March 2021 Newsletter
I remember the joy of springtime when my kids were preschoolers. I didn’t have to bundle them up in coats and boots and scarfs. I didn’t have to make each of their ten little fingers fit into the appropriate slot in a glove. All I had to do was open the door and let them out into the sunshine!
I never thought there could be a more joyous spring than this memory, but after the suffocation of a COVID winter in Ohio, my soul is bubbling in anticipation as Spring 2021 approaches.
As my heart screams, “LET THERE BE LIGHT!” I offer this LIGHT-hearted newsletter to share my joy.
The only thing I’m planting this spring is my tushie in a lawn chair. If you feel like I do, here are a couple of fun books to read as you sit there. (A lot more book reviews on my website.)
Evvie Drake Starts Over: When Evvie and Dean become friends, they make a pact: He won’t ask about her dead husband, and she won’t ask about his dead baseball career. In this way, they learn – and teach us – how to negotiate life in the aftermath of reaching a dead end.
Eliza Starts a Rumor: A rumor on an online women’s forum brings four ladies together. One is agoraphobic, two have straying husbands, and the fourth is raising a newborn alone. They show us what friendship is all about.
LIGHTEN UP YOUR WARDROBE WITH A NEW T-SHIRT:

Need a ray of sunshine? This one is available as a T-shirt too – or as a notecard, mug, tote bag, sweatshirt, or poster.
There’s one final chuckle at the end, but before reaching it, thanks for reading this quarterly newsletter. I am hoping two things:
- That you tell your friends about me and ask them to join my mailing list.
- That you add a pun or other bit of springtime silliness in the comments section below.
Here’s the last chuckle then it’s time to quit reading, and TIME TO CELEBRATE SPRING!
