This blog follows how a romance novel set in the Borders of medieval Scotland is researched, written and hopefully *hopefully* published.

Woo-Hoo! Survived the 4th!

No fireworks (bummer), and the rain pretty much hung around all day, but the temperature was quite tolerable for all the pre-guest work. I kicked a couch (sneaky thing ;-) and now have taped one toe to the other. It hurts like heck.

The meal (marinated chicken, grilled zucchini, carrot and raisin salad, whole wheat rolls) was met with approval (my sister-in-law even had seconds and wanted the recipe for the dessert ("Pudding Eclair"). My homemade rolls were scarfed down with gusto and everyone (except the children, of course, were lubed with decent white wine(Duckhorn)). Grilling was poorly timed (the rain got worse), but the guests were late (their normal M.O.) and so everything worked out well.

Tomorrow I rush off to town for rearranging art in the shop and I need to pick up seafood and corn for Friday's guests (neighbors who REALLY helped out on the farm when I had to be away with my Mom).

Sunday I'll be rushing off to a christening --man, I need a gift! Better do that tomorrow, too.

And yes, sometime tomorrow I'll post a new word-- Hope you all had a very happy 4th of July and moved closer to achieving personal independence somehow.

Much love!

You are the Huntress... No matter how many times you try and prove yourself to be good, you always seem to be stuck in the same rut, with the reputation as a "bad girl". Guys love to hang around you because you're easy to talk too.
