Whoooooshhh – that’s me passing by in a blur . . .

Hi Y’all – just a quick stop in to say hello, happy Friday, and that the Rose & Thorn fall issue is now Live! Hope you will go by and take a look at the prose, poetry, and our artist.

We have company at the little log house, so I need to get back in there to be sociable.

What are your plans for the weekend? Do you have changing leaves and a nice chill in the air as we do?

Next week, on Wednesday, I’ll be leaving GMR, the cove, the dogs, the ghost dog, and the little log house, my mountains, for Oregon to see my son, daughter in law, and my little Norah Kathryn –so excited. Anyone have any trips coming up?

Later y’all . . .

Random Photos Random Links, Random Video

Well, the leaves are changing. Some are already knocked off by rain and by tomorrow we’ll have high winds that will knock off even more. It’s beautiful, but this won’t be one of the more vivid years due to this and that and the other. Still, what a lovely place to live in. The other photos are of a storm that was moving out one morning.
You know, before I came here to blogger, I had a blog through MSN. I stopped using it because it was a pain to work with. But, they’ve just changed everything to WordPress and I have to say I’m impressed with it. I don’t know if I’ll leave blogger and go back to the “old” site – I’ve hardly posted there in the time I’ve been here– but I am tempted. It was my old “Howling from my Mountain” blog and I’ve already upgraded it to WordPress. I’ll have to think on this a while!
We’re working on the fall issue of Rose & Thorn Journal. The summer issue will be sent to the new Archives Page, so we hope you’ll stop by and give a last look at this issue before the fall issue goes live. If you haven’t signed up for the newsletter, we hope you will. Tell us what you think. Also, our R&T blog has new posts every Wednesday -we hope you’ll stop there, too, and read, subscribe. R&T is on Facebook, and on Twitter.
I’m on Facebook and Twitter too. I don’t do the “like” “fan” thing- and in fact I don’t like to call reader’s “fans” – I think I’ve said this before, but instead people are friends, colleagues, readers, etc. Besides, I like to interact and use my facebook as a casual place to talk and connect and say hello.
My good friend “Reduce Footprints” always has a great post about making our earth a cleaner and more sustainable and environmentally friendly place. I was going to link her today anyway, and then I saw she had linked me *laugh* – Anyway – go by and visit her site!
And last, I think on my regular wednesday “random photos/links/videos” I’m going to google whatever comes first to my mind and then whatever link(s) comes up first, that’s what I’ll post here. Today I googled “Peanut Butter and Jelly” and the very first link was to this video: Peanut Butter and Jelly. Lawd.
Then I went to the second link that read: “How to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich” – and they proceeded to show a video on how to do that *laughing* – huhn.
That’s all for today folks. See you Friday!

Somewhere, over the mountains, there’s a Book Fair….

I’m looking forward to this. My only regret is that I didn’t know about this in time to become involved as an author! However, I am going to support the other authors and those who support them.
This teaches me, however, that I need to find out what book fairs are out there for me to see about being a part of, or writers’ conferences that perhaps I can be on a panel or whatevers – with in reason, of course; for, the best thing I can do now is to get the second book all ready for print for winter 2010! I am looking forward to the Louisiana Book Festival, where I will be involved in some capacity – yay!
I’ll be seeing Carol from The Writer’s Porch there! And fellow author/friend Susan Reinhardt – who we only meet face to face at these kinds of things and that’s a shame, and Glenda will be there, and etcetera.
So, ta ta for now, and I will see you all later. Authors! Books! People who love books! And beautiful mountain surroundings.
