I have been spending a lot of time working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal lately and was looking for an excuse to get away for a while so on Friday when Terry told me she found a good deal on a yarn mill that a lady had for sale down in Boynton […]

The weather has been beautiful and I wish I was outside playing, but instead I have been spending a lot of time chained to my desk working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, as well as some other writing projects. But I’m making good progress. Since we haven’t been doing any traveling I […]

Thank you to everybody who purchased a copy of my new book, Big Lake Celebration, told their family and friends about it, and shared links on Facebook. It’s off to a very good start. Just six hours after it went live on Sunday evening it was ranked #5,088 on Amazon, and by yesterday afternoon it […]

I’m So Stuffed!

I’ll tell you right now, the turkey wasn’t the only thing to get stuffed at our house for Thanksgiving! We had a quiet day at home, just the two of us, which is just the way we like it. Miss Terry had bought a turkey breast and cooked it, along with all the goodies, and […]

It has gotten downright cold here on central Florida’s Atlantic coast. The temperature last night was down into the mid-40s, and it looks like this trend is going to continue for a few days yet. On the evening news yesterday the weatherman said temperatures were 20° below normal for this time of year. Could this […]

We won’t be moving into our new house for a few days yet because the previous owners had a delay in closing on their new home due to Hurricane Matthew. Rather than have them move everything into a storage unit, and then have to move it a second time, we told them we were no […]

For the last few days we’ve been sticking pretty close to home writing and weaving, so I have declared today a play day. We need those every once in a while. Terry finished weaving her latest project and took it off the loom last night. It’s a huck lace shawl, a new pattern for her […]

(Sung to the tune of Fly Me To The Moon) Anybody who knows us knows that Miss Terry is an avid weaver, and you have probably seen my pictures of the beautiful articles she has produced on her loom. Weaving is one of the earliest known art forms, dating back to Neolithic times, approximately 12,000 […]

In spite of all of our recent interruptions, we finally had a day to spend at home yesterday so we could get some writing and weaving done. And we got a lot accomplished! I cranked out about 4,600 words on my new book and by the end of the day I was a little over […]

Yesterday was an in and out morning. No, not the hamburger chain. My trip to the VA clinic here in Bradenton, Florida. I had an appointment at 8:45 for lab work, and they said to arrive 15 minutes early. We got there at the appointed time, I checked in, and a few minutes later they […]
