Working, Working, Working

| January 26, 2010

I’m a little startled to be awake as I nodded off over the laptop–finally–at sometime after 6:27 this morning. I was supposed to meet friends today for lunch, but that didn’t work out so I’m back at the coffee shop, laptop in front of me, beloved dose o’caffeine at my side. I’ve been reading a […]

Working at Panera

| January 25, 2010

Because my house is so crowded and distracting. I’m still working on the new book. I love this story–and I hope readers will see it one day. However, I definitely need a native Italian speaker. For now, the one thing that really worries me is staying in because I need it as is, and I’ve […]

Already Wednesday

| January 20, 2010

Not sure how that happened. We have new light fixtures that make me go awwww. Especially in the dining room. I love our dining room. The experts (all right, my mentor group–HGTV) tell you to go with neutrals, but we went with a deep shade of blue that makes me smile every time I get […]

Stunned to find we have Internet access, I believe it’s time for a random thought day. (Okay, so I haven’t been asleep and random is about the best I can do.) How many cups of coffee do you pour yourself before you drink a full cup? (Waste = Bad, so I’m not confessing–just wondering if […]

Happy New Year! Resolutions, Anyone?

| January 2, 2010

I don’t make them. I don’t actually like them. I get along and I’m responsible, and things work out as they’re supposed to until I get all resolved about something. So–I resolve to avoid beating myself senseless with the pressure of a resolution. I was going to post a photo of my kitty, resolving to […]
