Update to the update...

Still no internet at the new house.  I'd chosen a provider, got everything (I thought) set up but turns out the person who took my order didn't know what they were doing and the other two people I talked to were just about as clueless.  So, I told them to cancel my order and that I'd find another provider.  Thankfully, there are several options in town here.  I'm not sure when I'll be online from my home, I hope by the middle of January but won't hold my breath.  Until then, I'll be hanging out at wifi hot spots.  :-)

I'm still enjoying new home and living in town.  The weather has been crazy...summer one day, winter the next...then kinda springlike.  Never boring.

I do have some writing news to share so check back soon.

It seems like forever since I posted anything here and I really miss it.  Not only have the holidays been a distraction but we moved.  We found our new place on Tuesday, started moving on Wednesday and finished up on Saturday.  We moved 11 years of stuff for 5 people.  Talk about work!  And while I dislike the moving process, I love being moved.  Or will once I get everything unpacked and put away. :-)  And we get internet at the new place.  (I'm using wifi in Chick-fil-a now.)

Because of the holidays, things will be quiet here until the first of the year.  Then, I'll start posting on a regular basis again.  And while I don't have all the details yet, and some I can't announce, the new year is going to be great here.  There will be interviews, contests, reviews and lots of other cool stuff so check back on the first or second of January to find out what's happening. 

So, if I don't get a chance to tell you closer to the day, have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  May your holiday season be joyous, filled with good things and plenty of chocolate.

Monday Mug Shot

This is actually my daughter's mug but since I have no holiday themed mug of my own, this one will have to do. 

I'm not sure when she got this but it's been around for several years. It's larger than the normal mug which is especially nice for hot cocoa on a winter morning.

 I'm not sure just what started the penguin thing years and years ago but  she has several penguin items.  And speaking of penguins, we both love The Penguins of Madagascar.  I have a hard time deciding if Skipper or Rico is my favorite, or maybe it's  Private.
