Actually yesterday...almost immediately after the earthquake, my daughter called from England to make sure we were all right. Evidently she was on Facebook when her friends' status started announcing the quake. How sweet!

Yesterday. Got The Sunne In Speldour. A copy that was published in 1982 and is still in good shape. So excited. Wish I had time to read it.

Also got two rooms switched around in the house. Lots of work, but the end result looks very nice.

Two boys had a wonderful first day of school. One in fourth grade, the other in sixth (at the dreaded Middle School which turns out to be not scary after all).

Got some of my next trip planned. :)
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

Received a very detailed, thoughtful, incredibly engaging request for a full manuscript from my utter, absolute dream agent - within about 12 hours of my query.
