Various and Sundry Things

In other words, this blog will probably amount to a hodge-podge of Random Linda Thoughts and Observations.  🙂 Weight Watchers.  Sigh.  The battle continues.  I'm still stalled out, and more determined than ever to break through this plateau, no matter how long it...

Linda Goes Pyro

Don't panic!  I'm not playing with matches or anything like that, though I have been known to smoke up the kitchen and permanently bond bread wrappers to the sides of innocent toasters.   🙂  I came across a magazine called "Pyrography"--commonly known as...

Congratulations to Linda Kroesche and Dennis--you're our winners for last week.  🙂  There's a brand new contest running now, so if you'd like to enter, simply comment on this blog and you're in. Sadly, my brother-in-law's mom, Betty Lang, passed away.  She was a...

Update from the Triple L

Prayers are needed for my brother-in-law's mom, Betty Lang.  She's a brave lady, and she's mighty ill right now. On a (much) more mundane note, my weight was down 1.6 pounds this week--a relief after all this time stuck in neutral.  I continue to exercise and eat the...

First, our weekly winners, who should have been announced yesterday.  🙂  Alas, both Debbie Gamble and Beverly Majkut have been notified and, ladies, your autographed books are on their way to you now.  (I was out of commission yesterday, for all practical intents and...

Back from my journey/Winners

As you might have guessed, I was recuperating from my (very wonderful) travels yesterday, so didn't get to this blog.  Our winners for last week are: Brenda Ireland and Cathy Green.  Congratulations, my friends--enjoy!  (Not Brenda or Cathy?  No worries.  Just comment...

Weight Watchers, etc.

Progress!  I'm down 2.6 pounds.  YES! I'm leaving town tomorrow and won't be back in Spokane until late Sunday night.  If I can blog from the hotel in Santa Rosa, I will.  I'm sure Jenni will post a few photos to my Facebook page along the way.  I'm also sure I'll...

The winners….

Congratulations to Ginny and to Diane Blaser.  🙂  You'll be receiving your autographed books soon. I think I might have gotten off that darn plateau at last--tomorrow's weigh-in at Weight Watchers will tell the story.  🙂 I'll be traveling Thursday and Friday, so...

You heard it here first! (I hope)

At last, at last, I am free to tell my secret!  The Hallmark Channel is putting together a made-for-TV movie based on my Parable books--and if things go well, meaning, I suppose, if the ratings are high enough (cross your fingers, please), a weekly series will...

I love Fridays.  (I also love Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays, of course.  🙂 )  Each one is a gift, as far as I'm concerned, one I'm grateful to receive. Still, there's something festive about Fridays--there are responsibilities to...

Oh, no, plateau

Who would have thought a good habit like exercising--I'm up to 45 minutes and more than 10 miles on my stationery bike, five-plus days per week--would play such havoc with the scale???  🙂  Good thing I'm half again too stubborn to give up!  In fact, I actually look...
