The New Venture proposal went out to the agent, who really liked it, and promptly asked for an expanded partial. Seems there is already some interest in it. Got that done and e-mailed off, and at this point I'm feeling cautiously optimistic about the possibility of seeing a little Publishing Fairy dust land on this project.
Work has kept me so busy I am now horribly behind on e-mail. I'm going to try to make a dent in it this weekend. Today the kids are off from school and they own me for the day, and it looks like the girls are planning to have an all-day Twilight party, which means twelve hours of watching this:
And the kissing scene! Must see that a couple thousand times, too. God, I hope I don't fall asleep again. Btw, there is nothing more insulting to a couple of 14 year old girls than when Mom starts snoring in the middle of the KISSING scene.
I can't help it. I know, he's cute, but I'm old enough to be his mother. Give me someone old enough for me to seriously lust over, like Daniel Craig, or I fall asleep.
Along with the mourning dove nesting between our birdhouses, we discovered a couple of beautiful red foxes have taken up residence in an old gopher tortoise den on our property. I haven't been able to get a photo of Mom or Dad because they're mostly nocturnal, but Dad has been running around a lot at dusk so I should be able to snap him soon. Since Mom hasn't left the den, we expect she'll whelp in a few weeks.
And, finally, Cole discovered where the black glider snake who keeps showing up in the front yard is living, in what I think are some old mole tunnels near our pine trees in the side yard. We saw this guy slither into the entryway concealed in the grass:
And now I'm so wiped I think I'm going to crawl off to my bed and be unconscious for a while. Good night, all.
