Another one bites the dust!
Monday, August 31st, 2020

Another month, that is. Four more months until the end of 2020! And it can’t happen fast enough, because I’m convinced this year is cursed.

I lost my mom, COVID hit, self-isolation began, killer hornets invaded, protests in the midst of isolation began, school began online, twin hurricanes threatened the coast… What’s next?!

Oh yeah, an election looms. So, the worst is yet to come, I’m sure. Be looking for more apocalyptic signs—the Kardashians will give away half their fortunes to fund food banks, locusts will swarm the midwest before harvests, a killer arctic storm will push south to freeze-dry everything in its path, and we’ll be streaming across the Rio Grande to safety… Oh yeah, that movie’s already been made.

Just streaming thoughts, y’all. September will see the start of Fall. I’m ready for it. I love sweaters and fuzzy socks. I’ll miss the pool, but I’m happy the year’s almost over because it’s been hellacious, right?

August is done. The one bright spot for me was the release of Cage, the first of my Montana Bounty Hunters: Dead Horse, MT series.


I finished off multiple editing jobs, as well. Created a bunch of little paintings. One little crochet project.

But what’s ahead for September?

I’m hoping to finish Lawless and the last of the With His SEAL Team stories.

Lawless Stepbrothers Stepping Out: With His SEAL Team 6

I hope to have Lawless complete by the end of the month, although I gave myself some wiggle room when I set up the pre-order. The SEAL team shorty should be out mid-month, so be watching for it!

I’m planning on taking several online art classes this month, so I’ll be posting pics on FB and Instagram—it keeps me motivated to produce. I’m also going to be making headband/ear warmers for the girls so they’ll be ready for cold weather. So, plenty to keep me busy while I’m writing, helping kids with online assignments, etc. It will be a busy fall. 🙂

And that’s it for my update. Hope I didn’t bore you too much with my August recap and look into September! I’d love to hear what apocalyptic signs you would add to my list as well as hear about any goals you’ve set for yourselves!

    Wow, you are one busy lady. I haven’t done half the things you are doing. I too will miss the pool because I’m not a winter person. 70 in the spring is warm and wearing shorts after coming out of the freeze. Fall at 70 is cold and back to capris and long pants after the 100 degree days. Then it’s the wait to see if the snow is going to dump in the valley or just stay to the mountains. Snow is not my thing but have been living with it most of my life. Can’t wait for life to get back to normal. Still haven’t been to a grocery store and just had a pick up of cat litter yesterday so I didn’t have to go into that store either. Still trying to keep mom well and somewhat happy. My son and nephew has birthdays today to say goodby to August. We’ve had 5 birthdays since the 24th. Used to keep us busy with all of the parties but we haven’t done that in a while.

    Hope your September is a great month and your family stays safe.

    I’m looking forward to more With His SEAL Team!

    I’m not sorry to see the end of August but September is bringing a milestone I’m not quite ready to wrap my head around. I became eligible for Medicare as of Sept. 1 (my birthday is the 3rd). I’m not sure this one is exactly bothering me but I’m thinking more about it than I have other milestone birthdays. 🙂
