Bless her heart, the swapper of yesterday’s blog changed her mind when she received the replacement ATC I sent her, and raised my rating. YES!
What I’m writing: A CREED IN STONE CREEK, first of the new Creed series, which will come out in 2011. I’m rolling now, and having great fun in the process. Mostly, this is because I feel so much better physically–I hit a rocky patch there for a while, with the flu. Just finishing up the antibiotics and getting stronger every day.
What I’m (not) eating: I promised I wouldn’t bore you with the diet–not with mine, anyway. Sadie-beagle has worked hard to attain her svelte 29 pounds, and I have to brag on her now and then. HOWEVER, I’m too excited not to tell you that I lost a whopping 8.1 pounds in the first week. Needless to say, I’m one happy cowgirl, and motivated to keep on keeping on. Gotta be back in those little jeans by December, when the big rodeo in Vegas rolls around.
What I’m not smoking: Cigarettes. (Or anything else.) It’s been over a year now. I recently went back on the patch, because I suddenly got that just-quit feeling, and I was afraid I would take up the habit again. The patch works wonders. (I include this detail just in case some of you are wrestling with a similar problem. DON’T light up. That’s like being let out of prison and then going back in your cell and shutting the door.)
A note from my stepmother prompted me to say that Traveler, my little pinto, is fine now. He was under the weather last week, but he’s back to normal. The only thing we can figure out is that one of the other horses must have kicked him a good one, in the head no less, because that’s the only mark we found. But don’t worry that he’s being bullied by the herd, because he isn’t. He’s the mischiefmaker in the outfit, and sometimes the others get tired of being pestered.
What I’m reading/listening to: “The Shadow Effect”, by Depak Chopra, Marianne Williamson and Debby Ford. This audio presentation is extremely interesting, and I think I’ll listen to it again.
And that’s the news from the Triple L on this fine but not so sunny morning.
