Things I Couldn’t Have Predicted Five Years Ago.

Who knows what’s next?

Life is full of surprises. As much as I loved teaching, I didn’t expect to be tutoring 20 or more hours a week. I need a day planner now. (NICE!)

I would have denied that I could self-publish my own books or that my only sale would be an ebook to a publisher of erotic romance. (Really?)

Editing freelance seemed like it might be an occasional thing, not a business with a queue.  I have regular clients. (LOVE IT!) Almost 3 years ago I became an editor for a new publisher and now I’m Vice President of the Gilded Dragonfly Books! (Pinch me now.)

I retired but now I work more than most people with full-time jobs and I LOVE it!

I’d have laughed if you’d told me I’d do a monthly Facebook event.  Facebook scared me! Now I host a monthly event with Scarlet. https://www.facebook.com/ARomanceCaper

Spring is when the Meadowlark Sings

Enjoy a lovely post by a friend.

Spring is coming to the valley this week, and we’re all ready to kick up our heels after the long winter. The post below is from last year, but it fits.

Grady, soft-coated Wheaton terrior, enjoying spring day

Heavy wet snow fell last night and the trees are laden, my crocus buried. But several afternoons ago after the rain showers ended, the day turned mild and I pulled some overwintering weeds from one of my flower borders. A whole wheelbarrow full. While bent contentedly to my labors, I heard the sweet trill of a meadowlark, my favorite songbird. Silent today. When the sun shines and the weather softens, I will hear it sing again. This crazy weather is typical of early…

This is not the official cover…just using it for now, however,  it is the official blurb from Book 2 of The Twisted Sisters Club Series: Sex, Secrets, and Happily Ever Afters.(To be released August 4th, 2015. )

The set-up: Travis Wellington and Angel Talbot have just met at Travis’ twin brother’s wedding. Hours later they’re in a Casino restaurant, at Lake Tahoe, and it’s in the wee hours of the morning on New Year’s day. Below is part of their game of 20 questions that gets a little off-color.

“Fine. Back to our game. Top or bottom?”
She let out a bubbly laugh. “After everything I just said you’re going there?”
“A guy’s got to try.” Travis clasped his hands around his coffee cup and shrugged.
“Fine.” She leaned back and crossed her arms. “But I thought everyone knew food cooks best on the middle rack.”
“Touché, I deserve that.” He tipped his…

Good People and snow!

Originally posted on Pink Fuzzy Slippers Authors:

Last week we Georgia folks saw snow! Yes, snow.  Yankees comment on our shutting down everything when even one snowflake falls.  Last year we didn’t shut down and people were stuck in a storm of snow and ice. There had been warnings but a lot of people headed home at the same time and a tad late. Truckers from all over lined the highways and interstates.  School buses full of children spent the night in those buses. Kids spent the night in school, causing outrage for those poos kids and those stupid southerners who didn’t know how to handle snow.  Many good folks proved Southern hospitality still exists and took water to as many stranded motorists as possible. A lot of good came from the bad.

Back to my recent experience. Snow was imminent, according the weather folks and I needed to make a trip to the bank, my Ex…

I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date!

I borrowed your blog again!

Are you the type of person who runs late? I am, so I thought I’d share some common-sense ideas because being late isn’t an attractive personal trait.

Prepare ahead for an easier, stress-free morning by doing the following:

1. One Day before:

Put water in the tea kettle and prepare your coffee machine. Don’t buy your coffee on the way to work. It’s too expensive plus you lose time waiting in line.

Check the weather forecast the night before so you’re dressed appropriately. In fact, check it for the week.

If you have pets fill their water and bowl with food.

If you’re a gym person, have your bag ready to go

Pack all lunches the night before.

2. The Weekend before:

Plan what you’re wearing for the week and wash and iron what’s needed.

Get your grocery shopping done and plan those meals ahead for the week.

3. Don’t…

Home made Humidifiers

Originally posted on The Italian Blog:

Thanks in advance to our local weatherman in the Charlotte, NC area for sharing the following tips:

According to the Mayo clinic, the optimal amount of humidity for a room is between 30-50 percent. A hygrometer measures the amount of humidity in a room. You can purchase them at Amazon.com for $9.99.

If you suffer from sore throats during the winter season, the culprit may be because your home is too dry. Many of our furnaces are running non-stop.

Here’s some ideas for home-made humidifiers:

1. Simply place a glass of water on your heater and let the water evaporate.

2. If you don’t have a flat top heater, soak a clean car-washing sponge in warm water. Squeeze to remove excess water and place in a punctured plastic freezer bag. Place in rooms as needed. When reusing, place sponge in microwave for 1 minute to rid of bacteria.

3. Keep…
