I've been playing catchup since I started #NaNoWiMo (National Novel Writing Month)

Morozov Bay has been an absolute mystery as I've written. 

This is one of those novels that is writing itself. The characters demand what they want...

I've noticed that I'm talking about Keto to a lot of people. When I said no bread on the table please, on the cruise, I got a look then questions, not just from the waiter but the guest sitting next to my sister and me or my husband and me.

Life’s been good. I’m still doing dirty Keto. I even managed to lose 3 pounds on my last cruise. I passed my 100th day on this new lifestyle and still find it amazing that I’m not having craving issues. My entire life was eating to my cravings before this.

I’ve started...

I caught a video of Nik the Booksmiths on Suminagashi – The Ancient Art of Japanese Marbling. I had everything laying around but in very cheap versions so I did it real quick before I forgot I wanted to try it. 

I set up a white plastic table on the back porch and...

One of my favorite Crafters, Nik the Booksmith did a dirty paint pour. I had promised myself that I wouldn't do any different crafts. I would stick to what I had. Well that didn't last long. Took me two weeks to get everything together. 

This is one of the coolest pain...

Well life is moving forward. I’ve been proofreading on the book I wrote in November and moved to an unfinished book to give the November one time to calm down in my head.

We had a very strange occurrence today, we got snow here in East Texas.

I thought today would be th...

I finished two proofreads. One of them was done in front of the computer listening to it being read by a computer voice. It always shocks me how helpful that dull reading is in finding mistakes. 

Well my sister challenged me to lay back and just read the book. So I used...
