A salute and a tiny boost for a big ego!

Bloggie friends!

To whoever decided to get a perfectly good apple, shove a stick in the middle of said apple and THEN dip the lot in thick milk chocolate instead of toffee – I SALUTE YOU!

:-)

Now bloggie friends! This came just in time to give me a little writerly ego boost!

If you scroll down the list of accepted submissions, you can just about catch “A Haiku by Jennifer Domingo”! Yay!

I’m particularly happy about this because The New Sun Rising publication has been fraught with difficulties but I think the publication itself has been salvaged. The hope is that it will be out as a commemorative anthology in time for the anniversary of Japan’s devastating tsunami. So double yay!

Charlie says: I smell for introoders.


Is it nearly November already!!??!

Beautiful cat. :3

LittleWomen21 said...

Congrats on your haiku for publication! Chocolate apples? That sounds weird!!! But hey, I love just about every other fruit with chocolate: cherries and blueberries being my favorite.

More exotic blends: chocolate and huckleberries! (isn't huckleberry a great name? makes me think of chuckleberries) and chocolate and lingonberries!! From Sweden!! Beats Swedish Fish hands down.

Ah, I think you hit a cord here.

Lola Sharp said...

YAY!!! CONGRATS!!!!!!! *hugs* :D

I love chocolate apples, caramel apples, toffee apples...I am positive I'd love an apple layered in all of the above! I too would kiss the person who invented them. :)

And Charlie is the most gorgeous guard kitty EVAH!

And, I know I have been busy and not stopping in here as often as I'd like, and I know I don't tell you this enough, but:

THANK YOU. Your sunshiny comments around the bloggyverse make me so happy. I swear, NO ONE leaves a happier comment than you. And I'm so very grateful for you. :)

Huggles,
Lola

Kea said...

Oh, I missed this post yesterday, so sorry!

Congratulations on your acceptance! Hurrah and well done!

Those apples look yummy...I had dark chocolate-covered caramels yesterday, they were sprinkled with just a bit of sea salt. Whew. YUM! Never had a chocolate-covered apple, though!

Soggibottom said...

Charlie ol bean the year is moving far too fast towards 31st December... have the choc apples got any fishy stuff in them ?
There are some lucky shellfish that have been saved today... :-) I need to get better at throwing :-)

Congrats too :-) X X X Keep it up :-) x WANT A SIGNED COPY :-) I AM NOT JOKING :-) :-) :-)

I'm so happy for you, Jen! You deserve a little ego boost. Keep us posted on the project. YaY!

Caramel with chocolate is one of the best things. I am a BIG fan of caramel apples. I haven't had one yet this season.

Ann said...

Congratulations Jennifer!!!! I just had a feeling you were in line for a major writerly ego boost. Delighted for you!!!!

The apples are a nice treat to mark the occasion too.

What a lovely haiku, Jennifer! Congratulations on your publication. Those chocolate-covered apples are just icing on the BIG publishing cake ;)

Debbie said...

Congrats! Fab news.

Mia Hayson said...

Yayyyyyy! Congrats! That's super!

Also- those apples are amazing. I keep accidentally deliberately buying them they are delicious. Wooo! I gave one to my brother the other day though and when he realised there was apple beneath the chocolate he looked at me like I'd betrayed him SO BADLY.

Wendy aka Quillfeather said...

Good stuff, sweetpea!

Who needs a guard-dog when Charlie is around? :)

rumpydog said...

Hello! Jen says she used to make chocolate caramel apples and they were hard to make but so worth it!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Apples dipped in chocolate is new to us. Jan had caramel apples when she was a kid but the chocolate sounds good too. But we're not allowed to have any cause it's bad for us. :(

Sorry Jan's photo almost made you fall off your chair. It's the first time she's worn a costume in decades.

storyqueen said...

Those chocolate apples look delicious!
