Rambling On… 22 November 2019
My man has started his fence building training and he loves it.
Last week he travelled for just over two hours to the eastern outskirts of Melbourne each morning for his introduction to his new business and this week he’s out and about working with another local fencer to learn the ropes.
He’s not having any trouble picking up the tricks of the trade since he’s already so handy with the tools and seeing how things go together, and he’s having a blast.
I’m not stressed now that things are starting to move a long and I have to say I’ve been able to get more words down on my keyboard since I’ve been at home alone. Don’t get me wrong, I love seeing my hubby when he gets home, to give him a kiss and a cuddle, but since he’s out of the house longer than he used to be during the day, I’m finding it a little easier to concentrate on my work.
Last weekend we headed to Apollo Bay for my uncle’s 75th birthday. We stopped at my sister to give her and her hubby a ride since we needed to virtually go passed their home anyway. It would have been stupid taking two cars.
We travelled the inland road to the coastal town since the Great Ocean Rd is so busy with cars and tour buses. It’s just easier when you have to be at a destination at a certain time. It took two hours for us to get there, including the stop to get my sister’s and my brother-in-law. It probably would have taken us at least another half an hour if we’d taken the oceanic scenic route.
If any of you ever get to Australia and down to my neck of the woods, I’d recommend taking the Great Ocean Road, driving along the coast and around all those twists, turns and hairpin corners. It’s a wonderful experience.
We enjoyed a nice lunch and catching up with family we don’t see often enough. I even had a glass of wine with my chicken salad wrap and it went down a treat.
We stayed and had a cuppa with my sister and her man when we drove them home, catching up on what had been going on in each other’s lives, too.
All in all, it was very enjoyable.
As we approach what is predicted to be a long hot summer, those of you in the northern hemisphere are entering winter. I hope you are all surviving your cool weather, some well below freezing temperatures and all that ice and snow. Brr. Shiver.
We had a really hot day yesterday with a top of 39.2 degrees C (102F) and today we’re back to a comfortable 19 degrees C.
For those of you in North America, I know Thanksgiving is coming your way on Thursday the 28th, too. So, I’m wishing you all an early happy Thanksgiving, where ever you are, since the next newsletter won’t be out until a couple of days later.
I hope you all enjoy spending time with your families and friends while sharing your meals and just being together.
Have a great weekend.
Stay safe, healthy and happy.

What Have I Been Writing?
I’ve finished writing Slave Gold Dimensions 3: New Reality and am about to submit it to Siren BookStrand for possible publications this afternoon, Friday.
I’ve also started another Pack Law book a couple of days ago, but whether I finish this story in time to submit it by the end of the month, I can’t say.
I hope so.
I’ve been working hard and writing more than my 5000 words. My fingers and forearms are sore from so much typing, but I’ll keep going no matter what.
What Have I Been Reading?
I’m three quarters of the way through Dark Lover, the first novel in the (Black Dagger Brotherhood) series by J.R. Ward and I’m loving it.
If I didn’t have to work, I might’ve taken and the day off to read it all in one go. I’m anticipating the end and may have to buy the next book in the series. I think I’m hooked.
I will leave it there for now.
Enjoy your week ahead, until next week.
