One Thousand Gifts-21

Captain’s Log, Stardate 12.08.2006

I’m participating in the “One Thousand Gifts” list from Christian Women Online. Click on the picture to find out more about it.

526. My scarf is coming along nicely. It’s so soft, I love it.
527. I’m starting to eat an ounce of nuts every day. It’s supposed to be very healthy, plus it has the good fats I probably need to lower my cholesterol. And there’s a lot of fiber, too.
528. I’ve been drinking cranberry juice every day, too, for my uterine tract. But I think next time I’ll buy the 100% juice instead of the cranberry cocktail. This stuff was cheap, but there’s tons of sugar.
529. I got my tea from Adagio today! I ordered samplers of Candy Cane (because I can’t find Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane anywhere, I’ll have to go to Whole Foods and look there) and Candy Apple (apple and caramel—Mmmmmm). I also ordered my favorite everyday tea, Adagio’s Irish Breakfast. Again, if anyone wants a $5 gift certificate for Adagio Tea, just e-mail me or comment. It’s a clever promo Adagio has where I can give them anyone’s e-mail address and they’ll e-mail a $5 certificate.
530. I cleaned out my room a bit and catalogued things I’m giving away to Salvation Army.
531. I organized my books a little bit today.
532. I raised my monitor a bit (when I’m sitting down) so let’s see if it’s good or not.
533. I got my stamps from Stampin’ Up today! Wow, that was fast! I’m very excited. I’ll be able to use the new stamps and the new paper for Christmas presents, now.
534. I’m loving Nichole Nordeman these days. Right now I’m listening to This Mystery. Some of the songs seem to relate very well to my heroine, Trish—especially “Fool For You.” I’ll post the lyrics at some point.
535. I found a stick of lip balm that doesn’t have those artificial stuff that I’m allergic to, so I can use it. :)
536. I exercised yesterday!
537. I got my new cross training shoes and used them for the first time yesterday. What a difference it made! My non-existent arches didn’t hurt like they did with my old shoes, which I think were too old.
538. I ate lots of veggies yesterday, including more of that organic fresh herbs and baby greens salad that I love so much. With extra virgin olive oil mixed with aged blackberry balsamic vinegar. Yum.
539. I’m so glad there’s no youth group tomorrow night. I can use the time to write.
540. I discovered I can use my wobble board when I’m standing and working at the computer.
541. I found a Korean soap opera available on Netflix and put it in my queue. I have K-dramas in my second book, so I have to watch one for research. Maybe I’ll also figure out why so many people in Hawaii are so hooked on them. I didn’t believe it until Mom told me about them.
542. I didn’t play with my new laptop today, I actually stayed focused and got work done instead. I’ll fiddle with it when this book is done.
543. During lunch, I enjoyed reading the Betty Neels book I’m in right now, whose title I can’t remember. LOL
544. I only read a little bit of my book at lunch and went right back to work.
545. I worked on my scarf while I was watching syndicated CSI Miami episodes (it’s become so addictive!)
546. I’m on day 23 of my Bible in 90 Days. God gave mercy and lenience even to mad, bad King Ahab. That just boggles my mind. But if He can grant mercy to even him, who worshipped pagan gods and sacrificed children and stuff, then I shouldn’t doubt God forgives me when I repent.
547. I’ve been in a good mood all day, listening to great songs and writing.
548. I drank lots of water today
549. I downloaded some free sheet music from today. Totally cool website!
550. I balanced my bank accounts and paid my credit cards yesterday


  1. Hey Camy!

    I haven't posted in a while, but I've really been enjoying your Thousand Gifts. I like tracking along with you because you work so hard at finding healthy things to work into your everyday life. I'm so impressed!

    I'm so addicted to CSI: Miami on A&E. I watch it practically every night. I love how terrible Horatio's character can be sometimes. And congrats on the new shoes! I think people don't realize that you need to get new shoes more often than you think you do. Have fun with them!

Year of the Dog serial novel, chapter 5

I’m posting a Humorous Christian Romantic Suspense serial novel here on my blog! Year of the Dog is a (second) prequel to my Warubozu Spa Chronicles series. Year of the Dog serial novel by Camy Tang Marisol Mutou, a professional dog trainer, is having a bad year. While renovating her new dog kenneling and training facility, she needs to move in with her disapproving family, who have always made her feel inadequate—according to them, a job requiring her to be covered in dog hair and slobber is an embarrassment to the family. She convinces her ex-boyfriend to take her dog for a few months … but discovers that his brother is the irate security expert whose car she accidentally rear-ended a few weeks earlier. Ashwin Keitou has enough problems. His aunt has just shown up on his doorstep, expecting to move in with him, and he can’t say no because he owes her everything—after his mother walked out on them, Aunt Nell took in Ashwin and his brother and raised them in a loving Christ

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
