I’m sharing recipes and tips on being frugal while polishing up my photography and creative writing skills. There’s an occasional spiritual discussion, a book review here and there, and probably more pictures of my dogs than are strictly necessary. It’s part chat with a girlfriend over a glass of sweet tea, part conversation overheard in the grocery store checkout line, and part Thanksgiving dinner with the crazy branch of the family.
I’m a life-long Southerner who can’t live without sweet tea and comfort food. I read constantly and am always on the lookout for a new author. I have a lot of great decorating and craft ideas that I don’t have the patience to follow through on. Given the choice, I’ll pick a nap over a workout any day of the week. I believe all dogs, no matter how large, should be spoiled shamelessly and allowed to sleep in the bed. I believe children should be hugged and told “I love you so much” as often as possible, no matter how old they get. Family members who are eccentric should be enjoyed for their entertainment value, but family members who are mean should not be invited to visit.
I’ve been blogging since June 2009. It’s cheaper than therapy. I worked full time for twenty-five years as a cardiology nurse until multiple herniated discs, four neurosurgeries, and chronic pain made that impossible. Now I write and battle Chronic Pain and Depression. #invisibleillnesses
I love Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest with all my heart and try to limit my time on Facebook as I’m a recovering Farmville addict. I have a cookery ebook for sale at Smashwords. Or if you prefer it’s also available at Amazon or Barnes and Noble.
