Hello everyone here in Wealthy Affiliate!

I slept a little later than usual, but then the night was cold, and I was warm under the blankets with Kitty nestled right under them with me! When it was finally time to get up, I didn't really want to, but I am glad that I did.

Monica had to go into work at 6 am this morning since someone had called off, so I didn't expect to hear from her anytime soon, but she did call around 9 am, so that was nice. She also told me she would call at 12 pm too. She will get off earlier today from work, which will be a good thing.

I jumped right into the Wealthy Affiliate Community to get my first daily habit accomplished.

Kitty actually followed me in to assist, as well, and that made it even better.

When I was finished with that initial foray, I wrote a little more in my Kindle Vella Episode #15, which will be the final episode in my first Kindle Vella story. This will likely be the first of many, because it has been a grand and experience.

This will be the bulk of my daily Wealthy Affiliate research portion of the day. If all goes well it will be published by tomorrow.

I also started a fire since it was still a bit cold.

That started out pretty well.

I talked to Samantha on the phone, and it seems that the Blog Dogs are settling in nicely, and that is a good thing too!

There they are snuggling together in the new dog bed. They have also been running around in the big yard and have been walked twice. Samantha said that went well, until Shadow saw a cat!

Finally, it was time for me to venture outside and capture some images of the new day, including the title image.

We still had not reached even 30 degrees by this time, but the sunny day made it feel more tolerable, so that was a good thing.

I must admit that the day looked better than expected before I walked out the front door.

I could not have asked for anything more, save for some higher temperatures.

I also performed a few tasks outside too. I picked up some twigs from the yard, and went through organizing some more of the firewood, as well. I also used some of it to keep the fire going today in the house.

It was still going very well when my buddy, Kevin called me on his way to work. Sadly, he got hit with a double shift tonight.

While I was sitting in the truck talking to him, I captured a couple more images of the late afternoon.

The sun was heading past its apex, and will be setting in a few hours.

All in all, it has, and will continue to be a good day. We will have some more cold temps tonight though.

Monica also called me again from work and we talked for about 20 minutes. She will be off around 4:30 today, if all continues going well.

The rest of my evening will be spent on the phone with a friend or two, and likely my mother when she gets off work. I will also be on the computer off and on for the evening too.

I will continue doing some more clean-up in the eBay house. It truly needs it. I am also planning--although, I am not sure I will get it all done--to add some more eBay listings to my eBay store!

I will have the locksmith billings taken care of and will likely drop them off in the postal drop tomorrow.

It sounds like another good day, Jeff. And that the Blog Dogs still have a Good Home. :D

I am glad you are having Good, if chilly, Days, Jeff.

Here are my plans for my book. I told this to Mandie/Mombee.

I am seriously thinking of publishing it on Kindle Vella where the first three parts (I think) are free. But then you have to buy credits/tokens(?) to be able to get later parts. At least till my first book is done, then publishing it as an Ebook and probably paperback, maybe even a few hardbacks. And following that route till done. The first three parts will be three separate storylines that I pull together for the first paid-for installment, I hope. :)

What do you think?

Soon as I am done with notifications I am signing off. I have to get up early.

Rest Well.


It certinly was, and the Blog Dogs are getting settled right back in JD.

It was vhilly, but it was still a very good day.

Yes, that is right. The cool thing is oyu can write 500 words per episode up to 5,000 words per episode, so you can make the episodes as short as you like to stretch things out if necessary.

That sounds like a good idea, my friend. At least try it out and see how you like it.

Have a good evening, my friend! Feel free to PM me if you have any additional questions! I should have my 15th episode finished and published some time tomorrow!

Sleep well!


Thank You, Jeff.

I went to bed at about 9:30 and woke up and can't go back to sleep. :p

Going to do some searches and then try again. Rest Well.


I get that way sometimes too, JD! I finished KV#15, and will publish it today! Then, I am thinking about starting another KV story! We shall see!

Enjoy your Sunday!


I got back to sleep about midnight and slept till my alarm went off at 4:30. Got my early morning thing done and back home to take dad to church, fell asleep in church, then back home. Tried to nap. didn't happen.

So now here on WA. Might try to work on my book.


You should work on your book if you can, JD! I squeeze that in when ever I can!


I am working on poems for my book. YYou remember "Listen"? I am working on two more in that vein. Each one will accompany each of the first three parts of my book.


That sounds like a Great idea, JD!


Going to PM you.

I just responded, JD!



You're very welcome, JD! You've got something there in your stories, my friend!


I appreciate your help and feedback, Jeff.


You're very welcome, JD! PM me anytime, my friend! You've got this though!



Going to sign off for bed. I am beat.


Sleep well, JD! I'll be right behind you shortly!


I did. :)

I'm very glad to hear that, JD! Enjoy the start to your new week!


You too, Jeff. :)

I am, so far, JD! Keep writing and succeeding!


working on it. :)


Awesome, JD! That's how we succeed!


I might not be able to get on line much. Computer issues. Will try to reply.

No worries, JD. I hope you get those computer issues solved!


We are working on them. :)


I hope it works out for you soon, JD!


Thanks, Jeff.

Going to sign off shortly.

Goodnight, rest well.


You sleep well too, JD!


Sounds like a chilly day there, Jeff! I can relate as we had cold winds. Glad to hear the blog dogs are settling in nicely. Now Kitty has everywhere all to herself once again. Stay warm. Have a great evening!

Susan 🐶😹🐶

It sure was, Susan! I am happy that they are getting the attention and care that they deserve now, Susan, they should have never been banished to the eBay house! All in the past, at least for right now. Kitty has still been sticking close to hwere she was banned to for two years, but she has ventured out a couple of times too.

You have a Great evening too!


Nice post Jeff. It's great to see the dogs and kids happy to be back home.

Looking a bit nippy out there.

We hit 70 but muggy, with rain coming tonight, however not like the last one we had.

Unfortunately, the folks in the state of Southern California will be getting hit by the center of it. Sadly that area is already pretty saturated. We still have massive like never before yards deep of snow to be concerned for that eventually will melt so this ain't over yet.

My garden is going to be a month behind now with this. Oh well, it's a welcome sacrifice for what we've had to endure for a very long time. $200 water bills and $300 electric have been hard to swallow lately. For only 2 people in a small house.

Ok my wonderful friend it's time to get some dinner started and back to another High -End product review. I'm pretty jazzed too about my new PPC Challenge from Kyle new website and article were indexed only 3 days after setting it up.

Luck of the Irish crawler. Be well and stay happy.

I see K-State has Kentucky tomorrow. Good Luck. My Bruins have Northwestern today. Princeton keeps upsetting teams too. Kansa lost to Ar-Kansas today by 1. -K-State highlights yesterday

I am very happy that they have settled back in so well, David!

It was a bit nippy--we only made it to 30 degrees today.

I feel real bad for all those people. I've seen the news, and it has been catastrophic!

Wow, those are some stellar bills, so I can certainly understand that!

I wished I would have had the budget to take that, but good on you. I'm sure it will be a success!

Wow, I'll have to check out the replay on the Kansas game, but I was happy my Wildcats survived the first round. They call it March Madness for a reason!

Have a nice evening, my friend!


It's not in my budget but we don't have a fireplace with gas heating and electricity overcharging out here, doesn't avail many options. We'll be fine eventually it will warm up. We only use the heater at night, too.

Enjoying the basketball too. Lots of upsets already. Seems like Kansas get's upset every year.

Lot's of upsets for sure, David! I'll see how K-State fares against Kentucky tomorrow!

Have a pleasant evening!


Hi Jeff, my friend, how are you?

Do you feel weird without

Everything else seems to be under control, but it still needs to be maintained 🔥

Greetings to you,

I am fine, and not at all, Slavka! They are in a much better place once again, after almost two years, and I know that they were being well cared for, something I simply could not do.

I have a fire burning here mainly because this might be the last extreme cold, and I am burning up twigs and odd shaped logs today! All is well!

I hope you had a Great day!


Okay Jeff,
I'm glad everything is fine.

It was a good and exciting day for me, now I'm listening to the blues and chilling.

Yes, indeed, Slavka, and I am very glad to hear that you had a good one too, my friend!


That's funny, Jeff - That everything was going well, until Shadow saw a cat! 🐶🐶

Nice weather in your neighborhood. And good to see that you're being productive too. But remember - it's still the weekend. It's okay to rest a little bit.

Have a great FriSatSu! 😎🐶🐱🐶

Isaiah 😊

He always tries to chase cats, which was why Kitty was relegated to three rooms of the house while he and Star were incarcerated guests here. She is about 14 years old, and I did not need her being antagonized by him.🙀

It looks like pretty good weather, but I think we only made it to 30 degrees today.

I hope your Frisatsu has been excellent! 🐶😹🐶😎


I'm glad the blog dogs are settling in nicely. I'll admit I felt they were a nice fit for you, and hope you aren't missing them a lot. I got the sense from your YouTube videos Monica gets exasperated with them when they are underfoot.

Looks like a good day there.

Oh, I had bacon sammiches yesterday. You inspired me to get some, hah hah.



They still are, Jason! They were in my blogs when they were pups and I lived there with them. They are back home after about 2 years of being banished too, but sadly, I am not, but I am glad they are being well cared for again, something that I was not able to do as much at a house that was never meant to be lived in again so soon. It needs a complete remodel, something that my finances cannot currently support.

I am glad you had some bacon sandiches. That might be on tap for me tomorrow! YUM!

Hope you are having / had a Great day!
