    If We Were Having Coffee, I would tell you… 4th of July Holiday was The Hottest

    Good grief! I have longed for summer to start for the past six months but all that heat at once was not on my agenda. We have no Air Conditioning in our home due to the cost of the added electricity on the bill. The fans did run all week long, and they didn’t seem to help much with the high humidity. After taking Monday and Tuesday off and having Wednesday as my holiday, I could not wait to get back to work and find relief from the humidity by hiding at the office and enjoying the perk of office air conditioning. I didn’t want to leave work because the…

    If We Were Having Coffee, I would tell you… it’s graduation!

    Today was the day – Graduation Day! A day that I never thought would come until two years ago when I started my academic journey at Franklin Pierce University in the Associates of Arts for Business program.     The weather was blah, but that didn’t matter, I dressed to meet the challenge of staying warm and dry while waiting for my turn to walk across that stage and receive my announcement of conferral. When I left home at 8 in the morning, the clouds had just started rolling in. The weather forecast was cold and light rain. Not the best combination for a graduation ceremony. Some used umbrellas while…

    Writing Progress – 4.9.18

This month I decided to pull out of the mothballs and commit to working on that one story every night with a minimum of 100 words. Tonight I was 26 words under 5oo which is more than I had expected to write during that hour. Finding time to write these days is hard. No, wait, that is an excuse.
