A Writer's Corner

Wow, what a day, but before I get into that, I was up very late again last night doing the research I need to do for my new book, “Amy’s Quest.” I sort of hated having to dive into it but as usual I take the bull by the horns and get at it.

I think I finally went to bed at 2:30 and I still have more research to do before going forward with the next chapters. That was after I made a huge pot of my “Blue Ribbon” chili. I call it that because I won a blue ribbon, 1st place, in a chili contest several years ago with this recipe. And it is a secret recipe. I do not give it out!

We have a fire station just five miles down the road from me and they have helped me several times and really nice guys. So…

Night – Ugh/Day – Yay

A Writer's Corner

Having finished a chapter and then writing for this site I finally got into bed at 2:00 this morning only to find I could not turn the brain off, so needless to say after finally falling asleep at 4:00 I awoke and dragged myself out of the bed at 10:00.

Peeking out the window I see a cold rainy day and decide it’s a good day for writing. The laundry is done, the roommate is doing great crocheting her hat without my help, the bills are paid and with a quick run down the driveway, they’re in the mailbox and only 2 telemarketing calls.

Yep, a good day to write and the words begin to flow. The Lord is giving me little clues as to what is to come in the next chapter and that really pleases me but through prayer I want to make sure it is what He’s…

Multi-Tasking Ain't for me.

A Writer's Corner

Wow, what an exciting week it was last week. This week is getting off to a good start even though I was a bit under the weather Saturday and Sunday, but prayer works and I’m feeling much better. Some rest definitely helped along with the Lord’s healing.

I’m going to say today, (Monday) but it’s actually Tuesday morning at 1:00 A.M. I just finished typing another chapter for “Amy’s Quest” and I feel good about it. I was able to get another chapter written Saturday before the crud hit me so I have been able to accomplish some things over the weekend.

Today was busy with catching up on the laundry, teaching my roommate how to crochet a hat, write, and take care of bills for tomorrow’s mail. I don’t usually multi-task but it seemed to be my lot in life for today.

I learned something today though. I don’t…

Happy Faces Continued

A Writer's Corner

I just can’t resist! I have to share our happy faces today with the distribution of the crocheted Christmas trees at the Senior Living Assisted living near me. The love, hugs, kisses, and gratitude is almost overwhelming. My heart smiles just seeing the pictures again.

Thank you so much Director Sandy at The Oaks at Hampton for giving Gerri and I this opportunity to bless others and in turn we are blessed.

He is a retired postman, and I got a hug.

The ladies are picking out which tree they want. They were so excited!

They each received a Christmas card, too.

“Oh my, they’re all so beautiful.”
She had a difficult time decided which one she wanted. 🙂 We had different colors.

My favorite lady, Nell. She’s 91 yrs old and the sweetest. I taught her to crochet. Yes, at 90 she learned and has loved it! That’s my…

Happy Faces

A Writer's Corner

After spending several nights up late writing, Friday has finally come. No, it isn’t one of those TGIF, “thank God its Friday,” days but a really blessed one. But I’ll get to that in a moment.

If any of you have ever written a book then you must know how it can be frustrating to sit down with pen and paper or in front of a computer screen and have not one single thought about just what to write enter your head.

Some call it a “block,” “brain freeze,” or whatever else you want to call it. I call it, “HELP LORD!” I’ve stated many times that He writes my books and I just type them. I really don’t care if people believe that or not because I know what happens when I take my seat in front of this computer and pray asking the Lord to set my thoughts/soul…

Said I Wouldn't but…

A Writer's Corner

I did it. I said I would not go near a shopping center for Good Friday sales but I did. Only one store though.

Thanksgiving Day we had our feast early and hit Penny’s ten minutes before the store opened. This was a sale I could not pass up no matter how long the lines were and a needed item not just a frivolous want.

We arrived to find the line waiting for the store to open about a quarter of a mile long and soon became even longer behind us. Amazingly they moved us in quickly without fights, cutting in line and no crashing the doors or stampedes which was a relief.

We had one item to buy, a coat. A regularly priced $200.00 coat and I am so proud of myself that we walked out in exactly one hour with the really nice coat and a $53.00 receipt.
