Just Another Random Monday

| February 28, 2011

(First, an explanation of random photo–we’re due storms today. I took this photo during a stormy walk last fall. Amazing sky!) Yay! Colin Firth and The King’s Speech won!  I’m so happy! I’ve always admired George VI, who stepped up to do a job replete with opportunities to face his worst fear. (Not that I […]

West Virginia Writers, Inc. Conference

| February 24, 2011

I received this note from Deborah Crim, and I thought I’d post–for writers who want to donate–and for writers who’d like to attend. West Virginia Writers, Inc. is the largest non-profit writers’ resource and service organization serving literary interests in West Virginia. We are founded on the fundamental principle that the written word is one […]

No-Remodel Wednesday

| February 23, 2011

So–yesterday went according to plan. Sort of. The beloved hung around the house with the guys installing granite and plumbing. (It’s gorgeous!) The girl and I jumped ship and ate hummus with capers, and all the delightful fixings, including soft, plump homemade pita. Mmmm! Then we shopped for mirrors. Why, yes, you’re right. That’s not […]

Tuesday, Tuesday

| February 22, 2011

More busy times. We have the granite guys coming today. Mirrors down, faucets and lighting at the ready. No replacement mirrors yet, though. The beloved loves to supervise when we have work done to the house, and I find it all a bit overwhelming. You know? As if you’re supposed to be showing up with […]

Random Monday

| February 21, 2011

Busy day ahead. Must buy fixtures for bathrooms. We’re replacing counters, lighting and mirrors, and I’ve worked myself into a state about the mirrors. The beloved tells me I’m nuts, but I’ll be ever so glad when that glass is somewhere out of the reach of humans. Last night I watched My Fair Lady. I […]

Monday, Monday–Happy V Day!

| February 14, 2011

I like Mondays. The grocery stores aren’t as crowded. The cafe at B&N has open tables–and I love the feeling of a fresh new week. Only this Monday is Valentine’s Day. Brace yourself for a possibly odd confession from a romance author. I don’t really get Valentine’s Day. So many expectations. Who can live up […]

Even later start!

| February 11, 2011

But I’m trying to blog regularly, so I’m posting anyway. We’ve been busy round here, redoing bathrooms. (Not DIY, though we do have to get mirrors off the wall. I’m so afraid our extremely cheap builder glued them to the walls, so I dread it!) Today, I had many bathroom-redo tasks to complete. Still have […]

Catching Up

| February 10, 2011

Again, it’s been a while. Not sure what happens–but I’ll tell you what’s happened since last I blogged.  🙂  In fact, I’ll post photos in no meaningful order. (Probably.) We went to Florida to look at condos on the beach. That seemed like such a good idea, until we considered how much work the ones […]
