I apologize for not being around much--this is my busy time, what with the shop, the jewelry making, and everything else. I know you're pining...PINING, I SAY...so I'll try to get up a real blog post soon. I'm also going to *try* to put up a few of the Spirit & Potential magical necklaces on Etsy this weekend, as some of you requested.
In the meanwhile, here are some cute cat pics to hold you over. For those of you caught in the grips of this winter storm, say safe and warm, please!
Magic the Cat likes to stay warm by snuggling up with her mother Minerva.
Samhain stays warm by perching on top of the pellet stove. She spends so much time up there, I bought her a special snuggly seat to go on top. No, my cats are not spoiled--why do you ask?
Seriously...how did it get to be December? Wasn't it just Halloween last week? I am now officially Behind on All The Things.
Well, I'm a little ahead on the Llewellyn book, which is done except for the guest author contributions, and off to my editor for what they call a Vision meeting [which is where they decide A) if it sucks or not and B) then envision how it will end up looking and being marketed--gulp]. But there are all sorts of other writing tasks I should be working on, including follow-up nudges to all the lovely guest authors, and starting to brainstorm the Baba Yaga novella, which is due Jan 15.
But mostly, I am making jewelry to sell at the shop (and maybe put a few pieces up on Etsy, although I'm not sure it is worth the trouble, since I rarely sell...
A very happy Thanksgiving to all my friends, followers, and fans who celebrate. And to my family--Thanksgiving just isn't the same without you. *waves at Mom and Dad*
I am so grateful for all of you.
So big love to y'all from me and the Furball Gang.
As in, I wonder why I still live in Upstate New York...
This is the view out my back door.
I'll admit, it really is beautiful. The snow is so light and fluffy, it almost looks like someone from Hollywood came by and made it.
Of course, it is also a whole fifteen degrees (f) outside, up from the eight degrees it was when I got up. Brrr....
And they're calling for a winter storm to hit pretty much the entire East Coast Tuesday and Wednesday, bringing with it mixtures of freezing rain, sleet, ice, and snow. Thankfully, I don't have to go more than about ten miles away for Thanksgiving dinner at my pal John's house (and Thursday itself is supposed to be okay), but I have lots of friends who are traveling. I worry.
So if you have travel plans for...
It's Feline Friday time again! Since last week's FF got combined with some other things, and you only got one cute kitty picture, I'm going to make up for that this week by overwhelming you with the insanely over-the-top cuteness that is Angus Mac.
All my cats are cute, of course (at least when they're not destroying things or trying to beat the crap out of me, or stealing my food...). But Angus is just adorable. In fact, I am pretty sure he is sneaking adorable pills for breakfast when I'm not looking.
Don't believe me? This was one morning last weekend.
Samhain was not impressed, but he kept me entertained for about a half an hour. (He doesn't usually stay in one place that long...Angus has a very short attention span.)
