Easter Shock

Currently Reading: Mercy, by Jodi Picoult. Later this week, I'll be popping over to The Wild Rose Press for three e-books by Samantha Gentry and Liana Leverentz.

My oldest son and his friends lost a classmate yesterday. No details have been released as of yet, but our festivities were cut short yesterday afternoon when one of the moms received a phone call that so-and-so was found by the river.

She called to her son to see if anyone knew the teen; turns out all four did, and soon text messages were flying all over town.

There was nothing on last night's news, not this morning's news; we'll probably learn more once our son returns from school. We'll also check the newspaper today. But hearts and prayers go out to the family of the high school senior whose life for whatever reason was cut short yesterday.

Back To Work
I had a mini-brainstorm yesterday, of where to take one of my stories next. But because of having company, I scribbled a few notes to myself and will expand upon it today.

I also have to order bookmarks and update my sneak peak excerpt for the weekend. Pick out something to wear. Finalize travel plans.

Three Cheers for the Boy Scouts:)
Our Parks and Recreation director is loving the local Boy Scouts. Saturday, K and several volunteers did some minor clean-up at a local park, and sanded and painted the slide, merry-go-round, and a set of swings. Next week they are doing the monkey bars and the larger swing set. The P&R provided all the tools; the troop provided the labor! And the director stated that the six soon-to-be Life Scouts would be more than welcome to tackle any projects in the coming year, as he has many more projects around town for future Eagle Projects.

Just learned about the controversy concerning the erotic books...I believe Jae has it on her blog; go check it out here.

It's always so terribly sad to hear of things like this, lives cut short so tragically. My prayers go out to his family and friends.
