Some end of week notes

Nice day here in Rittman, Ohio. I did work today in two yards. First, it was over to the in laws, where I sprayed the apple trees. They yield some good apples and we just need to keep the bugs off the trees. My mother in law makes a great apple pie and I want to make sure that she has an ample supply of apples. And my legs are now tired from pushing the mower. I need to do more pushing.

About the book: I know that over the past year I have been hinting about writing a book, and this week I have put some legs on the intention. Yes, I will be using blog posts for some of it. I also bought me a 100 sheet steno pad earlier in the week. I have a goal of filling the book on both sides by June 15. I will be taking some from out of there. Then I hope I have something that people will want to read.

Attention Northeast Ohio Bloggers: I have been thinking about this this past week. I wonder if anyone wants to get together somewhere in the area this summer for a covered dish picnic. We could meet and greet one another. I was thinking maybe somewhere in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park would be a good central place to meet. Kathy and I will bring the Rittman IGA fried chicken. Let me know what you think, either through the comments or send me an email.

Well the Cavs beat the Pistons in game one of the NBA playoffs, and the Tribe trounced the Yankees 22-4. Life is good, at least for a day.

Great news about the book. Good luck and I wish you great waves of inspiration.

Not sure if I ever told you about a series I wrote on my blog to help writers of all persuasions - you could probably Google it without any trouble.

It was a 19-part series called `Telling Write From Wrong'.

Hope it helps!

You must have some thoughts running to have a June 15th goal-good luck!
Keep me posted on the get together, I have some things going on in June, but I may see if I can crash your party.

Great idea on a get together. I just asked my hubby how long of a drive that would be for us. He says 7 or more hours. I think that's a little too far for us but I sure would like to come. I've thought about that myself.... getting together to meet. That would be awesome. Maybe someday.

Good luck with your book. I have much admiration for people who can take a dream, make it a goal, and turn it into reality.
