More stuff is on the way!

The online store will shortly have a lot more things in it – here’s the pile of stuff waiting their closeups. Bracelets, anklets, necklaces, and ornaments – more are on the way.

New House Resident

Rosemary (“Rosie”) is our newest adoptee. Once she gets through quarantine, she can join the other rats in the big cage. She is still such a little thing!

Cat Has a Fit

So, for two months, we have been home. On the rare instances we have an errand to run, only one of us leaves the house. When Todd leaves, the cat finds me and stares at me. I’m pretty sure she’s ordering me to get him back ASAP.

Today, for the first time since sometime in March, we were both gone at the same time. Not for even an hour, but it was enough. We returned to find the blinds in the living room destroyed. Clearly, the cat had a freak-out.

I Was on the Radio!

I was interviewed for Chat and Spin Radio last Saturday and have uploaded the interview for your convenience. Enjoy!

Buying Things

I usually buy Christmas presents while I’m on vacation but who knows if we’ll get to go on a vacation this year. So, friends, if you are expecting a gift from me, it may very well be that I already have it, as I have been spending part of my life while in lockdown on the internet buying stuff on Etsy and Ebay. So…..Merry Christmas?

Are you a fan of dogs?

Maybe you need this bracelet – charms are dogs and pawprints, and the main color is pink! This one’s now been taken, but I can do something similar because I have more dog and paw print charms! Let me know if you’d like something like this and it wouldn’t have to be pink if you prefer another accent color.

You Need a Venus in Your Life

I’ve added more things to the online store, including a pendant that includes a small antique silver-colored Venus of Willendorf. You know you need her in your jewelry collection! SOLD!!

YouTube Playlists

If you haven’t checked out my YouTube channel yet, here’s what you can find there:

Sounds of Sands: the playlist where talented people read my work, either short stories or the first chapters of my novels.

Writers Wroom: either me talking about writing, or other writers talking about writing

Getting Nosy With It: enthusiastic people (some writers, some not) who share the kinds of things that drive them and that catch their attention. Writers are never satisfied and are always learning new things; see what you might learn from these videos.

Spoilers With Friends: deconstructing horror movies or other bits of media with friends. And we’re serious about the spoilers—nothing will be considered a secret here: it’s all fair game!

Infernal Intercourse: Pastor Brian Antonio and I discuss the TV show Lucifer because we both like it and want to talk about it. I thought it would be interesting to have these conversations with someone who is both fan of the show and a minister.

Junque: unique things and updates; basically, the stuff that doesn’t fit anywhere else.

I have plans for other playlists that are currently on hold due to the current pandemic-inspired lockdown. But in the future, I hope to be recording radio plays and 5-minute movies. Stay tuned for more information later! But we have to get through this shelter-in-place period of our lives first.

Stop on by, subscribe, like the videos, and make sure to leave a comment! I will certainly appreciate it.
