Wow, Julie, it appears you sent a friend request over a year ago that I somehow missed. Very sorry about that. How are things going for you at Ashland? Looking forward to reconnecting. All best, Marilyn
Hi Julie, I'm going on the French Alps Tour that Cynthia Caughey puts on. I'll be picked up in Geneva on June 9 (my birthday!) and departing on June 17. We'll be staying at L'Aravis Lodge overlooking Annency and at the Adelphia Hotel in Aix les Bains on Lake Bourget. I'll have a night before and after the tour in Geneva. I haven't been in some of that part of France. I think we might be going to Lyon where I have been, but not staying there.
Julie. Thanks for friending me. You know I admire your blog, and through it your brave spirit and your compassionate nature. I'm happy to be your 'digital' friend. I hope one day to be able to meet with you in person.
Welcome to the Global Writers group. Julie! Please feel free to post a self-intro on the wall and let us know all about yourself, your writing, and your global lifestyle! Looking forward to staying connected...
Hi Julie - thanks for the tip about joining the Blooming Late group, I will definitely look into it. This is such a new venture that at times it feels overwhleming and exciting in the same breath, lol.
Julie, I tried to comment on your blog right now and it wont let me at all, it just keeps putting me back to the top of the page, sont know if its my browser or your settings but thought I would let you know.
I love your top ten, you make me smile as always! And I am with ya on a few of them!
Julie! Thank you so much for the award, and congratulations to you for receiving it! I left a comment on your blog, but blogger often eats my words, and they don't show up. In the event that that's the case here, I wanted to leave you a message. You have WON THE AWARD AGAIN! Come see:
I saw your wonderful lead in to your new blog post, checked it out and now you are on my "Authors to envy and hate list" Im afraid! You are too good, you made me laugh and whats even worse is I have been on the net all my life and you're already throwing around more buzzwords (I mean really how dare you, TWEETDECK!???)than I even KNOW all the while modestly professing to know nothing!
As yet I Do not know what RSS feed is simply because I have yet to use it and usually only learn what I plan to use and Twitter isn't one I've gotten into yet either! Yes, I have followers and Tweet my blog posts or anyone else's blog posts I hate-er, I mean like. And have learned that HTML is the code to put the bottons on my site with but thats about it.
Your post was great and with a down to earth sense of humor like that I find it extremelly hard to believe you have ever laid awake wondering what to tweet.
I hope you know this "criticism" was in good fun and Im glad you are in my group!
I visited your blog (blogger won't let me comment, so I'm putting it here), and I have to say, crap! So that's my problem? This catch-22? Because try as I might, I can't get these last 10 pounds of baby weight to disappear. When I'm tired, I just say screw it and have a cookie. And working out? Forget it. I think I do need a workout buddy, but I live so far away from any of my friends, and when am I going to fit this in anyway? I'm glad it's not just me who experiences this "decision fatigue" as well. Very interesting post.
Hi Julie. Thanks for reading my work. And good luck with your memoir. Yes, it's a daunting process. Hang in there. I've read some extraordinarily well written memoirs, and in my humble view, the best do read like fiction in that they are so chock full of detail. Read Mary Karr's LIARS' CLUB and LIT, and Gabrielle Hamilton's BLOOD, BONES AND BUTTER.
it was very nice to see your message. I have already read some of your nice blogs. The recurring dreams you have written that is very touching. I feel and ask to myself why could not you be at your mom's feet, when she was departing. But anyway, you touched me. great keep writing you have the flare and passion. But one thing the image which u have used in this that on of a glass of water and few broken pieces of bread. It looks so pathetic. I have never seen food in that state. But...
Thank you for friending me and for sharing my site with your sister. I'm so happy to meet you and you found me just in time, as I'm putting the finishing touches on a post about She Writes, so I will give you a shout out in my post (with a link to your blog). Look for it tomorrow! I'll be visiting yours very soon, too.
"Jodi - This is so good. And so tragically humorous! I loved your book - your characters just jumped off the pages. Reminded me of my family and of many of the women I used to drink with!
Thank you for your courage and your humor. "
