Zondervan blog

Captain’s Log, Stardate 06.13.2006

Blog book giveaway:
My Thursday book giveaway is A STITCH IN TIME by Allison Bottke.
My Monday book giveaway is RV THERE YET? by Diann Hunt.
You can still enter both giveaways. Just post a comment on each of those blog posts. On Thursday, I'll draw the winner for A STITCH IN TIME and post the title for another book I'm giving away. Stay tuned.

My new publisher: I just discovered a Zondervan blog. Yeah, I’m behind the times.

There’s also a Zondervan MySpace—become a friend!


Captivating: I started my Blog Bible Study with Heather and other new friends, and I’m liking it. It’s making me think about my femininity more than I have in a long time.

I don’t usually think of myself as feminine because I’m usually pretty logical and pragmatic. I’ve instructed my husband not to give me cut flowers because they’ll just die and it’s a waste of money. Try to tell me that’s not the most unromantic thing ever!

Sometimes I revel in my unromantic nature, but this book has been reminding me how much I loved fairy tales and romance when I was younger, and I wonder if it was forced out of me, if I forced it out of myself, or if I just walked away from romance and fantasy.

Ironic since I’m a romance writer!

I also bought the guided journal for the book and it looks terrific.

Diet: Speaking of looks, I’m so depressed. Well, not really. Dismayed, more like. Now that I’m feeling better, I’m lamenting the fact I haven’t exercised since I got sick. As for eating, I’ve been averaging 1600-1800 calories a day. NOT GOOD. Well, actually, it’s an improvement from a few months ago, because I was tipping over 2000 calories every so often, but not as much now.

I will exercise! Thirty minutes five days a week!

Actually, yesterday I did Denise Austin’s two morning exercise programs (fast-forwarded through commercials, though, so it’s about a total of 40 minutes of exercise).

Knee is feeling fine, by the way. No pain, although very slight swelling. I’m at six and a half months post-surgery. I went to the doctor yesterday and he said it’s looking good, and to come see him if there are problems, but otherwise I’m free. Isn’t that great? Now I have to make sure I keep up with my exercises.


  1. I loved CAPTIVATING, and also the other books by John Eldredge...especially WAKING THE DEAD.

  2. I'm doing the Captivating Study along with you. I am already beginning to see why I have issues at times with Hubby. Hubby and I are actually reading Captivating and Wild At Heart, together. I hope to gain more understanding of him by reading Wild At Heart.

  3. Glad your knees are better--you need those!

    Btw, I tagged you. (sawwwy.)

  4. Way to go Camy! You're doing so much better than I am on calories! More often than not, I go over my limit. Lol, everyday I start by saying, "today I'm going to do really well; no cheating, no sitting on my butt when I could be moving, and no chocolate." And a few hours later I end up saying, "I'll get strict tomorrow." Lol.

  5. Camy I could have SO WROTE that. I tell my hubby not to by me flowers either - such a waste of money. What happened to me?! LOL

  6. Well if they guys would buy cheap cut flowers it would be one thing, but a single rose delivered by the florist, man, you could plant a whole rose garden to enjoy year after year.

    Captivating is life changing. I bawled all the way through the wounded chapter, and I didn't even know I was wounded.
