Looks like this lion is roaring. Nope. That’s just a yawn. It is all in the context which you lose in an image sometimes. That can be cool or it can be weird depending on how you take it.
Much like my shopping trip with BG last night. She and her friends have decided they want to go to the Homecoming dance in a few weeks, so she needed a dress. My moment of absolute weirdness came from shopping for her while the music playing in the background is what I would have heard at my own Homecoming dance years ago. Talk about messing with the mind. Or making me feel old. I’m still not entirely sure which.
I sent off my manuscript to my editor over the weekend and got confirmation that we are about 3 weeks out from getting started on it. I’m pretty sure I’ve found who I want to work with on my cover design as well after confirming they will work with my photo. It is all kind of terrifying and nerve wracking, but it is forward movement.
Upside… We have a working AC. Downside, the temps dropped and it hasn’t needed to be turned on yet, though we did close up the house and turn it on to test out how well it removes the humidity even when it doesn’t need to cool (awesome, awesome, AWESOME feature).
Okay, WP isn’t liking featured images today so….
Crazy week between the absolute cluster that is back to school registration, attempting to have some family time and getting the kids some final appointments in before school starts up again. Gonna be scarce, but here… enjoy a seriously cute Blue Monkey.
Janie Leeds from Authentically 50 nominated me for a blogger award. I genuinely appreciate the thought so much, that she thinks what I do here is worthy of an award. That said, I’m gracefully declining, hopefully without offense.
Blog awards are nice and can be fun, but they just aren’t my thing. I do what I do because I enjoy it. I love photography and ranting and raving about books and being able to unload the garbage that runs around in my head on a regular basis and to sprinkle it all with the occasional platform for me to humbly brag about something I’m proud of. If any of that makes someone smile or think or makes them feel less alone in the world or inspires them, then that is just icing on a delicious cake.
I follow other bloggers that I find interesting for a variety of reasons, so trying to ever pick one that fits is always hard because they are all worthy for one reason or another. That is why that section of links is called “Awesomeness from Others”.
So instead, I’ll offer some animal cuteness.
