Well, once again the State Fair cookies I brought in were a hit at work. It's quite fun--I've done this a few years now, and I hope to keep doing it a few more. Price goes up every year though, and once it passes $15, I think I'll have to stop. Ah, but it is fun how happy those cookies make everybody (and how fast they started calling it a 'tradition' because they don't want it to end!). But who doesn't like fresh-baked chocolate-chip cookies? ;)

     And, I finished my third run-through of the written half of book 4 today. Caught more this time because I changed the font before going through it--a fun little trick to try to get my brain to spot things better. Assuming I can get some decent sleep uninterrupted by thunderstorms (unlike last night) hopefully I can finish off the few small Hope's Passage tweaks pretty soon. Chugging ahead...

     It's also been wryly entertaining learning everything not to do using interference paints. I think I'm getting close to done with this craft-painting project though, and it just means I'll be all the wiser for the next one!

Every day is a good day for cookies! ^_^

Hmm, maybe next year you could start a cookie fund a week or two before the fair? Put up a little bucket on your desk for people to drop in some money, to help fund the cookies ^_^ You can tell them that "tradition" needs "funding." ^_~

Congrats on getting through the third run-through! Do you change the font each time you do that? That is a good idea, though, for catching things that slip by other times.

Have a good afternoon!

Oh, yes!

Hah, somehow I don't think that would fly. ;)

I should have changed the font the second time through, but clean forgot. My first time was for revisions as much as anything else.

You too!

State Fair cookies, They are so good when warm. I wonder if they have here.

Good news on the run-through. How many are you planning on doing? SD

You'd think they'd have either mini donuts or cookies or both there.

I'm planning on stopping with three, next I want to do some small additions to Hope's Passage and then hopefully force myself back into book 1.
