Gratitude Month, Day 30

Today I’m grateful that I had good books to read this month (and always). Mostly I was writing instead of reading. But I did get to read this: *HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX by JK Rowling. It was the one on the shelf when I went seeking a fix to my HP […]

Gratitude Month, Day 29

We’re coming into the home stretch here. I can feel it. I may never be thankful again. Oh, come on. I’m just kidding. But know what? It’s a beautiful day outside. It’s fifty degrees and sunny. It feels like fall, and it IS fall, but usually at this time of year we tend more toward […]

Gratitude Month, Day 28

I’m grateful for a couple of weeks off in the novel-writing department. And I’m really grateful for the comments from my beta readers, which range from “Hey, that was pretty good” to “If you really want to make something of this, you’ve got some work to do[1]” and were all very helpful and much, much […]

Gratitude Month, Day 23

Wherein I dust off my kitchen nerdery… I was making bread. I do this often. Yesterday it was pizza crust. And I know that instant yeast was invented just so I could skip the “proofing” step, but did you know that the proofing step is one of my favorite things? So I put the warm […]

Gratitude Month, Day 22

Dishwasher. Remember that at this time last year we’d been going on six months without one? And how it was fine, really? Because we spent extra time together after dinner what with all the washing and drying and putting away business? And then remember that we received one for Christmas, by the grace of Annie […]
