Monday Chuckle

Slept GOOD last night, could have slept longer, though. Four day weekend coming up - whoo-hoo!

Do Me, Do My Roots by Eileen Rendahl is an awesome book. Not exactly chick lit, but really warm and sad and funny about three sisters. Highly recommend. I met Eileen in NYC while we were waiting to get into The Today Show (we were all late!) and she was so nice. She has three more books out now - Balancing in High Heels, Un-Bridaled and Petals on the Pillow.

I've decided I have to rewrite about 40 pages from the book from scratch, BUT I know what I'm going to do and it should help me expand the 50 more pages I need as well. Now, if it was only Thursday....

My friend Kris sent these to me - enjoy!

Glad y'all enjoyed! I didn't get any writing done yesterday with the plumbing stress (not that I did anything but worry) but I am anxious to get back to it. I'd like to send it to Emily by my birthday.

Great quips!

And that's my favorite pic of Gerard Butler so far! I like my men arty and sensitive looking.

MaryF said...

Yep, Esri, it is a good pic! I'm hoping to inspire JoAnn....
