Last year, I made an agreement to write every day. I’m almost embarrassed to admit that the time I allotted was a mere 15 minutes (just long enough to begin formulating coherent thoughts). Fortunately, that rapidly grew into much more time spent at the keyboard and putting pen to paper. I planned to blog every … More Daily Notes: Watch Your Mailbox!
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt: A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,900 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people. Click here to … More 2014 in Review
It’s funny how quickly things can change. August 21st I wrote my last blog post until tonight. I had only missed a few days of posting in 8 months and then, one day, I stopped. I don’t quite know why. I just did. So here it is, more than 2 months later, and I begin… … More I’m Baa… aack!
Today I received this 1000 Likes badge. It reminded me that not so long ago, I kept my blog private (my husband says that’s a diary). I am really enjoying being “out there,” even though it can be a little scary. I don’t pay much attention to my blogging stats, but I can’t help but … More Happy Blogging!

I have 15 minutes to complete my agreement for the … More Keeping My Word in a Taco Bell Parking Lot
If it looks good, leave it. If it sounds good, save it. If it feels good, forge it.
Some days it is very easy to get my blog post done. Everything goes as planned. I’m not too busy. The stars are aligned just right. I am feeling creative and the words just flow into the text box. Other days it seems nothing plays out the way I imagined it would. I have way … More Because I Said I Would
I belong to a ladies’ group that gets together once a month for dinner and to share what is going on in our lives. I know it sounds like the scenario from a “chick flick.” And honestly, I don’t even like those types of movies and have seen very few of them. In real life, … More Ladies’ Night
I attended service at the spiritual center to which I belong this morning. Then we celebrated my sister’s 31st birthday with lunch at a Mexican restaurant. I then spent some time with my two oldest children, their spouses, and my granddaughter. Beyond that, I have been writing the better part of the day, either in my … More Happy Birthday, Suzanne!
