I think we’re saying goodbye to the #@#%&* summer. After months of excessive heat and gasping drought, we’re finally getting rain! In fact we were under a flood watch yesterday. The temperatures dropped like a lovely, magical cooling stone. (That doesn’t make sense. You know, I’d like to at least write a blog post without […]

Work and Play

| September 21, 2011

Writing this post is part of my work day. I usually post at night, but schedule for the early morning hours. After a day of writing, doing what is essentially a journal entry clears my mind for the next day. Wonder where my senior English teacher from high school is now. She started us on […]

Delay of Gratification

| September 19, 2011

I’m a patient woman. I don’t usually notice crying children in restaurants/on planes until someone else (naming no names) gives me the squirrely-eyed, help-me-escape look. I can explain how to restore all the programs my beloved deletes from his phone without getting testy because I’ve told him how to restore them forty times before. (His […]

Hello, Friday!

| September 16, 2011

How nice to see you! Except I have a busy weekend. I still need to write, so I’ll be leaving the laptop on to eye me with disapproval if I ignore it.  🙂 Last night, the temperature suddenly dropped, and it was so cool I could walk in my neighborhood. My girl and I went […]

Random Wednesday

| September 14, 2011

Starting first with a check on Autumn because the temps have climbed again. Apparently, we’re due to break records today–most days ever in the 90s–which means most days ever with heat indexes in the triple digits. (To be fair to the weather gods, the humidity has lessened with the changing tilt of the sun.) Isn’t […]

Arsenic and Old Lace–RIP VI

| September 13, 2011

I pledged to watch Arsenic and Old Lace as part of the Peril on the Screen challenge for R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril VI. With Cary Grant, it can’t help being romantic, but it’s also about family and mayhem, and for a writer, it shares a few home truths. (There’s a beat cop who patrols outside the […]

Love just may be Everlasting…

| September 12, 2011

My friend, Kimberly Dean, has a new release, and I can’t wait to read it! Everlasting is available at Amazon and at Barnes & Noble. When Chevon takes an impulsive road trip, she doesn’t expect to stumble across her distant past. Lost in a thick, unpredictable fog, she finds the Everlasting Inn. The remote house […]

Ten Years Ago

| September 11, 2011

The world was different. No one had flown an airplane into buildings where innocent people were working. No one had watched people they loved die because airplanes had flown into towers and the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania. Like many of our country’s citizens, our family lost someone we knew. He was my husband’s […]

Random Thursday

| September 8, 2011

Random bits of flotsam in my head! The last three days (after the tornados whirled past us), have been amazing. Low temperatures, beautiful rain and clouds (after months of drought), and I’ve been walking in my neighborhood, instead of on the treadmill. The leaves are beautiful, the rain is my own private sprinkler, and the […]

Without a Clue–RIP VI

| September 7, 2011

I accidentally watched a movie that fits the rules of the Readers Imbibing Peril VI, Peril on the Screen challenge. Sort of. 🙂  It’s a favorite around our house, but I hardly ever meet anyone else who’s heard of it. My girl was feeling in need of a little cheering up so we watched Without […]
