Victoria Mixon, Editor and Author will be working with me on editing my book starting in August. I am thrilled. This is a photo of her. Hopefully she will help me get my book ready to be published. Not looking to be on Oprah or GMA just want to find my book in every major B&N store chain in America. I want to make a scrapbook with me pointing at my book every time I find it on a bookshelf. That's all, to be published, health and happiness for my family and friends, and oh yeah, world peace. Hee Hee.

Today the guys began the stone work. It's remarkable to see how they work so quickly and diligently and perfectly. I took some photos of the stone work, although it is not finished you can already see how beautiful the end product will be. I had John, Dave, his adorable son Michael and their assistant Felipe who is not Amish working today. It has been so long since I felt happy about anything since my dad and Max's passing in March. Watching them work and seeing what they do brings me much joy. We chatted today and Dave told me about their commute and we both laughed to find out that my husband's daily commute is double theirs. Poor Rob. Anyway, More later.
Below is the stone we ordered to Honor Max.

Couldn't stop looking at the barn today with the sun setting upon it. Some new friends came today to begin the preparation for the stone. Dave and his son Michael and their assistant Felipe who is not Amish. I received a call from Steve, who went over a few things left to do this morning. As we were speaking he informed me that all of the workers and he had enjoyed themselves and were very entertained with the portrait I had made of them. "Hmm? What portrait?" I asked.
"The one on your blog!" He said. "My Blog?. . . . . . . My Blog!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
All of my new Amish friends read my blog. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!! All I could think of is OMG what must they think of me now? Not because of my entry about them, but all my photos of me photoshopped with Edward and my entire Twilight Obsession. AHHHHHHHHHHH!
So this goes out to all my new Amish Friends who might be reading this. Please don't judge me because I am obsessed with a fictitious character who is a vampire. I'm really a nice person. Honest.
Oh well, what can I say. By the way many Amish do work on computers. They are very with it.
Below are more photos of my favorite new place. My Barn. As the sun was setting I took a few photos.
