April? Are you sure?

I woke up to this…

Car with Snow

 

Yes, that’s snow. It wasn’t even 30 degrees this morning. I had frost on my windshield, but I refused to get out and scrap it off. I guess I asked for it, since I already put away my scraper.  :-? 

What the heck!? At least it’s not the measurable snow that my parents received. Oh, and even better news? We’re supposed to get even more snow to welcome the beginning of May.  *oy vey*

Are you having any better luck with the weather? Oh, wait, maybe I don’t want to know. I’ll be jealous if you tell me it’s 80 and sunny. *pouts*

To do lists....

To Do Lists

Are you a list person? The last month or so I’ve forgone my regular lists and couldn’t figure out why nothing was getting done—hence the lack of regular blog posts. I find if I don’t put what needs to be done on the list, they’re either forgotten…or it’s easy to say I’ll just do it tomorrow. Funny, but that same excuse pops up the next day and the next…well,  you get the drift. I enjoy actually being able to cross things off my lists. It makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something.

 

Another kind of list that I rely on heavily is a shopping list. I would be lost without mine! Sure, I purchase things that aren’t on my list, but not very often. I really try to stick to the list. It keeps me from forgetting things AND it stops me (most of the time) from picking up things that I don’t need.

 

I also have a wish list for my books and a list of movies I want to watch on NetFlix. 

 

How about you? Do you use lists to keep organized?

 

Goals...

I wanted to make a point in celebrating the small things in life, so when I published my tenth book, I decided to buy myself a little something…

 

Penguin

 

I love animal necklaces. This little guy fits right in with the others. Isn’t it gorgeous?

 

Not to be outdone, my husband picked out a small gift for me as well…

Ramsey

We get this little fella tomorrow from a local shelter. My husband picked him out. *squee* I’m soo excited!! 

We’re still struggling to come up with a name. What would you suggest?

 

Where has all the time gone....

Gracious! Has it really been that long since I’ve posted?!

A lot has happened in the last few months. The good news — Electric Night is nearly ready to be published! There has been some production delays, but I’m hoping to release the book soon. Yay!

 

I’ve also decided what book I will write next…think Academy of Assassins. I’m really excited about the idea. Then, if I have enough time, I’m going to try and release a second Raven Investigation book this year. Woohoo!

 

Unfortunately, I recently lost two cats within a month of each other. It’s been hard on me, since I’ve had both cats for fifteen plus years. Remarkably, both of them were over twenty years old, so they’ve lived a full life.

Below was their favorite spot in the house. It’s nice to know they’re probably still sharing a cat bed wherever they are…

Have you read anything good lately? I could use a distraction…
