I just wanted to post a quick note to say that I’ll be taking a hiatus from the blogs. Last week, we found out our cat, Elfie, had cancer. Only a few days later, on Sunday morning, she passed away. It’s Thanksgiving here in Canada, but unfortunately at our house we aren’t feeling very festive. Elfie was part of our family for sixteen and a half years, and we'd had her since she was a kitten. My husband and I adopted her and her sister from our local SPCA the first year we were married, so we’re finding this very difficult. I’ve needed a break for quite a while now, and this seems like the appropriate time. I’m not sure how long I’ll be away, but I wish you all luck in your writing endeavors in the meantime.
