Cold Sun

The sun is out after a couple of days of rain but, it’s cold! YES! Finally! It’s currently 48 degrees out there. Yippeee! It also promises to be a cool Thanksgiving not an 80 degree one.

Rott continues to have the worst cough ever. I appear to be pretty much over it and was last week. I have a little lingering occasional cough but that’s nothing for an old hand at asthma like me. Luckily, Nikki (Motley) hasn’t been here to get it. It was a horrid cold although I didn’t get it nearly as bad as everyone else who has had it.

Couple of quick things before I hand you a Marcus and take off for work. First, I got a new phone! Oh, wooty woot! I can Tweet now from anywhere! I missed my Winterheart Twitter account. I’m not a good web Twitter user so I’ve just not been tweeting. It was awesome to tweet with Dave2, say hi to Karl, and give MattMan a good morning. All I need to do now is pass a hug on to Gooster. 😉

I got a Samsung Vibrant, a Galaxy S Android phone. It’s seriously fun. I loved my HTC Dash but damn. This new phone is orgasmic.

Next, I was invited to spend Black Friday hanging out at James Buchanan’s house with other local authors. I can’t tell you how exciting that sounds. Even Nikki wants to go. I’m not all that literary so I don’t envision it as tea and elevated discussion afternoon, but it sounds like a total romp!

Let’s see, what else? Ummmn…Oh yeah! I have a prize to give away! Last week I was on a bunch of blogs and I offered a prize to one lucky commenter. I put all the names in a box and showed Noisy the box of crumpled paper. As usual, he grabbed one and ran off with it. After chasing him around the bedroom to get the paper, I found that the name on the sticky note was…Tonya Callihan! Tonya, you win an electronic copy of one of my books so check my backlist at LexValentine.com and I’ll be in contact via email to see what you want.

Speaking of giveaways, stay tuned to this blog this week because on Wicked Wednesday I have Marisa Chenery posting about her vamps and on Thanksgiving I will be announcing a special Christmas contest for Lex Valentine readers.

Now, how about that Marcus? I did Six Sentence Sunday this weekend and one of the authors posted a pic of Marcus. I drooled as I always do. LOL

Oh yum. That is an awesome image. I love the expression on his face. Okay, I love the hot body too. 😉

Now, that it’s 47 degrees with golden sun I’m headed off into that cold sun day to hold down the fort while my boss is on vacay. I hope he enjoys his days off while I stress of commissions for payroll. Seriously, he deserves the time off. He’s a good boss. We love him and he works really hard. I even voted for him for Employee of the Year. He’s not perfect but he’s grown as a boss, something I appreciate.

Here I go, off to the cemetery! You all have a wonderful Monday!

    Nice new phone. It looks like it’s going to be a great one for you. Samsung does make decent phones and with this one being an Android model, you have the flexibility of adding all sorts of apps.

      I’ve had nothing but Samsungs until I got the Dash which is HTC. Almost went with the new fancy schmancy HTC touch screen but decided against another Windows phone. So far I’m quite happy with the Vibrant.

    Regina – I hope you feel better quickly! And yeah, the phone is waaay too much fun!

    Carol – Nothing sucks more than a hot Thanksgiving. I do not know how Australians manage reverse seasons. I’d freak.

    Susie – I feel so bad for Rott. He took me to get a case for the phone tonight and I felt bad that he was out in the cold. But with the parking wars around here, it’s better if I come straight home from work or I’d have to park a few blocks away.

    Karl – Now I know how you all felt when you got your iPhones. This phone is awesome. And it was great seeing you too. I missed everyone when I couldn’t really tweet.

    I hope that Rott kicks that cold soon. It’s bad to be sick, its worse to be looking after or even just around a man whose sick.
    Have a wonderful time enjoying your cooler weather. There is rain today on my side of the US.

  13. Good for you on whipping the cold into submission. I’m under the weather today but determined to not curl up in a ball and whine (too much…lol) It’s supposed to be in the 40’s for our Texas Thanksgiving. Yay on that. Nobody likes 80’s during the holidays (do they?). The new phone looks FUN. It would prolly take me a month to figure it all out.
