Yesterday, I met with a friend of mine -- multi-published author, Allie Boniface. She's up in my neck of the woods doing some author appearances and having a grand old time.
We met for lunch and talked for ... oh, 2 1/2 hours... pretty much non-stop. Her DH was there, too, and patiently let us gab. We talked about our beginnings (we "met" at WVU -- Allie was one of the first people I "met" in a romance writing class), and how far we've come since then. That was... oh... six years ago, maybe?
We talked about the future (she kept asking, "What are you working on NOW?" because she knows I'm busy, but wants to encourage me... thanks, A). We talked about her coming up here again to join me for appearances up here after "One Love for Liv" comes out in print.
We talked about LASR. We talked about her cats, my cat and dog. We talked about gardening. And the time flew by.
It pretty much made missing the RWA conference in SF worth it.
So, the older I get, the more I look like my sister. Isn't that funny? She's blonde and blue-eyed, but I think the resemblance is uncanny.
DD played a Wii yesterday. My neighbors watched her for me while I met with Allie, and they have one. DD had a blast, though she says her muscles are sore! LOL... And now, she has a Wii on her Christmas list.
I told her not to hold her breath.
I realized yesterday that the summer is nearly over! I have to get DD's letter of intent to homeschool in to the school district TODAY. How did the time go by so quickly?
I canned ten quarts of pickles on Tuesday. Ten. Quarts. And I still have more cucumbers than I know what to do with. That's okay -- I'd rather have too many, than not enough!
I've decided the voles are definitely gone. It's been quite some time, and still no holes. Now, I just need to redo the dirt pile that was my garden.
Why do weeds grow faster than the stuff I plant?
You Are a Chocolate Flavored Popsicle
You are hedonistic. For you, summer is all about indulging your five senses.
Some people may call you spoiled, but your simply the type of person who knows what they want.
You have sophisticated tastes. You like sweet things as much as the next person, but you don't like cheap treats.
You're much more drawn to the dramatic in all aspects of life - including dramatic desserts.
Hedonistic? ME? And, since when is a chocolate Popsicle "dramatic"? LOL...
