Good morning to all, I hope this message finds you doing well.
Here, I’m busier than a one legged man… Well, you know the rest. Anyhow, first thing’s first. I got my internet bill paid and services restored this morning. Needless to say, even though I’ve been skimming email on my phone and culling out the most important ones needing immediate attention, I’ve still got a ton or so to go through and deal with today. So, if you’ve emailed me any submissions or contacted me for anything else, please know I’ll get back to you as soon as is possible.
For the next few weeks, other than WordPress Wednesday and working on The Writer’s Grapevine I’ll not be doing much else. I’ll be signing the lease on my new apartment today and next week I should be able to begin the move in real earnest.
This morning, I’ll be going to do the paperwork on the apartment and this afternoon I’ll be facilitating my Free to Be Me call and then I’ll be delivering a speech during my Toast Masters meeting during the evening.
Tomorrow morning, I’ll be hosting a Zoom room for the Saturday morning trivia call on the ACB Community Calls and in the afternoon I’ll be alternating between packing boxes, working on the magazine and scheduling posts for this week’s upcoming WordPress Wednesday.
The same will be true for Sunday as well. For me, the Labor in Labor Day will be busy.
Please be aware that the deadline for The Writer’s Grapevine is the 10TH of the month. Please also be aware that the guidelines state one article for each category. This means, you may submit something for as many categories as you wish but you may not submit more than one thing for each category.
I apologize that there was no real Sips of Wine from the Grapevine for August. Things have been a bit crazy for me. It has been a lot more work than I thought it would be to get Blue adjusted to his new life here. We’re coming along nicely though and I expect nothing but good things for our lives ahead.
Prince Edward is doing quite well. He has adjusted nicely and his main goal in life is to aggravate the dog as much as is possible.
This morning, during feeding time I learned just how polite and patient my dog could be. I’d made both boys’ food and had already sat Eddy’s down in its place. He saw it but was curious about what Brother Blue was getting and so unknown to me, when I sat Blue’s food down in the floor Eddy hopped down to taste. When I didn’t hear Blue munching right away I went to see what the trouble was. Had he not heard me state, “Take It!”? When I looked Eddy was nibbling away and poor Blue was sitting politely waiting. I removed Eddy from the bowl and put him back onto the dishwasher and then gave Blue a bit of extra love and a whole lot of praise. That is what comes from having a dog trained at The Seeing Eye where they’ve not one but two cats in residents. How proud I was.
Well, off to see what else needs doing before I leave. Everyone have a super great day and a Happy Holiday Weekend.
