Witches and Ramblings
First of all, thanks to all of you who supported the launch of
Witches and Fairies and Tacos... Oh My.
You helped give it a great start.
The pace has finally slowed and I'm able to spend much more time now writing the second House Witches book. I think you'll like this one, too. And that's all I'm saying about it for a while.
While some areas of the U.S. have seen horrible flooding, here in Texas we've now been two and a half months without measurable rainfall and daily high temperatures between 95-105. Over the last couple of weeks, we've had a rainy afternoon or two, but have accumulated less than one inch of rain. We are more than twenty inches behind for the year, and for a while, we were under Stage 3 Water Restrictions because a major water main broke. Don't even think about what may be coming next. We need that box to stay securely sealed.
After one of those five-minute showers, several little green anole lizards appeared on the leaves of shrubs outside my writing window. They were licking the drops of water from the leaves. I looked over at one point and saw the biggest lizard I've ever seen in my life on the brick support for the roof of our porch with his head down and tail up. Biggest outside of large iguanas, that is. He was the same reddish-brown color that is in our multi-color brick. His skin was not smooth like the little anoles we have everywhere. I tried to guesstimate his size. His head and body were about 7-8 inches total and his tail another 8-10 inches. His body was about two inches across and his head at least one inch. Maybe he was the Godfather Anole
And finally... Do you know what you call a guppy wearing a bow tie?
See you in September!
