Waterlogged Wednesday

It started raining yesterday. Then it started HAILING yesterday - and the sound pounded the roof and the yard and the cars in the driveway.

Then the power went out all evening. I was in the middle of posting comments to my entry yesterday and lost everything. Anyway, time to move on. It's a new day!

The rain is still raining. Steadily and hard all night.

Time to curl up with my manuscript and get some words pounded out.

A book would be more cozy. And a cup of hot cocoa.

At least I got my son's college paperwork we were working on finished. Sort of. Still more to do. There is always more to do. :-)

And I printed up the "Letters of Agreement" for the school visits coming up this winter and spring before the computers in the house all went down. We haven't had a power outage in years. I was telling my youngest son that when I brought him home from the hospital as a baby we had no power. I had two toddlers and a newborn and no power, lights, heat, etc. No fun - but we survived!

Kimberley- Thanks for your comment about my review of Calpurnia Tate on my blog. I was totally drawn into that book and loved it and loved the voice especially. When I read a book like that, I just hope a whole bunch of kids are going to like it and wish I knew the answer to that! I can think of quite a few books I bought when I was a librarian, book talked, shoved them into good readers' hands, and nothing happened. No magic, no discussion, nothing. Was I ever disappointed. Of course, there were also a lot that kids and I both loved. Sometimes it's hard to tell.
Hope your power is back on and I'm excited to hear about your school visits. Good luck with all the great news in your writing life! (Sorry, I got a little long-winded for a blog post)
