You might be a lazy blogger if

1/ you post photos each day of the week.
2/ you just got back from vacation and your laundry basket is eye-balling you.
3/ you can't tear yourself away from the Olympics.
4/ for each day you don't blog, you delve deeper into your work-in-progress.

Color me all of the above!

I'm posting vacation photos all week.

My kids are on this ride. Honest.

Saturday Snapshot: Sky Drama

Tuesday night sunset over Galveston, Texas.
There is much to admire about the Lone Star state. Dramatic skies are high on my list of features to love.

Wordless Wednesday: Double Rainbow

Be thou the rainbow in the storms of life. The evening beam that smiles the clouds away, and tints tomorrow with prophetic ray. - Lord Byron

Wordless Wednesday: Cake Decorating

When you are nine and can't find a cake decoration that suits your tastes, you ask your mom to get a simple cake and use your own characters to design it.

No word yet on why Minnie is turned around, but my money is on keeping watch over Mittens the cat. Also, Goofy looks suspicious.

Monday Morning Inspiration: Inner Thoughts

Can you relate to this sentiment? I can. I think this speaks one thousand truths, and not just for writers. 

Hope you have a wonderful and INSPIRING Monday. It's raining here and I'm collecting the remnants of my daughter's dragon and Disney-themed birthday party that are still strewn around the house. A candy wrapper here. A piece of streamer there. I almost want to leave the decorations up a little longer and let her new nine-ness sink in. I feel like I just brought her home in a Snoopy blanket, blinked and POOF she's nine and a boy classmate has given her a necklace with her name on it that she's refused to take off. 

Me: You still have your necklace on. Don't you think you should take it off now that it's bedtime?
Her: I'm going to keep it on in case I get amnesia. Then I'll know my name. 
Life inside her head must be VERY interesting.
