Kickstarter – Waiting


This Kickstarter thing might just be adding to the “waiting game” because now I am glued to the sky and the computer -one eye on each, watching for backers and snowflakes! I had a great idea though! What if I make snowflakes out of paper and decorate my dog house with them? Then at least when I am at home, it will feel wintery. The only problem is, I’m not very good with scissors! I’d probably be better off asking Sapphire the cat if she has any spare hair balls laying around. They’re white! Although she is a bit of a neat freak; I can’t imagine that she would keep such things on hand. That would be more of a Tepkins the frog type of thing to do and green scaly skin just doesn’t say “winter” to me.

Or maybe I’ll just go back to the seasonal bucket list and try to “work” through Fall. What’s next on the list? ….. “Go to a football game.” Well, let’s give that a shot – at least that involves people running and a little excitement. Maybe that will help to pass the time.

Let the football game begin!

P.S. I don’t think I can make Kickstarter backers out of paper! Or can I? Click HERE to go to! Or click HERE to read an article about “The First Snowflake of Winter” that came out on the USA Swimming page yesterday!


Kickstarter – Dreaming


Have you seen my video on Kickstarter yet? Check it out here!!

I think they really captured my likeness as I caught that snowflake. I love the effects! I stayed up watching the video over and over last night and drifted off mid-video, and the most exciting thing happened…

I had a dream that it snowed. The scarecrow looked more like a snow man when the storm passed. Fred the llama looked like a snow moose! It was so much fun and then …. I woke up. Isn’t it strange how a dream can feel so real you can almost taste it? When I woke, I couldn’t decide whether to be angry that it wasn’t real and the woods were still brown and crisp with the feeling of Fall or if I should be grateful that I had a little slice of wintery heaven. It takes too much energy to be mad for very long, so I guess I will be grateful and try to daydream about my dream last night. Is that even possible? Here’s trying …..

Let the daydreaming adventure begin!

P.S. There have been rumors of snow in the valley around where I am!! That’s a great sign, right? Or a cruel joke …

Kickstarter! Here we come….

In passing time, I stumbled upon Kickstarter. I was looking for inventors – hoping to find someone who created a “winter” machine or even a time machine. I didn’t find one, but I did find the coolest (no pun intended) group of forward-thinking people.  It gave me another idea …… what about doing the next book!?  So here we are, launching a Kickstarter campaign.  We are hoping to raise enough funds to hire our illustrator to create the pictures and enough to run the book in hardcover.  If nothing else, this will surely help pass the time to winter.

You can click here to see the cool video made especially for the Kickstarter campaign…


Let the adventure begin!!

Three Seasons to Go…

It is with a heavy heart that I state, “the final snow has melted from my woods.” In order to help pass the time during the next three (hopefully short) seasons, I will focus on my journal. I’m even going to try to occupy myself with Pinterest; everyone I talk to says that Pinterest is great for occupying time! I’m already on Facebook – all I have to do is make some friends. Here’s hoping this speeds the snow along or at least the time…

Let the adventure begin!
