Yesterday, it was spring at my house. Sixty degrees, lovely, sunny. Tulips had broken through the soil. This morning, I woke up to this:






The pictures don't really do it justice. First, I took them with a phone camera. Second, the angle doesn't really show that there's at least 5" of snow there at 7:00 in the morning. And third, you can't feel how cold it is!


But it doesn't really matter because I'm celebrating this morning. First, yesterday I finally shipped the completed manuscript of PEPPERMINT TWISTED. To the best of my knowledge, it's scheduled for December 2007 release, but I'll keep you posted if that changes. And second, today I get to spend time with the World's Most Incredible Grandchild for the second time this week.


Now I ask you . . . if you were me, wouldn't you drive through a raging snowstorm to get to that child???

We are supposed to get snow here in MN. Grr I hope not! That is great about Peppermint Twisted! I loved the first two and can't wait to see where you take the characters in this one.

Thanks for stopping by! We're getting snow again today. I'm watching the storm move in on TV, trying to motivate myself to climb out from under this blanket and do something productive :)
