Answering the Call


Apparently, the Powers That Be don’t want me to miss a post this week.

It’s been stressful adjusting to the new job and schedule, and I’ve been so tired that all my story ideas simply dried up (hence, the photo – duh).

But then I received a notification from WordPress congratulating me on my three-year anniversary.

WP Achievement

Happy Anniversary with! You registered on 3 years ago. Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging.

So I now had something with which to start a post!

But what to say?  And when would I find time to say it?

And – then I received a Facebook reminder of something I wrote three years ago right after I published my About page:


August 24, 2013

Blog almost there. Just waiting for final input from my personal editor and personal artist. It so nice to have talented people in the family! Maybe I should also get my violinist/guitarist/singer to create a theme tune for me …

I love you girls!


Now I knew I had to write something!  No matter how long a day I had, and no matter how tired I might be.

And the icing on the cake?  In today’s mail, I received my copy of Linda Bethea‘s book, Everything Smells Just Like Poke Salad Linda has asked me to read and review, and I can’t even express how honored I am that another blogger has asked for my opinion about anything!



Also in today’s mail were my new Puppy Cody and Japanese Garden coffee mugs and my son-in-law’s new Teddy Rosalie baseball cap from Café Press (see sidebar, hint hint).

Looking forward to a weekend of fun reading – and fresh coffee in my new mugs!  I’ll let you know what I think of Linda’s book soon – I expect it’s going to be awesome like everything she writes on her blog (check that out, here!).

Ain’t blogging great?


I love to hear from my readers. You may comment on this post, comment on my Facebook or Twitter pages, or email me at

    Wow! Three years is a good long time in the blogging world. Incidentally, I have my copy of Linda’s book now too. It’s next on my list after I finish the one I’m reading by another blogging buddy. Goodness, there are so many talented people out there. 🙂

    • oh, lordy. You commented on this post last August, and I just now found that comment! I so apologize for my tardiness in responding. By now you’ve hopefully finished Linda’s book and enjoyed it as much as I did. I wish I had her talent!
