Tuesday Chores and Writing News

Hello everyone. I hope wherever you are that it's cooler than it is here. Our high was only about 90 degrees, but boy was it humid!

I still have a few things to plant out in my flower/herb bed and if I don't get it done by the end of next week, it will probably be too late. I guess I'd better stop hoping for a cool-down and get out there and do it!

Today I baked bread and also cut out some fabric squares to make napkins. I've needed to do this for a while, as we tend to use a lot of paper products~more than we need to. I would love to quit using paper towels, too, but I'm afraid that would only add to my laundry, which is hard to keep up with as it is. Have some of you done away with using paper towels?

I have some exciting news I want to share with all of you. I have a romance story being published in Woman's World magazine. It is supposed to be in the July 8th issue. I also had a mini-mystery in the May 10th issue. I had the wrong date for that story and didn't get to tell all of you about it. The story will be published under Mary L. Briggs.

Hope you're having a great week!


  1. How exciting Rosemary, was it hard to get in? I get that mag too so I'll have to look for your story, so happy for you! Still hot here too, hoping for a early fall to balance it out? LOL

  2. We've had some pretty humid days, here too, with temps around 90. Had a lot of rain too, lately.

    Congratulations on being published. I am so excited for you.

  3. Congrats on being published! How exciting : )

  4. Can't believe you bake bread in this heat!!!

    Congrats on the publishing!!!

  5. That's wonderful. I'm so happy for you. I'll try and get a copy of it. It has been very hot and humid here, too.

  6. Congratulations Mary! I'm so excited for you - and proud of you for working at your goal. I'll be looking for that magazine! blessings, marlene

  7. Congrats on your story being published! That is exciting news!

    I wish you cooler weather. I wish for some as well - today it is to be 98 with a heat index of 112. UGH!
