Friday Five

Happy Friday! I hope everyone has had a good week! Now lets all list 5 random things about our week.

  1. Yesterday was a good writing day. I am so grateful for that! I haven’t had many of those lately and it felt pretty darned good. Plus I love Justice and Liza (AKA Beth). In this book, they’ve endured a lot and grown up so much, I’m actually a little like a proud mama :-)
  2. Still waiting to hear on my STAT MRI. But yesterday was a better pain day to, so again, let’s focus on the good.
  3. I’m getting my hair cut this morning. And by cut, I mean bangs only! We have the layers in my hair the way shaped the way I want them, I’d just like them longer.
  4. If you guys are reading this, I need to know–what do you think is a good pool day dessert?
  5. I bought some coconut scented body wash that I love. However I don’t care for dried coconut in baked goods–that’s just wrong. I like fresh coconut though.

And don’t forget, Monday is the release for SAVAGED VOWS, book 2 in the Savaged Illusions trilogy! Ironically, this is one of my favorite books I’ve written, and yet it’s being released with little fanfare. There just hasn’t been time. And just a programming note: Be sure to read SAVAGED DREAMS first.

Now it’s your turn to share your Friday Five!

    Pool dessert? Let me check my recipes… Yay on the release and even bigger YAYS for a good writing day and less pain. My five…

    1. I’m not ready for Florida. Ugh.

    2. After being pirated, though I still haven’t heard from iBooks, it appears my book WAS taken down. Yay.

    3. I’m going to write on the plane. No. Seriously. Stop laughing.

    4. I found an awesome outfit I can mix and match for 3 fancy events at Nationals. I consider that a WIN!

    5. I think I figured out where I went wrong in the plot/timeline of the current WIP. Which is why I will be working on the plane because I sure ain’t gettin’ it done at my desk! :lol:

    Links to my blog with some recipes:
    Graham Cracker Eclair Cake: (has pudding, chocolate and graham cracker crusty stuffs)
    Coconut Snowball Cake:
    New York Cheesecake Cookies:
    Just some ideas… Have a great weekend!

    Well…that’s a first! My comment is awaiting moderation? I guess because I put links to the recipe blogs on my site. :roll: Please take me out of moderation jail, Jen! :lol:

    Silver, sorry about moderation jail! No idea why the comment went to moderation. I got the notice in my email and was surprised. I rescued you.

    The cheesecake cooks look yummy! I think I’m going with root beer floats because…time!!!

    1) Deadlines and trips don’t mix. But you will have a great time once your there!
    2) So glad the book was taken down. I was so furious for you. I still can’t access iBooks to check mine.
    3) I’m trying not to laugh. I did a ton of work on the plane and in the airport when I went to NY.
    4) That’s a huge score on your outfits! I often go with summer dresses, one sweater and sandals now–light and simple.
    5) If you figured out the solution, then you can work on a plane. Bring earplugs or or something to tune out your surroundings

    Have a safe, productive and fun trip!!

    1. Very happy to hear that yesterday was a good writing day :).
    2. I see a correlation here. Good writing and less pain day. I’m anxious to hear about your MRI too ;).
    3. Hope the cut went well and the bangs perfect ;).
    4. Ice cream sandwich cookies. Buy a bunch of huge cookies, spread softened ice cream on one and top with another – freeze. YUM!
    5. I just love coconut :).

    You know we’ll be spreading the word on VOWS Monday :).

    1. Hot and humid – hate it!
    2. Vacuum day – arm kills :(.
    3. PeeWee is doing well with his parents away. Hubs even sent his mom a video of him on the much hated rug ;).
    4. I ordered a pizza and sent hubs to the wrong place to get it. They could find it (wonder why;)) so made him one for free. Now I have to make it up to both place – eeek.
    5. Just had my death wish coffee arrive. I love this coffee and it had free shipping the other day.

    Have a great weekend!

    Viki, I’ll let you know when I hear on the MRI. Thanks for the ice cream cookie sandwich idea :-)

    Onto yours:

    1) I feel for you on the humidity!
    2) I don’t know how you vacuum with that arm :-(
    3) Aww on PeeWee!
    4) I cracked up on the pizza mix up! That’s too funny.
    5) Enjoy your Death Wish coffee :-)

    Have a great weekend!

    Ugh. I missed blogs completely this morning. Yay for awesome writing days! And Savaged Vows! And everything! I have no clue about pool desserts. I just like desserts. I’d think something fruity and light, though.

    1) I went fishing this morning which was part of the reason I wasn’t here.
    2) I checked the numbers and I wrote over 15K on this story since last Wednesday. Yay.
    3) Did I happen to mention this story is called Sleeping Ugly? It’s a lot of fun to write. Mostly.
    4) I’m in the muddled middle right now, which is making my doubt everything I’m writing currently.
    5) I just finished watching The Great British Baking Show and now I’m hungry, but it’s bed time soon. Gah.

    Have an awesome weekend. :hugs:

    B.E., I love the title SLEEPING UGLY!! Hope you had a great time fishing, and boy do I feel the middle of the book muddle too :-)
