No, it isn’t because it is fall and I have to move to stay warm .... though that could be a consideration. It almost froze over the last few days for the first time this fall. I have seen that happen earlier so I won’t comment on that. It is strange, last year I looked forward to winter, it was like … yes, time to change how the world around me looks. This year it is more like… I still haven’t thawed out from last year yet. So not fair. I swear there are icicles from winter attached to my .... well, you know. Sigh. Snoop is not happy about this either, refuses to stay on the porch for more than five minutes at a time. (which happens just once a day) You can’t push him out the front door for a little fresh air, alright, I will admit, it was raining, more like dripping.) You know Snoop and water. Snoop and cold. Snoop and snow. I have been very vocal about these things.
Snoop has been a real pita lately. He is restless and not getting enough exercise, bro needs to get another dog to keep him in shape, not that the other chased him. She used to whine as he batted her nose with his paw. (No, he did not extend his nails to smack her. And yes, he knew she was too large to fit under the bed)
Last night he decided he didn’t want to sleep on his side of the bed anymore, mine was better... not happening cat. He spent most of the night either on top of me, or on my pillow. I slept in the middle of the bed. He has this habit of flopping his furry body on my face. (or sitting on it, he purrs when he does that) Music to sleep by? I don’t think so cat.
I should be doing the last of the edits on Luthien’s Song this weekend, then it will be headed for Becca so she can format it. It will be interesting to see how fast it will travel to other locations. The pre-ordering format from Amazon has come in handy. Morganna is working on ‘First Contact’ and we are hoping for next weekend on that one, I will quickly run through it again and pass it on the Candy. Right now everyone is running around, frantically trying to keep up with their jobs and the season. There are so many things to do, finishing off the garden, settling the children in school, shutting Snoop up (he wants me to change the weather), getting ready for Halloween, and the scary one, preparing for winter and Christmas. Shiver. Not going there. more than 3 months away. I wonder if I should write something about the tropics to make me feel warmer.
Well, I have to get back to work, going to write a chapter on ‘For the King and Elven Empire’ today. It is time I quit being so lazy. I also have a few pieces of artwork coming in this week. The cover for next year’s EC novel, and collector’s cards... I don’t suppose you would be interested in seeing those when they are released. Nah, didn’t think so. Well, on that note, I am off and running, before Snoop smacks me. He is sitting beside the door screaming that he wants to go out. I know he will enjoy the weather, I will let him back in about three minutes from now, if he will go out there. Chilly this morning. Just come back, wrong direction, he was on the bed, he wants company.
