On the Lake

Posted by on October 27, 2014

Happy Monday y’all!

How was your weekend?
on the lake
We took our kids for their first boat ride, thanks to our friends. It was a beautiful, warm day here in Texas. I cannot tell you how long it has been since I’ve gone canoeing. LOVE gliding across the water. So peaceful! I tell you, I should have been a mermaid!

And then we ended the evening back at our house around a campfire and s’mores.

Weird thought of the night: Why are fires (the small, contained ones, that is) so…mesmerizing? So…calming? Or am I just weird? And that probably explains why I can’t be a mermaid. Ha!

Well, I am ready to tackle this week. Are you?on the lake 2

Three things on my to-do list:

  • Edit five chapters
  • Parent/Teacher conference
  • Make an astronaut costume for my son

Oh, and I can’t wait to kick off our 2014 Favorite Reads Giveaway this Friday. Fun, fun!

So, what’s on your to-do list this week?

Hope you have a great rest of the week!

    I hope you got to rest! There’s something about camping, getting out into nature, that is so refreshing.

    You’re not weird… or, well, perhaps I’m just weird with you. That’s a possibility, I have oft been noted for my own brand of weirdness. Fires are truly mesmerizing. Something about them is just hypnotic.

    You could be a mermaid like Ariel… “What’s a fire and why does it… what’s the word… burn?”

    On my to-do list this week:

    1. Keep my children alive.
    2. Attempt to finish my Beauty and the Beast short story… so I can get it edited and submitted before the deadline!

      Ha, thanks Jenelle. “When’s it my turn….”

      I’m amazed you are attempting to write so soon after having your baby. My brain was so sleep deprived, I had trouble putting two coherent words together, much less a book. ha! More power to ya!

        Well, there’s no guarantee that this story even makes sense… but a lot of the “great” classical authors did most of their writing while on opium… so… sleep deprivation could be just what my writing career needs!

          Oh my goodness, you are hilarious. I keep thinking what my “opium” might be…but I don’t think it is sleep deprivation. ha! 😉

I love hearing from you!
