Trying to Keep Up

I'm sure you've been wondering where I've been lately. Here's the scoop: Toward the end of 2018, just before my mother passed away, I joined a local professional writing group. I've spent the last year waiting for a spot in one of their critique groups to open up, and meantime I (and my friend E … Continue reading Trying to Keep Up

Site updates

I'm working on bringing a more professional look to my website as I transition from a more family style blog site to an author website. Most of the blog content will remain the same: meanderings on life, family news, burbling about books I've read or places I've been, writing or crafting thoughts.

More organizing

I promised more organizing for the next day's post and many days have gone by and I can't remember any more what I organized, so I'm looking through my pictures to help me remember: Honestly, I've gotten nothing else done since then, except a tiny bit in my makeup & hair boxes.  Steph and I … Continue reading More organizing
