One Thousand Gifts-33

Captain’s Log, Stardate 12.22.2006

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

826. Blogger is now out of beta! Yay! Soon there will be cooler stuff. I think—from what I read on the website—there won’t be word verification anymore, but I’m not positive about that.
827. I’m done with Sharon’s manuscript and it was GREAT!!!
828. I sent off my article for Christian Women Online
829. I had a great talk with my Marketing Director about my cover.
830. I had a great talk with my friend Stephanie Quilao (Back in Skinny Jeans) about the covers, and her perspective. I really trust her advice because she’s a marketing guru and Asian American, so she knows not only progressive Asian American culture, but also marketing trends.
831. I got my Les Miserables the complete symphonic recording CDs! I’m uploading it to my iTunes.
832. I am totally enjoying getting back into Musicals. I used to love them in college and got out of them, but lately I’ve been enjoying them again.
833. I exercised yesterday!
834. I’m on day 31 of my Bible in 90 Days. It’s heartening to see how the people embraced the Lord’s laws again, although so many turned away from God as soon as Nehemiah left to go back to Babylon and he had to come back and scold them. I also started Esther. How brave, for such a young woman to be willing to die.
835. I turned up the heat and now the house is a little more comfortably warm.
836. My eucalyptus candle aromatherapy actually warms my office a bit.
837. Captain Caffeine and I watched more episodes of CSI Miami! It’s kind of confusing seeing them out of order but it’s interesting, anyway.
838. I got more done on my new scarf
839. I got my packages ready to mail tomorrow and printed a Priority Mail postage label
840. Today is my last installment of my Christmas gifts for writers
841. The ending of Les Miserables still makes me cry. Or actually, maybe it makes me cry even more nowadays. Might be age and hormones.
842. I’m working more on the third book in my series, and it’s exciting to work on a new story.
843. It’s fun singing to my musicals and exercising my voice. I haven’t sung like this in years.
844. I’ve taken down all my brainstorming Post-Its from book 2 so I can put up Post-Its for book 3
845. We got a gift certificate for a place my husband can go for lunch near his workplace.
846. I had a good laugh with Captain Caffeine tonight about him falling asleep in the recliner
847. I already picked the music for the Sunday I lead worship, December 31st.
848. I figured out how to get to the mochi shop tomorrow to pick up my order for my relatives.
849. I have plenty of bubble pack mailers for my book giveaways
850. I’ll get a lot done today on my errands, and then I’m done for Christmas


  1. I'm honored to be one of your gifts. :-)
    I'm thrilled you enjoyed the manuscript, and it's such a HUGE relief to have it turned in before Christmas.

    Merry merry Christmas! Blessings!

  2. I love musicals too! Have you listened to/seen Wicked? The cd is my favorite! Sometimes the soundtrack isn't good as a stand alone CD, but SOOO not the case with Wicked!
