Hiking Trip: Part one-Into the Woods

Remember how I said this would be a good thing for me? Well, who wouldn’t want to get away “off the grid” for a few days? It totally was a wonderful experience and a chance to spend quality time with my son and his best friend. They have trail names, Rambo and Bucko. I will be happy to just call them, my fellas. They sure did take good care of me.           No matter how prepared we think we are for such a calling as a wilderness experience, we really can’t be. I thought I was

October Sunday Round up

October Sunday Round up

Welcome to October! I have put on the Halloween theme for this week…and it will change week to week through October because I am so undecided as to which one I like best. Just so you know, this is a fun time on the blog, and I am willing to let some of the features onboard go lacking for a month. So, if you don’t see widgets, and contact forms, sign up forms, etc. it’s all in the fun-ness of October. Now, on to the news. I have not been lounging around, you guys.

Day 20-Busyness wins again

This is Day 20 of my self-imposed 25 Day Challenge. Read why I am doing this here. So today, dear friends, as I said yesterday, I am not going to be able to get anything done because I have critique meeting with my crit partners. So I did meet with them and it is too late to contemplate writing or editing so it is still a zero day. I didn’t podcast the next bit in One Time:The Adventures of Sarah though, so boo hiss. But what I did do today was critique one person’s work and I call that writing
