Thirteen Years…

Thirteen years ago today, my husband and I stood in front of the altar at our church and promised to love, honor and cherish one other. (Neither of us promised to “obey”; the husband had joked he didn’t particularly feel like provoking our friends to...

Sunday Roundup

Status 100 words a day/100 days: Eighteen for eighteen. I’m not producing anything of significance at the moment, but the feel of sitting down at a keyboard and banging words out is coming back. Before all the distractions started, this was a very natural thing...

Just 750 Words a Day

I’m a big fan of morning pages. I find that if I get up and write the first thing in the morning, it seems to do wonders for clearing my head and getting my mind going. I’m not talking about getting a scene done or contributing to my word count for the...

RIP: Blake Edwards

Blake Edwards passed away Wednesday night; he was 88. While Edwards did have some clunkers in his career, there was also so much magic. Operation Petticoat, Victor/Victoria, The Great Race, and, of course, The Pink Panther — pictures that make you laugh and...

Not Really a Book Review, but a Rant

Yesterday, I admitted one of the books I was reading turned out to be a great, big, Did Not Finish. In fact, if I hadn’t been reading this one on a rather expensive electronic device, it would have been pitched across the room and straight into the trash. While...

Holiday Cheer

A friend shared this with me. I honestly cannot see either one of my cats sitting still for this — unless they were blissed out on...

And All My Sins Remembered…

So the husband and I exhausted ourselves at Disneyland yesterday, and when the park closed at six (they were doing a private party in the evening, so early closing), we headed over to California Adventure, which was open until nine. Our goal was to hit Soarin’...

Running Away to Play

The husband and I will be celebrating our anniversary in a week, so we’re taking the day to run away and play at Disneyland. We would have done it next Monday on the day itself, but the annual passes hit the Christmas blackout dates starting that day, so...

Quick Look: A Countess by Christmas

I’ve been determined to write up at least quick reviews or comments on the books I’ve read. For one thing, it’s going to help me keep track of what I am reading, especially since I’m trying to do a book a week. For another, since I’m...

Sunday Roundup

Status 100 words for 100 days: Am now at 11 days straight. It’s getting surprisingly easy to get the words done, which is good; writing regularly hasn’t been a habit for a while, so these baby steps are good for getting my feet back under me. Knitting:...

Caro Kinkead

I'm a writer doing the "work a day job/write when I can/whip things into shape for submission/actually submit once in a while" dance between family responsibilities, finding time to read and adding to my knitting stash. In the meantime, I'm trying out some new things here and we're going to see what bubbles up.
