Even though I had to pick up my meds–this is something I THOUGHT I had to do personally but, thank heaven, I was wrong–I got some writing done!
Back home, I went straight into my wonderful new office and finished a chapter ! Yeehaw! I’m loving this book. My health hasn’t been the best lately but, praise the Lord, I’m feeling SO MUCH better.
When the work was finished, I made more soap. I love making soap–though I give it away like mad. After all, how much can one person use??? Even though my new bathroom is almost finished, and the tub is in working order (hallelujah!), I pour far more soap than I need. Just made a batch for my sister, Sally, and I’ve given tons to the local AIDS network and our battered women’s shelter, and I’m systematically swamping my friends with the stuff! (If you haven’t received any yet, hold on. Your turn is coming!) I continually receive new molds and, well, that moment when I pop the bar out and get that first look at the finished product is absolutely magical. Although my favorite hobby is still making and swapping artist trading cards, I’m really into this. It’s downright theraputic!
I have received my copies of “Writing Down Your Soul”, and I’m ready to give one away on this blog, along with a signed copy of one of my own books. Today, I received copies of the new one, “Big Sky Summer”, which will be out the last Tuesday of May, and I’ll be awarding one to our winner along with “Writing Down Your Soul”. Just make a comment by Friday. We’ll choose a winner and my trusty assistant, Jen, will be in touch.
Do any of you keep journals? If so, why? It’s a vital process for me, and you’ll be seeing lots more about it on the blog.
Right now, though, it’s time to head upstairs for a recorded book and an 8-hour snooze.
See you tomorrow!
