Well, I'm finally going to do it.  I've been meaning to set up a monthly newsletter for a long time now, and I've run out of excuses not to.  So here goes:

Phew!  That wasn't so bad after all! :)

Celebrate the Small Things - Spring Has Sprung!


I think it's finally safe to say spring is here in North Texas!  A few weeks ago, Mister and I had our side yard landscaped.  It went from a sad looking patch of weeds to a beautiful garden, and the knock-out roses are going nuts!  It's so fun to wake up and see new blooms every day.  This weekend, we plan to work on the front yard, and to plant some additional flowers in our planters.  Hopefully everything will look great when we're done!











Are the flowers blooming in your part of the world?  I hope so!


If you've been reading my blog, you know that Fridays are reserved for a post where I celebrate the little things that have happened during the week. This is a blog hop created by Vikki and now hosted by Lexa Cain, and it's one of my favorite blogging things to do.  I encourage you to check out her blog and the full list of participants, because who doesn't love reading about good things?

Celebrate the Small Things - Symphony edition


Just a short post this week, as I'm feeling a bit swamped.

This was the first week back from spring break, and it's always kind of tough to return to work after a vacation.  Needless to say, I'm pretty tired. :)

As for celebrations, Mister and I are going to the symphony this weekend.  They're playing Beethoven's 5th symphony--he's my favorite composer, and I'm really looking forward to hearing it live.

How was your week?  Any big plans for the weekend?

Spring Cleaning Giveaway Hop!


My thanks to I Am A Reader, Not A Writer for hosting this giveaway!

I've been fortunate to attend several writer and reader conferences over the years, and I always walk away with boxes of free books.  At the time, I have every hope that I will read said books, but then life interferes. <sigh>

This year, I've decided to share some of the wealth.  The prize for this giveaway is an assortment of 5 romance novels.  They can range from contemporary, historical, paranormal, and even YA (no erotica).

Since I have so many books, I'll pick 3 winners to receive 5 books each. Sound good?  Use the Rafflecopter form below to enter (US only please)!  Good luck! :)

Family traditions?

Thanks, Google! :)

Today is my birthday (yay!).  And for the second year in a row, Mister is sick (boo!).

Image credit
Last year, we wound up in the ER because he was having an asthma flare-up and couldn't breathe.  Today, he's in bed with some kind of stomach bug he seems to have picked up from work.

A lesser woman might wonder why her husband's body reacts so violently to her birthday.  But not me.  Nope.  I'm just going to sit over here with my hand sanitizer and eat some cake.

I hope this doesn't turn into a tradition.
