Hello! Thanks for your interest in my writing!

I created this combination blog and website to make my life easier so I can focus on adventuring, writing, and wellness.

What I'm Reading

I mentioned in a previous post that I'd decided to re-read Tony Hillerman's (and Anne's) Leaphorn and Chee mystery series set here in the southwest. I've made it through the first 14 of the 25 books and hope to finish around August. Then I think I'll start another series from the beginning.

Enjoying getting fully immersed in the setting. Even some of the smaller details. Like: The characters drink vats of coffee! Day and night! And Chee eats a lot of bologna sandwiches and mutton stew. And they drive a lot - no surprise given the landscape and how spread out everyone lives.

Makes me want a bologna sandwich and I haven't had one of those for decades.

And it's fun to see ho Hillerman developed as a mystery writer and the way he developed his characters.

YAY local libraries!

Flowers Make Us Happy

 It's that time of year when the flowers are so lovely and lush. Here are a few pics from my garden.
