Spring


Spring in Northern Ontario is a mysterious thing.
A week before this, the crocuses were free of snow and blooming nicely.
We'll see what happens next!

We've got some serious medical issues with a few family members taking up a lot of our time and energy right now, so I may not be out and about as often as I'd like.

At times like this, I'm glad I write romance - all HEAs are very welcome right now! :)

How's spring treating you so far?

  2. Sorry to hear about your family members. Sending good wishes your way!

    Crocuses are so hardy--I'm thinking they'll come through the snow just fine. :)

  5. Hugs and prayers for you and your family members. When the buttercups show their heads around here it means we'll probably have at least a dusting of snow. Love the crocuses.

  8. My best to you and your family, and here's hoping for quick and happy resolutions to the difficulties.

    Plows going up my street as I type this, and it's zero--ZERO!!!--Fahrenheit right now. (makes sound like Lurch from "The Addams Family")

  14. Hi Jemi,

    I'm very sorry to read that some of your family have some medical issues. Your priority, is, of course, the welfare of your beloved family.

    May the eventual spring bring happier times, Jemi.

  15. Hi, Jemi,

    So sorry to hear about your family. Nothing worse. For the past four months, I was nursing a new puppy. WE finally found out he has food allergies. Poor puppy.

    WE are cold here. Chicago is still in winter, even after the 70 degree tease we had on Sunday. It was VERY short lived.

    Good news, one of my short stories is coming out at the end of May. Happy to be in an incredible anthology with over thirty amazing writers!

    1. Michael - thank you. It's really, really tough right now. We're a few hours north of Chicago, and it sounds like our weather is kind of similar. Hope that sun starts peeking out more often.

      Congrats on the story! That's an awesome group of authors in the anthology!
