anxiously awaiting

It's not that I'm a hurricane junkie or anything like that. But Ernesto is coming my way and I'm looking forward to it. Because of the rain. I can't remember the last rainy day we had.

There's something about hearing the rain pounding on the roof and knowing that I'm safe and dry that gives me a great feeling of contentment. I love hearing thunder rumble off in the distance and knowing that a storm is coming. I also enjoy rainy mornings, but only if I don't have to get up early.

And rainy Sunday afternoons. There's nothing like watching a football game on TV while it pours outside.

I guess I've just been missing the rain. It's not like I want it to rain every day. But I am looking forward to the next few days of rain. And hopefully some cooler weather.

I'm back

At last I feel like life is back to normal or as normal as it can be after the wild summer we've had. As previously mentioned we moved into a new house (don't ask about the move)

I'm planting flowers tomorrow.
And this is my favorite part. I call him Rufus. He lives over my stove. He was my one extravagance when deciding what to put in the house.

So we have a gorgeous view of Pilot Mountain and I have three windows in my office. I'll post pictures of that as soon as I get the boxes unpacked. Which will happen as soon as I get Phoenix and the next book done.

Don't hold your breath!

I have been blogflogged. My friend Alesia Holliday pointed out to me that I have not posted in two months. And she is right, I haven't. But there has been so much going on.
But I promise to bring everyone up to date with all the news.

The first being my brand new web site. I'm excited about it because I did it myself. I still have a few kinks to work out, like the mailing list issues but I feel at least now like I know what I'm doing. Please pay it a visit at and let me know what you think.

More updates and pictures will be coming soon.
