11/11/2018

Good morning everyone. How are you on this blessed Sunday morning? It is five-thirty in the morning here in Dalton, Georgia and it is twenty-seven degrees outside. Brrr! We are in a freeze warning until ten o'clock this morning. Please, I hope everyone has their animals inside a warm place. All of the dogs just went outside to potty and are now snuggled back inside our bedroom on the bed with my husband sleeping comfortably.

I got everything moved out of the kitchen yesterday and all the walls and cabinets have been washed down and are now ready for painting which I will be doing after I finish this post. I have to get out the paint from the middle room and I will be painting the walls first and while they are drying I will be going to the grocery store and doing our food shopping for the house and for our Thanksgiving dinner.

I am doing the cooking this year as long as I don't get hurt in between now and then. It seems like every year that I have to cook, I either throw my back out or having a sprang somewhere on my body that makes it hard for me to move or function. One year, I sprung my tailbone and I was supposed to do the cooking. That was very painful and miserable for me because I couldn't sit or lay down without pain.

This year I have a new family to cook for which I am honored to share my Thanksgiving with. I have my list of dishes to make and have made my grocery list by that menu plus the household list for our regular food. I will probably be spending about an hour inside the store alone checking prices and using my coupons where I can.

This morning, I will be finishing this post, then painting the kitchen walls, then doing my morning coupons today, then going shopping. I will be going shopping alone since everyone hates being in the grocery store with me, and taking my time to make sure I get everything needed. I do hate being rushed because that seems to be when I forget stuff the most.

It will be considered my "me" time away from everyone and giving me time to concentrate on what I need to get. Once I get back and get all the cold stuff put away in the refrigerator and freezer, then I will go back to painting and doing the cabinets and then scrubbing the forty-year-old dirt off the floor and making the kitchen look new again.

After all this is done and the kitchen is back together, I plan on sitting down and writing another article for the paid site I write for. My article seems to get good readings on them which I am happy about. I see my erotica articles get a lot of reads and I am considering if I need to be writing an erotica book for everyone to enjoy?

Once my article is written and posted to the site, I will be working on my books in progress because I still have to meet those goals. There are some people who think that my writing is silly and that I should put it off and do it as a hobby, but it is serious to me and I hope to make it a supplemental income for my husband and I to live a little more comfortably than we do now struggling from check to check.

I only have four books published right now, but by the first of the year, I would like to have triple that amount to bring in the new year with. Right now, I am sitting on one book almost done with my personal final edit before sending it to the editor and three works in progress to finish writing. I am keeping positive about having these books done and published around the first of the month, but it depends on how quick my editor can get them done.

Well, it is time to get to work on painting before the newspapers get here and then it will be clipping my coupons and then heading out the door. So, I wish everyone a blessed day and to those celebrating a birthday today, "Happy Birthday" and may you have many blessed birthdays to come. Take care.

P.S- Remember that a percentage of my royalties go into my nonprofit that assists the homeless in becoming self-sufficient, so check out my books and get your copy or two. Thanks and God Bless

Brrrr! Good morning everyone. It is thirty degrees outside here in Dalton, Georgia and the wind is howling which makes it even colder outside. We let the dogs out to potty and immediately brought them back inside our bedroom where it stays warm. They are nestled in their blanket on top of the bed and all going back to sleep.

Today, I am sitting in the living room because it is freezing in my back room and working up here, plus I will be painting the small kitchen and cabinets. I will still be taking breaks to get some writing done and it will not take long to paint it will just be time-consuming to do the cabinets and then put everything back.

My writing goals have not changed, nor am I going to change them. I just have some writing to catch up on and will be doing some serious writing here shortly once the kitchen is done and I will be spending most of my time writing. I should have had at least seven books ready for the editor, but life has stepped in and took over for a minute, so now I have to play catch up.

It will be a busy day, but a fun day. I love painting and making things look better and cleaner, it is part of my OCD and sometimes it will even drive me crazy. I will hopefully have a lot to post about tomorrow, but I want to get off here to get my day started.

I hope everyone has a great day and a blessed one. I want to wish everyone a "Happy Birthday" to those who are celebrating one today. It is a beautiful day and time to have a birthday. Take care everyone.

Good morning everyone. It is me again. :) It is seven thirty in the morning and very rainy here. Today my husband has a doctor's appointment and will be going alone since he now has a driver's license which means I get to stay home and get things done. It frees up more time for my writing as well. While he is gone, I will get the house chores done and then be able to sit and write.

I still have several articles to write for this one website to catch up on it, then there is work that needs to be done for my nonprofit, then there is my actual book writing for which I have taken a couple of days off from to get my notes and other things done. Yesterday I spent a little bit organizing my desk drawers so that things are easier to find.

Sorry, my husband and I laid back down to rest for a bit, but now I am up and ready to get to work. It is nine thirty in the morning and still rainy and gloomy outside. I just got our room straightened up and this back room cleaned and smelling good. Now, I can get busy with the rest of today's stuff and hopefully have a full sheet of check off's.

My first order of business is to get the house chores done first so that the house is cleaned and then I can disappear back here to my room and get my work done. I look forward to working my list and getting things completed because it makes me feel accomplished.

Well, time is being spent and I need to get going since I have a full day worth of work to get done. I hope everyone has a very productive day and a blessed one. "Happy Birthday" to everyone who has one today and may you be blessed with many more. Take care.

Good morning everyone. It is now eleven sixteen in the morning, but I have been up since eight this morning. We had to go run an errand first thing this morning and now I am home taking care of some business things. I am trying to get my nonprofit back up and running and have things to do to set it all back up again. It has been slow with medical conditions stepping in and throwing things off, but I am motivated and ready to get it back in gear.

I have many things to do this morning and hopefully will be able to get it all done today. I published some articles last night on one website but I am taking this morning to revamp things to include my nonprofit work as well. I hope to kick off the new year with a bang. There is much that I need to do to set things back up plus get my writing done.

Now that my husband has his drivers license, it takes a lot off of me to do things so I can be home much more to work on things. I now have time that is freed up for writing and preparing my files and paperwork for my nonprofit. I am excited about it and I have faith that things will work out and that it will thrive.

A portion of my book royalties will go into the operation of my nonprofit, so I hope that a lot of you will support our efforts in fighting homelessness by buying one of my books. It will go to a good cause and our plans to help those afflicted help themselves in regaining their self-sufficiency.

Should you just want to make a donation, you can through Hope Station's website: http://hopestationusa.com/

Well, it's time to get to work because I have plenty of it to do. I want to wish everyone a blessed day and a "Happy Birthday" to everyone celebrating today. Take care.

Hello, everyone! Today has been an awesome day. My first half of the day has been the best part because my husband passed his road test today and is now a licensed driver once again. Now he can share the driving, lol. We went out and paid some bills afterward and then came home. I just got all my house chores done and now I can sit and get some of my stuff done again.

Now everyone is on my time, lol. I feel pretty good considering the sleepless night that I had. I could only sleep about an hour here and an hour there. I got up to use the bathroom at least eleven times last night, but no accidents, I guess because I was awake most of the night.

There are no appointments for tomorrow, only picking up medication and paying one more bill and that is it. I would then come home, do my house chores and then the rest of the day is mine to do what I please, which everyone knows that I will be writing, lol.

It has been sunny most of the morning, now it is gloomy and raining. This makes for good sleeping weather, but I have things to do that are important. Besides writing, I also have to make plans for the new year which will be here soon enough.

I have to plan out my writing, our budget, and for Hope Station USA which is a nonprofit that I founded back in two-thousand and nine. Here is the link to its website: http://hopestationusa.com/.
She is my baby because I feel just as passionate about helping the homeless as I do telling the world my stories.

Well, daylight is wasting and I promise to make my post longer tomorrow so I hope everyone has a safe and blessed day. "Happy Birthday" to everyone whose birthday is today and may you have many more. Take care.

Good morning everyone and how are we doing today? I feel better rested today since I am taking medication like I am supposed to be and getting enough sleep now. I still get up several times a night but I got to sleep in this morning which was a big help. It is sixty degrees here in Dalton, Georgia and rainy. The wind blew really hard all night but everything was okay this morning when I looked outside.

My husband and I are drinking our first cups of coffee and the dogs are asleep thank God, lol. They are usually pretty obnoxious first thing in the morning and wanting their attention. I get a break this morning, woohoo! Things are moving right along this morning, we have to take our roommate to go get his identification this morning.

I will be working on some articles when we return home. I wrote one last night and have some more to do to catch up on them. I also will be writing some more on my books today. I have taken a few days off of book writing to catch up on some other things but will resume book writing today to keep them moving forward.

I am looking towards having several books done by the end of the month and sending them to the editor for a final edit before publishing them. I am happy about getting back into book writing. I had a lapse in my mental health issues but I am back to feeling like myself today.

It is time to go to the driver services appointment for his identification, so I will end this post here and wish everyone a great day and a "Happy Birthday" to all those celebrating one today. Take care.

Good morning everyone. It is fifty-one degrees here in Dalton, Georgia this morning and it has been raining all night. Everyone is up this morning and my husband and I are taking a roommate to get his new identification card and social security card. He lost them in the move up here and his identification card is expired, so we are getting him caught up on everything.

Hello everyone, Sorry this is a two-part post because we had to leave for a bit before I could finish this post. We got back from taking our roommate to the social security off and the DMV was closed today, so we are taking him tomorrow morning to get his new identification card. It is no problem for us to help him. He has been through a lot with moving up here, thieves breaking into their storage unit and taking a lot of stuff, and then his wife died soon after.

I came home and got my household chores done right away so that I could work on the back room with cleaning the carpet and moving some things. It wasn't much, but it had to be done as well. Now it smells so good in here and right now my husband and the dogs are taking a nap while I sit here typing up this post.

It is not so cold today and I can sit back here and work on my writing. I got behind on some articles which I will be getting them done here in a minute. I can feel my body destressing as I sit here in the peace and quiet. My mind is a little clearer even though my body is hurting a little. My medication has made me a little loopy today but it is tolerable enough for me to write my books.

Well, allow me to end this post here and get to work, daylight is a wasting. I hope everyone has had an awesome Monday and to everyone celebrating a birthday today, "Happy Birthday" to you and may you have many more to come. Take care.
