Hiding in the Basement

Sounds ominous, doesn't it?  🙂  Well, don't be alarmed--Bernice and I are just trying to escape construction noises.  She's sleeping, and I'm obviously doing this blog, after which I will work on the new book, "Big Sky Secrets".  The story of Landry Sutton and Ria...

Making Soap

That's what I've been doing today--making soap.  🙂  Am I talking about the wonderful artisan type of soap, using lye and herbs and all the rest?  No.  This is the kind where one buys the basics at Michael's or Hobby Lobby and melts them in the microwave, adding scent...

Here’s What Happened

Regarding "Warhorse".  I couldn't bring myself to go to the movie; just the trailer on TV tied me up in knots, as do those dreadful commercials scored with Sarah McLaughlin music.  Both Wendy and I are devout animal lovers and we're seriously sensitive to any...

The talented singer I met in Florida was J.T. Carter, founder of the band the Crests (not the Crescents, as I said yesterday.) What a showman he is!

More on Florida

There was, fortunately, a bit of time for sleeping in and generally goofing off on my recent trip, as well as lots of exciting things to see and do. My goodness, the PEOPLE--Steve Black, Bill Francis, Renae Kinsey, Buck and Goldie Taylor--movers and shakers, every one...

And so she returns

I arrived at home around noon on Monday, and I've been in a stupor ever since!  Which is not to say I didn't have fun--if anything, I had too MUCH fun.  (Is there such a thing?) It was just one highpoint after another, that trip to Florida--I'm on the lookout for a...

Hello from Florida!

With some help from Super-Jen, I'm here, on the blog, writing to all of you! I'm still enough of a country girl to be impressed by all this technology, though more often that not, it intimidates me. 🙂 On Wednesday, we left for the airport at 4:dark:30, and our plane...

Too blessed to be stressed

Those words come from a sign on a local halfway house, and they do seem fitting. "Big Sky Summer" is coming in June--which means it will be available on the last Tuesday in May.  Today, I brainstormed the next book--"Big Sky Secrets"--which is the last of the Big Sky...

I’m sorry! 🙂

I was so tired, and every day I INTENDED to blog, and you know what they say about good intentions.  I have been vegging, for the most part--sleeping a lot, playing with art supplies, etc.  Every single day I said to myself, "I MUST blog.  My friends will think I'm...

When I got up this morning…

I really thought I was sick, that I'd have to spend the day in bed.  Since I'm finishing "Big Sky Wedding" today, and have a couple of other pressing responsibilities to fulfill as well, this would not have been a good thing. I took some Aleve and drank some water--I...

Thursday? There was a Thursday?

Obviously, I have a little catching up to do! First, I hope you all had a lovely and, if appropriate, romantic Valentine's Day.  🙂  I received flowers from Cousin Mary Ann and a box of candy from her husband Larry, aka, the Canadian Wrangler.  (I don't intend to...
