If Jason Bourne Were Written By A Woman

I went to see the new Jason Bourne movie yesterday as part of hubby’s birthday festivities.  We actually marathoned all its predecessors (except for Legacy) before going so that teenager would be caught up on the storyline, so all the details of the originals were fresh.  I was really looking forward to this because I love […]

Sunday Summary and #ROW80 Update

First off, according to trending on Facebook, it seems that today is National Ice Cream Day.  Since we have entered the part of summer that’s hot as blue blazes, this seems like an excellent idea.  And I JUST made a fresh batch of coconut milk ice cream yesterday. It’s been a busy busy week at […]

Sunday Summary and #ROW80 Update

Our last day of vacay in Charleston (a week ago this past Friday) was lovely.  We spent most of the day at Magnolia Plantation, wandering the gardens, checking out the Audubon Swamp Garden, and taking pics of the wildlife (we got several good ones of gators).  We ended the day with a stop by the […]

Canine Trauma

It’s been a stressful couple of days.  Sunday, our baby dog Huck started acting…odd.  He’d vomited twice in the morning (as they sometimes do when they inhale their food faster than the speed of light).  And by dinnertime, he ate REALLY slowly (totally out of character) and wasn’t even interested in sniffing our dinner plates. […]

On Leveling Up and Finding The Way

Operation G.I.T. My brain has been all over the place this week.  I’m closer to back in the groove of normal schedule, but not quiet there.  Mornings after taekwondo are always the hardest for sticking to my vow to get up and write before walking the dogs and the gym.  I don’t get to bed […]

Manifesting the Positive in 2016

Welcome to 2016. It really won’t feel like the new year for me until Monday, when I dive into the new/old routine that is daily life.  I’ve enjoyed my holiday, gotten some rest and some quiet.  Done some reading (knocked out Tawna Fenske’s latest, The Fix Up and Tara Sivec’s Seduction and Snacks, both of which were […]

Midweek #ROW80 Check-In

Obviously one of my goals next round of #ROW80 should be to blog more consistently.  But whatever.  I’m kicking ass and taking names on the writing front.  About 9k into this little Christmas novella (yeah, the one that was supposed to be a Meet Cute–that one) and still going strong.  I’ve made some really great […]

Post NaNo Dig Out and Christmas Prep

We had a good, hard frost this morning.  This is a sign we’re heading on into my favorite time of year.  No, I don’t mean Christmas.  I mean all the stuff I’m allergic to is going to stop growing and for the next three months, I’ll be able to breathe!  Also, I’ll look fetching in […]
