Happiness is...

I had a bad day at work. I'm talking nothing goes right, I should have stayed in bed type of bad day. It didn't help that I couldn't get past this block in my story. No relief from that distraction.

I feel much better now. All it took was a cup of jasmine tea, a whole-grain blueberry muffin, and ten minutes with a warm, sleepy kitten.

And now, I think I can get over my block.

Kittens and stuff

That little monster above, Shad or Scaredy Cat, is one of the reasons I've been so busy lately. I'd forgotten what a mess three little kittens (plus a playful momma cat) could make!

Of course, it doesn't help that work is just... crazy. I have Friday off (vet appointments and other errands) so hopefully I can catch up on all the things I've put off.

The first book in my Ashwood saga is halfway done. I can't believe I've gotten this far in it. I still absolutely adore the characters and there's so much I still want to put them through... er, I mean write for them!

Hope everyone out there has a great Wednesday!

This year's camping trip was so much fun!
I hadn't planned on going, but ended up catching a ride with Sharon and Ricky. I'm glad I went!
The river was down and slow, so we didn't rent tubes and do a big float trip. We hung out around camp and played in the water. I got sunburned even though it was overcast - I know, I know, the clouds don't block all the UV rays. Scraped my knees and shins on rocks. Got a cramp so bad I nearly drowned. Drank more beer than I should have. Had. A. Great. Time.

Seriously. If you live in Texas and you haven't camped by the Guadalupe River and floated down it, what have you been doing all this time? Get down there! Right now the nights are cool and the days are warm. The river is great fun. There's a ton to do in and around New Braunfels. You can stay in a tent, a travel trailer, or even rent a cabin at a couple of places. You have no excuses! Get going! Go! Most
