Happy New Year to You!

It's Wednesday, Jan. 2 and this is my first blog entry for the new year. I took the last two days off to basically hang out with my husband. But that doesn't mean I wasn't thinking about my book!! In fact, before we fell asleep last night, I got Mike to let me talk some of the plot details through with him. It's something I tend to do over the summer (when I am working full timeon my fiction) on Sunday nights, when I  am gearing up for another week of writing. Sometimes Mike contributes an idea, but really, the most helpful part for me is just talking things out. Like now, I am planning to write a fight scene between two boys and since Mike is a former boy, he had some insight into how these things go. 

We've had another major dump of snow in Montreal, so I'm still in my pajamas. I am meeting up later with a friend who's in from New York... I'd been hoping to drive her to the airport, but I've changed my plans on account of the snow. I'm going to jog downtown, take her for lunch, and then she'll take a cab to the airport -- and if I'm lively enough, I'll jog back home. My friend, by the way, is named Carole Wilbourn and she's a CAT THERAPIST!! I met her many years ago when I interviewed her for a Gazette story and we became friends. By the way, she's got a website, too. If you're into cats, or are just curious, you can check it out at: thecattherapist.com

Enjoy the snow if it's snowy where you are. And if it isn't, enjoy not having to shovel your way out the front door!

Happy New Year, Miss. Polak!!
There's plenty of fresh snow right outside my front and back doors that needs to be shovelled, so that will be fun... and I hope you manage to find clear sidewalks, like Tamar said. At least you have sidewalks! There aren't many around here (ie. the West Island). I think my cat would enjoy a therapist right now, as he has to learn to live with my cousin's pitbull, which we're "dog-siting" for the next few days...
