Life with the Lambs

I’ve Got a new dog! Help me name him.

Hey, Everyone. I’ve got a new pup at my house. Well, he’s two so not so much a puppy anymore.

Pop on over to my Facebook page and vote for your favorite name for him. My original options were Toby, Sherlock or Copper. But many of my readers have offered other cool ideas.

At this point, the top runners are Toby, Sherlock, Rascal and Charlie Brown. But I’m still open to suggestions.  Click HERE to join the fun!

 

 

Hubs is Hobbling Along (and Zero Hero is out in paperback)

My husband has been home from the hospital for almost a week now, with his new hip. Already he is able to take short walks, and his pain is so much less than it was before the surgery.

Being a caretaker is not as hard as I thought it would be, but it is time-consuming. So not much writing happening right now.

More on my thoughts regarding taking care of one’s spouse after surgery will be coming up in a couple weeks on my blog over at misterio press.

But I do have some book-related news. Zero Hero is out in paperback! I will have Multiple Motives out in paperback as well, as soon as the patient is a tad more self-sufficient.

Here’s the link for the paperback and Amazon has it discounted at the moment for just $7.52. Also you can get the e-book along with the paperback for only an additional $0.99 through Amazon’s new Matchbook program.

I’ll keep you posted on progress here at the Lambs!

Goldilocks Gets a Haircut

My son cut his hair. The last time he had a haircut he was thirteen. He’s now thirty-four.

(And yes, he is a priest–Episcopal, which is how I have grandchildren. 🙂 )

After all these years, everyone, myself included, assumed he would never cut it. Then I had a dream shortly before Christmas. I dreamt that we went to his house for Christmas (which is what we do since it’s easier than hauling the kids down to see us), and when he opened the door, his hair was short.

 

We laughed about the dream on Christmas day. Two days ago, he posted this on Facebook…

He’d cut his hair and donated it to an organization that makes wigs for cancer patients. A very worthy cause and I’m proud of him…

 But seeing him with short hair is going to take some getting used to.

From the front, not that different than when he had it tied back…
