I am typing away and the Tath nag comes into the room, mawing me (it is a Siamese thing)… I get up and go check the food dish, it is full, I check the litter pan, it is empty… So… what’s the problem, right? He continues… mom, mom, mom… Dog gone it cat, learn English. Sheesh. All night it is pat, pat pat… let me under the cover, let me out… make up your mind cat… even Thena is irritated. (It was the other way around the other night, but after a couple of times where he laid a whooping on her, she settled down. Yes, things were different then, he wanted to sleep, she wanted to romp. Trying to tell them, you do these things in the daytime, you don’t sleep in the daylight, you sleep when it is dark.
Which reminds me, we went to the vet for shots the other day, I expected this event to be on the level of a 3 ring circus… I walked into the the vet’s office, expecting Thena to go off the deep end and play her snarl/hiss game… nope… good as gold... hot gold, but gold… she did hiss, but that was the extent of it. They weighed her, checked out her ears… yada, yada, vaccinated her, and back she went into the carry case. Woah, but I will take it, even the vet is happy that her arms are not about to get shredded. Time for Tath cat, he is shy, but when you get him out he behaves, more or less. They weighed him… 11 pounds, and he is 2 ft long, so you know he is one big kitty. They cooed over him, checked him out, told him what a beautiful kitty he was… he lapped it up, then pressed against me… I have a feeling he knew what was coming up... he took his needle like someone going to stand in front of a firing squad... I can do this, I am brave… MOMMA! It was difficult to put him into the carry case here, but not there.
Well, to get back to what I did this week, I managed to get a book read, yes, it was a small one, and yes, I am into a big one, expecting to get another small one read besides it before I get back to writing. I reworked ‘Beyond the Myth’ and it is now in Eniko’s file. Eniko is working on ‘Hunter’s Challenge’, Fran is working on ‘Forbidden Contact’, Morganna is working on ‘Into the Demons Lair’, Sarah is putting the finishing touches on the redo of ‘Life Mate to a King’. AND… trumpets blowing… ‘Earwen’s Song’ is in Becca’s files to be formatted.
That means, sometime this week, it will be available for preorder. It also means I will be talking to Cora about the back cover, because I can’t do that until I have a page count. I figure that I will start to write on ‘To Capture an Ancient’ either Monday, or Tuesday, and by the time I am finished that one, I will be in the mood to get into ‘Kings of the Empire’. I probably won’t be out of that one until May. I will go straight into ‘Intercession’ at that time and follow it with ‘The Phoenixes Choice’… we all know I am a glutton for punishment.
It is melting here today, tomorrow it is supposed to be chilly, and get progressively cold thereafter. So, if any of the kiddies are wanting to make a snowman in this area, this is the time, so it can become an iceman shortly after. Well, it is time I went and put my feet up and got smothered with furballs. As usual, have a good one… and don’t do anything I wouldn’t do… going to a mini family reunion tomorrow, will tell you how that went next weekend. No, Thena and Tath are not going.
