Life has been interesting around here, lately, as you can tell from the title of this blog. However, before I go in to detail about Bible School, Snakes and Swine Flu, let me talk a bit about my book.
Publish America has made my book, "Wild Heart" available in hardcover now. It's the same price as the softcover, $24.95. We have ordered one, just to see how it looks, and I'm getting excited to see it.
On Saturday, June 13, I'm going to be at the Street Fair in Rand, WV starting at 1:00PM. I'm going to have a table set up with books and my music CDs to sell. Also, and I'm working hard on this, I'm going to have some freebies, if you buy a book or CD. Trust me, the freebies are hand made and worth it. All you gotta do to get one is buy a book or a CD. So, if you are in or near the area, come check me out!
If you like audiobooks, then look out! Mine is being put in to audio right now. I'm so excited, and you will love it! So, keep checking my website
So, on to Vacation Bible School. On Monday night, I took both girls to Bible School, and about lost my mind, what with all the other little ones, plus mine. At first, Faith, my 3-year-old, was quiet, but when she saw the others joining in and answering, she started answering questions and talking, too. I was proud of her! Kierstin, my 18-month-old, spilled juice all over herself, found a little friend to play with and generally, made it difficult for me to pay attention to Faith. So, last night, Tuesday, I left Kierstin home with her daddy, and it was much easier. Faith really came out of her shell last night, too. She was even organizing a play group, telling others who would pretend to be who. Quite honestly, I'm glad no one expects me to take care of that many preschool age kids, cause I couldn't do it. More power to those who can!
Now, about the snakes. A friend of mine had a copperhead in her yard, and her son cut it in half and gave it a pitch that landed the snake on her roof. One of our sister churches in Charleston found a rattle snake in their basement, Sunday morning, and had to cancel services Sunday night to insure they didn't have more than one. And, last, but certainly not least, my mom's boyfriend was cutting our grass last evening, and found a copperhead under some ply wood in my backyard. He killed it, but still... I was horrified! Here, I had thought to take the girls outside to play yesterday and didn't, because Kierstin was so fussy. Thank God for her fussiness that kept us inside! What scares me the most is that I could have stepped on it and not even known until it was too late. Or, what if it bit one of the girls? They are so small, and they would have screamed, but it may have been too late for me to do anything. Oh, y'all, I tell you, I don't even want to go out there alone, anymore, but i'm praying, cause I can't let that fear keep us inside.
So, what about Swine Flu? Well, and this is a prayer request, too, the same church who found the rattle snake in its basement, also had a child in Bible School Monday night, who has Swine Flu. She wasn't having any symptoms, so doctors are saying it isn't likely that anyone will come down with it, but precautions are being taken, and Bible School at that church has been pospoaned. Just to note, it isn't the church where we have been going to Bible School.
Fshew! Is that enough to blog about or what? What with yapping preschoolers, Swine Flu and copperheads, there's never been a better time to pray!
Well, all this blogging has made me hungry, and Kierstin's coming back here, and Faith just got up, so I gotta git! Gonna clean out closets today, probably. Y'all take care and come see me in Rand, if you can. There will be a lot of things for kids, and I might get to sing a song or 2, as well.
