Captain’s Log, Stardate 12.21.2006

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

801. I finished another article for
802. I looked up a verse in my new TNIV Bible. It was cool. I love that Bible.
803. My Miss Saigon CD arrived!
804. I’m listening to Phantom of the Opera for the first time in years. It’s beautiful.
805. We had a good Bible study last night.
806. My husband and I had a good discussion in the car on the way home from Bible study.
807. I finished making my cards to give away
808. I had a great time talking with a client/friend on the phone the other day
809. I got my Scarlet Pimpernel CD!
810. I’m very glad I got the Concept cast of The Scarlet Pimpernel because I just realized the Broadway cast doesn’t have two of my favorite songs from the Concept cast, “Home Again” and “Marguerite,” unless they’re called different names in the Broadway version.
811. I think I’ll still order the Broadway cast CD because I love the snippet I’ve heard of Terrence Mann singing “Falcon in the Dive.”
812. I saw more of the shows on my TiVo, freeing up more space
813. I watched TV with my feet under the toasty warm kotatsu, which is a coffee table with a heating element on the underside and a blanket draped over it, sealing in the heat.
814. We had bought our kotatsu for only $35 at Salvation Army a few years ago! It’s from Japan and everything, so it was a good deal.
815. I packed up a few packages to ship
816. I finally called the mochi shop in Japantown, Shuei-do, and ordered three boxes for pickup on Friday. I’d been afraid they’d be too swamped with orders to fill mine. The mochi is for my parents, my aunty, and my grandma.
817. I’m enjoying being able to exercise while I work because I’ve configured my computer at my desk so I can stand.
818. I’m almost done with Sharon’s manuscript and it’s really good!
819. I got the conceptual designs for my cover yesterday! I’ll be talking today with my Marketing Director about them.
820. I used Heather’s recipe for onion dip and made some for my celery. It’s good! I made the low fat version and added extra salt.
821. I didn’t have an evening snack yesterday!
822. I made a cute gift tag with my stamps. I’m so glad I bought those new ones from Stampin’ Up.
823. I remembered to decline my Writer’s Digest Book Club selection
824. I got Robert Liparulo’s new novel, Germ.
825. I’ve got more judges for the Genesis contest second round! This is so exciting! I hope I can get another Chick-Lit, Multicultural, and Sci-Fi judge.


  1. Girl, you are WAY UP there on the list! Good. I enjoyed reading your thankful list.

  2. yay! you used my recipe! I'm honored!

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

How can I pray for you?

Photo credit: 日本語訳は下をご覧ください。 Just when I was feeling better, I had another bad IBS flare up! I had a really wretched 2 weeks in September, but I’m finally starting to feel better. Despite the lost two weeks, I got right back to work and now I'm getting close to finishing book 5 in my Regency series. Please continue to pray that my health will be stable so that I can write without getting derailed by my IBS like I was last month. Lord, thank You for all You give to us. You remind us in little ways each day that You are watching over us and that You love us. Help us to have humble hearts that submit to Your will for us, because we know that You love us fiercely and only want what’s best for us. In Jesus’s name, Amen. How can I pray for you today? Please leave me your prayer requests! Prayer requests can sometimes be private things, so to keep your privacy, I’ve made a form you can fill out that will keep your requests just between you and me.
