WOTS Festival was so much fun!

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

On Sunday I spent the whole day in down-town Toronto at a writers, authors, bookseller, publishers festival. It was called WOTS - ( Word on the Street) and it was such fun.

I met so many wonderful people and ones that were full of good advice and encouragement.

I managed to stay away from all the food vendors and I had a lovely day. I took yoghurt, granola bars and some snacks down so did not eat much else down there.
This is me at the WORD GUILD BOOTH......talking to one of the members.


I met a few of the contributors of the "A second cup of Hot apple Cider" book.

The night before going down to the festival I read a story in the book that resonated with me called: " O Canada" by Marguerite Cummings. When I got to the festival and visited their booth, she was there! Marguerite was there! We met and chatted and made friends!

Here is a photo of us together!


After the festival I went over the the St Lawrence Hall on King street for the screening of my dear friend Eleanor Mc Grath's Documentary called : " KANATA; An Irish story"
Congrats to her...for firstly being selected to screen at COMMFfest 2011 and then for winning the "best Documentary" award!

I was on my feet all day so that counts for expending energy!

Last night I did the 2nd workout in week 4 of Couch to 5 km and it was not easy....but a little easier than the first work out was.

I hope the next one will be easier, the schedule for week 5 looks daunting! but I will keep in mind that I have come a long way since starting the program!


Tomorrow is weigh in, I admit I am a little nervous about it, I had lost another pound by Saturday but Sunday and Monday's weigh in were not as good, ( gained it back) so I am not sure where tomorrow's weigh in will leave me.

That is what I get for not being able to have my SALAD A DAY for a few days!


Next week MONDAY I start swim training again! OH MAN! I feel so unprepared! But at least we will all be in the same "boat" or should I say pool!

I MIGHT have a conference to go to on Thursday and Friday...am waiting to hear....pray it comes through....I really want to go.

Making progress on the book....Chapter one goes to the proof readers on MONDAY! Whoo hoo!

ONE STEP AT A TIME!!!! ONE STEP...one foot in front of the other, that is how life is!
