Killing Plants and Saving Snakes

Killing Plants and Saving Snakes

The Redbuds are blooming everywhere! My husband has been spending his days doing yard work. Not your normal every day kind of yard work, but leveling, laying sod, raking leaves. I’m putting raking leaves in an abnormal context simply because we have an acre covered in trees and the position of our house in the […]

Long Post about T-shirts and a Thong

Long Post about T-shirts and a Thong

I keep typing up posts and these huge gusts of wind come through and knock the cable out. It is somewhat annoying. I’ll get back to the posts about writing, but today, I thought I’d talk shop. I’ve been buying blogads. Learning a lot about what kind of ad makes people click on it, that […]

Today’s Odds and Ends

Today’s Odds and Ends

I’d like to do what I can to promote this publication. They do a wonderful job of keeping locals up to date with great restaurants and the local music scene. Thought I’d highlight sections every once in awhile. This paper is free. Seriously. Free every Wednesday. But, it can also be delivered. I want to […]

Every Day is a Fresh Start

Every Day is a Fresh Start

My daughter took this photo of her father watching the sunset. Who needs snark on Mondays? Not me. What better way to breathe a spark into your world than with a fresh start. Maybe it’s the spring weather, but I’ve been feeling the simmering warmth of creation somewhere in my middle, sharing my space continuously, […]

Boondock Fever

Boondock Fever

Another violent movie I love. The Official Boondock Saints Website I freaking LOVE this movie. Love it. Can’t say it enough. I haven’t owned a copy and have had to watch my sister’s. Went through withdrawals so I spent the last couple of weeks looking for my own DVD. The movie is about seven years […]

How My Children See Me

How My Children See Me

I needed a new profile picture because the old one was too dark and someone out there… you know who you are… said I was hiding. So I thought this one would be perfect. (g) But as you’ll notice, I put up a really smart-assed one instead. There ya go sweetie. Here’s the office without […]

All We Are Saying Documentary and Wri...

All We Are Saying Documentary and Writing

I wore this shirt to see my doctor yesterday. (g) The color in this image is misleading. It’s actually a pretty shade of green and the material is thick, soft and nice. In other news, I recently caught a documentary called All We Are Saying by Rosanna Arquette. I loved her first one, Searching for […]

Blogger Difficulties

Blogger Difficulties

I do have a post but I’m experiencing blogger difficulties. Can’t even respond in my comment section. So I’ll be back later this afternoon for repairs.

What Kind of Writer Am I?

What Kind of Writer Am I?

Took this silly quiz for fun.  Haven’t tried my hand at film writing.  Maybe someday. 🙂 You Should Be a Film Writer You don’t just create compelling stories, you see them as clearly as a movie in your mind. You have a knack for details and dialogue. You can really make a character come to […]

Over the Rhine

Over the Rhine

I know I’ve brought up this band from Ohio before. I’ve been enamored of this husband and wife team (Karin Bergquist and Linford Detweiler) since I bought a little known CD, Good Dog Bad Dog, without having ever heard any of it. It turned into one of those CDs that you put in, then you […]
