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 →
Hey everyone. Check out this thought-provoking post from 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…

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 →
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 →
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 →
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 →
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 →
Hello, Readers. I don't have a Friday link post this week, and some of you may have noticed I didn't have one last Friday. I plan to get back to that but in the meantime, wanted to share the reason. Forgive me, if I seem to go about it in a round-about way, but I... Continue Reading →
Confession. After ten days of vacation, waking up to an alarm and going to work was hard. With the September days growing shorter, the sun hasn't risen before I leave the house. I made my usual stop at our local What-a-Burger for a sausage-egg biscuit and the largest iced tea they sell (need to tank... Continue Reading →
Last Saturday, my husband and I attended a reunion. A very special reunion. Attendees came from all walks of life and were of various ages. All were there to celebrate a special anniversary. For some, it was one year, others five-ten years, and still some celebrated twenty-plus years. Confused yet? In October 1993, my husband... Continue Reading →
The Sarahan dust arrived in Texas last weekend and resulted in some hazy days. Okay, we have hazy days every summer but this is the first time I've heard it attributed to anything from Africa. Here in the US, we had a holiday - Independence Day. It's a time for backyard cookouts, boating and swimming,... Continue Reading →
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 →
