In Life

It’s often the little things that make it worth getting up in the morning. Hey, I admit it. There are occasional days when I’d really rather not bother.

Fortunately today wasn’t one of them. I had a nice long chat with a very dear friend last night and I was still smiling when I woke up this morning. Isn’t it amazing how some people seem to know exactly when to get in touch? Or is it just me that happens to? Hm, perhaps I send out an I-need-you vibe or something. Don’t really know but whatever it is, I’m always happy when it works.

Later on at work, (yep, still smiling with no one knowing quite why which made it even better) I opened my bag of Cold Stone jelly beans. Damn if they don’t taste just like the ice cream! Regina, 35 only have 140 calories so you might want to nab some next time you’re at the store. Trust me, they are so sweet you won’t even eat that many.

In happy writer news, my wonderful editor offered me an Ellora’s Cave contract for Chaos, the second in my Cosmic Connections series. Time for me to get back to work on the third. And I will. Just as soon as the new people who invaded my mind move on. But for now I’m having so much fun playing with them that I hope it’s not too soon.

Oh, I have to give those a try. They sound delicious, B.

Congratulations on your contract. That is amazing and I'm very proud of you!

Love Cold Stone ice cream, but can't stand jelly beans.

Stay warm:)

Ah damn. I was getting really excited about the jelly beans, too! I actually eyed a package of them yesterday at the store. The shelves are stocked with Easter candy now and I'm thinking seriously of avoiding grocery shopping because of it.

Congrats on the contract!
