Today was Friday, all day. It was sunny from first thing, so Christy and I walked the boys to school, and I sorted out a few prizes for my stalls for the Bazaar. Our priest, J.C.jnr, was just sitting on the steps in the sun, greeting the school community as it builds for another year. We sat and chatted for a few minutes. He really knows how to help build community. What a treasure.

And I've just been painting. I've turned a pale green wall into a stone-coloured one. You know, the colour Keeley chose for his bedroom ;) It looks better than I thought. I'll do another coat when it's dry. So the whole dining room is looking really fresh. It was fun painting the archway, turning this way and that as I painted over my head.

And I'm going to write all evening, come hell or high water. Well, until Huff is on at quarter to ten *frowns* I think it's tonight, and not Sunday... have to check. It's on Prime so that's kind of obscure.

The children are at the beach, jumping off the wharf with Steve and probably half the school. Finn just got back, he and a friend have been jumping off the other wharf at Weka Bay. They were the only ones there, and Finn's friend was a bit nervous, so Finn said that made him the bravest *g* he's usually the cautious one of his friends. He is nagging me to play Sims so I have to go. Guess I'd better get some dinner ready for everyone. Then... then I'll write... heh. Hopeful. I'm still going over Safe. I named a chapter after one of Nick's books - you think he'll mind? it's not like I'm going to be famous *g* I hope he can see it as an honour - I mean, as in, I respect his writing that much (not that my writing is that great *snort*!)

*shrug* who knows if he'll mind. Life is short though, and I think we ought to dive in and take the opportunities that we can, when we can, if it isn't going to hurt anyone.

It's nice that your priest sat out on the steps and made himself available. That's a great and simple way to be involved.

Exactly.

It is. Just taking time to practise the valuable art of sitting and listening to people - it's so important.

Exactly. Everyone needs someone to listen to them sometimes.

When you get published, your publishers might like you to acknowledge the chapter title somewhere in the notes or dedication at the beginning ... and then he'll feel really honoured.
