Happy New Year!

I’m a few days late in posting my best wishes for 2023, and a lot late on updating the blog.

I took some time off from blogging to deal with some family stuff the last 6 weeks or so. Things are, hopefully, calming back down and getting to a place where I can focus on writing again.

Writing and everything book related has been on the back burner for more than just the last few months for me. I had some major changes in my life take place over the last two years that made writing damn near impossible because not only was my head not in the right place, there was simply too much going on in my life to have time or room for writing.

My major goal for 2023 is to get back to writing. I don’t know what exactly, as I have half a dozen starts and half-finished projects tucked away on my computer somewhere, but I am determined to get back into the habit of writing something. Hopefully that will mean a new book eventually, but I’m not at a point where I can make any definitive plans.

Life certainly brings the unexpected, but that’s just inspiration for more stories, right?

I hope all my readers are having a great start to the new year and I send all the positivity I can to everyone with hopes that whatever goals you set for yourself this year will come to fruition and you’ll be happy and healthy on the journey.

Snow Day!!

This was actually from last week, but I still wanted to share our snow day fun.

The kids had a great time with their cousins trying to build snow forts out of the super powdery snow that didn’t really stick together at all. The walls only made it about a foot tall and the snowballs they tried to make didn’t really stick together, but they still had fun anyway.

The forts and snowballs may not have panned out exactly like the had hoped, but there were still plenty of snow angels, snow throwing, and running around despite the freezing cold!

Our puppy, Finn, had a good time romping around in the white stuff even though he didn’t really seem to know what the heck was going on. Poor little guy doesn’t have much to speak of as far as a winter coat goes, so it didn’t take too long before he was shivering to death and whining even though he wanted to keep playing.

I hope everyone is off to a great start in the new year. Here’s to lots of fun and good times this year!
