Recent goodies:

     The fun of being completely and utterly WRONG. I thought this spring was going to be just awful for thaw-induced flooding, but we had weeks of gradual melting of the snow, and now it's basically all gone and the ground is thawing...without a drop of water in my closet! What a treat!

     Since not knowing was making me jittery, I sat down Monday evening and laboriously worked out the use tax for every eligible online purchase in 2009...and it was lower than 2008 despite sales tax going up, AND I'll be getting a buck or two back overall (use tax payment versus tax refunds), rather than owing like last year. HURRAH!

     Got to the point in book 5 where I get to put in 'The Ballad of Saenna.' Two goodies: t'DoL wasn't as ornery about it as I thought he might be, and I looked it up and discovered I'd written it in July of 2001. So at least it was less than a decade before I finally got to use the whole ballad in my books! *laughs*
