One paragraph from the page you are currently on:  Angela nodded and headed for the kitchen.  While she gone, Jake looked around the restaurant again.  Shawn was chewing while typing.  Not only was the man not afraid of snakes, but he could type and eat at the same time without spilling his ketchup.  At a booth just opposite from Shawn, Jake could now see, was Celia.  She had a textbook open and was reading.  Like Shawn, she could multi-task.  She was eating ketchup-less French fries, studying, and nodding her head in time to whatever music her earbuds supplied.

Ugh, I researched this book so long ago that I can’t remember anything that stands out. I did recently see some cool old house plans a friend posted on her blog, so I might try to incorporate that.

  1. Sounds wonderful, all of you. I am editing a few short stories I've had wallowing in my computer. I submitted a proposal, but won't start that until I get the go-ahead. Today was a lovely day, and I had hired some teens from our church to do yard work, so I got some editing done in between checking out their awesome work.
