April 28 – Book Uploaded. Computer NOT Thrown Across the Room

Yea Me! I got frustrated working on the eBook because I didn’t understand something Microsoft Word does. I tried to get things in the proper order with bookmarks instead of links, not realizing that when I built the table of contents, the bookmarks were there. ::Sigh:: eventually figured it out. Both Paperback and eBook version have been uploaded and are awaiting processing from Amazon. This will be the May-June edition of the Devotional Series. I’m calling it the sunrise edition with the idea that the devotionals are meant to be read early in the morning. My plan originally was to have one series. Then, I thought about other ways to frame things and I might have a noon edition and a moonrise edition in years to come. The eBook is matchbooked, meaning if you buy the paperback, the eBook is free.

I finished up the eBook after attending an Eagle Scout Court of Honor ceremony. A fine young man earned his Eagle Scout award. I was so happy for and proud of him. He is always willing to serve. Ronnie Boehnke, I salute you! You have earned a great honor. My wife and I walked downtown tonight, one thing the doc at MDA said she should do. I’m glad that she was feeling well enough to do that. Then, we came back and I did my challenge writing.

April 12 – Limit Reached

Some days, I reach my limit and just have to go to bed. Yesterday was one of those days. I got my devotional written and took some needed me time, walking along the bayfront. There’s something about water that’s calming. I got home in time to make a grocery list and go shopping. I began editing, but needed to stop to cook dinner when my wife let me know she was coming home after a terrible day. (Very busy day, then some issues) Then I tried to catch up on my editing. I need to work on one thing for the May/June edition while I keep on editing the March/April edition for my devotional books. In case you’re new to this blog, I had tech difficulties that kept me from getting the March/April book out on time. All this to say that by the time I finished my editing, I was too tired to even look at the computer without my eyes tearing up from tiredness…so I waited until this morning (April 13) to write the post.

April 2 – I Was Sure I Had Written This Last Night

I woke up this morning and wondered…did I write this post last night? I checked…nope. Getting more forgetful in my old age. Anyway, I finished my devotional (433 words) and editing early in the day. After that I did a lot of walking. That’s my major form of exercise. Then, I had both chess clubs – an elementary school and a middle school. The elementary school feeds into that middle school, which is the school I retired from. After that, I came home long enough to let the dog out and then went with my pastor to help him in ministry. He preaches and feeds people at a homeless shelter the first Monday of every month. He believes he needs to do ministry outside of his church duties and this is one way he does that. I’m privileged to work with him. Then, I got home, cooked dinner, and yes, that means we ate late. Somehow, after dinner, I should have written this and forgot. Oh well.
