Time Waster

I've worked like a dervish this week. Or whirled like one. In the end, it was the same thing. But first, look at the adorable little time wasters we rescued... They may not look like much yet, but these are snake killers in training, barn cats extraordinaire. Petey...

Finally 🙂

After 15.5 days of procrastination, I finally started writing SNAKE OIL yesterday at 4:30 pm. I am only 1000 words in so it's not time to strain my shoulder patting myself on the back, but a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. I had a week's worth...
