Happy Sunday

Happy Sunday, everyone!  I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend, & that wherever you are, it’s dry & sunny & beautiful instead of wet & soggy & blustery.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve got a lot to be thankful for this week. :angelme

I AM HAPPY about the brand new cover art for MUST LOVE VAMPIRES & that I was finally able to share it with the world.  (That would be you guys. :wink )

I AM HAPPY, too, that now that I have the MUST LOVE VAMPIRES artwork, I can have new bookmarks designed & printed.  Whoo-hoo!  I love new bookmark time! :chick

I AM HAPPY that the little glitch in my research for the “Dynasties:  The Kincaids” book has finally been ironed out & is finally working for me.  That sure was aggravating, let me tell you. :argh  But once I got the logistics & geographical issues figured out, everything else seemed to fall into place.  Yay!

I AM HAPPY that—after the little research glitch on my “Dynasties:  The Kincaids” story—I finally seem to be back to writing full steam ahead.  There for a while, it was bits & bursts, & it was driving me crazy.  For one thing, I do not have time for bits & bursts.  The deadline for this book is coming up sooner than I want to admit & I’m not nearly as far along as I’d like to be.  (I never am, of course; the only time I feel comfortable with where I am in a book is when it’s finished & winging its way to New York.  :knock )

I AM HAPPY that the weather is finally starting to get nice.  Yes, we’re still having some nasty storms…& the tornadoes down South are horrendous; I’m so sorry for all of you who live in those areas—& I’m praying for you, too!…but there have been a lot of days lately when I could open the doors & windows & let in all that fresh air & sunshine.  When I do that, the cats are soooooo happy.  And if the kittehs are happy, I’m happy. :kittylaugh

PhotobucketLast but not least, I AM REALLY, REALLY, REALLY HAPPY about something that I can’t share for fear of jinxing it.  Nothing to do with my writing or a new contract—although if anyone would like to offer me one of those that would make me REALLY, REALLY, REALLY HAPPY, please feel free—but something much more personal.  Where this is concerned, if you love me, say a little prayer—not that I get what I want out of this, but simply that if it’s the right thing & meant to be, it will happen.  And if it does, I’ll tell you all about it then. :howyoudoin

Now it’s your turn!  What are you happy & grateful & thankful for this week?  Tell us all about it, so we can be happy with you! :vday

      Ooh! It’s “The Boyfriend School” with Shelley Long, Jamie Gertz, & Steve Guttenburg. Can I just got to Walmart.com & see if it’s available, or was it a different website?

      TY! :bees

      :angrychick &^$@! Went to Walmart.com, found the $5 sale, & looked up The Boyfriend School. It actually popped up, which nearly had me wetting myself. :chick Until I saw the notation “Out of Stock Online” followed by “Not Available in Stores.”

      :madchef :angrychick :bloody

    Congratulations Jolene!!!

    I’m happy that the majority of our flooding issues are behind us. At least for now. People were beginning to build arks around here.

    I’m happy that we went to a Fiber Festival yesterday that was AWESOME (especially for it’s first year). Anyone who is a fan of fiber crafts would love this and I’m going to make sure I go to more of these. I’m going back today to get some more goodies for a new craft I learned there yesterday and will be able to add on to my “store” soon. It’s needle felting and I completed my first hat this morning. The vendor is also local to me so it will be able to get supplies. Not only is it fun to do, but it’s a great stress reliever.

    I’m also happy that I get to go with my middle son to Chicago tomorrow as a chaperone with his 8th grade class. They have planned so many neat things for us to do. The best part is that my son wanted me to go!

    and finally…..

    I’m happy that there are so many Heidi books coming out this year! I’m having withdrawls!! :spikey

      :ROFL So here’s where my head went when I read “Fiber Fair”: Wow, they actually have fairs about getting more fiber in your diet? I suppose that’s a good thing, but I hope they have a lot of bathrooms available for after folks try the free samples. :ROFL

      And I love Chicago. Have only been there once for a conf., but I’d go back in a minute. Have a good time!

      • Laura J. says:

        Yeah, I had to be really careful posting that on facebook. You would have loved this though Heidi. B’Girl trained a llama today and made friends with an Alpaca and an angora bunny that thought it was a baby (fell asleep in her arms) not to mention all the great yarn and wool just waiting to be spun. B’girl was my excuse to go back and get more stuff for needle felting (another word I’m going to have to be very careful when using). This summer I’m going learn to weave tapestries *g* not big ones though. Nope too much work. There is one coming up in June about an hour from here and then and then another one in September or October.

        Hmmm to think this all started with *someone or someoneS* encouraging me to knit.

    I am also happy because we only have 4 weeks of school left…we get out on the 26th..wootwoot!!
    The son has 3 weeks..but we are gonna hold off on the woots until we see grades…..I may be having my nervous breakdown then…..

    I’m happy because next Saturday is the United Cancer Services 3 mile walk fundraiser…..My husband and I are team Herd of Turtles…then I am having a nice relaxing lunch with my friend…and then putting on a small dinner/late christmas with another friend. :xmastree

    Also Im happy that I didnt have to put any money into the kitty for the biggest loser challenge at work…in fact I lost 2 pounds…big Happy for that! (we’ll see how that goes tomorrow..another weigh in…)

    Hmm… Heidi!!! Can’t wait until you can share (‘cuz you know how terribly impatient I am about secrets!) but will be praying for certainty and planets aligning and all that good stuff for you!!

    It’s been a good weekend, even with my littlest guy sick. He’s happy to be home from school and playing instead :angel
