Halloween and the Colors of Fall

Posted by mcm0704 on October 31, 2018 |

Halloween was one of my husband’s favorite holidays, leading up to all the others through December. He loved to sit on the porch swing wrapped in a monks cloak and scare the kids as they came up for treats. I have such fond memories of those days. That said, I find it ever so appropriate […]

Monday Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on October 29, 2018 |

We aren’t seeing many pretty fall colors here in my small town, but I saw this tree in my next-door-neighbor’s yard. It’s the first really bold color I’ve seen. I’m hoping there will be more. I spent the day Saturday back in Winnsboro to visit with some friends, and we were completely disconnected from the […]

#FridayReads – The Final Quest by Gabriel Farago

Posted by mcm0704 on October 26, 2018 |

Those of you who are familiar with my blog know that I like to support my fellow authors, so today I’d like to introduce you to a writer from down under, Gabriel Farago. We met online, and I sampled his free story The Forgotten Painting which I very much enjoyed reading. That story introduces readers to Jack […]

Ready to Tee Up?

Posted by mcm0704 on October 24, 2018 |

Help me welcome Slim Randles to the blog today with a fun story about Doc and a squirrel and an interesting golf tournament. I’d enter just for the fun, but I think this tournament would challenge even pro golfers. Never having played golf, I’m not sure what golfers like as refreshements, but I suspect the […]

Monday Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on October 22, 2018 |

How was your weekend? Great, I hope. I had a fun time at a craft fair at Holly Brook Baptist Church on Saturday. Not such a fun time driving in the pouring rain on Friday to get there, but Saturday cleared up and people were ready to get out of their houses after days and […]

Nothing Like a Dance

Posted by mcm0704 on October 17, 2018 |

Slim Randles returns as today’s Wednesday’s Guest, and I never know if I like his humor best or the more thoughtful essays. If you read the entire post, there is a treat at the end.  Autumn is in the air everywhere now, and just a couple of weeks before Halloween it seems to be an […]

All About Dogs

Posted by mcm0704 on October 15, 2018 |

First I want to share this picture of a flower that just opened in a small bouquet I have in my kitchen. The bouquet is from periwinkles I have planted in the front of my house, and I’ve enjoyed bringing some of the color into the kitchen, especially when the buds open to such lovely […]

Hurricanes and Global Warming

Posted by mcm0704 on October 12, 2018 |

Starting off this Friday blog post with a picture of some white wildflowers I saw on my walk the other day. It has cooled off here in Texas, and the mornings are perfect for walking. I’m seeing a lot of these little flowers along the road and they dress the place up nicely.  While people […]

Message From Beto O’Rourke

Posted by mcm0704 on October 10, 2018 |

Yesterday, while I was preparing this post to schedule for Wednesday, it was raining here in my corner of the world, with occasional thunderstorms. Sammy, my big coward of a cat was scared all day, hiding most of the time, and only coming out when the bowling balls quit rolling across the sky. When all […]

Writing Through Adversity

Posted by mcm0704 on October 8, 2018 |

Before moving on, I thought I’d post this picture of a bloom from a Periwinkle plant. I have lots of the flowers outside across the front of my house, and they are so lush that sometimes I clip a few to bring inside. The blooms don’t last long, and I’ve never had a bud open […]
