A Day Late and A Dollar Short

I meant to get this posted yesterday. Really, I did. But life happened. So it's getting posted today.
Here's five finally's. (I know that doesn't make sense, but keep reading and you'll get it.)
  1. The sun is finally shining!
  2. My daughter is finally graduated! It has been hectic, but good. And I'm glad I still get her for the summer before she goes off to college.
  3. I'm feeling like summer is finally here.
  4. I'm finally almost finished with my revisions.
  5. Okay, this isn't a finally, but something that I felt should be shared. Read on . . .
A young mother in my community, Rebecca White, recently found out she had breast cancer. Two days later she had a mastectomy. A friend of hers, Cheri Chesley, who happens to be an author, is donating the sales from her books through August 31 to help cover the cost and show her support.
To show your support you can find Cheri's book The Peasant Queen here or here. Her e-books The Wild Queen and Ghost Bride can be found here.

You can also find more information about Rebecca here.

Thanks all and have a superb day!


  1. Congrats to your daughter for graduating and to you for finishing revisions! I feel like the danger of snow is finally gone where we are too~ yay for summer :)

    What a touching story~ I'll be sure to check out The Peasant Queen.

  2. Those are all GREAT finallys, Sheri! And thanks for sharing the story of the woman from your community.

  3. Well that's a really nice thing for Ms. Chesley to do!

  4. I think all of us know someone who's had breast cancer, which is really scary if you think about it.

    Our summer hit a couple weeks ago. Would you like some? 90 degrees and humid!

  5. Wooo, congrats to your daughter!
    That is really great what Cheri Chesley is doing for her friend with breast cancer...

  6. Oh, I always need something new to read. I'll check these out. And congrats to you and your daughter!

  7. Ah, that's a lovely story. Breast cancer is such an evil - seems like so many people we all know have been touched by it. Have a great week:)

  8. Congratulations on your daughter's graduation. I'm so sorry to hear about, Ms. White. My thoughts and prayers are with her. I'll go check out Ms. Chesley's book now.

  9. Congratulations on your daughter's graduation.

    Finding out about having breast cancer and then having a mastectomy two days later - talk about a life-changing time. I wish her the best.

  10. Congratulations on your daughter's graduation! So sorry to hear about your friend. Will check out Rebecca.

  11. Wow, how generous of Cheri. Congrats to your daughter!
