update on "The Book"

Just a quick update on the book.

After some editorial advice, and more importantly, practical advice from a reader, I am doing some fairly extensive editing.  It seems I need to implement the cardinal rule of speech-writing:  tell them what you're going to tell them; tell them; tell them what you told them.  Several people have commented on the content recently and said I needed to put "xxx" in the book, or wanted to know about something - and it is plainly written, right there in front of them!!  So, evidently I must emphasize it twice more.  ;-)

The "dead stop" came a few weeks ago when I wrote a two-page addition where there was a gap (though the editor was surprised, not realizing there was a gap.)  The computer was acting up, and that two-page edit is gone without a trace!  How can it do that?!  That was about enough discouragement, since it was also accompanied with a few other changes in my life (like thinking about selling the trailer...)

All prayers that the words would flow from my fingertips with wisdom and power greatly appreciated.  Wouldn't hurt to ask for organization skills and a better use of the time I have available, also.  Not to mention a little stability in my life, so other things don't get in the way!

Thanks, ya'll!

The Cutest Use for Old Keys!

Have you seen these snowmen yet?  I found them on The WHOot 

There were a few other suggestions in the comments, like making brooches or pendants.  I was thinking a key chain! 

My friend's daughter saw the picture and went into peels of delight!  I guess that means I must take over the supplies and we will make them.  Breaks my poor little heart, ya know?  
What would you do with them?

Would that my photography skills and equipment were a bit better, but here are the snowman keys we made:

Check out the guy third from the right.  He looks evil!  We had a grand time making these.  Thanks, Stacey!  Great idea!

Feeling a bit like nothing is ever going to get finished. 

Really, only The Book.  It seems there are several things that I neglected to include that would make it more logical to an uninitiated reader.  So, back to adding more pages!

And then... to make it cheaper for me to get copies when I want them, I'm working on a version, also.  Which means making a cover.  I could work on photos forever and ever amen... always something to tweek!

Here are the two frontrunners.

Someone one pray for me that I can get this thing finished!!  Thanks!
