Perseverance

So it has been months since I last posted here but life just happened all at once. There are so many things I want to do in this life and wonder if I will have time to do all of it. 

I so wanted to really get going on my next book but it has been delayed and will probably take me a while to complete but sometimes the best things are worth waiting for. I am working a full time job now and really must put my all into it. 

Was it all just a dream I am wondering now. We will see.

Time-Where has it gone?

So it’s been quite sone time since I’ve posted to this blog-I have recently wondered why I started it with 3 other jobs ?

A few updates about my children’s book-I have recently gotten the book into a Therapy dog website and am hoping for more exposure – it has gotten several wonderful reviews-I am very happy children and Toy Fox Terrier owners are enjoying it out there.

Hoping to get started on more art work for the next book soon now that the holidays are over-fingers crossed.

For now getting ready for some much need sleep.

Envy

Let’s talk about envy. This has happened to all of us. We have either been envious of others for what they do or had others been envious over what we do. Can’t we all just play nice. This is about a children’s book. It does not define the rest of our lives.

Expectations

Do you ever feel like there is just no satisfying other people? I don’t know about the rest of you but this happens quite often to me. Sometimes the most satisfied is my dogs. Remember this – only pets really offer unconditional love. The only expectations they have is their dinner!

Assumptions

Why do most people jump to conclusions especially when they don’t know all the facts? This is one thing that most irritates me. If you want to say something in reference to what someone else is doing be sure to have all the same information as the other person does.

Saturday Morning…

So its Saturday morning-lots to do and so hard to concentrate with Lizzi on my chest and this little man  in my face- just want to play, play, play!  I have been busy, busy, busy on my marketing quest with The Adventures of Lizzi: Lizzi learns how to Fly-sending submissions out to several more possible carriers this morning.  I will never stop on a dream 4 years in the making.

A short story..

It was 3am and I woke up in a fright. It was quiet in the house-could not even hear a mouse-the moon was bright and appeared to be daylight-I woke up quickly and looked at the clock and heard it going tick tock tick tock- the dogs woke up too and noticed something new – a bright angel just hovering in the room and said do not worry we always watch over you-we went back to sleep and woke up anew.

Lizzie Learns to Fly

Just received this wonder review from Little Reader Book Reviews! Just a feel good day!

Little Reader Book Reviews & More

Recently sent to me by a lovely author, The Adventures of Lizzi A Toy Fox Terrier was wonderful:

Lizzi wants to fly, but no one can teach her. No one knows how! Not bear with his strong muscles, not frog with his jumping abilities, not rabbit who hops from place to place, not raccoon, nor chipmunk. Who can teach her to fly?

Written by Vickie Sizemore, Lizzi Learns to Fly is a wonderful book for younger readers. Kids will enjoy the fun nature of all these animals, especially Lizzi herself! I may be thirteen, but I enjoy children’s picture books and I certainly enjoyed the colorful illustrations and simple message of this wonderful book.
