Missing the Book Tour Blues May 5, 2020 - I’m just gonna come out and say it. I miss book tour. I also miss having my hair professionally cut and colored and the glory that is a salon mani-pedi. Hey—I’m out here walking around looking like a hedgehog. Also? My nails look like I’ve been digging rutabagas.  Yes, I’m aware that this is a first world problem. The good news is that my family and I are healthy, and I hope all of you are too. We’ve been in lockdown going on eight weeks, and we’re going stir-crazy, but I get that we are incredibly privileged. We have a… ...
Desperation Baking April 14, 2020 - With the stress and anxiety surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, I’ve been doing a lot of what I call desperation baking lately. But this week I did a little celebration baking. It was my friend Susie’s birthday, and virus or no, I believe in celebrating birthdays.

Granddaughter Molly asks… ...
MKA’s 2020 Reading Challenge January 30, 2020 - I’m not super big on New Year’s resolutions. We’ve all been there. Eat less; exercise more. Spend less; save more. Yada yada yada. But when it comes to books and reading I can always get behind a fresh initiative and some goal-setting. If you’re like me, you tend to read a lot of the same kinds of books. I tend towards escapist fiction, whether contemporary or historical. I also love a well-plotted mystery, so long as there’s not too much nightmare-inducing gore. But we all know that there’s so much more out there for us to sink our teeth into.… ...

Flowers make even Mondays okay. Ish. The zinnias, sunflowers & salvia in our garden are still going strong. #mondayvibes #squirrelhollow #southernsummer #flowerpower ...

After 3 hours of writing I was desperate to do something else. Decided to tackle my closet, starting with shoes & purses. A huge trash bag of shoes is headed to the thrift store. Some purses were so gnarly I had to throw them away. While cleaning out the non-gnarly(ish) purses I scraped out at least $30 in change, a 20-Euro note, a dollar bill, a Planned Parenthood button, Stacy Abrams button, credit card case full of expired cards, lots of hand sanitizer, 9 pens, four chapsticks, and some gnarly face masks I tossed. Also a blade for a hacksaw. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever dug out of a purse? ...
