Time to celebrate the small things. This is a bloghop.
     Well hello all. Busy here still trying to finish up chores. Busy busy. Today I want to celebrate black bears. Poor things, they are so beautiful (just not on my back porch!). Today one of the marauding babies was dead on side of road, hit by car. So sad. So today I want to celebrate them.
     So much to do and think about now. I hope all is well out there in Blogland. Blessings.

Time to celebrate the small things. This is a bloghop.
     Hello all, I am back again- okay, so I am a day late!! I honestly thought about writing a post yesterday but yes, I am still battling with cutting this overgrown grass. I have an old weedwhacker that only holds a 10 minute charge at a time (for which it takes hours to charge). Yeah, try that on 2 acres... BUT I want to celebrate that at least I am getting somewhere with it! Also I want to celebrate that I have most of my cuttings in the ground now, except for the few that haven't rooted yet... I have the houseplants brought in for the winter...
     I want to celebrate Autumn, too. How beautiful it is. The cicadas aren't nearly as loud in the woods, just an undertone. The crows are cawing, the sun dapples through the trees- which are losing their color turning leaves. Pretty. I sure love the cooler weather too. But it is starting to freak me out to turn the heat on at night! Allergy pills are my best friends right now...
     I am writing for GothNo still. I didn't prepare as much as I wanted, so I took a few days off to work on character sheets,  story line, & just regular brainstorming. Success!
     Anyway, I hope all is well with everyone of you, & that you are in good health (I'm talking to you, Jaileen!!).
     For your entertainment, here is a picture I took of mom's Persian kitty Angel. (I call her Jellybeans). (anGEL = JELLybeans: get it??) I need to give her another haircut , her hair is growing again... She looks fluffy now, but it is nowhere near the monstrous size she will be if it grows out all the way. She is more comfortable with her cut, and looks adorable!
     Happy day all...

(UPDATE: How did it become Sunday? I thought it was only Saturday? Wow, I have been alone too long here. I am 2 days late, I guess. OOPS mybad, ya'll...)

     Well hello there. I seem to have faded away there for awhile. I am pulling myself out of this funkhole I fell into... I have missed a CELEBRATE, and will get back on track here. A lot of changes going on in my life right now.
     I have started GothNoWriMo, after waiting for it for so long... I have dug out my old fav gothy music for atmosphere and find that I still LOVE it: The Cure, Danzig, Ozzy, Blue Oyster Cult, Kate Bush (still love her Wuthering Heights.), Evanescence, Alice in Chains, Fury in the Slaughterhouse. I now realize I need to get more gothy type music. Yes, World, I am still "ME".... (What a relief.)
     The writing is going ok too... I was able to get started this morning, and this is where I want to be. Deep in my own stories, bringing them to life.
     I finally read through the AugNo Anthology, and really enjoyed the stories of my fellow authors in it. Of course, it is a thrill to see my own story right in the middle of it. Does anyone know of any other anthologies I can write for?
     I will try to post better on this blog, and re-join my communities. Everyone needs a vacation now and then.
     HAPPY OCTOBER everyone! My favorite month (besides January).
