I hope you all had a great Fourth of July. I celebrated in the best way possible – with family and friends at a BBQ. Although we expected rain the weather turned out okay and the munchkins got some pool time. They’re really enjoying the water and were so much fun to watch.

Then Sunday night I finished the four book reviews that were due today and sent them in. Now it’s time to get back to the novel. I’ve made some plot changes that I think will add more conflict to the story and my goal is to finish the first draft by the end of August. I’ll keep you posted on my progress.

Lexophilia is kind of an unofficial word meaning “the love of words.” For those of you who love words and language here’s an interesting site I came across over the weekend.

Improving communication from the Federal Government to the Public.

Being a hardcore lexophile myself I decided to make this link the beginning of a list on the sidebar called - Lexophilia. Enjoy!

BTW, I was very excited to see the first review for “A Cup of Comfort for Cat Lovers” on Amazon.

The reader gave it 5 stars and wrote “The fifty stories are a fairly quick read and will leave you wishing for fifty more. If you never had a cat as a pet/friend you only need to sit back and wrap yourself around this lovely little book with the big stories of feline tales to warm ones heart and maybe instill a bit of what being a cat lover is all about. And for the cat lovers reading through the book it will only reinforce what we already know about the power of the purr.”
