August Wrap-Up & September Goals

The spouse and I spent a good chunk of August on the road, visiting friends in Atlanta and family in Florida. We stayed as safe as possible (even if we were the only ones wearing a mask in many, many gas stations), but had to treat ourselves to a trip to Kennedy Space Center whileContinue reading “August Wrap-Up & September Goals”

July Wrap-Up & August Goals

First, the obvious news that I’ve been shouting about for a month now: Steel Justice (Steel Empires #6) is live! I’ve already heard from a few people how much they are enjoying my take on a murder mystery set in my urban fantasy/alternate history universe, so I hope you give it a chance, too. Amazon | BarnesContinue reading “July Wrap-Up & August Goals”

May Wrap-Up & June Goals

It’s a gorgeous day outside, and summer is my favorite season, so I’m here to celebrate a great month and look forward to an even better one. I am now fully vaccinated, so I got to hang out with my best friend in person for the first time in nearly 18 months, along with planningContinue reading “May Wrap-Up & June Goals”

April Wrap-Up & May Goals

It’s been a quiet month here at Casa Siamese, with all the big news over in the spouse’s department.

February Wrap-Up & March Goals

February is already a short month, and being productive made it feel even shorter. Or maybe that was the old-fashioned cold that laid me up for a week of it. Major changes lately include settling into my new multi-computer setup for officially working from home full-time, setting up the new mattress and bed frame thatContinue reading “February Wrap-Up & March Goals”

January Wrap-Up & February Goals

We thought 2021 would be low-key. Isn’t that cute? Instead, there have been some major ups and downs that distracted me from my goals. On the other hand, I also got some great news about my day job–the pandemic proved that we do not need a central office to function, which means my permanent teleworkContinue reading “January Wrap-Up & February Goals”

A Year in Reading: 2020

As usual, I set my Goodreads Reading Challenge for the year to 50 books. That’s about a book a week, and combined with novellas and graphic novels, I usually end up with a final tally of around 100 books. Not bad. Makes me feel like something in my life is productive, and reading will alwaysContinue reading “A Year in Reading: 2020”

December Wrap-Up & January Goals

Hey, we did it! If you’re reading this, we survived the train wreck that was 2020. I sincerely hope that your loved ones fared as well, and that we all do much better in 2021. I’m keeping expectations low and assuming that I’m in for another year doing a lot of reading and playing videoContinue reading “December Wrap-Up & January Goals”

September Wrap-Up & October Goals

Another month of this crazy year has come and gone. The spouse and I escaped to Atlanta for a week, to socially distance with friends who also work from home. It was absolutely lovely and reminded me how much I miss conventions this year. The TARDIS drove and charged beautifully on its first road trip,Continue reading “September Wrap-Up & October Goals”
