some noteworthy thoughts

First of all, I get to decide whether it is noteworthy - - it's my blog.

I did not start the new year off according to plan.  I sort of went right by without thinking about my "spend an hour each day writing" and "put away the clean laundry" ideas.  A friend told me that it was because new year came in the middle of the week.  I think that's part of it.  Also, my kids were still home.  It was still vacation.   Christmas vacation always completely messes me up.
So.... today is the start for me!  I will be doing the above mentioned things today.  Just so you know.

I don't see the point of eating eggs unless they taste like butter and salt.

I love my new blog layout and it isn't even red!!  I hope you like it, too, but if you don't, well, too bad.  I find it very relaxing and soothing.

I am reading The Godfather for a book club.  It is a very big book.  I've never seen the movie.  It is rated R - the book; don't know about the movie.  So I am trying to read with one eye closed so I miss the bad stuff.

I've heard people comment that they get tired of their Christmas decorations.  I can't imagine.  I could leave mine up all the time.  But I don't.  I try to get them down before June.  This year I am taking them down this week.

My friend Robbie's husband is improving steadily.  His mental capacities seem to be fully functioning, but he is still sleeping a lot.  Hopefully this week he will be able to come to a rehab hospital in Denver since he is now in another city.  That will make life easier for dear Robbie.  

So, the holidays are over.  Time to get back into the blog mode, right?  Seems it all slowed way down there for awhile.  Fewer comments and fewer posts on other blogs.  I did alright, though, didn't I?  I tried.


  1. Love the new blog look!

    Your eggs sound might good to me!

    "Time to get back into the blog mode" - I'm struggling today with getting back into the life mode. Packing lunches, trips to the big W store, figuring out what to fix for dinner. . . . I wish January 2 were spring!

  2. LOVE the look!

    I could also have Christmas decorations around ALL the time!

  3. Kay, I love the new blog look! Will you help me redesign mine. New Year, New Look sounds good. John is doing great. They may transfer him to Denver rehab today! Wouldn't that be a hoot!
    Love you and love your blog!

  4. You try to take them down by June. LOL. That's funny. I once had a neighbor who left outside lights up and on until Easter. Drove me crazy. I almost wrote a letter.

  5. Just stopping by. I noticed your profile had "bigfoot" as an interest...very intriguing.

    I once wrote a short story about bigfoot...two actualy.

    What is it you're trying to write on an hour each day?

  6. Brandon, Thanks for stopping by.
    I am writing a novel. Biblical Fiction.
    I see you write Sci-fi and spec-fic. Cool.
    Have you checked out Marcher Lord Press? New publisher specializing in your genres.

  7. Yes! I'm a big fan of what Marcher Lord Press is doing. I've been following Jeff Gerke since I found out about his website

    Interestingly, my co-author and I tried to get our sci-fi novel published with traditional Christian publishers, but it just wasn't happening. We turned to secular publishing houses and got our big break (

    If Marcher Lord would have been around back then, we'd have definitely tried sending our manuscript to them.

    So, biblical fiction. Does that mean it's historical biblical fiction? Or is it contemporary?

    Nice to meet a fellow writer!

  8. We had a great time at your house.

    I enjoyed your noteworthy thoughts in the blog. I don't know if I can be more consistent in my blog writing. I don't have much to say these days.

  9. I like your new colors and such. I will be happy just to be posting once a week this year. Ok, and good news about Robbie's husband. I will send you some Christmas pics soon also. Bye And Doodle-bug got into her computer. P's friend did it for her and now she isnt allowed to have a password. :)


I love to hear your thoughts!
