A Blustery Monday

We awoke to a cold, windy morning at Rancho Ramirez and it's about time! It actually feels like autumn. Naturally, the day had to start at our favorite restaurant deep in the heart of the westside: Natalie's or the Pink House, as we like to call it. Later in the morning, I had lunch with my kids at school and now I'm blogging. 

In a very short while I'll have to get ready for tomorrow's Doc Ed presentations at Schulze Elementary School. I've been informed there will be a film crew present to shoot footage of the presentation as part of a documentary on water conservation that will air on PBS. The crew is traveling all over the country filming this documentary and as soon as I get more details regarding this film I will post them here. Tomorrow should be interesting. Whether the footage they get ends up being in the final cut is another story. We'll see.

I've got to squeeze in some more writing time today for the children's play Pammy and I had been working over the weekend. It's good to be working on a children's play again. It's like a breathe of fresh air and long over due. I'm grateful for the Doc Ed shows I've been doing for the past five years. They been a blessing and have provided me with a regular paycheck to take care of my family. I'm eternally grateful for the job. That having been said, there's nothing like entertainment for entertainment's sake. It's just downright fun.

 Texas history comicbook cover color study.

I spoke to Art Avila of Raining Popcorn Media about meeting for lunch this week to go over cover sketches for the children's book we're working on. We want it to be just right because it has to draw your attention to it and away from other books. That's a good reason to fuss over it. The cover should be finalized before the end of the week.

 We'll also discuss finishing up the Texas history comic books we've been working on with the hope of getting them printed and for sale very soon. The book contains three seperate stories set during the early to mid 1800' during Texas' formative years.

I hope your Monday is going well and feels like autumn. Hasta luego.
