My new book, Leather Head, is my biggest success yet. It's twisted horror and I scheduled it to come out right before Halloween. I guess that helped because it's my biggest seller yet! Yeah! You can get it on Amazon, an eBook novelette, a quick read. All 5 star reviews so far!

I stumbled upon an AP Maker's Mark bottle.

Do I open it?

Depends, do you think you would ever consider selling it?
If it were me, I would keep it, therefore I would drink it.

Hope that helps!

It really is. The colors and fixtures all fit very well in the house, and it's a lovely property.

Your money sure goes further in Kentucky. Here in SoCal, $1,350,000 might buy you a three bedroom, two bath tract home that maybe has an updated kitchen. Maybe. And a small lot. :P

So not happiness, really, but it makes me laugh.

I got called into the director's office at my son's daycare (he's 3). Apparently, this last week, he has started darting out doors and running away (all within the confines of the daycare, thankfully, but still). And he tries to hide, too.

Running away is something he thinks is hilarious and we've been trying to get it into his stubborn little head that it's not funny and he could get hurt. He's remorseful for a bit, but then he does it again. Part of it is the prednisone we had him on last week because he's been sick - he's usually pretty even-keeled for a 3 yr old, but the prednisone makes his moods much more intense. There has been so much crying in our house lately. Here's hoping that it wears off and he returns to being our silly, sunny little dude.

But geez, 3 yrs old and I'm already having meetings with the principal. :lol:

It's 27 degrees right now, but thawing temperatures arrive at noon and stay throughout the afternoon - or so says the weather report. Maybe we'll be able to navigate out of our 150' driveway. I've been stuck in the house for too many days. When I finally get out, I'm probably going to point at everything and giggle.

It was 18 when I got in my car this morning and the first time in days that a gust of wind hasn't made my skin burn! It's looking up... 41 tomorrow!!

My sister bought me a diffuser for Christmas and honestly, best gift ever. She got me some allergy relief/breathe easy blend and I don't feel like crap too much anymore.

Way better than pills.

I've heard some good things about essential oils/diffusers from a friend who uses them.
I also know that many essential oils, like eucalyptus, are toxic to cats and/or dogs. :(

I just bought a bunch of new watercolors. :D :D :D :D :D I got a book called Everyday Watercolor because I've decided I need to properly learn how to paint and I decided I needed the color palette that the author recommended.

Good news from the oncologist today - CT scan and bloodwork came back clean. No sign of a reoccurence of cancer. Don't have to go back until September. Two years down; three to go. Can now plan for trip tp Kentucky in May and spending the summer in TOGA. Doing the happy dance.
