Monday Roundup!

It was a good weekend! Well except for the part where I was cleaning the outside of the dishwasher, hit my thumb and split the nail WAY back onto the nail bed. It hurt too much to even swear.  Which led me to the obvious conclusion:  Cleaning is dangerous and should be avoided. You all with me????

I started reading Nalini Singh’s BRANDED BY FIRE and love it so far!

On the Dog Wars, the wizard is still winning. He likes to tease me about it.  All I’m going to say in my defense is that Wizard knew he was teasing a Witch…


Don’t worry, I’ll turn him back…eventually.

So how was your weekend?

Do Witches Twitter?

twitterWhat do you guys think of Twitter? Are you all sending out Tweets?

What do you say? Who do you follow? Why?

I’m really curious. And yeah, I’m pretty sure I’ll sign up eventually. But most of you know how bad I am at Facebook!

I sure as heck don’t want to be the author that has a Twitter Temper Tantrum. Although authors can always find a place for public ATTs (Author temper tantrums) over reviews on Amazon and various blogs over reviews several times a year.

So tell me, do you Twitter?

Burning Question…

What do you think?


Should we give these two dogs monkeys a new witch to play with?

Dog Wars!

Great weekend, I got lots of work done and my oldest son and his girlfriend came out for dinner. They brought my middle son’s dog, Bailey, with them and I spent most of the time on the floor playing with the dog.

I love dogs!

The Wizard does not love dogs. He likes Bailey, pets him a little bit then he’s done. He does not get down on the floor and play tug of war so long that he wakes up with a cramp in his hand at 3am. So for a few years now, we’ve been having a dog discussion.

dog-huskyMe: I want a dog. (Here’s a pic of a dog from my local pound)

Wizard: We can’t. The back yard is mostly pool and cement.

Me: There’s enough dirt in the planters and stuff. I want a dog.

Wizard: It gets too hot for a dog out here.

Me:  It’ll be a house dog!

Wizard groans: He’ll tear up the furniture!

Me: I’ll get an older dog from the pound.

Wizard: There’s no one to take care of the dog when we leave.

Are you seeing a pattern here? I will not get a dog until Wizard agrees 100%. Dogs and kids should be wanted and loved. So I wait and bug him. I am patient…

Well okay, maybe I was a tad annoyed and deleted the Wizard’s picture from my cell phone and replaced it with Bailey’s picture. And now I’m calling Bailey my Grand Dog and annoying the bejeebers out of the Wizard.

But let me tell you, Wizard is stubborn. And maybe, possibly, I want a dog in my head more than I do in reality. Dogs require a lot of attention, then there’s vet trips and barking and problems…but shhhh…don’t tell the Wizard. Bugging him is fun!

So how was your weekend?

funny-pictures-cat-threatens-to-edit-your-face1Hey witches, it’s Friday! This week went by so fast I think I might have windburn!

I took yesterday off to work on another project, but today I must read through the manuscript and see what revisions I need to do and be thankful that no one else sees this draft but me! That’s pretty much my plan for the weekend. 

I’m kind of a bummed becauseI have a stack of books I’m dying to read, but I supposed I can read 2010.  Okay, I can read sooner than that, I’m just whining.

Anything you want to whine about this weekend?  Hope you all have a great one!

Appletini Worthy News

appletini-1I didn’t think it would happen, but I finally finished the draft of BLIND MAGIC. It needs a lot of work before I turn it in, but at least I have a draft! My “draft” is something like 465pages so it’s not a small feat. It’s at least worth an Appletini…right?

My husband swears every book is this hard, but man, there were so many moments when I never thought I’d get the draft done.

Now if I can revise it into something readable and in on my deadline, that will be truly amazing! But hey, I have a whole two weeks to do it, what am I worried about? Bwhahahaha!!!!

Okay, guys, what’s your news? What do you have that is Appletini Worthy?

Weekend Roundup

My wgoddessofthehunt_smeekend was great! Friday we finally bought a car we’ve been looking at forever. We keep our cars a long time.  The car we traded in was over nine years old. 

Saturday I went to my chapter meeting of Romance Writer’s of America. It’s always great to hang out with other writers! That’s where I bought  the book I’m reading right now, GODDESS OF THE HUNT by Tessa Dare (Eve Ortega).  I am really enjoying it! It’s been a while since I’ve read a historical romance but now I’m hooked on Tessa Dare’s historical romance!

Sunday I went out to lunch with my sister AND she gave me a huge bag of books. My sister and I trade books, so we get twice the reading for half the price—or something like that. Math isn’t my strong point!

This week and I am going to be writing like a fiend…although I really want to finish Tessa’s book!

How was your weekend?
