Happy Sunday

“A well-spent day brings happy sleep.”
~Leonardo Da Vinci

Happy Sunday!  I hope you had a lovely Mother’s Day last week, & have much to be grateful for this week!

I AM HAPPY that I was able to help with the Animal Welfare Council yard sale last week.  I didn’t do a whole lot, but I certainly donated oodles of stuff for them to sell, was able to help with setting things up for a couple of hours, & then made a nice, rounded-up donation for the items I grabbed for myself while helping to set up. :kittyplay   (I can be very generous when people let me in the doors early so I can poke around before the crowds arrive. :eyelashes )

I AM HAPPY the cover flats for MUST LOVE VAMPIRES arrived so I can see how gorgeous this book is going to be when it finally hits the shelves! :chick   It is really, really gorgeous, let me tell you.

And if you missed my offer on Twitter & Facebook to autograph a cover for you before MLV comes out, let me know.  I’ve still got plenty & will be happy to send you one.

Although, if you’re signed up to be one of my Street Walkers, never fear—you’ll be getting one when I send out the next batch of promo items, anyway.  And if you aren’t signed up to be one of my awesome Street Walkers, but would like to be, please contact our very own Huggy Bear (a.k.a. Darling Laura J.) via the Street Walkers website.  Her info is in the far right sidebar.

I AM HAPPY beyond belief that THE BITE BEFORE CHRISTMAS & INHERITING HIS SECRET CHRISTMAS BABY are both Finalists for Phoenix Desert Rose RWA’s “Golden Quill” Award.  Happy Dance!  Happy Dance!  Happy Dance! :getdown

I AM HAPPY that Madame Mommy Dearest has been able to take another cruise, which I know she enjoys.  This time, she’s touring Boston, the New England states, & parts of Canada.  I am hoping, as a souvenir, that she will bring back my weight in maple syrup.  That’s a lot of syrup, but OMG, I lurvs it!  I would drink it as a beverage, if I thought I could get away with it.  (How about you… do you like syrup nearly as much as I do? :spaghetti )

And last but not least, I AM HAPPY that everything involved in that Top Secret happy-happy is still moving forward & going fairly smoothly.  (Knock on wood.)  Shhh. :hide   I still can’t talk about it, but I will ask you to keep sending those positive thoughts my way.  If it all works out, I will definitely be filling you in, believe me. :bees

Allrighty…that’s about it for me.  How about you?  Please take a moment to tell us what you’re happy about this week.  And feel free to share the news about your Mother’s Day celebrations.  Did your kids do right by you, or have you been rethinking the wisdom of bringing them into this world at all? :spikey


And now for the winner of our Friday the 13th Free Book Friday giveaway, No One Heard Her Scream by Jordan Dane…

    “Love the moment. Flowers grow out of dark moments. Therefore, each moment is vital. It affects the whole. Life is a succession of such moments and to live each, is to succeed.”

    I am loving the moment. Have a great day and a terrific week.

      Oh, boy. I’ll bet you are counting down. So am I, but unfortunately, my countdown is “9 days to noisy neighborhood.” :argh It’s not that I don’t like kids :whistledev but it sure as heck isn’t easy to write when they’re screaming in my ears all day every day. :argh :argh :argh

    Wow–what a fabulous week. No wonder you’re so happy! :cupcake

    I am happy because I finished a hard round of edits and have a fun vacation in two weeks to look forward to (especially now that I’ve finished those edits!) Drinks on the patio, anyone? :drinkme

    • Heidi says:

      Yay for you, Pam! :jump And yay for the upcoming vacay…is that going to include Nationals, or does the conf. come later?

      I am always up for drinks, & I don’t particularly need an excuse. :drinkme

    Congrats to Denise!

    Oh I’m sorry I have not been on in a while!!! Finals week was hectic and now I’m starting another semester for the summer and it’s all work and no play! :humpf

    The cover for MLV looks AMAZING!! Did I read correctly that we can ask you to autograph a cover?! Ohh!!! Tell me what I must do! I’ll be good!!! :angelme

    I’m happy that I was able to work out my work schedule and school schedule and caught up with all my writing assignments! And I’m happy that Netflix exists!

    • Heidi says:

      {{HUGS}} on the busy-busy, Alex. I can sympathize, believe me. But I’ll bet you’re doing awesome in all your classes, & that’s what counts. Besides, we’ll still be here after your finals are finished. :doh

      Yes, yes—I’ll be happy to send you as signed cover flat for MLV. Just contact me via the regular route (http://heidibetts.com/contact/) with your full name & mailing info, & I’ll get one out to you! :claphat

    Sleeping on the sofa goes above and beyond! Most of the time, my three stay at the foot of the bed or behind my knees, but often when I use the bathroom and come back cat #1 is in the middle of the bed. Since I don’t turn on the light, he’s gotten squished a few times, so you’d think he’d learn. I have slept across the head of the bed several times to not disturb them. Luckily, it’s a queen, I’m short and I usually pull up my legs somewhat.

    I used to hate the smell of maple syrup. My dad would make pancakes often and there was a good 15-20 years were I couldn’t tolerate syrup. I now eat pancakes and waffles once or twice a month. I can’t really tell the difference between the cheap imitation stuff and the real. Try Costco for a good price on the real stuff if your mom doesn’t come through for you.

    • Heidi says:

      LOL I’ve learned to pat the bed if I’m trying to get up or lie down in the dark. Pat-pat-pat…fur…pat-pat-pat…no fur, I can lie down. :ROFL

      And I can definitely tell the difference with syrup; gotta have my 100% maple syrup, esp. since the other is just sugar water. Blech.

    :kittylaugh I’m happy I finally thought of a contest to post on my blog. I drew a blank, and then suddenly the idea came to me.

    I’m also thrilled about a beautiful dog we adopted. He’s a Shepherd Collie mix. His name is Chaz. My husband gets up extra early every day to play with him.

    • Heidi says:

      Yay, Kathleen! I just love animal rescuers! I have been rescued several times myself. :bees

      And congrats—looks like you snagged the Devil Horns last night & got to be a Bad Girl in The Dungeon all night long. :whistledev
