My Dream Came True- Finally

Now available at http://www.amazon.com/author/lynneckerle In both print form and on your Kindle It all started the day I finished a novel and thought I can write one that’s better.

The Black Spruce Bog

The Ground shifted under my feet. I looked to my right and there was Brenda, bouncing up and down with a big smile on her face. I have to admit, the sensation of the earth moving beneath my feet was pretty awesome. I did some bouncing of my own.  We were in a Black Spruce …

It Was All In The Music

I was riding down the road yesterday listening to Simon and Garfunkel’s Concert in Central Park; one of the best sound tracks ever recorded. As I sang along to America, I noticed that Paul Simon and I sing in the same key. Being from Michigan, my favorite line is: it took three days to hitchhike …

Moving On Up

I did it! I moved out of my historic two-story country brick home and bought a lovely ranch house just two miles from my son. I no longer run up and down the stairs with loads of laundry, but I also no longer enjoy the smell of sun-dried sheets on my bed and the roughness …

The Lemons Are Ripe!

It is harvest time! The lemons are ripe and need picking. .  There are two on my dwarf Ponderosa lemon tree this year, each the size of a softball. I’ve decided to try a new Lemon recipe this year. I’m going to use one of the lemons to make Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins. I’m glad …

The Orchid Show – Are We There Yet?

   My cousin Robin and I took a drive last weekend to Meijer Gardens for the Grand Valley Orchid Show. We had our cameras, lenses and other gear ready to go. I thought she knew the way, we’d been there before. But, she had counted on me having directions since the trip was my idea. …
