I give Petal a bath …

I give Petal a bath (and blow dry and coconut oil on her skin) and then she gives me a bath! (laughing)

I love when Petal does this when I’m reading

I love when Petal does this when I’m reading – puts her paw against my body to make sure I’m there. It is so sweet. (Smiling)

I am reading the sequel to The Emerald Atlas called The Fire Chronicle, and enjoying it. I love engaging #MGlit (and #YAlit) fantasy.

Reading a good book and cuddling with Petal – two of my favourite things to do.

Reading a good book and cuddling with Petal – two of my favourite things to do.

I am reading #mglit THE EMERALD ATLAS by John Stephens and loving it. I love that the two sisters are strong girl-characters and heroes as well as their brother. Love that they stick together as family, through hardships and strife. Love that there are many helper characters.

Books and cuddles – perfect for a cold winter day (or any day). #theemeraldatlas #johnstephens #mgbooks #mgfantasy

My sweet author assistant Petal has got her favourite goose toy in her mouth

My sweet author assistant Petal has got her favourite goose toy in her mouth after squeaking it, while I sit in my office typing up a first draft of a new novel. (Yes, I write and edit by hand. I find it is more connected to my inner voice and creativity.) I am so glad Petal is feeling good again!

Petal and I were going to go on the Women’s March today

Petal and I were going to go on the Women’s March today but I think it’s just too cold, especially for standing around listening to speeches and then marching. They’re calling for a snowstorm and -19 weather, and when I took Petal out I felt the cold through my jeans even though I’m wearing long underwear underneath (and so is Petal) . Also Petal has a urinary tract infection which were treating but we’ve both beem up a lot of the night, second night in a row.

I am sorry to miss it but I am there in spirit. My sign was going to say: “As a lesbian feminist survivor of incest, rape, and torture I march for an end to violence against women and children, especially, and equality (and compassion) for all.

I’m typing up a (three-quarters finished) first draft of a new manuscript

I’m typing up a (three-quarters finished) first draft of a new manuscript (and just finished early edits on another), and Petal insisted on cuddling. So she’s on top of blankets on my lap, leaning on my chest, wedged between me and the desk as I work. She’s still not 100% but she is SO much better. I love this cuddly, sweet little girl.

Petal is doing SO much better!

Petal is doing SO much better! 🌈 Thank you everyone for all the good energy and wishes. I find it so hard when she’s hurting. She is perky again.

It’s snowing! I know there’ll be a lot of kids and some adults glad for snow if it stays on Christmas.
