Happy Friday!

Happy Friday!

Less than two weeks until the RWA Conference in San Diego! I’m not ready. But I’m so looking forward to a break! I’m pouring everything into the revision of Savaged Dreams, and I have a long ways to go yet. Fixing the specific problems is easy, but working on getting more emotion in there and really “baring your characters souls” as my editor said takes a lot of time and effort.

Um…anyone seen my Super Writer Cape? I seem to have lost it.

No? Sigh…guess I’ll just have to do this the old fashion way by putting my butt in the chair, and keep typing.



Monday is the Fourth of July! How did that happen? It seems like it was just New Years. My weekend will be mostly working, and then Monday I think we’re having Wizard’s brother over and maybe CPA Boy? I need to find out and nail it down, LOL! We’ll have fun, and pulling a BBQ together is pretty easy. OH! And I’ll make a dessert! I’m looking forward to that. I’ve been following Weight Watchers and working out, so I’m ready to splurge for a day!

So what should I make for my big splurge dessert? Any suggestions?

What are your weekend and Fourth of July plans?

    I’d make a “Broken Glass” cake, but would use red and blue Jell-O to be all festive for the 4th. This was a Christmas staple (red, green, and orange Jell-O) when I was growing up. Now I fix it in the summer because light and yummy. The one thing I do differently from this recipe is I sprinkle some of the graham cracker crust stuffs on top. (All the recipes are pretty much the same but this one had red and blue Jell-O – :lol: )

    My 4th will be spent working. I think we’re meeting the kids for lunch tomorrow after siren test but then everyone will chill out. I may make a brisket. Just depends. LOL

    Have a great holiday, everyone!

    Silver ohhh! That’s a pretty cake! I’m not a big fan of jello, but it looks perfect for a hot day. Thanks for sharing!

    Siren test? Not sure what that is. Hope lunch is fun and you have a great weekend.

    Sorry I couldn’t find your cape ;) but I’m sure you’re doing fine without it.

    You guys should have a really nice 4th. It’s a little easier with a smaller group. We’re going to do ribs too.

    I’m doing a sour cherry pie. Maybe a pie will work for you too. Or maybe a custard with fresh berries? No matter what you make I’m sure it will be to die for!

    You and your family have a very Happy and Safe 4th of July weekend :)!

    LG and Only belong to a HAM radio group who work with a local municipality on emergency communications. First Saturday of every month is “siren test.” Members go out and wait at each emergency warning siren. The city tests them and the group reports whether their siren is working or needs repair. We often meet the kids after for Mex food at their fav restaurant. :D

    Viki, the pie sounds good! I’m probably going to go with my standard kahlua chocolate cake out of laziness :-)

    Have a great weekend!
