Celebrate the Small Things: 6/21


 Happy happy June! 
I have stuuuuffff to celebrate!


1) A friend brought me suede sandals from Switzerland for my birthday (unavailable in Egypt), and they're like walking on clouds!  Ahhhh....
2) A small but annoying snafu of governmental red-tape worked itself out after 2 months.
3) A big snafu of 2-year-old red-tape has finally been fixed and some money is heading my way!
4) I started working on an outline for a new WIP yesterday, and it doesn't suck!
5) I'm still happy about my book contract and my agent!


All is right with the world!





(Ya better take a picture 'cause 
this doesn't happen to me often.)

Oh, so many awesome things to celebrate! Yay you! Hope this feeling lasts a while for you. :D (Especially when it comes to not thinking your WIP outline sucks--it is soooo rare to have that mindset about our own work!)

I think half of my country is moving to Egyptian summer resorts now that summer has officially started today :) Even those scandals from previous years won't stop them to go there :)

Cathrina Constantine said...

YAY! You sound so upbeat, you make me happy just by reading your post!

Shah Wharton said...

Wow - love the sound of those sandals, still really chuffed for you re the contract (and wee bit jealous, in a good way), and a new (non-sucky) WIP outline! Fabulous!

Go you.

Suede sandals will be extra soft. I too had a pair. Mine wore out pretty quickly :(

Suede sandals? Sounds simply sensational... probably super-comfy!

Those sandals sound nice! Hearing about them reminds me of my mom- when she was prego w/my baby bro, in the end all she could fit her feet into were a pair of Birkenstocks, which being super comfy, wasn't all that bad. =)

Hey Lexa,

I'm ever so sorry that it has taken me this long for you to get one of my highly collectable, much loved comments. I've been so busy signing autographs for all my starstruck fans. Delusional moment over....

You have lots to be happy about and I know you will keep that focus. Oh, before I go...Argghhhh!!!...blog hops! Blog fests and blog parties and alphabet challenges! Help!! Okay, apologies for that. I feel better now. LOL
