You have made it all the way here, so you may as well sit down, take a minute to look around, and enjoy. What you will find, depends on the day and my mood. You just never can tell.

The 5th of May

Happy Cinco De Mayo!  Or otherwise known as:  My birthday!  How many people do you know get to celebrate an actual Fiesta on their Birthday?  I like to pretend that the day of my birth was so awe-some that they had to create a holiday for the world to celebrate.  

Enjoy the week everyone.  My plans are:

1.  Writing – Duh.  I am slow but steadily making progress on my WIP.  Halfway through the first rough draft and heading forward.  I find the 2nd half of a book is almost harder to write than the first.  Yes, there is more action and there is more excitement, but it’s also where I spend the most time trying to tie up all the edges and trying to complete the plot circles for little side adventures.  The 2nd half is more fun, but it is harder for me.  We will see how much progress I make this week.

2.  Outside work.  We were able to get the front lawn mowed, but the back is way to long to do with the little push mower we have.  Why do we have a push mower with our acreage?  We like the exercise of.  I don’t know why, we just do.  Plus the push mower makes the lawn look so much tidier than the tractor does.  However, the first real cut of the season will need the use of a tractor so, we will haul it out and get it done.  

3.  Looking for Arts and Books Festivals to sign up for.  I see a lot of new ones popped up this year that I didn’t get in on.  I am making sure that doesn’t happen next year.

Nothing much else to report.  I will be having a fiesta tonight for dinner.  Then to top off the great day, a new season of “24” begins tonight. Woo Hoo!  Jack Bauer…how can you not love that guy?  

Have a great week!



  1. Happy Birthday! I can't believe with your acreage you use a push lawn mower. Are you nuts!? Glad you're plugging along so well on your WIP, that's fantastic. And goodluck finding some festivals! I'll let you know how mine this weekend goes.

    1. Thanks Allyn for the birthday wishes. As over half of our acreage is a forest, it really isn't all that bad.
