Seeing Red

It's post holiday and I'm in the stage where my home is a giant mess from the things I didn't get to before I had to travel.

And, I can't do a thing about it right now.

All I can do is wonder if and when my nose may stop bleeding.

This isn't new for me. I used to get bloody noses all the time as a child. 

One time, it was so bad my parents almost had to bring me to the hospital. That one was after jumping into our pool. 

I suspect I am getting this one because of the dryness from home heating. All I can do is lubricate once it stops. 

And it has. Finally. I just need to give it a moment before I put anything up there.

I suppose it's that time of the year where one should just relax anyway, but after reading a friend's blog post on Goodreads I discovered I used to have my own blog connected, but never updated it when I changed its home. I've now fixed that.

This is likely all the progress I will achieve this week as I get my booster shot tomorrow and my arm is likely to be sore at the very least. The previous ones made it hard to lift my arm much at all. And I know some people who have had it hit them much harder than the first two shots did, so we'll see how it goes for me.

Here's my Goodreads in case you're wondering about it: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/15072512.Rae_Roy

I hope everyone has a wonderful New Year's despite the current reality.

Under Siege

My city is under attack. I wish I was being facetious.  The so-called "freedom" convoy is here and so far this is what has transpired: 1. They parked on the war memorial. These people who call themselves patriots. This is where the Unknown Soldier rests. This is where Corporal Nathan Cirullo lost his life in October of 2014. The cars were towed, but who knows what actual repercussions they will face. 2. Later, when asked to move away from memorial, one stood and jumped on the tomb itself while others cheered.  3. Despite having port-a-potties provided for by the mayor, they've been defecating on Parliament Hill, in snowbanks, and on streets nearby.  4. Flags being flown include the Confederate flag of the United States, Trump flags, the Quebec equivalent to the Confederate flag, upside down Canada flags, regular Canada flags, Fuck Trudeau flags, libertarian flags, and ones adorned with swastikas. Yeah, this is totally about freedom rather than racism, white su

A Lot of Bullspit - 2020 ROW80 R3-W5

This week has had a lot of bullspit in it. Shortly after my last trip to buy reno supplies, I discovered mold in my bathroom. While that's not shocking, it's pretty much because they appear to have left wet drywall in the wall and covered the wall with another layer of drywall instead of properly repairing it after a leak. Geniuses. This is a mixed bag. It means I may have to do the tub area sooner than I expected. It is the same wall as the annoying peeling paint, so that's kind of good. I may just need to replace much of the wall, which is about 1.5 drywall boards because it's a small room. Cost wise, the wall repair isn't so bad. I'm not looking forward to having to deal with it, but I acquired the PPE gear for it and the mold removal supplies. Now, here's where the project may change substantially. I was originally planning to install a tub surround over the tile and then use the Rust Oleum tub restore stuff, but if there is mold in the wall, it's li

OIW - Book Cover Design Seminar

On May 22nd, I went to a seminar on book cover design. Before the information was presented on design, the author of Imposter Bride, Nancy Richler , read part of her first chapter and the story sounds intriguing. Lately, I am preferring to read the work of other Ottawa-area authors. Perhaps someday it will be my book that they read in turn. Currently, I am reading The Crimson Man by Patricia K McCarthy and though it is not in my genre, it is a fiery read. Ladies, you'll enjoy it. So far it feels heated like 50 Shades of Grey, but with more substance and a higher level of writing skill. At the beginning of the meeting, announcements were made about newly published works by members of the Ottawa Independent Writers group. The Autism Story is written as fiction by a university professor that specializes in the area. It sounds interesting as well. Nancy Richler answered questions about publishing after she completed her reading. Here is what I took from it: 1. Avoid small pr
