In the trenches

I'm still trying to recover from the holidays. It's not easy when I still have the boys and their friends in the house...can you say 'toxic waste?' I am plugging away on the historical anthology which will have an appearance from Levet and I just finished up a story for the Mammoth Book of Regencies which includes some fabulous authors (I'll be writing under the name Alexandra Ivy). The weather's been so cold that it hasn't been worth getting out of the house :) On the plus side my enforced hibernation has led me to try a few new tv shows and I have to admit that I've fallen in love with Leverage!! And of course, I'm excited about the return of the Ghost Hunters International!

What about you all? Have you found a new show or author that's helped chase away the winter blues???

Hey Ms. Alex! Toxic waster, lol!!! I completely understand!
Way to go on your writing! Oh and you know I so can not wait for Levet's little story!! I love that little creature!

I have recently found Anya Bast this past month. As far as shows... hubby loves all the Ghost Hunter shows. Finding anything new... No.. I read or blog too much! LOL!!
Hope you have a great day hon!

If I can just get rid of hordes of people in my house I intend to sit down for a few hours and just read...sigh.

I found Shannon K. Butcher's The Sentinel Wars series. I'm on the waiting list at the library for the second one.

In the mean time I'm enjoying Embrace the Darkness...sound familiar :)

This kids still haven't gone back to school, Christmas break (can I say that on your blog?) seems to have been extended due to weather...I'm going a little crazy because of it.

I need to get them fed and occupied and then I can curl back up with Viper and Shay - yay!

Thanks for giving me something to do!

Alexandra Ivy said...

I hope I can give you a few hours away from the craziness :) Not only are the boys still here but the weather has been so crazy they don't want to get out of the house...oy. My cabinets are empty, my sink is filled with dishes, and my head throbbing. I need peace!

Alta said...

You could drive across the state and hang out with me...you may still be stuck inside, but at least the kids and the dishes won't be yours. That always makes a huge difference for me!

Alexandra Ivy said...

I've truly thought about taking shelter with my mother! She loves to cook and clean and all that other stuff...crazy woman! Then, of course, she calls to tell me she's headed to California. Sniff.

Alta said...

She may be crazy, but right now she sounds pretty smart!

I love Leverage. I first seen it when they had a marathon and now I am hooked. I just read the new release by Lora Adrian (vampires- great series). I am sure you have heard this before but the ONLY down side to reading series (which I LOVE LOVE) is that you have to WAIT forEVER for the next book. LOL. I am not good a waiting. Love your series and can't wait fot the next one. Happy New Year!!

Alexandra Ivy said...

Oh yes, I LOVE Lara Adrian's series :) We all have such excellent taste!

Alta said...

Looks like I need to add another author to my never ending list ;) You guys are such enablers.
BTW, love Cecile's blog. It's cold here, I'm surfing all over net today.

I live in Missouri, so getting out of the house has been a problem. Especially since my cars radiator has given out. I fell in love with Leverage as soon as it came out and I can't wait for next wednsday when the new season starts.

Alexandra Ivy said...

There's a Leverage marathon on Jan. 13. Since we were dumped with more snow and 35 mile an hour wind to pile it all in front of my door it looks like I'll still be locked in to watch it!

OH I love all the Ghost Hunter shows but GHI is my favorite of them all. Not really found any new shows that I have got addicted to I am mad as all get out that they are canceling my Dollhouse on fox tho grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Alexandra Ivy said...

You know I was mad with Fox when they cancelled the Sarah Conner Chronicles. They just don't have any taste...sigh.

JennJ said...

Girl I am right there with you that I was having a fit when I heard that they canceled TSCC and how they left it on that huge cliffhanger UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!
Sarah Conner Chron. and Dollhouse were my favorite shows. I can't stand Fox anymore they have no taste at all I whole heartedly agree grrr. Let's send the vamps and were's after them what do you say! lol ;)

I really like GHI myself and of course the original Ghost Hunters! Steve and Tango are just so funny. Like two peas in a pod.
