A clog in the blog

🙂 I hope none of you have been worrying about me, since I've been away from the blog--I am simply putting all my energy into finishing THE MARRIAGE PACT.  I LOVE this book.  Today was Weight Watchers day, but I skipped the meeting to write.  I'm still following the...

Another belated blog….

I spent the entire day writing, except for a long and fascinating conversation with my new editor, Paula Ekelhoff.   May I say, she is a remarkable woman?  🙂  She recommended several books, which I am currently downloading: "In the Garden of Beasts" by Erik Larson,...

Spaghetti squash and other tales

You know my penchant for experimenting--and I feel it's only fair to mention the failures as well as the successes.  🙂  The most recent lab project involved spaghetti squash.  I decided to deviate from my standard way of cooking this lovely no-point vegetable, which...

What happened to Monday?

I had the best of intentions, but you know what they say about good intentions.  🙂  I was mainly caught up in the current project, THE MARRIAGE PACT, which will be followed by a special Christmas title (brand new) for this year, and we had the usual number of...

It’s been a rocky week for getting online 🙂

I'm grabbing my chance to blog while I can--it's been a wild ride, between switching servers and dicey connections in general.  Oh, well, at least I finally showed up.  🙂 This week's winners are Lyla Pedersen and Anita C.  Congratulations, ladies.  A new round begins...

Hello? Can you hear me now?

For whatever reason, I couldn't get onto this blog yesterday, but I think I remember Jenni passing on the news that the website was being shifted to another server, so maybe that's it.  In any case, here I am, ready to rock n' roll!  I'm working long hours on THE...

More internet problems!

Errrrgh!  I pay these people for internet service, but I don't always get it.  I've been waiting to blog, and doing my best to stay on an even keel when I couldn't.  🙂 Our winners for the week are Christy Miller and Terri Shortell.  Congratulations, ladies.  Your...
