Remotely Controlled (Re-post)

Since I first posted this, my sweet Buzz (pictured on the left) has gone to kitty heaven. He was such a handsome boy. Now, I need to apologize for my 3 year absence. I’m back now and raring to go and in the process of publishing my book, Relative Consequences. My next post will digContinue reading “Remotely Controlled (Re-post)”

With a Dash of Humor

Yes, I write about strong women. Women who have come out of life’s tornadoes bent but not broken, women who may have started slow but come out ahead in the end, women who bite off more than they can chew then take one more morsel. These are the women I admire. Most of them, IContinue reading “With a Dash of Humor”

Happy Strong Women’s Day

Now I could have said Mother’s Day, but just couldn’t bring myself to do it. I’m been overwhelmed with the need to talk about some of the strong women I know. Sure, there have been famous ones blogged about by me and other authors like political figures, astronauts, doctors, presidential wives, even a celebrity or two,Continue reading “Happy Strong Women’s Day”

Edit, Polish, Fix, REPEAT

  I hope everyone had a wonderful and warm holiday season, and you have thawed out. As you can see, we’ve had our share of cold already. So we are welcoming a little warming spell right now. But we’re not easily fooled down here. We know winter will return, but maybe not as harsh as aContinue reading “Edit, Polish, Fix, REPEAT”

Thankful . . . & LOVE AROUND THE TABLE

It’s already November. I have to be honest and say I’m glad to see the leaves fall. I really had kind of a rotten summer. Word to the wise: If you’re planning on having rotator cuff surgery (with complications, I might add), a little warning–it’s very painful and a much harder recovery than I ever expectedContinue reading “Thankful . . . & LOVE AROUND THE TABLE”

A Little Dreaming and Author, Linda Joyce

The other day, my husband, the talented pianist, was practicing a song from La La Land, “The Fools Who Dream.” I identify with that song. I am still, even at my age, one of those people who sees hope that all my dreams will come true. There was a time in my life when IContinue reading “A Little Dreaming and Author, Linda Joyce”

Remotely Controlled

CONTROL—everybody wants it. My husband, God love him, is a little bit of a control freak (she said nicely and with love), but in a good-hearted way. Me, I might be borderline, but hey, I know what I want and I usually want it right away. 🙂 My sweet dog, Bella, is even on thatContinue reading “Remotely Controlled”

A Handy Lesson and Jena C. Henry

Sorry I’ve been away for a few months, but I’m back now. Back from shoulder surgery. In fact, I have just begun typing with both hands. My right hand has been out of commission due to the cradle sling the surgeon made me wear for six weeks. One seems to appreciate all the things your dominant hand didContinue reading “A Handy Lesson and Jena C. Henry”

Perspective – The Spice of Life

Happy Memorial Day! Please take time to honor all our Veterans who died for our country and the freedoms we enjoy today!! I just returned from a great vacation. Now, I have visited California twice before in my lifetime. The first time was the summer after my sophomore year in high school. My mother had the bright idea that separatingContinue reading “Perspective – The Spice of Life”

Talkin’ Mothers & Welcome, Erin Bartels

With Mother’s Day approaching, we spotlight our mothers whether they are still living or have passed on, and remember fondly how these women have impacted our lives. My mother who was a unique yet troubled woman, taught me life lessons I will never forget.  I, being a mother myself, can only hope that I’ve been able toContinue reading “Talkin’ Mothers & Welcome, Erin Bartels”
