Tuesday Tunes: Shake it Off

Posted at Dec 30, 2014 2:13 pm in , , , , , ,

It’s coming to the end of the year. This has been a tough one in my family. My mom’s Alzheimer’s disease has taken a huge toll on her this year. The occasional glimpses of recognition and the “I love yous’ are quite rare now and will eventually fade, but those moments…they are golden. They are […]

Monday Memories: Secret Ingredients

Posted at Dec 15, 2014 3:13 pm in , , ,

Old family recipes are the best. I remember my Grandpa’s Rigatoni sauce, my Nonnie’s chocolate cake recipe and a few others. But since it’s the holidays, I have to mention our family Christmas Cookie recipe. I remember my mom pulling out an old cookbook, it’s pages slightly stained with vanilla, and turning to a page with […]

Wacky Weekend: Christmas Can Be Funny

Posted at Dec 13, 2014 5:09 pm in , , , , ,

My favorite memories of Christmas are candlelight services, singing Silent Night outside, all of us holding candles, and a star-filled sky above us. There was something magic and holy about those nights during my childhood. And that is still where the heart of Christmas lies for me. But…there is also fun and joy during the […]

Wacky Weekend: Babies Make Me Smile

Posted at Dec 6, 2014 2:29 pm in , , , ,

Okay, so this weekend, I’m going to be doing a little Christmas baking–which in itself should be comical, however, I wanted to share one of the videos that truly makes me grin. Just because it’s a wacky weekend :-). Babies really do make me smile.

Fitness Friday: Water, Water, Everywhere

Posted at Dec 5, 2014 3:40 pm in , , ,

One of the things I’ve learned about myself during my health journey is that I don’t drink enough water. It’s easy enough to figure out when I do. I feel better, my skin looks better, I breathe better, and I don’t build up water. I’m VERY sensitive to all kinds of salt; I have been […]

Tuesday Tunes: Love Conquers All

Posted at Dec 2, 2014 6:40 am in , , ,

Sometimes a song haunts you. In my stories, I’ve always been drawn to characters who don’t give up, who have faith and who sacrifice. And who fight for what’s right…and for the person they care about. I think that’s why this song touches me so much. Do you have a song that touches you?

Monday Memories: The Ants Go Marching

Posted at Dec 1, 2014 2:38 pm in , , , , ,

The garage clean-up continues at my house. What a mess. But with each box, new memories surface. I was a lucky kid. I had parents who loved me, an irritating younger brother (who I adored) and a slew of aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents. I know those childhood memories have influenced my writing. Small little […]

Fitness Friday: The Day After Thanksgiving

Posted at Nov 28, 2014 4:51 pm in , , , , ,

Wow. It’s the day after Thanksgiving. We ate, we drank, we ate some more. And man, today, I’m not hungry AT ALL! Yesterday I didn’t keep track of what I ate. Part of me is glad. Did you know the average adult consumes about 4000 calories on Thanksgiving? Not sure if I did, but it […]

Happy Thanksgiving

Posted at Nov 27, 2014 6:12 pm in , , ,

Today is a good day to concentrate on gratitude. How, you may ask? I won’t pretend it’s always easy, but what I have learned is that for me, living every day with an attitude of gratitude makes the tough times easier and the good times truly joyous. Not that I don’t get mired in hopelessness […]

Tuesday Tunes: Mr. Rogers Remix

Posted at Nov 25, 2014 2:51 pm in , , , ,

Okay, so not all tunes are the latest and greatest pop hit. Some take you back to childhood, and in this holiday season I’ve been doing a lot of walking down memory lane (as I told you during yesterday’s blog). This catchy ditty, I just can’t shake off (wink-wink to Ms. Taylor Swift). Probably because […]

Monday Memories: The Storytelling Bug Bit Me Over Tacos

Posted at Nov 24, 2014 2:03 pm in , , , , ,

One of the most common questions I’m asked is ‘when did you start writing?’ The truth is, I’ve been writing forever, but the real answer to that question is a little different, because for me, it’s always been the storytelling that grabbed my interest first. I lost my heart to storytelling when I was a […]

Wacky Weekend – Tim Conway’s Elephant Story

Posted at Nov 23, 2014 5:12 pm in , , , , ,

Hi everyone! Sometimes we just need to laugh. This video is almost five minutes long, but what can be said of Tim Conway on the Carol Burnett Show? There’s a small cuss word at the end, but I couldn’t stop laughing. Enjoy this wacky weekend!

Fitness Friday: It’s All About the Feet!

Posted at Nov 21, 2014 4:08 pm in , , , , ,

The worst thing about working out: it actually does help stress; it does make you stronger; it does give you a sense of wellbeing… and for every week you miss, it seems to take months to get back to where you were. I hate it! Except that it truly does do everything advertised. Why couldn’t […]

Techno Thursday: What the heck is Nanotechnology?

Posted at Nov 20, 2014 2:53 pm in , , , , ,

Okay, I admit it. I’m a geek. And occasionally in my books I’ll put something a little fun and techie! I occasionally even get a comment about how some things in my books are unbelievable. BUT… there’s a lot of science these days that is true…and unbelievable. Nanotechnology is a science that defies the laws of […]

Tuesday Tunes: A Hero Comes Along

Posted at Nov 18, 2014 8:00 am in , , , , , , , , , ,

Some days I wonder if heroes exist anymore. I’m an optimist at heart, but sometimes I look around and have to wonder…where have all the heroes gone? I’m not talking about celebrities or sports figures or the rich and famous. I mean the person who sacrifices without expectation. The man or woman who does the […]
