Hide and Seek

Ugh, has a week seriously gone by...again? This loss of time thing has got to stop. I wish I could even say I was out smelling the roses but the torrential downpours made that not such a good idea LOL.

Nope, just been plain nuts as usual. My mom--who had a knee replacement followed closely by a middle-ear infection causing vertigo--has been needing my time as chauffer and all around Girl-Friday for the past few weeks, on top of that two of the four jobs went looney-crazy busy there for a bit while the third added an extra day a week and the fourth had two dead lines to meet, we had one weekend away which was lots of fun--a peewee bowling tournament and Blue Jays baseball game and 1/2 the family caught colds.

So, yes, time is still playing hide and seek with me....
....maybe I'll just go hide in some bubbles for awhile

At work today, our office is heading out to the River next to the town and taking an hour to go down and do our part in cleaning it up. Then, after school, we, as a family, are going to go along our roadway and do another clean up....

What are you doing to celebrate Earth Day?


Well, we had oodles of fun cleaning up around the a couple soakers too LOL. Then our boss bought us all lunch! But seriously, we all felt really good afterwards, proud of ourselves and that we did something good not only for the community but for the environment as well.

And then the whole family cleaned up about a 1/2 a kilometer of ditches on both sides of our country road.

Overall....very good day!!

Anybody else running out of this elusive element?

My fault, I know. I say yes to too many things. Some are fun so I can't say no, some are dutiful, so again, I can't say no, and others I'm usually guilted into, so again, can't say no. I know, I know, it is something I need to learn to do....but, let's be honest, is it going to happen, no. HA! There, I said the word, aren't you proud LOL.

Here's hoping time is on both our sides this month LOL!

In the Jungle

I'm blogging at the Writing Jungle this week with a bunch of other children's authors.

Pop over for a visit and find out about some great books, behind the scenes and unique things you may not have known about writing for children! And help me celebrate the release of the second book in the Adventures of Harriet, the Half-pint Holstein series, The Troll in the Chicken Coop...available now from Firedrakes Wery!
