Baby, it's cold... make that freezing, outside!

Okay, I live in the South. We are not supposed to see temperatures of 2 degrees here. What's up with this crazy weather? For those of you who live up North, I honestly cannot even imagine what you have had to deal with this winter. What's the coldest temperature so far where you live?
I actually woke up to frozen water. This hasn't happened here in 20 years. My son came and insulated the well house and installed a light, so hopefully this will be the last time it freezes. However, I know I turned on the faucets a million times this morning attempting to get water. Thank goodness, I had bottled water for coffee or things would have gotten ugly, real quick.
Oh, I now have an inside dog. Now, don't get me wrong. I would never, ever be mean to, or mistreat an animal in any way, shape, or form, but I simply was not born with that animal loving gene that makes some people treat their four legged friends like a family member.
Until now.
When my son moved to the city, I inherited his 85 pound black lab, Hudson. He has been an outside dog for the last several months. Until the temperature dropped to 8 degrees. There was no way I could leave a defenseless animal outside in those temps, so I called my son and asked him to come give his dog a bath. He did, and brought him inside.
That was 6 weeks ago.
Nobody told me that once they came inside where it was warm and toasty, dogs didn't really want to go back out. At any rate, Hudson didn't. He loves it inside. So, I now have a house dog. And the most shocking part, to me at least, is that I love it.
Lynna's Destiny is coming along nicely. I'm almost halfway finished, and if all goes as planned I'm looking forward to an Easter release.
Stay warm and curl up with a good book!



  1. Hi Kitty,

    I hope all is well with you and your loved ones.

    I have just finished the first book and I loved it. Imagine my sweet surprise to find that the ending was not an ending but a continuous to a series of three more books! I especially loath books with short hurried endings that leave me less satisfied so for this I THANK YOU! I can't wait to buy the rest of the books to this series but I don't think I can't wait too long for the final one as I like to read them all in one period. Altho I must admit I was wondering if anything more will come from the dashing pirate and am pleased that he shows up in the next book and I can't wait to get my hands on!

    I will check back periodically hoping you have an early release to last book.


  2. Hi, Muaautau. The release date for the last book in the Tropical Paradise Series, Lynna's Destiny, is April 18, 2014. Thank you for the sweet comment. I'm so glad you are enjoying the books. What country are you from? And, fyi, if you are a fan of Sean Devereux, you will probably enjoy the first book in my next series, the Descendants of Sea Grove.
