Why you ask? Most of you who have figured out why already from past posts… you got it… little bro is coming home. This time for two days, he wants to make sure the yard is ready for winter. Mowing grass for the last time, gathering leaves and stuff that lay around collecting the white rain that falls… you know what I am talking about. I know, I know… but I am not quite ready to use that four lettered word yet. I wouldn’t complain if we had at least another two months of this type of weather before things started cooling down more.
Snoop knows what is coming. He is already huddled under the feather blanket when he isn’t he is nagging me about changing the weather outside so he can go out. He can see that it is still dry, but that North wind is for the birds (it blows into his ears and makes them almost flap)… even the birds are beginning to fly South. Deserted again. As long as these pesky crows go I will be happy… loud mouth critters. Speaking of loud mouth birds, the Canada geese are beginning to gather, not so much yet, but I know what is coming. They gather in the river close by and never give a sleeping human a moment to sleep. As soon as the water freezes over they will be gone, but none of that has happened yet. When it does I wonder if that will mean our snow owl will come back. That would be nice… he is pretty… maybe he will bring Tamarak with him or her.
You may or may not have noticed that my November release slipped out early. That wasn’t planned, and no, it does not mean I will fit in another next year because there is more room. Maybe I shouldn’t say anything, but it was a question that was asked. Embracing the Light has the wrong date on it too, but on the other side of the release date. Dec. 15 instead of Dec 1… will have to find a way to release that one early so it gets out in time. It is sooo funny… had a great time writing that one. I guess I should do a lot of things. The world doesn’t revolve around a pen and paper, so until next week. Take care… from this side of the world that does revolve around a pen and paper.
