Welcome to my blog, Not Just Horsing Around. Although I started this years ago, I had never published my posts. I have however, been published in a Chicken Soup for the Soul book, a nationally known “horse” magazine, and have decades of writing for nonprofits: press releases and newsletters. I’ve written scripts for elementary school plays, and copy for pamphlets and advertising. As with many writers, I also have the ubiquitous folders full of unpublished stories and novels.
Now, it’s time: back to the blog. I went through several variations of a name, trying to be cute, catchy and clever since I would love to monetize the blog. I want to be a freewheeling Jack of all Trades type of writer.
Blog Name Ideas: Every Little Bit, Piece of My Heart, Through the Windows, If Not Now, If Not Now-When, Good~Better~Best, Just Think About It; and a few I can’t remember. I wanted to let readers know my blog is going to be about EVERYTHING: Family, life, writing, reading, riding, horses, dogs, books, travel, gardens, antiques, food, photos, and so much more. Did I mention life?
I PROCRASTINATED longer and longer, but now, I am ready. Just do it, I realized. If not now, when? Why wait for the good, better, best blog title, and let’s let people look through the windows at every little piece of my heart? Don’t just think about it.
So, again, welcome to this peek through the window of my heart, head and home. I look forward to hearing from you.
And remember, as you read and comment, in a world where you can be anything, be KIND.
Mom’s Lasagna I learned to make my mom’s baked lasagna recipe decades ago, and have been making it ever since. Of course, as with most of my recipes, I made some changes. More cheese? Of course. Italian sausage? Yes, please. No boiling of those noodles? You bet. Throughout the years, I have made this lasagna… Read more
How are you all doing? Are you wearing masks, and washing your hands, practicing the 6 feet social distance rule and avoiding large gatherings? Are you a believer in science and health news or are you a politically motivated Covid-19 denier and possible spreader of the virus? I am wearing the masks. I am mostly… Read more
SAY THEIR NAMES I did not go. I wanted to go. I wanted to participate in the protest marches after the murder of George Floyd by a police officer in Minneapolis. There were plenty of opportunities that I did not take. In my defense, since 2016 I have protested and marched several times: The Women’s… Read more
