It is a long weekend

Yes, that caught me off guard,AddEmoticons04263 and don’t ask me why. AddEmoticons04279 We all know that this is the one everyone waits for, at least locally. AddEmoticons04274 It is time to put in the garden, yada, yada… AddEmoticons04258 … But for some reason, it wasn’t computing this year.AddEmoticons04280  I am supposed to be getting company, not sure if that is going to happen or not.AddEmoticons04259 10-25-09  Some things can be pretty iffy at times.AddEmoticons04263  It has been a really strange week, no writing, no editing, as much reading as I could fit in. smiley-happy120 Even Tath and Thena haven’t been on the tear as much as they usually are.cat 50  Thena would love to go outside, but with all the wood ticks and hunting birds out there, not happening pussycat. cat 54 She would be a snack for the hunting birds. dd27 Tath couldn’t care less. cat 28 If you would take the two characters of those cats and merge them, you would probably end up with someone like Snoop. cat 36 Lazy Tomcat with attitude.cat 22  I can’t say that Tath is the ultimate lazy Tomcat, or that he doesn’t have attitude, he does.cat 28.. But… then there is Thena,cat 53 10-16-27 who is a loving kitty cat, who will let anyone pet her, but not hold her, unless it is a select few. cat 42 If you don’t fall into that category, you are apt to get hissed at. cat 39 If you don’t take her seriously and pursue the matter, you will get warned, cussed and (if you still don’t believe anything that small can cause serious damage), ask the vet why she wears gloves to examine her, and refuses to cut her nails.  (which is something else that needs to be done.) cat 45 Tath will let you cut his nails without much fuss, but you have to catch him first. CatSmiley21 He isn’t so wild about being held either, and thinks that because he is so pretty, he can get away with murder.  cat 26

In case anyone thinks that the characters in my books are not bugging me to tell their story, I have news on that front.AddEmoticons04259 10-25-09  Intercession is poking at me, with Lost Kingdoms beginning to clear its throat, and The Phoenixes Choice sighing in the background… this should be interesting.AddEmoticons04263  There is going to be a lot going on in Intercession, but that is good, because it will be another large book.AddEmoticons04231 10-25-25  No, nothing like Kings of the Empire, but still large.AddEmoticons04257  All reports from the editing crew says there hasn’t been much progress with them. AddEmoticons04240 21-08-43  ‘Hunter’s Challenge’ is only 25% done in the second last edit. AddEmoticons04267 10-25-02 ‘Beyond the Myth’ is coming S-L-O-W-L-Y… or so I have been told. AddEmoticons04274 ‘Kings of the Empire’ is about 33% done in the main edit. smiley-happy120 We will see how things progress over the long weekend.AddEmoticons04258 10-08-18 Or if they do… AddEmoticons04231

I actually broke out the red pen, to go through the first chapter of Intercession, yesterday.  I didn’t get far. AddEmoticons04220 Too many interruptions, and I want to get some reading in … which I am having limited success with. AddEmoticons04274 I have caught up to a few of my favourite authors, and the 5 small piles of books to read have gotten shorter, but I still have a long way to go.AddEmoticons04279.. I might read a little into June, just to get those read.AddEmoticons04267 10-25-02

It has been hazy in the sky lately, too many forest fires both locally and not so close. AddEmoticons04268 I am not in that zone, the terrain that surrounds me is flat and notably prairie. AddEmoticons04270 09-08-04 There are trees, but that is because there is a large river close by.  It has, unfortunately made life difficult for some, because of reparatory problems. AddEmoticons04274 The hospitals have been busy with that.AddEmoticons04259 12-44-22  I hope it doesn’t continue the way it is going, because things are getting out of control.b0403

Well, I guess I should go, although I haven’t said it all.AddEmoticons04259 10-25-09  I will be a signing author at next year’s ROMANCING THE CAPITAL in August of 2017.AddEmoticons04231  For those who are within striking range, you are welcome to stop in. AddEmoticons04257 Tickets are going fast for that event, they always do. AddEmoticons04262  But you don’t need to by a ticket ahead of time to drop in.  AddEmoticons04257 I will be having more to say on this matter as time goes by.AddEmoticons0424  As ever, hoping you have a great long weekend, lots of sun and relaxation, or grass to cut, because tis the season.MSN-Emoticon-155  At least there is colour outside again. MSN-Emoticon-143 Have a good one, until next week… I am off… and running… again.  851583_434480319982268_1738424198_n

    You are not the only one getting caught off guard with the long weekend. It only dawned on me yesterday LOL planning to do more editing on KOTE if my head stops throbbing that is. Also working on more of my swag ideas 😉
    I hope the air clears out for you and you get more reading in. Have a great weekend.

    I guess your long weekend is ahead of us. Our Memorial Day weekend is next weekend. Glad the Dynamic Duo are behaving somewhat and happy you are getting so much reading done, you needed that break. 🙂 Enjoy your long weekend and your reading time.
