My Beautiful Baby

  Who isn't so little anymore!  I realized this morning while washing the dishes, that I never told everyone on here that I got to keep Rosie!!!!!  I am a very happy dog mamma and she is a rascal, but a sweetheart.  And HUGE!!  3 months and 5 days old and it's like you can see her growing!!


She used to be able to curl up on one of my hands!!

Now the only place she can curl up is my lap, but she's getting too big for that even.


And it takes both hands to cradle her head.

And look at those paws!  They're huge!
Watching her imitate her mother can be rather amusing.

  And at various times in the last month, there were amusing formations in the clouds.

Here is a great big whale. 

AND....ZORRO WAS HERE!!!  I wonder who he was rescuing?

The Worth of a King: Cover Reveal

  Hey all, I am appearing once again, this time to bring you the cover reveal for Kendra E. Ardnek's Worth of a King.





This book will be released on August 27th, and I'm very much looking forward to reading it! 



Princess Obsidia’s father was killed the night she was born. Since there was no male heir, the crown went to the man who killed him, by Dialcian law. This never bothered her, growing up, and when it comes time for Obsidia to choose her husband, she chooses Prince Delaney, the son of that man, with little hesitation. Only then does her life start crumbling around her.
Adrian expected to live a normal life, taking his father’s place at the print shop when his father retired. But, on his eighteenth birthday, when the princess’ engagement is announced, his world is ripped out from under him when he learns that his life was a ruse, and he is the twin brother to the princess – and expected to take back his father’s throne.
Delaney knows that his country is hovering on the brink of war – and that his father may harbor murderous intentions towards his intended bride due to her Zovordian blood. He wants nothing more than to protect Obsidia and his people, but as merely prince, he has little power against his father.
The ancient war between the Dragons and the Immortal King and Queen is nearing its climax, and the three are already caught in it.

You can find the first chapter here:

And here a snippet from the book.

One evening when Adrian was, as usual, in the library hoping for a chance to meet with his sister, he heard giggling.
This wasn’t terribly unusual. The library was popular for stolen trysts between lovers. Yet Adrian was bored and the couple wasn’t being quiet, so he unconsciously wandered towards the giggling.
As he expected, he found a young couple just a few shelves down. They appeared to be about Adrian’s age, and both wore expensive clothing. He also wore a number of finely-crafted weapons, and she an array of jewelry that didn’t strictly go together. He was whispering in her ear, hands trailing through her long, frizzy, brown hair. Apparently, he was being very amusing for she was the one giggling.
Adrian was going to back away and leave them to it, but her head shot up and her amber eyes locked with his. All mirth instantly vanished, and her lover even removed his hands and backed away.
There was no guilt in either of them, however, as Adrian was accustomed to seeing in the couples that he had previously caught.

And here is a Pinterest Inspiration picture.

Showing her something that was always special to him as a child?
 So, yes, this scene happened. Ended up being a turning point in Adrian and Obsidia's relationship.

And now, I need to go eat breakfast.  See y'all later!

"Christmas Bells Ring Out Their Chimes..."

  "...I hear them echo, through the night.  
And moonlight shines upon the road, and trembles on the falling snow."


Merry Christmas Eve!
May your day be full of Joy, Love and Laughter.


"If you don't come what will I do,
Who shall I tell my secrets to."

Five Weeks Old...And Merry Christmas Adam!

  Merry Christmas Adam, Everyone!! 


We have snow!!!!  Lots of it!!  The puppies are spending more time outside now, and when we took them out this morning, we found that the shed door had been left open so one corner was full of snow.  They dove right into it and got their first experience of snow without floundering around in the 6 in. outside.  They've also discovered that sinking their teeth in and pulling on your clothing is fun.  Thankfully they haven't ripped my skirt yet.  And then, right after Sam and I finished taking their pictures, Bilbo crawled under Sam (who was sitting on a timber-tie) and bit his backside.  Now, Sam was wearing snowpants over his jeans, so Bilbo didn't hurt him, but he rocketed off that tie scolding the dog.  It was funny.

Their pile of snow.

Mommy stands on top of their hut to get some peace.

Little Rosie

Rosie is OBSESSED with the snow.

Bungo.  The red-brown on his legs is adorable.

Esmeralda.  She's so pristine.

Bilbo getting into mischief.

Bullroarer surveying his domain.

Diamond snuggling Sam.  Just before and just after, she was chewing on his mitten.

Elanor.  I love their little tails.

And there are their pictures for another week!  See ya!
