We've had our third snow plowing for December, 2018 and it began snowing again early this morning. Not sure as to whether or not will need another plowing. We have a dear friend, Chad, who really knows how to use a snow blade and Moose Pass can be a real challenge when there is a good dumping. A few years ago were had over 12 feet of snow, and then a couple yrs later our winter snow fall was only about 6 inches. We almost had a green Christmas that year.
Christmas was a grand celebration with some 15 people here for the opening of presents and chow. Sort of reminded me of that Christmas when we had 21 people here and the power went out right in the middle of the festivities. Solomon and Segen, Mona and my great-grandchildren were extremely happy with the morning, even though this was a year of less presents and more handmade items. This made it great. Canaan worked hard all day on Christmas Eve for a special dinner and it was quite tasty, with leftovers readily available for Christmas Day. Than yesterday a box arrived from James & Becca, and their girls, Nice treats and photos.
Book Report: I've sent 3 books onto the publisher, while Susan, who is back editing, has 3 books to work on. Meanwhile, I continue to work on the "Fire and Ice" Saga- writing book 2 for the moment. Also writing notes for a few other books to work on when I finish the Fire & Ice" series. I hope to have "Rookie" and "Stronghold" ready for print by late Spring. These are the first two books in the "Cross and the Badge" series.
My four dogs love to watch me write, but mostly in hope I'll share with them some tidbit of food. I quit giving them peanut butter or chocolate candy once I read up on the poison it can be for dogs. But it sure doesn't make them happy.
I've mentioned this several times and how the similarities from my single book, "A Coming Storm", written originally 20 some yrs ago and now being written into a much larger series, has even more things happening in the present day. This concerns the development of the ASEAN, led by China, the new weapons now currently being tested by China that I used in "A Coming Storm" and numerous events that are taking place. Now I know I was not the only one to have dreams highlighting these items, dates and world conditions. In the last 20 some years I have learned of hundreds of people who have had similar dreams. But I'll let you think about it when you read "Fire & Ice". Volume 1 is actually Book #1-2 that I've put together and now working on Volume 2., which will probably be Books # 3-4.
Enough on my writing, I simply like to keep you all informed of what's coming.
I sincerely hope you all have had a truly wonderful Christmas. I love living here in Moose Pass, where Christmas time is white and we have all these wonderful mountains to look at. We are completely surrounded, except where the three passes cut through the ranges. Each pass can bring on its own wind storm, and this can often be a winter challenge. If you are wondering, check out the photos on line of all the repair work already completed on those section of highway damaged by the large quake. Out crews do work fast.
NOW, in closing I wish you ALL a truly wonderful HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! I also dearly hope the Good Lord will bless your coming New Year. May it be fruitful, wonderful and safe. God Bless one and all. BILL
