Weekend Warrior!

I went all over the place this weekend! First I went to my local RWA meeting.  Avon editorial assistant Esi Sogah was there, and she was lovely! Funny, smart, forward thinking and honest. How could I not love her? Plus I hung out with my friends!

But I got home early.

For months now, Wizard has been grumbling about a new bed. Now I’ve been grumbling for longer, but I didn’t want to do the actually shopping. And buying. And delivery. And …you know…work involved.

Wizard left some ads out on the table, and then suggested we go shopping. Over and over.

Well Saturday I got home early from my meeting and said, “Okay, fine, I’ll go shopping.

TWO DAYS! TWO FREAKING DAYS OF SHOPPING! Okay, it wasn’t that bad. We really only went to a few places, then Sunday afternoon we made a decision and bought the bed.

It’s coming today and if all goes well, it will be DONE. Yay! Except…

Okay I warned Wizard this was a Slippery Slope. Because if I get anew bed…I need a new sheets, pillows and a comforter. And if I do that, then the bathroom rugs and towels won’t match. And valances…

Do you see where I’m going? I already bought the sheets pillows and comforter and made Wizard come with me!

When we got home, Wizard made haste to his laboratory (some call it a garage) and I haven’t seen him since.

He’s the one that nagged me to go shopping, that’s all I’m saying.

In other news, I had a hot streak of reading, then this last week, I’ve been working long hours and not reading as much. I’m about half way through Shayla Blacks POSSESS ME AT MIDNIGHT. It’s pretty good, although I should have started at the beginning of the series. A LOT of characters, and a lot of worldbuilding already in progress.

So how was your weekend? What are you guys reading?

Storm Watch!

Wizard sent this warning to me.

With all the news on TV lately about the sub zero weather and snow that the east coast and upstate NY areas are experiencing, we shouldn’t forget that Southern California has it’s share of devastating weather  also.

I’ve attached a photo illustrating the excessive damage caused to a home   from a west coast storm that passed through the San Diego area a couple of days ago. It really makes you cherish what you have, and reminds us not to take life for granted!!!

Warning: The attached picture is quite graphic and may not be

suitable  for younger viewers.

so cal storm watch!

I laughed my butt off! In Southern California, if the weather folks thing there’s a chance of any moisture, they call it Storm Watch! And use their, Serious News Voice.

Most of the time, I love So Cal, but it really can be the land of Drama Queens.

For those of you experience Real Weather, you really do have my sympathies! And try not to judge us So Cal folks by the Drama Queen Newfolks :-)

Book Giveaway

Here we are in 2010! Amazing!

New Year’s Eve, Wizard and I made steak, lobster and stuffed baked potatoes. New Years Day, we had baby back ribs and apple pie.

I think Wizard might be getting spoiled :-)

And a certain Witch’s broom might be groaning a bit.

Yesterday, I started cleaning out some stuff, going through books and I have a few copies of some old books (written under Jennifer Apodaca) to give away. I have about five copies each of the anthology SUN SAND AND SEX and full length novel EXTREMELY HOT.  If you are interested in either of the books,  name the titles  the comments. I’ll randomly draw names until I’m out of books.  I’ll announce the winners later in the week.

If no one wants them, I’ll just donate them somewhere.

Is anyone else trying to clean out stuff? I really want to simplify and pare down this year!
