Oops, I did it again

I missed Caturday. In my defense, I was at a writer's conference giving a workshop on worldbuilding, so I kind of have a good excuse. As an apology, I offer this picture of quiet reflection to start your Monday:
If it's anything like my Monday's going to be, this is the only quiet reflection you're going to get...

Doh! I missed Caturday! This should make up...

Our youngest, Finnegan, thinks that tumbling will open closed doors. Not sure why. This goes on repeatedly without working, but he still keeps at it...

Happy Monday!

I've been quoted

For real. Check it out here. Read the whole thing. You won't be sorry.

Sometimes I'm surprised people even listen to me. Maybe I should talk more.

Monday To Do's

I have a lot to do this week, so this week isn't that much different than any other week, but it feels more oppressive.

Some of my To Do's include:

1. Laundry (this is a permanent fixture on my to do list.)
2. Getting my hair done (if roots were a crime, I'd be calling you for bail.)
3. Copy edits
4. Putting the final touches on my Worldbuilding Workshop (I'll be giving this twice in the next two weeks, so it better be good. I hope.)
5. Getting my Etsy jewelry shop stocked and reopened for business. (My itch to make jewelry is strong and I have some FABULOUS raw materials to work with, so this is more like a reward than a to do.)

What's on your list this week?

Dinner will be a little late this evening.

It's been a year since I blogged

Not counting Caturday, of course. Mostly it's been because I've been working, but there have been a host of other things going on in my life these past few months. Stuff that has made my time precious.

Now that we've begun a new year and life has calmed somewhat, I really want to get back to blogging. I enjoy it. I really do. So, this is a start of sorts.

What's new with me? I got a bike for Christmas. No, I'm not 12, but I didn't have one and now I do. Hotrod got one too, so now we go out for rides together. Of course his bike is black and yellow and looks like a transformer. Mine is purple and has a basket large enough to hold several kittens. Not that I've put kittens in there. (Thinking about something and doing it are two very different things.)

In other book-related news, I should have covers for my Orbit books to share soon. I hope. I want to see them desperately.

My plate is still full writing-wise. There is always something to work on, isn't there? Anyway, what's new with you? Fill me in on all I've missed.

Jack wonders if real vampires have this much trouble keeping their coffins closed.
