Happy Saturday!


Photo: an elk I startled on our way out of Estes Park . . .  (yes, she's real! Just meandering through downtown . . . ) 

The WIP is now up to 50,000 words--a major miracle, considering that this week I spent way too much time playing the rice/word game and tweaking a computer program.  I LOVE my Libronix electronic Bible study program, and they've come out with a new version for Mac.  So I spent most of one afternoon transferring my 1700 electronic books to the mac beta version, only to find that the program is really not ready for prime time--searches crash, nothing prints, and the footnotes don't automatically append.  It will be wonderful when it's working, but for now I have to stick with the Windows version. 

My Google alert told me about something kind of fun tonight--the woman who writes this blog asked her readers for their top book recommendations--and she received over 400 responses. From those she compiled a list of top books and top authors, and guess whose name was at the top of the author list?  Tee hee.  I tell you, it's a good thing to have a name that begins with the first letter of the alphabet.  :-) 

Well, if it's Saturday, I'm cleaning my house.  The woman who has helped me clean for over fifteen years has retired, so I'm back to cleaning everything myself.  Which makes for a lot of fur, especially in my office.  So excuse me while I go fetch the vacuum . . . 

Have a great weekend!

Good morning
I have gained a different perspective over the years...less square footage = less cleaning. Most homes tend to be large in the forest. And, the forest is a daily vacation for us. So, we close off the rooms we don't use and just touch them up when they need it.
Congrats on the WIP. I have done a bit, but have spent most of my time studying what I learned at the conference.
Have a great day!

That elk does look like a statue with that pose and her color looks so ruddy.
We have friends who live up there and I so, so love it when we go to visit. Its one of my favorite towns. Did you take time to peruse some of the boutiques? My 9 year old son calls them "Mom's hippy stores."


Congrats on the WIP! Not that it surprises me. My accomplishments pale in comparison, so its a good thing I don't compare myself to others!!!

It would be impossible to not have you on the top of a list of favorite authors; you write well, and unfortunately, not all others do. You tell fascinating stories; some do. You continually surprise the reader with a twist or two, and not many do that. You're SPECIAL and deserve this honor.

You are definitely one of my favorites, Angie...I can't keep your books, I just keep sharing them with friends and family.

Do you know that we were in Estes Park last weekend? (the 24th) I took some fun pictures of Rocky Mountain National Park--still no bighorn sheep...but some pretty scenery and elk!

I'm glad you liked being on my list :) I'll definitely have to pick up one of your books in the near future.
