 Coffee Rings  by Yvonne Lehman

Hey Girlfriends,  You have got to check out Coffee Rings!  I promise you will have a hard time putting it down. Eunice, Annette, Ruby, and Lara are waiting to meet you within the 303 pages.  You will put a face and name, of your friends, to each of these vivid characters.  When it ends…you will be mad. You feel as though your four new friends left the country and you will never see them again. Yvonne leaves you wanting more. Well, she has plenty more. She is the author of 46 novels…but who’s counting 🙂  Check her out at Amazon.com

I feel privileged to know Yvonne. She is petite, attractive, smart and hilarious, all wrapped up in a down-to-earth, wonderful little package.   Enjoy!

Welcome Marvin Green!

 I had the privilege of hearing from a childhood friend recently. Marvin Green is about the funniest guy you would ever want to meet. He has a gift of making you laugh even through emails.  I have read his posts before and leaned back in my chair and just lost it laughing.

He sent me a picture (which I am still trying to load) and along with it he sent me a poem. Well, you know what I thought. Roses are red…Violets are blue…and then it would end with something hilarious.

When I opened it, the poem was unexpected and I loved it!   I want to share it with you.  By permission, I am happy to give you: A Beginning.


A Beginning


People come and go

in this life we live

and the paths that crisscross

are a labyrinth of accidents

that some how are joined to form

our existence.


Have you ever told someone

what they mean to you,

told them you respect, adore, even love them;

said to them that you

miss their company,

confessed all of these emotions

but got nothing in return?


Have you ever been so excited

to hear, see, touch someone?

The sight of them caused your eyes to brighten.

The sound of their voice,

and you utter a sigh.

The slightest touch and all was well,

nothing else mattered.


Have you wished a single day

might last a lifetime,

the feeling that all was right in this world,

the euphoria of glimpsing

that reciprocated feeling

of  love in your loved ones eyes,

while the silence rages in your ears

as you embrace?


Two lives mix

to become one.

A couple that will last

a thousand lives.

And it only starts by telling someone

what they mean to you.

 Happy New Year to everyone who visits my blog. Thank you for spending some of your precious time here with me. It is an honor to have you look at my pictures and read the short articles.  Comments are always appreciated. So please…come visit me often. May we become great friends in 2009!

So what are you hoping for in the coming year? Please leave a comment telling me what you would like to accomplish in the next 365 days. No really-I want to know. Take a minute and sound off for 2009.

Who me? Well…of course I want to lose the extra 10 , 20,  umm 35,  let’s see now…45, okay (gulp) 50 pounds of extra weight I’m carrying. I am a skinny woman trapped in a fat woman’s body. Can’t get out!  Maybe the real me…the one that is 50 pounds lighter will emerge this year.

 I want to be in the word and pray every day.Getting down on my knees and back up should not be the only exercise I get all year.

I want 2009 to be the year I put more than 37 miles on my treadmill.

Hoping this will be the year my hot flashes will stop. No one told me once they start you are sentenced to a life time of over heating!

I could go on and on but I would like to hear from you.

It is 12:01! January 1, 2009!
