Night Blog

Today was a good writing day–which is why I waited until tonight to write this blog.  :)

The renovations continue to be challenging.  The hot/cold handles for my bathtub arrived, and they fit.  HOWEVER, the sprayer and the faucet do not, and must be returned, exchanged, etc.


Our weather is very spring-like–patches of sunshine, but mostly rain.  The daffodils seem to love it, and the tulips are about to open, too.  YES.  The horses are still spending nights in their cozy stalls, but I can tell they’re ready to stay outside, 24/7.  Except for Buck, who has been known to put himself away in whatever stall appeals to him at the time, my hayburners love to be out.  

I’ve downloaded some new books to listen to on my iPod–“A Change in Altitude”, by Anita Shreve, “The Good Daughters”, by Joyce Maynard, “In the Name of Love”, by Ann Rule (my absolute favorite true-crime writer), “Married to a Stranger” and “Sisters” by Patricia MacDonald (I wait and wait for her books to be released), “Starting Now: A Blossom Street Novel”, by my good friend, Debbie Macomber, and “Unsinkable: A Memoir”, by Debbie Reynolds.  Lots of good listening ahead for me–I have to force myself to turn off the iPod at a reasonable hour; otherwise, I tend to listen until the sun comes up.  :)

More writing tomorrow; I’m starting early.  The next blog will probably be posted in the evening, like this one.

See you then.

    Happy writing!

    That’s too bad about your bathroom renovations. It seems like there is always something going wrong when you want everything to go right.

    We got up to around 83 at one time today, with plenty of sunshine, but tomorrow, it may be thunder showers/storms. I don’t mind the showers, but do not like the storm part.

    It is still in the high 70’s right now at nearly 10 PM.

    You know how you wait and wait for Patricia MacDonald’s books, that is how we wait for yours. I am now listening to your Stoney Creek Christmas. Please let us know when to expect your next book. Thanks for your daily blogs. I do look forward to them. I also follow Catherine Coulter and Suzanne Brockmann, 2 of the authors I also eagerly await their new works. Thanks again for all of your work.

    You wrote this blog and night and I am reading it the next morning…
    Sorry for the problem you are having with your taps. Eventually you will be finished, or are we ever really finished when it come to our homes..
    You have some great books downloaded. I have Debbie Macomber new book on hold at the library. Can’t wait to read it and I saw Debbie Reynolds on The View last week talking about her new book. I once saw her in Las Vegas.. She is quite the lady..
    Have a good day.

    Hey Linda! I’m so glad to hear you had an awesome writing day, and I would rather have a night blog than no blog at all! :lol: Also I LOVE LOVE LOVE the new cover for Big Sky Summer and can’t wait till it comes out. I must say i am on the 3rd book of the Corbin Series “Memory’s Embrace” and I have to say it keeps me on the edge of my seat a little more than the others. That Emma will lie! Anyways I know your books and characters are very dear to your heart but i was thinking for the next contest or your next series of books i wonder if we could suggest names of the characters and whoever wins we will see the name in the book??? That would be awesome to know u named the star cowboy hunk!! lol I hope everyone has a wonderful day. It’s cold and rainy again here in Louisiana.

    Linda, i am sorry you are having so much problems getting you tube working as the old saying goes everything will come out in the wash. So do you have the auto books for your ipod? Hope everyone has a rest of the week and weekend. God bless each and everyone.
    As always your friend,
