I was greeted with brilliant sunshine for a change this morning and that awful wind and rain has gone.My bush of yellow roses looked gorgeous in the sunshine and I immediately went into the garden to admire them at close range.I always find something very special about the scent of the first summer rose? Lots of poems and songs about the last rose of summer but I don't know any about the first rose. :)

Last night, I spilled 7-Up on my laptop.

Today, my laptop is working. So that's good.

I wouldn't mind some news on a very dear friend being available on said computer, to put my mind at ease regarding the surgery she had today.

But perhaps one piece of great luck is an omen.

Must completely contradict my last post.

My best friend is doing well. She called me, which I hardly imagined she would be able to do.

My beloved, wonderful friend is well.

And THAT? Is as best as best-things-today happen to get. Beautiful.

Very pleased to hear that your friend is doing well.The anxiety is just awful when awaiting news of medical tests. But when the news is good,how sweet and delightful life seems to be again. :)

Brian, thank you. In this case, it was terrifyingly major surgery, so when SHE CALLED ME that very night, I was astounded, and absolutely thrilled with relief.

She is a blessing on feet, my beloved friend. Life is indeed VERY happy since my mother had a clean biopsy, another dear old friend had a clean biopsy, and this procedure (if "it comes in threes", let hers be the last surgery amongst my loved ones!) appears to have had no complications.

Family get-together. My boys behaved quite well for them and everyone had a good time. It's fun having all the kids together. I got to lead a rousing game of duck-duck-goose.

Okay not today but on Tuesday I heard I got the apartment I went to look. So I'm finally moving away from my parents :) So I've been very busy lately and haven't have time to read.

I got my pitch submitted for Irene Goodman's pitch contest! Also added it as a page on my blog, AND even recorded it in audio (but wasn't tech-savvy enough to get it posted; so the new page is text-tastic; ah, well). Contest here, for those who haven't already seen it: http://irenegoodman.com/historical_fiction_contest.php
