Good Authoring Day to YOU
Reminder, TODAY is AuthorYOU Salons … only for AuthorYOU paid up members. A two-hour mastermind of ideas in the Zoom room. Always a favorite day of the month for many of us. And TODAY is National Clean Up Your Room Day … I get the pull, time to take out more old stuff that needs to exit my office. Monday will thank me.
And … I did put my let my “sunshine toe on the deck” last Saturday afternoon as I started the great winter uncover, get the rugs down, furniture out, my favorite iced tea and a book out. Per the weather birds—it was “supposed” to be clear for at least two weeks … and I’m going to be thinking: no more snow in my neck of the woods. The weather gods were “oh so wrong” … another snowfall came in on Tuesday. So ugh.
I’m looking forward to “author time” this AM … and then later … learning how to tile my deck table… trying something new. How about you?
