#1 NYT bestselling author Linda Lael Miller


Latest Discovery

Quite by accident–if there is such a thing–I discovered “Karrie on Canvas” on Youtube–and I love the loose, free way she paints, the bold colors, and the whimsical subjects.  I’ve got a piece underway following one of her demonstrations, and I’ll post it at some point.  (The famous sunflower is still in limbo, if you’re wondering, which you probably aren’t.)  Anyway, I love to share my special finds with you, so I posted a link to one of Karrie’s early videos.  Enjoy!

I’m writing today–and it’s another perfect day for it, too.  It’s going to rain.  :)

I’m listening to a promising new book–new to me, anyway–called “You Are Not Your Brain”.  I’ve developed a fascination with brain science–go figure–and I’m always on the lookout for a better way to do things.  I’ve also begun Andrea Kane’s new book, “The Girl Who Disappeared Twice”.  It’s off to a great start–go, Andrea!

So many books, so little time.  The new Johanna Lindsey is on top of my to-be-read stack–I love her dashing heroes and spirited heroines.

Expecting company today–niece Angie and beau, Taylor.  They’ll be vegging at the lake house, along with their beagle, Gus.  Have I ever told you how wonderful my nieces and nephews are?  :)  Angie is not only beautiful, funny and smart–she’s a terrifically talented first-grade teacher as well.  I’m so very proud of her.

That’s the news for today, pretty much.

Have the best day ever.

    I love watching other people paint. Probably because I simply have no talent for it. (Although I can paint circles around everyone when it comes to painting rooms!) My grown son loved to watch Bob Ross paint on television from the time he was a wee child. He would just lie in front of the tv in fascination. I think part of it might have been Mr. Ross's oh-so-soothing voice…..Oh, if you are growing weary of the rain, send a little our way. We're in a scorching drought here in Texas – triple digit heat every day and it's drier than a bale of hay!

“Keep your ear to the ground” referred to the practice of plainsmen listening to the ground to hear hoof beats. It became the westerner’s warning to stay alert.
