The snow’s almost gone, except in the shady areas where it’s still as solid as … ice!.
Our compost bins have finally thawed out so I went to empty one of them yesterday, (I rotate between three big plastic garbage cans) and came across a huge clump of worms huddled together near the bottom. Feeling like an immanent mass-murderer I hurriedly buried them in the deepest part of the open compost pile and scuttled away feeling terribly guilty. I think they’ll be fine, once they get over the shock, and will have much more room there than in the bin that’s for sure.
We’re having a lovely stretch of bright sunny days and shivery-cold nights, and one of the benefits of us both being self-employed is that we can take time out of each day and absorb some of the glorious beams that grace the garden after midday, so long as we avoid the shadows. They’re cold.
In other news, Smashwords is having its annual Read an Ebook Week Sale, from today, 3rd March, until the 9th March 2019, so I’ve added Prelude to the list. It’s on sale for $3USD for the next seven days.
First there came a Great Dragon …
… who was soon joined by her good friend, the Emerald Phoenix …
The sun is shining so bright it’s almost impossible to look out my window without squinting as the gorgeous beams dance over and bounce off of the hard packed frozen snow. A brisk northerly wind has blown every cloud from the sky and the gusts howl through my, slightly open window, because who can resist such a harbinger of Spring.
Prelude, the print version is now up and running!!! Herewith be it! … I’m not sure why the ebook and print editions have different pages, but the ways of the ‘Zon are not for mortals to decipher, nor are they for the fainthearted. It’s also available in the UK, Canada, etc too. Just type in the title, and subtitle (Prelude – the Gaining of Shamanic Wisdom) and away you go.
When last we hear from our intrepid SNOW!!!™ reporter she had discovered that snow really does form ‘snowflake’ shapes.
Alas, her joy was not to last.
The -20C gusty winds blew most of the fluffy snow away to parts unknown, and our sad SNOW!!!™ reporter was sad …
But, lo and behold, the very next day …
Our SNOW!!!™ reporter and her spouse shoveled the snow off their paths and driveway and then wandered down to the lake to see what had become of it …
Our SNOW!!!™ reporter was last seen ambling up the road, looking for further snowy adventures.
During of the process of writing Prelude last year, I decided it was time I started Teaching again, and to that end I’ve set up another blog, called Widdershins, The Shaman. (original, I know) Apart from putting up information about Prelude, I haven’t really started posting anything, until now.
So if you’d like to have a squiz at my first official post, on the creation of the Wheel of the Year, herewith it be: Creating the Wheel of the Year. It even has a couple of hand-drawn colored diagrams, because what’s a Shaman-y post without a bit of color?
Look what came in the mail today …
I need to give it the once-over and if nothing’s out of place it’ll go ‘live’ in a matter of hours, although Amazon does say it can take up to 72 hours to appear on their website.
… on Sue Vincent’s Blog, about a story I wrote whilst crossing the Prairies in 2015 … the year of our eventful trans-Canadian RV adventure.
Herewith be the LINK … hope you enjoy it.
And here’s the story of our Adventure … it loads the last post, first, for some unknowable reason, so you’ll have to scroll down to find the first one. It was quite a trip!
One of the many we encountered crossing that flat expanse.
… let you know that Prelude is now available as an ebook at Amazon and Kobo, as well as Smashwords.
You can follow the links here, …
SMASHWORDS in mobi, (for Kindles) ePub, etc, formats
… and just about everywhere else eBooks are sold …
A couple of weeks ago I did a ‘Bon Voyage’ post for Carol Channing, and I couldn’t find a video that epitomized her. I went with one I liked, but it wasn’t quite ‘it. Today I found ‘it’.
I give you the stupendous, the magnificent, the quirky, Carol Channing … take it away Carol …
