Big Day in a Small Town

I am settling into this countrified small town life. And I am in love with it.

This morning I helped with reading and alphabets at the boys school. So many unique, awesome small humans. Kids are ace, man. They don't sugar coat it. I was doing my best awesome mummy schtick, while going through the alphabet.  I thought I was doing great, then one kid said, "I just wanna go away from you. I don't wanna do this." Totally without malice. He was just being honest. That's cool, little dude. I won't take it personally.
After reading, I wandered up town, did some errands, then dropped in to see my mum at the Maleny Artists Pop Up Gallery. There is a lot of new work in there since last time I visited. Great stuff. Love the attitude of Shireen's sculpture! And my mums fishy plates of course!
 Then I dropped into the coolest bookstore in town, and possibly the world, Rosetta Books and Cafe. This is a book shop that knows how to get it right. I am hoping they will be interested in stocking my Stephen King flowchart… we will see. 

BUT! while I was there I saw that the final Tales From the City novel, The Days of Anna Madrigal had been relaeased!! Holy Hotpants, Micheal Tolliver!!! I cannot wait to be back in the world of San Francisco and Michael and Anna and even Mary Ann. I think know what is going to happen and my heart is already broken, but I want to see it through to the end with Anna. We have been through a lot together.
So, it was just a simple day in my small town… but it was a good one.
