One Thousand Gifts-34

Captain’s Log, Stardate 12.29.2006

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

851. I had a good vacation time with family.
852. It was so nice to come back with all those Merry Christmas comments from you guys! Thanks!
853. My dad was really pleased with his Christmas gift, and so was my mom
854. It was wonderful to sleep in my own bed. I slept like a log.
855. Although I cut my finger, it’s healing nicely
856. I’m on day 32 of my Bible in 90 Days. Job is hard to read. It’s not black and white, which makes me have to pay attention carefully. Not everything Job’s friends say is untrue, and not everything Job says is really what God wants to hear. Job gets pretty bitter.
857. Captain Caffeine got a chance to sleep in when we got back from vacation.
858. I got some new books for review
859. Writing.com sent me a cute bumper sticker with their Christmas card
860. I got an Amazon gift e-mail so I’m going to buy CDs!
861. My online friend ChristianFictionQueen gave me good recommendations for music to buy
862. I saw all the CSI Miami episodes we have saved on our TiVo
863. I saw all the Battlestar Galactica episodes we had saved on our TiVo
864. Captain Caffeine is going to let me borrow his video iPod when I go to Hawaii in February so I can watch Pride and Prejudice on the plane ride. I think I’ll put The Lord of the Rings and Bubblegum Crisis on there, too.
865. I ordered more yarn for more scarves
866. Got lots of money for Christmas
867. I exercised!
868. I’m eating lots of vegetables
869. I made chicken breasts again and they turned out as good as the last time, so it’s not a fluke!
870. I finished my RubyZine column early
871. I put the RubyZine issue up on the blog/website, finally
872. I cleaned out my Inbox!
873. I love iTunes for playing my Broadway musicals—no need to change the CDs
874. I figured out some Japanese traditions for my manuscript. Funny, my family always did these traditions and I had no idea what they meant.
875. I asked one of the high school girls for a Japanese translation. I hope she gets the message and gets back to me before I have to turn in my manuscript.

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
