Than the polymer clay you’re working with. Yesterday, I used the wrong side of a blade, intending to slice clay, and sliced my finger instead. Nothing serious, but typing with a band-aid on is a little tricky! I have a newfound respect for tools–just glad it wasn’t a grinder or a power saw. Lesson learned: pay attention. I’m always daydreaming about some story I want to write.
Injury not withstanding, yesterday was a great day. My dad, Skip Lael, came to visit and see the progress on the barn, along with his friend, Jon Millard, who took some wonderful pictures. Later in the day, great nephew, Lucas Readman, came to visit. His parents and dog, Brody, tagged along. He was a month old on the 8th of April, Lucas, I mean, not the dog, :), and he is one handsome heartbreaker of a fella. Look out, girls. Here comes blue-eyed trouble!
Yesterday was also the day I found out that “McKettrick’s Heart” is STILL on the NYT bestseller list! #11 this time. I’ve had one book from the trilogy on that list for TWELVE WEEKS.
My good friend, and one of my favorite authors, Debbie Macomber, will be at Auntie’s Book Store this Saturday, April 28, from 2:30 to 3:30, signing her new book. I will get there if I can, but may not be able to get away. If any of you can make it, please tell Debbie I said howdy!
