writing, revising, and looking at deer

Posted Jan 31 2011

Good morning!  I had to laugh at myself last night. I was talking to my husband about my weekend, and I summed it up with the heading for this post. Last weekend my husband went down to Alabama to go on a duck hunting trip with our son. They were in a cabin with some […]

2011 Dates

Posted Jan 25 2011

I’ll be honest. I’ve really enjoyed spending most of January writing. Just writing.  In a lot of ways, the end of last year was the most exciting and the most exhausting time I’ve had in years. I had lots of very tight deadlines and books coming out just two months apart. It seemed every week I […]

Snow and more snow

Posted Jan 24 2011

  Well, it’s official. I’m officially tired of the snow. I think it’s beautiful, and I love watching those pretty snowflakes flutter in the air. I really enjoy the first snowfall of the season. I thought our white Christmas was terrific. But now? At the end of January? I’m getting tired of it. Actually, I get tired of planning […]

Off to California

Posted Jan 18 2011

Happy Tuesday! It’s been raining here all day which is pretty unusual for Cincinnati in January. I’m thankful that it’s raining instead of snowing though, because I’ve got to catch a flight tomorrow morning. I’m going out to California to see my mom for a few days. I’m thankful to get to go with her […]

Another swim meet : )

Above […]

Wishing you lots of ‘Bests’

Posted Jan 14 2011

So, there I was, half-walking-half-running on the treadmill this morning, thinking about food, when I got to thinking about my relatives’ coffee cake. We hosted my husband’s family this Christmas, and in the midst of cooking and baking and shopping, we ate my sister-in-law’s mother-in-law’s coffee cake. Mardy’s MIL had sent it to her for […]

Who knew?

Happy Monday! It’s almost five and I’m just finishing up for the day. I’ve been doing a little bit of this and that today~sent books to enter the HOLT Medallion and while I was at it, I sent a care package to my son, who’s now been back at school for one week. ( I […]

Happy Friday : )

Posted Jan 7 2011

It’s 2:00 pm and I just got back into my office. Before I head back to Sugarcreek (I’ve started the book!) I thought I’d check in. This morning I had my critique partner meeting. For over ten years, a group of us have met every other Friday and shared what we’ve been working on. These […]
