Jealousy can be a bad thing

Yes, it is common knowledge that jealousy is really bad for you. sad-face In this case it is really bad for Thena, cat 50not that she is the one who is jealous, cat 44 that would be Tath. cat 28 The little green eyed monster (technically blue) is really difficult to live with for her at times. cat 47 Especially when I am trying to sleep and she unconsciously squirms into his territory, or he decides that she has had more than her fair share of cuddles and he deserves more. cat 42  I never knew a cat could swat so hard, he had a fair ‘one, two punch to him’. cat 32  Thena could tell you more about that though, as he teaches her the facts of life. CatSmiley21 #1. If mama yelps because you were careful with your claws… you are in trouble. cat 54 If you infringe on his territory in bed… look out. cat 10 If you spend too much time in what he figures, his zone, you are toast. cat 6 Now, to be fair, Thena can hold her own and often asks for it. dd27 There is nothing like pouncing on a sleeping tomcat without warning. cat 26 She knows better than to jump on top of him and lay down while I am holding him in my arms… you have any idea how heavy two pussycats can be? cat 36 Oy.  Oh yes, and Tath as acquire one of Snoop’s old habits somehow, sitting on the bed and yelling for mom… cat 45 So not happing pussycat, as I used to say to Snoop.  making-bronx-cheer-smiley-emoticon

This week I put Hunter’s Challenge and Kings of the Empire behind me. AddEmoticons04262 The printers say I should have my copies at the end of the week, but I have my doubts. AddEmoticons04259 I am thinking the week after. AddEmoticons04279 We will see who is right. AddEmoticons04280 I am going to go through the first chapter I wrote of Teryka Rose, and then send it off for a quick set of edits. AddEmoticons04274 I will need it for the back of the paperback copy of Merika’s Story. I will then begin to type on The Phoenixes Choice, which is a whole different matter. smiley-happy120  I must be either sleep deprived, or dreaming heavily, because I could have sworn I typed out those first 3 chapters. AddEmoticons04268 Yet, there is no record on my computer of my ever doing so. MSN-Emoticon-sad-crying-025 Sigh.  That means I have 5 chapters minimum to type out. smiley-confused005 It will get done, but not too soon. AddEmoticons04267 10-25-02 My fingers are sore. (Yes, another story.) AddEmoticons04231

The apples on my tree are ready, and boy are there a lot of them… So, I made apple pies and froze them, and apple sauce and froze that. super-happy-dance-smiley-emoticon  After 3 days of peeling and all the rest, my fingers are feeling it.  AddEmoticons04279 Granted, I know there are machines that do all this with minimum effort, but I can’t see the sense of buying one in my case, as I don’t do enough of that type of thing.AddEmoticons04259 10-25-09  BTW, you know anyone who could use some apples? AddEmoticons04264

Next week I plan on getting serious about writing on The Phoenixes Choice, with the idea that I can finish it by Halloween. Smiley-Begging Wish me luck. MSN-Emoticon-155 I figure that if I am able to get that done I may have time to fit in Lost Kingdoms of the Empire, and maybe even The Siren Connection, before the end of the year, those 2 are shorts and don’t take as long. AddEmoticons04263  In 2 weeks from now, we should be putting the last of ‘Beyond the Myth’ to bed, as that is when the cover is supposed to come in.  super-happy-dance-smiley-emoticon  That will put another behind me.  clicking-your-heels-smiley-emoticon  If I can do that, I will be working on my 2018 schedule after. AddEmoticons04258 Should be interesting.  I am holding to the idea of doing ‘The Goddess’ over the winter, and if that works out, possibly being able to knock off ‘Teryka Rose’ by spring. AddEmoticons04259 That would have me racing to write ‘Celebration of Peace’ before I go to Ottawa for RTC Ottawa next August. AddEmoticons04231 Nothing like a schedule to keep you hopping, speaking of which, I am sure you have all noticed my upcoming release list. AddEmoticons04262 Becca has finished with the new website, and I think it is great, hope you do as well. AddEmoticons04257 So, on that note, it is time for this person to begin to work on her to do list for the day.  Until next week, have a good one, and enjoy what looks like a very nice fall day outside. AddEmoticons04225 22-31-36

    I keep hoping my copy of HC will get to me soon. Those Kittens a a true handful. They are so beautiful though it would be hard to stay upset with them. Happy the writing schedule is going so good for you . It will make it easier to go to RTC if you aren’t worried about hitting a deadline.Loved the blog.
