MY TIME OF NEED

In my darkest hour of sitting by the pool,
you felt my pain and heard my pleas and responded.

Look what someone brought by last night -
Aren't they are cute and fesitive? And the pinwheels that really spin when you walk!

and look what someone else brought by.
Guess what I am having for breakfast?
CUPCAKES!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

I don't want to admit this, but since there are only 3 readers of this blog, it will be our little secret.
Jen suggested I "try" The Cookie Company at Southlands.
Do think the fact that the when I walk into The Cookie Company, the owners stop what they are doing, bag up a frosted sugar cookie and ask me how yesterday went (including details) is an indication that I've tried it?
It's just that they are a small business owned by women and I WANT them to succeed!

Now on to Writer's Workshop with Kat at Mama's Losin It.
She puts out five prompts and you are invited to write to one of them.

I chose #2 - Write Five Incredibly Short Books.
The examples listed to inspire us included:
"The Book of Female Popes"
"The 2008 Book of General Motors Profits"

Here are five books that I wrote over the winter and are on my summer reading list -

"Hip Hop Songs with Family Friendly Lyrics" - this will be a wonderful tool for Family Home Evening.

"Professional Athletes We Should Emulate" - a must have for any teenage boy desiring to "go places" in life.

"My Love Affair with Housework"

"Smart Boys" - Lists of ALL the intelligent things boys do during teenagedom.

And - inspired by a Canadian friend (and my brothers who are brats), "Canada's Contributions to World History."

Happy Reading!

Family home evening will be a hip hop place to be with all your neighbors coming in after hearing the music to join in all the fun. Lol
Over from Mama Kats to say Hi.

Ok, "Professional Athletes we Should Emulate" is what, 1/2 a paragraph long? That one made me laugh out loud! Professional athletes and their scummy-ness is one of my hot-button issues. Just ask my poor husband!

yum for the cupcakes and those look like some awesome cupcakes.

Those book titles are hilarious. Maybe I'll write some of my own.

I LOOOOVE the titles of your books! I'll be the first in line to buy them!

p.s. my mouth was watering over the cupcakes. Guess what I'll be making for dessert.

Good titles, but a bit harsh on the Canadians and the athletes. I'm sure that there must be one entry in each book, I just can't remember what it is. {*grin*}

Good job.
