Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

Shoesday without pictures

I used to have a pair of electric blue snakeskin pumps with three inch high spike heels. I often wore them with a severe charcoal grey suit and looked like some Norwegian steel magnate's extremely expensive mistress. The shoes didn't fit well and kept popping off my heels unless I took hobbled mincing steps, which may have contributed to the kept-woman effect. Now I wear sensible flats and look like mistress of my own destiny. A much better fit and suitable for striding!

I got up this morning, read everyone else's blogs, then made a list of the things I need to do before Christmas. It scared me so much I went back to bed. Some things are better not viewed as a whole.

Actually, many things are in flux right now. My bowels among them. LG and I had an appointment to fix knitting issues today, but I had to cancel and she has been immensely gracious about it. You young people, here is your official warning: You will reach an age when the state of your bowels is not only vitally important to you, but a fit topic of conversation with others of your age group. You may as well get used to the idea right now.

So LG and I re-scheduled, but in the course of our converstaion, LG confided that she has taken the NaNoWriMo challenge and is writing a poem a day. Yayyy, LG!!!! Scansion ho!

And Norma, of Now Norma Knits and Red Scarf Fame, has agreed to do a blog interview about my first book, Sanna, Sorceress Apprentice. How too cool is that? Anyone else doing the NoBloMo? I happily volunteer to give you similar blog fodder in exchange for wider publicity. Book 2 should be out in early December.

Man, my head aches, too. Is there a bug going around?

    Congrats on Book II, and The Norma interview. It don't get much bigger than that. Woohoo!
    Headache? Is it stress-related? Seasonal allergies? I have the allergies going crazy right now.

    I caught my second cold of the semester from another one of my little darlings. Sniff.
    Congrats on the interview! Amazing! Go, Roxie!

    Rest, water, rest, rest. And since you're more or less in the SE of our fair metro area, I feel I should be able to interview you for MY neighborhood blog. So there!

    Yes, there is a bug going around. Don't ask me how I know. We're not going to have one of those ag-related conversations here. Now or ever. Or at least until we're both 95 and can't remember anything else to talk about. Hope you feel better soon.

    I just came from Norma's website and realized that as I read this I am sitting within a few miles of you! I am really interested in reading your first book, how do I get a copy? Do you belong the the PDX Knitbloggers?

    LOL on the shoes and the mistress bit! Hurray for the Norma and your interview! (Read it; great!) And heck yes, I'll gladly write something. You wanna talk sometime about what it's like to go through the self-publishing process? I'd kind of like to know that meself...
