Week in Review

Hey, y'all. Wow! Another week gone, September is right around the corner, and soon summer will be a memory. I had a hard time deciding what photo to share this week. Since the digital age, I have thousands in my archives. (I took over 900 during our Alaskan cruise several years ago.) But after looking... 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.

The Year That Wasn’t

To say that my New Year’s post is a little late would be an understatement. It’s already February, and I’ve yet to write a blog post this year (aside from having a guest, C. S. Boyack and a reblog of Mae Clair’s post about her latest release). I started a draft, or at least I... Continue Reading →
