Rain, rain go away

rain

Well, it’s been raining here in East, Texas for a couple weeks now. I’m starting to forget what the sun looks like. At least three more days are in the forecast. Oh, I know, we need the rain. Its good for all the little flowers that will be coming up shortly. I’m just not a fan of clouds, they bring me down. After a few days my mood turns as dark as the sky.

Maybe I’m spoiled after living in Colorado for over forty years where the sun shines almost every single day. I have to say since moving to Texas last summer, for the most part its been pretty sunny. I think its February. Isn’t February awful everywhere? It’s our shortest month, but somehow feels like the longest. I lived in several different states in my life, in many different regions of our country with many different climates. One conclusion I’ve come too, is this: October is beautiful no matter where you are, And, February is not. Once we pass Christmas and Valentine’s Day, we’re all ready for spring, but it’s still winter. I will survive. That little jingle we used to say as kids has been running through my head all day “rain, rain, go away, come again another day.” Maybe if I say it enough the sun will peek through:)

Enjoy your day, wherever you are. Even if it’s raining.

Back to Writing

Happy 2017! I hope everyone is having a good year so far. The past month has been hectic in my life. The Christmas and New Year had three weeks of company at my house. It was so good to see my whole family and get to spend some quality time with all of them. But my writing got put on hold. Then when everyone left, I had a week of trials in my day job. Exhausted, this weekend I realized I’ve written virtually nothing in over a month. Where were my hero and heroine when I last left them? It’s time to get back to work, and let them continue their story. I’ve missed them.┬áMy New Year’s resolution is to find more time for writing and I’m determined to do just that. Three more Peakview novels are in the works for 2017, and I hope to finish them all before years end. Wish me luck.2017
