My Black Roses Book Cover


Learning how to add pictures to the posts, so I’m practicing with this one.  I took this photo last year as I wanted to do my own cover for my Black Roses mystery novel.  And then I learned how to draw on it in one of my drawing software programs on the laptop.

That was tricky.  I’m so used to drawing by hand on a pad of paper.


It amazes me how my girls can go in and do these elaborate designs of pets and LPS characters.  Littlest Pet Shops.  They told me they zoom in and draw.

I will have to try it some more on some other photos at some point.


I’ve got to come back here to write more often.  I’m more active here than I used to be.  I’m also The Authentic Life Blog on Tumblr too and am active there too now.

But the main baby of mine is The Authentic Life Blog

I think it’s good to be active on lots of different sites so that we can promote the place we write at the most.

More pictures to come later.  I’ve got at least 50,000 pictures in my digital archives and I can’t stop being a shutterbug!

You Know Your Child is bored When….

and several other new posts



Did you accomplish all you set out to do today?

Did you accomplish all you set out to do today?  Was it all that you hoped it would be?


Usually we start out our day thinking one thing is going to happen and then the next thing we know is that it ends up changing on us or that we do things to change the course of our day.

I’ve done this so many times.  I think I am going to get the next chapter of my novel written today and then I end up finding something else to do and the other unexpected thing ends up getting accomplished instead of what I set out to do.

It shouldn’t really matter as long as something gets done.

I squeezed a walk in early this morning before the weather got hot.  I like walking when it is nice and cool.  And it feels great when you see that you have shed some pounds when you next hop on the scale.

And I thought I was going to do some knitting one night while the kids were gone and I ended up deleting and cleaning up my digital photos while watching Shark movies.  And I probably should have turned off the TV when I watched Super Shark.  The shark was able to walk all the way up the beach and munch people.  Now how stupid is that?  I watched it.  The channel didn’t get changed.


I guess I just wanted a mindless night of sharks killing people.

What Were the Highlights of Your Summer?


More to come, I’ve got a whole week of control with my laptop while my daughter is gone camping with her Dad and siblings.  She’s been using my laptop to play her online games.
