Okay, change of plans...

right now it isn't "My Angel" or "Nazon" I'm working on. Instead, I'm writing a short story based in the same world as "Zandia"! And, drum roll please, it will be a free read :-)

I'm thrilled to be delving back into this world and checking out how sexual equality is getting on within the Universe.

I'm loved!

And by the ladies at The Romance Studio [TRS]!

This is actually the first award my blog has received and I am feeling giddy with the joy :-)

Okay, there are a few things I need to do now. They are:

Add the logo of your award to your blog - done.
Add a link to the person who awarded it to you - done.
Nominate at least 7 other blogs - oh dear, only 7?
Add links to those blogs on your blog - only 7?!?
Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs - easy, for 7 :-)

Who have I narrowed the list down to? Well, there were so many, but these blogs feed my need for a diversion all the time:

Selena Illyria

Mandy Roth

JC Wilder - unfortunately I couldn't notify her personally, but if I ever get through to her, then I'll pass on the award.

Pink Chair Diaries

DIK (Desert Island Keepers) - unfortunately I couldn' notify them personally, but if I ever get a chance to speak with one of them, then I'll pass on the award.

It Takes Two

Sex Talk for Wicked Women - unfortunately I couldn' notify them personally, but if I ever get a chance to speak with one of them, then I'll pass on the award.

There, visit all of these and your day will be brighter!

I haven't mentioned this one, but guess what?

"Hephaestus Lays Down the Law" has been revamped, expanded, and submitted to a publisher for a place in an anthology full of gods and goddesses called Love's Immortal Pantheon! Fingers crossed everyone, because this sounds like a fabulous grouping.

What is it about? Love, betrayal, and reuniting.

Who is in it? Hephaestus [of course], Aphrodite, a maenad, a trio of Cyclopes, Hermes, and oh yes, Zeus.

Where does it take place? Ummm, Mount Olympus.

Is there anything special that happens? Yup. Oh, you want me to tell you? Not a chance!

There, a few hints to tempt your reading pleasure. Next up is "My Angel" and then "Nazon".

The singing has finished, now what?

Unfortunately, more talking heads, spouting off their own opinions of who should be in the new cabinet or a staff member. But, with all the positive and negatives floating around, accompanied by images they think supports what they're saying, I thought this simple drawing was more interesting.

Okay, confession time. I used to talk through my US History classes and one teacher's method to get me to stop was a bit unorthodox. He would take the pictures of the presidents and toss them at me, demanding their names. It worked, not me knowing who they were, but stopping my chatter. Now you understand why I don't have an appreciation for the individual presidential portraits. A group one is much more to my liking. Click on the image to see the faces more clearly and see how many you can name.

Anyway, if you know who did this drawing, please let me know, I'd love to give them credit.

What's for dinner?

Okay, playing corporate wife right now and tonight the cutie pulled me out for dinner. Lovely to meet up with a couple of the other wives, but trouble was brewing.

We went to a seafood restaurant and I eat nothing from the sea.

So what did I have?

Well, I made a minimal pretense at the meatloaf, but this was what held all of my attention: the chocolate bag filled with whipped white chocolate and fresh berries.


No, I didn't finish it, not even close, so they boxed it up and I brought it back with me. In fact, I even knicked a fork to help finish it off :-)

This will be shocking to some of you, but...

I have only one thing to say...
