My Dream City

The end of the week is here and I’m looking forward to the weekend. It’s been one of those weeks. Listening to my audio books, I’m trying to keep my mind focused on the work I need to do right now but it’s hard to fight the urge to search for apartments in Paris. InContinue reading “My Dream City”

City Tour Through Books

The end of the week is coming and I need a break from my AI immersion. Like a child I’ve asked the AI all kinds of questions to test the limitations of the software but my love for personal experiences still drives my brain. I need books created by humans. I want to know theContinue reading “City Tour Through Books”

AI Exploration Continues

I’m still playing with CHATGPT as the week moves forward and I thought I would ask the AI to shares ideas on how to be more creative since we’re at the start of a new year. I’m sharing the results of what I received back and I’ll let you be the judge of whether orContinue reading “AI Exploration Continues”

AI Writing

This week I decided to play in the open source AI platforms to see what kinds of answers are generated and what it can really do. Many business people are using this kind of AI to write marketing headlines, newsletters, and marketing materials. My experience following other people using CHATGPT vary from people using thisContinue reading “AI Writing”

Researching Business Tools

After being under the weather for most of last week, I had to use the weekend to focus on my goals for this year. My husband and I organized, threw out some old clutter, and put up a calendar to keep track of our business this year. I binged on a variety of videos fromContinue reading “Researching Business Tools”

Friday the 13th

Friday the 13th should be filled with all kinds of stories that go against the rules of what is normal. Oddly, I’ve found this day to be lucky unlike the superstitions. Maybe it’s a casino or lottery ticket day. Then, I remember it’s a Christmas make-up day tomorrow for my brother, his wife, and myContinue reading “Friday the 13th”


Thursday is here and I’m taking today to recognize and celebrate that my husband and I reached our goal this past year for participating in craft and art shows around Minnesota. Recently, we sat down at our favorite cafe and planned for this year to reach an even higher goal for our handmades. Inside myContinue reading “Milestones”

Book Title Prompt

The middle of the week is the perfect time for a prompt to help get us over the hump. There’s no need to stare at a blank page trying to come up with a topic for your journal because we’re going to google today. All you need to do is type in “trending book titles”Continue reading “Book Title Prompt”

Typing Rhythm

I’m letting my fingers fly across the keyboard and doing my best not to edit as I go. Trying to get back into the zone when you feel like a book hero with all the interruptions does deserve a reward. There’s days when the words barely flow out and feel like a trickle. Then, there’sContinue reading “Typing Rhythm”

Shop Girl

The month of December was good for all artists in The Art Shoppe in Midtown Global Market. Being part of a creative group has really pushed my work and given my children’s books a home. In fact, I have to order more because they’re all gone. This past weekend I played shop girl, as weContinue reading “Shop Girl”

Driving Up North

Driving down the city streets of Minnesota feels like I’m in a miniature world, like the ones I create out of clay. Mountains of snow taller than large trucks are pushed into parking lot corners. The last snowfall make the snow banks taller than adults, and plows pushed piles onto lawns and sidewalks. The smallContinue reading “Driving Up North”

Snowed In

This isn’t Buffalo but we’re all wondering when the snow will stop falling. We’re used to rocking and rolling our cars back and forth out of parking spots the past few days have been a little too much, especially for those who have places to be. I wanted to crawl under my blankets and luckilyContinue reading “Snowed In”
