Rambling On… 12 July 2019
It’s been a crazy week with work, family and feeling a little under the weather, but I’m looking forward to the weekend.
It’s my man’s birthday on Monday and since he and everyone else has to work that day, we’re celebrating his day on the weekend.
My daughter’s coming home on Saturday sometime and staying the night.
When I asked hubby what he wanted for his birthday, he said, nothing since I don’t need anything, but it would be great to have a nice home cooked lunch and spend time with the kids.
So that’s what we’re planning.
I’m going to slow roast a leg of lamb. There will also be roast potatoes, carrots and sweet potatoes and other veg. Served up with Yorkshire puddings. My Yorkshire puddings always have bacon, cheese and mixed herbs in them. They’re more like a savoury muffin and are delicious dipped in gravy.
Since my daughter is coming, I’ll have to remember to make sure to use the gluten free self raising flour.
#Note to self, DON’T POISON YOUR DAUGHTER#For dessert, I’ll be making a rich flourless chocolate cake which is to die for. It has to be one of the nicest chocolate cakes I’ve ever made since there is a lot of dark cooking chocolate in the recipe.
Who doesn’t like chocolate or dessert??
I know my daughter will want to take some home with her since she’s got such a sweet tooth, (just like her daddy), so I plan to double the recipe.
Saturday night we’ll be having gluten free lasagne. There will be more than enough leftover so she can also take the rest home with her, then she doesn’t have to worry about cooking for a day or two.
Although I won’t be able to get out of the house this weekend, it doesn’t bother me one bit.
My whole family is going to be together again.
What more could a mum and dad ask for?
What Have I Been Writing???
As you all know from my last newsletter I was in a bit of a dilemma and couldn’t decide what to write. I have another Slick Rock story in mind, but I also wanted to change things up a bit since I’ve written a few books for this series in a row.
I ummed and aahed and even asked you all what you wanted me to write. I thank those of you who replied and requested books from other series and all the kind words regarding my writing.
However, before the last newsletter even went out, I had the urge to continue writing one of the two stories I’d started even though I hadn’t quite made up my mind, which one I would continue with. Pack Law 8 was begging to be written. So that’s what I’m writing this month.
I know its been years since I’ve written any Pack Law books but I just couldn’t ignore the calling for another one.
So far things are going well, and my characters are developing nicely.
I hope you all enjoy reading about my werewolves in Aztec, New Mexico.
Please don’t think I’ve discounted any suggestion you, my loyal readers, have made for new books. I’m definitely keeping them all in mind for future plans and tell me what you all would like to read, and I’ll endeavour to write it.
This week I’ve had a bit of trouble concentrating on work let alone on reading.
Last week my hubby had a cold and he graciously shared it with me. Lol, shit happens.
Luckily for us we had flu shots a couple of months ago but that, of course, doesn’t prevent any of us from getting other viruses or even the flu even if it’s a milder case.
By the end of each day, I was pretty tired since the cold sort of sapped me of stamina and concentration. I’ve been flitting from book to book, not really being able to get interested in anything. My lack of concentration wasn’t anything to do with the stories. It was just the way I was feeling.
I did manage to finish one story in a book from author Riley Storm, High House Ursa: The Complete Bear Shifter Box Set.
I did enjoy this story and will eventually read the rest but it’s going to take a while since I’m just over 20% in. I think there maybe another four stories in the set, but I’m not sure since I haven’t looked.
