I sent the ebook off to the editors this morning. Early review, not in so many words: “Are you crazy?” It may still need a little work.
My neighbor D has been after me to go with him to the wonderful, magical town about 35 miles away to buy a new woodstove and pipe. I’ve been holding off because I needed $350 and I didn’t have it.
This morning I got an email from the person who takes care of my mail drop: The money’s deposited and confirmed available. That’s $264.
So: $264 in the bank plus $62 in hand, makes $326. I had a little more than that in my wallet earlier, but had to buy gasoline. So now I needed $24 to put me officially over the top.
I dragged out the box where I throw my spare change. Spent an hour or so rolling up pennies, nickels, and dimes. The end of that?
Which gives me a stove budget, out of a projected $350, of exactly $350. Which puts me over the top.
I’m trying to schedule the trip now.
