My Four-legged Babies
Missy Tippens here. I was blogging on Wednesday at Novel Journey, and I talked about my writing partner, Duke. He's the black and white spotted baby sitting by my feet in this photo. He always sits curled up beside me while I work on my laptop in the family room. And when it's cool, he likes to sit right on top of my feet! It's so nice to have a writing buddy. It's also nice to have warm feet. :)
I also have a chocolate lab, Libby. She's not as clingy as Duke but makes an appearance when she's hungry.
I adore being able to work at home. I hang out in my p.j.'s and pray no one rings the doorbell! :) I can also eat at my computer during lunch if I like. And I have flexibility in my schedule if my kids have appointments or events at school. This career is my dream come true! I think the dogs like it, too.
Speaking of career... I have a new book out now! A Forever Christmas. Here's a back cover blurb:
Sarah Radcliffe’s quiet Christmas back in her hometown will be lost if she agrees to direct the church’s Christmas pageant. But when she meets two little boys determined to gain their father’s attention, Sarah agrees to help. Then she discovers that the dad in question is Gregory Jones, the man she loved and lost.
The single dad is working himself to the bone to give his boys the Christmas of their dreams, when all they want is some family time. Time that includes a new mommy. If Sarah can learn to open her heart, she may receive the most wonderful present of all—a family of her own.
Okay, your turn! Do any of you work at home? If you're retired, do you have pets who keep you company?
