Did I Ever Tell You That I Wrote a Book?

It's true.  I wrote a Halloween kid's book, that I never did anything with.  Been years since I've seen it.  Not even sure if the copy I printed is the most current.  But since I'm home sick anyway, I figured I'd give it a read.

Meanwhile, I feel like Halloween is passing me by.  So many fun things to do and I'm stuck in bed.

This blows chunks.  Here's hoping my book doesn't.

  1. I think you should print it on your blog in instalments??

    1. Thanks for the comment, Ray. I haven't read this in years, be interesting to see what I remember and what I don't.

    1. It's okay, I am better than I would have been, when compared to being sick this time last year. It's a little progress, and I'm happy about that. But it does suck not to be able to be out and about enjoying autumn.

  3. Hope you get better soon. You should definitely think about publishing the book. Take care

    1. He is such good guy. Glad you liked the gifts he sent you. And yes, he went to market and loaded me up on limes and lemons and brought home a bag of newspapers with lots of coupons.

      He's a keeper.

  5. Are the puppies coming by and offering up sympathy and snuggles while you're under the weather?

    1. They really are the best pups, ever. So snuggly and warm and just two wonderful pups.

  6. Snuggle up with your pups and take it easy. You can tell us all about your book once you're feeling better. :)

    1. I'm so tired from sitting on the computer, that I think I might fall asleep at page one of my manuscript. That's bad, right?

  7. I did not know that. I knew you wrote, but I didn't know that you did a kid's Halloween book. You'll have to tell more about it!

    Hope you feel better soon!

  8. Perhaps publication (self or otherwise) beckons? Could be next Halloween's big hit!

    1. I'm better sick-wise than I would have been a year ago so I should not complain. On the mend now ... just can't do a whole lot yet.

    1. I was going to take a photo but my camera card got full again. Took me almost a year to fill it, and I've been deleting some of the shots.

      Gotta delete more. Stuff I won't use.

  11. Hope you're feeling better soon. I'm not a big fan of Halloween so I barely notice it. I do love Thanksgiving though.

    1. Oh, we are flip flopped then because I don't generally celebrate American Thanksgiving but I LOVE Halloween. Best fun ever.

    1. I finished reading it today, and it was fun to read. Nice way to relax as well. Took some notes on a few inconsistencies that I found. I dunno. Might get back into it. We'll see.

      Thanks, I am feeling better already.

      Next up, pumpkin spice rice pudding - num, num, num.

    2. Yes! Put pumpkin spice is all the things!

    1. I love it as well. Usually I make a vanilla cinnamon but with the fall here, I gotta give pumpkin a try. Especially since I started making my own pumpkin spice. So much fun.

    Get well soon!

    1. Thanks, Anne - I am on the mend so I'm happy about that. Though I just broke the washer.

  17. I hope that you will recovery very quickly !
    Why not publishing on your blog the beginning of your book ? It's the good time for an Halloween Story and we will be able to say: "Good!" "More!" or even "Stop !" !!

    1. Thanks. I'm recovering faster this time about than last year and that makes me super duper happy. Though I do feel like Halloween is going too fast.

  18. Is that the book you were working on when we first met? I often wondered if you finished it, and what you did with it.

    1. It is, and I've done NOTHING with it.
      Though I did read it and found some
      things that need fixing, overall I had
      fun reading it. Though still don't know
      just what the heck to do with the piece.
