There seems to be a plethora of upcoming events on my calendar at the moment. Some are writing related but others are with family. These are only the highlights!
This weekend I will accompany my daughter to a reptile show. She has a table and will be selling several lizards of the leopard and crested kind as well as accessories for the maintenance of same. She has prepared a new enclosure in her reptile room (yes it’s in my house and I’m fine with it). She will be purchasing a chameleon – an animal she has wanted for over a decade. If you are in the area why not drop in and discover fascinating creatures. http://www.edmontonreptiles.com/ Sands Hotel, Fort Road, Edmonton, Alberta. Saturday & Sunday.
With Thanksgiving on 13th October – my family will enjoy a meal together in the new home of my son and his girlfriend. We prepared apple pies for the occasion a couple of weeks ago utilizing the bounty of their own apple tree.
On 25th October I will be attending Words in the Park http://words.sclibrary.ab.ca/ launching my new children’s book, Ockleberries to the Rescue. And will of course use the delightful door I purchase some weeks back. As I have a whole table my spare time for the coming weeks will involve positioning my range of books in the best possible way to attract people to my display.
I will divide the table into four so each book has it’s own unique place with relevant display items and promotional materials beside them. Ockleberries with the door and animal ornaments, Rumble with his prizes for the competition winners of hats and T-shirts and special books marks and glowing orb for The Rython Kingdom as well as writing items for Your Lifetime of Stories (memoir workbook).
How is your calendar looking?
Until one has loved an animal a part of one’s soul remains unawakened. Anatole France
Pets are humanizing. They remind us we have an obligation and responsibility to preserve and nuture, and care for all life. James Cromwell
I thought today’s prompt could be about pets – either some you have always want to own, pets you do own or pets you would never have!
