Morning Meanderings… I’m Walking On Sunshine…. and don’t it feel good?


Good Morning!  *pause for more COFFEE* After yesterday morning of “opportunities” I have updates!

My fine for parking in Itaska State Park has been reduced to $5.  YES.  Five dollars.  Apparently that was the original amount that it would have been had I purchased a day pass – had I known that I needed a day pass.

What a relief!

Then I had a meeting yesterday that was scary and exciting at the same time….  it was something I had been praying about for a while now and after yesterday’s meeting I am still scared and excited – but I finally have a yes…. and I am moving forward on my book.  You may not have known there was a book.  Or even the inkling of a book.  I was really nervous (and still am) to share about it in case it wouldn’t be.  Now however it looks like it will be and I still have a lot of work to do, and don’t want to say much more about it at this time other than a tired “SSQQQUUUEEE!!!”


Finally… and this is random… I signed up for Netflix again.  As I am reading all these wonderful books that I heard are also movies (especially some of the older titles), I can not find them at our forever closing video rental stores.  All we have in town are Red Boxes which carry a frightening low selection and they are so hit and miss, unless I have reserved one on-line – it’s not worth browsing.


I guess that’s all I have for news.  I guess that’s enough for today!  😀  I am still a bit shell-shocked with all the news of yesterday.  However.  I can leave you with this.

Feel free to turn up your speakers and dance around the room.

I am.  😛

Have an awesome day!!!

    1. Darlyn, no where on the Bike Rides brochure could I find info about the State Park permit, I think that made the difference. I was uninformed – and it was an honest mistake. 🙂

      Next year though I will pay for my one day pass 😀

  1. I agree with everybody else… What Book??? I’m sooo excited for you, can you at least drop us a hint, maybe a genre perhaps LOL???

    Glad your fine was reduced. I’m considering hiking a portion of the Appalachian Trail in the spring and I’m trying to check in to permits and the like, a place to leave my vehicle, long term…. that sort of thing! LOL… I don’t want any fines!

    1. Its funny you mention genre Deb. I have been thinking about if I ever did reach that writer dream what genre would I write? I think eventually (hope) that I would be a prolific writer as I am a prolific reader.

      However – this particular one will be a non fiction.

      I do hope someday to write some fiction as well…. 🙂

    1. Thanks Kathleen, I feel emotionally exhausted today – but in a good way. I think I just cant believe it is starting to come together. I still have a long way to go…. but think I am up to the challenge. 😀

    Oh my GOSHHHHHHHHH!!! 🙂 Congratulations Sheila. I am so happy for you. I only have one question…….When in the world have you had time to write a book????????????? You are amazing! Good job on getting the fine reduced. 🙂

  3. You are so funny and so full of surprises…I am now left wondering…about your book topics…self help?
    coffee varieties? biking? book sales?

    This is a delightful mystery!!!

    1. Patty…. I cant stand self help books. LOL

      It is not about me…. or maybe in a round about way it is… but it’s really about someone I know. It’s her story, seen through my eyes. Does that make sense?

    I am so excited for your endeavor! Great news.

    And I think Netflix should offer cheap packages for the winter for folks like us who live in these cold climates! They’d make a bundle, at least part of the year!

    1. Thanks Julie! I agree – the Netflix package I took was the one at a time for $8.96 I think. It didn’t pay to do more – half the time the dvd will get here and it will sit for a week before I get to it.

    Well, aren’t you being mysterious : ) Good luck with said unnamed, uncategorized, not finished book. We’ll all be waiting.

    I’m sure it is a big relief to have only the parking fee to pay.

    I haven’t started looking for the old movies yet. I may have to sign up for Nexflik after all.

    Enjoy your day.

    1. LOL Pat…. I just don’t want to jinx it. That sounds so funny to say but I have waited so long for this I just don’t want to say too much.

      Oh my gosh you are right Pat… I am cryptic! 🙄
