1. Visitor. The week started out really nice actually. A friend of ours from Iowa, came for a lovely, but short visit, last Friday. We provided cheesesteaks, she brought ice cream (no not all the way from Iowa.) We had a fun time!
2. Spring? Seriously – what happened? The heat has been back on all week. I think it’s because my seedlings are now ready to go into the garden. Cold and wet and rainy and yuk. Some areas even had snow. We (thankfully) were not one of them. Um – excuse me spring? Feel free to come back now. Thanks.

3. Good News/Bad News. This was a difficult and stressful week for me. The short of it is that I went in for a biopsy on Wednesday – I received the call today that everything is okay - thank goodness. It’s really not a roller coaster (or procedure) I ever want to repeat. Feeling very grateful today – for everything.
4. The Silver Lining. While in bed recovering on Wednesday, a friend of mine texted me the following photo! I had no idea the store put that up. Way to put a smile on my face!! In case you are wondering, that’s the Barnes and Noble in Jenkintown, PA. I think you should all come!!!
5. Book News. Well in case you haven’t heard the news, the official Nate Rocks the Boat release party/scavenger hunt is on May 1st on my Facebook Author Page – there will be lots of games and prizes - books, sketchpads, key chains, and other Nate Rocks swag– starting at 10:00am EST. But – you don’t have to wait until May 1st to get started! There is a photo contest going on right now!! All you have to do is take a picture of the cover of your copy of Nate Rocks the Boat (either the print or digital version) in a creative way (think summer camp theme) and send it to me. We’ll pick a winner on May 1st. Up for grabs is a signed Nate Rocks tote bag and a $10 Amazon Gift Card. Don't have a copy yet? It's now available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble!
