and I can feel a certain fellow writer smacking me through the air. lol HI Paula! 🙂

Seriously though, I’m catching some odd word usage, and adding in some things to hopefully make it flow better. Not to mention get rid of some dialogue that I don’t know what I was thinking? lol

I’m up to revising Chapter 21 now.  😀 woot! I finally checked, I have 32 chapters written, and I still need to do a few more for this story to end. Well…until the sequel and yep, I’ve started the out line for that one as well.  woohoo! 😀

till later, back to revising. Chapter two will be posted on Saturday, since Alex is a kitty girl, I’ve decided to post on Caturdays. LOL =^.^= meow    Besides this Friday I’ve something fun planned! 😉

and if you’re not following my creative blog, I asked a question there earlier. Who wants to see Alex dressed up as Wonder Woman? I’m going to do it anyway, I’m just curious to whether people want to see it when finished. 😉

so till later kittens

xoxo

Wow!

General Events:
National I’m Not Going to Take It Anymore Day
January 7, 2015 in the USA
I’m Not Going To Take It Anymore Day is when we can fight back against all the injustices inflicted upon us.
Sometimes it takes utter frustration, boiling point anger or deep sadness to say enough is enough. Today choose something that you’re not going to take anymore. Whether it is a situation at work, your job itself, a bad relationship or a dangerous habit, choose one thing that you’re not going to take and do something about it.

Old Rock Day 2015
January 7, 2015 in the World
Old Rock Day is an opportunity to enjoy and appreciate old rocks and fossils. Perhaps you can start a rock collection. You can go out on a field trip in search of old fossils (the rock kind). Or, if you choose, you can just play with old rocks.
By definition, fossils are old rocks. Jewelry stones are old rocks. And, coal is an old rock, too. You can celebrate any or all of these old rocks today.
The rocks on Canada’s Baffin Island have been around for 4.5 billion years, back when the earth was a fiery magma ball.
Acknowledge a rock today … and encourage it to rock on . . .or maybe turn it into a pet!

Distaff Day 2015
January 7, 2015 in the World
Distaff Day is observed on January 07, 2015. Distaff Day, also called Roc Day, is the day after the feast of the Epiphany. It is also known as Saint Distaff’s Day, one of the many unofficial holidays in Catholic nations. Many St. Distaff’s Day gatherings were held, large and small, throughout local fiber community. The distaff, or rock, used in spinning was the medieval symbol of women’s work. In many European cultural traditions, women resumed their household work after the twelve days of Christmas. Women of all classes would spend their evenings spinning on the wheel. During the day, they would carry a drop spindle with them. Spinning was the only means of turning raw wool, cotton or flax into thread, which could then be woven into cloth. Men have their own way of celebrating this occasion; this is done through Plough Monday. It is the first Monday after Epiphany where men are supposed to get back to work.

National Tempura Day
January 7, 2015 in the USA
It’s National Tempura Day! Tempura is a delicious deep fried Japanese dish made with lightly battered vegetables and seafood. The original cooking technique is actually attributed to the Portuguese, who landed in Japan in the sixteenth century to establish new trade routes.
The word “tempura” is also related to the European roots of the dish. It comes from the Latin phrase “quattuor tempora” meaning “Ember Days.” This term refers to the days when Catholics eat fish or vegetables instead of meat.
Tempura batter is made with cold water and wheat flour. Some recipes also call for eggs, baking soda, oil, or spices for extra flavoring. A traditional tempura will usually include shrimp, scallops, eggplant, green beans, sweet potato, mushrooms, or bamboo.
To celebrate National Tempura Day, try making your own tempura at home or head out to your favorite Japanese restaurant!
