The Next Chapter: Secret #1 – Acknowledging Your Creative Self

I’m very excited to be starting off my blogging year as part of The Next Chapter blogging book club. It was pure synchronicity; I discovered the Next Chapter site for the current book, The 12 Secrets of Highly Creative Women, yesterday and I realized, “I have that book!” So I dashed off an email to [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Voting and Election Today, and The Big Draw Catchup

Well, we went and voted today – I always get such a big thrill when it comes to voting, that whole exercise of the right to vote in a democracy thing. It looks like the Conservatives are back in power but at least the results indicate it’s still a minority government, although stronger than the [...]
