After the Rain Random 5 Friday

20 Sep

1.  We actually had a real thunderstorm pass through yesterday afternoon.  It’s  been a long time since we’ve had the wind and rain and thunder and lightening.  Then, after the storm passed and the sun came out, it was very beautiful.

2.  Many of the fields around here are dying down.  For some reason, my soybean plants are looking good yet.  I’m hoping this rain and the not too short days yet will still let me have a decent harvest.  I am not a good gambler, and that’s all that farming is.

3.  If you haven’t checked it out, you can see my new novel and sign up to win a copy at Goodreads.  The widget is funky, but it will get you to the giveaway.  I’ve also added a button to make it easier to find me on Goodreads.  I’d love to meet up with you there.

4.  It’s really exciting to have my novel, The Elements, published, but it’s really scary too.  I’m now spending a lot of time trying to find people to read and review it.  It was fun to write, tedious to edit and a lot of work to market.

5.  I can’t believe we’re really almost at fall.  I’ve picked some of my pumpkins to take to the farmer’s market tonight.  We’re supposed to be down in the forties tonight.  That’s quite the change from out 90 degree temps on Wednesday.  This up and down weather is just crazy!
