Nora is challenging people to match her donation to Habitat for Humanity and also to send books for the survivors of Katrina (thanks for the link Meretta)
On a personal note my daughter starts kindy tomorrow (bless her). She is very excited, but a little scared too. Considering she'd be in Grade 2 had we stayed in Scotland I feel like it is way past time she started full days, but no, it'll be a year of half days to start with while I look after the wee man :)
Talking of the wee man (aptly named considering the lack of progress on the nappy/diaper front) he had his birthday last week and his sister, helped by a good friend of ours, baked a cake. Isn't it fab?
Writing-wise, I have my images, soundtrack and plot sorted out. Seriously, I am now prepared :) Just going to nail down the internal and external conflicts so they are up front and personal in my head, and then I can start writing. I know, I know, I'm being lazy. Is it the changing seasons? because I am whacked--maybe I need to get my butt in gear and set my goals.
Gabriel (Gabe) and Felicity (Flick) are my hero/heroines names...what do you think? Nice and easy for all those contest judges who usually have trouble with me??
