Still At It

I am still at it, cranking away on my next book, which I had hoped to get out by the end of the month. In the last couple of days, I wrote three more chapters numbering between 2,500 and 3,000 words each, which puts me about at the three-quarter mark for the story. I’m hoping to be able to wrap it up by next weekend, though I’m not sure about that because we have medical appointments on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of this coming week.

Tuesday is just lab work in the morning, so that shouldn’t be too bad. But Wednesday, I have an appointment in Orlando with the doctor who did my RF nerve ablations, and Terry has an appointment on Thursday with her eye doctor in Titusville. She’s reached that stage where it may be time to consider cataract surgery. She’ll know more about that after the appointment.

While I’ve been working on the book, Terry has been catching up on all the paperwork that accumulated during our trip out west and keeping track of current things. Our accountant always loves working on our files because Terry is so meticulous about things like that and can account for every penny spent and has the receipts for everything we do.

Of course, no matter what she does, she still finds time to make wonderful meals in the kitchen. Saturday, she made this delicious ham and Swiss braid, which is a kind of folded bread with cheese, ham, salami, and some other meats inside of it. And she made so much that we’ve got leftovers for tonight!

We did take a break yesterday afternoon to go to Crabby’s Seafood in New Smyrna Beach with our friends Jesse and Jennifer. This beachfront restaurant is always popular, and we’ve never had a bad meal there. We were seated at a table right by a wall that is all windows overlooking the beach and all the activity coming and going. Good food with good friends and a good view. What more could you ask for?

I’ll be back at it again today, and I hope to get at least two more chapters done, maybe three. As they say, the end is near!

And finally, here’s a chuckle to start your day from the collection of funny signs we see in our travels and that our readers share with us.

Congratulations Tom Lemcool, winner of our drawing for an audiobook of More Than Human by my friend Heather Ashbury. It’s a blend of fantasy and paranormal romance that begins when a young woman returns to an enchanting town in New Mexico following a mysterious death, where she is unexpectedly pulled into the mystical world of gods, demons, werewolves, nymphs, and more.

We had 19 entries this time around. Stay tuned, a new contest starts soon. Note: Due to the high shipping cost of printed books and Amazon restrictions on e-books to foreign countries, only entries with US addresses and e-mail addresses are allowed.

  1. I had cataract surgery on both eyes over the past couple of years and it was fantastic! If Terry is close to needing it, tell her to go right ahead, she won’t regret it.

  2. Go for that cataract surgery. Both Jerry and I had it done a few years back. No problem, no sweat. And I want Terry’s braid recipe! Sounds wonderful.
