Welcome to my blog, thank you for stopping by. If this is your first time to my blog, it's nice to meet you. If you've been here before, welcome back.

My writing journey has begun. The road will have some bumps and detours. I only hope that the first hill is not too high, and the journey is long.

     Now, how can you resist reading this book, once you have looked into Bailey's eyes.  Bailey is the family dog, and is just looking for a comfortable place to sleep.  Every night, Bailey travels from room to room.  He starts with Brother's room, here Brother tosses and turns.  He moves onto Sister's room, she is surrounded by her stuffed animals, and it goes on from there.  Finally, Bailey returns to Brother's room and settles back in.  The illustrations are wonderful, in this almost-wordless book. 

     This is a great bedtime story!

Honey-butter Biscuit Cookies


1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
5/8 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
5 cups all purpose flour.


     Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Cream butter, honey and add sugar; beat until light and fluffy.  Add eggs, vanilla, salt and baking powder and mix well; gradually add flour and mix until semi-soft dough forms.  Roll tablespoons of dough into balls and place them 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet.

     Bake for 10 minutes, or until bottoms are lightly golden brown.  Remove from oven and immediately remove from cookie sheets.

     Let cool and serve warm or cold.

Don't Forget The Milk!
