Haven't written a slice in a long time it seems. The slices of my life are just piling up like firewood stacked for winter. Let's take a log off and toss it in the fire. See how it catches fire...
Sunday was my birthday. yea.
But, the good thing was, I determined to have a book in print before my birthday, and I did. Two days before my birthday, I uploaded my book of fall poems to Blurb (and a version to Amazon).
You can find "The Fall of the Leaves of Fall" here. My previous post has a preview if you go back to Saturday....
Then, today (it is Monday night as I write this), my husband took me out for an early breakfast and a photography date with our digital SLR's...anywhere I wanted to go...anywhere I wanted to stop! I had a blast! I think he did, too...but it was all about ME.
I got some pretty good shots of ocean, trees, red berries, grasses and such. I'm hoping it will be seed for new poems and writings. Haven't "developed" my "film" yet, but will get out my card reader and do that in the morning.
Ok...couldn't wait until morning...
We spent the day out - then the finale of a steak dinner at Longhorn.
I had about with a two hour "break" when I went in to school to read with second graders (love that time) - part of my regular routine this year. Yea, again!
Now, don't forget to get your cup of coffee and head over to read everyone's slice at Two Writing Teachers! Yea, a third time for another wonderful thing (the first yea didn't count)!
