Happy Friday!

Ugh, the heat! Here in Southern CA it’s hot and dry, and both Wizard and I are cranky. Plus, I hate writing a synopsis, and I’m trying to write two of them for the next two books in the Savaged Series; Savaged Vows and Savaged Devotion. You all know how I love these books, but getting all the story beats and emotion into a synopsis for my editor is a massive challenge. I’ll get there–I always do, but I seem to like to take the long way :-) I think a lot of it is just the weather, sinuses and Wizard’s back issues getting to me. Today will be better!

I have something to look forward to this weekend–it’s our anniversary and we’re going to one of our favorite restaurants on the beach. Being married to the love of my life for a few decades is something to celebrate and I’m really looking forward to it!

Do you realize the holidays are here? My calendar is already filling up with Thanksgiving and Christmas plans! Wasn’t it just summer? And how can it be the holidays when it was over 90 here yesterday? I’m confused, LOL!

What are your plans this weekend? Whatever it is, let’s all have a great weekend!

    Yeah, not sure what’s up with the heat here either. It’s totally harshing my fishing groove. Ugh, and synopsis writing blows. :hugs: Hang in there. OMG, Happy Anniversary!! Decades, plural, is definitely something to celebrate. I hope you have a wonderful time. No. The holidays are not here. No. I refuse to think about them. (Okay, so we did already start talking about whether to have turkey for Thanksgiving, but that’s it.)

    Well, I’m at 32K on my WIP. I’d like to get that to at least 37-38K this weekend. We’re supposed to have cooler temps, so fishing is on the schedule and will hopefully include some catching of keeper fish. Football, of course. My team is still unbeaten, so there’s that. Exciting stuff all around. =o)

    We had a front come through. Cooler and damp today. More fallish. So yay. Up until yesterday, the heat was breaking 100 year-old records. :P

    You and I are on the same page re: synopsis. And proposals. And I’m rewriting–again–the beginning of the next book. *sigh* Plus doing edits on a book coming out Nov. 22nd.

    My Christmas tree is still up from last year. Sh’up.

    Happy, HAPPY anniversary to you and Wiz. Y’all are awsome!!!! <3 <3 <3

    B.E., thank you on our anniversary. I was barely 20 when we married…so…yep, a few decades :-)

    I like your holiday denial method, LOL! I enjoy Thanksgiving, but Christmas shopping and worrying about gifts stresses me. The rest I love!

    You’re doing fantastic on your word count! Hope your weekend is filled with cooler temps. lost of fishing and winning teams.

    Silver, that’s awesome that you guys got fall weather. I’m jealous in a good way.

    You’re ahead on Christmas if you have your tree up. No reason to mention it’s still up from last year :-)

    Isn’t multi tasking fun? But you’ll get it all done and have an awesome relase on the 22nd!

    Thanks on our anniversary. Have a great weekend!

    Happy Anniversary! You two go out and celebrate big time at that lovely place on the beach. Is it the place Wizard took you to and you posted a photo? The sun was getting ready to set and it was very beautiful.

    Our 25th is this Wed. and we’re going out. We never go out during the week so this will different ;).

    It’s easy to see how the heat can make you a bit frustrated. You’ve had a full plate. I hope you’re feeling better. The heat can bring on sinus trouble and with what you’ve been dealing with, keep an eye on it.

    Sure wish Wizard’s back were feeling better. It really does a number on you when the one you love is in pain.

    I hear you on the holidays. Three weeks ago I was in Target and they were already playing carols :(.

    Enjoy your weekend and have fun celebrating!

    Viki, thanks on our anniversary. It’s a different place than the one we posted the photo of–that place was gorgeous but the food wasn’t great.

    I remembered that your anniversary is right after ours :-) Hope you have a great night out on Wednesday!

    I’ve been taking a sinus nose spray that is helping reduce my sinus problems so I’m happy about that. Yesterday was just pure crankiness without a specific reason. I don’t get like that often, but everyone is entitled I guess.

    I hope your arm is improving. It can’t be rushed, and that’s so frustrating. As for Wizard is a better today than yesterday, so that’s good.

    Have a nice weekend!
