Sunday Writing Session!



Sunday afternoon Gretchen I met for a writing session. We both have been slackers lately when it comes to writing. Both with different reasons for not following our bliss but after such a great session this past Sunday we made a decision to meet every Sunday evening. 

Afterwards we walked around enjoying the gardens. Here I captured Gretchen while she was watching two Robins enjoying their evening. Never could capture a photo of them.




This is where we decided to do our Sunday sessions. Isn't this the most beautiful library ever.


Caught Gretchen coming down the stairs of the activity center of the library.

Here is one of the many Gardens that surround the Library.

I love taking pictures of flowers. Not bad for a small digital. lol


Can you tell that this is a Bird Nest built on a ceiling of a porch. Gretchen being 12 inches taller than me took this picture. I could not believe it turned out where the bird was peaking out of the nest.


Hope you enjoyed our evening together. I have to add that I read several scenes from Gretchen's screen play and WOW has this young lady got talent. She in turn read a few of my chapters and was excited for me and of course encouraged me to quit the Sheriff's Office and just write. Wouldn't that be sweet.

Off to bed here in a little while because I have to go back to the dentist in the morning at 7am because she messed up with my impressions and they have to be redone. Now how is that for continued luck. Especially when her office is two hours away. Then she will send the impressions off to the lab and should have them back by Monday so when the Oral Surgeon pulls the rest of my tooth she can put the temporary in.

Gosh I am still in shock of loosing such a important tooth. As always I laughed my fool head off with your comments about my bad luck. lol.....You guys kill me but in the best way.

I have to be at work in the morning by 11am so I am going to be cutting it close getting there in time. Today we had to book in another murderer. He shot his girlfriend and her mother. I am beginning to think that for a small Texas County that this is starting to be like a bad nightmare. Eight in a small jail now is unreal.

Ms Pearl came out too today at work. My Corporal made a comment that I did not like and of course before I knew it Ms Pearl let him know he was totally out of place. He told the others, "I knew if I worked long enough with Maggie I would bring out Ms. Pearl!"

Enjoy life follow your Bliss amazing things are waiting on us.

Sweet Dreams
and Love to All
Maggie

Your spirit seems a little higher. Glad the tooth will be getting fixed. We have dentists on every corner and you have to drive 2 hours. Gretchen is beautiful. Glad that you are writing together. Stay away from those bad people. Too many of them in one building for sure. (((((HUGS))))

Dear Maggie,

How lovely to catch up with you again and sorry I took so long to come and visit.
Isn't it a problem when our teeth play up - I have had root canal and the crown and really no fun and expensive.
That must be so much fun writing with Gretchen, she is beautiful and loved your photographs.
The flowers are pretty and what a strange bird nest - what sort of bird is it, do you know?
Sending you lots of hugs for a great week and good luck at the dentist and at work.

Hugs
Carolyn

Gretchen is a cutie! I'm glad you two have each other to share your love of writing. That bird nest is really strange..it almost reminds me of a hornets nest! Glad it's not! Be safe at work and I really enjoyed the garden pics. Looks so peaceful! Have a good week!

Ok, I have to ask...who is Ms Pearl?

Mumsy and Company said...

Good to see a blog from you again sweet Maggie. Glad you are getting your tooth taken care of and hope you don't lose any more. Mercy!! With all those murders they keep piling in there you need to keep Ms. Pearl handy at all times. Glad to hear you and Gretchen had a nice writing session. You sure were at a beautiful place. Very nice pictures. Love and Hugs

Donna said...

Love your pictures...Gretchen is a hottie! It's good to see your photos...the nest is amazing! That Corporal now knows not to mess with Ms Pearl! Smart man....cool you!

Looks like I finally may be able to comment on your blog after being denied for a long time. This has really been a pain. We will see if this goes through.

Meghan said...

I think it's awesome that you get together to write! And a screenplay? I cannot wait to hear more! Beautiful pictures, by the way!

Like Debby, I am glad to hear that it seems like your spirits have lifted, Maggie. Maybe it was letting Ms. Pearl out for a little bit! : ) So glad you and Gretchen got to put in a writing session and what a lovely place to do it.

I get together with a group of local writers every other week through much of the year. It is so very helpful to have feedback and encouragement.

Tam said...

Maggie so glad you did this post. I enjoyed hearing about your day with beautiful Gretchen. It is good for both of you to do these sessions. I know with anything words of encouragement keep us inspired.
You know I am from Tx too but I have never seen a bird build a nest like this out of dirt. Something I have to look up on Google ....lol
Thank goodness Ms Pearl still has it because I have missed her. I would be willing to bet the Cpl is a younger man who thinks he knows it all. If he did he would know not to mess with Ms Pearl.....go get him Pearl...lol
Been having trouble commenting on here but I have heard Bloggers say things have been screwed up a while.
Take care my friend and smile big with or without that tooth.
Always your biggest fan
Tam

Hi Maggie,

You are always on my mind and in my prayers dear friend.
I am so happy you have Gretchen and that the two of you get along so very well. God put beautiful Gretchen in your life at the right time and visa versa for you to be in Gretchen's life!
How I love that picture of her sitting on the porch!
I love all of your pictures. The flowers are so pretty.
Good luck my dear at the dentist. I hope this time they will make a good enough imprint...they better for a 4 hour commute on your part.
Works sounds really tough and I know it is hard for you. Rely on
the lord in all that you do!

Miss you dear call me when you can.

Love and Hugs,

Susan

The pictures of the flowers took my breath away.
So beautiful.

Sorry the tooth thing is such a pain. Not fun to have any kind of dental issues.

Glad to know Ms. Pearl is alive and well.! I {heart} her!

Cutie he is!

Your friend Gretchen is really very pretty. I am glad you two are getting together each week. I don't know where you get you inspiration to write a couple of chapers a week. I could never even think of writing a book. I have trouble enough trying to finish my history. I'm beginning to wonder if I ever will.
