So – things are a little busy ’round here today. I leave veeeeeeery early tomorrow for an SCBWI conference in Michigan. From there I fly to sunny Portland Oregon for Teen Read Week festivities.
Last night BH came up with a great addition to our Life Is Too Short List: “Life is too short to eat burnt popcorn.” Which I was about to do because I am obsessively frugal sometimes. He threw it out and popped me another bag.
Rest of today’s to-do list:
Empty email box.
Go to bank.
Hang out with my parents and help them with a couple of things.
Get hair cut.
Pack suitcase and backpack.
…sneak in a little revision time…
Chill with husband and dog.
I leave you with some photos from the last couple of weeks.
Speaking of fall, this is outside the living room window.

I like your husband’s sense of humor.
What is Independent Dames?
That is my non-fiction picture book detailing the activities of Patriot girls and women during the American Revolution. It is scheduled to be published in the summer of 2008. As soon as I receive some of the final art, I’ll be posting it here.
That is a very expansive To Do List…I’m impressed.
I can’t wait for your Portland visit! I am so excited!
Hope you have a great trip.
Our leaves haven’t turned color yet! I am SO ready.
“My Beloved Husband interacting with Chris Crutcher.” – aka acting normal. 😉
