Blueberries in the Snow

One of my husbands favorite desserts is Blueberries in the Snow. Tonight I taught Ash how to make it. She is absolutely wonderful in the kitchen.

Class of 2011 - Homecoming

I graduated from high school in 1990. Even though that was over two decades ago I still remember it like it was yesterday. I remember the senior pictures, our homecoming and building a float for the parade, along with all the laughter and tears spread out over an entire school year. Remember when your parents told you to cherish those times because they were supposed to be the best years of your life and how one day you would long to be back at high school? It seems that now I'm saying those exact same things to my middle child. My son, Zac, is part of the proud class of 2011.

Quick Note

Quick note:

Yes, I'm still working on my 365 Days to Improve My Life. Learning new things, working towards a healthier lifestyle, and thinking more positive makes life easier and more fun.

Blogging ... well, I love it but don't do it near as much as I should. My most recent excuses are that I have been quilting, painting, being creative and doctoring my computer (it's getting on in age). Soon I will be consumed with NaNoWriMo. Following this writing insanity come the holidays so I my days as a blogger (snicker, snicker ... if that's what I can call it) will resume in a more regular fashion eventually. 

So, all in all, life is good and the family is great and blogging suffers another busy day.

NaNoWriMo Sponsorship

 Dear Friends, Family, and Righteous Supporters,

As many of you know, the only thing I love more than reading is writing. Last year I participated in NaNoWriMo '09 and was spurred on by the encouragement of my family and friends. Well, this November I am doing it again and need your help more than ever.

For those of you who didn't have the pleasure of sharing in my road to writing insanity last year, let me explain what NaNoWriMo is. National Novel Writing Month (lovingly dubbed NaNoWriMo) is a global writing challenge sponsored by in the nonprofit Office of Letters and Light. Participants spend November writing a 50,000-word book in just 30 days.

I will proudly be among the participating authors this year. In addition to my writerly duties, I'm raising money to help the Office of Letters and Light continue to put on free creative writing programs for kids and adults in classrooms, communities, and libraries around the world.

Every dollar I raise will keep my spirits high as I write my way towards the realization of my creative goals. More importantly, your contribution will help National Novel Writing Month and its Young Writers Program create a more engaged and inspiring world.

Click HERE to sponsor me in November for NaNoWriMo.

Thank you so much for your support of my writing!
