I'm working away on Author Alterations today and everything will be sent back to my editor later this afternoon. Then it's back to work on TRRMF.
I am freezing, by the way. After several days of gorgeous weather (On Saturday we were the warmest spot in Canada) it has cooled off to about 8 degrees at the moment and it was foggy and damp this morning. The fog has burned off and now it's just cloudy...but I cannot get warm. I have the fireplace going but it doesn't matter. I am cold! Am thinking of making a cup of tea or hot lemon to keep me warm.
The weekend was groovy. Saturday, especially. The girls and I went shopping. My eldest had birthday money burning a hole in her pocket and some gift cards too, and I had a few things I wanted to pick up as well. We hit WalMart for the generic type things first. My youngest had some money so she bought a small paint by number thing - and bought one for her sister as well. She also bought herself a cactus which has been named George. Let it not be said that my children are predictable. The cactus is on the kitchen sill above the sink, keeping a grass "head" and another unknown plant company.
Then on to a clothing store where dd1 bought a shirt, then the music store for a clarinet book, then lunch. We went to a pizza chain and I LOVE going to eat out with my kids. They will try things so dd1 had a personal pizza and side salad - her pizza toppings were chicken, bacon and spinach. Dd2 had garlic fingers with pasta salad. The waitress commented that she had never had a kid order pasta salad before. LOL. I had a chicken and mushroom salad thing and we had a lovely meal.
Then the sports store - my biggest purchase of the day. Shoes are EXPENSIVE and the one place where I do not scrimp. Cheaper shoes do not hold up and dd1 has arch issues so it is worth it. From there - the bookstore - where I bought a book for my sister and Leanne Banks' latest for the Pink Heart Picks book club coming up next week. Dd2 bought herself 2 books and Dd1 used gift cards and got four. Then it was a quick stop to pick up the new pool cover and we were home again - at 4 p.m.
We did have a great time though and we bought New Moon at WalMart, so once dinner was over we all watched that together.
But now fun is over and I must get back to work!
