The 9th Loki novella went off to my first reader today. One step closer with that. Also, the short story and the new art code for May are up on my Patreon for supporters at those tiers. Woo hoo. Temmy has been a terrible climber the last week. I've gone to get her down off … Continue reading Updates
The ground for my garden is almost ready. I spend more time out there today, ran into some big worms, and dug up a lot of weeds. I think I'm finally getting to the heart of the morning glory that someone planted like forty-fifty years ago or so. Yes, it made for a pretty fence … Continue reading Garden work continues
I had lunch out with a friend today. Good meal. Wonderful conversation. Dang, I've missed her. Apparently after I left, Temmy sat in the window for quite a while and meowed. Poor kitty. I guess she missed me. At least until she went and took a nap. I watched her play with a couple of … Continue reading My spoiled cat
Whenever I give Temmy a jangle ball these days, the first thing she does is pick it up, look around to see if anyone's going to get into her way, and then runs for the bathroom. She drops the jangle ball into the bathtub and jumps in to bat it all around. She absolutely loves … Continue reading Temmy’s toys
Yes, I did jinx myself with my post last night. I didn't sleep, but it wasn't because of the coffee. It was the wind. As the evening progressed, the wind really did pick up. We'd had high wind advisories, but I hadn't been worried because I knew I'd be in a hotel. However, around the … Continue reading What an adventure
Temmy wanted to cuddle early this morning -- about 4:30, which was fine, I suppose. But then she stretched and put her paw in my face. I don't like paws to the face and I haven't been able to break her of this habit yet. She has one claw that is really long and sharp … Continue reading Who needs sleep?
So it was back to the office today. Temmy was a little more curious today. I had to put up a barrier because she was obnoxious and I needed a moment to work without her trying to climb on everything. She was extremely smug when she found her way around that anyway. But, I did … Continue reading Amaryllis and speed bumps
I dusted and moved back into my office today. Even though I call it my "office," it's really the room where I do my writing. I don't call my writing "work" if I can help it. Writing and painting are fun creative acts that I enjoy, not work. Publishing, getting the creativity out to the … Continue reading The office is open for play!
I went to bed early again last night, but this time I set my alarms. With the time change, I knew that it would be really bad if I didn't. Temmy still woke me up several minutes before the alarms went off (of course). When I finally looked at my clock to see what time … Continue reading A Loki Adventure #9 is done
Every time I think I get close to being able to open up my office after the coldest parts of winter, along marches in some more days of temperatures down in the 10's-20's. I remind myself that we are two weeks away from spring. My tulips are showing their silly little heads -- I wish … Continue reading Spring, where are you?
