What Inspired You?

This morning I decided to clean some old stuff off of my phone. I started with my notes since these are usually notes that reminded me of something I needed to do or an idea on writing. I came across a note with five questions: What inspired you today? What […]

Traditions and Toasts

Can you believe Christmas is just a week away? Do you find yourself asking questions like: Where did this year go? What will we be doing for Christmas? Did I buy enough gifts? What will we do for New Year Eve or day? Should I make a new year’s resolution?  What […]

Where’s the leftovers?

It’s been three days!  Three!  Yet I don’t see any turkey and stuffing leftovers.  Where are they? Oh, yes, that’s correct.  Last year my son and I started a new tradition for Thanksgiving.  We decided that we would look for recipes from other places, cultures etc. Well what we have learned is that not everyone […]

Did I Really?

I’m here at the end of my project, publishing two children’s books and I realize I’m going to need a book launch. I started doing my budget and my  thoughts are wow, you just may not make it. Well failure is not an option so I started checking out discount stores […]

[…]

Never Alone

The Rotisserie

I made a quick trip to the store today to grab a sandwich and take to my friend on their lunch. While I was there I decided to pick up some wings for my lunch. It is easy and quick and my kitchen will stay clean. I’m at the counter […]

Layers

How many of you are on Pinterest? When Pinterest  first hit the social media platforms most of us ran to start pinning articles, crafts and even our own pictures. I was personally confused. What is this for?  Why am I doing this?  But I got better at it until I was pinning on a […]

Tickle Me Tuesday

The other day I was out doing some errands and a young man was a few feet from the door to a business. He suddenly took a few quick steps towards the door.  I wondered why he had suddenly needed to move so quickly. I looked around there was no one else […]
