Thankful Thursday

First off, I have to say one thing I am not thankful for. I am not thankful for DHL losing my new computer and for Dell saying they don't believe DHL (or me) and that I have to continue to wait until which time Dell will decide if it is really and truly lost at which time they will begin to rebuild the new computer and it will be sent out again, probably via DHL. Grrr.


I am thankful that I only have 9 more working days in this place that is sinking faster than the proverbial lead balloon.

I am thankful for the foot massage my husband gave me last night which relaxed me enough to allow me 7 hours of wonderful, solid, sleep.

I am thankful that Yerba Buena nursery has a delivery service. Tuesday I faxed over my order and today, for a mere $30, they are delivering more plants. What a deal!

I am thankful that Thursday is my Friday and I have three days off.

I am thankful for the glorious weather we are having which is just perfect for working in the yard!

I guess that's no worse than me ordering books online & waiting happily for the mail person to bring them to my door. Okay, you're allowed!

Too warm for me, but it's supposed to cool off tomorrow. :)

I just keep thinking about those goofy weekends where we worked outside in 90 degree weather and this feels cool!

You know, I had no idea you lived in the bay area until you mention the nursery.

And a foot massage (any massage, really) sounds heavenly right about now.

Yep, bay area girl here. San Jose. Let me know if you're ever out this way!

And he gives the BEST foot massages. Lucky me.

WHO AM I?



Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
