I Blame the Cake!


For being late…

It was my son’s birthday…my son who is all about healthy living, strict diet and working out.

Except on his birthday.

THREE bags of candy went into this cake, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips and M&Ms.  I baked and frosted the chocolate cake,  Son did the decorating.

I actually ATE some of this cake.   And completely forgot to blog! Instead I went to bed and had nightmares of being attacked by millions of pieces of candy trailing cake crumbs.  Terrifying :-)

My other two sons have NORMAL cakes on their birthday.

So here’s my question: If we feed this cake to the flying monkeys, do you think they’d still be able to fly?

The Library Witch

Today I’m participating in the Romance Author’s Tea at the Huntington Beach Library. Also appearing will be Susan Squires and DeAnna Cameron. As luck would have it, I happen to know both these women and I’m very pleased to be doing this Tea with them!

I actually wrote a speech, but chances are good that I’ll completely forget it and just wing it. I just hope I don’t bore the guests!

Okay so that’s what I’m doing today, what are you guys up to?

And for fun: When I was editing BLIND MAGIC my funniest typo/mistake (that I found) was this:

He stared at the dong.

It was supposed to read, “He stared at the dog.” DOG!!! So glad I caught that before I sent it to my editor!

Caption This!

I’ve got a bit of a headache (just sinuses, I’m not sick) and running on empty here. I can’t even talk about books I’m reading because I’m reading for a contest…and I got stuck with an uninspiring category.

So…let’s play Caption This Picture…

It’s all just for fun!

Monday Quickie…


I’m done!

I did it!

I finished the revisions and sent them off! We’ll see what my editor thinks. They’ll probably be a few more things I’ll need to do, but for now…


I even had time yesterday to go lunch with Biker Witch (my sister) and hit the mall while Wizard went off to a Superbowl Party. (It was a boys party, and this witch had better things to do!)

So how was your weekend? Did you watch Superbowl? Go to any Superbowl Parties? Win any money?

Monday Roundup

WHAT? It’s February?  Umm, how did that happen?

As you all know from my constant whining, (and my slacking on comments) I’ve been under the gun on revising Phoenix’s book. And guess what? I’m making progress! Yay! I finished the bulk of the revision, and now just need to edit, smooth and polish.

Hmm, maybe hard work does pay off!

I’m projecting getting this to my editor next week. Then I’ll dive into Key’s book. I don’t have much time to write that either. But thats’ okay, I’m excited about his book!

I didn’t get to read this weekend, bummer. But I did get a break Saturday morning when my oldest son and his girl friend came over very very early.

And they brought Bailey! Woo Hoo!! I stopped playing with Bailey just long enough to make pancakes, then played with him some more.  I didn’t take pictures this time thought. Then I threw everyone out to work.

How was your weekend?

P.S. hop on over to MurderSheWrites where Kate Carlisle is guest blogging! Leave a comment and you’ll be entered into the contest to win a copy of Kate’s latest book IF BOOKS COULD KILL.

Fun with iPod

ipodYesterday, I woke up and dragged my sorry backside to the gym. Wizard had gone to the gym the night before and I felt guilty.

I hate feeling guilty. Even worse, I made chocolate chip cookies this week so I feel guilty and fat.

At least this time, I remembered to take my iPod.

Only my iPod doesn’t look like this picture :-)  Bummer.

So while I was on the treadmill, listening to my music I started wondering if the people next to me could actually HEAR the music.  I have some EMBARRASSING songs on my iPod.

Some examples:



ALWAYS ON MY MIND (Elvis Presley)


I swear, I have good songs too! Tons of them!

Now there’s the one song I’ve seriously flirted with downloading, but it’s Just Too Embarrassing.



Okay your turn–what’s your embarrassing songs?
