Hump Day!

Tuesday is here but I’m still thinking about the weekend.  Have you ever had to hunt down zebra or elephant cards with phrases on them?  Well, that’s what I did while I was in The Art Shoppe on Sunday.  I started to look at the variety of cards from different artists and some of themContinue reading “Summary Content”

Social Media Tips

The week has started again and I’m thinking about pronto pups, funnel cakes, and Matha’s Cookies.  Yes!  The Minnesota State Fair begins and I already have my ticket.  I will be wandering around safely but with my mouth watering like everyone else who missed the fair last year.  Last year was modified to tickets toContinue reading “Social Media Tips”

Doggy Headlines

Today’s writing prompt is something that a lot of writer’s add into their resource box.  Many writer’s cut out stories from newspapers or magazines and save them in a box to use later.  In fact, many thriller writer’s use this as part of their research for new stories.  We all know that headlines turn intoContinue reading “Doggy Headlines”

Dogs and Coffee

Someone I know had to go to the chiropractor last week because their lab size dog took off, and they did a face plant in the back yard.  At least, they weren’t rollerblading down the sidewalk or downtown during the middle of the day for everyone to see them.  I know the videos of dogsContinue reading “Dogs and Coffee”

Monday Quiet Time

Our lives always get so busy with running errands, packing for the cabin, and planning outdoor barbecues that we forget to plan quiet time.  This is more than just napping on the sofa.  Creating a quiet space to relax or spend time with someone you love is important. At this point in my live, IContinue reading “Monday Quiet Time”

Writing Up A Storm

Temperatures are back up into the 90s as we move into the last month of the summer in Minnesota.  When the wind blows it’s like sucking up hot cotton into your mouth.  You heave it back out and do a little gasp for relief.  Stops for a cool drink, ice cream, and anything cold becomeContinue reading “Writing Up A Storm”

Writing Prompt: The Green Dinosaur

I just purchased a book of another children’s author and somehow she’s mastered the art of rhyming.  Her main character is a dinosaur.  How many of you have tripped over stuffed animals or Legos when you wake up and stumble to the coffee machine?  Today, we are going to trip over a green dinosaur.  ThisContinue reading “Writing Prompt: The Green Dinosaur”

End of Month Update

We are back to city life at the beginning of a new week and we are at the last week of the month.  I’m thinking about our Minnesota State Fair this year and because we didn’t have it last year, I’m willing to brave the crowds to attend again in August. It’s hard to believeContinue reading “End of Month Update”

Summer Writing Day #2

Gray stood on the end of the dock, swaddled in her grandmother’s quilt. Her eyes closed under her wild morning hair and her lips spread into a smile. Through her eyelids she saw the orange glow of the sun rising on the other side of the lake. Midst was rising off the calm waters. SheContinue reading “Summer Writing Day #2”
