Good day with sunshine, good day plenty of sunshine….

27 Apr
Carol Murdock gave me a Renee Award – and I have been horrid as usual in thanking her and doing anything I was supposed to do…and she is such a lovely person.
Angie gave me a Zombie Chicken award and I messed that up, too –forgive me friends!

Just a fast drop by before I get to work.

I was interviewed on Riding With the Top Down …fun!
Jake finally quit moping because he missed Kimmi and her Beloved. He stayed at Kimmi’s beloved’s feet most of the time: he knows good people when he sees them.
I am becoming facinated with this Amazon monster. Yes yes, I know, I said I would not pay attention to it–and I am not, no really, I am not…teeheehee….but my publishers sent me the weekend stats. I simply can’t figure the system out. I went from 80,000 to 50,000 and then end of last week to 400,000, then yesterday I was around 20,000, today back to 80,000…laughing! How does that much change in a rating occur within hours?….! It’s all a big mystery that I don’t have time to unravel–writing is where I’m putting my focus. Yes, authors should just shrug their shoulders and worry about the words, the language, the characters – and do as I have been doing: Bask in the wonderful words and reviews found right here in Blog Land. I feel grateful and excited and happy! I’ll be posting more about that as the days go on, as I did below for Deb Leblanc.
Now, finish my Deep Creek Blend coffee, and it’ll be warm enough to work on VK2 on the porch today – glorious! Sunshine and everything turning green!
Now, everyone – go DO the day!

    Your post is great. You see the humor in life and that is key to our well being. Glad you have sunshine as the sky is overcast here, but I know the sun is behind those clouds, being ever so patient!

    So very excited to hear that you’re working on VK2 and that you have lots of lovely sunshine to do it in! Sunshine seems to make everything just a bit sweeter, doesn’t it?!

    I’m so glad our blogger paths have crossed. I will look forward to reading your archives and following your blog.And first thing tomorrow…I’ll be heading to our local bookstore to purchase “Tender Graces.” I just read some of the reviews and when someone is compared to Sue Monk Kidd and Barbara Kingsolver? Two of my favorite authors? I can’t wait to get that book in my hands.Enjoy this wonderful weather.
