Happy Halloween

Can you believe it's already Halloween? It just seems like we had a New Year not long ago.

It's been a long week. My sister had a miscarriage last week and then she and my niece contracted the H1N1 virus. I've spent the majority of my time with them, trying to help out whenever I can.

It's sad because my niece wasn't able to go trick or treating tonight. She has the cutest Snow White costume that she looks just like Snow White would look like when she was a toddler. She was dressed in her costume anyway and everyone went to different rooms of the house and closed the door. She would knock on that door and would say "Trick or apples please."
She was given candy by family instead. She still had a blast even though it wasn't door to door, I guess that's an advantage of her being two and not knowing any better.
I haven't had time to do any writing this week. I've had so many new ideas swimming around in my head, but now I just have to find time to get it on my computer!

The picture I am sharing is of my niece in her costume last year. I took some of her this year, but I haven't uploaded it yet. Wasn't she the cutest bee?

Happy Halloween...Eat lots of candy!

I love Autumn

I didn't do what I set out to do today. I should have used my time wisely and worked on my latest book, but instead I ended up doing nothing but watch television, sit outside and go out of my way to irritate my husband. :)
The weather here has been spectacular. Mid 60's which I love, and the leaves are starting to turn into those burnt oranges, yellows and reds that are so mesmerizing to look at. I wish the weather would stay like this. I've never been a summer or winter weather fan. Autumn and Spring are definitely my favorite seasons. I found myself sitting outside enjoying the crisp air and the company of my husband, when I should have been writing. *sigh*
Maybe I'll do better tomorrow.
I can't believe that tomorrow is Sunday! Time always goes so quick when you're having fun! Hopefully everyone else has had a great weekend, too!
I thought I would share a picture of our girl! She loves Autumn, too! The weather is perfect for her to sit outside and watch the world go by.

My First Post

This is the first of many posts I plan on doing. I am determined to be faithful to blogging, although I have to admit I'm not good at keeping a diary or writing in a journal. I have set a goal that I will at least post several times a week, even if it's not much.

I am so excited about my novella being published through Dreamspinner Press. I'm currently working on several different books right now, and I'm anxious to get them written and hopefully published too.
