Monday Musings: A Bit of This, A Dash of That

Nothing really major to report. The world is moving along, the days are longer, and we are having some very Spring-like weather. I have some garden plants starting in the basement on the new heat mats. They seem to be doing their job. It's been about a week and I have a few seedlings poking … Continue reading Monday Musings: A Bit of This, A Dash of That

Monday Musings: Writing Updates

It's February, isn't it? January seemed to disappear, especially on the writing front. I got very little done in the past month. It's been hard to get going again. I can't seem to get back into a writing routine. "Ah, yes," they say, nodding knowingly. "Writer's block. Happens to everyone." Well, no. If you have … Continue reading Monday Musings: Writing Updates

Monday Musings: Okay, Okay, I Give Up!

Last week, we got around 14 or so inches of snow. Roads were cleared quickly and after a day or so, things settled back to normal. Some ice and snow melting off the rooftops, and it's been cold. Tomorrow, we are supposed to get another snowstorm with significant accumulation. You know what? I give up, Winter. … Continue reading Monday Musings: Okay, Okay, I Give Up!

Tuesday Thoughts: NaNoWriMo and the rest of November

I am woefully behind, to the tune of over 2200 words! But that is mainly because our family Thanksgiving was last week, so that meant the usual no progress for a few days. So that means this week will be dedicated to catching up. Which I am sure I will be able to do. *fingers … Continue reading Tuesday Thoughts: NaNoWriMo and the rest of November

Monday Musings: Mid-April and Things Are Moving Along-

Maybe too fast! Too weeks from last Saturday, we are cooking chili again! Yes, that's right- ChiliCats and Rock'N'Roll Chili will be represented at the New England Regional Chili Cook Off at Pleasant View Golf Center in Somers, CT on May 6. This is a big cook off, with somewhere on the order of 50 … Continue reading Monday Musings: Mid-April and Things Are Moving Along-

Monday Musings: Streaming Music, Title Woes, Writing Updates, and A Bit of Weather

We've been playing around with streaming music services lately, mostly Spotify and Pandora. It's been fun. I've been listening to stuff I never would have otherwise, and have found some things I like that I probably wouldn't have if it meant picking up a whole CD. That's always been an issue for me and music … Continue reading Monday Musings: Streaming Music, Title Woes, Writing Updates, and A Bit of Weather

Monday Musings: Winter is Back. Oh, Boy, Is It Ever! and Writing Updates

I have heard a lot of people remarking on the lack of snow so far this winter. Glad that we have really not had a lot, and that it has been a fairly easy winter so far. I blame you. Every single one of you. Because Old Man Winter? He heard you, loud and clear. … Continue reading Monday Musings: Winter is Back. Oh, Boy, Is It Ever! and Writing Updates

Monday Musings: Stuff and Nonsense

We added a wreath on the door to our Christmas decorations this year. We'd looked at some earlier, but anything that was more than a couple pine cones stuck into the side and one of those red-flocked bows was really, really pricey. I knew I could make one cheaper. We got a really good deal … Continue reading Monday Musings: Stuff and Nonsense

Monday Musings: A Short Comment on the Hugo Awards, Writing Update, Off to Maine, and Summer Heat

I'm not going to comment a lot on this year's Hugo awards, mainly because I haven't read all of the winners, and can't say if I thought they were good enough to win. I am happy, however, to see that, once again, the Puppies were shut out in most categories. And in at least one, … Continue reading Monday Musings: A Short Comment on the Hugo Awards, Writing Update, Off to Maine, and Summer Heat

Monday Musings: Mostly Post-Thanksgiving Stuffs

Thanksgiving was, once again this year, at our daughter's house in MA. With the addition of several grandchildren who are well out of the infant seat stage, our dining room is not nearly big enough anymore. We had eleven adults, three children, and one infant. Not to imply that poor Logan is not a child, … Continue reading Monday Musings: Mostly Post-Thanksgiving Stuffs
