Yeesh. There’s been so much going on here on the old homestead, I’m not sure if I’m coming or going.
First, our winners for this week. They are: Peggy Clayton and Louise McCourt. Congratulations, both of you; you’ll be receiving your autographed books soon.
Second, let’s round up some winners for next week. All you have to do is comment, and you’re in. 2 winners will be chosen at random, contacted by Super-Jen, and finally announced right here in this space on Monday morning.
Now, for some catch-up. Mom is still here, recovering from her cold, but she’s much better and already making noises about going home, which is a good sign. My ankle is almost back to normal, though there’s still a little swelling and I have to be careful when walking on uneven ground.
Wednesday was my birthday, and you can see a video of My Big Surprise on my Facebook page. I wore a tiara all day, and the news at Weight Watchers was good–down 2.2 pounds. (YES!) A great fuss was made over me, including cake, party hats all around, and noisemakers. Before I move on from Weight Watchers, though, I want to mention that I met one of you there! Joy showed up, and I must say, her name certainly suits her. She glows when she smiles, which is often.
I’ve been reading and listening up a storm–everything from Steven James’s young adult suspense books, BLUR and FURY, as I may have mentioned, to WEIGHT LOSS FOR PEOPLE WHO FEEL TOO MUCH and MINDFULNESS, which is an 8-week program for–you guessed it–becoming more mindful. I particularly enjoyed the Chocolate Experiment. (Good thing dark chocolate only has 2 points per square.)
I’m pleased, proud and very, very grateful to report that THE MARRIAGE SEASON is enjoying its second week on the New York Times bestseller list–#9 this time. Thanks, in large part, to all of you.
Well, I’d better get back to the new book, ONCE A RANCHER. If you love this story and these characters half as much as I do, we’ll both be happy.
God bless and keep. I’ll see you tomorrow.
