Which way did it go?

Have you ever done a computer update and things just… you know, disappeared?

Yeah, well, that. That happened. The weird thing was the hubbinator didn’t say anything when he noticed it while working on the Mac yesterday. Didn’t even peep about not having access to email.

I didn’t notice because I work predominantly off my iPad.

So imagine my surprise when I log on today and nothing comes up. And I’ll be darned if I can remember passwords to the 10 different sites I scroll through every morning. Isn’t that why fingerprint ID and a keychain exist.

Arg. Thankfully, it was an easy fix and I can actually write this blog.

Life is full of such little adventures. I think I’ll take a nap:D

Until next time!

Time on my hands

I was one of the fortunate few who had President’s Day off.

After spending a very long time collecting all of my tax items and dropping them off at the accountants, I decided to spend the rest of the rainy afternoon watching horror movies on Prime and making bracelets. (Yeah, I’m not rich. I am a writer which makes my taxes give me a headache and the money I spend on having someone else handle the tax stuff allows the hubbinator to live much longer. LOL)

These are strands from JesseJamesBeads.com that I strung together to make the bracelets.

Now, it’s back to work.

Until next time!

Sometimes The STARS Align

The hubbinator and I were driving home from the store yesterday and I saw he was getting agitated.

When I asked why, he replied there was a cop car behind us, no doubt running our plates. Now, the hubbinator is a drug dealer in south Phoenix, but he ships out legal drugs to stores and doesn’t do deals in back alleys or swanky parties.

Either way, no one likes a cop car behind them and everyone in our vicinity decided to actually travel the speed limit. Shocking!

So the hubbinator shifted to another lane, so the cop car could pass.

And then I saw it, and I nearly busted a gut laughing so hard. When I finally got around to explaining what the ‘cop’ car was, the hubbinator smile and actually went a little faster so I could take this picture:

Truth be told, I wanted to follow it and maybe I could meet Alice. Then again, the license plate told me I might encounter more than zombies.

Until next time!

I’m a wimp

 

While most of the country is socked in with winter storms, I am dreading going to the grocery store.

It’s true.

Not because of people. Okay, not only because of people but mostly because of that wind shower at the door.

I know I have thin blood. I grew up in the Valley of the Sun and have adapted to 115+ (F) weather. I function pretty well in hot temperatures.

I want to hibernate in cold weather.

Cold for Arizona, that is. Which makes it devilishly hard to go to a store and get hit by a blast of freezing air. I know I pretty much make the same faces as buddy the elf in this scene:

 

And the refrigerator section at Costco is even worse. See, I told you I was a wimp:D

Until next time!

Hip-Hip-Hooray!

I finished! It took me a lot longer than I thought. Months longer than I’d planned. But finally, I finished the rough draft of my book.

Now, it is the edits, edits, and more edits.

Plus proofing.

But there’s also some fun stuff, like the cover.

Either way, it is quite satisfying to finish a book, especially one that took so long to write and is 500 manuscript pages long.

But you’ll hear more on the book later. Right now, I need a nap:D

Until next time.

Thank you

I just wanted to say thank you to all who came out over the weekend at the Chocolate Affair. Saturday was cold and windy, but Sunday was just beautiful weather.

During the lulls, I was able to visit with the authors and dodge a few bees. It’s good to be in a community that supports each other and shares such an amazing amount of creativity.

For those who stopped by to make a purchase, thank you for supporting us.

For those who don’t read that kind of smut, I hope you find smut to read.

For those who only read newspapers and magazines, I think you are very brave to read such true crime horror stories.

For those who only look at pictures, don’t disrespect comics and graphic novels (I won’t talk about the other kind).

And lastly, for those who sailed by without making eye contact and ignoring the bribery of free pens and chocolate, you were probably smart. Some of our characters bite. And so do some authors. Bwahaha.

Until next time
