Support Young Comic Artists

August 25, 2016

If you know me, then you know that my daughter is a wonderful and talented artist. Recently, she released her first graphic novel on Amazon. It is the first issue of her fantasy comic entitled Overmorrow and is free for a limited time only. So I am asking all my lovely readers to please, go download her comic. Once the free promotion is over, the price raises to $2.99. The more downloads she receives, even during the free promotion, the higher her comic is ranked on Amazon, which can help her exposure to potential costumers in the future.

In the village of Huormonna Lore, a strict religion keeps the elves away from werewolves; but what happens when Nev’R, the girl who forgot her past, finds out someone close to her is a werewolf? Will she abandon her friend for orders from the village elder? Or will she try to hide and attempt to help her friend escape? Find out in the first issue of Overmorrow!

So please, do me a huge favor and go download/read her comic Overmorrow, you won’t be disappointed. And if you would like to leave an honest review, well that would be great also!

Where Has the Summer Gone

August 10, 2016

Is it just me or did this summer fly by? It seems like just yesterday, Raven was finishing up her last year as a freshman and college and now, in only a few short days, classes for her sophomore year of college will begin. The older I get, the more it feels like time is speeding up. Hours feel like minutes and minutes feel like seconds. I guess that’s just one of the many downsides of getting older.


I’ve only gone swimming once this summer and, come to think of it, I’ve only gone to the Farmers Market once. Though I hope that changes soon ’cause I love the water and need to support our local farmers more. But with us being down to only one vehicle at the moment (both mine and Raven’s cars are out of commission for the moment) it’s kinda difficult sharing 1 car between 3 people, especially when the husband works 10+ hours a day with an erratic schedule. But, God willing, we will have another vehicle soon.

What about y’all? How has your summer been? Do anything exciting?

My Life For The Next Few Days

July 16, 2016

I’m no stranger to sinus headaches and pressure. In fact, I get them regularly. But the ones I’ve been dealing with for the past week have been horrible. Usually, I can relieve the pressure and pain with some over-the-counter medicines, but not this one. So after being forced by my husband and daughter, I went to the doctor. And, lo-and-behold, I have a sinus infection and upper respiratory infection. The funny thing is, besides the extreme pressure, pain and fatigue (which is saying something because, due to my extreme iron deficiency, I live on a daily diet of prescription iron supplements and caffeine just to try to feel normal), I don’t feel sick. So I was surprise to be diagnosed with upper respiratory infection.

I left the doctor’s office with a steroid shot in the hip and 3 prescriptions (steroid pack, antibiotics and benzonatate for cough). I had plans to spend the day with some friends, a girls day/night out, and was actually looking forward to it, but with the pain, pressure and now possible contagiousness, I decided to cancel.


So here I am trying to get some work done and I cannot concentrate and just want to stretch out on the couch and fall asleep.
