A leaf just fell!

Yes, it is showing signs of fall,nervous-934 beyond the rapid temperature loss. nervous-934 The leaves are turning,AddEmoticons04259 although the grass is still growing and very green. AddEmoticons04280 It is very wet here, there has been enough rain to keep the river at flood stage, and all the foliage green all summer. smiley-confused005 (These thing too must come to an end.) AddEmoticons04268 I can see where the trees are slowly beginning to change color, and this week will probably be a prime example of how fast they can. giggle-animated-animation-giggle-smiley-emoticon-000389-large We are expecting a few nighttime lows near freezing, that will send a message no one wants to hear. making-bronx-cheer-smiley-emoticon I am so not looking forward to winter this year, but like everything else, I know it is coming.smiley-confused005

I don’t believe it is the idea of winter actually coming,AddEmoticons04259 I think it is more the forecast that everyone is saying the Farmers Almanac gave…. brutal, hard, winter. making-bronx-cheer-smiley-emoticon Sigh. Please let them be wrong. AddEmoticons04212 20-55-04 Those type of winters make me feel like a shut in. AddEmoticons04282 21-08-40

Snoop seems to have burrowed in with all of this in mind.AddEmoticons00937 He isn’t at the door demanding I let him out. addemoticons00935 22-24-21 He is in my brother’s room, (Yes, brother is alergic), curled up on his bed in a sunbeam, sleeping. AddEmoticons00949 Maybe it is just that he is a lazy old Tomcat, yes, that sounds better than brutal winter. AddEmoticons00916 Everyone says we should check to see how high the squirrels are hiding their nuts, no squirrels and the only nut is the one typing this. AddEmoticons04231 10-25-25 They also mention squirrels tails being thicker. AddEmoticons04240 22-18-24 Not about to go for a walk along that river back looking for squirrels to check. AddEmoticons04236 10-01-50 On very cold days Snoop dives under the feather blanket,AddEmoticons00937 places his head on my feather pillow,cat 22 and waits patiently for me to come back. MSN-Emoticon-155 Not happening cat, sorry. AddEmoticons04220 I have things to do, books to read and write.AddEmoticons04224

Which brings me to another matter writing. AddEmoticons04277 I haven’t been doing any and I have to admit that after only putting pen to paper a couple times in August I am feeling pretty good. AddEmoticons04258 I have this fear that I came very close to burning myself out. AddEmoticons04274 That means I will only release 4 next year… I think I mentioned this before and everyone was happy about the idea. AddEmoticons04225

In the next year I will finish writing ‘For the King and Elven Empire’, ‘Integration’, ‘Tratchars’ and another that I haven’t named, which will be book 3 of the Tantalus Series. 0020 That should keep me busy. smiley-bounce016 Notice I didn’t mention ‘Surrounded by the Light’? SnoopyDance I wonder if I should include the Novelettes? snoopy-emoticon-001 I will be writing a different Christmas story in 2016 than the usual one about the Elven Children. th_snoopylinus_ani Not going to release about what yet… nope, nope, nope.snoopy-emoticon-002 AddEmoticons04258

I also have something to share that Cora Graphics put together for me. SnoopyDance What do you think of my collector card? -1 Perhaps I should have kept this quiet for a while, but I couldn’t. AddEmoticons04231 The Tantalarian will be on the front and the planet scene on the back. AddEmoticons04258 People may be interested in them, or not. Snoop says he want some too. cat 53 10-16-27 Thinking about putting something different on the one for the Elven Chronicles, but what? AddEmoticons04259 10-08-34 I will figure it out.AddEmoticons04263 22-49-23

Until next week, from the Snoop and I, Have a good one. AddEmoticons00916

    I love tyhe Tantalus card. So they don’t all have black wings? It is certainly beautiful. So no Christmas story next year?
    I am only afraid of your having a brutal winter because your river is so high now.
    Enjoyed the blog very much.
