Good News Wednesday:)

Currently Reading:  Began Phantom's Rest by Anny Cook, and am up to Ch 2.  Liking this very much!

First of all, hats off to my friend Jamie Carie, who has been informed she's receiving a Faculty Citation Award for "excelling in her career/field of study"!!  Yay Jamie!!!  WTG woman!  To enter her Kindle contest, either click the link or the picture to the right!  What's the contest?  Design a hat for Lady  Kendra, who stars in her latest book,  Pirate of My Heart:

She gave up everything for a chance at true love . . .
When her doting father dies, Lady Kendra Townsend is given a choice: marry the horrid man of her uncle’s choosing or leave England to risk a new life in America with unknown relatives.
Armed with the faith that God has a plan for her, Kendra boards a cargo ship and soon finds herself swept away by the rugged American sea captain Dorian Colburn. But this adventurous man has been wounded by love before and now guards his independent life.
He wasn’t prepared to give up anything for anyone…
No swashbuckling man needs an English heiress with violet-hued eyes to make him feel again or challenge his faith with probing questions—or so he thinks. It is not until Dorian must save Kendra from the dark forces surrounding her that he decides she may be worth the risk.

Good News #2:

Arbor U has a new logo!  Designed by my good friend Benjamin Martinson, this change was necessary due to my other being under A/H copyright.  I'll have to make a minor change in Balancing Act when Gretchen is talking about the school colors (note to self:  Check 1st chapter of Love On The Rocks), but I love the fact the school name is on the ribbon:)  I should get my new cover either today or sometime this week.  This makes me excited about working on Ch 5 again!  Yesterday I only got as far as page #32, due to the craziness around here (keep reading!).

Bad News:  
Aren't you glad I told you all that good news first?  The Daniels household has been sidetracked with foot injuries.  Daughter's knee locked up and became painful to navigate stairs; the SU stepped on something and his foot swelled up and bruised; this morning my right heel protested the four lap (3.2 miles) walk I've been taking every morning.  
As a result, daughter's right leg is now encased in an imobilizer and is possibly facing orthoscopic surgery to repair cartilage in her knee (we'll find out once we meet with the orthapedic specialist).  The SU's right foot is in a soft 'boot' and ordered to ice it often until the swelling/bruising fades; I wrapped my right foot in an Ace Bandage, plus wore a sock over it, but three steps onto the walking path and pain shot through my heel.  So I guess I'm not to walk until I get some decent walking shoes, which will be after Sept 1st.  My one piece of GOOD news is, I've lost another two pounds:)  So my weight is at least going in the right direction, lol!

What's YOUR midweek update?
