Song of the Day: The Mysticâ€™s Dream by Loreena McKennitt
This weekend flew by! I canâ€™t believe itâ€™s Monday already.
The Christmas party on Saturday was wonderful. Lots of good food and delightful company. It was great to sit and chat with fellow members. I had two slices of cheesecake leftover and took them home to Husband â€“ who agreed with the chapter. It was the best one yet. 😎 The new officers of the chapter was announced. I’m officially Treasurer. 😉
On Sunday, I got the tree up â€“ sort of â€“ and started decorating. But I ran out of holiday cheer and got it only about half done. Itâ€™s not naked, at least. And I forgot to get out the lighted wreaths for the front of the house, so Iâ€™ll have to do some search for those. I think they are still up in the attic somewhere. And I SO want some of those lighted reindeer for the front yard (Iâ€™m sorry, honey, but I do!).
This morning started earlier than usual â€“ oh-damn-thirty. :yawn: Had to take Husband to the airport in the frigid air â€“ 29 degrees F here this morning. BRR. Supposed to get REALLY cold this week. Like 20s for the low and 30s-40s for the high. My skin is suffering from the cold weather too. The lotion I have doesnâ€™t seem to be working, so I may need to invest in something else. I donâ€™t know. I have very bad dry patches under my arms (was that TMI?).
In other newsâ€¦
I signed my contract! Itâ€™s in the mail today to Samhain. I spoke with the editor via email this weekend and she gave me a great lead on a new place called Inara Press. I think Iâ€™m going to check them out as well and see about doing something for them.
Iâ€™m so very excited â€“ and a little in shock still â€“ about selling. And this is so stupid â€“ but I canâ€™t wait to see the cover art for the Talk Dirty To Me. :hehe: I have in my head what I want it to look like, but since Iâ€™m still green at this e-publishing stuff, I have no real idea how it works.
I have three deadlines this week at work, plus our annual holiday banquet on Friday afternoon. I guess I better get cracking.
