Happy Monday, April 16, 2018, to everyone. Hopefully y'all living in the States have already filed your US tax returns and can breathe a sigh of relief now that that's done. If so, enjoy the rest of your week.

Another week has gone by, with our Texas low temperatures at around thirty-four degrees several times (not all that odd for the first part of April), along with tornado sirens one day. We escaped that event thankfully.

Looking forward to nicer spring weather in the coming days.

Have a great one!

Only eight more days until March 20, 2018, the official first day of spring. I'm a Deep South gal, so I love my Texas springs and summers.

Have a good week, everyone.

My heart and prayers go out to those lost and loved ones left behind in the recent Florida school massacre. How could eighteen events such as this have occurred in the US just in these initial weeks of 2018? This has got to stop. And it may be due to various things, like guns too easily purchased, mental illness and/or unchecked mental illness, lack of metal detectors at our schools (which is such a sad statement right there). Disturbing statistics can be found that report more suicides are among our teens than other age groups. Does this link up here?

OR, like with the #MeToo campaign, where women have been coming forth and speaking up about sexual harassment, we need to do that BEFOREHAND to locate these disturbed individuals so they don't kill even one person.

AND, with all the social media fans out there, why aren't there enough eyes on these posts that foreshadow such atrocities?

MAYBE it's more about enough mouths to go with those eyes. We need more whistle-blowers.

Speak up. Save a life.

God bless us and protect us all.

We had another night dipping below freezing here in the DFW Metroplex. I hope that's the last of it. I'm a Deep South gal who loves her sunshine and eighty-degree days. But I've been having some vivid dreams that I pray are not related to the chill. The first one was repeated over and over for several nights (still continues to pop up), a contemporary who-dun-it, but last night was a Pride and Prejudice remake with unknown actors that jumped to a knock-off of The Little Rascals with a female lead playing Alfalfa.

Weird, I know, but I love it when my creative side takes over. Plus I dream in color. Which makes it all more vivid.

The first dream I've written down and have twelve pages and not quite 4,500 WC. The latest dream has nothing to do with that story, and I'm still considering what it is I'm supposed to gain from that one. Except for an urge to watch old movies. Ha! But I've got work to do first and foremost.

Have a great week, everyone.

Our first Monday of February 2018. Wow. Doesn't seem possible ... I'm awaiting spring in Texas. After two days of really cold weather, I've had plenty of winter. Ha!

Take care, all, and have a great week.

We had lovely seventy-degree weather in Texas on Saturday, which lured me outside to clear some deadwood among my many trees and bushes. It was the best afternoon after too many below-freezing days and nights here throughout January. I'm a summertime gal myself.

Here's to a great week, filled with sunny warm days.

I love my job! I get to basically read all day long. When I'm not copyediting my own writing or another author's creation, I'm reading for the pure pleasure of it or to learn more about the craft, whether fiction or nonfiction. I love finding out what works in books that keep me reading through the night.

I wish such joy for everyone who earns a living.

Have a great week!

On the work front, I remain busy (thank you to the wonderful authors I work with!). I'm also reading, bit by bit, through the 17CMS (released 09.05.2017) updates/changes from the previous 16CMS edition to remain current on the newest grammar rules for fiction and nonfiction US authors.

On the home front, I had three nights of below-freezing temperatures here in the DFW Metroplex. Quite a change from our sweaterless weather from days before. And I even worked in my backyard one morning for thirty minutes to remove deadwood from one tree. I have plenty more to attend to.

Hope everyone has a great week.

I love this time of year with all the holidays. It just makes everything ... better. People seem nicer too. I wish we could have this heightened feeling of love toward our fellow man all year long.

Here's to a great week!

To my fellow Americans, here's to a happy and safe Thanksgiving this week.

My thoughts and prayers continue to go to Sutherland Springs, Texas. What a horrific event, caused by one seemingly psychotic individual. In a perfect world, we would all effectively self-police, each person doing the right thing. However, we are not yet capable of that as a whole. In the interim, we need to stand up to abusers and bullies of all kinds, to watch over people who need extra eyes on them, to send them to get professional help when they otherwise fall through the cracks of the system.

God bless us and keep us.

Happy November, everyone! This month kicks off many holidays: Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's, and others. Hope you and yours have a wonderful season.

Is it Monday already? Every day is a Saturday to me as a freelancer who loves what she does. So, yes. Sometimes I don't know what day of the week it is. But that's a good thing from where I sit.

Have a great week, all.
