Monday, Monday

| April 30, 2012

What a lovely weekend. We’ve done all we can do on the renovation so I didn’t feel guilty about not working on it. I read a book for a friend on Friday and Saturday. Also on Saturday, another friend called with this question. “I have tickets for the matinee of Les Mis tomorrow. Do you […]

Hello, Friday! I’m happy to see you. You could have neglected to bring the heat, but I’m already enjoying your cloudy garb! Update on reno–we have one of the basic pieces of equipment for a bathroom. Yay! Also, the tile is completed. Cabinets are in. The template for the granite countertops is under way. The […]

Wednesday Shenanigans

| April 18, 2012

Gotta hurry! A glass guy is coming to measure for our new shower door. The cabinets are being delivered. The beloved has an appointment outside the house so I actually have to act as more than gofer. (As my most recent gofer activity included buying grout, I’m not that upset about this step up to […]

Tuesday, To Do List

| April 17, 2012

Get to the bottom of my romance hero–that mixture of heart-tearing back story, and who he is today. Drama. Motivation. No cliche. Rewrite beginning of cozy because it’s almost there, but it […]

Random on Monday!

| April 16, 2012

I’ll post photos of my time away from blogging. I’ve really just been the gofer, but that takes time too, you know… I’ve also been reading one of my favorite genres–the cozy mystery. I’ve wanted to try writing one for years, and I finally have an idea that feels fresh and different than anything else […]

What is it about some movies?

| April 5, 2012

I’m a visual person so I probably already know the answer to this. If a movie is pretty, I’m glad to watch it again and again. This thought came to my mind as I was settling in for an uncomfortable summer’s sleep. (Sure, it’s still April, and the temperature reached only 87 today, vice yesterday’s […]

Extremely Random Return

| April 4, 2012

I’ve been gone. Allergies and home repair. Two distracting situations! We’re remodeling our bathroom. We did most of the other two bathrooms last year (or maybe last fall–can’t remember), and we’ll still have one floor to tile, but this week and next week, and a little bit of the week after, we’re (I use that […]
