A week ago because I’ve been absent…
I went to my 8-year-old granddaughter’s ballet/jazz/tap recital. She did an awesome job. She’s so beautiful. Really she is. Her picture was on the front page of our newspaper. She’s intelligent. Really she is. This little gal is the puttering of my heart. Her spirit is as true, honest and pure as they come.
I talked with my former in-laws at the recital (who lost their home and nearly their lives in the Leap Day Tornado). They are in their 80’s and doing well. They hope to move into their new home shortly.
I spent Mother’s Day with my mom and my daughter. My sister and daughter provided a delicious meal and dessert. My dad was there too. Then my son dropped by my house later to say hey. I feel very blessed.
Last week was the last week of school. I’ll get a few days off then summer school will start. Then vacation. Yay.
Last week I watched…
The Help- Good movie but racism and oppression always disturbs me. I don’t like either. I have no patience for people who think they are better than another. Just saying.
Desperate Housewives- The End? OH NO! The show was so goofy and yet they pulled me in and held me hostage for a couple of years.
While I was absent this happened…
Clarissa Draper is working on making her A-Z posts into a book. (Me too, my A-Z posts not Clarissa’s into an e-Book.)
Tracy at My Thoughtful Spot is releasing her book Life Through the Eyes of a Hurricane as an e-Book.
What I am writing on…
ü A little ole romance short story for my commitment to Write 1 Sub 1
ü A children’s story about a backyard adventure
ü Rewriting the Grim Tales of the Ruralhood adding and changing some things and finishing one that was continued. Speaking of the grim e-book, if anyone would be interested in helping me as a critiquer or beta reader (gratis) for the Grim Tales stories in the near future email me at tcoltrin AT gmail DOT com. In case you didn’t read them during the A-Z April Challenge, the Grim Tales are 26 short stories.
ü And FINALLY a new post at The Ruralhood.
Questions for you: Anything new and exciting in your life? Any children awesomeness? What are you writing on? What are you reading? What are you doing for goodness sake?
