This and That

Since there is nothing so well worth having as friends, never lose a chance to make them. ~Francesco Guicciardini

Rain today. Actually, we really needed it so I'm trying not to be annoyed -- but to have it on the weekend is bad. DH gets VERY cranky when he's stuck inside on his day off.

I have to apologize to my bloggie friends -- This week has been nuts between starting school and finishing up our anniversary celebration at LASR/WC and I haven't had much chance to come visit. I opened my Google reader yesterday and about passed out. I haven't forgotten you! This weekend is going to be nuts -- we're having a two-day chat in the LASR Yahoo group and the WC Yahoo group so I'm going to be dealing with that both days. But Monday? Hopefully things will be back to normal. A little.

I started reading a new cozy mystery series a week or so back, and enjoyed book one, so I'll share. It's the Coffeehouse Mystery series by Cleo Coyle. I started book two last night and I like her stories, but MAN does she make me feel declasse for the coffee I drink, lol. Her website is a serious time suck, too. Lots of neat stuff there. Enjoy!

And, now, I need to finish my other online duties because Judy and I are hosting the first hour of chat at 9 a.m. (EST). If you folks are looking for some fun and prizes, you should check it out. And we're giving away coffee mugs at the end of the first hour to one lucky chatter. We have prizes all day (autographed books, eBooks, free LASR/WC advertising and LASR/WC gear), plus our author/publisher hosts are also having giveaways. It's going to be tons of fun.

I may need to sleep for a week after.


Ceri did the unforgivable yesterday: She mentioned NaNoWriMo. Dear heavens. I may end up doing my own version of it -- I think trying for 50,000 words is setting myself up for failure with the workload I have. But, I think I'm going to go for 500 words a day (15,000 words in November) and host it on the JaNoWriMo blog. Anyone up for that? And, hey, if you're doing NaNo, you're welcome to share over there, too. I may change my tune by November -- maybe I'll be feeling more ambitious, but somehow I doubt it. LOL...


Your Soul Is Connected to the Fall

You are a somewhat sensitive soul with a tough exterior. You are street smart and wise about the world.

You have the heart of a poet, but you're not too eager to let anyone else see it.

You are very creative and deeply talented. You are still looking for the perfect outlet for your expression.

You embrace change and think the cycles of life are beautiful. You don't shrink away from the darker elements of life.

That part about "you embrace change"? SO not right... some of the rest is. Still, I'm a summertime gal.

How do you keep up with everything? I couldn't even begin to remember all the things you are involved in. Hope your weekend is actually rewarding for you.

This is me? Who knows. It's what came up.

Your Soul Is Connected to the Spring

You are an optimistic, eternally hopeful person. No matter how dark things get, you always see the light.
You are open-minded and always up for a fresh outlook on life. You don't cling to ideas or beliefs.

You are sweet hearted and have good intentions. Even though you've seen a lot in life, you remain innocent.
People see you as playful and even a bit airy. You feel free to be yourself, and that's a beautiful thing.

I don't know how you do all that you do, but I would be tired and looking for a 48-hour day.

Your Soul Is Connected to the Winter

You approach life with a zen-like calm that other people envy. Nothing rattles you.

You are smart, thoughtful, and very serious. You don't stress out, but you don't take much lightly.

You like to keep to yourself, and you've been called shy - even if you don't consider yourself that way.

You prefer a cozy, quiet life filled with ideas, books, and maybe a few friends.

That is mostly accurate. I am shy except around good friends.

Have a good Saturday.

Cleo Coyle also writes the ghost mystery series I've been reading, just under the name Alice Kimberly. :)

Have fun today! I, too, have no idea how you keep up with it all. You have my admiration!
Supposedly by Soul Is Connected to the Fall as well. While Fall is my favorite season EVER, I detest change with a passion. I prefer routine and order. Oh, well.

I hope you have a delightful day!
