What’s Up With That?

Why is it that both

a) inspiration for two new story premises
and
b) inspiration for how to revise two different wip pbs

comes at a time when I’m crashing up against deadlines for 2 wfh projects which have to be squeezed into the hours between

1) back-to-school shopping for the kids that I haven’t started
2) ferrying multiple kids to multiple activities
3) staving off exhaustion by trying to get some sleep
4) squishing in those omigod-where-has-the-summer-gone and I-haven’t-even-done-this-yet activities

all while fighting off an allergy induced fog or, if I break down, an allergy-med induced haze?

Sheesh!

(Yeah, so why am I here doing this even?)

Camoed Caterpillar

I went to check on my black currant bush to see if some of the currants were ready to be picked when–surprise! I noticed this weird camouflaged caterpillar. Lucky I saw it before I touched it. (Shudder)


What the heck kind is it? I haven’t been able to find out. Is it even a caterpillar? Wish I knew.

Wicked Weather

Boy did we have some thunderstorms yesterday early evening! Downbursts, tornado warnings, heavy downpours. I heard the booms and crashes, however I must admit I missed most of it because my girls and I were watching the Hannah Montana movie in the basement. Maybe that was a good thing.

I did catch the post storm show. The aftermath in the sky was beautiful…

New Review

I love Google Alerts. This one came in yesterday:

www.canadianteachermagazine.com/reviews/non_fiction/Lets_Go.shtml

A lovely new (or new to me) review for Let’s Go!

Are you an author? Ever tried out the Google Alert thing? It’s a wonderful way to find out when something about your book is posted online, or at least when Google finds out about it.

When you set up the alert, make the keyword(s) your book title. So long as you’re not offended when you see it auctioned on ebay, it’s fascinating to see where it pops up!
