So much to gush about!

     Yesterday was one of the very best days of the year: a payday Friday AND t'DoL's birthday! Can hardly beat that!

     My coworkers greatly enjoyed the goodies I brought in (so did I) and then I had fun last night with popcorn, mozzerella sticks, leftover sweets, and Trader Joe's Spicy Cider. Yum!

     Set up my 5th LJ (even though I won't be doing much with it for a few years) and was delighted to get the 'Under Construction' image for it finished last evening.

     Goodies in the mail--clothes from JcPenney including a lovely pair of grey jeans, and a even more lovely thank-you note from Christina! (Can't forget the Netflix dvd either--it was a great haul in the mailbox on Friday!)

     I noticed a LOT of squirrel activity Thursday, since I'm walking home right at sunset now, and they're all frantically preparing for winter...so on Friday I decided to count. I got thirteen different squirrels on my way home, it might take a while to beat that total!

     A coworker asked me the spelling of a word, and I gave it to him...with that same sense of amazement and disbelief I feel every time it happens. I stunk at spelling as a kid and teenager; but being t'DoL's biographer for 16 years appears to have bashed enough correct spellings into my thick skull that I'm now better than the 'average' person, at least of those I work with. But it doesn't matter--I will always be amazed when somebody asks ME to spell a word for them (especially when it's my boss!).

It was a nice day, despite some craziness at work. And pleasant to have a relaxing evening.

Sounds like some lovely celebrations there! I hope tDoL enjoyed his birthday as much as you did :D

I enjoyed hearing about the squirrels--it's so interesting to find out about how the seasons manifest in other parts of the world. I imagine they were quite tricky to count!

I loved your little "Under Construction" sign. It has me absolutely itching to find out more. Is it possible for me to read book 4 or are there some shorts I need to see first?

Glad to hear that it is all going well. You're sounding much perkier now that it is well and truly autumn.

He alternated between hiding and trying to distract me with the next chapter in 'Delarun,' it seems like! ;)
The squirrels weren't too hard--it seemed like nearly every yard had its resident, and if there was more than one in a yard, that usually led to scuffles. They're quite active and obvious this time of year--looking plump too!
Glad you liked the sign! I'm very grateful Vue only crashed 3 times, and I didn't pull out any hair over that project!
And of the shorts you haven't read, most are in the 'Hope's Passage' section and don't count, and others are the book 4 big-spoiler variety. I do think 'Beside the Bookcase' is the only general short you haven't read (excluding 'Heritage' since I just put that up). Does this mean I should frantically remake the book 4 chapter .pdfs I've been procrastinating on doing for half a year now? ;)
It's wonderful to have good sleep and my body back in sync after a stint on California time, that's for sure!

No need to be frantic about the pdfs--I'm a little swamped at the moment. If you could let me know when they are done, though, I'd be delighted to read them.

Did it take you a long time to adjust after coming back from California?

Okay, they're on my to do list for this week. =)

I think by the weekend I was mostly adjusted. Having to get up for work at 5:30 am when it feels like 3:30 am California time rather forces the issue!

Wow!! It sounds like a fabulous day!

By the way, in my note, I forgot to mention how much we love the card!! I've been trying to keep it on the fridge so I can get my hyarmi fix whenever I walk by, but I have to keep rescuing it from all the love the kids keep giving to it whenever my back is turned and they can pull a chair up to get it, too!

Re: =)
It sure was! =)

I'm glad you're all enjoying the card! I've used up most of the first batch already, so I plan to order more from CafePress. I'm very happy with how it came out.
