Trusting God During Rising Costs

It’s been 8 months since I had my hair professionally cut. It took a long time for the short cut to grow to the length I wanted and then I trimmed it periodically myself. Yesterday I had an appointment with my hairdresser for a “real trim.” She did a great job and I’m very happy…

Book Edits and Rewards

It’s been lovely working on the porch recently. I completely finished the first read through and edit of Katy’s Heart and have run through a robust editing service with multiple feedback reports. I was pleased to see how high it fell on the strong writing scale. The current edits are from these reports. Hoping to…

Writing in the Great Outdoors

Saturday morning…not a usual day for me to blog. The reason is a new tablet and bluetooth keyboard I’m trying out. As I sit here with my cup of tea, listening to the birds singing, I find it a nice change from having to squint at my laptop screen. If only it wouldn’t be so…

Believe You Can and Do It!

An aging body is not for sissies! With the sudden glorious weather, I felt inspired to get off the elliptical walker indoors and take a nice walk around my condo area. Full sun from early morning until sunset, low humidity, and temperatures in the high seventies to low eighties, these days are meant for enjoyment.…

Every Minute Will Be Joyful

The desire is within me to take a walk in this beautiful spring weather. Full sunshine, light breezes, clear sky. It beacons me. There was a time when I could walk around the condo area for thirty minutes without an issue. Now it is difficult to make it for 10 minutes. Arthritis is taking a…

Mother’s Day Morning Memories

I wish my mother was alive today so I could wish her Happy Mother’s Day. I wish I could give her a present to let her know I love her and thank her for giving me life. There comes a time when you realize the absences of loved ones in your life. Today is one…

No Rock, Paper, Scissors

Rock, paper, scissors was the way my friends and I made decisions when we were young enough to play hopscotch and tag–when days were endless hours of playing in the sunshine and catching fireflies at night. Those days are long gone now. Through my adult years I’ve been faced with many decisions. I became good…

Bubble Baths and Me Time

I remember the days of interruptions, squabbling children, meals to fix, housecleaning, laundry, endless hours of being a mother, housekeeper, bookkeeper, cook and chauffer, all on top of working outside the home at a full-time job. So many times I longed for peace and quiet…a few hours to rest quietly and regain energy. Usually those…

After Writing “The End”

Saturday April 30 marks the day I wrote the end to my 9th full length novel. Emotions ran high that afternoon. I missed being able to hug my husband and to hear him tell me congratulations. He was my biggest fan. And marketer. He told everyone I was a published author, even strangers. It’s a…

Years of Blessing

I think my mom would have enjoyed living here. The last years of her life, she spent all day and evening watching television and solving word search puzzles. I can see her sitting on the porch and passing time. Add my late husband to a chair beside her and I can hear them exchanging stories.…
