Happy Birthday Newsy Catch Up!

Hello, Blogville friends! Today is Gumbo Writer's FOURTH birthday, so I thought I'd check in and see how you're all doing. [If you need a little coloring therapy, feel free to print out the image above and get busy.] :) 

A few confessions ~~~ It's been so long since I posted, I got locked out of and had to obtain a new password. The nerve, hunh? LOL And to add insult to injury, there were 76 pieces of spam (much of it foreign), that needed deleting. Ugg. So glad I've got comments older than two days old set on moderation mode! 


As per usual, I've got about a million creative projects going on simultaneously: editing a few book manuscripts, keeping up with the functions and duties of Rose & Thorn Journal, enjoying Facebook and several groups I've started there, and {insert excited voice} I'm showing some artwork and photography at several local galleries! I'm engaging in a serious romance with photography of late, have gotten some poetry and anthology acceptances, am still hosting a monthly poetry workshop through our Arts Council, and yada yada yada. So, you can see all the creative goodies that are vying for my time, and some of the reasons I've not been as active as I should here. 

    On the home front, my youngest has moved onto LSU's beautiful campus, my oldest has graduated and is now teaching special needs students, and my middle son has returned to college. Yes, we've been a busy bunch. Oh, and thankfully, we weathered Hurricane Isaac well, unlike many of our neighbors along the Gulf Coast. 

Those are the high points in my What I've Been Doing journal. Sooooooooooo, what are YOU up to? Please share! 

Will be back tomorrow with a new Tasty Tuesday recipe or two. 

Huggage and all good things to YOU!
