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 I’d give it a try. Wasn’t for me and didn’t work out and that’s cool. No real reason to blog about it, but if you’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. I’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 – Nice Girls Do. And not only that, but I’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? Don’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 Samhain’s site and see my blurb about the book.

When I got home finally tonight, I threw my hair up in a ponytail…and discovered a VERY white streak going through it.

Nice. Time for Ms. Clairol!

I think it’s because I’ve had so much stress in my life lately that I have more gray hair than I should. Or maybe it’s because – ahem – I have a birthday coming up and this is Nature’s way of saying, “HEY! You’re getting really :censored: old.” :talktohand:

At any rate, when I get paid this week, it’ll be time for some personal grooming. I’m getting my hair cut, my eyebrows waxed, and a pedicure. Happy birthday to me. Early. At least, this is the plan. There’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?

I’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 I’d like to try and take.

That’s about all I have to report at this time. Is it Friday yet??

I wish you all could be inside my head. The conversation is sparkling.
