Monday, Monday

Today my fellow author and I talked for three hours! It was wonderful. We talked about my book, why I chose certain things to write about, and how including more things could explain some areas better. It’s all food for thought and it comes at a good time. I have printed the entire book off, and will be able to edit and add to my story in the proper places. It becomes more real, something you can hold in your hand. We talked about her book, too. It was fun to talk about all the possibilities we have.

The rest of the day was interesting. Goldie was not too keen on going outside every time she needed to. She needs to learn a bit more about going potty outside in Nebraska in the winter. I would hate to do it! Holy smokes, can you imagine? The pioneers must have had a very hard time, even though it was all they knew. I have a new appreciation for indoor plumbing and baths after seeing our beautiful pup trying to get the hang of everything. She is doing very well, but today was a tough day.

The Babe has found a great pet store that has the largest selection of bones for chewing on. Rawhide bones are not good for their digestive system. It’s amazing how long they’re occupied with a very large looking hip joint bone.

Goldie is enjoying the bone a lot!

Then when Lexie has it, she can’t be bothered with anything else.

I’m excited about getting back to working on my book. It will be a challenge, but I think I will take 90 days to be thorough with it. It may not take that long, but I’d rather allow a lot of time than not enough.

In between, I can finish the children’s books that are ready for artwork. It will be fun to look for just the right photos or drawings. It will be good to fill in days when I’m not working on the book.

So tomorrow is New Year’s Eve. Do you have plans? We will have dinner and visit with friends at the VFW. Probably be home before the rush home starts. We have no desire to be driving when people are inattentive and possibly impaired. After hearing the report today about the four Gretna girls who were killed last summer, I believe there are a lot of kids out there who drive impaired often. The trick the kids are using is putting Vodka in water bottles. Who would think of checking each kid’s water bottles? They do it at school, on school grounds, and all over. I find it sad. Four lives were lost. And for what? Nothing that will make the world a better place.

If you are planning to go out, please be careful tomorrow. Get a sober driver if you need one. Thank you for reading, I appreciate it a lot. I’ll be here again tomorrow, I hope to see you here, too.
