What a week!

First, I would like to welcome all the new followers to my weekly blog, AddEmoticons04262there are many of you, and I hope you won’t be too disappointed… running around, rolling your eyes and saying… why? AddEmoticons04280

This week winter came to stay..AddEmoticons04268. I am safe to say that because, after all, I live in mid-Canada and this is the last half of November..smiley3527. we are lucky we made it this far without getting slammed. AddEmoticons04279 Usually we get things like a snow or ice storm for Halloween. AddEmoticons04274 We almost made it to the end of the week before we got dumped on. AddEmoticons04258 I am sure Mother Nature spent at least a moment thinking, “She has 2 appointments, the one she has to drive the longest to is the furthest away, I will wait.” AddEmoticons04275  Take this Mother Nature.  making-bronx-cheer-smiley-emoticon I am thinking Murphy was behind her whispering in her ear too.smiley-confused005

When I woke up and checked the road conditions yesterday I knew this would be a fun day..AddEmoticons04274. and to be fair, it wasn’t as bad as I feared. super-happy-dance-smiley-emoticon I managed to miss all the multiple car pileups and the ditches. 1317309lsk5aj07xu It is a good idea to make sure you are prepared for things like this and get your vehicle’s skates sharpened before venturing out into this weather. AddEmoticons04231 10-25-25 I made it back home with most of my wits and sanity, AddEmoticons04261(which everyone will doubt). making-bronx-cheer-smiley-emoticon I also got home without soiling the back of my pants,AddEmoticons04262 which was in doubt at moments.  nervous-934

I found I was in the dog house when I got back home, cat 28neither Thena nor Tath would talk to me,CatSmiley21 wouldn’t let me hold them and generally gave me looks that failed to make me feel guilty. cat 54 They tried, they failed. making-bronx-cheer-smiley-emoticon They forgave me in time for bed.cat 10  I tend to turn the heat down at night and they wanted access to the excess space under the feather blanket. cat 36 To make sure I understood what they thought of being abandoned for the better part of the day, they spread the pile of papers, I had placed on the dresser in the spare room, across two rooms. cat 53 I also have to remake the bed in there… etc… you get the picture. cat 26 Thena decided she wants outside desperately, so I put her there.cat 45.. she proved she has a voice that is more than squeaky,CatSmiley11 Tath refuses to go anywhere near the door, it is cold out there, and what is that white stuff?… not going there.  cat 47  Thena is the adventurous one.  Tath, not so much… cat 44.

I had too many interruptions this week, with all the appointments, so I only got 4 chapters written on ‘Hunter’s Challenge’ AddEmoticons04279 That should put me in the 35,000 word area for this month. AddEmoticons04268 I should be able to add to that considerably over the weekend, and then go on a typing binge. AddEmoticons04274 I met with Sarah yesterday, and she is working her way through the last edit on ‘Tratchars’, AddEmoticons04257which means the physical copies will be available to me in December. clicking-your-heels-smiley-emoticon She will then go straight into ‘Earwen’s Song’, which could make that one available (again only to me)making-bronx-cheer-smiley-emoticon in January.  No one would want these books months in advance of them being released, I am sure.  AddEmoticons04263  If Things go right ‘Into the Demons Lair’ could be in my hands by the end of February. bth_thXMas-Carols I should be well into writing ‘Kings of the Empire’ by then. super-happy-dance-smiley-emoticon Yes, I am ahead of schedule.giving-thumbs-up-winking-smiley-emoticon

Well, I have to go pick the winners from yesterday’s event, AddEmoticons04231so I will end this… hope you have a good week, and I the weather improves so my American friends can have a great Thanksgiving, 8_5_28I believe that is next week… and I will come back with a special blog for them. animated_thanksgiving_dinner_at_smileys As usual… Take care and I will see you in another week. AddEmoticons04225

    I’m so glad all went well with the driving yesterday-can be really scary with all the snow you had. We are supposed to have a cool Thanksgiving, which I like since the oven will be on for a few hours and can’t wait for the turkey-yum!! Poor bratz, left alone all day but not nice they take it out on Mama!! I just love those two and their antics-my Dynamic Duo – LOL. Have a great weekend and good luck with your typing.
