What a Character!

Hi there! How’s your Autumn going? Mine is great and busy–a lot of sitting in front of my laptop. Right now, during this month of Gratitude, I’m so thankful for my family’s health in this time of strange viruses. I hope and pray your family is healthy. I’m also thankful for the new piano studentsContinue reading “What a Character!”

Bonita Bonita!!

Wow, September is almost over. I hope you are healthy and safe during this second wave of this annoying and seemingly redundant virus. I’m good to go. I wear my mask when necessary and, like my sweet dog, Bella, I’ve had my shots. So, my novel, RELATIVE CONSEQUENCES (RC), categorized as historical fiction or southernContinue reading “Bonita Bonita!!”

SIMMERED FOR FLAVOR

Thanks for sticking with me through this long, hot summer. In June, I underwent a hip replacement, which put me out of commission for a while. I’m doing well and back on track with the publication of my book, RELATIVE CONSEQUENCES. Now that I’m ambulatory, as they say, I’m actually cooking again. My poor husbandContinue reading “SIMMERED FOR FLAVOR”

“March”-ing Back in Time

Ladies and Gentlemen, Thanks for being patient with my return to blogging. It’s been an interesting Spring and now Summer. My husband and I sold our house and moved AGAIN!!! While final edits (as in professional) are being made to RELATIVE CONSEQUENCES, my upcoming book, I decided to go ahead and have hip replacement surgery.Continue reading ““March”-ing Back in Time”

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)”

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”

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”

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”
