If you do what you have always done, you will get what you have always had.

thanks for the help!

I started a post about half an hour ago about how I'm just now thinking about stuff for the signing this weekend that I should have thought of earlier but didn't. I hit the major details--ordering books, packing clean clothing. I didn't think about little things, like business cards. In the middle of my lament, I remembered seeing a package of printable cards that I bought sometime in the last four years.* That's half the battle, you realize: Not just to have what you need, but also to know where it is. That's so hard sometimes. Anyway, a quick browse through the business card templates in Word and half an hour later, I have a stash of business cards. I even saved the template so I can print more!

I'm starting to feel like a real business woman!

*Thank goodness I had them on hand, too. It's early enough I could have run out to get them, but it's dark and rainy and yucky outside. (Yes, okay, it's a dark and stormy night!)

For anyone in the thumb of Michigan, my book signing will be Saturday, 12-3, at The Book Shelf on Nepessing St. in Lapeer. If you're not busy, come on out and say hey!

Fiddly bits

My office window.

The curtains are new. The stained glass I've had for a while. The top one I got from my mom; it was in the cedar chest she gave me. It took me a while to figure out where and how to hang it.

The bottom one was a gift from my friend, Jean, when she stopped through here in her travels last spring.
