Murphy’s Law Runs Amok

:) When everything that can go wrong DOES go wrong, all I can do is say, “Thank You, God  .”

The bathtub situation seems to be under control–and now the hot water heater has gone out.  I’ve decided to be grateful for that, too.  :)  I mean, surely this is good for my character or something.  And it certainly makes me less likely to take things for granted.  The simple pleasures are the easiest to overlook, methinks.

I know I promised to announce a contest winner today, but it looks as though that won’t happen until tomorrow.  I’m swamped at the moment, and Jenni is off today.  Thanks in advance for being so patient.

Crystal, that is a spectacular idea–a contest to name the characters in a future book.  I’ll discuss this with my peeps and see if we can come up with a plan. 

What I did this weekend:

I made more soap.

I listened to audio books.

I boiled up some split pea soup.

I admired my daffodils and the tulips that are just about to bloom.

I counted my blessings, which are numerous.

Now, back to writing my new book.  :)

Be blessed, be well, and be KIND.

    My Dad use to say” If it wasn’t for bad luck he would have not luck at all”. He just went with it. It always works out in the end.
    I also like the idea of a contest to name one or two characters in a book. :lol:

    Hi, Linda. Occasionally you seem to receive really strange comments from unlikely places, they seem to be unrelated to your blog or your books! Or, maybe I’m wrong, but I read these (there are two in this Comments section) and get a bit creeped out. Do you know what those are about?

    What do you put in your split pea soup? I have a great recipe handed down from my grandmother and mother, but I was just curious how you make yours.

    In the meantime, happy writing!
