I hope you’re all having a wonderful week so far!
Here on Blueberry Hill it has been the kind of week that motivates me to check in with my favorite laugh-out-loud videos for a little pick-me-up. Really, doesn’t laughing just make everything seem better?! 🙂
In case any of you need a laugh, I’d like to share this week’s favorite:
Please please please feel free to share your favorite laugh-out-loud video in the comment section! We can all use a laugh 🙂
I think that video has set us up perfectly for a Something Chocolate that prepares itself in the freezer whilst we lie on the couch, catch up on missed episodes of The Voice and eat bonbons! Check out this delicious no-churn Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream!
All the deliciousness and none of the energy expenditure of churned ice cream – the best of both worlds!
Now then, onto today’s pitch which comes to us from Amanda who says, “I am a wife, mom of 4, teacher, writer, aspiring children’s book author, runner, and triplet. Writing is my creative outlet and it makes me happy.”
Find her on the web at:
Here is her pitch:
Working Title: Sylvia Swan & Cabot
Age/Genre: Picture Book (ages 4-10)
The Pitch: When Sylvia Swan’s family is too busy to help her build a blanket fort…again, she takes matters into her own hands. She channels her frustrations into brainstorming, sketching, measuring, drafting and creating the perfect invention—C.A.Bot:Customized Assisting Robot. Will Cabot be the solution she has been waiting for? Will her favorite pastime become a reality? Sylvia Swan soon finds out that Cabot can help her build more than just a fort.
