Relish In The Present

0

This past weekend I went to see Midnight In Paris, which turned out to be better than I expected. I’m not a huge Woody Allen fan, but Owen Wilson did a splendid job of bringing the movie to life, at least in my opinion. On my way home though, the general foundation upon which the film was built got me […]

Finally Back on the Shelf

0

This year I thought long and hard, and ended up making a sole birthday request. I told my younger brother that I would like to have my beat up copy of Where The Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls back for my birthday, and he came through. While I haven’t cracked it open just yet, it is at the top […]

Birthday Reflections

0

As I turn another year older, I can’t help but to reflect upon how truly blessed I am. I have had so many wonderful teachers in my life, amazing experiences, and most of all, life-changing lessons, which have all helped shape me into the woman I am today. Yet, despite all of this, somehow I still feel deep down inside […]

Fell off the Wagon (sort of)

0

While I haven’t taken my nook back out of the drawer I tucked it into a few weeks ago, after two and a half weeks without adult fiction I cracked (it felt much much longer).  A few nights ago I started reading Summer Island by Kristin Hannah. So far so good, and I feel much better. I also picked up […]

Nooks Anonymous

0

For someone who was pretty opposed to e-readers, I have to admit that once I got my nook up and running I fell hook, line and sinker. I read five books (and a few samples I didn’t care for – love that feature) in two and a half months – twice my usual paperback average. Unfortunately, all of the reading […]

The Story of Joe

0

About a year ago, my daughter started bugging me about getting a dog of her own. While she grew up with and loved Willow, she was a bit too big to cuddle with and a bit too strong for her to walk. I’ll also admit, that I always liked the idea of having a dog that could curl up at […]

Lucky Me

0

After a fabulous session on description with my writing group, I decided to finally take my YA notes and start writing. The prologue came with ease, a mere two pages to set the stage. But now, “chapter one” stands before me, and all of a sudden the fears that have kept my notes buried at the bottom of my idea […]

On a British Kick

0

After finishing The Other Mother’s Club, I began my second nook book. The Apothecary’s Daughter by Julie Klassen. If you liked Pride and Prejudice you will love this book too, and probably have as hard of a time putting it down as I did. Then I moved onto Another Life Altogether by Elaine Beale after reading the sample pages (love […]

“Just Lie Down . . . “

0

While I’m a huge fan of books, I’m not quite as fond of magazines (too many ads and can’t stand the perfume samples). I do subscribe to the Oprah magazine though, and I always read the last page first (“What I Know For Sure”) and save all of the issues. The February issue had a piece somewhere in the middle […]

Make a Wish

1

Tonight, while catching up on my shows (thanks to dvr) I glanced at the clock and noticed that it was 11:11 pm. Without thinking, I closed my eyes and made a wish. For the first sixteen years of my life, every time I had the chance to make a wish I always wished for the same thing – a dog. […]
