One Thousand Gifts-27

Captain’s Log, Stardate 12.14.2006

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

676. I’m on day 28 of my Bible in 90 Days. It’s both sad and yet good that the Levite priests in Israel escaped to Judah to continue to serve the Lord when Israel split from Judah. I guess I’m just sad when I read about the corruption in later years.
677. I exercised yesterday!
678. I think I ate bad smoked salmon dip yesterday, but God was good and helped me not get too sick.
679. My friend Ronie is almost done with her bachelor’s degree in psychology! She takes her last exam on Friday!!!! Woohoo! Congrats, girl! That psych is certainly doing you good with characterization, don’t you think?
680. I fixed our YahooGroup so now Dineen’s e-mails are going through rather than being pegged as spam.
681. My Steeple Hill discussion board friend Hope Chastain got picked to pitch her romantic suspense to Krista Stroever!
682. Dineen told us about a free download of “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel” as sung by . . . I don’t remember who, now. But it’s a good version.
683. I finished a synopsis critique for my Story Sensei critique service.
684. My synopsis critique was a second manuscript from a previous client whose first manuscript just got contracted! I’ll be able to say more when she signs the contract. (No, Heather, it’s no one you know.)
685. As of right now, I’m only 2 or 3 scenes away from finishing my rough draft of the manuscript! Hopefully I can finish revisions in a day and get this sent to my critique partners.
686. I have another synopsis critique job coming up this week, too.
687. I got to watch some CSI Miami episodes.
688. There are two A&E movies I’m looking forward to watching when this manuscript is done—two different adventures of The Librarian. They look kind of like Indiana Jones-type movies.
689. I’m also looking forward to when I finish my manuscript and can schedule a day to watch the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice again.
690. I moved some boxes to the guest bedroom so now my office is a little brighter without as many boxes stacked up.
691. I moved some scrapbooking tools to my living room/dining room so that I can use those when making cards. I’d forgotten I had those tools to cut different sized shapes.
692. I can’t wait to start making more cards.
693. My scarf is almost done.
694. I’m doing okay on calorie count so far today. I’ll probably snack more when I write later tonight, but if I’m starting with less calories than normal, that’s a good thing, right?
695. I think (I’m hoping) I’m burning extra calories in standing while I’m typing.
696. I enjoyed listening to the Broadway cast album of Beauty and the Beast. I love Terrence Mann.
697. I got to read a few more pages of my Betty Neels novel today during lunch.
698. At the CAN Marketing Blog, I posted a link to a good article on the benefits of personal blogging versus an author market blog.
699. My husband was very sweet and let me record Bones on the TiVo instead of his UFC Fighting Championship program.
700. Thanks to the aerobics, my surgery knee is feeling stronger these days.


  1. Ohmygosh, I LOVE Terrance Mann too -- he's great on The Scarlet Pimpernel and Les Miz cast albums as well. I wish he'd record a solo CD.

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
