OMG, It’s Monday with Jade Lee/ Kathy Lyons

Whose feet are those anyway? This is an important week for me. Tomorrow is release day for The Makeover Mistake by Kathy Lyons. So what’s at the forefront of my brain? Do I look fat in these jeans? I mean, I lost weight, but then I gained some back but not all of it. So now I don’t know if I’m supposed to be hiding my muffin top or glorying that its smaller. OMG, what are the reviews? Will anyone buy it? I’ve had over 40 releases, why is this one still as hard as the first? *peering out from writing cave* Is something going on out in the real world? No? Yes? Nevermind. *slinks back inside* What a strange cover. I’m always looking at the guy’s red underwear, but then I looked at my name only to see the …

OMG It’s St Patricks’s Day w/Jade Lee

So if you’re on my Facebook or Twitter feed, you’ve already seen this picture. But I don’t care. I ordered some promotional items and I think they’re fabulous. I case you’re looking at this on a tiny screen, they’re a mousepad and a mug. I even got the LARGE sized mug if people drink coffee like I do. That’s been one of the advantages of going decaf. I can now drink as much as I want. And apparently, that’s a lot! Guess how I got the idea of this slogan. If you can’t read it, the caption is MY WEEKEND PLANS Then the woman is saying: Look deeply into my eyes. Now take off all your clothes So, I got that idea by That’s what my weekend plans ALWAYS are. Have you seen my husband? The cover was so pretty, …

OMG, it’s Monday w/Jade Lee #9

OMG, it’s Monday w/Jade Lee #9 and we are talking about my new art piece! So while on vacation I saw a piece of art that I adored. I resonated deeply with it and ended up buying it. It was A dolphin with a silly, happy expression on its face A painting of Minnie giving Mickey a less than polite gesture. Manchest. Duh! Sculpted into a statue that I can fondle at will. A picture of a faceless person wandering through the forest. Answer: 4. Yup, I bought The Search by MacKenzie Thorpe. He’s an artist I’ve admired for a while, but this piece really spoke to me. It reminds me that unless I’m looking backwards, I have no idea what kind of joy, color, or disaster I’ve left in my wake. Every once in a while, I ought to look …

OMG it’s Monday with Jade Lee week #7

The PLAN vs. What really happened Some of you may know that this is my year to stay away from conferences. I average a conference a month, though in heavy years, it’s been way more. I’m an extrovert, and I love getting out there and talking to people, but this year I had a radical plan. To stay home and write. Write a lot! Write a ton and maybe clean house too. Here’s what really happened. Exactly what I planned. I’ve written and my house now looks like a photo shoot for Midwestern Home on a Middling Income. My house is a disaster. Now that I’m home, I’ve got craft projects, empty Sunchip bags, and dirty socks everywhere. Oh, and I wrote some stuff too, but no more than usual. Write! Write! Write! I’ve written the equivalent of War and …

OMG It’s Monday! Week #6

What I saw in Costa Rica There was amazing scenery and great fun in Costa Rica, and I saw some great creatures I’d never encountered before. Guess which one I did NOT see. Howler monkeys Beautiful moth my son-in-law got drunk (see previous post) Grasshoppers larger than my hand Sea cucumber Costa Rica’s version of a raccoon Mosquitoes or whatever the hell was eating me alive Answer: 6. I got bitten by insects despite all the bug spray. And yes, I was supposed to put it on AFTER going swimming too but I forgot and paid for my stupidity. My legs are a spotted mess right now. But I never actually SAW the culprits consuming my blood. We’re guessing mosquitoes but it could be any number of different insects. Costa Rica has a ton of them! We did see all of …

OMG It’s Monday! Week #5

The Things my Son-in-Law Shot While on vacation, my new son-in-law used a nifty telephoto lens and a wine-soaked napkin to take a picture of something he thought was cool. Guess what? My daughter as she sun-bathed. The wine was to get her sleepy enough to close her eyes and recline. A raccoon. He tempted it with wine, then shot pictures as it approached. A howler monkey. Turns out howler monkeys love wine! A moth. He caught it under a glass, then slid in the wine-soaked napkin to get it drunk enough to stay still. After a while, it was still enough to be drunk or dead, then he lifted the glass and started taking pictures. Answer: 4. Yup. Though he’s getting his Ph. D. in chemistry, he thought long and hard about being an entomologist. So all things bug …

OMG It’s Monday! Week #4

WHAT HAPPENED WHEN I GOT HOME Happy New Year Everyone! I’ve just returned from a fabulous family reunion in Costa Rica! Guess what I discovered on my return home! That my husband (who had returned early) had cleaned the house and done all the grocery shopping. That all the mail-order Christmas presents had finally arrived. That it hadn’t miraculously gotten warmer in Central Illinois. That I was covered in insect bites and was pleased to come back to a frozen climate without those damned bugs! Answer: 2! Yes, I had mail-ordered a ton of Christmas presents, but too late. I’d managed to grab secondary presents before we left so Christmas was still celebrated in style. But now what do I do with a plush Anna doll for my niece? Or the hand crafted special yarn bowl for my sister? As …
