Dear Neglected Book Blog, How long has it been? 7 months? Yes, I apologize. I've been busy all winter trying to clear out space for everything I want to do and trying to figure out how to organize it all, time-wise and space-wise. I've not been successful, so the new plan is to do what… Continue reading The Writing Room: Clearing Out the Weeds
And what do YOU do for Mother's Day? We keep our day pretty low-key. We make a special breakfast together. The kids make cards. And I usually get a pretty gift. This year, though, there's a very special mother that we'll be honoring. A stray cat that adopted us gifted us with four little kittens.… Continue reading The Garden: Mother’s Day

My shop has grown from a box to a closet, to a storage unit, to an even bigger storage unit, to a booth at a small town Peddler's Mall (Booth 1017, Peddler's Mall, Georgetown, KY, Just off I-75! Come on down!!!). My… Continue reading Moving Sale!!!
Oh, good! You're still here! I'm still here! And even though it's been six months since I've written, I don't feel the guilt I've felt with other blogs that I've abandoned. You've survived my absence. I've survived my absence. Every thing is fine. Sigh. A happy sort of sigh. So, what shall we talk about?… Continue reading The Atrium: Welcome to January
Our last cat experience was traumatic. Months on, my 5 year old would still talk about the other cat and ask me why I thought the cat would attack him on the couch all the time. The last cat, I'd explain, was feral. We'd been mis-led about this cat and I was certain that most… Continue reading The Kids Room: Another New Cat
