Happy New Year – Catching Up with You

It’s a funny thing, but after the mad rush before the holidays when it seems there’s never enough time, once the holidays hit time seems to stand still, at least for me.  Routines are put on hold as we disconnect from daily life to reconnect with loved ones.  It’s all so worth it.

Christmas – Ready or Not

My little Elf on a Shelf has been watching me with bemused delight as I navigated my way through the ups and downs of the last two weeks. 


Christmas is only days away and it looks like I’m going to make it.  For a while there I wasn’t too sure.  Nothing too dire, mind you, but a complication that could have thrown a large monkey wrench into the whole Christmas works.  Let me explain.

Linda LaRoche Interviews Me on French Style for American Women

I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed by a very special and talented lady, Linda LaRoche. 


While on a book tour to promote her fabulous new book Dust Unto Shadow, Linda had the pleasure of meeting some very interesting women and decided to do a series of posts for her blog Do Write profiling three of those creative women.  I was honored to be among them.

Feeling Blue

I was feeling a little blue yesterday and not in a “steppin’ out in my best blue hat” kinda way.

No, just feeling a little blue over something I missed out on and something I was looking forward to until I delved into it a little deeper.  For the record, I love the Color BLUEIt projects intelligence, efficiency and a willingness to communicate.  Considered to be a cool, calm, somewhat aloof color, the person wearing BLUE is the one you turn to in a crisis. 

So, why was I feeling a bit BLUE?

Five Little Things I Do to Maintain my Weight

Americans are an impatient people, and we don’t like to wait when it comes to losing weight.   We want that quick fix – the crash diet, the miracle elixir, the magic pill – that will melt away those pounds lickety banana split. 



At some point in our lives, many of us find ourselves locked in mortal hand-to-mouth combat with our weight and the older we get the harder it is for us to win that battle.  Our metabolisms just slow down, so no matter how many miles we run, we still need to cut back on the calories. 

Here are five tips you might find helpful that have worked well for me over the years.

The Spelling Bee

I have always been an ace speller.  When I was in school it was simply an article of faith that girls were good at spelling and boys weren’t.  If a boy was even suspected of being a good speller, his very manhood was thrown into question.  This attitude still prevails among men of my generation. 
 

I truly believe many of them would be less devastated to discover that John Wayne had in fact been gay than to find out he was a whiz at spelling.
