April A to Z: Letters J and K and Celebrate the Small Things

Happy Friday, everyone. To date, I'm having issues yet again to stay connected to the internet. And when I finally get to Blogger, it crashes on me. So I'm writing right this minute from my iPhone.

I'm hoping I can get on the computer to download my clues for Arlee Bird's April A to Z Blog Challenge.

This year I planned to give picture clues as to what the next book would be about for the Lila's Journey series, Killer Stilettos.

The person with the most correct answers will receive either a copy of Secondhand Shoes or one for their Kindle.

But before I give any clues and while I wait for my computer to Refresh, I'll begin with VikLit's Celebrate the Small Things.

1: I'm pushing through the A to Z Blog Challenge, despite my computer, Blogger  being a Blooger, and Google Chrome crashing on me.

2: I've hand written changes to chapters 41, 42, 43, and 44 to Killer Stilettos this week.

3: I'm thankful for my one and only critique partner, Emily McKeon. I found her on CP. Originally, I had found 2. But the other peep fell off the bandwagon after I read through 2 of her manuscripts.

4: I've transplanted my squash, zucchini, and cucumbers. I need to get some more boxes before I plant my kale, tomatoes, and peppers.


Two boxes of goodness coming.

Well, I'm still waiting for my PC to do its thing so I'm searching around my house for the next 2 clues. Which by the way, I'm posting K for today and J for tomorrow.

This is your K clue. And no. The answer is not a knife.
I'm still searching for your J clue.
Okay. What is the name of Lila's true love? Or so she believed in Secondhand Shoes.

This wraps up this weeks blog challenge. I'm hoping to get to as many blogs this weekend. 

Have a happy weekend and Happy Shabbats if you practice!

Hugs and chocolate, all!


  1. I'm glad you have some things to celebrate in spite of the fact that Blogger is giving you so many problems. Hope you have a good weekend ahead. :)

    1. My computer is now on the fritz after I pushed the Refresh button.

  2. Sorry blogger is giving you trouble! That's not cool - especially in the middle of the A-Z challenge. I have no idea about the answer to your question. Your garden looks like it's doing well, though!

    1. Now I have other problems with my computer. So my weekend will have to be used figuring out how to fix it.

  3. I'm having problems with Google Chrome Too or it's Blogger I don't know. I can't Join or Follow any new blogs and it's driving me crazy. Especially with the A to Z Challenge going on. I think I need professional help. No planting here in Buffalo yet....Good Luck with yours...

    1. I shall stop by your blog once my computer figures out what it's doing.

  4. Definitely can relate to your frustration, Shelly. Why does it always happen when you need the computer the most? At least you don't have to worry about your vegetables crashing.
    Aloha to you.

    1. Very frustrating. The veggies are coming along nicely.

  5. I can't wait for the weather to be good enough so that I can work in my garden. Hope you get google back to working. Empty your cookies sometimes helps...Oh and the letter K you did what I did (kinda)....KILLER

  6. I say killer because cutter starts with C - :) and I'll take a stab at J for James - hope your computer and tech stuff sorts itself out soon - Google friend connect is messed up

  7. Killer is correct. :) James is not his name. Sorry.

  8. Lila gets another book? Awesome. Love the title, and the shoe theme.

  9. I'd love to grow vegetables.

    Computer problems are so aggravating.

    I was also thinking killer.

  10. Hurrah for celebrations and critique partners.


I'm dying to know what you think.
