SM Johnson ~Thursday Morning Coffee~ Chaos in my Kitchen

So yes, I have been a lightweight blogger this week. Yikes! Again I must put it all into perspective that sometimes life gets in the way, and that's that. The more you rail against it, the more crazy you'll get. So it's much better to just submit.

So I thought I would share some pictures of the craziness around here.

SM Johnson ~Bloody Monday~ True Blood?

So, in the interest of my life being crazy, I thought I'd pose the question...

Do you watch True Blood?

SM Johnson ~Thursday Morning Coffee~ Show me!

Good morning, darlings, and Happy Thursday!

We are about to endure total chaos as all the appliances shall be moved out of the kitchen to install ceramic tile. Oy. The fridge shall now live in the dining room. The back door shall be barred, and the front door utilized. The stove shall be consigned to the garage, which basically means EATING OUT EVERY NIGHT! (I have zero complaints about that - haha).

SM Johnson ~Bloody Monday~ Traditional vs Independent

All right, folks, I can't help myself. I commented on the subject of [mostly independently published] authors behaving badly, and now there are some feathers ruffled because a couple of successful traditionally published authors have spoken out against self-publishing.

Oh, the horror.

SM Johnson ~A Year of Sundays~ ch 14 pt 2

Chapter 14 – Sunday July 31st
Part 2


"Is this a private party, or can anyone come over to play?"

The tension melted away the moment we saw Alex in the doorway. She was holding a paper bag in the crook of one arm, and a bag of ice dangled in the fingers of her other hand.

SM Johnson ~Bloody Monday~ Cable Culture

Wow, I almost forgot to give Monday some love. I think because yesterday felt like Monday, with the hubby running off to work right away in the morning.

Today is my mom's 70th birthday - go mom! Hard to believe considering she doesn't look a day over 61.

Since I have read absolutely nothing good lately, I thought I'd talk about cable culture, and what we've been watching, and minimally, what I think of them.

SM Johnson ~A Year of Sundays~ ch 14 pt 1

Chapter 14 – Sunday July 31st
Part 1


Well, things were a little more normal, in the sense that we didn't have to trek to the hospital to bring Sundays to Melanie because was staying at Mom's house with Josie and Jeremy.

Josie was sick enough that she couldn’t hide it from Melanie, now that they were living in the same house.

SM Johnson ~Thursday Morning Coffee ~ Inspiration and change

Good Morning, darlings, and happy Thursday!

The bike trip with the husband was quite lovely. I am loving the comfort of the new bike, and Dave is quite enamored of the ability to listen to music on the bike.We dug out some CDs, had a little iTunes burning party, and ended up with quite an interesting playlist.

SM Johnson ~ Bloody Monday ~ Dreaming

Good morning, and welcome to Bloody Monday.

I am on vacation. Hopefully I'm not sitting on the back of a bike soaking wet while you're reading this. If the formatting is goofy, highlighted in white (which seems to be a problem I'm having), forgive me. I'll fix it when I get home, I promise. I am much too Virgo to ignore weird formatting.

I just don't have much to talk about in the way of fiction at the moment - been too busy packing Sprite for camp and myself for our little bike trip.

SM Johnson ~A Year of Sundays~ ch 13, pt 3

(I apologize for the shortness of this week's installment. So much to do, so little time!)

Chapter 13 – July 24th
Part 3


We attempted to confront Melanie, but she turned on us with a fire and fury that was completely out of character. White-hot anger that left her shaking, shouts that frightened her roommate out of bed and brought the nurses running. The panic in her eyes was real, the desperation that twisted her mouth and made her clench her fists completely genuine.

SM Johnson ~Thursday Morning Coffee ~ Bikes and General Busy-ness

Good morning, darlings, and happy, happy Thursday!

It's a two-happy day because I survived Sprite's birthday party, broke out the hammock, and am officially on vacation - yay! (here's a picture of Sprite's birthday bike - finally, a bike that fits her "style." Because 9 year old girls must have style. Ah, this child. She shall change the world.
