I am starting to get a little itchy around my neckline where I got a good burn at the first Clemson home game of the 2015 football season. It was the only place I overlooked a triple application of SPF 55 sunscreen. Last weekend was full of football, family and, yes, fun. (Can’t help but… Read More A little Clemson love
You may have to scroll to see this view of tonight’s sunset. I survived the Arctic blast #1 a few weeks ago, 9 degrees when I left the house and 20 degrees at lunchtime. Therefore, I am sure I’ll survive what they are calling Arctic blast #2. The low tonight is 16 in our area;… Read More It’s that wet kind of cold!
I present to you, Quick Ricotta Spaghetti, and I can eat as much of it as I want, without guilt. How is this you say? Because of Weight Watcher’s new Simple Start plan.

Picked 10-01-11. Scheduled to be dipped in cornmeal and fried up 10-02-11.
We cleaned out, weeded and planted bulbs in Mom’s flower garden today. Later we soaked up the sun while laying in the grass. Taking in as much summer as we can. Noelle turned 1 year old this week. Happy Birthday little girl.
I attended the Scribbler’s Writer Retreat Weekend at Sea Island, Ga., this weekend, on scholarship from Brewton-Parker College. I’m very grateful to the sponsors of the event and to Brewton-Parker for sending me. I met many like-minded people – writers. It’s been a while since I was surrounded by so many creative and passionate people –… Read More Scribbler’s Writer’s Retreat weekend
W is for walk around the neighborhood. It was only sane to wait until about 7 p.m. tonight to walk (1.2 mi.). I think it hit 100 today. Check out my alley’s new gravel (much needed to fill in the potholes). Thanks, City of McRae! (Only X,Y & Z left–thank goodness!)
