Welcome to my new followers.  I really appreciate you!
So - I had a dream about one of the characters from my book.  He’s on the other side now since he was murdered in 1985.  I asked my psychic healer about this today and sure enough this individual was waiting to give me a message.  He described a complete scene he wants me to put in my book.  He was also very encouraging and told me he looks over my shoulder while I’m writing it.  I’m about 70K words into the story, with a finish date around summer 2015 - the first draft is almost complete (before revisions) and my writing coach has told me I’m about half done!  I’m filling in the forward now with lots of information to set the time, place, and back story of some of the main characters.
In other news, I was dog-sitting my daughter’s teacup chihuahua and her Yorkshire terrier for 10 days.  I’m not a dog person, so this was a new experience.  They sure demand a lot of care but they are so darn cute!  My cat was pretty mad and hid in the basement the whole time.  She finally came out after 2 days and now the terrier is returning just for the weekend.  Poor kitty! 
It has gotten quite chilly here above the 44th parallel.  I’m back into wool socks and sweaters.  I have so much to do it’s ridiculous.  We are having a human house guest next week for 5 days and I’m hosting a dinner for 17 next Thursday night.  It’s a good thing I got dishes for 18 last year, but I still don’t know where everyone is going to sit.  Also my water glasses are all stained from hard water residue and they look terrible. I hope soaking them in vinegar will clean them.  Plus I don’t have enough wine glasses.  Target here I come. 
I tried a new recipe last week for gluten free biscotti with almonds.  The cookies were delicious.  I’ll definitely make them for the dinner. Plus I have to make a chicken soup, some salads and a bunch of other dishes.  I told you I was busy!
so, be well everyone, and keep those great tumblr posts coming

"The only people I would care to be with now are artists and people who have suffered: those who know what beauty is, and those who know what sorrow is: nobody else interests me."

Oscar Wilde
