Its one of those titleless, rambling posts because I don’t have a lot to say. Great game between Dallas and Canucks tonight and ‘nucks won, moving on to the second round. Woohoo!! Luongo made some great saves to keep them in the game and I have to say I loved loved loved the two open net goals at the end. Kevin Bieksa might just be my new favorite hockey player, he really impressed me in the first round. Other than hockey, not a lot going on. Got a cute new tank top at costco on Sunday. Thinking I should have picked up two, I gotRead More →

Wide awake right now. Had an upset tummy tonight for awhile. Watched three hockey games (or 2 and a half) tonight. Pittsburgh’s out, kinda sad. Wished Georges could have played more and watching Sidney play for awhile longer would have been nice, but Mike and co. are on to the second round. Calgary beat Detroit to even the series *woohoo!* and Canucks lost to Dallas 🙁 With a win tonight they would have knocked the stars out and moved to the second round. Hoping they do that Saturday. Not a big Stars fan. Toying with two stories right now, I forgot to print a fewRead More →

Some of you might know about the hairpulling bout of writers block I’ve had lately. Its been pretty bad with this ms. Every few chapters the brick wall comes up and I’ve been forced to slam on the brakes. As of Monday afternoon though I’ve ploughed through the brick wall full speed ahead. Kinda easily too. So what changed? MUSIC. I’ve talked before about having soundtracks for each project. I had Golden Years blaring through my earphones when I printed off STTA to go to London a couple years ago. The first draft of this torture was written to a soundtrack. But for editing, revisions,Read More →

Can you tell from the title what I did yesterday? :o) It was finally a little warmer, so I took out a couple window boxes, filled them with dirt and put some of my new bulbs in. Was a little surprised to see them starting to grow already in the plastic bag lol But they’re planted now and if it stays nice hopefully they’ll break through sometime next week. Found the marigold seeds I’d been searching for at Home Depot so grabbed those. Saw some black pansy seeds which I’ll have to go back for. Otherwise, I’m still tired from staying up til 2 toRead More →

Its snowing. If I had a pretty digital camera I’d take a shot out the window for you. And its not the nice dry snow either. Its the wet, sticking type that almost makes you trip when you go outside to check the mail. Almost fell twice, once on the steps and once going over the fence. I’m SO ready for it to be spring. Really. The seeds are sitting near the desk, waiting to be sorted into what’s going into a pot together. Which ones need to be replenished. Which ones I don’t really plan on using this year… but see, for me toRead More →

Raven Callahan doesn’t do it for the money. She does it for the thrills. As a consultant for API, an art recover company, she gets to steal—legally. But when her colleague is kidnapped during an assignment, Raven is forced to steal a priceless master painting to save his life. David “Dax” Maddox was the perfect street cop—until a botched burglary raid cost his partner his life and Dax his ability to see color. Now, with his world gray, Dax has only one mission: to take down the murderer. And he’ll use anyone—even a sexy thief with questionable ethics—to get justice. Soon Dax and Raven areRead More →

So it seems. Friday I felt good enough to get out of the house for awhile. Picked up an easter present for dad, bought some chocolate, couple books (Amanda Quick’s SECOND SIGHT which I’m quickly devouring and Heather Grothaus’ THE CHAMPION) and found a couple t-shirts since most of mine are getting pretty craptacular. Saturday was a blur of nothingness. Didn’t watch the habs game, but ha ha, they’re out. Did watch the Isles game today. Woohoo on them being in the playoffs. Go Smytty Go! And Bergie, and Poti and DiP if he’s back soon. Amazing shootout. So glad for them. They deserve it.Read More →
