The Book is Done!

At last, “At Home in Stone Creek” is finished. My feelings are bittersweet–on the one hand, I’m relieved. Now I can move on to the next trilogy, The Texas McKettricks. On the other, there is some letting-go involved here, as I always become very attached to my characters in the process of shaping a book.

I’m looking forward to relaxing over the weekend; doing some art, reading, and revving down a little. :)

Sadie has swimming today–she’s only about 4 pounds from her weight goal, and she’s learning to walk on a treadmill. Now, to get MYSELF exercising. :) (My counselor suggests that I might consider taking as good care of myself as I do my dogs and horses.)

As I write this, one of my cats, ChaCha, is sitting in a cardboard box a few feet away, surveying the world. What is it with cats and boxes and bags? I took the cutest picture of her yesterday, sitting in a multi-colored basket. (The basket is part of my ongoing and as yet fruitless effort to Get Organized.)

Most people, I am told, want to keep their pets off the furniture. I buy steps for mine. There is a set next to the bed, and I just ordered two more, one for the studio, so they can get up into the windowseat, and one for the office, for four-legged couch potatoes. Right this moment, Bernice is behind me, snuggled up in a dog bed, and Sadie just came in from the yard. I think she’s still deciding whether to climb the stairs or stay down here.

Yes, I definitely want to relax this weekend. Whether I actually will or not remains to be seen. :) I have a tendency to get spur of the moment ideas and go with them; call me unpredictable!

Make it a good weekend. You can focus on your blessings, or on those challenges that seem so impossible, but really aren’t. The choice is yours.
