Hi, folks, it's the busy time of the year for me. It's not even thinking about snowing here, but my life is a flurry! For some reason I always get work in December, and this one is no different. I've got fifteen articles to write, a thousand or so essays to read, a novel revision to finish, a story start to polish, and a sample book for a company. Whew! My head is spinning.
I must Christmas shop sometime! My husband time is out of the country for the holidays. He's off fixing nuclear machinery in the middle of the Atlantic on the JOIDES Resolution. They are studying the Earth's crust under the ocean.
The crazy thing with all this stuff to do, I'm out of control with reading right now. Oh, my, I have a big stack by the bed. I'm also writing my own stuff. Fitting it into the corners of my life. And of course, I've got a organ and brass concert to go to and the Christmas light festival, and some pecan pie baking is my future too! Whoa! this is a crazy time of year.
The most important thing I know is to keep it all positive. Oh, believe me, it is a struggle. To me the sky is falling. Me and Chicken Little are soul siblings. So my hourly assignment is to not complain, enjoy my life, and write in every margin I can find.
Just a reminder, I hope that you give my picture book a look and help me win a library for Sul Ross Elementary. It's called "The Big Fuzzy Coat." I am quite pleased with it. Please consider giving it a vote if you indeed know what Facebook is. Select the following link and choose "like". http://meegenius.com/challenge/the-big-fuzzy-coat-by-molly-blaisdell. Pass it on please.
Peace, friends. Seize the day.
No doodle this week. I'm entering the local baking contest with my Christmas Package Lemon-Raspberry-Macadamia-Nut Bars. Here is the pic.
Here is a quote to think about. Perhaps we should try to be this kind of busy bee. :)
