Welcome to October! The weather the last few days has been very nice and perfect for getting out for some fall yard clean-up and walks. I confess I haven’t done much on the yard clean-up (yet), but I’ve been loving the nature walks. Do you enjoy fall weather? What’s your favorite part? I think I love the colors and the cooler temperatures.
About two weeks ago, I came across a beautiful new walking path in my city and came across this:
(And yes, I was standing that close.) It is actually pretty common to see a lot of deer in the city forested areas. People don’t feed them so they are wild, but I guess because people are respectful, the deer are pretty calm and don’t mind us walking by.
For those who’ve been loving my adventures in kitten fostering, I returned the three shades about a week ago, and got a mama and her six kittens. “Wait! What? Did you say SIX???” (you ask). Yes, six and it gets even better. The kittens were only six days old when I got them. They are absolutely adorable and in the, almost, week that I’ve had them, they’ve doubled in size and most of their eyes are fully open. It is so fun taking care of them and the mama is an absolute sweetheart. Since the mama’s name is Esther, which means star, I decided to go with star themes for the kittens’ names. One kitten, who is a little escape artist and squiggled out of the nesting box on day seven of her life, I’ve named Bellatrix (part of the Orion constellation) which means ‘female warrior’.
For the last few months, I’ve been busy building up my Patreon platform. I haven’t said anything about it, but it is ready for a reveal. I know a bunch of you love the short stories I post monthly on my webpage, but I won’t be posting one there this month as my focus is on Patreon! There are videos, look behind-the-scenes posts for my published works, games, a new survey (more to come), and more great content is coming in October (like a novella). Plus I’ll be uploading chapters for one of my not yet published novels. So for those who love reading, you’ll find a growing treasure trove to satisfy your interests.
Check out a new release coming this November:
It’s a super cute story and perfect for fans of Hallmark-type stories with a touch of superhero. The author has a few series dedicated to these superhero stories, so check out her Amazon author page: H. L. Burke
Thanks for reading and being a part of the community. My next newsletter will be out in November.
As always, stay connected by sending an email. It’s always great to hear from you. And check out my Patreon page. I’d love to hear your thoughts or engage with you there.
Wishing you the very best!
