It was a good day to wear pink and high heels

Today was a really good day. I visited a lot of folks on my beat and did an interview in a boat making plant wearing high heels. The town that this plant is in has a population of 800 people. And these boats they make are sent all over the world and United States. It was soooo cool to see them being made.

The rest of the day has been spent learning about shad fishing and turkey hunting. I love how no day is the same for a reporter. Variety is the spice of life.

I had the best pizza for lunch from a convenience store. It was nice. Today, ED took a hike for awhile. It was really nice. So nice I was invited to dinner and am 90 percent sure I will go.

Hopefully, my mom got Tuesday's paper and has seen the ad for her birthday and her name at the top of the paper. My son is getting better. It takes a lot to keep JJ down but he's loves having control of the remote when he is sick.

All in all, a good day filled with being productive and some really good pizza and cake. Two of my co-workers had birthdays today so there are plenty of cupcakes and ice cream cake left for the taking. I do believe I shall take. It's a Dairy Queen chocolate ice cream cake.

Daily Dose

1. Being able to see how a boat is made from start to finish.

2. Soaking in the sun on a beautiful day.

3. In a few days, I will see my son and my mom.


  1. Mmm, I love ice cream cake! It sounds like you're having a great day, with fulfilling work and fulfilling food :)

Spending time with my son

Memorial Day is always special for me as a reporter and a person. It is a chance to recognize who gave their life so I and others can have the freedom we have. 
Normally, I work and get to take Memorial Day holiday on another day. This year, I got a double bonus. 

I got to spend the long weekend with my son. Things some how worked that my son’s aunt met me halfway and JJ was able to spend three days in Pickle Land with me. He had a chance to see me working and spend quality time together.

JJ is now 11. He is squarely in the pre-teen world. His voice is changing along with other things. My baby is growing up and it scares me. He got to see my new teeth and loved them. He said it was nice to see me so happy. 
We had a chance to talk and just spend some time together. And in two weeks, he returns for a two week involving my week long vacation and a bunch of day camps. It has been a good few days.
The other part is my Memorial Day weekend is this weekend. I'm going to the Lake to hang with…

My new smile

I have great news. Last Monday (April 10), I got my new teeth. 

They have definitely been a game changer. It is weird being able to smile at people. There have been some adjustments with talking and eating. I am so thankfully and blessed that I was able to afford to this. 

1. I got my new teeth!!!!
2. So thankful to my dentist Dr. Wynne and Faison Dental.
3. I can smile after not smiling for almost 20 years!

My home library is complete!!!!!

I write a book column for Duplin Times in Kenansville, N.C. called the Book Nerd. This is my May column, which is about me finally completing my home library.

“When all else fails give up and go to the library.”
-Stephen King

I have always loved this quote, because I have done as he advises hundreds of times.
After having a very bad day, I would head to my nearest library for some calming support.
But now, all I have to do is go home, and go into my own personal library.

Ever since I was a young girl, I have dreamed of having my own library. I learned to read at an early age and always had a book with me. Growing up, I always had a small shelf with books on it in my room. In college, I started to collect books. As I got older and moved to various places, there were always bookshelves.
When I moved into my current home on May 21, 2016, there were three-bedrooms with a pantry and two living rooms. Yes, two living rooms.
I decided before moving that the original living room with its mantle wo…
