This has been a weird week weather-wise. We went from 0 degrees F. to 50, then back down into the teens in a span of three days. Mother Nature can’t make up her mind if it’s winter or spring. Or maybe she’s just teasing us. This week I’d like to celebrate:

  1. School vacation week! It’s been a nice break from the usual hectic school schedule.
  2. Getting started on my taxes. Last year I procrastinated until the last minute, which was not a good thing to do.
  3. Going out for pizza! We were out shopping and running errands and spontaneously decided to stop for pizza before going home. Best decision of the day.
  4. My son, the NASCAR nut, is celebrating the start of the racing season. He was glued to the TV for the Daytona 500 this past Sunday.

What other celebrations are going on out there?

It’s been another busy week in the book marketing and selling departments, and it’s going to be a busy weekend, too. Things I’m celebrating:

  1. I did a fun interview on Celine Jeanjean’s blog, Down the Rabbit Hole.
  2. I sold five books in 2 ½ hours at the local Farmer’s Market Craft Day! Whoo hoo! Three people paid cash, and two paid with credit/debit cards. The Square worked perfectly and was quick and easy to use. Thank you to everyone who suggested I get one!!
  3. I sent press release/calendar event info to the surrounding newspapers and put flyers up around town for the Barnes & Noble book signing coming up. I don’t know how many of the papers will actually include the info, but it was a good exercise in publicity.
  4. In a fit of madness, I called the local WCAX TV news station and got myself on their Books Over Breakfast program, which is a brief segment where the news person talks to authors about their books. It’s scheduled to air on August 5th at 6:55 AM. Eeep.
  5. On Saturday, I’ll be going to the League of VT Writers Summer Retreat and Member Showcase in Albany, VT, to attend some interesting workshops and hopefully sell more books.
  6. On Sunday, I’m taking my son, the NASCAR nut, to the Sprint Cup race in Loudon, NH, as an early birthday present. My daughter gets to spend the weekend with grandparents, and she’s excited about that.

I also enjoyed some lovely weather this week.

What other celebrations are going on out there?
