One of the things I plan to do this year is make a few things that I should be doing regularly into actual habits. I mean, I kind of had those as goals last year, too, but well, last year was an odd year in so many ways, I just decided that I wasn't going … Continue reading Force of Habit
One of the writers I know chooses a word every January to focus themselves for the coming year. I like the idea, so I am going to try it this new year. The word I have chosen this year is: FORWARD For me, this is almost the perfect word for 2021. This past year was, … Continue reading What’s the Word?
So. Out with the old; in with the new, right? And, none too soon, as many are saying. I am not going to tell you I don't agree with that. For the most part, 2020 was a special year. Between the pandemic, political shenanigans, travel bans, restrictions on gatherings and social interaction, and all the … Continue reading Happy New Year!
Often, when we hit this point in the year, I am thinking "Gee, I can't believe it's almost November. The year will be over before we know it." This year feels a bit different. I am sure you have all seen the memes about how long this year 2020 has seemed. With the COVID pandemic, … Continue reading Winding Down the Year
I have been feeling a bit lost since the beginning of the year.

I think I will just have to force myself to plunge in … Continue reading Wednesday Waffling: Post Holiday and Trying to Get Back in Gear- And Cover Reveal!

We seem to have made it into 2019, haven't we? I know I've been scarce around here for the last part of December, but after Two's Company released, I decided to take some time off to enjoy the holidays, and regroup before plunging into things again. That said, if you know me at all, you know … Continue reading Monday Musings: Onward to a New Year
Sorry about the lack of Monday post. I wanted to. Really, I did. But then there were so many other things to do, and, well, I just never sat down long enough to get 'er done.
