A Milestone

A milestone for me today: It is my birthday!!!  A great one too, I might add. But I refuse to divulge how many. Birthday wishes came from all over. My children, friends and family called or sent snail mail cards and e-cards as well. I am blessed and fortunate to have such people in my life. Take a peek at my birthday cake that a friend brought over. Only about 1,000 calories. Heh-Heh. But I enjoyed it. 

My Low-Calorie Birthday Cake!
To help you get a head start on the new year, check out the The BookShelf Muse blog. It’s got tons of helpful information and offers “writing tools and musing on reading, writing, and other randomness.” I especially like their “emotions’ thesaurus.” 

“If we had to say what writing is, we would define it essentially as an act of courage.” – Cynthia Ozick (Writer’s Quotation Book)


  1. Happy Birthday!! How does it feel to turn 30? :)

    I love the BookShelf Muse blog. It's been very helpful to me.

  2. Turning "30" feels good. Heh. Heh. Don't I wish. Thanks for your good wishes. I'm glad you use Bookshelf Muse too.
