Happy Friday, Folks

Happy Friday, folks. I was thinking of changing my header photo since the road is no longer flooded, but with all the rain we've had water started coming in the basement. And it's still coming!

I wanted to draw your attention to the website of Sandra Ardoin who mentioned me in her High Five Friday!! post. Thanks, Sandy. :D

Tomorrow, my post will be a book review on Vickie McDonough's 3rd book in her Texas Boardinghouse Brides series, Finally a Bride. There will be a book discussion going on, but it'll be over on the Inkwell Inspirations blog.

Now that I'm finally back in my office out in the garage, I'll be writing all weekend. The boys can play all the video games they want and I won't hear a thing. Except the rain.

If you look at the header photo, today's picture would've been taken a few feet before the water's edge where the ground was soft and wet. It's the paw print of a coyote and that's my shoe, so those tracks are big! Nelson said he's seen a coyote running through the farmyard. Gives me shivers just thinking of finding him/her out there in the dark while I make the trek from my office to the house. Yowza!

It's Memorial Day weekend in the US. What are your plans?


  1. Glad you're getting some writing time at home.

    I think I need to put up a sign in my gable that says "Retreat Centre" just to remind myself that I really can write at home. After all, I designated the space for that purpose. I'll have to try to dupe myself into thinking I have the special atmosphere of a retreat right here.

    And aren't coyotes more afraid of humans than we are of them? Remember, we're taller.

  2. Hey Carla, yeah a coyote. We hear them yipping close to the yard a lot. Just adds to the western aura. :D

  3. I agree, Hazel. You need to put your writer's cap on and enjoy that retreat of yours. BTW, it sure was nice to see you in Muenster. :)

    Yes, coyotes are supposed to be more afraid of humans. But that's only if you have a fearless human to start with. LOL


Come on, tell me what you think...
