The End Is Near…

What is it about the fall that has me scrambling to finish everything I ever started and never finished? I know the answer is, because the end is near. The end of the year that is, and my goals are up there hanging on my office wall (the office I don’t write or work in) letting me know I’m about to fail.

I only set 10-goals for myself each New Year and I usually do pretty well, this year not so much. I’m going to give myself a pass and change up my plan a bit. In the mean time I will keep writing and moving forward. There is still plenty of time to catch up and there is all that writing fuel (candy) to look forward to this month.

Angel Bumps, Hello from Heaven…

Angel Bumps, Hello From Heaven I got to know Anne Bardsley in a Facebook Group we’re both members of and I know for sure I cannot wait to meet her in real life! We have so much in common and during a recent phone call I found out she grew up in Wayne, Pa. and I had been in Wayne that day for lunch. She lives in a Florida beach town now and plans to do only 3-things a day and one of them is to go to the beach! I’m looking forward to her coming ‘home’ for a few book signings. Anne gets up at 4:30 am while it’s peaceful and quiet (until she cracks herself up) to write in her sunroom.

Foodie Friday Fragments…

 What did you do all week?

Well it’s the last week of summer and I am kicking and screaming (carefully though because I’m still wearing flip flops.) What is it about fall that leaves me feeling like if I don’t move faster, I’ll be run over? My mind realizes it’s time to get back to reality, back to work but my body still wants to lie on the beach. I’m trying to get in the mood. While meeting with a client at Panera Bread the other day I ordered tomato soup. It was so good but it was still 85 degrees outside.

21 Days of Summer…

Foodie Friday Fragments

September 1, 2017

Friday Fragments are those bits and pieces of your week that are many but brief; too short for a stand-alone blog post, but too good to discard. Collect humorous observations, “Heard” items, and other small gems throughout your week and put them together in a Friday Fragments post. Add a recipe or something ‘foodie’ from your week. Leave me a link to your post in the comments so I can read your fragments!

SEPTEMBER! I know it comes at the same time every year and every year I am not ready. I’m a summer soul and I had to smile when my favorite local weather gal, Sue Serio said we still have 22 days of summer left.

10 Car Buying Tips

 

“sponsored post.”

Purchasing a new or used vehicle can be extremely stressful and we often end up with cars we didn’t want because we felt pressured to buy. There is nothing better than knowledge to fuel us with car buying confidence.
