Snow Pix and Writing Success

The profession of book-writing makes horse racing seem like a solid, stable business." - John Steinbeck

Have had two successful days. I wrote 524 words yesterday. They were fun ones, as I felt the story was getting a little too serious. While "Kitchen Matches" wasn't marketed as a romantic comedy, I like to think of it as being romance that doesn't take itself seriously, and the sequels should be the same way. So yesterday I had a Weathers family gathering (of course Micah was included) and those are always fun.

I wonder if I can get them on the football field again? Hmmm....

Sorry, those of you who haven't read "Kitchen Matches" haven't a clue what I'm talking about...

Otherwise I had a quiet day. We skipped the dog park in the morning, and ended up going closer to lunch time. There were some great dogs there, including a Swiss Mountain Dog -- something I've not seen in person before. I've seen many Burnese Mountain Dogs, so was puzzled at first. This guy looked like a tall, shaved version.

He was a sweetie, and the dog Dakota played with most, except the Basset Hound, who did his darndest to keep up with the two speed demons.

It didn't snow much yesterday (yay!) and no snow is expected today or tomorrow (yay again!). We might get a couple inches on Tuesday, but at this point, I'll take any break from the white stuff. Seriously.... take a tour of the city with me (it was an overcast day, hence the blue color -- and they're taken on my cell phone and yes, I was driving, but I wasn't looking at what I was taking... was just snapping like crazy and hoping some came out. Some did. Others, not so much):


You Are the Moon

Some may find you to be a bit harsh, but if anything you are a realist.

You are a loner and prefer to keep to yourself. You are shy, but you're also naturally introverted.

Those who get to know you appreciate your practical, no-nonsense approach to life.

You may not be warm and fuzzy, but you are extremely caring in your own way.

That pretty much nails me. Hey, Judy, bet you're the sun!

thanks for sharing your snow picture. I'm ready for it all to end.

You Are the Sun

You are a very warm and welcoming person. You make others feel at ease immediately.

You are fun loving, but you also have a serious side. You love to delve deeply into ideas.

You are intellectual and philosophical. You are apt to change your mind about things after thinking about them more.

You have a restless spirit, and it keeps your curious about the world. You love that there is always more to see or do.

This is so true.

Good luck with your word count today.

Have a good Sunday.

You'll dislike me very much today-it's 65 degrees here right now. Mother Nature must be on drugs. Thanks for sharing the pictures of your snow covered city.

My quiz results were the same as Dru's.

Hope you have a delightful day!

I'm with Brandy. I'm wearing shorts for the 3rd day in a row. :/

When we were at the dog show last weekend, we saw the short-haired Bernese Mountain dogs. They called them something else, but I can't remember what it was! I love the Bernese breed, but they have such a short life span I think that would be too hard for me.
