Eight random facts including Beowabbit

My friend Suzan Robertson is kindly kicking me back into the world of blogging by means of this “eight random facts about yourself” game. I haven’t blogged in ages. On the other hand, I dug into one of my novels that needed a total rewrite. I rewrote it in three months, then started a new one, so I don’t feel…

Going to the birds

Sometime during Feb. 16-19, I’m going to participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count. This is a simple activity and doesn’t take much time. You count birds, and you enter your counts online. The results are used to guesstimate the well being of various types of birds and how general patterns of bird populations vary from year to year. It’s…

Six weird things.

My friend Deeanne Gist tagged me today to play “Six Weird Things About Me.” Oh, boy. Like I needed to be reminded. Ha! Here goes. 1. I don’t do numbers. My brain simply refuses to process them. Ask me what year my car is, and I can’t tell you. Ask me how old I am, and I have to stop…

Putting the book-monster together

Here I go again, tackling a monster puzzle. I’ll be tearing my hair out by the end of the week. I’m not talking about a jigsaw puzzle, although we just finished one, inspired by my friend Dee who blogged here about doing a puzzle every Christmas. (Ours is a barn scene in Maine. Nothing spectacular.) My husband and I put…

I’ve been missing….

I woke this morning to strong winds and a beautiful sunrise, half over. I usually get up when it’s dark out, but I tend to miss the sunrise because I’ve got my nose to the laptop by then. So I went outside to see what I’d been missing. A hawk was circling above the trees to the right of my…

ACFW moments: the good, the bad, and the ugly

I wrote a post yesterday, but something ate it. So, instead of a cohesive and intelligent report from the ACFW conference, I’ll round up some random memories in no particular order. Which might be more interesting anyway. An encouraging moment: As I walked down the hall, I overheard a young man mention P.G. Wodehouse as a favorite author. Yeah! I’ve…

Techno-klutz and the very expensive coffee

I simply cannot make myself be technologically adept. In my last post, when I tried to link to my friend Dee’s post about meeting each other in Atlanta last month, I didn’t link to that post specifically, just to her blog in general, so if you clicked on the link, you were probably scratching your head and asking, “Huh? What…

To Florida and back to my cave

I’ve been neglecting this baby again. I haven’t been home a lot lately, and when I’ve been around, I’ve been writing like crazy. Just not on the blog. A couple of weeks ago we drove down to Florida for a nephew’s wedding. After the festivities, some of us went to the beach. I was happy to change from my glad-rags…

To RWA and back to my cave again

Last week, I spent some time at the Romance Writers of America conference in downtown Atlanta. I’m not a member of RWA anymore, but it was fun to be there during the open-to-the-public events. For me, the highlight was on Wednesday, when my husband and I went to the airport to pick up my friend Deeanne Gist. Dee and I…

Best sellers, best givers

My husband and I took a one-day trip on his bike a couple of weeks ago. We stopped at a garage sale just down the road, and I bought a novel by a Famous Christian Author, or F.C.A. Lo, how the mighty have fallen. A best-seller for a quarter. I’ve never read any of this F.C.A.’s books, but I’ve read…
