Missing in Action

Yep, that’s me. Last Monday I decided to paint my kitchen, well, that led to painting the ceiling, which led to painting the dinning room, which led to painting the living room, which led to painting the hallway. I haven’t done the laundry room, yet, I think that’ll be in a few days. All this painting re-energized my muse which is now screaming to get some writing done. Besides, I wrenched my back moving the sofa. Yes, I should have asked DH for help, but he was in the garage and I was on a roll.

Besides painting, we’ve enjoyed overnight company. My mother had another chemo treatment so she spent a few days here, and was great company, as well as a knowledgeable supervisor when it came to paint colors and applications. She worked in a hardware store for years, so she does know her stuff. We also had a fit of giggles while I shaved her head. The doctor said her hair would fall out on day 18 and right on schedule it did. She asked me to get rid of the rest before it fell in her soup. And on Saturday night our oldest granddaughter wanted to have a sleep over. Papa and I enjoyed our day with her yesterday and per her instructions, had supper at KFC and dessert at Dairy Queen before taking her home. Life certainly is good.

Now, that I’ve cleaned up the last paint roller and re-hung the last dead animal (my home décor demonstrates my hubby’s love of hunting) I’m going to spend the rest of the day catching up on emails and getting some of the scenes playing in my head on paper.

Wildcat Bride, The Quinter Brides book 5
has officially hit the coming soon page at the Wild Rose Press Website. Also, if you’re interested, visit here to view some great original pictures of the Civil War Era.

Have a great week, everyone!

That's why I don't paint a room. You end up having to "spruce up" every room to make them match! LOL

Congrats on the early release and life being good!
