birthdays and anniversaries

To celebrate John's birthday each year, I usually get a cake pop from Starbucks.  This year, I was in Orlando visiting my sister and her family in February.  To commemorate his birthday, Sharon and I got a Mickey cake pop at Disney!  


I have also started the tradition of getting a wind chime to mark the anniversary of John's passing.  Since I spent the weekend at Disney this February, I wanted one Disney-related.  Since I couldn't find one that hit me just right, I ordered the chime in the picture below.  It is "Cinderella blue," and has a butterfly (which played an important role in the live-action Cinderella movie).  


....and of course, here is a picture of Cinderella and me!
John would have gotten a kick out of me meeting her.

Relay for Life

The school where I teach held its first Relay for Life to raise money for the American Cancer Society in May, 2016.
This is my luminary in memory of John and my friend Vickie.

Camouflage: The Day After Tomorrow

My latest short story is now available on Amazon/kindle.

Chaos. Everywhere. And now someone, or something, had discovered her hiding place. Could Cammie keep her cover much longer? With Grandfather missing, would her questions ever be answered? Will the turmoil in "Camouflage" be tomorrow's headlines?
