The Days Are Definitely A Blur

Well… sorta.

I’ve been keeping track of what day of the week it is. Hopefully we’ll go back to Borking Days on Tues and Friday soon. Gus does need to get out and it’s actually really better for him if he has a walker he doesn’t live with so here’s hoping we get that going again this week.

If not, then I’ll take him out.

I’ve been watching Hiro learn how to cook stuff every once in a while. For those who might sorta recognize him, he’s been Kamen Rider and the lead in Black Butler. If you ever wanted to learn how to make tempura, here it is.

I’ve got smoked hamhocks in the Instapot with sauteed onions and garlic. I’ll be adding sausage and collard greens to it once that’s gone through the pressure stage. And of course, make some rice and that’s dinner. They didn’t have 3 lbs of hock but I did have a smoked pork shank in the freezer so that went in this time. We also have to polish off the sweet ginger-cucumber kimchee I made so I can make the next batch. Also, eat the regular kimchee that is in there.

Almost done with this project then rolling into the next. After that, Saint. Because of course I do need to finish up the 415 Ink boys. Working from home doesn’t really give much MORE time for writing but it does mean I don’t have to lose an hour in commute so that’s nice. And well, the dog’s all… I’ll get up when I get up because I sure as fuck don’t need to be awake at 5:30 am. Feel the love from the dog.

Hopefully all of you are staying safe and healthy. Remember to wash your hands and call relatives and friends. Oh, and hug your pets. But not the fish. That would be bad.

Thank you to the service industry people who make Flattening The Curve possible!

One of the most interesting things about being in “isolation mode” has been getting things to make other things because stuff’s in short supply. Some stuff like kimchi is impossible to find in the stores nearby and while I could leave the house and go to Zion or HMart, it would really break that isolation we’ve been in. Since I was hella sick a little bit ago, I don’t want to chance anything.
 
Now, we order thru SHIPT or Instacart and I got a shopper who sent this. I think it’s adorable because she’s like… I HAVE NO IDEA!
 
It’s been kind of fun interacting with our shoppers because one lady was all… WHAT IS THIS? It looks good! I want to try it!
 
I tip well and always make sure they stay safe. Our shopper right now said, they have paper towels, one package left. It’s not on your list but do you need it?
 
I said nope, leave it for someone who does but can I tell you she earned a HUGE tip just for asking. So for everyone out there shopping, driving, delivering and doing all of the things we can’t do because we’re flattening the curve… THANK YOU!

Best part! TA Moore did the cover for Collared. I’m asking they change the credit because that’s all her work! WOOOT!

WOOOOOT! Contract Signed and A Title for Kai 4!

Took me a bit to get the title down. Sometimes I can’t get that going until the end, especially for Kai but this one finally stepped into place. It’s a definite shift in his world and while for me, it was a brutal write, I still had fun with it. Both delicate and brutal. So… there we go and in the immortal words of the Foo Fighters…

Done, done and I’m on to the next one…

 

Just some stuff…

I thought I’d take a break from navel gazing and just share some stuff. Because you know, navel gazing can lead to ulcers.

SO close to the end of Kai. Watch for the screaming camel!

And now for some nonsense and just happy stuff…

Like this unicorn.

And this… Stray Staffie With A Fabulous Smile Finds Her Forever Home

Stray Staffie With A Fabulous Smile Finds Her Forever Home

Look at that smile! She’s so adorable. I do love Staffies. They’re such great dogs.

I also want to share the link to the latest Baumgartner Fine Art Restoration video. I haven’t watched it yet which is a crime because I usually watch them immediately but between travel and trying to hammer out the rest of this book, I’ve held off this video as a reward. It’s gonna be my chocolate twinkie! Which I still haven’t eaten but let’s face it, that’ll be there forever.
