Yesterday was a good day

I have to say I liked yesterday. I might have to mark June 22, 2009 down in my list of good days, like my wedding anniversary, the birth of my children and my birthday. I got not one, but two acceptances yesterday. This made me feel pretty good, considering I hadn't heard from an editor, good or bad, since May 9. One was for my story Undertow, which is actually a sequel of sorts to the story I submitted to the Dead Bait anthology (and subsequently rejected) and the other was actually a reprint of a story that I enjoyed writing immensely. Solitaire and other Games Children Play was accepted into a witch anthology. It was odd because I had never really thought of reprints. It is nice when a story does double duty.

To top it all off I managed to get one thing done on my list from yesterday. The yard has been mowed (now I need to take the weedeater to it).

Because we are in a heat advisory today, with temperatures nearing 100 degrees and a feels like temp of 105-110, I am staying inside today. It will be a good day to work on my edits, and maybe read a book. Maybe I could read the Necrotic Tissue that I received in the mail yesterday. Whatever I do I am not going to get to the weedeater today.

Time to get some work done. Have a good day.
