Tuesday News

Revisions to The Wedding Bargain are coming along nicely, I’m happy to say.

Went to one of my favorite farmers’ markets on Saturday and came home with a bag of garden-fresh produce—baby salad greens, Swiss chard, and some delicious turnips that went into a pot of stew on Sunday—and tickets to the local Shakespeare festival’s production of The Taming of the Shrew in July. It’s one of my favorite Shakespeare plays and I’m really looking forward to it.

Six of my neighbors had garage sales on the weekend and from one of them I acquired a huge concrete urn for my patio. And it was FREE! Now I have to make a trip to the garden center to buy plants for it.

I didn’t participate in the sale but I had two boxes of books that were looking for new homes. I put them on a table at the end of the driveway with a “FREE BOOKS” sign, and all but eight disappeared.

Have I mentioned that I’m now on Facebook? I even have a Lee McKenzie - Contemporary Romance Author fan page. Now I just need some fans.

Oh, wait...

Until next time,

Garage sales are tons of fun. It's staggering the amount of stuff that must swirl from one household to another. Sometimes one can discover an outstanding item. Have a great time filling your new planter.

LOL! Thanks, Marin! And congrats again on the RT TOP PICK! I'm really, really looking forward to reading Dexter's story.

Jodie, I agree that checking out garage sales is loads of fun, and my new planter is definitely a great find.

Hey, I friended you on Facebook! :)
Now I need to remember to actually visit. I'm very bad about logging on there.

Gillian, I can see how FB could eat up a lot of time. I'm trying to limit myself to two short visits per day.
