April 18

Friday, Apr 18

This is my future son-in-law Jeremy’s birthday. Happiest of happies, sweetheart.

It is also the anniversary, as legend has it anyway, of Paul Revere’s famous ride. “The British are coming! The British are coming!”

I think somebody ought to warn Britain, this time. My sister Sally and I are headed in their direction, to spend a week celebrating a milestone birthday–hers. Shouldn’t someone ride through the streets, carrying a lantern and shouting, “Sally and Linda are coming! Sally and Linda are coming!”???

Absolutely. Harrod’s should definitely be warned.

Sally tells me she plans to eat fish and chips every single day while we’re there. (I wouldn’t want to be at HER Weight Watchers meeting when she steps on that scale again!) Speaking of WW, I was up .4 last night. No big deal. I was on program all week, but there are always fluctuations.

Plans for this fabulous Friday include finishing Chapter 11 (or is it 12?) of the new book, then printing out what I have so far and doing what I call a read-through-and-revise, and doing more art work. I’ve got a small (5X5) collage started, called “Cowgirl Spirit.” I’ve made more ATCs, too and am gearing up to take the plunge and jump into my first trade. (For this particular one, it’s 20 cards, either all the same, or all different.) I’m trying to think of a way we could have a trade of our own–readers of the LLM blog–any suggestions? There are no rules with ATCs, remember, EXCEPT that they MUST measure 2 and 1/2 by 3 and 1/2 inches. The big problem would be facilitating the trade. If you’re interested, send an email to the site with ATC in the subject line, in capitals.

This could really be fun!
