Monday Migraine and Polishing, Polishing…

| August 31, 2009

We’re having all kinds of rain and I love it, but my sinuses are such great barometers, I’m wasting my time not being a fisherman. I know long before the weather channels when one should stay in for a storm!  I digress–which is what I do best during migraines. The US Open is on this […]

When a Rose is not a Rose

| August 29, 2009

Any other name just won’t always work in a romance. If you can’t love your hero/heroine’s name, the story becomes difficult to write. My heroine’s name is Ava, and for some reason, it’s always bothered me. Now, it’s gone from bothering me to stopping me every time I type it. (Which probably means there’s a […]

Busy Friday

| August 28, 2009

Loving the rain, loving the cooler temps, may take a cool swim!  🙂 Ran out early to do errands, but I suddenly discover I can’t do laundry unless I want to wash the duds in dishwashing detergent.  Hmmm. Wonder if that would work? I’d better not try as I don’t want to explain the flood […]

Suddenly, a Spam Magnet

| August 26, 2009

I seem to be a spam target all of a sudden so I’ve put the comments on moderation. Please, leave a comment–it’ll show up. I just have to approve it first–which I’ll happily do unless you’re a spammer. What is the matter with people?  Who gets any good stuff out of spam?  Someone who has […]

Catching Up

| August 25, 2009

I usually go to the beach in the fall. It’s my favorite time of year for a beach visit. Not going this year, but it’s on my mind, so I’m posting a photo of last year’s beach. Today is random day again. All my stuff to do doesn’t really connect. Get car washed. I am […]

Home Again

| August 24, 2009

I’ve just been in Texas for some exceedingly happy family time!  Everything was wonderful. Warmth and welcome and amazing food and so much laughter I think my cheeks are still sore. Only one fly in the ointment. Who knew it could get hotter and hotter during the night when the day has been at 100+? […]

Oops–Late Start

| August 18, 2009

Busy week around here. Sorry. However, I do have something cool to share. Because this is Harlequin’s 60th anniversary, they’re doing an exhibition of Mills & Boon and Harlequin covers.  These are some photos they’ve posted online. I hope you’ll enjoy as much as I do. They start in the 20s and come all the […]

Finally, Something to Post About

| August 17, 2009

So–the girl and I are watching Phineas and Ferb and Cash Cab–you know–getting our culture on! And the question on CC was about Caterpillar.  My girl confided a childhood story. Apparently, one day when “they” were doing construction on her elementary school’s playground, her teacher warned the children that the construction company had left a […]

Saturday, in the Meeting

| August 15, 2009

Off to hang out with my fellow writer friends. That’ll be a good day, and usually there’s a signing afterward.  (Shhh. Don’t tell the people who fear the tottering bookshelves in my abode.) Only 66 degrees outside at 8:10 in the a.m. That must mean the seasons are really going to change soon. When I […]

Wahoooo! It’s Friday!

| August 14, 2009

Mind you, that doesn’t mean as much when you work from home. The work is always there. You can’t really close the office door because with writing, so much of your office is in your head. Demanding to be let out.  🙂 Nevertheless, it’s Friday, and tomorrow, my local writer’s group meets, and I’m going. […]
