The Edits & a dental procedure HAVE begun ;-p


Ohhhh, I am soooooo stoked!!
I received my first round of edits last week and had them back in not to long after! Woot!!

The Last story in The Other Kin Series, is coming May 2014.
I'm glad my edits came to me and I had them back to my editor 
before yesterday. 

Ohh, the drama...two teeth extracted and a bone graph done so I can have the implants.
The dentist asked me on our consult if I'd rather go with a partial, as it's close to the two back teeth and my insurance would pick more up. 
I replied nah, that's ok, I'm to tired and lazy in the morning and night to take them out, clean them and OH...remember where I put them .
My dentist and her assistant laughed and said, 'well at least you're honest.'
My oral surgeon is great ... he loves James Bond and has it going on all TVs in the office when he's working (There's one in every room). 
We were watching Casino Royale before those nifty little 'sleeping agents' worked and twighlighted me right out. 
 CH'A!! 

So, now I'm all set for the next round of edits! *Pulling my editing panties up.* 

My mouth soreness has just about dissipated, but I'm still on a liquid or 'smooth' diet and I took tomorrow off from the day job! HA, I will be well rested!

Have a great Sunday!!!!

Pinterest -- I made it! :-)

I know...I made it right, LOL. Finally

My first project, I built a story board for my release coming in May 2014

Then I made a board for my book covers, Fun Drink Friday drinks and my hobby of Organic Gardening.
So far, so good!


I gotta say, I think Pinterest is pretty cool. I'm a visual person, so being able to set  up a story board with pictures to show what I'm thinking is an interesting concept.
Not sure why it took me so long to hop on the Pinterest train, LOL.

Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!!

Fun Drink Friday - Strawberry Basil Margaritas


makes 1 pitcher, or about 8 servings
1 can (12 ounces) frozen limeade concentrate
10 strawberries (or 12 if you're using smaller ones from the farmer's market or your backyard.)
8 basil leaves
2 to 2 1/2 cups tequila (gold or silver)
Empty the limeade concentrate into a pitcher. Add 2 1/2 cans of water and 1 1/2 (18 ounces, or 2 1/4 cups) cans of tequila (or a bit less, if you don't want your drinks to be quite as strong).
Hull the strawberries, slice lengthwise, and add to the pitcher. Crumple the basil a little in your hands (this will help the basil flavor release into the drink) and add it to the pitcher, too. Place the pitcher, covered, in the fridge overnight, or for at least four hours.
When you remove the pitcher from the fridge, your margaritas will be a lovely pale pink color. Now all you have to do is serve them and wait for the compliments to pour in.

This drink was posted from: Nancy Mitchell loves gardening, throwing parties, and mixing drinks. You can find more of her recipes on her blog, The Backyard Bartender.
I saw this and SPRING yelled at me LOL. It looks so yummy, the site I found this on, had many wonderful drinks. Go check them out.
