Assorted Chatter

I didn’t get to do much shopping on my recent trip to the Big Apple, but I always try to get to my favorites–McKenzie-Childs and Kate’s Paperie.  This time, I ran into a few snags–Kate’s had moved from their old location on 57th Street, and I was too busy to track them down.  (Next time.)  At M.C., nothing really spoke to me–a rare occurence, since I LOVE this stuff.  Alas, there’s always Lee’s Art Supply, another great store, rumored to be frequented by Brad and Angelina and family, and I made an exciting discovery (for me) there–no, not Brad, but a line of paper called Decopatch.  The colorful tissue is absolutely beautiful, perfect for mixed media backgrounds and artist trading cards.  I’ve been searching the internet for more ever since I got home–and it was harder to find than I would have expected.  Find it I did, though–there’s quite a bit on eBay.

Our weather is just plain crazy.  The peonies haven’t popped, though the lilacs are lovely, scenting the air.  I haven’t even planted my usual deck garden this year–too much rain.

Sadie-beagle has exercise today.  At the moment, she’s snoozing in the corner of the kitchen.  

It’s a writing day–and since spinning yarns is my favorite thing to do, that’s a big blessing.  I’d make soup, but I’m on another diet.  Frankly, I’m not sure I can go through that again.  What if I just stopped fighting my weight and accepted that I’m not 18 anymore?  I wouldn’t mind being this size from now on, but I sure as heck don’t want to get any bigger.  :)  That’s the dilemma.  Also, I miss my nightly glass or two of wine.  Sigh.

Conner’s book, “Creed’s Honor”, is out there in the marketplace.  Yeehaw!  That’s always exciting.  And I’m having a fabulous time with the characters in “Big Sky Country”, the work in progress.

That’s the news from my kitchen table.  Be well.

    I've been following your blog for years now, and am so glad that I can give responses since you changed the format. When wrangling my weight, I have decided that I was underweight at 30, okay at 40, and am now a "little" plump; however, my good health is more important than a few pounds fewer on my bones.Diet suggestion: embrace salads, enjoy your crock-pot, and have that glass of wine whenever you want one. Perhaps desserts can become the once monthly treat if the wine is more to your cravings.

    Just read the new Creed book last night. LOVED IT!!!! I've been a fan for many many many years and I just can't quit reading and re-reading them. Can't wait for more. An another topic, I've also been reading your blog for about a year and find that no matter what part of the country we're in (I'm near the east coast), there's people out there that share similar issues (the not-to-be-discussed d.i.e.t).

    Linda! Just finished Creed's Honor! I don't know how you keep cranking out such great books, but I can hardly WAIT for the next one!! I have been collecting your books now from thrift stores or where ever I can find them. I have family on the look out for them and have accumulated quite a rack full. I love to reread as they are just as good the second or third ( or fourth or fifth) time around! Keep that pen flowing!!! God bless!!
