:hi:

A bit bogged down with the amount of work and deadlines on this freelance job. But hey, got bills to pay. So, I'm not complaining but I do miss fiction writing and hanging around here with you peeps. :)

Happy New Year to you all. X

Happy New Year!

I have been ignoring people way too much. :( Life has brought me some unfun stuff to deal with over the last several months, and there's more to come (although I'm hopeful things will be more or less stabilized by spring).

But I think of you all, especially when I rant and rave on AW threads. :D :e2flowers

Just popping in to say hey ya'll!

Hiya, HS :hi:

Been ages since I've been in here. *Wipes the dust off a chair and sits down.* 'Anyone got cookies?':e2cookie:

Hi Muse! I have cookies and coffee.
Feels strange being here - empty. Ghostly sounds of voices, laughter and clinking of glasses. Where is everyone? Must try to get back more often.
I had an operation earlier this year and typing and other stuff is so much easier now. :) I am writing again. A few ups and downs. Good news though about diabetes - I can come off the meds if I maintain the present blood sugar level. sigh . . .

Hi Shakes! Good to hear the operation went well.

I don't think there's any sugar in gin, so stick to a 100% gin diet and you'll be off the meds in no time!

Great news on being able to come off the meds, Shakes.:banana:

Now... you said something about cookies?

Sounds like a plan OSG! At least it would if I still imbibed - gave it up nearly three years ago!

Cookies sound good though!

I'm still scribbling away. It is funny where ideas come from. My brother has a cat. The cat gave him a gift of a weasel, still alive. Family then had a writing competition - the story had to have the phrase "the weasel that ran" in it. Great fun writing it!

Annual checking in.
I hope you are all OK. I am. At home doing lots of stuff and nothing.

Opening my favorite 85% dark chocolate bar while staring at my 85K story willing the blinking cursor to edit it for me. Not successful at mentally manipulating the computer to fix the manuscript so I've actively moved to procrastinating here.

Much like my chocolate, my story is dark. I like dark, but I'm wondering how to pump some levity into the dark world I've painted. Not saying I'm ready for white chocolate, but a little milk chocolate wouldn't kill me.

Hope you are all well. Lockdown has been, and continues to be, weird!
I am writing, embroidering and annoying the Bear.
Stay safe.

Hello shakes! Life under COVID can be like that, can't it? But you and I are still here, despite that year, and I am very grateful for that!
