Summer, I Hardly Knew Ye

August 31, 2015

It’s the end of August already. How did that happen? It feels as though summer just zoomed by, which is okay with me since it’s my least favourite season. There are two reasons for that: heat and bugs. That being said, I can’t really complain about it this year as it was pretty decent . . . knock on wood.

Shark Week

July 6, 2015

Yesterday was the beginning of Shark Week on the Discovery Channel. Every year I make it appointment television. The first night of programming was pretty awesome and the rest of the week promises to be equally great. While endlessly fascinating, I’m more than happy to watch the goings on from the comfort of my living room, hee hee. {:p

Every Journey Begins With A Single Keystroke

June 20, 2015

The work in progress is going well so far, knock on wood. It feels great when I finish my word count for the day, which is always a welcome experience. The story is unfolding and I’m intrigued to see where it takes me and my characters, leaving any assessment of it until it’s time to begin revisions. It’s a journey I’m looking forward to.

Rainy Days & Sunny Smiles

June 15, 2015

Had a good rainstorm the other day, which was much needed. There was no thunder or lightning, but at times it seemed like a torrential downpour. I loved the sound of it as the drops hit the deck, not to mention the atmospheric look of it too. Though it makes my bones ache from time to time, a rainy day still makes me smile.

I also love movies that I enjoy watching no matter how many times I’ve seen them. An old standby is National Treasure, which never ceases to amuse me. Newer favourites are Draft Day and Guardians of the Galaxy.

The Triple Crown

June 7, 2015

I watched the Belmont Stakes yesterday and ended up shouting for joy and clapping up a storm, much like millions of others I suspect. After American Pharoah won the Kentucky Derby, I hoped he’d win the Preakness so that he’d have a shot at the triple crown. Even so, I tried to keep my enthusiasm in check, since there have been a few horses in the last thirty-seven years with the chance to take it if they won the Belmont.

It was an exhilarating race. He led from start to finish and the jubilance of the crowd translated even on the TV screen. The announcer said he had the second fastest time among triple crown winners and the sixth fastest Belmont ever.

It was wonderful.

The Sword & the Pen

June 4, 2015

The Hardhome episode of Game of Thrones that aired last Sunday was fantastic. I actually burst into applause during the battle between Jon Snow and the White Walker. In between covering my mouth and hoping certain characters survived the fight and gasping at what happened to various Wildlings and men of the Night’s Watch, not to mention a certain giant, I was completely absorbed.

I’m working on a new project that’s also consumed my attention in the best possible way. I adore the idea and am excited to see how it develops. It’s a nice feeling.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

February 14, 2015

I finally tasted Godiva Chocolate last night. It was sinfully delicious. I have to say I’m partial to the Crème Brûlée Desert Truffle. Yum.

Wishing everyone a day brimming with laughter & love.

Happy New Year!!!

January 1, 2015

I hope everyone has a wonderful 2015.

Season’s Greetings

December 21, 2014

Happy Holidays to one and all. Here’s to 2014. May the rest of it be filled with peace, joy, love, and merriment.

Twinkle Twinkle

November 19, 2014

Got a star for the Christmas tree the other day and it’s sparkly and silver. I can’t wait to put the tree up to see what it looks like. Snow has been on the ground for a few weeks now, so a Christmas vibe is already in the air. Ah yes, tis the season for some holiday reads. {:p
