#fridayreads Book Excerpt – Evelyn Evolving

Posted by mcm0704 on April 28, 2017 |

It is only fitting that, on this day in particular, I continue sharing excerpts from the book I’m writing about my mother. This is her birthday. She died three years ago at age 95, and I still miss her. I am not sure when I will never miss her, or even if that is possible. […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on April 17, 2017 |

Spring mornings in East Texas are just made for taking walks, planting flowers, and then snapping pictures of said flowers. All too soon it will be blistering hot, so I am taking full advantage of the lovely weather. Here’s a close up of the flowers that shows the colors a bit better. I guess if I want really […]

Happy Easter – Happy Spring

Posted by mcm0704 on April 16, 2017 |

I want to wish everyone who celebrates Easter a happy and blessed Holiday. No matter what religion one espouses, spring is always a time of great renewal of our earth as flowers blossom, trees burst forth with new leaves, and there seems to be an air of great anticipation and eagerness about us. So I hope […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on September 12, 2016 |

First I want to share this picture I took the other day. I have a lovely bed of Mexican Petunias,  and they are in full bloom now. This shot was taken with my phone camera, which isn’t the best, and I could not get the colors to show true. The flowers are a deeper purple. This […]

Happy May Day

Posted by mcm0704 on May 4, 2016 |

Another whole week has raced by, and Slim Randles is back as today’s Wednesday’s guest. Before I turn you over to him, however, I have some lamenting to do. Don’t you just love that word? It has such a rich meaning. But I digress. My tale of woes includes an increase in pain from the Ramsey […]

Free Short Story

Posted by mcm0704 on April 24, 2016 |

Before I tell you about the free story, I want to share some pictures of flowers that I have taken over the past few weeks. Some are easily recognized. Who doesn’t know a pansy when they see one? Really? There are people who have never seen one? Oh, right, I guess I didn’t think about […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on September 25, 2015 |

This will be short today as I have to limit my computer time for a few days, so lets start with something to make you smile. This is a picture of a moon flower from my back flowerbed.  The plant came to Texas with me when I moved here from Omaha, NE, and I was […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on May 2, 2014 |

In writing this blog post today I experimented with using Dragon Naturally Speaking. I have arthritis in my hands so sometimes that makes typing a challenge, and I thought I would see how this dictating program works. I think once I get more used to using my voice instead of my fingers, the process will […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on June 21, 2013 |

The only good thing about when the summer heat hits Texas like a blast furnace is that flowers like the Mexican Petunia start to bloom. I’m trying very hard to make it my favorite flower as it blooms from late June through late October. Unlike pansies, which are my favorites, but have a much shorter […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends – Funnies and Flowers

Posted by mcm0704 on October 19, 2012 |

Before I get into the main part of this post, I want to ask if you have ever had trouble posting a comment here? On Wednesday, my guest, Mary Deal, could not leave a comment, and I know that was very frustrating as she wanted to thank me for hosting, as well as interact with […]
