Publishing…and Other forms of Insanity has this great post with 27 Great Websites for Writers. I should mention that I originally found this post through Chris The Story Reading Ape’s Blog, another amazing, resourceful website for authors.
A huge thank you to both those websites for incredible support for authors!
This one has to be the prayer I love the most. It’s just so beautiful. It says, in such a beautiful way, how I can work with the craziness and insanity of the world today and the people in it that sometimes make life so challenging. I love how much hope and peace it gives me.
Do you have a favourite saying or prayer you’d like to share? I’d love to hear it!
Before we started our garage construction, I never really thought about how a garage was built. The concept of building permits, variances, inspections and cost never once entered my mind. In fact, I remember not even liking garages at one point.
My, how things change.
We now have a building, attached next to our house, with insulation, dry wall and floor. It’s incredible to me because only a few weeks ago, we had a hole and a ton of dirt. Now we have an actual building. And it’s full of interesting parts.
There are doors, windows, frames, places where the lights will go. There are tons of different materials and somehow, it’s all orderly and makes sense. It’s also incredibly neat and tidy. I love neat and tidy.
The floor is made of cement and it’s graded so that the snow melts away from the house. Grading is something else I had never known about before. Now, it’s super important.
It looks like a garage and I’m pretty excited about it. A garage. Who would have ever thought I’d say a garage is a thing of beauty?
A huge thank you to Happy Day for sharing this beautiful picture with me. She noticed my Weekend Coffee posts and thought I might use it for those posts. Isn’t it beautiful? Check it out:
Isn’t it gorgeous? Love it!
My latest addiction, this great blog is just about cutie-patootie animals. Every day, there’s a new picture to make me smile. I love it.
This one is a fantastic article and I found it thanks to Winter Bayne who’s got an eye sharper than an eagle’s for this sort of thing.
Huge thumbs up to them both!
What about you? What’s your latest find or addictive blog?

I’m really sorry to have sad news to share. This blog is about positive things. There’s enough sadness in the world without me adding to it.
So, this is not the post I wanted to write and it’s a hard one to put into words. But I didn’t want to pretend nothing had happened either.
Walter died this weekend.
We had actually just gone over to the breeder’s to see him the day before. It was particularly hard to meet him in person, see how cute, fluffy and wonderful he was and hear the news the day after. It was also very hard on the breeder and his family.
On a positive note, if there is one, we’re even more appreciative of our two fluff-balls of dogs. They, blissful in their ignorance, have no idea why they’re getting all these extra hugs and kisses…but they love them.
It’s certainly a lesson, for me, on appreciating life and everyone in it while I can. Life is a blessing. So, I’m really glad you are in my life, wonderful readers. And little Walter, if only for a short time.
