Captain’s Log, Supplemental

Bible in 90 Days: day 83. Yup, still doing it. It’s been so interesting doing this a second time. I’m catching more stuff this time around that I didn’t catch last year.

I read 1st and 2nd Timothy and was convicted about being a soldier of Christ, and being more self-disciplined about the work God has called me to do.

Knitting: I’m doing a sweet little tank top for the summer with this faboo soft cotton blend yarn from Knitpicks.com. It’s also this wild grapeade shade.

I’ve already decided my next sock. I’m going to try to make a toe-sock. I’m taking Michelle Cho’s toe-sock pattern and altering it to see if I can do a toe-sock from the top down rather than toe-up. I’m also going to use Knitpicks Memories yarn in Hawaii color blend (on the left)! I think this will be fun.

Speed reading: Inspired by a post on my friend Georgiana D’s blog, I have bought a speed reading book and will hopefully learn how to speed read. I read the introduction today. LOL

Writing: My developmental editor, Becky Shingledecker, just emailed me that I’d get my developmental edits by the end of the month, so that’s about 6 months almost to the day from when I turned in the original rough draft. I think I will pay more attention to dates from now on so I can predict about when each step in the publishing process will take place.

Diet: What is it about Aunt Flo where you gain five pounds overnight and crave salt like a fiend? Nuff said.

Ugh! I totally overate yesterday. I did exercise a little, though—a little walking. But I always overeat when I’m writing! Is the writing worth the extra poundage?

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
