Get Walking


I love just about everything about writing, except the fact that I have to sit while I do it. Before writing became my career, I was pretty active, but a combination of getting older, moving, and sitting in front of a computer daydreaming up new ways to torture my characters has left me out of shape. Luckily, I have an…

Yummy Brussels Sprouts!


I love Brussels Sprouts, and as I've said earlier, I had no idea you could just grow them in your garden. I spent a decade in Santa Cruz, California, where farmers grow them on the cliffs beside the ocean up Highway One, and I'd always supposed it took that exactly climate to be able to grow them correctly. Happily, I…

I arrived back home just in time to scramble to get ready for my next book release - The Cowboy…

The Flower Garden


Last Saturday I looked at my flower garden and couldn't stand it anymore. So I spent an afternoon weathering bouts of searing sunshine and misty rain to dig out almost every plant within it and move them all around. When I inherited the garden last spring, it took some time just to clear out all the plants that didn't belong…

Chicken/Shed Update #2


A couple of days ago I posted about our new chicken coop/run attached to our small shed out back. Since he was working on the building already - jacking it up and installing the coop and run - my husband decided to go ahead and just turn the rest of the shed into a greenhouse/potting shed while he was at…

Wood For Sale


Need wood? We've got lots, as you can see. Actually, this is nothing. We've sold lots of truckloads since last fall - enough to pay for the cost of having so many trees taken down. Our neighbors still hate us for what we've done, and no amount of gardening or sprucing up the place will change their mind, probably. Eventually,…
