Good day with sunshine, good day plenty of sunshine....

Carol Murdock gave me a Renee Award - and I have been horrid as usual in thanking her and doing anything I was supposed to do...and she is such a lovely person.
Angie gave me a Zombie Chicken award and I messed that up, too --forgive me friends!

Just a fast drop by before I get to work.

I was interviewed on Riding With the Top Down!

Jake finally quit moping because he missed Kimmi and her Beloved. He stayed at Kimmi's beloved's feet most of the time: he knows good people when he sees them.
I am becoming facinated with this Amazon monster. Yes yes, I know, I said I would not pay attention to it--and I am not, no really, I am not...teeheehee....but my publishers sent me the weekend stats. I simply can't figure the system out. I went from 80,000 to 50,000 and then end of last week to 400,000, then yesterday I was around 20,000, today back to 80,000...laughing! How does that much change in a rating occur within hours?....! It's all a big mystery that I don't have time to unravel--writing is where I'm putting my focus. Yes, authors should just shrug their shoulders and worry about the words, the language, the characters - and do as I have been doing: Bask in the wonderful words and reviews found right here in Blog Land. I feel grateful and excited and happy! I'll be posting more about that as the days go on, as I did below for Deb Leblanc.
Now, finish my Deep Creek Blend coffee, and it'll be warm enough to work on VK2 on the porch today - glorious! Sunshine and everything turning green!
Now, everyone - go DO the day!

I got my rock and buckeye the other day! I forgot to say thank you as I am a busy busy gal this week! So, thank you! I will be sending you one back as soon as I get un-busy enough! (..and I remember, all on the same day :)


Debbie said...

What a weekend! I am so far behind I think I can see my own backside:)
I hope you make excellent progress this week. I'm off to sub today. (After I throw some clothes on the line outside. Can't waste this sun.)

Jessica said...

You bad girl! Amazon will burn you in the end (unless you make bestseller, lol)

Polly said...

Your post is great. You see the humor in life and that is key to our well being. Glad you have sunshine as the sky is overcast here, but I know the sun is behind those clouds, being ever so patient!

This world is getting smaller and smaller. I just met Carol yesterday and we may be related, as all my mom's peeps are from Hattiesburg like Carol. Love that award...little Boop crawling out of an acorn to become a giant oak!!

Glad you got your scrawny zombie fowl too. LOL Loved your interview over at the convertible women writers blog. :)

So very excited to hear that you're working on VK2 and that you have lots of lovely sunshine to do it in! Sunshine seems to make everything just a bit sweeter, doesn't it?!

Walker said...

Do the day in sunshine.
Is that anything like streaking because I live in Canada and even though some might think we are crazy streaking in this weather......well, why not we are crazy after all.
Have a nice day basking ibn the sun.

I'm so glad our blogger paths have crossed. I will look forward to reading your archives and following your blog.

And first thing tomorrow...I'll be heading to our local bookstore to purchase "Tender Graces." I just read some of the reviews and when someone is compared to Sue Monk Kidd and Barbara Kingsolver? Two of my favorite authors? I can't wait to get that book in my hands.

Enjoy this wonderful weather.

Terri Tiffany said...

We miss you guys Kat, and we hope Jake is getting around a little better. We both fretted on the way home, it may have been too much of a walk for the babe.

:smooch: Back away, back away from the blasted Amazon button. ; )

I hope it was a productive day, and a happy one.

Missy said...

Have you read "But Inside I'm Screaming" by e. flock? It is good, too! :)

Missy said...

Yay! I can't wait 'til VK2!
I won't be able to make it to the conference this time...maybe next year.

Kat: I received my books today...thank you so much!!
