Maia loves to peek in the back door when she escapes the barn yard and runs around the yard mowing for me. She’s just a friendly helper!
On another topic…. A publicist from HarperCollins called me on Friday to go over some of their plans with me. They’re preparing to pitch me and my book to all the morning TV talk shows and cooking shows. I would be doing things like making pepperoni rolls with Rachael Ray or cracker candy with Matt Lauer. Or arranging a cow on the set so I can teach Ellen Degeneres how to milk. And so on. Wild. I so want to teach Ellen to milk a cow…. They are also pitching me to the major women’s magazines, People Magazine, and so on. Makes my head spin a little bit. Hard to imagine. I said, do you seriously think I’m going to get any of this?? And she said yes, she did. We’ll see…. This is beyond my ability to imagine. Please remember that pitching is just pitching and that doesn’t mean any of this is going to actually happen, but they are going to do everything in their power. And what I’m coming around to here is that I need to not have any scheduled events in October so that I can be available at a moment’s notice to get on a plane. For that reason, I decided to cancel the October workshops (and have contacted those attendees) and right now I’m not sure about the Party on the Farm plans. When I figure that out, I will post!
Meanwhile, keep your fingers crossed. I really want to meet Ellen….
