(Those of you not in the USA or who are not football fans can skip the first paragraph.) This was kind of a weird weekend. We didn't watch any football on Sunday. It was the Pro Bowl, and honestly, we gave up watching that one a few years ago. It's just a big media foofra … Continue reading Monday Musings: Games, Poke, a Groundhog, Writing, and a Book for You
The Demon's in the Details: The Yo-Yo Files #3 is now available at most e-book retailers. I think it still has to show up on a couple, but the major ones do have it available for purchase today. I have all the info and links that are live now on the book's page. I was happy … Continue reading And It’s Live!
That little break from all the social media stuff was nice, and I enjoyed it. I can't say I didn't miss it, but I think a rest period now and again is a good thing at times. Just dropping back and letting the world go by on its own is a necessary reset. But, as … Continue reading Winter Wednesday
Which isn't surprising as it it still Winter here in the Northeast US. We did have some deceptively warm days and some chilly ones with sun and clear blue skies that were just teasing us, but we are back to gloomy and cloudy with fresh snow. It was just a couple inches, and it's pretty … Continue reading Monday Musings: Hey, It Snowed Last Night
We had snow last week. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised. I live in New England, and it is November. Snow happens. It isn't like it was a full on Nor'easter blizzard. It was maybe six inches, and although it was wet, heavy stuff, the air temperatures stayed high enough that we didn't get any … Continue reading Monday Musings: I Guess It’s Really Winter
Winter by Marissa Meyer My rating: 4 of 5 stars The conclusion to Meyer's re-telling of classic fairy tales in a futuristic setting is loosely based on Snow White. Princess Winter is loved and admired by all the Lunar people. She is beautiful despite the scars on her face, perhaps even more beautiful than her … Continue reading Friday Review: Winter by Marissa Meyer
Not only because it snowed again this morning, and there are still some slow flakes falling. Oh, it wasn't enough to make roads anything more than wet, and it just coated the grass, but it was enough to be annoying. It's April now. Can we please get on with Spring! It is also a strange … Continue reading Monday Musings: It’s a Strange Day
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!
February is my least favorite month. It is pretty much 28 days of gloom and dank. Oh, and the bonus? Every four years we get an extra day of it. Whee. Oh, sure, every so often you get a teaser day. Sun, warm temperatures, and it feels like Spring. But then it's right back to grey, … Continue reading Monday Musings: Good-bye, February. And Good Riddance!
Like most of the area, we had a doozy of a winter storm here yesteday. Snowed pretty much all day, with lots of wind and drifting. The official snow total here is 13.5", but I think we got a bit more up here on the hill. The dog was rather unhappy about the whole affair. … Continue reading Monday Musings: We Got Snow!
