Happy Sunday, everyone! And pretty soon, Happy Thanksgiving! (Can you believe how quickly the holidays are passing this year?! :peekaboo )
So how is everybody doing this week?
I’m running a little low on “happies” this week—not because it was a bad week, but simply because I’ve been kind of busy with the usual, with nothing exceptionally bad or good happening. Also, I haven’t yet announced a couple of the things I’m happy about, so I don’t want to mention them here just yet. :turkey
So this will be quick.
This week, I AM HAPPY that I managed to get the Author Alterations (a.k.a. final proofreading/corrections) for PROJECT: RUNAWAY HEIRESS done on time & that they were relatively clean this time. Still loving this book. Every time I go over it, it gives me a rush. Especially the end. :letitsnow
I AM HAPPY, too, that Editor C seems to really love this story. Despite the semi-intensive revisions he made me do :steamin he’s gushed about it on several occasions, most recently calling Nigel & Lily’s story “Fierce.” And I guess if he’s happy & the end results are “fierce” all the :neener was worth it.
I AM HAPPY to be making progress on my current Work-in-Progress. (Which I can’t talk about just yet, but soon…very soon. :wink )
And I AM HAPPY that Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Not for any particular reason, exactly. If anything, it will make the year feel like it’s passing much too fast. But I’m looking forward to a bit of a holiday “break.” And even though I’m sure I’ll end up working straight through, it will at least offer a bit of quiet & maybe some fun movies or marathons on TV. Not to mention :yummy .
Okay, let’s get to your good stuff! What are you happy &/or grateful for this week that you’d like to share?

LOL That’s how I feel—I don’t care what the reason is for time off, but I’ll take it! :happynewyear
And y’know, what I’ve found with meat substitutes is that you pretty much have to try them all. If you only try one type/brand & you hate it, then you think they’re all awful, but that’s not true. Some are actually really yummy. I have fave brands of certain things, but don’t always like *everything* one company makes.
If you want recommendations on anything like that, talk to Darling Jessica (Lemmon). She’s a super successful vegan. Totally puts me to shame…but also gives me some great tips sometimes. :wink

He he. I’m in it for fun TV, too. Not the parade, but marathons of my fave TV shows or some good movies.

Congrats to all the winners.
Happy Thanksgiving week. lol
Seems like Thanksgiving is a whole week long. I’m always running around getting stuff ready for the family to come over.
I am happy that I am adopting 4 more 1 year old rats this week. A friend of mine has them and she works so much that she asked me if I would take them since she doesn’t have time to give them the attention they need. I am very happy about this.
