I found a cool spooky forest with lights bouncing around and had to add it. It reminds me of Alvor. Too bad the neo counter isn't retroactive. The visitor count started yesterday.
Last week held some strangeness. Thought I'd compile a list of all the random things.
*got to see my sister who surprised me that she was in town. She's headed to the Himalayas next (she thinks). And, my brother took us out to lunch besides. First time for everything.
*my sister wandered into a bookstore downtown and accidentally found my book. They were using it as a backdrop for a sculpture she was admiring. She was so amazed by the experience that she took a picture AND took me to the store to see it.
*where randomness #3 happened. My brother bought a "reading" for me. Found out I am unconditionally loving as well as passionate. Oh, and that my books are my "other kids".
*got a super nice rejection letter followed by a super mean one from another publisher.
*went camping. The only mosquito bite I got was on my eyelid. Good thing that mosquito was killed before it could finish the job.
*writers group... and hours of editing after. Can't decide if I should keep working on the story I'm writing or just can it. Still deciding.
*found out that my niece's bridal shower this coming Saturday- Very excited to see everyone!!!!
*still can't believe I get to present at the SCBWI writers conference here in Boise. Very cool. And, as Murphy's Law would have it, it's the same day as our National Guard performance for the Boise Cloggers. Yes, I will be doing both.
*Personal triumph for the day.... my kids' bus stop has officially been moved to my house!!! Yeah!!! They're never going to miss the bus again. It has been down the street where my son has been seen racing the bus to the stop, and sometimes losing. When he loses the race, even though the bus drives right past him running, he still misses the bus. I'm truly pumped about this new development, and school doesn't even start for another month.
That's it for today. Hoping this week's randomness has lots of happiness sprinkled in.
Hopeful or Hopeless?
