Last time I blogged here, a couple of months ago, I talked about the viral pandemic sweeping not only
, but the world.
In that respect, not much has changed--except for that disease to not only
continue, but to increase. Knobcone
But I'm still here. So are my two shops--Barkery and Biscuits, the one where I sell healthy treats for dogs that I create as a veterinary technician, and Icing on the Cake, where I bake and sell human treats.
Yes, they're still here. We're still here--my wonderful dog Biscuit and I. But my helpers are on leave most of the time, for their safety. And although I continue baking, people generally place their orders by email or phone, and then come to my stores to pick up their treats. And then I wash my hands and everything else very carefully.
So, yes, life goes on. My stores go on. Biscuit and I go on. And I do spend some time at my veterinary clinic as a vet tech, too, since other pets go on as well, and need care. Plus, I see my guy Dr. Reed Storme there--and elsewhere, too.
And, in case you don't know it, this is a very special time. It's the Killer Characters Cozy Mystery Spring Fling. I haven't solved a murder for a while, which may be a good thing. But I am giving away a copy of my most recent story, For A Good Paws, to one person who comments on this post.
So, please comment here and briefly say what you are doing these days. The person who monitors my posts, or one of her dogs, will pick the winner.
