Happy New Year!

This weekend we’re taking the leap from 2016 to 2017

silhouette man jumps to make the word Happy New Year 2017 with sunrise. (New Year 2017 is coming concept.)

I like this image as it’s not about the new year happening to us, but us taking the leap into the new year, ready to live and experience each new day, week and month with renewed vigor and joy! Let’s not be bogged down by the disappointments and heartbreaks of the past, but seek out fresh reasons to smile and laugh, go after our goals with fearlessness, discover new magic in the world around us and most importantly remember to cherish all those that we love!

This is my wish for each of you as we let go of one year to take the leap into the next together.

Happy New Year My Friends!

Best of Wednesday Worthy

If you are interested in a sexy fun novella, Good, Bad & Sexy is up for preorder on iTunes for 99¢ Click here to link to it.

For Wednesday Worthy, I’ve selected a few of my favorite hunks from my files for your enjoyment!

This one always reminds me of Sloane :-)

A little sweat and a happy trail :-)

Muscled male torso with strong abs

I like the candid feel to this shot. And he’s not bad to look at :-)


Okay I’m stopping now, LOL! What do you think–are any of my favorites worthy?

Holiday Roundup

And…we’re back! Christmas was a wild ride of joyous, exhausting chaos with the people I love most in the world. Today I feel a little like I got run over by a reindeer, LOL! I doubt I’ll get to the gym as I originally planned.

Can I just say that I did NOT ask Santa for these extra pounds? I never gain weight during the holidays, but this year, I’m sure I did. Time to get a little more health conscious :-) But in my defense…look at this beautiful cake that was a gift from my daughter-in-law’s sister:



Isn’t it gorgeous? It’s a rolled cake, and I really wish I’d I remembered to take a picture of the inside but trust me it was a work of art. Everyone loved it. So see? How can I be blamed for gaining a little weight?

I had so many wonderful moments over the holiday weekend–we had Biker Witch (my sister) and her Biker Hubby over for Christmas Eve and we made a turkey dinner with a side of wine :-) It was a blast. We had a fun Christmas morning breakfast with two of our sons, Special K and her nieces. And in the afternoon we had a tamale dinner with Wizard’s family.

Today I’m back to work!  After all the socializing, my introvert side is longing for quiet writing time. Plus deadlines are looming and kind of (totally!) terrifying me.

One last thing, one of the gifts from CPA Boy and Speical K was the Amazon Echo named Alexa. Wizard now spends his days asking Alexa a million questions. It’s cute…until I’m trying to concentrate and I hear:

“Alexa, who is the greatest fighter of all time?”

“Alexa, how many calories in a slice of pizza?”

“Alexa, what is the temperature in Big Bear California?”

“Alexa, who won the NASCAR championship?”

And on it goes…LOLOL!! I may have to put a lock on Alexa to get a little peace to work :-)

How was your holiday weekend?

Weekend Roundup

It was another busy weekend. Saturday I baked and wrapped and I’m nearly finished. I just have one  more gift to pick up, but man I was tired! Last night, we had a small family party and didn’t get home until really late for us–I’m writing this post just before midnight so it’s a pretty quick post. But it was fun and worth missing a little sleep.

Friday Five

Happy Friday! Another week vanished! All right, time for our Friday Five!

  1. Wizard is trying to convince me I want a Barbie Dreamhouse for Christmas. I’m not kidding, he’s in the other room watching TV, describing this house to me and exclaiming, “If you saw it, you’d want it!” Really??? I never played with Barbies when I was a kid. My dream gift then was an Easy Bake Oven. So what did the heck did he get me for Christmas that he’s tormenting me like this?
  2. I don’t hate the beginning of my book anymore! I haven’t gotten as much done on it as I want to, but at least I’m not banging my head on the desk in frustration so that’s a win.
  3. Wait…Tarak and Christina aren’t the happy couple portrayed on my favorite show FLIP OR FLOP??? I just found out they’ve been separated for 6 months and are heading for divorce. How is this happening? I thought everything I saw on TV was true!! I’m devastated. Okay I’m exaggerating, but dang, I really liked that show and wanted to believe they had a real and sincere love. The romance writer in me is not happy with this mean reality-slap.
  4. Sunday we’re going to Middle Son and Girlfriends for snacks, desserts and a gift exchange with just our family since Middle Son and Girlfriend will be out of town on Christmas Day. On Saturday I’m going to bake Raspberry Bow Tie Cookies and Sugar Cookie Lemon Tarts to take–both are new to me recipes, so I’ll let you guys know if they turn out decent. I really only need ONE kind of cookie, but I wanted to try both recipes :-) And should I admit that I also made Mocha cookies and froze them to take too? But I have to have a backup plan in case the other two recipes don’t come out, right?
  5. This is Corky in his happy place. Corky is CPA Boy and Special K’s pup and he loves to swing, can you tell? Corky doesn’t like to be picked up at all–unless Special K is going to put him in the swing. How cute is he?corky-loves-to-swing

Your turn to share you Friday Five! I hope you guys have a great weekend!
