Did Ya Miss Me?

It’s been weeks! I’ve been crazy busy with no time to do a blog. Squeezing some out now as the rest of the time until Christmas is even crazy busier. But that’s the holidays. While I thank God it’s just once a year, I wouldn’t change a thing. BW and I took our November week … Continue reading Did Ya Miss Me? Read More...

More bits/more pieces 11/4/2017

Here are a few things that popped up on social media this week. Hope you enjoy! Here are the solutions to the crossword and cryptic puzzles on the inside of the US/Canada Secrets in Death hardcover jackets: As we speed toward release date, St. Martin’s asked me to shoot a short video of my reaction … Continue reading More bits/more pieces 11/4/2017 Read More...

Bits/Pieces October 30

When last we met, Nora was home from work, ready to dive into a brand new book after a wonderful week in NYC.  I stayed for a couple more days — mainly to take photos like this one: but in the end, we each settled into routine back home.   And routine is important, but not … Continue reading Bits/Pieces October 30 Read More...

Sunday in New York

We arrive on Tues, to summer in October weather. After unpacking, our initial group—me, BW, Jason, Laura—hit the streets and the shops. I have an agenda every October trip, and that’s to get as close as possible to finishing my Christmas shopping as I can. Get a good start on that agenda before it’s time … Continue reading Sunday in New York Read More...

Work and Reward

I’ve been working pretty hard since our return from France. I like working hard, so that’s all good. But I like play time with pals, too. I had a great day/evening/night with good girl pals this week on our Try To Make It Annual Girls In Boonsboro trip. I get into town early enough to … Continue reading Work and Reward Read More...

On contests and publishing and such

From Nora: I want to address the disappointment from countries not included in the contests and giveaways offered by St. Martin’s Press. First, I understand that disappointment. The announcements are presented on my FB page–which is international so everybody hears about them. Those who can’t participate feel excluded. However, St. Martin’s Press is my US … Continue reading On contests and publishing and such Read More...

All Quiet on the Western Maryland Front

And that’s just how I like it. It’s been a good week here, a routine week–my favorite kind. Work, workouts, dogs, my favorite teenage boy after school. And the weather’s holding onto summer just a little longer. Since my man took off for a week at the beach, and I stayed home, it’s been a … Continue reading All Quiet on the Western Maryland Front Read More...

Being Home

Summer–my favorite season–is winding down. We’re approaching Mabon, the Autumn Equinox. With that fleeting balance of day and night, most harvesting’s done. My tomatoes sure are. My garden’s got the late summer shabbies though there are some pretty fabulous spots and corners of color and bloom still. Before much longer, I’ll be thinking about making … Continue reading Being Home Read More...

Bits/Pieces, Sunday 9/10

I don’t want to lose touch this fall so on those weekends Nora doesn’t share a blog post, I’l share updates. The adventurers arrived home safely on August 27.  Word is that Nora got home, minimally unpacked, napped for a bit, then watched the Game of Thrones season finale.  She had to do this because … Continue reading Bits/Pieces, Sunday 9/10 Read More...
