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
I’m still here, I’m just up to my elbows in study materials. Since I’m fairly sure that’s only interesting to me and a handful of other people in my class (none of whom read my blog) I’ve refrained from muttering about it too much. Tomorrow evening I have the last of the exams and after… Read More One More Day
