Friday Tidbits

It's Friday! The weekend is nearly here and I can't wait.

—As I am a big Snoopy fan AND a writer, I love Snoopy as the Literary Ace. And that makes what I found today even better... Literary Ace merchandise!!! Sweatshirts, t-shirts, mousepads,, fun! Now I'm trying to decide which one I want to order...

—I'm having a Victorian Tea at my house on Saturday. Since my living room is decorated like a Victorian Christmas, I'm quite excited. I'm going shopping after work today for food and little goodies to give to my friends. It's just going to be six of us, but my whole idea for this party was to give everyone a time to relax during this stressful holiday season. We're just going to sit back and visit, sip our tea, and eat some goodies!

—I have my ring! It is just gorgeous. A round emerald with three diamonds on each side. My husband was so sweet last night. He came home and we talked for a bit, then he got a very serious look on his face. "My beautiful wife, love of my life..." and then he pulled out the ring box. Talk about romantic! It was all the better because I'd completely forgotten about it!!!

—Thanks for all your comments on my writing dilemma...I am determined to get out of this particular "funk" and be good to myself and write!


  1. I wanna come for tea!!! It sounds lovely, Melissa.

    Yay ring! Yay hubby!! Emeralds are one of my favorite stones.

    Got out of that funk and back in the swing. Perhaps I am coaching so that I will, too...

  2. Melissa - OOOOOOHHHH - wish I could come to your tea party. It sounds fabulous. Have a good time :-)

    As for your dh, wow, such a total sweetie. Lucky you.

    Re: your funk. I think we all go through it from time to time. I don't think it's a total coincidence that it's happened around holiday time - we all feel overwhelmed during this period. So much to do. Maybe try doing research or character work, rather than focussing just on the actual writing.

    AND, finally - glad you enjoyed the pics :-) And yes, it IS gorgeous up there. I miss it already.

  3. The ring sounds gorgeous!


I love to hear from you!
