I arrived home from a trip to California on Tuesday night and sneezed. I don't want to get sick. My mind raced back to the time when I pressed the button on an elevator with my knuckle (I'm so smart) and then rubbed my itchy eye with the same body part. (I'm so stupid!) Or it could...

I cranked out four cakes today. Four! I should have quit while I was ahead. I could have spent the time inking my Christmas card. Mistakes were made.
Dear Holiday Diary, After a week of decorating, I still am surrounded by doodads and ditzies just begging to be made into some form of centerpiece, swag or other holiday shimmery thing. It doesn't help that I keep looking up at my cupboards with the memory of this ceiling I spied while in Denver. Thanks... Continue Reading →

We've driven more miles in less time, but plan to stop along the way. What kind of adventures are ahead? There will be quite... Continue Reading →
After five years of writing for Susie Lindau's Wild Ride, it's official! They'll see me coming now... Wild tags for a Wild Rider. Would you ever buy vanity license plates? What would yours say?
As I watch clouds gather and raindrops ripple in concentric rings on the pond, maternal instincts kick into high gear. A storm is coming.
I’m not sure what happens in other people’s heads, but I tend to overshare what happens in mine. It wasn’t long ago that the words, “Think BIG!” popped into my brain interrupting thoughts of blogging and book writing. Well, it happened again. While I washed dishes one morning, my mind wandered to thoughts about my... Continue Reading →
