~Sending you lots of positive thoughts on your book!~ Mandy


LOL! I am SO glad to hear I am not the only one who has burnt hard boiled eggs! I tell myself I will remember to go check what's on the stove but then I get sidetracked on the computer and geesh! Time FLIES by. The crowing rooster timer sounds fabulous!

How exciting that your book project is moving along so well. What fun this will be for all of us to one day enjoy.

The best thing of all is your daughter's return home. This must be such a blessing for you.


I burnt my first pan of eggs just the other night, didn't notice til I heard the shells crack.Is Grace available?


Your daughter returning home... Yea! When a child (no matter what age) comes home, it is such a blessing! Congratulations on finishing your book. I can't wait to buy one. Oh, if Grace decides to patent and sell her "Trusty Timer" I'll take one of those too. What a hoot, or should I say what a crow! :-) Congratulations!


I'm so impressed about you learning CS3 on the fly like that! Those are some really tough programs to get a grip on. You are truly an amazingly multi-talented woman!! I can't wait to buy the book!

Hooray about your daughter returning! My oldest daughter is devouring every out-of-state college catalog she can get her hands on. It's nice to know they come back!


You're awesome. I think it is so wonderful that you're working on a book! That's BIG :o) I can't wait to see it. You must be so happy that your daughter's coming home. Have a great weekend with your dear family.


I am so excited about this book!!!!


What a joy to have your daughter back home!! Enjoy!!


Mandy, I'm very happy for you and all your hard work! I can't wait to see your book!!!

What a blessing to have your daughter back home. You must be wearing a smile from ear to ear!

Good to hear that your book project is coming together so nicely, but I gather it must be hard work! You are lucky to have a supportive family. And how wonderful for you that your daughter is coming home!
I tend to forget everything when I'm on the computer too, so I have made it a rule to ALWAYS set the timer when I have something cooking to remind myself to check on it ;-)


That is so exciting, Vicki, and I'm very intrigued about your putting this book together yourself. Who are you using to make the actual physical book then?

Yeah Amber. Children coming home/ the best! Good luck with your book project.


Good luck, sweet tidings to your book project!

Or are you publishing it yourself?
Can I be first in line to buy one???I am so excited! This is wonderful! I can't wait!

Bonnie Buckingham

OH I can't wait for your book!
And your daughter coming home.
Sweet reunion!



Admirable and exciting, publishing your own book. This is very exciting, so is the news of your daughter's return. Obviously adventuring, creativity, and a thirst for knowledge runs in the family.

so excited for your book...
I have a wool blanket that I got this summer at a yard sale for a song, that will be perfect.

hope your enjoying the time with your daughter!


How exciting to have your daughter returning after such a long time away!

P.S. I expect the blogger problem has something to do with all the upgrading they did awhile back. If you have a google account it's much easier to just sign in with that.
