The routine is getting to be so set with Snoop that we both have our roles set for the night. I climb onto the bed… after hours of listening to him scream because he wants to have company while he sleeps. (well, maybe not hours) Often he just sits on the desk beside the computer and stares at me. Hint, hint. If that doesn’t work he sits on the keyboard or tries to climb onto my arms.

I finished off the rough draft of ‘Living in the Light’ yesterday. and have it typed out. The hard copy is now sitting in the rework pile. That leaves me with ‘King’s Daughter’ and “Luthien’s Song’ to finish writing for next year … and I am at the 1/3 mark on both of those. Cora is working on the cover for ‘First Contact’ and I should be seeing the finished product shortly. It is gorgeous… you are going to love it when I show it off. I have hit the 10% mark on writing that one. I am lucky it is a 2015 release.
It is cold outside… a reminder that we live in Canada and I hope not a forecast for colder things to come. . Snoop won’t go within ten feet of the outside door, he knows where it is warm. (He tends to hibernate in winter) The forecast for today including windchill is -34C… they call it an Arctic high. Bright skies, and biting cold winds.

Not working. So he is content to , , and . Until someone gets tired of hearing the rumpus and goes to lay down with him for a while until he gets settled.
As far as doing this in my sleep, it is simple, and he does it all the time as he pokes his wet little nose in my face and purrs, until I gather him in my arms, turn his back to me and pull him under the feather blanket.
