The eReader Tag

I grabbed this tag from Destiny @Howling Libraries. As she mentioned, I do not see tags highlighting eBooks, so why not join and spread the love? What support do you use to read your e-books? An e-reader, a tablet, or the PC?  I use the Kindle app on my Android, along with Aldiko, Bookshout, Glose, or […]

Top Ten Books on My Winter TBR

Fall, I barely got to know ya. Winter’s coming. No. I do not watch Game of Thrones, but my husband and eldest son enjoys the program. I simply like the phrase. #culturevulture. Christmas approaches, alongside snow, warm blankets and boots/scarves. I knew life like that as a native Philadelphian. However, I flipped to L.A., and […]

Happy Thanksgiving, Ya’ll!

I hope you enjoy some great food and time with your family and friends. Wear your best stretchy pants and get down to business. I plan on grubbing on turkey and whatever else my in-laws add to their spread. No worries about stretchy pants. It’s 90 degrees here in L.A., so I’m wearing a cute […]

I’m thankful for many aspects of my life: my family, my health, my sense of self, laughter. They fill my life with meaning, and I cannot imagine not having these joys.

Monday, Monday

Good Morning! I’m still here. I’m reading, but not writing (Ah! I need to get back into a stable routine). My dental surgery recuperation is going along swimmingly. My refrigerator’s running away from me. So, today I’m shopping for a new one.  Also, my kids are home for a full week of Thanksgiving break. I’m […]

Quick Note: I’m Still Here

I type this, ice bag in hand, as I recuperate from major surgery yesterday. Have no fear. I’m fine. I just hate blank space on my blog. My smile’s gorgeous, but my cheeks look like Rocky the Squirrel and my prescription makes my wordplay a psychedelic minefield of “Did she say that?” Bear with me. […]

Good Monday, Everyone! How did your weekend go? Fast? Exciting? Slow? Wakey. Wakey. Time to experience another week. I’m in a relationship with my dentist. Ha! There’s nothing salacious happening. I’m simply going back into his office Tuesday for more work. Yeah, it’s a dental project. But, it’s my last one for a while (until […]

Hue’s Reviews: The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

Yet, when such an occurrence sits on my doorstep, I sing its praises until my voice no longer roars. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo stole my voice and I’m happy for the […]

The Writer’s Tag

I’m a writer. I love what I do. I often challenge and hurt myself sharing the written word for which I’m in a torturous relationship. However, I appreciate moments when I can share my opinion on writing with others feeling the same pain and love I feel. This tag stems from Kat Impossible’s awesome blog. However, I […]

NaNoWriMo? Nah. 500 Words Daily? Okay.

Image Credit: Gerrel Saunders My thoughts this year on NaNoWriMo’s known. I accepted that, while I won once in the challenge, I will not do it this year as I’m comfortable with my writing habits and feel that the challenge really does not enhance my writing.

Good Monday, Everyone! How did your weekend go? Fast? Exciting? Slow? Wakey. Wakey. Time to experience another week. Did you enjoy an extra hour of sleep yesterday? Or, did you miss an important engagement because you forgot to set the clock? Well, I’m wishing more of the former than the terrible latter. But, by Monday, […]

October Wrap-Up/November Beginnings…

Wow. Goodbye, October. I cannot believe this month’s gone and November’s right around the corner. Pretty soon, Thanksgiving, and dare I say it, Christmas will arrive. At least, the latter will arrive formally in our home since it’s already in stores. My wallet’s still intact. So, I cannot complain. Without further adieu… The Good I […]
