Cool Gig

Tuesday, June 08, 2010

Waahooooooo! I've sold 3 books - I mean it counts even if they were purchased by friends doesn't it?? I can't thank Susan enough, after she bought one she posted her find on Facebook which led to 2 more sold. My friend Jamie posted my shop link on her profile as well......I am eternally grateful for my friends. My shop has been viewed by people in 41 states and 24 countries as of this morning, what a cool gig my life is. Do stop by Susan's blog and have a look at some of her artwork and photos, I love to have a look at the world through her eyes! Jamie works photo wonders with her iPhone these days, some can be seen here.

I had my first Caprese salad tonight with my homegrown basil (I eat them like crazy all summer long)  - sure wish I had my own tomatoes, they're still just 8 small plants but they DO have flowers on them, crossing my fingers I get a better crop than last year. In my "garden" I have some bell peppers, two of which have 2 small gonna-be-peppers on them about the size of a marble, my lettuce is growing very well too! And tomorrow I will plant 7 different peppers in varying degrees of hotness since Tom loves cooking spicy. Oh - and my poor little key lime tree that I have drug in and out of the house now for several years has a bumper crop of a couple dozen limes on it, normally I only get enough to squeeze into a beer or two!

In honor of my little garden heres a ditty for you, not sung by Ricky Nelson, but his 3 sons and what a fine job they did - I think dad would be proud .

Thank you, Rebecca - I love all my books but just cannot keep 'em all! Actually I've kept only 1 because I accidentally spilled coffee on the top of the pages running through the Charlotte airport in April LOL!!
