Blog Book giveaway:
My Thursday book giveaway (ALMOST HEAVEN) is here.
My Monday book giveaway (STEALING ADDA) is here.
You can still enter both of them. Just post a comment on those blog posts.
On Thursday, I'll draw the winner for ALMOST HEAVEN and post the title for another book I'm giving away. Stay tuned.

Quiz: I got this from Pam Hillman:
I have been pondering this all important question--What is your bookmark of choice?

A) The one I handmade for myself
B) The one a friend/family member made for me
C) An expensive metal one bought by a friend/family member
D) A jagged strip of toilet paper, junk mail or the corner of the gas bill
E) Bookmarks from other authors
F) A turned down page

Camy here: It's usually E, because I have so many that I can stick them by the handfuls in every corner of the house where I could possibly need a bookmark--kitchen table, TV room, bathroom very near the toilet--oops, was that TMI?

So leave a comment and tell me what your choice is!

Bible in 90 Days: Day 61. I finished the Old Testament! I never realized how rich and hopeful the books of the Minor Prophets are, especially Malachi. For some reason, the words resonated with me as I read that book. Maybe the joy of imagining the New Jerusalem.

Writing: Got some great plotting done yesterday, and hopefully will get more today. Unfortunately, something went wrong with my networking so I can’t back up the files from my laptop onto my desktop computer. Yikes! I hope my husband can fix it later tonight.

Diet: I was TERRIBLE this weekend—ate a lot and no exercise. But yesterday I had a hard workout at physical therapy and I ended the day at 1500 calories. Today I’m eating a 500 calorie Indian food lunch with lots of veggies. I’m also making French bread to eat with the garlic chicken I made last week.

  1. My bookmark of choice wasn't on the list. I guess "C" could work because mine was bought buy a family member, but mine is not expensive metal. Mine is an inexpensive bookmark with a tassel that my mother bought for me. It says, "Each day is a new beginning."

  2. My bookmark of choice is usually A or B: definitely handmade either by a friend or myself.

    I hear you on the bad diet weekend. I've been doing a lot of stress/emotional eating and need to get back on the diet bandwagon.

  3. I use a variety - author bookmarks, a metal one from my brother, pass it on cards, whatever happens to be around. I never turn down a page, though. If nothing suitable happens to be around, I memorize the page number instead.

  4. I'm like Katie about never turning down a page. I think doing that is disrespectful to the book and author*g*. Otherwise I use anything within reach that's not too big--I wouldn't want to break the spine of a book either.

    I *try* to put in a piece of paper that I can enter data on: dates I read the book, characters with occupations, etc. to use in the database I made up for my books way back in Lotus(?) spreadsheet and which is now in Access.

    I've got loads of real bookmarks around but I'm always misplacing them.

  5. Mines not on your list either. LOL! It's a magnetic bookmark that folds over the page and clicks together. Very cool gift from two very cool friends at my church. What's even cooler is that the Bible verse on it is the one God gave me to keep writing when I doubted whether I should continue. I never told them about it though. Very cool indeed...

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures

ひとり寿司第22章パート3

「ひとり寿司」をブログに連載します! ひとり寿司 寿司シリーズの第一作 キャミー・タング 西島美幸 訳 スポーツ狂のレックス・坂井 —— いとこのマリコが数ヶ月後に結婚することにより、「いとこの中で一番年上の独身女性」という内輪の肩書を「勝ち取る」ことについては、あまり気にしていない。コントロールフリークの祖母を無視するのは容易だ —— しかし、祖母は最終通告を出した —— マリコの結婚式までにデート相手を見つけなければ、無慈悲な祖母は、レックスがコーチをしている女子バレーボールチームへの資金供給を切ると言う。 ダグアウトにいる選手全員とデートに出かけるほど絶望的なわけではない。レックスは、バイブルスタディで読んだ「エペソの手紙」をもとに「最高の男性」の条件の厳しいリストを作った。バレーボールではいつも勝つ —— ゲームを有利に進めれば、必ず成功するはずだ。 そのとき兄は、クリスチャンではなく、アスリートでもなく、一見何の魅力もないエイデンを彼女に引き合わせる。 エイデンは、クリスチャンではないという理由で離れていったトリッシュという女の子から受けた痛手から立ち直ろうとしている。そして、レックスが(1)彼に全く興味がないこと、(2)クリスチャンであること、(3)トリッシュのいとこであることを知る。あの狂った家族とまた付き合うのはごめんだ。まして、偽善的なクリスチャンの女の子など、お断り。彼はマゾヒストじゃない。 レックスは時間がなくなってきた。いくら頑張っても、いい人は現れない。それに、どこへ行ってもエイデンに遭遇する。あのリストはどんどん長くなっていくばかり —— 過去に掲載済みのストーリーのリンクはこちらです。 *** ********** 父に白い封筒を渡される前から、レックスの心臓は張り裂けていた——冷たい日本海で真っ二つに分かれる氷河のように、耳をつんざくような鋭い音がする。 (あなたを、ワサマタユ・スポーツクラブの男女混合および女子バレーボールチームに受け入れます……) その手紙にきちんと折り目をつけて、封筒の中に戻した。そして、膝を上げて横になっているソファの隣に置かれた、コーヒーテーブルに手紙を落とした。 彼女の入部を伝えるために、その日の午前中、ダレンから電話があった。 「ダレ
