I’ve made some rookie mistakes with this book that’s coming out this fall (cross fingers, make a wish it’s still on schedule), but how was I to know what to do? Stressful things have been slung at me, one after the other, which has resulted in a very strange summer. To top it off, now, another columnist is plagiarizing some of my old columns! Why do people have to be so weird? I don’t know what to do. If I complain, I could be seen as a whiner. If I do nothing, she’ll end up winning a Pulitzer Prize for my work. . . . well, it COULD happen, you know. The way things have been going, it would.
Anyway, I love looking at fun, inspiring, pretty, distracting sorts of things. My lagniappe Pinterest page is full of fun sorts of images that make me feel better. An on-line scrapbook of sorts.
Here’s one of the things that distracts me from this cruel world — pretty shoes.
I don’t think I could really walk in these, but they sure are fun to look at. Feet candy. They are the kind of shoes talk show hostesses wear while they are sitting in chairs, dangling their feet around. I’m sure when commercial breaks come and they have to run backstage, they kick them off. At least, I would.
This shirt is also pinned on my Lagniappe page. I think I’ll send one to the chick who’s lifting my pithy words and using them for her own.
And if my own tiny issues weren’t bad enough, the entire world seems to have gone crazy this summer. Such meanness and anger from every corner of our world. It’s a strange place in which we live, these days.
I’ll continue working on the book, and at some point, I’ll organize my homeschool plan for this coming year, (he’s a senior!!! How did that happen??).

Happy hot August days to you, and hang in there. A new day is just around the corner!
