So...September Already? IWSG


How is it possible for time to flow so swiftly? I can't believe it's already September, though, I'm very happy with the weather we've had. Not like some areas of our world where the heat is so extreme and lives are threatened every day.

The question for this month I answered last month, so will say instead that I'm so very proud to be a part of this group. I really appreciate all of the writers/artists here on IWSG, and love how diverse we all are. 

I've started reading again. I don't know why, but during Covid, I couldn't read. I stopped reading and wondered if it was just part of growing older. But, I'm not THAT old, and I'm back reading again, so perhaps it was a coping mechanism? I did so many other things, including crocheting and learning to knit. I practically lived in my garden...

I know lately I'm not the best at visiting or answering, and I'm sorry. I am slowly getting my butt back on the ball (literally! On an exercise ball) to spend more time here. To spend more time developing the stories I have lined up, waiting impatiently to be put on "paper." Husband is going in for second knee surgery so will have much time staying at home this fall. 

Thank you all for being a part of this community, for your support over the years, and for being who you are, wherever you are.

Please visit our wonderful co-hosts this month:

Sonia Dogra, J Lenni Dorner, Pat Garcia, Sarah - The Faux Fountain Pen, and  Meka James!

Ready to go see Barbie, pink as we can be! Saw Oppenheimer as well, both worth seeing IMO...


  1. I think a lot of people struggled with reading and writing during those dark years.

  2. Hi Lisa - great photo of the two of you - Barbie has been inspirational to many (one day I'll get to see it). I've decided to do a lot of reading - a very eclectic range of books ... but like you I'm so appreciative of the community of IWSGers ... cheers and all the best - Hilary

  3. Hope everything goes well with the knee surgery.

  4. I can relate to all those steps in your journey . . . and we're still standing! Write On!

  5. Glad you're having nice weather. We had a couple of really hot days here, but I think it's starting to mellow out which I'm happy about. The return to being able to read it nice. We all had to find ways to cope those days and so many people took the time to learn new skills like you did. I wasn't one of those LOL but I have since learned to make bread so that's been nice.

  6. The IWSG has such a wonderful sense of community, which is hard to find in online groups.
    Enjoy your reading!
    Happy IWSG Anniversary Day, Lisa!

  7. I've gotten better at writing in the past year, but I still haven't got back into the habit of writing.
