House Work and a Blogging Break ~ Weekly Wrap-Up

Happy Friday!

This week, we've had some beauty....

some fun...

and some work on the house.

As you already know, we are CrAzY busy right now with the finishing work of the house.

What you may not know is that I have a huge writing deadline. An editor has requested to read the entire manuscript of a novel I've written, but she has suggested some changes based on my synopsis and opening chapters. My deadline to edit and get the book to her is Monday, June 9. This is a thrilling opportunity! Can you hear my squeals of joy? There is still plenty of opportunity for rejection, but for the moment, I'm savoring the progress and working hard to make the story better.

This means, dear reader, that I need to step back from the blog, but just for a few posts. I plan to be back on Wednesday, June 11. Even as I write that, I miss you already! J

Could you please pray for God's will and His favor in both of these endeavors?

I'll see you soon! If you're on Facebook or Twitter, I'll still be checking in there from time to time.

Prayers for a wonderfully blessed weekend!
