Gosh, it is such a beautiful day! Autumn is proving to be lovely, this year, though the colour has just started. But the air is crisp, the sky is blue, and I don’t have to cook dinner today. Good enough reason to celebrate, and I have a bottle of Strawberry Zinfandel.
Oh, and BTW, here’s a great blog entry about my first Awaiting book, Awaiting the Moon!!
It’s Friday, and I’ve spent another week writing and doing promotion, and next week I’ll have a nice tidbit to tell you all, about a website that will be making my September release ‘Awaiting the Fire‘ their pick of the day soon. Yay! Also, I am going to be revamping and extending the deadline for the contest I have listed here for that very reason.
So to wrap up the week, I thought I’d just talk a bit about something I’ve been thinking about for a long time. Continue reading
Well, this time I was right; Josie Maran went home on Dancing With The Stars, and I really felt sorry for the poor kid. She looked so downhearted, and didn’t even take the opportunity to rag on the judges when Tom Bergeron gave her the chance.
What I thought was tacky – besides Dolly Parton’s outfit – was the way Josie’s dance partner tried to give his votes to Cameron Mathison. You cannot bequest your votes after you’re kicked off! It doesn’t work that way!
Tonight: Survivor… but it clashes with Ugly Betty, and Betty is going to win this smackdown.

Just a quick entry… I wasn’t expecting it, but Romancing the Blog used an ‘Open Blog Night’ I wrote!! yay.
Check them out and read my entry, ‘Trend-Hopping’ or ‘Why I write about wolfy men.”
I can’t imagine living anywhere that didn’t have four distinct seasons. Winter is lovely, and a period of rest for nature; I get a LOT of writing done in winter. Spring always adds a zip to my step; gardening is exciting and exhausting, the air is fresh, and I make all kind of plans… some of which never come to fruition. Summer is the season of good times and friends, hanging out, parties and swimming and sunshine.
But I think I love autumn best. Continue reading
