TODAY IS ALL ABOUT ME

Today is all about me. It is Sunday. I have been to church and am ready to snuggle down to an after noon of  mindless of Lifetime Movie watching and knitting. That is, after I prepare a little Sunday dinner for my guys and wash the mysterious mountain of dirty dishes in my sink. but that won't take  long and I will get to the purpose of a Sunday afternoon.
Yep, today is all about me.
But yesterday was all about reconnecting with old pals and meeting new, awesome writing friends. The Kingwood Public Library hosted a wonderful after morning of sharing and writing comradeship. Meant to be a community event for the good folks of Kingwood, I think this really turned into a celebration of those WV authors who attended the event. We did get to interact with the public, but that was secondary to the prosperous learning experience these authors provided for one another. The treats were delicious and the tea comforting. The professional knowledge shared was priceless. 
I am so grateful to belong to such a giving, sharing family of writers.
I learned from S.J. not to get too close to the photography subject while on the job, especially if that subject is a bear...or an alligator.
My new friend Danielle is my new IT gal. She is a walking wealth of trade technology information; as well as an area zombie hermit crab expert.
Trinny, Theodore, and Renee reinforced in me a love for poetry and an appreciation of finely tuned words of verse. Theodore wowed us with his innovative use of  decorative tins. Renee delighted us with her sugar plumbs and Trinny got a giggle or two from us  compliments of Mag and Mae.
Laura brought copies of  The Silver Tattoo and I had the chance to again tell her that I had reviewed her story "somewhere". I WILL acquire a copy of Patricia's novel next week. I will also find Jennifer's Kindle published books since I am smitten with her ghost story affection.
Diana share some personal words from her first book.. And Georgeann didn't read to us, but she is responsible for making this event possible.
My head spins with the gargantuan amount of knowledge that occupied that cozy library yesterday.
I want to take a little bit of everybody there and combine all those  talents. Talk about s show stopper!

The more I think about my new friends, the more humbled I become. And the more I realize how insignificant Lifetime movies and my beginner's knitting project are. 
Today might be all about me, but yesterday is going to direct my tomorrow. Thank you, Kingwood Library for bringing us together and for ample "food" for thought.


And now, I had better get busy on those dinner preparations, so I can spend the rest of my day perfecting my writing.

BORED? ARE YOU A COUCH POTATO?

                                                                 Bored? Are you a couch potato? If you are already prone to this malady, the following information may be dangerous in encouraging this behavior. This writer is not responsible for damages done. As a result of today's blog topic,  my personal couch potato activities are responsible for the lack of yesterday's post. In an attempt to justify my actions, I blame Netflix (in the name of research).  The best way to prove a fact is to test it, right? Yesterday I definitely put Netflix to the test by watching hours of Safe, a one-season Harlon Coben creation that whetted my love for crime/mystery/action-based entertainment. Harlon Coben is an American author whose work I have enjoyed immensely over the years,  discovering Safe as Coben's break out into film became that much sweeter when The Five caught my attention another series of his own. I will finish The Five today (unless some saves me) so that I can

CBD and MS

We warriors are a resilient breed. After speaking extensively with a CBD enthusiast over the weekend, i finally bit the bullet and bought the "good" stuff...all in the name of research. Things have changed a bit since my first CBD experience, including the flavor. This particular product comes in natural (an earthy flavor), peppermint (self-explanatory), and cinnamon (Yum!).Because particular brand (Hempworx) has ONLY two ingredients : CDB and hemp seed oil.   I decided to document my experience here, so if any of you are interested we can discuss our personal journeys. As you all know, MS is an expensive condition that requires careful thought to additional treatments and related expenditures, most of which are not recognized by insurance companies and/or medical professionals; so, every experience is a financial gamble. I started my new "treatment" on Saturday, October 26, 2019. The instructions direct you to take two-three drops under the tongue twice a

Taopatch = scam?

So, as I sit fuming about not receiving my TaoPatch order within the promised time, this article popped up on my computer screen. I fear I may have been swindled. Oh, well, won't be the first time.                                                        MS patient shines a light on the harms of misleading media messages https://www.healthnewsreview.org/2018/05/ms-patient-ed-tobias/ https://www.amazon.com/Have-Whats-Your-Super-Power/dp/1882658442/ref=sr_1_fkmrnull_1?keywords=i+have+ms.+what%27s+your+superpower&qid=1556457191&s=gateway&sr=8-1-fkmrnull
