Let It Snow

Monday, Feb 06

After all, it will anyway!
This week’s winners are Barbara Callahan and Sandy.  Congratulations to both of you.  
Each week, two winners are chosen at random from the comments,  Each will be notified by Super Jen, announced on the blog, and presented with autographed copies of my most recent book.  I truly enjoy your comments, and I really hope you will enter.
I’m closing in on the ending of NORTH OF EDEN, and I’m sure glad these characters will appear in SOUTH OF GLORY, the next installment, because I would hate to let them go.  It’s strange how story people become so real to me; I almost feel as though I could call them up on the phone, send them an email, or meet them for lunch.  🙂  When I’m really in the zone, I get absolutely LOST in the story, and I’m often surprised to find I’ve written right on through lunch and on toward supper.
Yesterday, I looked out one of the kitchen windows and there was a bull moose on the other side of the fence.  This is my first sighting of a Bullwinkle type in some time, and I was pleased.  The dogs, who usually bark their heads off at anything they see, were strangely silent.  🙂  As I write this, they are playing their favorite game, chase and growl and pretend to be wolves in the wilderness.  Both of them are bite-size, but they don’t seem to know it.
With Button gone, I’m down to one kitty, Wiki, aka Wikipedia, Wikman, etc.  I have a curious habit of giving any person or pet a whole string of extra names.  My daughter answered to at least 50 of them, from Walnetto to Weniki to her least favorite, Stink-bomb.  She objected to that last one.  Go figure.
Haven’t done any fancy cooking in a while; no time.  I did make yogurt a couple of times, and it was really good.  (Trust me, not all my experiments are edible.)  
I’m listening to Bill Bryson’s book, THE LOST  CONTINENT.  He’s funny and a very good writer, but slightly too snarky to make my keeper list.
What are you reading/listening to?  If you’ve never tried audiobooks, why not give Audible.com a try?  Your first book is free.  And, no, I don’t get anything for saying that.  🙂  Tomorrow is New Book Day, and I can’t wait.
