Following the Rules

I have lots of thoughts this week, but unfortunately, few of them are connected. 


We went to the Stock Show and Rodeo on Friday. It was dollar day, so we took the girls out of school and called it a field trip.  Cherry is a rule follower.  It is her nature to be the perfect child.  Skipping school to pet a pig doesn’t sound like something she should do, but it is.  We had a great time. I will post Cherry and Coco’s big smiles on the photo page.  Some of the best educational experiences happen when we take time out from institutionalized learning.


I joined my RWA (Romance Writer’s of America) chapter’s BIAW challenge.  BIAW stands for Book in a Week.  What it means is that a group of us meet on line daily and write our tails off. I set my goal at 50 pages for this week.  It starts today.  I have to get writing.


Bacon got the call that he starts his new job on February 18.  He has three weeks guaranteed on this temporary position.  Pray that the powers that be keep adding to it.


We filed our income tax. We aren’t getting much back, but we don’t have to pay.  I am humming Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus as I type.


On one trip to the park this week, I saw a raccoon, a rabbit, a bunch of cardinals, and a deer. So far, my day job doesn’t pay much, but who else can claim such wealth?

  1. Hi Liz,

    It’s just so much fun to read a blog in which I actually know all the characters! I keep checking in with you, however silently. I am so rooting for you and your writing and am delighted to be along for the ride.

    Good luck to Bacon and his job. You’re right: Cherry *should* pet a pig!

    Keep it up. I’m enjoying the blog!

    Best, Liz


  2. Hey Liz!
    Thanks so much for reading. It’s an encouragement to know that someone is out there enjoying it. Honestly, knowing that makes it easier to write.
