I know it’s been quiet here for a little while at Steak and a Bible. I hope to change that soon and get back into the rhythm of regular posts. April was a crazy month for a number of reasons, including this very gorgeous one. Continue reading
This month I put a few books on hold to return to later, while picking up these titles. Continue reading
My posts have been sparse lately and I wanted to explain why and give my readers some idea of when I’ll be back in action.
I took on an extra freelancing job for the last month and half that, once added to all of my other jobs, maxed me out. It was a great opportunity and an immense challenge and I’m grateful for it. But I’ll be happy when it is done and my life returns to “normal.” Continue reading
Well, my plans to blog daily on this trip have fallen through. My schedule has been jam-packed. On Saturday alone, I spent time in four separate towns: Ventura (I recommend Le Petite Paris), Los Olivos, Solvang and Santa Barbara (be sure to see the courthouse).

As of this evening I’m on vacation. I’m abandoning the east coast for nearly two weeks to enjoy far cooler weather in the Pacific northwest. I’ve been dying to visit Seattle for a couple of years and now my trip is so close I can taste it. It tastes like Starbucks…
I’m off to see friends, take in as many of Seattle’s sights as I can cram in, visit my cousins and dance to some great jazz music at the Seattle Lindy Exchange (where I am sure to make many new friends).
This unfortunately means a break from blogging, although I will probably manage to find some time to tweet.
