Not Much to Say

Mindy here and, frankly, I have no idea what to share with you today. Nothing new or exciting to share. Just life moving on at what sometimes feels like warp speed.

As coordinator for ACFW's Carol Awards, which recognizes the best in Christian fiction from the previous year, I have my hands (and house) full of entries. By the March 18th deadline, I will have well over a thousand books in my possession. It's like Christmas every day when the USPS, UPS, or FedEx arrives. I love looking at the titles and cover art.

Spring is springing here in Texas. Trees are budding. Daffodils are in bloom. Of course, that means it's time to head outdoors to clean out flowerbeds, trim, and mow. Once again, I'm praising God that I'm not an allergy sufferer. Especially as I throw open the windows and allow that fresh air to invade my winter-stale house.

Our four year old granddaughter still keeps me busy. Oh, what I wouldn't give to be bored :-) Yesterday, she took note of all the new grass in the backyard. Next thing I knew, she had her little fists full of the fresh green and was sprinkling it through every room of the house as though she were celebrating spring by adding life to every room. In the words of Forrest Gump, that's all I have to say about that.

So what's new and exciting in your world? Or is it just the same old same. Are you looking forward to spring? What does it mean for you?

Happy Tuesday, y'all. And be sure to drop by my personal blog, Divine Imagination. This week's author interview is with Barbara Harrison, who writes as Leann Harris. You would win a copy of her latest release, Second Chance Ranch.


  1. Mindy,
    I am greatly comforted by the fact that you didn't have much to say because when it comes to my blog - many days - I just don't have anything to say!

  2. LOL! Well, Edwina, I'm glad you found some comfort in my silence:-)

  3. How cute to have grass in each room in your house!! :) I'm sure you weren't thinking it's quite as cute as I think it is, though. hehe

    Pretty much the same here, too. United Methodist Women circle meeting. High school tennis match (my son won, and team won, too!) and then picked up my daughter. Also worked on my manuscript--doing a second read through and adding more detail this time through.

  4. Missy, we lead such exciting lives.

  5. Yeah. Mom's cheerleader and taxi service. :)

  6. We are still snow covered here and I am so looking forward to what you are seeing outside... grass and daffodils - I can't wait!

    I am on a little trip to the Boston area this week and having lots of fun! :)

  7. Oh, Iove Boston, Eva Marie! Have fun!

  8. Mindy,
    You know writers lead very glamorous lives!! And we make so much money, honey where is that lady you hired to clean up the grass?

  9. Eva, I hope you enjoy your trip. I'd love to visit Boston sometime.
