All the edits are done for Talk Dirty to Topaz. YAY. I’ve been filling out the cover art form for Heat Waves, due out in September. Today was supposed to be about getting prepared for our granddaughter’s baptism on Sunday. We’re expecting 40 people at our house, for a gathering afterwards. Needless to say we have a lot to do. Well one of our three dogs got sprayed by a skunk last night. Can’t fathom how the skunk got in our yard, but he did.
Last night was so much fun. Can you hear the sarcasm dripping with each word? This happened around 10pm, so while the DH bathed him in vinegar I ran out to get baking soda and peroxide (per the internet). Our dogs do NOT like the bath. While J was in the tub the other two whined and cried. You’d think we were killing their brother! The DH did a fantastic job getting most of the smell out of him. Today they’ll all go to the groomers for a proper cleaning.
On top of that nightmare our house reeks. I’ve got cinnamon powder cooking in the oven (another internet remedy). It seems to be working so far, wish me luck.
Off to watch baby T, while her mom tries to find a job. Too much to do, not enough time in the day. Hope everyone has a great weekend!


  1. Okay, you are having some day! The good and the stinky!

  2. LOL! Yes, I thought the smell would never get out of my house. But it has. Now to entertain 40 people today. Woo Hoo.

  3. Good luck with all the chaos, sweetie!
