Daily Journal: Happy Turkey Day America

Atlanta (Photo credits:


Well, I’m flying today. So hopefully I can work on the pet battle book while waiting in the airport. Luckily another direct flight because my destination was Atlanta and my carrier was Delta (Atlanta is home to Delta and their main hub). Don’t worry I did get to eat my Turkey, just was yesterday instead of today. I have to work tomorrow so I had to be back today. Weather is showing no snow there. Which I’m thankful for. I’m looking forward to being back with my kitties. Hudson will be nuts.

Day 9 and the Hearthstone book is still not approved in the iBooks store. Yes, I’m not patient at waiting.

I did the Celestial Tournament pet battle again today. I got my 2nd pet. Chi-Chi. I think I may get the ox next.

Vision in White by Nora Roberts

Vision in White (Bride Quartet, #1)Vision in White by Nora Roberts
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

First of a quartet of books. The quartet being 4 best friend who grew up together & now run a wedding consulting/package business together.

As a rabid fan of Nora Robert’s Chesapeake Bay series & the In Death series, the start of this series was rather…. lackluster. It was ok enough for a romance novel, but just didn’t have that spark of characters that make me love the other series I have read.

Though I was amused by Bob’s lists & then Carter preceding to joke about the lists & the steps to dating, but in the end it was like “Are we following the forumla correctly?” A bit disconcerting to me.

i never did national network tv interviews later on in life like the ones i did when i was twelve – WWdN: In Exile

I’ve always said that Stand By Me was so successful because Rob cast four young actors who were so much like their characters, but I think it’s spooky how the four of us ended up being so much like our characters: River died too young, Corey struggled like crazy to get his personal demons under control, Jerry found success and happiness, and I’m a writer.

I’ve read this post multiple times. This is what always gets me.
