No, not a whole not going on. I'm down to the last bit of work on Devlin 5, but it has slowed way down on me. I just need to push through the last bit and start getting everything updated and then drop #5 into place and be done with all of this.

Yeah, I'm ready to be done with all of it.

Snow and Fog

march 2, 2019

We had a lovely trip to De Soto Wildlife Refuge today. We didn't see much, but there was snow everywhere and it looked pretty. We caught sight of a few eagles on the way out, so that was good.

We were also, quite literally, the only people in the refuge. We know this because we went up and back the same way and never saw a single person except right at the gate as we were heading in. That was really odd. And nice because we could stop, back up, check things out and not worry about someone racing through. In th spring/summer/fall there are people in a hurry to get to the lake to fish and they're really not intereted in seeing a few deer, turkey, or even eagles and hawks.

But that's it for the day. I had a bit of writing done early, so that helped. Now back to work.

Snow, snow

March 3, 2019

Should I be surprised that I'm starting to not feel well? This seems a common theme for my birthday the last few years. I used to think it was because I got too excited about getting ready to go somewhere. But I'm not doing that this year, and I'm still not feeling well.

I hope it doesn't linger around for long. This is annoying


March 4, 2019

Yeah, still feeling lousy. Thank you so much.

I am trying not to be annoyed.

Let it...

March 5, 2019

Okay, fine. If we're going to have bad weather over the weekend, then just bring it on. I'm ready for it.

By ready, I mean I plan never to go farther than the front door to look out, of course.

The first four Devlin novels are all updated! The 5th is ready to go up on my birthday -- so I think I've got this handled. I'm amazed. I didn't think I was going to really get it all done in time.

Feeling better tonight. Still a touch of crud hanging on, but I'm not so absolutely exhausted as I had been for a few days. Dinner didn't entirely agree with me, but I survived it.

So one more day until my birthday. I think there's a good chance I'll survive to see it. LOL

Ah, the night before the big day. The weather is looking really iffy for the whole weekend, so I'm thinking not a trip to anywhere this year -- and that's fine. I'll get some bird food and lure the little beasts to me instead!

We have cupcakes and icecream for tomorrow. We have shows to watch when Russ gets home. I'm thinking all looks well!

Danish Alps State Park

march 8, 2019

Had a lovely evening! It was almost dark when Russ got home, but we still ran out to Danish Alps just to look around. It was a nice little ride. Then we went to our Greek place for a nice simple dinner -- and Russ gave me a pretty ring for my birthday! I LOVE IT!

We went to Lowes and picked up birdfood and a few more things, and then to Best Buy to get a new printer. Home to watch the first of a new course on the Scientific Wonder of Birds and then the next Castle episode.

I started by new sf novel, Retrieval, earlier in the day. Devlin 5 is published (at least on Smashwords -- getting to Amazon tomorrow).

All in all, a really lovely day!
