Here I Go Again

Another post with comments turned off. It's not like I don't want to hear from anyone. It's like I'm going to be more off-the-grid than on-the-grid for the next couple of weeks. When I'm fully back online, I promise I'll turn comments back on, and we can have a chat. In the meantime, enjoy these… Continue reading Here I Go Again

Happy WP Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary with WordPress.com! You registered on WordPress.com 13 years ago. Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging. My, how time flies. In truth, I have not been steadily blogging since I registered with WordPress on April 9, 2007. I "paused" my blog for a few years (and much later for a… Continue reading Happy WP Anniversary!

No, It’s Not Your Imagination

Hello, friends. You may (or may not) have noticed changes to my blog. When I downgraded to the Premium plan, my WP theme reverted to its original theme, and so I've been searching for a new one. There are so many! I'm keen on the "Responsive Layout" which means it should look good whether you're… Continue reading No, It’s Not Your Imagination

Mi Casa, Su Casa #amwriting #MondayBlogs

Still under construction. Mind that step. Things are changing around here. Just baby steps right now, but so far I'm enjoying the process. As I've already written about here and here, I'm trying to give my blog a more professional appearance. At least more organized. I'll settle for that. I've added a page for my… Continue reading Mi Casa, Su Casa #amwriting #MondayBlogs

Under Construction . . . Soon #dancinginthedark #MondayBlogs

I've done it. I've upgraded my WordPress account. Now I just need to learn how to use all my new fancy features. It will be a slooooooow process. I've gotten good tips and advice from other bloggers, but given my day job, my WIP, and my cats, I'll be taking baby steps. [What about my… Continue reading Under Construction . . .

Update: On Hold Yet Again #HurricaneIrma #TGIF

We are fine. Irma was still a bitch but in lowercase letters. We prepared for the worst and it didn't happen, at least not to us. We have power and some minor debris to clean up, but that's it. So, now, please turn your attention back to those are still suffering from Harvey and Irma,… Continue reading Update: On Hold Yet Again #HurricaneIrma #TGIF

Living in the Moment: Sort of #MondayBlogs #TEFL #TESL

I feel that I owe you all an explanation. I've been ... hmmm ... relatively absent over the last few weeks. Some of you may have noticed. Some not. No matter. A few weeks ago, I turned 60. And my husband retired from his state job. And I started looking into a second career. Yeah,… Continue reading Living in the Moment: Sort of #MondayBlogs #TEFL #TESL

Semi-Traditional Book Review: Reading in Progress #MondayBlogs #bookreview #memoir

Usually I don't review a book I haven't yet finished. I definitely don't review books that I don't plan to finish (for whatever reason). I'm making an exception here. This weekend I started reading Kevin Brennan's memoir-in-vignettes, In No Particular Order.  Readers of this blog already know I'm a Brennan groupie fan and I've pretty… Continue reading Semi-Traditional Book Review: Reading in Progress #MondayBlogs #bookreview #memoir
