“There was a teapot, in which Mma Ramotswe -- the only lady private

Pulitzer Prize winner for Fiction, 2008
I love to write!
And that's what my recent blogging hiatus has been about.
Writing book length fiction.
My posts will be short and sweet and infrequent because I'm choosing to visit more than post.
I just hate to miss a thing!
Have a Blessed week!
