On Today's Menu -- Eggs, Bacon, Toast, Fried Potatoes, Juice
Notice the menu is just a little plain. That's because I don't know how you eat. So you may fill in the blanks however you wish today. I know I wanted breakfast, and this is what I always order.
Two eggs over medium, extra bacon extra crispy, wheat toast w/ butter and jelly on the side (I eat it like dessert) home fries with onion not hash browns, and a small tomato juice.
I don't care what anyone says, adjectives are my friends. Especially for breakfast.
I wanted to say thank you to all my new followers and friends. I'm in the process of deciding where people will go. Because I have two blogs, I follow some people over there, and most of you over here. So If I haven't followed you back yet, it's just because I'm deciding where to put you, or someone else. I try to stay somewhat organized or all chaos breaks out (as it is now.) So don't fret. I'm just in the process that's all.
I don't know if you'd be interested or not, but I put up an excerpt from my latest book THE DUKE'S DIVORCE up on my author blog. It's from page 134, and is a little past the mid-way point. It's a quiet scene in itself, but put back in context with the whole book, it's actually quite climactic. You can find it here. (And I love this part of the new Blogger -- you can click the link and it opens the page in another window so you don't have to click back and forth. Fun stuff. What will they think of next?)
I've been hard at work trying to piece together the remnants of THE LADY'S MASQUERADE. This was the first book I ever finished. Notice I said finished and not wrote. When I first started blogging, I think I posted some excerpts from it, and for those of you who've been with me since then, it's gone through about a bazillion rewrites. It's still about Penny and William and how they get together, and I still love the story, and although nothing much has changed in the plot, the writing is soooo much better. I'm ashamed that I let it go out into the world (to betas and eegad, even to agents) looking the way it did. But hey, 4 years later, I've learned an awful lot.
And this last bit of news I'm sure will thrill you as much as it thrilled me. My father built me a compost tumbler, you know, the barrel shaped things where you put all your eggshells, and banana peels and veggie skins. I can now make dirt. I am beyond excited as in NC all we have is red clay and although stuff grows in it (don't ask me how) I can't dig in it because my hands turn red and it takes forever to get them clean. Gardening gloves are not my thing, I like to feel the dirt between my fingers. So now I'll be able to make all the dirt I want and have the best garden on the street. Yay!
Have a great weekend everyone!
