Odds and Ends
Quote of the day:
To live in the presence of great truths and eternal laws, to be led by permanent ideals – that is what keeps a man patient when the world ignores him, and calm and unspoiled when the world praises him.
– Honore De Balzac
Well as it turns out my something big fell through. It was a long shot anyway, but I figured Iâ€™d give it a try. Wasnâ€™t for me and didnâ€™t work out and thatâ€™s cool. No real reason to blog about it, but if youâ€™re curious, you can email me. 😉
I finished the edits on MAGIC yesterday. Got chapters 2 and 3 done. Now I just need to package up my partial and get it in the mail. Iâ€™m shooting for Saturday because (a) I get paid on Friday and (b) I have a box to return as it is. So a trip to the post office is definitely in order.
I also finished the rewrite of chapters 1 and 2 of the second book in the Coffee House Chronicles â€“ Nice Girls Do. And not only that, but Iâ€™ve finished the edits for the second season of Ransom & Fortune. So good progress there. And may I just say that season two is going to rock your pants? Donâ€™t miss it!
Got the thumbnail up on the sidebar for Talk Dirty To Me. See? Be sure and click on it so you can go directly to Samhainâ€™s site and see my blurb about the book.
When I got home finally tonight, I threw my hair up in a ponytailâ€¦and discovered a VERY white streak going through it.
Nice. Time for Ms. Clairol!
I think itâ€™s because Iâ€™ve had so much stress in my life lately that I have more gray hair than I should. Or maybe itâ€™s because â€“ ahem â€“ I have a birthday coming up and this is Natureâ€™s way of saying, â€œHEY! Youâ€™re getting really :censored: old.â€ :talktohand:
At any rate, when I get paid this week, itâ€™ll be time for some personal grooming. Iâ€™m getting my hair cut, my eyebrows waxed, and a pedicure. Happy birthday to me. Early. At least, this is the plan. Thereâ€™s always some monkey wrench that gets thrown my way and I never quite get everything accomplished I want to. So perhaps just the eyebrow waxing, eh?
Iâ€™ve officially put myself on a budget. This will be difficult but I think I can do it. I want to start saving up some money for my retreat later this year. Plus I have another trip Iâ€™d like to try and take.
Thatâ€™s about all I have to report at this time. Is it Friday yet??
