Birthday plant by Sharon!
When a writer is at a loss for words it is not a good thing - unless she is struck speechless by the kindness and generosity of her friends. Somehow, in a week where people had houseguests, work commitments, and family obligations, they took time to throw a surprise birthday party for me. Of course, these women have a sense of humor so I was given the task of making the cupcakes for the "party for Kathleen." This party caught me so off guard that even after I walked in and they yelled "Suprise!" my first thought was "Who just walked in behind me?" There is so much more to say, but for now, I will leave it with thank-you: you all teach and inspire me so much.
The rest of the week did not have as much writing and editing as I had hoped, but had so much more living that I cannot complain. The garden has less weeds, the dog and I shared some Q time at the beach, and the St. David's Pig Roast was a success! I have better ideas for smoothing out the book and have even developed fond feelings for the chipmunk.
