This weekend I marked another check beside one of the items on my bucket list. Truth be told I don’t have a written list, but I do have things in my mind that I’d like to accomplish or just do for fun before I pass on. For those who follow my blogs you know I talked about the television series, The...

After a drive through Stone Mountain State Park the other day all I can say is I’m sad. Stone Mountain is only a few miles from my house. Several times a year we travel there to hike or camp, other times to just ride through and take in the natural beauty and watch the deer graze. On a typical late...

What does a girl do when she puts her coffee bag, (it’s just like a tea bag except it’s coffee inside the bag) in her coffee cup, runs it full of water, sticks it in the microwave and one minute and forty-five seconds later when she takes it out the water is still cold?

In the late seventies we planned a camping trip with my husband Jerry’s first cousin Alan, and his wife Debbie. We were to meet at the campground at Stone Mountain, in North Carolina. Alan gave Jerry a twenty-dollar bill to help pay for the food we’d buy for the trip. I know. You’re thinking, you...

I was born, raised and still live in the Foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. While growing up my days in the summer were filled with working in the garden, tobacco priming, playing in the creek, catching Lightning and June bugs and worrying about school starting in the fall....

I just finished going over the first round of editing notes for, The Color of My Heart from Brenda, my editor at Ambassador International. I was both humbled and intimidated when I opened her email on Sunday afternoon. Her comments were: “It was such a joy to work on a manuscript with strong, well-...

I love watching hummingbirds. Right now there are anywhere from four to eight fluttering back and forth fighting their way to the sweet nectar inside the artificial feeder hanging on my porch. I not only love watching them but also enjoy listening to the sounds of their wings as they beat rapidly...

There’s a lot going on in my life this summer: Vegetable canning, hanging out with the granddaughter, sitting in the cool waters of New River, writing books, and editing. This week my personal editor sent me the first edit of a children’s picture book I’ve written titled, The Manger Mouse. I can’t...
