Today’s Random Bits & Pieces

One of the things I loved about doing Morning Pages, during the eight or nine years that I did them, was their ability to clear my mind of so much of the stuff I carried around with me – not big stuff, no, not really. But loads of little things, things that I thought interesting [...]

Back from Disney!

Not, of course, that we’ve actually been in Disney all this time since I last posted here (I wish!). Deadlines and then the holidays managed to consume me for most of December – and I hadn’t signed on for NaBloPoMo so had nothing to push me to keep blogging (stuff like that works with me [...]

November Wrap-up

It’s the end of November already – this month has passed by so fast, and I’ve both accomplished a ton of stuff, and not done everything I’ve wanted to do.
NaNoWriMo: I didn’t reach my 50,000 words on the one hand, but my initial goal was never to do that. It was to simply get [...]

One Word Answers Meme

I’m a little blogging goddess today, so many posts! But today’s really been my first chance to get out and about reading everyone’s blogs and visiting links since before that whole deadline crunch thing happened, and I’m telling you – it feels so good!
I was just over at Lynn’s blog, and she’s got a wonderful [...]

Ten Things I am thankful for this year

Playing Ten on Tuesday:
1. Field Center
2. My darling FC group.
3. My darling affiliate goddesses.
4. My kids and how they’re growing and learning

6. Eating so many lovely, delicious dishes.
7. Finding my [...]

Renewal

That’s a better word than what I was just thinking two seconds ago.
It’s been a tiring day today, and it occurred to me that the day after some deadline or other is met, finished, can be like that. You feel drained. But those words didn’t feel very good to me.
I like renewal better. I [...]

Halloween Pics

I finally snagged the Halloween pictures from Ward’s camera – not that we had very many! This Halloween told the tale of a little boy reluctant to actually wear his costume. We pleaded and we begged, and he finally consented to wear his cape and witch’s hat. Here he is, sans wand and not looking [...]

The Sunday Salon: Another Book-Buying Binge

Yesterday, as part of my major procrastination plan, I got my husband to drop Dylan and I off at Chapters while he went and did the groceries. Having Dylan with me is supposed to stop me from plunging into another major book-buying binge, but what can I say? I’m very resourceful.
Plus the Thomas the [...]

Not Procrastinating

No, definitely not.
I’m just writing because I’m in need of a good dollop of fun right now.
It’s been incredibly busy around here – I’ve got deadlines coming out of my ears. I took a look at my schedule and realized I’m going to actually have to complete quite a few deadlines ahead of time [...]

The Sunday Salon: A Crime Thriller Week

I’ve really gotten back into reading fiction lately – I’ve recently discovered that fiction for me is really the equivalent of “filling my well” when it comes to my writing. That, and watching movies. Both of which for the longest time I tried to avoid because they take up so much time.
Reading novels can [...]
