I’ve signed a new contract with HarperCollins/Avon, which means I’ll be employed for another two years. That’s always nice. The first book has a due date from hell, but after that they’re spaced pretty far apart.

I got my stitches out yesterday and there is a scar – another surprise. It’s not all that noticeable since I wear glasses. I was told to get Scar Away, a silicone scar sheet. I’d never heard of them before. You put it on the scar for a number of hours and follow it up with an application of Vitamin E. Do that for six weeks and it evidently does a good job of minimizing the scar. Who knew?

Oh, and I didn’t get lost! Ten minutes there and ten minutes back. Yay!

Yesterday Stanley refused to eat again in the morning. This morning I’ve done something odd. I woke up at 5:00 and decided not to feed him right away. He always takes a nap first thing in the morning. I decided to wait until mid-morning and see if he will be hungrier then. Right now he’s asleep on my feet, so it’s working as planned.

Stanley is such a flirt. Here’s a picture of him with the nice young man who works at the day care.

Here he’s checking out what looks like a smaller version of himself:

I signed up for DogTV. Nope, never thought I’d ever do something like that. Stanley watches TV, however, and so far he adores DogTV. I put it on for him around 6:00 PM so he can watch, bark, watch, bark, etc.

Did you know how super ginger is? I take a teaspoon of powdered ginger every day in a cup of hot water. I call it ginger tea, but it’s just mixing the spice with water. Ginger has been proven to lower blood sugar and improve A1C levels. Plus, studies of ginger have shown a decrease in inflammatory markers, improvement in liver function tests, and a drop in liver fat. All that from a spice I used to ignore.

Happy Friday and have a lovely weekend!
