Nothing better than a soy chai tea latte from Starbuck's to end a taxing day!

Amy...that much needed extra sleep is always a good thing!

Glued...Very happy for you. It would be cool if you could get on HGTV's House Hunters. cheers 

Ebowers...I've never had "Chai" anything, can you describe the flavor?

Well, Frances, there's a variety of spices in a chai tea including:  cinnamon, ginger, cloves and pepper!  It's actually very good for you as it acts as a natural digestive aid and it gives a soothing effect.  It's a real treat!

Thanks, Frances - I wish I could, too, because I love that show (and don't care if it's faked, lol)!

LOL, we had 18 wheelers from North Carolina come on our street today and knock on doors to sell what furniture they had on their truck. Unbelievable! My 20-something daughter said 'this is better than the ice cream truck!'
lol! 

We told their very polite group of men that we will be in the market for some new furniture before too long, but not today. What's funny is my husband was the one who wanted to go out and look at the furniture (of course he's cheap, so he probably was excited about getting a deal). I've been trying for two years to get him on board with this plan, so to me, it's a miracle! Laughing 

I would LOVE to have Jeff Lewis come design my interiors. He has great taste and is snarky-fun to boot! (He would have to bring Jenni and Zoila, though.) Either him or Candice Olson - I LOVE her work, too!

I love all your emoticons glued!

It's a short story. It's why I tend to read a lot of short story collections. I'm not sure it's out yet though because he just told me about it. It's in a literary magazine called Glimmertrain.

Today I'm happy that National Novel Writing Month is half over! I am participating in the challenge to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days.

It's fun and exhilarating, but exhausting as well! But, today I passed 25K words, and am confident that I will finish. So that's what's making me happy right now!

If you want to follow my progress (and I'm soliciting all the support I can get!) I have a page for the book on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aborrowedlife and I'd love for you to like it there.

I'm also updating my blog about the book: www.stephlj.com

And, of course! I'm on twitter also. https://twitter.com/stephlj_

Sorry to interrupt with shameless self-promotion!! But, I'm really excited about this, and love how the story is progressing.

I even posted an excerpt on the November 2nd blog post, so read it and tell me what you think!!! Thanks guys!

And if anyone here is participating also, please let me know! I'd love to be writing buddies over at nanowrimo.org!!!

I am SO happy I was at my Jiffy Lube getting air put in my tire when my battery decided to just DIE!! They took me to Auto Zone to buy a new one, popped it in, then off I went. There are so many other places it could have died!

Someone was looking out for me!

What made me happy today was seeing a former 4th grade student of mine playing basketball tonight (on tv!!) for Vanderbelt!  He only got in the last four minutes of the game, but it was a joy to see him.  They were playing Butler.  It went into OT and Butler ended up winning the game.

I am happy to hear my son practicing his piano, and sounding wonderful. He's going to play two songs for the seniors at an old age home..."The Rose" and "Holly Jolly Christmas."

Aww, I love reading this thread! I had a nice visual of your son playing piano for smiling residents, Gail (even though I don't know what he looks like, of course)!


We close on our land today, so that's putting a smile on my face, and I'm having a blast looking through house plan books!
