October. You know what that means. You missed all the Halloween stuff at the store and all the Christmas accoutrements have been placed on the shelves. Wait. What?! I know. You also missed the Thanksgiving decorations. Thankfully you have kept the centerpiece from last year…and the year before that. It also means that Inktober hasContinue reading “Free Book Friday: Oct 1”

Free Book Friday/Weekend Wrap-up: Whaaaahappen!?

Weekend Wrap-up: The “Puffy Shirt” Phenomenon

Weekend Wrap-up: Wet, Wet, Wet.
(Note: I wrote this yesterday) I walked in the rain today. I didn’t care that I got wet.

Each puddle was like an old friend, notContinue reading “Weekend Wrap-up: Wet, Wet, Wet.”
Thursday Thoughts: Fires, Floods, and Droughts. Oh My.
The International Climate Committee (or whatever they are called) came out with a dire report that said climate change is definitely caused by human activity. Really… The industrial revolution started this situation, fueled by coal, oil, greed, and consumerism, blackening the skies and blocking out sunlight for days at a time. Didn’t anyone look upContinue reading “Thursday Thoughts: Fires, Floods, and Droughts. Oh My.”
