I am surprised I've kept up with this hop for 33 weeks now. Granted I missed the beginning ones, but I've been on track since then. So the MFRWauthor topic this week is what do you do to recharge.

While they are in school I recharge by simply having some peace and quiet. That is huge for me since things get noisy in my house often. Once they are on the bus I do my workout, get ready for the day, have a cup of tea, and social media. Now that the first draft is done and I've gotten some feedback, I've been working on edits during the day. It's nice to have a quiet house so I can think with just some good music playing in the background.

I don't get to go as often as I'd like because it can be pricey. My husband loves that I love the spa because that means he can never be wrong with getting me a gift certificate. The place I frequent the most is about twenty-thirty minutes from us. He'll get me some package and in between treatments I hang out in the best room in the place. THE QUIET ROOM! It's great. Low lighting, comfortable chaise loungers with blankets, and soft 'spa' music. I can sit in there and completely relax. I know most people thing Disney World is the happiest place on earth, but for me, that quiet room is. Can you tell I'm not a fan of noise?
After I published Fiendish, I used the gift certificate he'd given me a year earlier as a reward for getting my first book done. I've since told him that needs to be a thing for each book. Luckily he agreed and luckily for him I'm a slow writer so it's not like it'll be happening more than once a year. And that's being generous with my writing speed.

I don't drink all that often, but I do like to enjoy a nice cold glass of white every so often. Chardonnay, Moscato, and Riesling are my top picks. I know people will say that reds have some medical benefits, but yeah, I'm not a fan. I like the sweeter wines.
Chocolate...well no real explanation needed. I will go through a bag of almond Hershey Kisses in a day if I'm really stressed. They are kind of addictive. As I start to tackle edits for Not Broken, my chocolate consumption has increased, but I figure that's slightly better than me drinking my way through the edits.
So there you have it. How do you recharge your batteries?
