I managed to get up, walk the dog, and leave the house for work early enough that I could take my time and walk to work along the leafy banks of the River Thames, with birds tweeting and stuff. Uplifting.

    I ate a healthy lunch at Luby's with my aunt and I told her I would be taking publishing more seriously.  She said she believes in me and suggested that I follow my passion.  That gave me a true bump and now I'm ready to roll!  8)

    On Friday, my thriller THE PRICE OF NORMAL, was approved for the Kindle Scout campaign to have Kindle Press publish the book, if I win. For me, that's like winning an Oscar.

    First outdoor sprinkler problem (broken riser in sunny location) fixed before the temperature passed 90F. (Expected high is 96F today.) :) Second problem is in the shade. ;) Taking a break to drink iced tea. ;D Yes, sometimes it doesn't take much to make me happy!  8)

    Found a perfect-fit gorgeous pair of distressed-look jeans at a clothes-swapping party for 1.

    Bumps for the week: My granddaughter is at her home! I got to go back to my ho.e and back to work. My daughter starts a new job today. I get to spend some time with my mom. The yuccas are blooming. DH is wonderful!

    Small bumps for yesterday: I finished a training 5K in the heat and while driving to work saw a vulture fake off from the middle of the road.

    Big bump for today: Saw my oldest granddaughter walking for the first time since her accident in a video in Snapchat from my daughter and then a longer video on the Love Lizzy page.

    I got a couple of things in the mail I've been waiting for--one of them much sooner than I expected!

    Treated today to lunch / dinner at



    And that's what I had.  I LOVE fish and seafood.  Could live on scallops.  Server said the restaurant has been at that location for 18 years.  Huh?  I've lived in the area since '50.  Drive by that location occasionally.  I've never noticed it before.
     
    My bro beagle (1954-1966).  I still miss him big time.
    His last collar hangs on my bedpost.

    Bump for today: I've got the flu and my mom drove two hours to bring me a huge load of home cooked food. She's the best  ;D

    Good cure -- mom's cooking.  :)  Chicken soup?

    A few things...

    1) I finished a run in a pantomime last night, and the rush from the performances is kind of being boosted by relief that it's all over (it's been a long rehearsal period)
    2) I'm in a book with Adrian Tchaikovsky, which came out on Kindle today.
    3) My first Bookbub :D :D :D

    Today is a good day.
