What Kind of Morning Has it Been?

You don’t have to be Scooby and the gang to figure out which side of my hair I style first each day. Invariably, I start out strong, enjoying the process of converting frizzes into smooth sleekness, but just as night follows day, and green beans are met with whining, my enthusiasm assuredly wanes. I pause [...]

Books I Read in June

Okay, so I read slow as molasses. Sometimes it is because I have to fight my way to finish a book. But mostly it’s because I can’t stay awake. I save reading until my chores are done – or, more accurately, until I’m done with chores, because sometimes I just scrap the rest of the [...]

My Writing Process: A Blog Hop

Friends sometimes encourage us to do things we ordinarily wouldn’t. That is the case with my friend Kaye Sims, who invited me to participate in the “My Writing Process” Blog Hop, where bloggers answer questions about their writing process and then introduce readers to three other bloggers they admire or enjoy. I met Kaye on [...]

Rome Needed More Lions

Sometimes I think I should just drive with my eyes closed. Not the best option, I suppose, but how else do I avoid the ever-present bumper stickers that taunt me in traffic? Join me over at Jamy Whitaker’s site, Stitching God’s Truth into Everyday Life, where I’m sharing some of my bumper sticker frustrations.

April Readings

Here it is, May 10th {how did that happen?!) and I’m just getting around to posting about the books I read in April. I could blame it on mid-term exams, headaches, or other projects and busy-ness, but the truth is, I’m a slacker. {There, I said it!} True, the other things were present as well, [...]
