Exciting News

Thank you to Liana a The Rainbow Dreaming for honoring me with the "Life is good" award.

I will answer all the questions associated with this award at the bottom of this post.

First, I want to put up some exciting news!

Today, I wrote the words “The End” on a novel I have been working on for nearly four years. I wrote the epilogue, as well, and so now all that’s left is the re-write (which will take a few months).

I wanted to post the last chapters of my book for my writer’s group and the deadline to post for this week was tonight, so I didn’t have time to write a blog about my ceremony today… but I will be back to that tomorrow. The exciting part is still to come!

Now, for the “Life is Good” questions…

1. What would you perfect day consist of?

A perfect day for me is a day when I feel completely whole and connected. When I feel like myself it doesn’t matter what’s going on, everything is good.

2. How would you describe yourself if you were an item of clothing?

This is a hard question! I’m really a pretty concrete thinker…
I guess I would be a sari – a multicolored, reversible fabric that could be worn in different ways depending on the mood.

3. What hobbies are you currently working on?

I just finished my book! I am also working on more drawings to illustrate my “Hole in the Soul” story and the rest of my time (when I’m not in blogland) is pretty tied up with my kids and CoDA. Do those count as hobbies?

4. Walking in the woods in wellies or bare foot on the beach?

Oooh tough choice! For today, I will pick walking in the woods in wellies (assuming that wellies are boots of some kind), since that was so awesome during my retreat.

5. Have you ever hugged or sang to a tree?

I hug every tree in my yard every Spring when the buds appear. I LOVE trees!

6. Growing your own veggies or nipping to the supermarket?

I would love to have a garden, one day. In the summer, I drive to the farms (which is a short drive, from my house) and pick up fresh produce there.

7. Have you found anyone exciting in your family tree?

I’m related to President Zachary Taylor and Admiral Vernon (An eighteenth century British Admiral).

8. Slap up meal in a posh restaurant or fish 'n' chips from the wrapper?

Hmmm, another tough choice. I love to cook…. And I’ve never actually had fish and chips from the wrapper (do they do that in the U.S.?) although I’ve seen it at EPCOT in Florida… but mostly I don’t feel like having to get all dressed up just to go eat, so I’m going with the fish.

9. Which element do you most resonate with, Earth, Air, Fire or water?

Definitely water. Flowing and ever-changing.

10. Do you believe in fairies?

If I defined fairies as the little bits of goodness that seem to pour into my life when I least expect it, then yes.

Thanks again, Liana!

It's a really hard choice, but I would like to pass this award on to the following bloggers:
