Friday??? ALREADY???

Friday, Apr 21

I swear, this week went by so fast, it makes my head spin!

I’ve written 80 pages of “McKettrick’s Pride” since Monday, and plan to hit the 100-page mark today. The story touches my heart in special ways, ways I’ve never really experienced before. Of course every book is unique, and I always do my best, but I feel this one so deeply.

I bought six peony plants this week, too. Peonies are hands-down my all-time favorite flower, and they wouldn’t grow in Arizona. Here, in my big, green backyard, they will flourish. It delights my heart to think of them reaching their roots down into the soil and taking hold, producing summer after summer of blossoms.

I am feeling very blessed. Yesterday, after finishing my pages, I poured a glass of wine and stepped out onto the deck to admire the view. Trees, trees, and more trees, as far as the eye can see. I had done a good day’s work. My dogs and kitties were at my feet. I had just ordered a marvelous painting that I spotted in a gallery during a brief visit to Cave Creek–if I can, I will post it to my website. I thought of my family, my many friends, and you, my dear, faithful readers. Thank you, and may you be blessed.

Make it a good weekend. Plant something. Think good thoughts–they are like seeds, and they will take root, just like my peonies, and grow into something beautiful.
