Six random things on Saturday

1. For some reason Cassie has changed her wake-up time to 6am. 7 days a week. This does not endear me to her at all. Remember, I am NOTa morning person.

2. It took me two hours to water the yard today. I'm hoping to get enough water to the new garden that I don't lose any plants if and when we end up with rationing this summer.

3. I have too many books. I mean don't have too many because I love them all, but I don't have enough room. It probably wouldn't be so bad if I weren't so picky about where they go. I want all the writing craft books in the bookcase right next to my desk but it is overfull even with stacking books vertically. I already moved the poetry craft books into the library with the poetry books but I am still out of room. Grrr.

4. No matter how many layers of padding I put against my office window I can still hear the evil neighbors, their music, and their horrible cackling laugh still comes through the walls.

5. #4 means it is going to be impossible to enjoy my own backyard all summer long unless they drink themselves into an endless stupor. Sigh.

6. Chocolate silk pie makes many things all better.

There are so many stories only you can tell.Tell them, please.

3. You and me, both> I've been BRUTAL lately with the trips to the used bookstore, and I still am running out of room. And there's no more space for shelves.

Come May (note how THAT list is growing), there will be some serious reorganization in this room AND some getting rid of things OTHER than books.

Oops--that last one was me. New computer doesn't have any history yet. :)

LOL. New computer????

oh, and the books, I also have 11 boxes of my mother's romance novels out in the garage to get rid of. It's a pain with Logo's because when you take down a bunch you have stay around town for 6 hours and that's hard sometimes.

My old, many times "upgraded" desktop got a virus and bro-in-law (aka computer guru) said it wasn't worth fixing (although then he did!). We had an extra used one sitting around that is, unofficially, 20X faster than the last one, and he got it all set up for me. :)

Now of course, that greedy laptop is whining for more memory. One thing at a time, I tell it.

Chocolate silk pie does make everything better. I like strawberry-rhubarb pie, because it's sweet, tart, and flaky - like me ;-).

LOL. You are SO not flaky but sweet and tart, uh huh. :)

Do you think Cassie is getting up with the sun?

We managed to train Echo not to bother me (the person who takes him out) until he hears the alarm clock.

I don't know what the deal is. When we first got her she would sleep until 7 or so and we could get her to go back to her bed and be quiet until about 7:45.

I have tried feeding her later and feeding her earlier. We take her out around 11pm or so and I don't think holding it is the problem.

I think the biggest problem is that after she eats dinner she zonks out. She hardly wakes up at all from 7 until we go to bed so she's probably had all her rest. Sigh.

Yes, I agree tere is NOTHING to see at 6am. I'm up until 12 or 1 and need to sleep longer. I wish I could be like my husband and just crash back to sleep but once she gets us awake at 6, even if he takes her outside and then crates her, I have a really hard time going back to sleep. Ugh!

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
