So Friday 12/16/16, it took me 4 hours and 15 minutes to drive home from the day job. A trip which normally takes 25 - 30 minutes. Every road I traveled was a complete sheet of ice. It was freaky. I'd never see anything like it. There were so many accidents traffic didn't move most of the time. I never realized how many hills I actually drive until that night. It was treacherous.
Still, I love winter. It snowed on Saturday, less than an inch. I hoped for snow on my birthday (Dec 20) and Christmas. I really miss snow. We don't get it here much--just ice storms. Ugh! Those I can do without.
I made it home safe and sound as well as the rest of my family and we went nowhere all weekend. Nice!!!! At night around 10:30 p.m. or so, I take the dog out front to wander around the front yard since she's stuck inside all day. Sunday night, one of my daughter's friends was staying over and she ran out to her car the same time I was taking the dog out. We were talking coming back inside and I wasn't paying attention so I stepped on the blanket that I usually wear around my shoulders (it was long) and I fell into the house. Yep! I made it home on the terrible roads without incident, and can't walk into my own friggin house without falling....LOL Bruised both wrists and both knees. I didn't sleep well, that's for sure, and it hurt pretty bad.
Anyhoo, I've been MIA on most all social media for a while, and that's going to continue. After Christmas, the plan is to write, and write, and write some more. I'm not going to promote, not going to do much if any social media. I am just going to write. It is my hope/goal to get two books done for release in 2017. It's a bold undertaking for me, but I have so many books going on inside my head that I really need to get more than one every two years written.
I am doing the "The Wonderful World of Audiobooks" Workshop for the Hearts Through History Chapter of Romance Writers of America in May 2017, and will put up a link when I get it from the coordinator.
Hope you all have a wonderful holiday season, whatever that may be for you.
I plan on working on some more book reviews as well. I have a stack, three deep on my bookshelf just waiting for me to write the reviews. I'm a little behind, but hope to get caught up--a bit--over the holidays before I settle in to the writing frenzy.
