This blog will continue to be irregular for the rest of June. I know, I know, when has it ever been regular? It’s just that there is traveling, and work commitments not only at the ‘regular’ job, but the art & design end of my spectrum, too. Frankly my dear, I’m swamped. I was sitting… Read More Planned irregularity
Waves at her readers I’m running out the door in about fifteen minutes and I still need to load the car… Despite shutting down the business website and facebook and all that, I still have clients who call, and since I have the time… Oh, who am I kidding. I miss performing. It’s so much… Read More Oh, Hey!
I can’t claim that line – that’s from the fingers of the marvelous Mike Kabongo this morning, when we were chit-chatting in Gary Poole’s unending thread #forthecookies. It’s too much to tell, let me sum up. There’s a bunch of us that use this lengthy facebook thread as a hang-out spot. We mostly seem to… Read More Learning is My Supercrack
This and that… One of the perks of teaching a teen home ec. in homeschooling is that I get to eat waffles for breakfast, and I didn’t have to cook them. Buttermilk waffles from scratch, mmmm. While I’m eating these delicious fluffy things, I’m also taking a break from cleaning house. It’s not bad, but… Read More And the Other Thing
It’s been an amazing year. It really has. It just has also been a roller coaster of ups and downs and sudden left turns I didn’t see coming. There were definitely times I had whiplash. But in the end, sitting here at my desk in a new house, listening to my children, I have a… Read More 2016 In Personal Retrospective
Today is another busy one. So I’m just going to throw a few things here I think you all might be interested in. I know I was, but that doesn’t always translate! So this morning I’m excited to see that Alton Brown is planning a new show, a follow-on to Good Eats. I loved that… Read More Oddments
It’s the first of November. I find myself, on this chilly morning, watching all my friends make plans to write extra hard this month, and I have to make myself write some things down. But those things are the reasons I cannot, absolutely cannot, write fiction this month. I want to. I want to so… Read More Gone Astray
After the last week of intense pressure, preceded by a couple of weeks that were nearly at that level, I find myself in transition. It’s not just the loss of pressure – I do have many, many other pressing projects that I must now list, prioritize, and begin to implement. It’s also the loss of… Read More Transitions
There will not be an ETWYRT post today. I’m apologizing, because I really thought I’d planned this well enough to work around the big exam today. I didn’t. Life has been a tsunami all week and I won’t know until tomorrow if I have escaped the undertow… so the food will happen Friday, maybe Saturday.… Read More Placeholder
Now that I am both recovered from traveling and have begun school again, it’s time to address the blog. I’d decided a while back I wasn’t going to be able to keep up the daily schedule if I was going to write fiction productively. So in 2016 there will be a new blog schedule, as… Read More The New Schedule and other Housekeeping
I didn’t stay up to midnight, but I awakened late this morning after a good night’s sleep, refreshed and ready for the new year. I’ll be re-evaluating the blog schedule, and posting that over the weekend. Comments and suggestions welcome, but I will say that I’m not going to do a daily this coming year,… Read More Happy New Year!
We left our house at ten in the evening, with the intention of driving straight through to New Hampshire for a family Christmas. We made it… around 5:30 pm the next day. Thoughts from the trip. The NY toll road is long. Very very long, especially when you do most of it in the dark… Read More Safely Traveled
