The geese have flown

The river used to be full of geese, but most have headed South. AddEmoticons04268 That means it is getting closer to winter.  smiley3527 There are still some that will linger and try to tough it out, silly birds. building-snowman-smiley-emoticon It is getting cold out there birds, head for the beaches, and I don’t mean ours. AddEmoticons04279 True, ours are still ice free, but this is a time limited thing. AddEmoticons04259 10-25-09 They forget where they are sometimes.AddEmoticons04263

It seems strange to hear that there is snow South of us, but that is about the case of things.  AddEmoticons04240 21-08-43 Personally, I hope we don’t get too much this year. Smiley-Begging The rivers are running high, as are the lakes. nervous-934 Under those conditions, if we get a lot of snow, things will get pretty tense in spring.. AddEmoticons04264. yes, there is nothing like going a quarter of a mile down the road to see the river lapping at the other side of the highway. Scared_smiley When it does that here, I know that further upriver, there will be miles of land under water. AddEmoticons04279

I am nearly prepared for winter, but not ever ready.  AddEmoticons04231 I think time does that to a person. AddEmoticons04259 10-25-09 When I was a child I loved winter and would play in the snow for hours. 0004  If it was going to be -40 it was no big deal, you dressed for it, and moved around a lot. building-snowman-smiley-emoticon We would come in cold, but happy. AddEmoticons04257  Now we look out the window and shiver at the thought of poking our noses out of the doorway for a little fresh air… and boy can the air be fresh at -40. AddEmoticons04263 Pushing that thought aside for now… it is too early in the year for that type of thing. 1lg172snowsmilies

Well, I went to see the dentist on Wednesday and it was an interesting trip. AddEmoticons04268 Yes, I lost a tooth. AddEmoticons04279  It nearly popped out, it was so happy to leave home. AddEmoticons04231 I have one more trip and then I am finished for the year there… I owe him my next six paychecks after this. AddEmoticons04274 It was funny in some ways because the Hygienist kept popping into the room to check on how I was coming along with my next book, while he was trying to work. AddEmoticons04258  How am I doing, you ask? AddEmoticons04287 13-27-02 Well, I am typing. AddEmoticons04279 The typing amount has risen to over 63,000 words. AddEmoticons04274 The written amount, I am not sure, I will guess at over 90.000. AddEmoticons04231 ‘The Phoenixes Choice’ is a busy book, but that is nothing unusual. AddEmoticons04263 I am half way on ‘The Siren Connection’.  If all goes well, I should be finished both writing and typing by the end of next week, which means I will be reworking the rough manuscripts. super-happy-dance-smiley-emoticon That should take a week, and they will be ready for the editing pile. clicking-your-heels-smiley-emoticon You know what that means for December… you guessed it, I get to do some reading of my own. smiley-happy120 I have put aside twenty six books.  (wish me luck on that.) AddEmoticons04258 If I get bored, I can always rework the manuscript I called ‘Equals’. AddEmoticons04263

Thena and Tath are all for helping me with the reading. cat 10 They have been extra good this week, all things considered.  CatSmiley21 I think they have been feeling my pain with me.  cat 54 It has definitely been hugs for mama. cat 36 They have even been fluffing up the blanket that I use to read with, in anticipation of December.  Yes, there will be layers on that chair, with them on top. cat 53 10-16-27

Well, it is time I took off again, not like the geese. AddEmoticons04263 This girl has 4 chapters she plans to type out today and, if I don’t do it, well there is always tomorrow. AddEmoticons04279  As ever, it never stops.  Until next week, have a good one… cat 26AddEmoticons04225 22-31-36

    So happy you are on the way to feeling better. Your Geese are heading our way which makes my son happy as he hunts all kinds of birds. My floors are clean and it is smelling good down here and ready to decorate after Thanksgiving. Hope you get all twenty of your books read. You deserve a good break. Loved the blog.

    I’m so glad all went well with the dentist *whew*! Hopefully, you get to read all the books you have saved for next month-not sure you’ll get through all of them though. You deserve a good break-you have worked so hard and are ahead of schedule-time to enjoy!
