So right now I am working on multiple books for next year. The ones coming out this year are written and in various stages of editing. They go back and forth between editor and myself as changes are made until we are both insane and cannot take it anymore. In between those I write for next year. I have a bunch of stand alones for next year, as well as a couple of wrap ups and epilogue stories for series I am currently releasing.
Now on to antics. Lately heat wave after heat wave has been hitting us and in Vermont weather is not usually so intense...until winter I mean. So we do not all have A.C. and when the heat waves first hit I did 2 things. 1. order a portable A.C. (it has saved our lives because otherwise I would have melted). 2. taken naps to get rid of the headaches that ensue from the temperature being 30 degrees higher than normal.
Well my cat Diana likes to nap on top of me. And luckily she is the lighter of the 2 (same litter but Diana is 10lbs or muscle because she always plays and Freya who is 20lbs of lazy cat that only knows how to snuggle up against your leg and sleep). Anyway I tried to get up from said nap to hydrate and she stood up on my chest, pushed the blanket back over my shoulders and neck, laid down and purred at me. The sound was happy and relaxing but the face was like nope we staying right here mommy. My hubby heard me rustling and came in the room in time to see it. He laughed. So hard he had to sit on the bed or fall over.
That did not deter here. Every time I tried to push the blankets off me or down she would use her paws to stop them and dead weight herself. So we know for sure she is a mama's girl (she has determined I am for snuggles and the child is for play). A picture was not got, mostly because I couldn't move without squishing her and my husband was laughing to hard and picking on me to bother with a camera. But I will post a cute kitty pic anyway so you can see my snuggle bug.
P.S. Diana also likes to become a stuffed animal on my son's platform bed and steal the hubby's desk chair after she is told not to.
Next time I will show you the expanse that is her sister. She is a big love bug but she only loves me. Everyone else is tolerated. Until you pet her around the ears. Then Freya loves you lol.
Hope everyone is handling our new version of life good. If not hang in there and many mental hugs!

I love to write. In my spare time I nerd out on manga and anime. I read...a lot. When I am pried away from that I like photography (by that I mean a digital camera that I use to document my family's life obsessively). I also like nature. I am told I am like a puppy because if I do not get my daily walk outside I am unbearable to be around.
