GREAT BOOK NEWS on this Day 73!
Today has been a terrific day: from heading downtown to buy some pants with a gift certificate I'd been given at Christmas (now only finally did I feel good/comfortable enough to try some on!), to helping Simi with her grade one research project on Orca whales, to receiving an out-of-the-blue e-mail from the publisher of Simply Read Books. About three years ago I had a book accepted by them for publication: A Gulf Islands Alphabet. It was a non-traditional alphabet book those wove stories about the islands around here (the northern half of the San Juan Islands for my American readers!). Then for the past year-and-a-half, communication ceased. I was not receiving responses to my e-mails or anything...until tonight. I received a two-line note that said that they had found a suitable illustrator, and that they were extremely excited. Part of my wanting to get the book out there in a timely fashion was that in 2010, the Winter Olympics are coming here, which will mean a big tourist influx, plus there has also been the recent creation of the Gulf Islands National Park (more people!). So I'm thrilled!
Other news: I'M DOWN 30 POUNDS!
And...I've decided I'll do my feast for 108 days. At this point, I want to stop on a number that has some significance to me...so, 108 beads on a Bhuddhist mala.
I'm trying to encourage Ayrie of our Victoria Juice Luck group to design a small tattoo for the four of us...to commenmorate this extraordinary life-altering journey!
