Take the victories where you can...

Weather cool today. Winds came down from the north and made for temps in the 20s. Best revenge? A six pack on the back porch, imported beer at the ready.

Got close (maybe even finished) with final revisions on "Te Quiero," and "Herald Angel" today. More than ready to push both out the door and move on to something new.

Spent the day painting and insulating the new office. New HVAC up and running. Heat, at last! Going to be a tight window getting everything finished by month's end, but have faith it's going to happen.

Learned tonight my short story "Unseen" was named a finalist in the Tucson Festival of Books.
