June Already?!

The month of June always makes me nervous; makes me want to take stock of what I had done with the year so far and makes me want to make lists of what else I want to accomplish before the whole 12 months are up. I guess it's very similar to what most people get to doing New Year's time in January. Except I do it while licking on ice cream cones instead of all bundled up in sweaters. Which makes it better, I think. As ice cream makes everything better. And before I end up blabbing nonsense some more, please do allow me to indulge myself.

The highlights so far:

This, of course! A little baby girl we are in the process of creating in our private workshop.

And this, too, the long-awaited, long-promised book based on my old blog about adjusting to a new culture. The e-mail invitation still needs to be corrected, as the reading at the Philippine embassy in Paris is happening late July instead, but this is roughly it. (Then the publisher will have a launch in Manila -- without me, though. Sob!)

And La Pomme, on Etsy and off, is doing quite well. (I took new photos of my Feel-Good Apples, as I thought the old ones, featuring just one apple, were looking very forlorn.)

All things considered, a first half of the year well-spent. Now to dream up what the next six months will bring... Another scoop of ice cream, please!

Oh, Apol, I am so very, very excited for you!!! :-D And a little girl -- I just know she'll be beautiful and adorable. I was hoping you'd have a girl, because I was imagining all the cute little things you'll make for her. Not that you wouldn't have made cute little things for a baby boy, but girls are much more fun to dress up. :-)

And as for the book: BIG, BIG CLAPS!!! I can't tell you how impressed I am, and how proud I am of you! Please do let us know when the Manila launch is, as I most definitely want a copy. It's just too bad you can't fly home for it.
