Camy here: Oh, I guess this announcement is a little out of date. That's okay. Join this book club! These are great authors.

Blogging: I'm way too into my blog. As I told Heather, it's rather alarming how much I love blogging. Alarming as in send-for-the-guys-in-white-suits kind of alarming.

And I don't know why! Maybe it's the control freak part of me, because I have absolute control over my blog. Maybe it's the part of me that loves seeing my words in print. Maybe it's because my blog is so wonderfully PINK. I just like looking at it.

Oh well. I'm weird. So what else is new.

Bible in 90 Days: Day 56. I love the book of Daniel. I love how it's so specific in some of its predictions, which gives credibility for the other more confusing stuff. I love how angels are portrayed as powerful servants of God and not chubby naked babies with white wings (and BTW, who the heck thought of that?).

And now that I've read the previous books in the Old Testament, I have a deeper appreciation for this book. I understand the time period, how other figures during that time thought of Daniel, how the Lord and other nations viewed Babylon.

Have I mentioned yet how I'm loving this Bible in 90 Days thing???

Writing: Got some done this morning--getting some great characterization done using the Maass workbook exercises. If you haven't gotten this book, get it! I'm serious. It's helped me add so much TENSION and CONFLICT to this story. It seemed so blah in comparison now.

Diet: I lost a pound! 'Course, I'm still suffering with my portion control. Doing okay on the exercise. I really enjoy walking the dog cuz then I can listen to my writing workshops on MP3.

  2. Keep on blogging and blogging. Remember you're writing, and writers gotta keep writing. And yes, seeing your words in print even if it is online keeps you focused on one of your bigger goals which is seeing your words in a book. I look forward to going to Barnes & Noble one day to buy your first hardcover ;-)

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
