They’re Closer Than You Think

Monday, October 14th, 2013

Now that I’ve finished book 3 and handed it in I’m left tapping my fingers until I get my editing notes and have to look at the final book in my Creative Hearts series for the big clean up to get it ready for production.

In the meantime it’s time to face the fact that it’s time to move on and step into a new world of my own making. Now sure, I could very well add on and on and on to this series, but it really is time to start something now. There are new stories, new ideas and most importantly, new characters that are starting to take shape and voice in my head, while the old ones are enjoying their Happily Ever Afters or at least Happily for Nows off in the sunset. Yes, the time is now.

You can’t live your life in the rearview mirror. All the while hitting the breaks and holding up traffic. There’s too much crash potential. As the warning heeds, the objects behind you are closer than you think.

Summer Breeze

Thursday, August 1st, 2013

What’s a better excuse to leave the cooking up to someone else than a cool summer evening and a perfect sunset. Last night the family and I headed out to one of our favorite spots on City Island for a quick and casual dinner of fried seafood out by the water. It was a perfect night of low humidity and lovely breezes. The dinner was hot and tasty and the dessert was sweet and cool.

As the DH drove home with the baseball game playing low on the radio, I was practically asleep by the time we pulled into our driveway, lulled and contentment as I was by a full belly and a stress free evening. This is what summer is made for. What are some of your favorite casual summer traditions?

Summer Stretch

Monday, June 24th, 2013

Last week I got to experience yoga for a cause with my DD and it was wonderful to welcome the summer season by stretching outdoors and such a strange experience for me to feel the heat of the concrete under my back and legs. I don’t think it’s something I’ll forget anytime soon. I will say I woke up sore from all the downward dogs and planks, but by the next day the kinks were gone and I was left with a wonderful sense of relaxation and a reminder to stop and take a moment to appreciate the solid warmth of the ground under my feet.

The Jackster

Wednesday, June 19th, 2013

Here’s a little deceptive Jack cuteness to get you over the hump today. Isn’t he looking sweet and oh so harmless? Yeah, don’t believe everything your eyes see. He needs to start doing his job and get a little more muse-y. My words are not flowing as they should for this story. I think he’s angling for me to add a dog but I’m standing firm on my no dogs or teens in the books rule… so far.

See I told you the pics would be on the way. This is what happens when I have to start a new story. Sorry, but it should at least be a colorful summer, though less wordy.

 

All the best,

Point & Shoot

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

For my birthday last week I got a fantastic new camera that his been on my wish list for quite a while. A fab Olympus PEN. Isn’t it cute? I’m still learning the ropes with it and I think I will be for quite a while. Excuse me while my blog turns into my own personal photo album while I take up my new hobby. I’ve always been a closet photog. Please bear with me.

Any new hobby you’re thinking of taking up?

My thoughts are with just everyone this week, casting a wide net,

but especially those in Boston and Texas.

Here’s to a much better and more peaceful week next week.

 

All the best,
