Minor Miracles

Thursday, Apr 23

Another early morning, though not quite SO early as yesterday! (I made it all the way to 4 a.m., which is sleeping in for me.)

I had two appointments scheduled yesterday, and usually when I have to go out, my concentration is so scattered that I don’t get much written. Having journaled and done my devotions, fed the dogs and let them in and out, I considered going back to bed. Then I decided I would sit down at the computer and see if I could get something–anything–done. I had an experimental mind-set.

Well, by 7:30, I had finished all but four pages of my chapter, and completed the works by around 10:00! (There’s your miracle.) It happened that my morning appointment needed to be rescheduled, because I’d gotten the time wrong, and created a conflict. I took a long mid-day nap and went to get my hair done later on. My hair, as usual, was Out of Control! It grows so fast that in three weeks I’ll look shaggy again, but I’ll worry about that when the time comes.

Today, I will FINISH “At Home in Stone Creek”, and I am both happy and sad at the prospect. I invariably fall in love with my characters and hate to let them go. 🙂 On the other hand, now I can start “The Texas McKettricks: Tate” on Monday morning.


On the good news front–there seems to be a lot of that around here lately–“Tyler” is STILL #6 on the New York Times bestseller list, in its third week!! I am so proud of my ‘boys’ and so grateful to you for making it happen. Thank you for joining us on this wild trail ride.

I’m going to Barcelona next March, with my travelin’ buddy, Sister Sal (she says that term makes her sound like a nun! She isn’t.) so I ordered the Level 1 Spanish course (European version) from Rosetta Stone in order to brush up and get into the spirit of the thing. 🙂 This time, we’re staying longer, so we can spend the first few days recovering from jet-lag, and breaking up the long return flights by staying over somewhere along the way. Love Prague though we did, we kept asking ourselves, “Why aren’t we in a warm place?” Barcelona certainly fits the bill.

More tomorrow. Amazing that another week is almost over, isn’t it?
