2015: goals are the new resolutions

(photo: pixgood.com) spoiler alert: this is not about actually running and has nothing to do with a Dixie Chicks song. or kittens. sorry. yesterday morning, i hunkered down for the very important work of reading my new month/new year horoscopes. this takes some dedication, y’all. and about 3 large cups of coffee, apparently. it’s a […]

(photo: cats-pictures.org via Grimafust Photo) as i sit here getting a jump on a couple posts, soup is simmering on the stove (the last of the turkey that’s been frozen since Thanksgiving with veggies and brown/wild rice . . . mmm).

my 2014: part 3

(photo: cats-pictures.org via Grimafust Photo) wow. 10 hours in a car sure gives you a lot of time to think. we just wrapped up the annual holiday pilgrimage up to Richmond to see family and friends. as usual, it was too short and we didn’t get to see everyone we wanted to. but the time […]

NaBloPoMo day 16: Sunday short #2

yep. i completely blew this one off last weekend. Sunday shorts was a totally stupid commitment on top of NaBloPoMo. and i have never been called an over-achiever, y’all. so not sure at all what i was thinking, except that there was some kind of writer’s high and bizarrely non-religious, but god-must-hate-me kind of guilt […]

Blogtober14: hair of the dog

my current situation on November 1 at 11:00 a.m. kind of a mess, y’all. when i finished my final Blogtober14 post on Thursday night and scheduled it for Friday, i breathed a sigh of relief, felt a sense of accomplishment and went about the business of Halloween — without a single thought about what i […]
