Moving right along

Boy, can you tell that summer is quickly coming to an end. AddEmoticons04268 The temperatures are still up there, but I have learned in the past that this can be something that changes at moment’s notice. AddEmoticons04279 The first sign of fall coming, in this yard, is the leaves beginning to change colour. b0403 Then, there are signs that the children are getting ready to return to school, which means that the sales for school supplies are on..AddEmoticons04267 10-25-02. note to self, check out the sales to see if they are selling bic pens..AddEmoticons04263. I only have a dozen left.  smiley-confused005

Today, I finish off the HM Veggie soup that I began yesterday. AddEmoticons04257 Yes, it would have been done already and in the freezer to munch/slurp up during the winter, but I forgot an item. AddEmoticons04240 21-08-43 The frustrating part of that was that I was looking over the item I didn’t buy to do this with, because I didn’t think I needed it. AddEmoticons04231 (eye roll here).  Anyway, this gets done today. AddEmoticons04269 Then, looking out the kitchen window at an apple tree that is so loaded that the branches are bowing, AddEmoticons04259 10-25-09 it looks like I have to do something about the goodies on that tree in a couple weeks..AddEmoticons04274. note to self, buy flour to make pie dough with.  I will put a few apple pies into the freezer, ready to cook, but I think I will spend more time making little apple whatevers, we never did put a name on them. AddEmoticons04231  I will take pie dough, roll it out and cut it into larger squares – I will fill the squares with apple, sugar and cinnamon and bake them… they freeze well. AddEmoticons04257 When I feel like a not too sweet treat, I go into the freezer, take a couple out and warm them in the microwave… yum. AddEmoticons04262 It is a good thing others are standing in line for some of these apples as well, because there is WAY more than I need on my own.AddEmoticons04279

Today I get the completed cover from Cora for Kings of the Empire. 1317309lsk5aj07xu I will load it and the book will go in for testing. giving-thumbs-up-winking-smiley-emoticon If it passes, I will order the first copy for proofing, if it passes, I will order MY group of books.  AddEmoticons04263

I finished the reworking phase of Merika’s Story, and I am going to take a break to read a few books, until the end of the month. AddEmoticons04263 I am hoping to get 4-5 books read. AddEmoticons04258 I will then begin to write Lost Kingdoms of the Empire, as that one is coming in a lot stronger now.Smiley-Begging  I will follow that up with The Phoenixes Choice, and the first chapter of Teryka Rose, book 2 of the Daughters of the Valley Trilogy.AddEmoticons04257  Again, over the winter, I want to get The Goddess finished. AddEmoticons04237 (As well as The Siren Connection – part of the Tantalus Series).  That should put me into 2018/2019 writing schedule, which I have to make up yet.  (Giving groan). AddEmoticons04279 I will dedicate next summer to relaxing and my Ottawa trip, where I will be one of the signing members of RTC Ottawa, August 3-5.  dog5

What is happening to the anti-social bratz, you ask? dd27 I seem to be in their bad mama box type graces. cat 28 They are ignoring me, unless I am in bed and yes, they are ticked that this is not happening nearly enough. cat 45 (Especially Tath)  They seem to think I do my best writing in there with them. cat 53 Point taken, but not happening cats.CatSmiley11  So, they sit in my favourite chair and wait for me to move them… this when I have so many other things to do. cat 50 Lately, they have taken to chasing me as I move, to be underfoot more, and laying on the chair, while they watch me continue to do what I feel has to get done. AddEmoticons00937 Yes, my to do list never ends.  Where does all this work come from? cat 3

No matter, this has gone on long enough, and it is time to move on. sad-face It is time to get the soup stuff ready to go into the pot, and something tells me I am going to need a larger pot, again. AddEmoticons04263 Until next week, here is hoping that we can find an end to the job list, so I can write undisturbed..cat 36. all together now..cat 26. one, two, three…. yuk, yuk, yuk, yuk, yuk … yuk.  MSN-Emoticon-155

    I can’t wait to see the KOTE in print. The shelf with your books is getting full, just the way I like it.
    That soup you are making is delicious. Do you think if you freeze a big container really well, will survive a trip to me in the mail? LOL
    Thanks for the chuckles, as usual XOXO

    Loved it . Why are you in the bad mama box? They are the ones usually getting into trouble. I hope you do get your reading time in, you deserve it. I can see why you want to get ahead on your writing with RTC coming up next year. I would imagine it will take a lot of doing, Will Tweet and shared,
