We’re settling back into the school routine, and I’m getting over the weirdness of having both kids in high school. This week I’m celebrating:

  1. End of summer fun at the Champlain Valley Fair! We went on lots of fun rides and had our traditional ice cream cones and maple donuts. I took my son to the Double Figure 8 Race/Demolition Derby event, and he loved it. I have to say it was quite entertaining.
  2. I donated copies of my book to 8 more libraries. On my way home, I stopped at a country store/deli for a sandwich, and after talking to the owner about my book in casual conversation, he bought three copies to sell in his store! Boy, was I surprised. You never know where opportunities will pop up.
  3. Went to my local library and couldn’t resist checking the online catalog to see if my book was back. I discovered it had been checked out again. Yay!
  4. Had my traditional IHOP back-to-school breakfast. Yum! 🙂

What other celebrations are going on out there?

  1. That’s great news about the store owner! And yay for your book being checked out again! It’s always so gratifying to have your work actually be read by people. That fair and demolition event sounded like a lot of fun. Have a great weekend! 🙂
