Odds and ends

It's another dark and dreary day here. The rain has been with us for the better part of a week and everything is thoroughly soaked. Water everywhere--it's great! We haven't had any major flooding here yet, but more storms are moving in. It looks like Thursday may be the only day I can safely get over the Tehachapi pass, so that's the day I plan to travel (me, and half the countryside, no doubt.)

I got a shipment of books yesterday to sign. Got them signed and I will send them back to the publisher post haste. So far I've been told that there have been very favorable reports on it. That's always nice--we wanted it to be something that would entertain people. My family all like it too, and they're some of the main people I wanted the book for.

I wish we could have seen the lunar eclipse from here last night, but we are under a thick cloud cover. Wouldn't you know it, our sky is clear for maybe 350 nights a year but... Oh, well!

Well, the house is clean and I'm making Christmas candy and cookies. It's been so long since I got a chance to do that, that I'm really rusty. --Have to check the recipes twice, and I'm still waiting to see if the pralines set up properly. It's sort of fun anyway!

At last, it's beginning to feel like the Christmas season!
