Lent is OVAH, hurrah!

     It is a treat to drink orange juice again, and blueberry pomegranate mix, and have a can of root beer at the Towners. And eat sweets and cookies and candy...perhaps a little too much. Lent is over!

     Between Saturday evening and Sunday morning before church, I finally got to the end of 'Last Orphan.' But it certainly needs some pruning, so my work with the story is far from complete. It wasn't supposed to be a novella after all, and certainly isn't structured like one. Still, feels great!

     Easter Sunday was such a perfect spring day (like Mother's Day on a 'normal' year) that I had to get out to a park after church and before going to the Towners. Took a walk at Tamarack Nature Preserve and got to enjoy the tamaracks budding out, as well as see some rue anemones. Just beautiful out there!

     Had a nice time at the Towners from 12 to 7:30, and far too much to eat, with dinner followed up by angel food cake topped with strawberries. It was a lovely time.

     And then Monday night I made a platelet donation, and not only did they get a triple out of me (the max) they managed it in under two hours! Yay!

Sounds lovely!! Especially all the goodies! ;D

David and I finished Book 5 on our road trip. =) He laughed at me as I cried. Such a great ending!! ;) I want a Book 6, now!

I loved, loved, loved the epilogue. Is this what "Last Orphan" is about??

And thank you for the great Easter card!! Love you!!

Yay, I'm delighted you got to finish it! And I'm glad you want more, but 'Renewer Rising' is a long ways off.

No, 'Last Orphan' refers to last orphan of Delarun, not that particular 'lil orphan. =)

Glad you were able to make the trip!

Sounds like you had a wonderful Easter Day. Enjoy your goodies.

Tripple donation that is amazing. How did they do that when you only do
one arm?

I ate too many goodies! It will be good to have a fasting day tomorrow.

I didn't think it was possible with a single-vein donor, but a couple of the workers there have found that if they keep me very, very warm they can really crank up the machine. My platelets must be high enough, I guess.
