I may chat about my books, what I'm writing or reading, or just general thoughts. You may read posts about my cats or just my crazy life in general. Comments are welcome, if anyone wants to interact with me. Maybe we can share war stories, whether it's writing related or just about life in general.

Every year my sister and I call each other at midnight on our birthdays.  We’ve lived in different time zones since we’ve become adults and because or birthdays are a day apart it can be both our birthdays at the same time in two different places.  We also talk to wish each other well.  This is something we’ll probably continue to do because we have an unusual birthday situation most families don’t have.

My sister Scherri and I - Sept 2013

I think one year that I irritated her husband waking him from his sleep when I called at midnight her time.  This year (and probably every year) he say’s, “it’s your birthday” when she wonders who’s calling at such an hour, sometimes falling asleep herself.

Another tradition for this time of year is the gathering at Stonehenge for the summer solstice.  If you’d like to read a brief story about that, please click here.

 Happy Summer Solstice everyone.  I hope you can make the most of the longest day of the year.


  1. What a sweet story! You guys sound like you're very close sisters.

  2. Stephanie,

    I'm glad you liked that. It's true. We started that years ago when we weren't together for our birthdays anymore. We always celebrated together because we are a year and a day a part. There are three of us girls that are real close.
