one as everything is technical. I have discovered I prefer to write fiction. But the main reason I am doing this particular book is so that I have all my cleaning recipes in a book format and not just in a binder, where they are now. I have a tendency to misplace my binder off and on. This will be harder for me to lose. So those who get the book will benefit from my need as well. It should go live within the next few days. I am currently waiting on the cover design to arrive in my inbox and then I’ll be ready for publishing.
2. We changed our Film and Lit class already. The curriculum I found just isn’t working for us. So I did what all great homeschooling moms do, and we scrapped it. We are now doing our own thing and we are enjoying the class so much more. We’ve been currently doing a unit on The Hero’s Journey. We have watched Napoleon Dynamite, Star Wars, Mulan, and we will be watching Avatar the first of next week. I’ve been making Chandler do a paper on each movie, and then he’ll take those 4 papers and will do a compare/contrast essay on them. Then we’ll move on to another subject. I’m leaning toward a study of Robin Williams and some of his movies, keeping in mind we’ll only be watching the clean ones. No rated R movies in this house or class. It should be fun.
3. My dog, Panda, likes to be bathed. She has started trying to get into the bathtub when she is feeling dirty. I’m not quite sure what to think of this yet. I think it is a good thing, right? She is such a little princess.
