A writer being all writerly with my blog. My current work in progress is an urban fantasy novel (Yay vampires!), with historical elements. I love animals (even the creepy ones), a buttery glass of wine, and a good book or series on Netflix that I can binge watch with my hubby. Special talent: hula hooping. Favorite food: Sushi. Fun fact: I believe in ghosts.
I created this blog to engage, you know make chit chat, with the world around me (everyone can always use more friends). I hope to inspire, motivate and maybe make you laugh or at least do that weird snort thing people do when reading something funny on the internet. I’m also kinda crafty and I have a garden. Notice I didn’t say that I garden. I can’t make that claim–my husband does all the work.
My posts are usually about my daily adventures, everything from pesky grocery receipts to discovering bed bugs at a small chain hotel.
By the way, I have cats. And I know you love looking at pictures of other peoples cats, so here you go:

Thank you for stopping by Not Pretending (to be sane) and submitting a post about you and your hubby. I enjoyed it, and I’m sure my readers will too 🙂
Thank you for the opportunity 🙂 It was fun to write!
You have a very beautiful blog, thanks for stopping by mine. I have nominated you for the Liebster Award. You can find the details here:
Thanks for stopping by my blog and putting a like on “Lines and Patterns”
Your welcome. You have some great work!!
Thanks for coming by and checking out my blog 🙂
What a great page! I certainly did that “weird snort thing” a few times! 🙂
Thanks! I love that weird snort thing 🙂
Great intro. Love your enthusiasm and your cat pics. Your admission about believing in ghosts reminded me of my blog post Ghost Stories–I think you’ll enjoy that one. Thank you stopping by today.
Thanks for coming by! I tend to obsess over my cats like most people do their kids, but I try to keep the posting of their pictures to a minimum 🙂 I’ll certainly check out your post. I love a good ghost story.
Thanks for coming by and liking one of my posts. I very much enjoyed your all about me page. You are so funny. Loved the cats! “The cat in the background isn’t real.” LOL
I like a vampire book now and again, too. Historical fiction is one of my favorites. I usually do not do this, but I posted about a series by Deborah Harkness a while back. Have you read her All Souls Trilogy? (third one is in progress) The first one is A Discovery of Witches. They are so good and I bet right up your alley. You’ve probably read them.
Anyway, if you want more info on what they’re about you can read my post. http://oldestdaughterredheadedsister.com/2013/09/09/cant-this-book-take-a-hint/
It doesn’t do them serious justice but it’ll give you an idea. Have a great weekend!
I’ll have to check out your post. I do know about the books, and I really want to read them, but I haven’t. I struggle with whether I should read other vampire books, especially one that seems similar to mine. I don’t want to be influenced by other vampire worlds, if that makes sense.
It makes complete sense. Maybe to celebrate the completion of yours. 🙂
Hi! Thanks for following my blog and liking a few posts. I love your blog, especially the idea of letting “Libby” take over on Fridays. I love your header picture too,as I was a little obsessed with Phillipa Gregory novels for a while. They are seriously crack for book nerds.
Thanks. Libby has been fun and it’s been a great exercise to learn more about one of my supporting characters.
The Phillipa Gregory novels are great. I had to include them in the picture!
Thanks for coming by 🙂
i look forward to seeing more of Libby!
Oh, thanks. She has been really fun to work with and it’s surprising the things she comes up with each week 🙂

I’m so glad you came by!
Hey! I’ve just nominated your for the Liebster Award: http://thepocketguidetolucylocket.wordpress.com/2014/01/16/the-liebster-award/
Thanks! I’ll check it out 🙂
Netflix?? Like “Orange is the new Black?”” Or “House of Cards??”” Thanks for dropping by and following “Honey.” I’ll be back when I have unlimited internet. 🙂
I guess I should clarify, not just Netflix original series (although I love Orange is the New Black, haven’t seen House of Cards yet), but a lot of the old shows found on Netflix too 🙂
I have nominated you for the Liebster Award in recognition of your fantastic blog. More details can be found here: http://heatherbcosta.wordpress.com/2014/01/25/the-liebster-award/
Thanks, Heather! I’ll see what I can do 🙂
You’re very welcome!
Vampire romance novel? As long as there’s no hat dances… And you have a person named Libby living in your head… BIG surprise there. All right Windram, you are clearly the real deal here. Trent want fiction! Well, I’ll wander about and check out the place. Your husband is cute, by the way. Just don’t tell Art I said that.
I know, it’s an original concept. Try to wrap your head around what a vampire romance novel might look like. You probably can’t do it.
Oh, the fiction. It’s all part of Libby’s blog, but I’ve slacked off on it greatly. It was hard writing all her posts and actually working on the book at the same time…
I might still be trying for the head minion position and you know I like to tattle, so…
Yikes, the competition continues! Give us some fiction, would you – anything will do.
Yep, you better watch your back.
I’ll try. It’s always easier just to write about my laundry and messy house. I’m a path of least resistance type of gal.
I can respect that. Bet your house isn’t as messy as mine – I have three kids ripping it to pieces on a daily basis.
Probably true. But we’re amazingly messy for two adults. Really, my husband is just a large child.
Most men are, you know.
Hi Jennifer, I’ve nominated you for a Versatile Blogger Award but I see you’ve received one already! Never mind, here’s the link anyway if you want to check it out (again!):
Thanks for a great blog!
Thanks for the nomination. I’m pretty bogged down right now, but I’ flattered that you thought of me 🙂
Great blog! Please follow me back on http://www.authorsophia.wordpress.com for author interviews, book reviews, travel, beauty, inspirational qoutes, and a diary of my life in Spain, and writing process x
Thanks, I’ll check it out.
I love reading your posts, from Libby to pigeons, and so I nominated you for the Liebster award. The rules, should you choose to accept, are on my most recent post:
Oh, thank you so much. I’ve been so bogged down lately that I haven’t been able to do awards, but I’ll see what I can do. Thanks!
How do you tell the difference between Lindie and Olive?? are you trying to trick me?? I love kitties! Lindie, in a paper bag, in a pyrex baking dish. Only we can’t see her cause she’s hiding. haha!
Ha! It’s easier to tell in real life. Olive is about 6 lbs heavier, which is a lot for a cat. Their fur is different too.
They’re so clever aren’t they 🙂 Lindie actually is a really good hider and hunter. I have to supervise her in the backyard so she doesn’t bring us any “gifts”.
Understood. My Spiffy T would fit in well, she’s a tuxedo fulla trouble. The kids call her George, even argue with me when I say her real name is Spiffy T. I need to keep reminding myself that I don’t need to get another kitty. I am probably over the village limit for animals now.
Just to let you know that I’ve nominated your awesome blog for a ton of awards. Acceptance is strictly voluntary but I wanted you to know that I love what you do 🙂
Details can be found here: http://heatherbcosta.wordpress.com/2014/08/24/my-award-cup-runneth-over/
Thanks, Heather! I’ll check it out. I need to get some posts written, maybe something will inspire me 🙂
Hi Jen! OMG your one kitty (MoJo) looks like my baby girl, Schiefer 😀
Oh, funny. Well if your kitty, Schiefer, is anything like MoJo, she’s probably really good at choosing the most inopportune time to sit in your lap.
I just stumbled across you’re blog today and I’ve been enjoying it so far! Love your humor and can’t wait to hear more! 🙂
Thanks, Britta! I’m glad you came by and I’ll be checking out your blog too 🙂
Thanks for dropping by my blog Jennifer. And welcome to Maine
Hi Jennifer, do you remember the Librarylady from wordpress? I clicked on a link to your old blog the other day and it didn’t work. I was sad so I tracked you down. You can’t hide from the library lady! I wasn’t sure if this was really the same Jennifer Windram until I read about the Chapstick people diorama, then I knew. You crack me up. Glad to follow you again.
