Catching Up

Hey everyone. It's been a few weeks since I last posted here. Truthfully, I didn't intend for it to be that long. When I last checked in, I had been working from home for about a week. I had always wondered what that would be like. Now, I know. It's not all it's cracked up... Continue Reading →

The Silver Lining from the COVID-19 Cloud

Hey everyone. Check out this thought-provoking post from Don Massenzio.

Author Don Massenzio

As I write this, I’m sitting in my office beginning the fourth day of the isolation brought about by the COVID-19 (CoronaVirus) pandemic.

I work for a company where travel every week is the norm. Last week, as I sat in a corporate office in Chicago, we listened to our travel scenario gradually degrade from ‘travel as normal’ to ‘no meetings with over 25 people’ to ‘no travel to client offices’ to stay at home and work remotely.

As Monday came along, our highly technological company struggled with overworked meeting servers and the inability to dial in. The whole working world had moved to this model and the infrastructure was not ready.

Now, four days in, my perspective on the ‘inconvenience’ of the restrictions on travel and gathering are helping me form a different perspective on what’s happening in the world.

I know many are suffering from this virus, but…

Week in Review

Hey, everyone. Happy first Friday of March. When Bob Dylan wrote The Times They Are a Changin, he spoke the truth. Changes are inevitable. Some good, others not so good. But change is in the air. We are moving from winter into spring (for which I am happy). When the weather permits, I enjoy sitting... Continue Reading →

Week In Review

Sometimes I'm beginning to think doing NaNoWriMo caused some of my brain cells to disappear. For some reason, I can't seem to get it together. I scrambled at the last minute to get the Friday writing links done for January 10 and 17. Last week, I was determined to get ahead of the game. I... Continue Reading →

Memories #Thursday Thoughts

I'm breaking from the mystery theme of the month today but this was on my mind. A few days ago, I received a phone call from my brother. The conversation began with something like this: "I know it was around this time of year..." He didn't have to finish the sentence for me to know... Continue Reading →

Best Laid Plans #ThursdayThoughts

Hey y’all. It's time for this week's Thursday Thoughts. Like many of today’s writers, I also hold a full-time job. I leave the house around 6:30 each weekday morning and get home around 4:30 unless I have errands to run. My husband works on Saturdays, and I try to use that day as my primary... Continue Reading →

Thursday Thoughts

Hey, y’all. Yes, I’ve gone from rarely blogging to a regular schedule. I had planned to leave Thursdays open, but yesterday an idea came to mind - Thursday Thoughts. I don’t know if I’ll write these each week, but I do plan to have a Thursday post at least a couple of times per month.... Continue Reading →

The Week in Review

Happy Friday, Readers. Hope you've had a good week. Although summer hasn't officially arrived, if the upcoming weekend is any indication, Texas is in for a hot one. I'm making a concerted effort to blog more often. In addition to writing, I enjoy photography - especially nature photos. Due to health reasons, I'm not able... Continue Reading →

The Month That Was

September has arrived, leaving August a mere memory. And what a month it was—some good, some bad. August began with promise. My husband and I had just come off a week’s vacation. Although I’m a “mountain” person, we decided to go to the Texas coast this year. We spent two nights in Corpus Christi in... Continue Reading →

Remembering

Today in the United States, we celebrate Memorial Day. It's sort of the unofficial start of summer. Kids get out of school, families begin taking vacations, and many people will flock to the lakes for boating, skiing, and cookouts. But this is not a holiday to be taken lightly. It began as Decoration Day back... Continue Reading →

Onward and Upward

A new year is upon us, and it brings about new beginnings. In some ways, a new year is like starting over. I’ve always looked at each January as a time for rebirth and renewal. A time for putting the past behind and moving forward. A time to forget our past mistakes and failures and... Continue Reading →
