Gratitudes:      My itty-bitty pump is…

     My itty-bitty pump is definitely the hero of the weekend. Don't want to imagine how miserable things would be without it.

     I'm glad the flooding didn't start until 1 pm, so I was able to get a bunch done in the morning, including some writing. Also very grateful it slowed down in the evening so I could sleep.

     Making wallpaper versions of my recent story illustrations and adding them to my rotating wallpaper program reminded me of another blessing. Back in 2000 when I got my first computer, I had barely any images based off my writing to use...but now in March of 2009, I have 38 different wallpapers, and some others I use at work that I don't at home. What a treat! Pretty soon I'll be just using them and no other images, since they mean the most and encourage me the most. =)

     Yesterday with all the bailing making the afternoon too fragmented for much besides reading and simple things, I was able to sift through those images and make 19 wallpapers at 1024 x 600 pixels for my upcoming new 'toy.' It will feel like 'home' from the very start!

Glad to hear the flooding slow down so you could sleep. Glad your little pump is holding up.
Wonderful on all the illustrations you have of your stories.

Yes, not having to get up during the night is a BIG blessing!
The pump is holding up and it slowed down sooner today, thank God!

I'm happy with what I've got though I always want to make more. =)

Sounds like that pump was definitely a solid investment.

*hugs* I hope you manage to rest well. At this rate you'll be exhausted before summer!

It certainly was! =)

I'm glad I had good rest over the weekend, because last night was awful. At least the melting has to run out soon!
