I had another great day at the lake. Well, it was mostly great. I slept in late with K. Licked her ears to wake her up. Got my ball and headed to my boat. Mom put on my life jacket and Dad drove us out into the middle of the lake.
For some strange reason Dad threw my ball out in the water. I jumped off the back of the boat and swam about three miles to get it! When I got back he did it again...I mean for goodness sakes, it's my ball and I wanted it in the boat. Dad kept throwing until I laid down on Mom's towel.
But then, I needed to...you know...I whined a little to get my point across. Dad soooo understood. He pulled up the anchor and drove us towards the bank. He put on the leash so he wouldn't get lost. (He's always worrying about getting lost. Every time we go for a walk he puts the leash on. I think if I wasn't attached to the other end of it, he'd never find his way home!) Anyway, he pulled up to a cliff. He wanted me to...you know on a CLIFF!
Yeah, like that was gonna happen...I was hoping for something a little more like a grassy bank...
It all turned out okay. I didn't have an accident in the boat or anything. Dad fell in the lake though . It was a good thing he was on his leash or he might have drowned. I'm pretty sure next time he'll take me to a grassy bank.
Licks and Back Scratches,
I kept a journal of Macy's first year of life...I haven't done anything with it yet, but I'm thinking mid grade novel. What do you think?
Do you keep a writer's notebook (or 6)? Do you open a new file every time you get a new story idea? Do you write on napkins if that is the only paper available?
P.S. I'm only 804 people away from having a 1,000 followers! Can you believe it? I'm totally stoked and have been thinking of what to do to celebrate when I'm K-800 followers. Well, we've come up with a plan...My daughter (now a high school freshman) and I decided to have a Really Random Prize Give-A-Way...one of EPIC proportion!
