My New Blog

I started another blog today.  I guess I just like to compartmentalize my life. :)  I've got my family blog (here), my writing blog, my CFS blog, and now I have a blog that will be my scripture study journal.

You're welcome to drop by and join the discussion anytime!

Oh, and you may want to give it a week or two before seeing if there's anything interesting to discuss. ;)

Kyara's Scribbles

Hey, y'all!  I just wanted to let you know that Kyara is joining me in our Fiction Friday fun.  You can read her stories at every Friday.  She did a really fun piece this week -- I think you'd like it!

Fiction Friday is usually a really short piece of fiction based on a prompt that we're given.  It's a quick, fun read, and I love to see how different writers take the prompt in different directions.

A Happy Mother's Day

 I looked forward to Mother's Day this year.  I admit to feeling like I deserved it.  I mean, being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done or could imagine doing.  It's tough!  I thought my kids should show me a little appreciation just for hanging in there and not running for the hills.  (Trust me, the thought has crossed my mind.)

Well, let's just say the little darlings didn't disappoint.  My Mother's Day was purely delightful.  It started the night before when my kids cleaned the house. =)  I woke up to Monkey Bread for breakfast.  When I walked out of my room, a clean loft greeted me.  I did not dodge or trip over one single item!  Wonderful.  The children were kind and funny and sweet.  There was no fighting or even bickering.  They pampered me perfectly.  They reminded me once again why I decided to have children in the first place.

Never Forget

Eh, Not Much

Nothing out of the ordinary interrupted the normal hum of the Howells's schedule this week. Gabe and Gavin had Scouts, Johnette and Anneli worked on self-defense at Mutual, Romney had a behind the wheel driving lesson. Rom worked and I rested. We got a new printer that is pretty sweet.

So, instead of blogging about nothing, here is my review of The Persian Pickle Club by Sandra Dallas for our book club: The Persian Pickle Club.

And here is a short short story I wrote for Fiction Friday. They give you a prompt, you write for five minutes, then post the results (unedited, gasp!) to your blog: Fun Friday -- The Beast.

The prompt was “Shhh… did you hear that?”
