Not too bad a 'fast' compared to some of my spring ones. Now for the fun of catching up! Here's a hodge-podge of some high points, avoiding those that will show up on my monthly summary post anyway:

     Last Monday on the bus on the way to work, I had a revelation about a very old (but necessary) plot point in the Shado-novella, and how to make it work with my story-world as it is now. Very grateful for that!

     Also had a breakthrough on how to do AND/OR searches in IDM Find, and not just one or the other. Oddly enough, since having that breakthrough, I've had things come up which practically required it, and I'd gotten by tolerably well without it for years!

     My previous boss noticed the raindrop-shaped blue lace agate I hung on the wall of my cube! Delighted, as I've had a leaf and a snowflake there for months, and it was her idea I add a raindrop for spring.

     Got the cat enclosure set up Saturday, which makes them quite happy!

     Today a coworker wiped out some formulas on an Excel spreadsheet and I thought I'd have to spend a good chunk of time very tediously putting them all in again...until I glanced at the third tab to find a note from myself from I-don't-know-how-many-years ago with the formula stashed away 'in case she erases them again'! Yay! Way to predict the future and save myself time! =D

Good to have you back on line. Glad to hear that things are going well.
That is sure a pretty blue agate.

Smart thinking on saving the formulas.

It's very nice to be back!

It's not quite as blue as the camera makes it look, but it is quite beautiful.

Yes! It must have been quite a while ago as I don't remember doing it at all.

Sounds like there have been some nice things going on for you. I loved the picture of your cube. So many lovely things to look at! The blue lace agate makes a lovely addition.

Thanks! It's getting a little cluttered there with all the Happy Meal 'Avatar' and 'How to Train Your Dragon' toys Dawn has been giving me! =)

Yay for you being back! And all your progress in April -- nice! =) Did you get to a not-so-depressing spot/break in Book 5?

Love the rain drop!

Re: Yay!
Thanks! Yes, I found a spot where Geren is pretty happy (shortly before things go south, of course ;)

The snowflake is my favorite, not biased, oh no not at all!
