I feel like I fell off the horse and it's galloping as fast as it can while I sit on the ground wondering what happened. Part of it is my own fault. I let Prancer sleep inside last night and Coville wasn't happy about it since they were both trying to share the bed with … Continue reading The horse is running away
Prancer in the house
Getting up and writing in the morning always sounds like a good idea until it's actually morning. Yeah, so that's me admitting that I didn't get around to writing. I did get up and I did work on audio editing for a bit, but I just wasn't in the mindset to write, especially with what … Continue reading Prancer in the house
Adopting another cat
Shh, don't tell the others. Although, I doubt it will come as a shock to the other pets, really. Let's just say that this black and white cat (pictured above) was born in the neighborhood about this time two years ago. (wow, time flies, but I figure that she's just a couple months older than … Continue reading Adopting another cat
Sleep energy rising
Snoring behind me. Rhythmic gasps of contentment. Suck the air, a reverse whistle. Asleep beside me. A soft face. Silent anxiety, ready to move. Asleep in another room. Two nestled together. A boy and his dog. Asleep a ways off. Curled in contentment. A dark shadow, hiding in the night. Awake in the chair. Finishing … Continue reading Sleep energy rising
On the move
Before you ask, yes, Coville walked across me this morning. I slept in and he was not pleased with me. But I still got audio editing done and I mastered the next three chapters of Help Wanted, Call Loki. The snow wasn't bad this morning and had melted off by the time I was ready … Continue reading On the move
Of cats and plans
I did about half an hour of audio work this morning. Woo hoo. That's how a day is supposed to start. I got some drawing done. I got some writing done. I even tried to get in a nap, but every time I started to fall asleep, Temmy woke me up. She'd been sleeping so … Continue reading Of cats and plans
Cats and stress — who asked for that?
After I finished my short, stressed blog yesterday, I stepped outside with Merlin and it was snowing. The snow was so wet that it sounded like rain. The pitter-pats of it hitting the leaves, lawn, and plants was amazing. Then, went I went back inside, the pets convinced me it was time for bed. I … Continue reading Cats and stress — who asked for that?
Sorry, it’s filler
Sorry but tonight is a filler blog. I haven't slept well in two nights and I've had a hard time concentrating today. I did manage to write almost a 1,000 words today, but now I'm done. I just don't have the ability to write anything else or (more importantly) come up with something to write … Continue reading Sorry, it’s filler
Above is a picture of Merlin when he was a puppy and we'd just brought him home. It had been a long ride and several days of strange places. Now, he was at another strange place. That was over 11 years ago. Merlin and I had a long night last night. He's definitely not feeling … Continue reading Pet siblings
No, this isn't some high-achiever's "you've got to do this in the morning if you want to succeed" post. I find most of those completely unrealistic for my life anyway. I've come to see that it takes me a good half an hour to reach wakefulness, and that my circadian rhythms are strong these days. … Continue reading Morning routine
