A little bit of this, a little bit of that… (Contest)
Monday, April 11th, 2022

UPDATE: The winner is…Stacey Kinzebach!

I’m late posting. It happens. I’m part of a large family sharing a single house. Thank goodness it’s large enough we all have our own space! However, we pitch in to keep everything going—from housework to yardwork to…appointments.

That last was what had me late today. My SIL is a cop, and he’s working nights this month, so we have to keep our eight dogs quiet until early afternoon. My dd took the 13-year-old for a COVID test before her Wednesday surgery, which was over an hour away, so after I helped get the other kids off to school, I sat upstairs with the dogs all around me to keep them from barking. Why so many dogs? My mom and dad had four when they both passed and my dd had five, so when we combined houses to live together, well… One dog has since passed, and because we believe in forever homes, it will be FOREVER before we have a reasonable number of dogs. I didn’t even mention our four (it was five until a couple of months ago!) cats because they are ghosts and no problem at all. The horse and the three goats live in the pasture, so no problem there either. 🙂

Anyways, we’re getting ready for days of storms. It’s raining now. We expect thunderstorms. On Wednesday, we could very well see large hail and tornadoes added to the mix. The power flipped off last night for about an hour. That was just a precursor. So, we’re making sure we have the right provisions on hand in case we lose power for longer than that.

I’m charging up my laptop and making sure the files are all updated with the latest versions—in case I have to switch to it to keep working. We have a generator to keep our fridge going. When we need it, we unplug that, make coffee, and charge our devices. We live in the country, so we know how to do this.

So, it’s only Monday. What’s your week look like? For a chance to win a FREE download from my backlist of books, let me know!
