The print version should be available for purchase within the next 3 weeks.

Fall Leaves because we don’t get to do this in South Florida

 What is New with Us?

Diary of a Rogue House CatI wanted to share some fun news! I finally published a book! It’s little and a bit silly, but I think it’s cute. (My 7 year old likes it for what that is worth.) This project is certainly a learning experience! It is available on Kindle US and Kindle Europe now and I am working on the print version at the moment. The print version should be available for purchase within the next 3 weeks.

Diary of a Rogue House Cat

Have you ever had a pet that just seemed to cause havoc at every turn? Have you ever wondered what on earth your pet could be thinking? Baby Girl the Rogue House Cat explains all her crazy and funny actions in her new diary to help explain why cats do some of the things they do. I hope you enjoy her antics as much as I do.

Big News:  It’s Publishing Week at my daughters school so I joined in the fun and finally published my first book!  Have you ever had an animal that you were sure was actively trying to be nice, but just ended up causing havoc? Read about my cat Baby Girl and why she did all the crazy things she did.  My daughter liked hearing the stories about this crazy cat, so I put them down in a little book.

The Week Ahead: Summer Fun in South Florida Never Ends

Coconut Cove Water Park in Boca RatonI cannot believe that we are half way through the summer!  We finally bought our first home, a tiny condo, but hey its ours.  I have been spending the summer painting and fixing it up myself.  I had no idea it was going to take so much time! Even so, we have found time to head out to some of our favorite places!  I will admit, the water parks are our favorites!  If you like water parks and splash pads, then here is our list of Water Play Areas!
If you missed them before here is the list of great deals that are available this summer.  Some of the passes for South Florida Museums and such are amazing, not to mention free bowling, movies and library programs!
Teach Me 1st Grade Mastery Levels.I have been trying to keep my kiddo on target by encouraging some educational Apps like the Teach Me Apps, and Gus on the Go. I will admit to you that I have been stymied by Mine Craft!  I can’t get her to do anything and have had to take it away from her more than once this summer.  It’s like its addictive or something!

The Week Ahead; Earth Day Events

Happy Earth Day!

I had to share this amazing photo taken by my childhood friend Tari Stage-Harvey near her home in Alaska. What a fantastic Earth Day photo! She has a blog called A Waste of Time where she has been sharing her insights on her life as a pastor, mom and a wife.  Her writing is exactly like her, witty, clever, entertaining, sarcastic, honest and borderline obnoxious.

I also thought I would share the Science Live Earth Day Facts & History with you this week! There are several events going on around town so no one should be bored this weekend!

We have had a hectic crazy week, so I apologize for the Week Ahead coming out a day late, but as I always say better late than never!
