Morning smile

I've been away at James Cook Uni, teaching a five day Intensive on Romance Writing. Must say it's lovely to be back in our cool green hills and to find garden and animals coping without us (thanks to attentions of kind neighbours).

Might take me a day or two to recover, but I know that at least one visitor to this blog will enjoy this obituary written by EB White (author of Charlotte's Web) for his dog Daisy in 1931. It was sent to me by another wonderful dog loving writer, Marion Lennox.

Small excitement...

We can get excited over the smallest things, can't we? I think I've mentioned before that I love living on the Tablelands, because it means I can live in the Tropics with the beautiful rainforests and native animals and nearby reefs, but for a large part of the year I get to enjoy a temperate climate -- and to grow temperate plants. I mean... I've lived in the tropics for forty years, and now for the first time, I'm growing liliums...

My only complaint is that the colours come out at different times. It's watermelon pink this week. :)

Piglet antics

These aren't our piglets, but they so easily could be. Their beahviour is EXACTLY the same.

What's next?

After a fabulous family visit on the long weekend...
I'm allowing myself one last day to add final touches to the first draft of the Zoe's Muster sequel, before I  dive in to my next M&B, a collaborative trilogy with Michelle Douglas and Soraya Lane.
Meanwhile, to show you I care... I'm bringing you something almost as good as a Liam Neeson movie -- Liam Neeson the Musical. Enjoy!
