This week has flown by and now that the weekend is here, I have to get some house cleaning done, not to even mention the pile of laundry waiting for me.  Since the weather has been so hot, I don’t mind using the washing machine, but hate to turn on the dryer. My washer and dryer are in the kitchen, which is great except in hot weather, and yes the dryer is vented outside, but it still puts off heat.



By Sunday, our chances of afternoon rain increases.  That will help cool the hot weather.  So far today, it hasn’t been too bad, but I keep the fans running continuously, which helps.  All my fur babies are curled up asleep.  I am happy to report my beloved Pyewacket, my black cat,  has lost enough weight that he can now reach his back legs without his belly being in the way.

Also, it is hard to believe that August is closing fast on July.  Fall and winter are chomping through the days eager for their turn in the year.  2016 is close to being born and 2015 will hobble out on his cane never to be seen again.

NEW HANGMAN SINGLEI hope this year has been prosperous for everyone.  I know I have accomplished a lot of writing and learning about the craft.  But writing, like painting, is a continual learning process, which is great.  If and when we ever reach the point we think we know everything about writing, then we’re only fooling ourselves.  So keep growing in the craft.  I intend to by working to perfect THE HANGMAN and the other books in the series.

Everyone have a great weekend.  Stay safe as life is short.
