Party time!

Almost a year to this day I submitted a story to a promising new journal. Little did I—or any of us—know the success this journal would have in such a short time. I proudly announce that one of mine has been included in The best of Vine Leaves Literary Journal 2012:

Have a look if you can!

Today, I took Julia to the CVS minute clinic for a strep throat test. Luckily she does not have the strep, however, it did take almost the whole day to find out! Oh well. Now I'm making chicken soup with mushrooms and homemade noodles, and bread with chocolate cake for dessert. I hope all is well with you and yours. Happy Sunday evening to you!


  1. You have had much success this year and that has to be joyful for you.

    I hope Julia is feeling better tomorrow. Really though, thank God for Minute Clinics on a Sunday. Kids always seem to get sick or hurt themselves after doctor's hours or on weekends.

    1. Yes! I didn't even know they were open on Sunday, but everyone else did, haha.

  2. Congratulations on being one of the Best... I knew that all along. I'm sure that the special chicken soup together with the chocolate cake, to say nothing of her Mother's love, will go long way in aiding Julia's speedy recovery.


My shameless 'I Love Kurt Vile' post, and my favorites for 2018

I love, love love Kurt Vile. He's a great songwriter, but perhaps what made me love him first was he looked like the lovechild of Janis ...
