This Week at Story Empire

Is it already Friday? What happened to the week? I'm not exactly sure, but it went by as fast as if I'd been on vacation. Yes, I was told I wouldn't have as much time as I thought I would. It's true. More things going on at the Hall household this week. Errands to run,... Continue Reading →

This Week at Story Empire

Hey everyone! Happy Friday, the first one of fall. Our temperatures soared this week, making the autumn equinox feel more like the summer solstice. But signs of fall are everywhere. My spider lilies began blooming this week and a cool front is supposed to bring our temps back down to more seasonal norms next Monday.... Continue Reading →

This Week at Story Empire

Hey, everyone. It's the last Friday of the summer. Here in Texas, we're moving into more autumn-like weather. One morning the low was in the upper fifties. Quite a contrast from our triple-digit summer temps. Our recent rain helped the grass to grow, and everything is a lot greener than it was a month ago.... Continue Reading →

This Week at Story Empire

Happy Friday, everyone! I hope everyone has enjoyed their week. I'm getting used to not having to drive to work every day. Let's just say it didn't take much of an adjustment.

Tried and Failed #WIP Wednesday

Hey, everyone. It’s already the second week of April, and it’s been a while since I wrote a WIP Wednesday post. This one is more of a WIHW (What I Haven’t Written) story.

Snowmaggedon #ThursdayThoughts

Hey, everyone. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably know Texas had a massive winter storm last week. I’ve been calling it Snowmageddon.

Week in Review

Hey, Everyone. Happy Friday the 13th! Thirteen is a number surrounded by superstition. While I come from a long line of superstitious people, I’m not one of them. I’ll purposely do things such as walk under a ladder, open an umbrella in the house, or cross a black cat’s path. I have a cousin who... Continue Reading →

Week in Review

Hey, Readers. It's been a rather strange week. On Monday, my husband, brother, and I had to make a trip to the Dallas/Fort Worth area for a funeral. We left my brother's house at 7:00, got to the outskirts of Dallas (about 80 miles) in an hour and fifteen minutes. From there it took another... Continue Reading →

Week in Review

Hey, everyone. Time to wrap up another week. Happy Valentine's Day! Last week I wrote that my daffodils were getting ready to bloom. Sure enough, the first blossoms appeared over the weekend. Other perennials are beginning to grow, so I'll soon be seeing more colors splashed about. Oh, and last Friday, I saw a tulip... Continue Reading →
