About Me

My Photo
Well let’s see. I was born during the Blizzard of 1978 in Lima, Ohio. I have lived in Ohio all my life. I like it here. We have corn fields instead of oceans, overpasses instead of mountains and fog instead of smog. Sure it's not the promise land, but sometimes one doesn't need postcard worthy beauty on the outside to have it elsewhere. I'm a writer for fun, a Paralegal for profession, and while one pays the bills, one feeds my imagination, or perhaps my imagination feeds my writing...either way, Writing is as much of who I am as the color of my eyes, or the way that I smile. Blogs are great communication tools, and I'm here to communicate with YOU...yeah, you who's reading this right now....*assuming anyone's out there* *crickets chirp* Alrightee then, IF anyone should find themselves here, be it by accident or on purpose, welcome, glad to have you aboard. Throw anchor, stay awhile! Sunshine & Smiles, ~Heather Lynn~

Home Fires Burning:

This one going out to the one I love....Jerimy...

So my new full time job now that I'm home all day is
the constant cycle of stoking fires.

I have become obsessed with everything related to heat capture.

Let me tell you, the first time you get an electric bill that's nearly $600.00...you too will become a crazy heat and energy stalker.

I have towels rolled up and pressed up against the bottom of my outside doors serving as draft stoppers.  I have covered all the air vents in the ceiling for our summertime central air.

I hung a sheet over our big window in the kitchen that's a bit drafty.
I've measured all the windows in our house....so I can day dream about being able to afford new ones one day.

The Fireplace in the Living room is lit and providing heat.

Our wood burning furnace is filled and blowing out heat....

Meanwhile, I run around the house like a psychotic meter reader, touching each "electric baseboard heater" feeling if they are on, if they are hot or cold.  If they are cold, I'm my own hero!  I've combated the evil forces of the energy suckers once again and came out victorious!

No woman who is NOT receiving a pay check due to being off on Medical Leave can have a $600 electric bill...so I stoke the fires, I dedicate myself to them as if they were my job.

This morning, I packed Jerimy a lunch, and prepared a fruit smoothie for him placed it into a travel mug so he could have a nice healthy breakfast....

This whole June Cleaver

Meets Fire Stoking Frontier's Woman:

Leaves me thinking:

Just Kidding!
