Flew up to Little Rock for the day for a fun book signing at Shoppes on Woodlawn. It was a beautiful day! One of my favorite friends met me at the plane and as it is with favorite friends... too much to say, too little time.

When my first book came out in 2004, the first thing someone said to me was,"When does the second book come out?" Well...it's finally here!! The title is "Be Kind Be Sweet Be Nice to Everyone You Meet". My middle daughter Mary Moore and I created it this summer. We had talked about how we were not hearing "please" and "thank you" from children we were coming in contact with and decided to do something about that. So we made a manners book along with counting. One is to count the kind words. So for instance one kind word is "please". Two kind words are "thank you" and so on up to twelve kind words. Then each page has a rhyme, a thought and a scripture to back up the kindness. Here is a sample page. It is 8 kind words. The page reads "When you make a little mess at your home or as a guest, clean up after yourself, that will be the best."

I can't believe I haven't written anything since May... Well I guess I have been busy. Anyway one of the most exciting things happened since then!! My backpack picnic basket was featured in Country Living magazine in the November 2008 issue (p.88) And because of that I have been able to meet so many kind people from across the country and Canada! I have gathered that there are other picnic lovers out there or at least people who like picnic baskets!!
