Declaring my Independence

Pet-sitting for eldest son went out the window. I’ll mostly be home this weekend, hard at work on major revisions for the first book of my next series. I’m really excited about the new direction this story is taking, so I’m very much looking forward to doing the work.

I’ve decided to declare my independence from social media this weekend. I know I’m mostly a lurker, but there are so many places to lurk, and so many things to see, that it takes up a lot of my time. I’m giving myself, and my eyes, a break for the next three days.

Also, in an event that has been a long time coming, I’ve decided it’s high time to cut beef, pork, all fast food including pizza (SOB!), and those oh-so-convenient writer’s friends frozen meals out of my diet. I have been neglecting my health for years. It’s now or never, my friends, and I have a lot to live for. Up to and including trying to make that delicious looking patriotic sangria up there. ;)

For those of you who celebrate, I hope you have a wonderful Fourth of July!

What’s New ~ The July Edition

fireworksHappy Fourth of July!!!

… in three days. ;)

This coming weekend I’ll be pet-sitting for my son and daughter-in-law while they take the sweet grand-baby to meet relatives in Virginia. I love my grand-puppies and grand-kitty, even though they tend to be a handful. One of the g-puppies is a knucklehead American bulldog, and a major drooler, but I adore him to pieces. The other is a much more clever but uber-fuzzy Siberian Husky who loves her granny just as much as I love her. I’m a cat lady, to be sure, but there’s still nothing quite like doggie snuggles.

So far it looks like Mother Nature is going to be smiling on us here in Northwest Ohio this weekend–sunny and eighty is in the forecast. I’m not sure we could ask for better cookout and fireworks weather than that.

What do you have planned for the holiday weekend?
