Halloweensie Story: Cordelia the Chicken’s Halloween

Halloween’s a’comin and the tricks have already started around here. And by tricks I mean the sort where you sit at your desk for four agonizing hours trying to figure out how to improve the layout of your blog, I do not recommend this for anyone even half as technically challenged as yours truly, and…

THE FRIDAY FRENZY- Lola Dutch

Every once in a while I come across an illustration that I just fall in love with. This sweet little piece I found a couple of years ago on Etsy, and I don’t know if it’s the green (my favorite color) or the raindrops (I love rain), or the yellow umbrella, or the cutest little…

FRIDAY FRENZY – Chicken Wants A Nap

Sometimes you just need a nap. I’ve needed one of those for roughly the last seventeen years!   Oh, I’ve had something that resembles a nap, you’ll know it as the comfy-on-the-couch, tucked-in-just-so with a blanket…albeit one that smells oddly like dried baby barf, even though there hasn’t technically been a  baby in the house…

Who here remembers Poochie?                                                             How about those Lovable Shirt Tales?     Maybe you know a little something about a thing called Underoos, or perhaps…

FRIDAY FRENZY – I’ll Wait, Mr. panda

If there’s one thing being a children’s book author has taught me, it’s how to wait . . . And wait . . . And wait. . . . And wait some more.   But ya know what? Sometimes all that painful, excruciating, agonizing, and let’s be honest..diabolical waiting, turns out to be the most…

It’s About Time!

I finally did it. I finally figured out how to update my blog….sort of. It took a lot of patience… And cursing… And crying… And temper tantrum throwing… And wondering why in the heck I can’t understand techno talk! I mean, If I can raise four kids, move back and forth across the country for…

FRIDAY FRENZY – Hug Me

  So I started work on that mini flower garden that hopes to grow into a mini flower farm one day and now I’m hot, dirty, sweaty, bleeding, cursing, and just a fleck of a straw away from all out bawling…. . . Putting in a new garden will put a smile on your face…

FRIDAY FRENZY- My Garden

Ya’ll, I want a flower farm. I’m going to have a flower farm. Big or small, successful or not, I will have a flower farm. Do I know anything about growing flowers? Dirt. Water. Sun. Seed….. What else could I possibly need? You’re rolling your eyes and chuckling at my lack of knowledge aren’t you?…

GIRAFFE’S BLUE SWEATER

What would you do if  you lost your favorite sweater? Would you climb a tree to look for it? How about search an icy berg, or check the den of a Kingly Lion? Me? Oh, that’s easy….I’d bake a cake, duh! Perhaps the yummy smell would lure it back home! What’s all this talk about…
