Catching Up

It was another busy week around here and I have a little catch-up to do.

For starters, I still don't have any pics from the Seventies party. I'm going to ask again on Monday and each following Monday until someone at the office ponies up. We've got a lot of things going on right now though, and the primary custodian of the photos is busy putting together our annual Benefits Fair, so I figured it wasn't a good time to be too persistent.

I've got my second print draft of Steal Tomorrow en route from Lulu with my fancy new front and back covers, so I'm looking forward to getting it this week and seeing how it looks. I'd like to begin posting the story before the end of August, but in the meantime I'm posting extra content on the blog, so check it out and feel free to subscribe to the email updates. The email is through Feedburner, not me, so don't be shy-- I only know how many subscribers I have, not who they are. I hit a dry patch with my writing after Tid went to the Bridge, but I'm doing better now and new content should be pretty consistent.

I didn't do too well with exercise this past week. Weather was a big part of the problem, since for two mornings in a row we had a rain band move in off Hurricane Dolly at the exact time I needed to get out the door. I have to start my workout by 6:00 am in order to be ready for work by 8:00, so things like wind-whipped horizontal rain at 6:00 really screw things up. On Thursday, though, I took an extra half hour at lunch and got in a short run, so I made up for one of those lost mornings, at least.

Dan and I reversed our usual order of things this weekend. We had a wedding to go to on Saturday, so I made it my cooking day and did my run this morning instead, followed up with Indian food and a nap.

I have no new recipes for this week-- sorry. Maybe next week.

I also still have not found my new bunny, although I'm starting to feel like I'm ready for a new long-eared pal. One can't force these things, though.

And finally, Tidbit's old pals at Furry Butts gave us this nice award:

The rules are as follows:

1) Put the logo on your blog.
2) Add a link to the person who awarded you.
3) Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4) Add links to those blogs on yours.

Since this award seems to have gone through all the bunny blogs, I'm going to hit up a few of my writing and fitness friends.

1. Tennessee Text Wrestling
2. West of Mars
3. Ingenious Title to Appear Here Later
4. Chumplet Writes
5. Cranky Fitness

Here's where to pick up your Award. Play or not, as you choose.

Here's to a great week, everyone!

It's always good to be busy...
The Bag Lady is also really busy right now, but she had to tell you that she finally got around to making your spinach cheese bread and it is divine!! The Cowman ate half the loaf at one sitting!!! Good thing she has a bumper crop of spinach this year.

Awww, congratulations on your award! Tid would be very proud, too. :) And thanks so much for passing it on to me, my friend! I'm honored, and I'm grinning from ear to ear. :)

Sounds like you've been very busy! And I'm sorry the weather has been yucky. I wouldn't want to run / hike in rain like that, either!

So exciting that you'll be posting Steal Tomorrow soon. I'll help get the word out about it from my blog. Steal Tomorrow is such a great book with unforgettable characters. :)

Thanks so much, what a nice surprise!

And I hope a suitable long-eared fluffy tailed companion hops into your life as soon as the time is right.

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Wow. That's a heady group to be part of. Thanks!

Chumplet said...

What a sweet gesture, BunnyGirl! Thank you for thinking of me.

Julia Smith said...

Hi - I've popped over from Thomma Lyn's blog. Congratulations on your award, and I couldn't agree with you more on nominating Thomma Lyn and Susan - two of my favorite bloggers.

you happy with lulu?

ever done blurb?

all that jazz ;)


bunnygirl said...

Miz - I've been happy with Lulu so far. The books are of nice quality and the process of uploading print and cover art is pretty simple. My only frustration is that it costs nearly $5 more to have them print my book in pocket size as opposed to 6x9 trade. Very annoying, since I and many others prefer the smaller size.

I'm not familiar with Blurb.

Rabbits' Guy said...

Oh Boy .. THANKS .. glad to know somebody else will just say NO if it is raining too much!

Golly, how will you ever find the right bunn? How will you get just one?

furrybutts said...

A new long-eared pal?? How exciting! I agree it can't be forced, but I'm sure some day, you'll be able to find a bunny which you feel an immediate bond with :)Of course, the Tid will always always have a special place in our hearts :)
