New Year’s Eve, 2017, Woodstock New Brunswick. A foot of fresh snow on the ground and still falling, -26C and dropping (this will be relevant soon). About 4PM. My mother, stepfather, my husband, and I are starting to get ready to go out. Nothing fancy, my mom is 82. But a nice dinner, followed by Royal Canadian Read more…


Sometimes it happens a lot. Explodes kinda. I recently found out I’m becoming a godmother! I’ll try to be the nice one, not the one who curses the whole castle.  No promises.  🙂 We’ve been to 2 out of 3 baby showers, being the first grandchild in both the mom and pop-to-be’s families, everybody wanted to celebrate.

The next few weeks, or months, will be crazy busy around here.  That probably means my 2x a week blogging schedule will get even more screwed up than usual. Thursday, I’m in town until 9pm for a writers group. Friday we leave for Ad Astra.  Get home Sunday late at night, and I should go to a Read more…


It’s been ages since I posted, I’ve been crazy busy, and the world has just gone crazy. After my mom’s wedding a little less than a month ago, I worked a book fair, dealt with pain levels that would make a grown man sob hysterically, attended two milestone birthday parties, started a garden, had three doctor appointments, Read more…


So, it’s been long two weeks.  Maybe a long month, I’ve lost track. I went to New Brunswick on May 8th to help my mom with the last preparations for her wedding, meeting her groom for the first time. Eh, he’s OK, better treat her right, I know what he looks like now.   This is the Read more…


Tomorrow morning bright and early, we leave on a ten hour drive to my Mom’s to help with her wedding.  It’s both stressful (Mom reports turning into a 16 yo bridezilla) and incredibly cute. So, I spent all day yesterday packing for a 2 week trip, and was supposed to spend today getting the house ready to Read more…


I entered a short story contest put on by Radish a few weeks ago. Radish is an online story sharing app, kind of a pro-level Wattpad. Except that it just goes to Mac Apple products for now. (They are working on an Android app) I entered a short story based in my world for Nets to Catch Read more…


Well, so far today. Major pain from being in town yesterday. I had a Dr appt, where she doubled my morphine dose (that’s always a good sign, right?), told me the xrays of my back revealed “significant erosion” from L5 to L3, and there wasn’t enough healthy bone left to try to operate to fix the degenerating Read more…


8000 steps yesterday, and every one hurt. I’m supposed to do 1500-2000 steps a day. I did 4-5 X that much. Owie! But I’m back, almost in one piece, and eager to get editing my fantasy epic.  April is Camp Nano, and I’ve chosen to edit my book so that it makes sense, tighten it by about Read more…


Today I am starting to organize myself for the Beltaine Craft fair on April 23rd.  Yes, that’s a long ways away, and yes, I do need to start this early. Part of it is my chronic pain making the necessary bending and lifting almost impossible, and part of it is my #mybrainisajerk syndrome.  It works like this, Read more…
