Happy Halloween!

A year ago today, we filled out the paperwork to adopt Yoda!  He'll always be our black Halloween kitty.  My goal is to get him into the same pumpkin we used last year for pictures.  Wish me luck.

Besides that, I'm writing. At least until nightfall when I'll pass out candy!  I also wanted people to know I just sent out all the prizes from my contest.  A new one starts tomorrow!

What are you up to today?

Costumes for Cats

This video brings two thoughts to mind:

1) Life should have a soundtrack. Look how much the music adds to all the costumes. If a soundtrack played through our everyday happenings, we would never miss those important moments. I'm also guessing the murder rate would probably drop, too, as well as violent crime since the music would have us hightailing it out of any iffy situation. Forget about going into any dark place alone. And it would be so much easier to find our one true loves!

2) Humans are insane. I fully admit to spoiling my pets rotten. I'm sure people think I'm a crazy cat woman. My dog is totally pathetic with how much we baby her. But all these costumes specifically designed and manufactured for animals? Total insanity. And yes, I have dressed up my pets, but not to this extent.

I have a rough draft of my book, but I'm at the point I'd like to rewrite it and just kill everyone at the end. Actually if I could kill them at page 140 that would be even better.

Unfortunately, a romance novel must have a happily ever after so a character massacre isn't possible so I'll keep plugging away.

Are you plugging away on anything?

Big Cats and Pumpkins

Who knew big cats loved pumpkins so much? Check out this video...

I wonder if my cats would want to play with small pumpkins. Might be something to try after Halloween!

My bedroom has a row of empty boxes along one side. They are all there for one reason...Yoda. He loves boxes of all shapes and sizes, though the smaller ones seem to be his fave. He'll go from one to another then back again. A lot like the LOLcat above!

Of course, right now he's sound asleep on my TBR pile that's been tipped over on the floor. All those books look uncomfortable to me, but he doesn't seem to mind!

It's hard to believe we've almost had him a year. I need to see if he'll fit inside the same pumpkin bucket. I'd love to compare the pics I put on this blog then to the new ones.

Better get back to writing! My entire schedule has been thrown off lately so I'm not getting work done in the morning the way I like to. I need to get back on track if I'm going to meet my November 15th deadline!

To Be Read...

funny pictures-you picz me next

With a November deadline looming, my reading time becomes a rare commodity. But that doesn't stop my TBR from growing. The kidlets have started adding books to the stack that they want me to read, too. I dream of taking an entire weekend and do nothing, but read. Someday...

Until then I'll gaze at the stack with longing and know I'll get to all the books eventually!

What's in your TBR pile? Anything you can't wait to dive into?

One of those weeks...

This is exactly how I feel right now. I'm still recovering from whatever I had and very sad from my Uncle Guy dying. Sleeping until Friday sounds perfect to me. Well, it would if I wasn't on deadline. I can't afford that much sleep with a manuscript to finish.

How's your week going?

You know you're sick when your kids tell you not to talk, get in bed and bring you meals. The bad news is I've gotten worse and haven't written a word in two days. The good news is hubby will not be going to Singapore on Saturday now.

Any good news, bad news on your end?

When it rains, it pours...

funny pictures-Babies always fall asleep on the way home.

On the way home from my son's soccer practice last night, my youngest daughter fell asleep. She usually falls alseep in the car, but when we arrived home I could tell something was wrong. First, she cared less about the cool Halloween decorations and lights hubby had put up. Second, she started crying when the dog bumped into her. Third, she walked straight upstairs because she was so tired and wanted to go to bed. And it was only a little after eight.

I told her to crawl in my bed. She did. With her fleece jacket on. I had a few things to do around the house, but she did not want to be alone. My oldest said she'd stay in there with her. Meanwhile, my sniffles and sneezing started turning into a full-blown head cold.

When I kissed my little on on the forehead goodnight, I knew she had a fever. I got the thermometer. Yep.

All I could think was why does this always happen when hubby goes away. I knew I've been fighting something for days now keeping it at bay, but I was hoping the kidlets would stay healthy. I think it's time for me to call my mommy!

Hope you're healthy and happy wherever you are!

That pic pretty much sums up how I've been feeling. I just can't get enough sleep!

There's one more week of the contest. I still haven't had time to type in the book list so this week's winner gets a $5 amazon gift certificate. I hope to have those titles all in by the November Contest!

Here's this week's winner:

Here are your random numbers:

Jane is the winner with her comment on my post Couldn't Resist. Jane please send me your email via the contact link above. Thanks!

Next Monday, I'll announce the winner of the week as well as the winner of the $15 amazon gift card so remember to post comments to get entries. No limit to the number of entries, either!

And I apologize for not posting on other people's blogs. My hubby's traveling has totally ramped up. In the next two weeks, he'll only be home 24 hours (and that's over a weekend.) I have very little free time when he's away! And my on-line time always shrinks to the bare minimum!

Hubby got me an iPhone for my birthday in August. Overkill for what I need in a cellphone, but I will admit it's nice to be able to check email when I'm gone all day. The manager of my son's soccer team showed me how to use the Maps app. It came in handy the other night when I'd forgotten directions on my printer.

Any iPhone users out there? I'd love to hear what apps you have. I'm not interested in games. No time for that, even though I'm sure the kidlets would like that. Anything you really like or find useful?

Random Tuesday

My youngest, Rose, wants more pets. She's suggested hamsters and turtles. I said no due to the cats. She then said a fish. I need to show her the lolcat above! I can just imagine Smalls sitting there waiting to have a little snack when I walked away.

So far I'm keeping up with my daily pages on the Sleeping Beauty manuscript. I'm actually five ahead of schedule! Fingers crossed that lasts.

I'm also knee deep in crafting. I'm making materials for my church's faith formation program. It will be a year long effort I fear, but the fruits of my effort will last many years beyond that.

I've been giving a new show, The Event, a try. I love conspiracy shows, thrillers, etc. The first two shows held my attention. Last night's show was pretty much a bust. The plot just keeps going around and around. Very little characterization. Dead people waking up didn't even do it for me. Though I wonder if they'll steal from Invasion and have the Avias passengers be "changed" from their experience. I'll give the show one more week. If it doesn't pick up, I won't be tuning in.

What's going on with you?

There are a couple more weeks left in the contest so please enter! Each comment you make gets you and entry. I pick a weekly winner from those who commented that week. At the end of the contest I'll use all the comments to pick the winner of the gift certificate.

Hope you had a nice weekend. I did.
