Celebrate the Small Things: Reconnected!


The above artwork represents my Happy Camper Mood this week!

This week, I'm celebrating:
1) My net is reconnected and working FAST! Yippie!
2) Summer has well and truly ended and lovely cool temperatures have arrived. You'll be happy to know I'm no longer a puddle of bad-tempered sweat.
3) Hubby's away and the cat will play (no doing chores, no cooking, and no watching TV programs only he likes).
4) I'm making progress with my novelette revisions.  It's gone up from stinky pile of poo to smelly gym socks, and I hope to hit the level of only moderately pungent cheese soon.
5) My cover reveal will be next Friday Oct 25th! I have wonderful people to help, and I'm SO excited! 
6) My reveal will be a game, sort of a puzzle challenge, and I hope people will enjoy it.

I love fall -- it's my favorite season. What's your favorite season?

I'm actually kind of anticipating Summer (I'm in AUS) all the cold weather is just horrid.

Great post! <33 Just gotta love those little things

I'm happy it's cooler as well! I'm just as grumpy when it's hot.
What programs does he watch that you don't enjoy?
All set for your cover reveal next week!

Sounds like you are having an amazing time right now! I especially love #3. My hubby is working all weekend which means I don't have to pretend I'm always cooking, cleaning or doing something. lol. And I have run of the house. Oh yeah.
I also love cooler sweatshirt and jeans weather. My favorite!!
Yay! Reveal next week! Can't wait for the puzzle games to start!!

My computer had been down and is in the process of being fixed, so I feel your pain. Glad to see that you are back on the Internet.

Totally am with you on #3, as are many (most) women. A week without sports, sports, sports and skipping some boring housework would be a welcome respite.

Hmm, a puzzle. I will be looking forward to that.

Here's hoping your novellete reaches smelly armpit status soon!!

And you know I love fall. I woke up to about an inch of snow on the ground. Yeah, it's cooler here too. Brrr.

mshatch said...

Glad your internet is working properly once again and glad you're moving away from stinky poo toward smelly cheese :)

Can't wait for the cover reveal!!!

Stephen Hayes said...

It's very pretty here in Oregon right now. Moderate days and cool nights, crisp air and wonderful Fall colors. Take care.

Shah Wharton said...

You have an awesome way with words, so I think smelly cheese won't linger long. :) X

Your cover reveal sounds exciting!
Fall (Autumn) is my favourite season - I get the urge to go out walking more often,
knowing that I'm not going to get sun-burnt!

Have a lovely weekend : )

Jessica Lawson said...

I love Fall too~ to bad it's SNOWING where I am right now. Just got back inside from playing with the girls. Ah, Colorado, you crazy mixed-up state. I love your number 4! Looking forward to the cover reveal!

M. J. Joachim said...

Definitely agree - Welcome Fall and all these fabulous temps! Sounds like your cover reveal will be lots of fun.

Carol Kilgore said...

Yay for fast internet connections and a little bit of Me Time!
Can't wait to see your cover!

Kelly Hashway said...

Number 4 made me laugh so hard!

Can't wait to see your cover! Yay!

Kate Larkindale said...

I like fall too, and spring. Summer and winter are too extreme... I bet your story isn't even stinky cheese. You're way too hard on yourself.

Julie Flanders said...

Fall is my favorite too. Love it. So glad your Internet is working again!

I can't wait for your cover reveal, yay!

S.K. Anthony said...

I hope to meet the smelly gym socks level soon too, then pungent cheese here I come! lol
The reveal is around the corner, how exciting :)

So looking forward to your cover reveal, Lexia. And it's great when the computer is in motion.

Cathrina Constantine said...

Sorry, I meant Lexa. My fingers are faster than my brain.

Lots to celebrate for you this week, Lexa! Best wishes with your book. Happy weekend.

What a great week! I love the fall too. It's gorgeous this year since the leaves aren't just turning brown from the drought. Have a wonderful weekend. :)

Claudia H. Blanton said...

Ah, yes Fall the best season of them all! Hurray for fast internet - have a great weekend

Cathy Keaton said...

Looking forward to your cover reveal! :D

DMS said...

The art is so fun! Can/t wait to see the cover reveal! I like all the seasons for different reasons. Fall is just so beautiful! I like winter least (I like one or two snow falls, but then I am usually ready for warmer temps). :)

I love stinky cheese.

Joylene Nowell Butler said...

I love fall, except right afterwards winter arrives. Not so good. Plus, DST, wish they'd stop putting the clocks back. I'm happy for you, Lexa. Your little things seem pretty kewl.

Jackie said...

Woot for your cover reveal! Can't wait to see it!

Sherry Ellis said...

Fall is my favorite season, too. Looking forward to your cover release! It seems like just yesterday you found a publisher!

Beverly Stowe McClure said...

Your little smiley faces look so happy. A nice, cheery way to start a post. Looking forward to seeing your cover. I'm with you on the no cooking. :) Fall is my favorite season too. Cooler temps. Rain showers. Colorful trees as leaves turn red, orange, and yellow. Football, the music of the bands. We have lots of birthdays to celebrate.

Medeia Sharif said...

It sounds like you've had a fantastic week.

I can't wait to see your cover and fall is my favorite season, too.

I'm a fan of fall as well. Hope the reveal went well.

Number 4 made me giggle. I know eventually it will smell like roses (that is if you like the smell of roses)!
