Notice the weeds. Well, how could you not? I'm not much of a gardener, but I can't even fall back on that excuse. It doesn't take great skill or knowledge to pull up some weeds or shoot them with weed killer. Nope. This is pure laziness. In my defense--and I will go to bat for myself over and over again--the weather has not been great. It's been chilly, rainy and/or windy on most of my days off. And the days when it's not those things? I've been busy. (See. Still defending myself.) But isn't my garden pretty? Be nice!
I have today off. My plan is to at least pull up one weed. I'll let you know how much of a fight it puts up. But seriously, I'm ordering dirt and mulch. It should be delivered later this week. That means I'll have huge piles in my driveway. The question is: How long will they sit there before I start to spread them around? It better not be long. I'm laying down the law. The entire family, including the 5 year old, will be working their tales off to get this into shape. My goal is to show you the after photos next Monday!!!
Other things I've been up to: I attended the writing conference this past weekend. Tons of fun, learned a lot and had 2 requests to send in a partial manuscript. Woo-hoo. I'm going to read over those first 3 chaps again and then whip up a synopsis!
I've been reading Blood of the Demon by Diana Rowland. It's the follow up to Mark of the Demon. They're dark, fun and sexy. A great combination.
I'll have a new website soon. I plan to build most of it myself with a MAC program. I'll let you know when it's up and ready.
Busy, busy, busy and still sorta mortified. How about you? Anything you're a little embarrassed about these days? If you have pictures, send them to us and we'll be happy to share in your mortification! email@example.com
