An odd batch of delights:

     First and foremost, 'Delarun' progress! On Sunday I passed the 10,000 word mark, and this evening I finished the third chapter. After floundering around in chapter two for about two weeks, it feels fabulous to finish chapter three in two consecutive nights! Just one remaining for this section.

     A treat in the mailbox today! A package from my wonderful aunt with spanish candy and fudge! =D Wow!

     Pixar is a treasure! I'm getting increasingly excited about their next movie, 'Up' especially after I watched some more trailers today. They the best!

Good to hear about all the writing progress. We also received our package with
candy today. A special treat indeed. That fudge is so yummy.
Will need to look at the Up trailer sometime.

Glad to hear you got yours too and my post wasn't a spoiler! I have one piece of your Valentine's candy left, so it was good timing. =)

You should! It's quite fun.

There are certainly some delights there! But what is spanish candy?

Thanks! I feel like I'm lagging, since at my current rate, I won't even make 100k this year. But that's partly due to losing time with book 4 editing. Must. Have. Patience. ;)

'Spanish candy' is just a blanket term for the candy I associate with my relatives and got to eat in New York and Puerto Rico. I looked at the one my aunt sent me: 'Dulce de Leche' or 'Milk Cream' (though I prefer the Spanish names). It's actually made in the U.S., I guess the size of the Cuban populace in Florida is a large enough niche. I know some of the stuff I had was made in Puerto Rico or even Spain. When I was a kid, I though guava paste (Guayaba) was the best thing in creation and I always looked forward to when we'd get some in a package or have some on a visit. (They'd send us Puerto Rican avocadoes too, far better than the warty little Florida ones! ;)
