Well, here we are again, boy time flies when you’re having fun! Grab your tea, iced or hot, and let’s talk! Spring has finally arrived, and along with it, a supermoon! My kind of an arrival, for sure. 🙂
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: I think I am still stuffed from the corned beef dinner on St. Patrick’s Day. It was very yummy, and I’m still trying to figure out why I only make it once a year. You would think if it’s that good, we’d have it more often. Maybe I look at it as a treat. How about you? Did you celebrate? I know some of you already told me you don’t. I say, start a new tradition!!
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: my latest book, “Short & not always Sweet” is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com until March 27th. Yes, I know, shameful self promotion. I also want to thank all who have reblogged and tweeted and shared and who offer support. Wait, that’s all of you!! I am so blessed. ❤
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: I have an update on Mom. We saw the orthopedist on Tuesday. She has a compression fracture of T12, same place she had it last time. Physical therapy was prescribed, and we return to the doc in four weeks. Prayers are always welcome, for a speedy recovery.
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: how frustrated I am with the WordPress reader. No matter how many times I refresh it, there is a huge gap between posts. Our blogger friend, Fandango, has been writing about this for awhile now. Seems the happiness engineers aren’t too concerned about making us happy at all. So, if you haven’t seen me on your blog lately, it’s because I can’t see you in the one place I should ALWAYS see you! It feels a bit like Facebook these days. But that’s another story.
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: I can’t believe it’s one week until NaPoWrMo! Have you signed up? It’s always a lot of fun, and the site offers daily prompts if you’re stuck for an idea. You can even use the badge on your posts! I hope you’ll join me!
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: Alyssa and I spent a beautiful morning/afternoon with the ladies of Maranatha Church of the Nazarene. The brunch was “Lessons on Lent” and Pastor Jan has a way with words. You can’t help but feel lighter and uplifted when she speaks. The cake was made by Carlo’s Bakery, aka the Cake Boss. Isn’t it beautiful? I cannot wait until the Christmas luncheon. It’s always a fabulous time.
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: it’s so nice to see many of you making the jump from Facebook to MeWe. There are lovely groups you can join, and while it is still fairly new, they are making improvements every day. Do come join us! mewe.com/i/dorindaduclos
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: it’s been a rough couple of days for the hubby. This is a man who never gets sick, and since January has had acute bronchitis twice. He can’t sleep, can’t breathe and there’s nothing I can do for him. Talk about feeling helpless! He’s under a doctor’s care so I’m hoping this one doesn’t linger like the last. That one was 4 weeks! 😦
As for this week coming up:
If we were sipping tea, basking in the sun and talking I would tell you: I’m hoping this week settles down a bit and I can get some serious writing in, but, those of you who know me well, know my family will always come first.
If we were sipping tea, basking in the sun and talking I would tell you: Time to get my day in gear. I swear we’ve been taking in all the neighbors laundry! Have a blessed week ahead, my friends!
