Heading out for my girl's weekend after work today and I cannot wait! This is a weekend to read, walk on the beach, soak in the hot tub and just unwind.

Hope everyone enjoys their weekends! :)

As it seems to have been a few days since anyone found something "best" about today, I'll kick in a handful of "goods" about my day.

Got a phone call from a source-turned-friend, who's been reading my MS (for the non-fiction opus still being written...) As I've been in a big fog of misery for a few days, her call was a real pick-me-up and a good reminder that there are people out there who care what happens. (Detect a sign of writer's isolation syndrome?? You're right... :o )

Another friend ordered me some chick lit from my Ammy wish list; it arrived out of the blue today; another unexpected thing to make me smile.

My old (read 1500s) roses are blooming in the garden; beautiful and fragrant. Obviously, failing to prune them has just allowed them to run amok and generate blooms all over the place.

I was able to file an invoice for a freelance piece today; the prospect of income (and not just out-go) is always a good thing.

Over to the rest of you, now....

That's great, Chatterbox!

My best thing today was finishing going over the copy edits on my next book! :)

My best thing today, was realizing that the screw-up on my demo report that I have been reviewing documentation for like crazy - and hyperventilating like mad for - is handled exactly like my tutor told me handle it, and therefore is NOT a screw-up.

Breathe, Lauryn, Breathe ......

however, all the technical glitches are going into that "other" thread ....

Gardenias in bloom...

Traffic was light this morning, too (might pay for that on the way home though).

My office moved to a different space a week ago, and I am happy with the new space and relieved I now have that monkey (of packing and unpacking offices) off my back!

My daughter Nathalie has been accepted by Queen Mary University, London to do a Masters in Intellectual Property (Copyright and Patent law), something you established authors probably know a thing or two about!!!!
