What exactly are we celebrating?
Every week, wonderful things happen, tiny things, which make us smile. But as time grabs us up, we forget all about these moments as if they never existed at all. This is the chance for us to reflect back on those and remember that there are tons of things worth celebrating.
This week, I'm celebrating. . .
1) Wedding anniversary! It's our 22nd today. My how time flies. I won't see my husband but maybe for a few minutes (explanation following) today, which is fine. I'm sure we'll have many more days and years to come.
2) Hunting season! This is why my husband is going to be out and about today. It started last weekend. And while he enjoyed romping through the forest and scouting deer with my brother last weekend, he wasn't very successful. So he's going to give it another go. Honestly, he's not a big hunter but does it more for the time outside and to spend quality time with my youngest brother. Luckily, he doesn't have to be successful either. My freezer is already set since my other brother was kind enough to give us one of his bucks earlier this week. (something important since I really do count on the meat).
3) Lots of writing time! Life has been calmer. . .always is this time of year on our farm. . .so I've been revising away. I'm treating it as my Nano contribution, which obviously makes for an impossible word count. But I figure the MS is just about 50,000 words and by the time I get done revising it (it's an in-depth revision, not a light one), that's got to count for the 50,000.
Also. . .
. . .blogger buddy, D.A. Cairns, has brought out a new book this week!
(I need a book birthday song or gif or something for these)
Anyway, here it is. . . .
Which you can find
Angus has battled an obsession with sex throughout his adult life. Although outwardly a model husband and father with a respectable life and a well-paying job, he has a shameful secret life which he has become highly skilled at hiding.
Cassy is married to Angus and has no idea about his secret life. In fact, with her own worries she has been pulling away from him, emotionally and physically which is making his behaviour worse. Although she does not know it, Cassy is fanning the flames of an inferno which threatens to destroy their marriage.
Lovesickness: the eternal bane of humanity, the inescapable affliction which we simultaneously crave and fear. For Angus and Cassy, already in the thirteenth year of their marriage, the painful journey to true happiness has only just began.
Love Sick Love is a brutally honest and confronting story of love, sexual obsession and hope.
So, what about you? What put a smile on your face this last week?
Find a pair of woolly gloves? Meet someone kind on the street? Did something small catch your eye for just a second, something which made you smile?
