It may not look like much now. Yet, in the next few weeks, this will become a place to explore some really cool stuff. Amazing, intelligent words that will leave you craving for more. You will beg, you will plead, but you’ll have to wait because I also need to finish other things in my life.

A list of things that need to be done before the next blog post:

  • Laundry. Trust me, we’re wrinkled and smelly. It must be done.
  • Decorating for Halloween. Apparently this is more important than decorating for any other holiday. The pagan gods are winning the war to create the best window displays and creepiest landscape designs.
  • Change my first novel from one genre to another. Thanks Romance Writers of America, I needed a challenge and you gave me one.
  • Write and edit the next 100 pages of my 2nd WIP. No problem, I write fast and hate exercising so I’ll have more time.
  • Walk the dog. When I’m in a hurry, I just take him out for a drive. He likes the change of scenery. Win-win.
  • Plant an obscene number of bulbs. They darn well better arrive in the spring or I’m calling in the groundhogs to clear the defects out.
  • Hanging with the family as we rush from activity to activity in pursuit of… I have no idea. I never rushed from activity to activity as a kid. I turned out fine. Just ask my therapist.

Hopefully, you have a more enjoyable week to look forward to.

Where I’d rather be…sailing in Hyannis.

  1. Your post, Welcome | Veronica Forand, is really well written and insightful. Glad I found your website, warm regards from Walter!

  2. Veronica, I love your theme picture–restful and inviting. I have a to-do list like that, edges tattered from my ignoring it, because it is an evil self-renewing perpetual listI

    As for the constant activities for kids, I think modern society is terrified of what our kids would do if they had five minutes to themselves. Blaise Pascal said, “All of man’s misfortune comes from one thing, that he does not know how to sit quietly in a room.”

    I look forward to seeing how this blog blossoms.

  3. I love your list of things to do. We’ve all got one of those lists. I make mine up so that I have something to cross out and I feel like I’ve made some progress. It’s interesting that you mentioned that we didn’t seem to rush from one activity to another when we were kids. That’s the way I remember it too. Ah for the simpler times.
