Thursday January 10th. Promises.

And they are already talking Ice Skating…. We are promised frost starting tomorrow and clear skies. Ever since I arrived here on the last day of September it has rained nearly every day. I left the Pacific N.W. for s specific reason. Ever since I arrived in Holland in 2009 the weather turned dry and sunny. And when I left in July 2010, May 2011 and April 2012 it turned nasty.

I am attempting to upload my manuscript to a Robot at the self publishing arm of Amazon, it is called “Create Space”. It is a tedious process for the 286 pages. When just a letter moves in the wrong parameter you have to start all over again. I also have an index for about 300 names named in the book and when a page changes I have to adjust it again. Fortunately there is a trick that automatically renumbers the chapter index. After I get this down to a science I’ll be tempted to think up a new writing project.

Blanda is starting to get used to me. She is a very easy and thankful dog. If it snows I’ll never find her back in the woods. Maybe I’ll have to spray paint her then.
