(No, it's not snowing today, this picture was taken a year or two back. We've had non-stop rain nearly every day since before Christmas, but I thought this picture looked nicer than one of them in the pouring rain up to their fetlocks in mud.) Oh if you feel sorry for them being out in the cold and wet, they have nice warm blankets on and a shelter with plenty of straw and hay which they can go into whenever they want to.
We're nearly two weeks into the New Year already and despite the miserable weather, we're not nearly as bad off where I live than other parts of the country which have suffered terribly from flooding. There is always something to be thankful for.
This is going to be a busy month. I have several author posts lined up and am delighted to be able to be part of my friend Mary Rickson's Facebook party on 20th January, for 'Step on Me More', a romance with a serious theme, that of bullying, which she and Joan Afman co-authored. I'll be putting the details up here and on my Facebook Page.
Changing the subject I just heard on the radio that there are more stars in the sky than all the words ever spoken by humans. Isn't that absolutely amazing!
Talking about stars, the third book in the series that started with 'Starquest' will be available in early spring and I should be able to make an announcement about the pre-order information soon. Watch this space! :)
Have a great week!
