A Bouquet of Newly Sharpened Pencils

Fauf has some favorite things right now...

Bruschetta: I've been craving lots of bruschetta on bread--especially when it's made from our fresh produce growing in our back yard!

Three Musketeers: Just finished the book--best ever! And now I'm on this kick of renting the movies. Starting with a 1940s version with Gene Kelley, Angela Lansbury and Lana Turner!

Special Ed kids: I have one special ed class I'm teaching. They say the funniest things ("My favorite movies are romances) and they do the sweetest things (tie each others' shoes)--keep in mind they're 5th-6th graders!

Sherlock Academy website: It's been fun creating a site and sharing it with others. Even more fun is watching God connect me with the right people to promote my book--can't wait to see where He takes it!

Purple: this season deep purple is drawing my eye. (I go through color trends that attract me--last year was mustard yellow and the year before grassy green). As I shop, I'm noticing purple is the in-color and I'm digging it!

Holidays: I'm getting excited thinking and planning ahead for the great holidays coming--Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas! And let's not forget about Autumn, just around the corner! Hooray!

I Love to Laugh

I love laughing. It's great for the soul and supposedly burns calories. I've been laughing alot lately. Here are some things that make me laugh...

My hubby and his friends..


My sis and her ridiculousness...


Our double-dating partners...

..."She's having a hard time in life, what with illness and losing a loved one."

My book and its personality...

..."Is there anyone here named Herbie Z. Frecklebottom?"

Project Runway's most outlandish character yet: Headda Lettuce...

..."Do you and I...right here...right now...can let it go..."
