Monday Reruns!

Welcome to June guys!  It’s nice and steamy here in the desert and I’m loving every minute of it.  But that’s because I don’t have to deal with that godawful humidity most of you do.  I’ve planted some bell peppers and tomatoes and they seem to be loving life, so that’s a wonderful thing.  How about you?  What’s going on in your neck of the woods?

That’s all from the west coast at the moment.  All three cats are asleep so it’s relatively quiet for now.  Speak up and let us know how last week went and what you’ve got planned for an awesome week this week.

Weekend Challenge: Dr. Seuss Edition

I totally forgot this was my weekend, so I had to come up with something a bit quickly, and since lately my husband and I have been reading our daughter Dr. Seuss books when we're not reading her Harry Potter, I decided that Dr. Seuss quotes would be a fun way to go.

So I have for you 40 Dr. Seuss quotes — some from his books and others just wise/inspirational things he said.

So give me a number between 1 and 40 (or more than one number, if you'd like multiple inspirations) and I will give you a quote. You'll then have until the end of the day Thursday to post words or art inspired by your quote in whatever way you see fit. In exchange, I'll write you a drabble or make you an icon or just add words to a WIP in your glorious honor.

Hello all. It's Friday again. Another week survived and a weekend to look forward to.
