The melt

robinsnowI knew a little domestic alchemy would get some spring in the air! We’ll get to 53° today. Yay, that means I can clean closets. That’s typically a dusty job and I’ve been waiting on warmer weather to do it.  To deal with any dust I need to put fans in the windows blowing out and I must wear a particle mask.

Before you picture me living in a complete sty, my house is only as dusty as the average house is.  It’s just that after that relentless run of pneumonia, the doctor says I have to avoid dust. It’s been far too cold to open the house. Some fresh air will be nice.

Then guess what? 1 to 3 inches of snow rolling in for tomorrow!! Gaaaaaa!!


I’ve temporarily cut back on blogging cleanfor my put-my-life-back-in-order spring cleaning — a project known far and wide as the Annual Purge. Thanks for stopping by even if there isn’t much to see. I have no time for blogging right now, but the extinct word of the day is updated daily.


Another 100 Things Blogging Challenge! For 100 days, I’ll post something from my chosen topic: Words on the Verge of Extinction. There are 33 entries to come.

Here’s one for today:

Download your copy of my free 1st and 2nd chapter sampler, I write what I’d like to read so my stories are rich in realistic/historically correct dialogue and factual information. My multidimensional characters are the sort you’d welcome into your home to share a cup of tea or a beer. Though I wouldn’t open the door to the villains…


Coming soon~

I’ll be blogging full bore in April with the A to Z Challenge. I’ve started my list already — my topics will cover fascinating aspects from history. I have a healthy sense of wonder. I promise your imagination will fly with mine.

For ten days in April I’ll be in the Authors in Bloom blog hop on one of my satellite blogs. It’s all about showing those many facets authors have outside of their novels. Many years ago, my husband and I led wild foods programs for Chicago’s Field Museum and I’ll be sharing my recipes.

    Glad you’re getting on with the spring cleaning, Rose – this is the first spring-like day we’ve had yet, although it’s still cold!

    Is the snow after spring cleaning the winter equivalent of raining after you wash your car?
