We had a lovely day yesterday in Pennsylvania. Really, any day when it isn’t raining or snowing, and the little round disc in the sky decides to peek its head out is a good day for us. We don’t get a lot of those, and coming off a cold winter, it feels like we never see the sun.
It was so nice yesterday, I walked to my polling place to vote in Pennsylvania’s primary pushing and brought my daughter with me. We had a lovely walk looking at all the spring flowers, cardinals, and other sights as I pushed her in the stroller. I even let her push the big red button to confirm my voting choices when we got there. I tried to get her to say “I’m voting for Obama”, but she was too shy 🙂 .
Obama didn’t win Pennsylvania, losing by 9%, but it’s still near impossible for Hillary to pick up more delegates than Obama. The way these things work, the winner of the state doesn’t get all the available delegates if they win the state. They get a share. So, after “winning big” in Pennsylvania, Hillary only picked up 10 more delegates than Obama. Even better, Obama didn’t win many counties in Pennsylvania, but did win my county by a pretty big margin.
Enough about politics. Have you seen the cover for the upcoming Weezer album? I’m a huge Weezer fan, and I have to say this is awesome. Here it is:
On the writing front, I’m beginning work on Chapter 4 of the novel. I had my writing group the other day and am energized with all the feedback given to me by my group. They are excited to see where the story is going, which makes me excited. Also, one of the members has young boys who are also reading along, and they are into it as well. It’s nice to know my target audience is enjoying my writing.
