The first Chapter of my novel was edited last week. Today I plot. Needless to say, I am back in
Weebly school, trying to make my website look like it should look.
Whew! Who Knew Fundraising for a non-profit Project could take over one's life? We have raised over $8,000 toward the building of the PERMANENT BUTTERFLY MEMORIAL MONUMENT in Grand Park. Thank you for your generous donations and for helping us to bui
Tonight I am putting the finishing touches on my website. (Yes, I built it.) Learning new things is not anathema to me...never has been. To me, not to learn, is not to be fully alive.

There are those who say that launching a book is a lot like giving birth. After the birth, perhaps there will be time to spend on The Butterfly Garden.
Today, in addition to editing the galleys, I have enjoyed the ripe figs from the fig bush that threatens to take over the world. From a twig it is taller than the house, provides a repast for the morning feeding birds and provides entertainment for the pesky gray squirrel who enjoys picking off the green ones and rolling them around the driveway...he has to go. His presence is no longer welcomed in the fig bush....by the birds...or by me. He is being wasteful...and we happen to like figs.
Today I have enjoyed watching the little boys next door who have opened their first lemonade stand. Their first sale was exciting. They danced around, whooped, got ready for the next customer and took turns holding their first dollar. Exciting stuff!
And then a golfcart load of folks stopped for lemonade. I wonder how those little boys might be at selling books.
I truly believe that when someone decides to do good deeds, God moves Heaven and Earth to help.
