Happiness is . . . uh, I don’t know.

Something’s up with the blog.  No idea what, but we’ll be on it.  If something horrible appears on here though, we’ve been hacked.

Wait, it’s happiness Sunday.  Okay, how about it’s gorgeous September weather and . . . I’ll have to think.  Ice cream sandwiches in the freezer?  Happy dogs?  A great new crochet project?

You tell me.  What’s happiness this week?

September is Read a New Book Month.

Or as Argh calls it, any month, any day, any year . . . .

Although the lure of comfort reads is great, the pleasure of finding a great new book is better.   As for me, my plan is to start writing a new book soon.  That’ll be a thrill, let me tell you.

What new book did you read that was wonderful?

Talking Books

Krissie has gone home and I’m talking to the dogs again, but for five days. we talked books, mostly our work-in-progress books.  We’d read drafts of each other’s books so we knew enough about them to talk about them, and we discussed different problematical aspects of each WiP, arguing over some points (she was right on some, I was right on others, bless Google how did we ever work without it?) and taking apart some ideas.  It was tremendously helpful and now we have to get to final rewrites.

Happiness is Green

The Washington Post just did an article on some research that showed people are happier if they go somewhere that’s green, which Ellen Green already knew.  I couldn’t agree more: Whenever I start to freak, I look out at the trees and feel better.  Go sit in a park, Argh People, or your back yard if you have one.  Green is good.  

Also, it September first.  Happy New Year!  Oh, and also if you’re American, Happy Labor Day!

So how were you green with happiness this week?

Today is the last day of August, which means it’s the eve of a new year.  My years always start in September, my favorite month.  The weather is perfect, there’s excitement in the air, and you can hear high school bands practicing in the distance.   Also, that’s my birthday month, so yay me (waving to all you Virgos out there).  

It’s also Trail Mix Day, if you want to be picky, but for me, it’s New Year’s Eve.
