Context Is King | Tales to Tide You Over. Posted by my writer-friend @MarFisk Check out her blog!


Dances With Fat

My, my! What will I say about myself that I haven’t already shared?

Have I mentioned that I have watched Game of Thrones 1-3 seasons so many times I can’t count and I am nearly finished with my second read-through.

I collect dragons. And they demand to be in my novels.

If Dragon Naturally Speaking came with a cone of silence I would use it for everything!

Blogging is so much fun! I love meeting all the people and seeing what countries they are from! The world doesn’t seem so large anymore.

Retirement (for my husband, disability for me) makes me an adolescent again. My husband and I stay up all hours and sleep in til noon or later.

I hate my mouse-brown hair. I like the gray. I hate shoulder length hair. So… growing and going back to blonde!

My favorite thing to do is laugh!
