"I have a good book and a cup of coco, it's really lovely."

 I found ink for one of my typewriters. It isn't the little 1910 one I like best out of all my collection, but a powder blue 1950 something one. All I need is a poodle skirt and I could be set, with my hair in a high pony tail and saddle shoes. 

 As I said though, I found ink. I found it at Michaels, which made me very happy and I snatched some up.  I now plan to write a whole book by typewriter. Not sure which book it will be, perhaps NaNo, Which I do have an idea for, though I am tossing around a couple of ideas so I've no settled on idea.

 That said, writing by typewriter is enjoyable even if Dog hates the clickety clack. 

 I don't have much to say today. Probably because I am tired but also in the middle of a good book. So for now I will head off, and enjoy my book and tea and hold a new understanding for Mrs. Finch from Tintin.

"Don't worry, Carrots, you can have it back, in 48 hours."

 Wherein Jack is about to submit....

 No, it isn't So Much Owed. But the short story I mentioned a long while ago, Finding the Magic. Tomorrow, if all goes well, I will be submitting it to Dove Publishers.

 In other news, I am hand writing the forth Haphazard book, editing book one, editing So Much Owed, and typewriting another book I am not ready to talk about yet. It is nice to be writing again!

 Now I leave you with this song, because you could use a painful but beautiful song in your lives.

"What's there, mama?"

 Wherein Jack has little to say.


 as in next to nothing....

 EXCEPT! I SAW MY BOOK IN THE LIBRARY TODAY! I might have held it and grinned like a dope. MY BOOK IS NOW A LIBRARY BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 What else?

 It's cold here, if we need to resort to talking about the weather. Cold and perfect for fingerless gloves and tea and writing. LET NANO COME! I AM READY! Sorta.

 I am trying to get homework done and blogging done on time - I say as I am a day late - before I go and babysit tonight. 

 And that is all I have right now. Boring, I know.

 Deal with it.

"It's upside down, isn't it?"

 I'M BACK! And I feel better. Not MUCH better but better. Ready to have another go at this.

 So here is a song. Haphazard this time!!

 Wherein Jack is taking two weeks away.

 After a long debate on my part, and some pushing from a concerned friend, I have agreed to taking a holiday. I am going to rest and read and write and try very hard to catch up on sleep.

 So see you again on the nineteenth. 

 Farewell, Jack

"Pooh who?"

 Fall is in the air. I can feel it each morning when I wake up, and my toes are cold. I can even smell it. Soon it will be here, killing my flowers and turning the leaves colors. I'm not sad to see it coming. Summer, though long and hard, was blessed and filled with adventure. 

 Last summer was my first away from home. That meant no camping trips with my brothers, no nighttime hikes up mountains, and I missed them.

 This summer was my first living on my own. In many ways it was harder than my first summer being away from my family.

 I had more memories come back I had to work on. I slept less. I was jittery and on edge and had all kinds of problems to deal with.

 But it was one of the best summers I've had in a while as well.

 I explored, spoiled some little sisters, got into some mishaps, made new friends....

 This summer, after one thing after another, I have come to see better than ever before just how blessed I am. God has taken care of me in ways I never thought possible. He has given me a second family, I got a book published, did adult things and somehow survived them. Best of all my summer involved ice cream, BBQ's, sunsets and swimming, beaches, travels,

 And there, I took a moment to be sentimental. Now I have to go and figure out why my cookies smell like play dough.
