Though I am thankful for many things today I thought I would pick just a few of the practical ones.
I’m thankful for my air conditioning. I’m a total hot weather wimp (opposite from when I was a kid) and need to keep the house at a cool temp for me to even be able to function.
I am thankful for mosquito fish who have gone to work on all the bugs in the pot ponds.
I am thankful that my husband, who works as a contractor, is still gainfully employed in this time of great financial unease.
I am thankful that I am able to be home writing, after my own layoff, supplementing my oft-sparse writing income with speaking and teaching and my work with Children’s Literature Network. I don’t think I ever formally announced this but I am now working part time for Children’s Literature Network and Winding Oak as a web editor. I love that it is connected to children’s literature and that it allows me to keep up with some web work which was the best part of my old day job.
I am thankful tolaurasalas for the intro to the job at Children’s Literature Network and Winding Oak.
Yay for the new web editor! Congratulations 🙂 That’s great!
Yay for A/C! And for having work. 🙂
Congratulations on both gigs! What a great match for your gifts.
What a lot of goodness.
Stay cool and happy…
I am a hot weather wimp, too.
I LOVE those folks at Winding Oak. They do my web site. They are a dream to work with. So cool that you’ll be part of the team! What are you going to be doing?
I love them too! I’m going to have them redo my site this summer.
Right now I’m doing mostly CLN stuff. I have all the birthdays plus the member news and I just got assigned the Radar stuff.
