BABIT (Houston, TX)

On Wednesday, a fellow author reached out to be about attending the Books are Bigger in Texas Author Event being held in Houston, Texas asking if I wanted to attend. What girl could refuse a well known event, especially when she had no other plans for the weekend?! So I went. The event was held in the 1940 Air Terminal Museum and was very fun. I was pleased to meet a wonderful woman RR Born who was my table mate for the day. All day long I was able to speak new people as well as see familiar faces. The readers were hungry for books coming and going with bags and wagons full, smiling the whole time. The weather the day before had been much cooler but surely warmed up on us Saturday. The air was full of airplanes landing and taking off and chatter from the crowd. The first thirty minutes or so the planes coming in and going

Reading from the grave

While on vacation many people visit sites they have never seen or not seen in awhile, I visit a cemetery. Yep. I grew up in Liberty County, Georgia and the history just seems through the air. So, where else would you find the best history but a historical cemetery! During my visit I did a short reading from my book Born of The Veil and thought I’d share with you all. I chose a scene from the book that takes place in this actual cemetery. I also give you a nice view of the gorgeous mossy oaks.

A fishy weekend

Since my husband made it back home we thought we’d take advantage of his time between trips and the great weather, this weekend was a start! Last week we both got our fishing license and post access passes so we can try to hit some hot spots and get some great catches. Setting out at a decent time on Saturday morning we checked the area map and found a pond we wanted to try out, but first to find the road to get there. After a stop at another location and some direction assistance, we were on our way. Bumpy road but great view. We were not away from sounds of cars and trains but we got plenty of nature to look at, cause the fish were NOT biting. ūüôā   Our day ended at a new location and catching fish! YAY. Success. We each caught one crappie and white bass. I even held one with no gloves on (that

What’s in your fridge?

Writing prompt I chose for the week is “If I looked in your fridge what would I find?”  ‚Äč‚ÄčWell, obviously I couldn’t begin to fathom what’s in your fridge… So, I’ll share a little funny from mine recently.  A few weeks ago my husband and I decided to eat out for dinner for almost a week, this is such a rare thing for us because I really feel it wasteful. This of course created a lot of space in the fridge, which our kids were not used to. The oldest girl swings by the house, and like all kids coming home they go straight to the fridge to see what the folks have. Her remark upon opening the door, “You guys only have beer and water in the fridge and some cheese!”  ‚Äč‚ÄčYup, that’s right we were well stocked on a variety of beers and cheeses plus our jug of water. Secretly I felt bad and went to get groceries

Coastal Crafting Cousins

So, how is everyone doing? Me… well, I’ve been quite busy to be honest. After the book signing and spending time with family it was decided upon that my cousin, Tina, and I shall indeed start a crafting store where will sell the lovely items we make. And so the work begins. We have begun to create an item inventory list, set up ideas for the holidays, and this weekend the yarn shopping begins! Oh yes, yarn shopping! For any crafters they know the joy of buying the supplies they need. So for me… I get to go to Michael’s and shop, shop, shop! I’ve already stalked, eh hem…scoped out their website for the sale and clearance items. ūüôā But let me first show you a project I’ve already completed and one I’ve started on … Here are some wash clothes and face scrubbers I made with 100% cotton yarn. (Same yarn from my bag I shared recently.) I did
