Busy navigating life for the moment. I will write again when I have more to share.
Something a little different today. My mom and I recently stopped in to a local quilting shop, Pressing Matters, and found that the shop was featured in Better Homes and Gardens Quilt Sampler magazine. Since this is right down the street from my house and I know the owner, I wanted to pick up the magazine, give a little more information and give a little support to the owner, Kelly Kindt.

If you’re looking to try a new diet book this spring, this may be the one. I knew some of the tips in Speed Up Your Metabolism, but had forgotten or stopped using them. But some of Smith’s tips were new to me. Reading the book inspired me to drop a few pounds this spring. I especially liked the list of foods that will speed metabolism. I like green tea and it would be oh, so easy to drink three cups a day.
Starting a new job last week I had to give up my “life of leisure” and start getting up early every day again. I could use some more energy and this book will definitely help me to get it. If I lose a few pounds in the process, so much better.
Enjoy! And let me know if this book helps you.
The Professor and the Bird by Roberta Franklin is one of the longer books I have read in a while, but it was a fast read none the less. It’s an entertaining story of a young woman motor biking through Turkey when her bike breaks down and she happens upon an archaeological dig. While her motorcycle is being fixed by some of the dig participants, she learns a little bit about ancient history from Professor Nicos. She is attractive and pursued by most of the young men in the dig. The amateur in the group, she somehow finds a valuable artifact and is celebrated for it. However this also makes her a target for criminals who wish to obtain the treasure for themselves. The story is convincingly written and there is plenty of romance. Romance fans will love this book.
Contrary to the title of my video series, I am going back to work! But it’s only going to be around 1 day a week after training. The rest of the time I will continue to press on toward my bestseller dream.
Here’s my latest video, where I talk about some of the other things I’m doing for pay these days.
