Moon Phase Waxing Gibbous

At the first of the year, I decided I wanted to do a word list.

This is the result so far. I must admit, this endeavor has been harder than I expected. First, remembering to do it has been hard. Also, sometimes, I remember to jot things down in my journal on my phone and never get it transformed over to the computer.

I’ve got to be honest and say during the month of May, I didn’t get to the list. May was Sickness + Community – Virtual and Real = Supportive Friendships.

It was Trial – Triumph – No more – No less.

Disclaimer, this is flipping hard.

The first 15 days of June have been a whirlwind trying to catch up.

The words were, Chaos, Calamity, Confusion.

I got through by making a new friend.

Neighbor – Sherry = Awesome.

June 16, Father.

That’s where I am now. Come again to see updates as I try to continue with this challenge.

Braided Love

A house with a fence

Description automatically generated

Book Cover Description

The front cover features a two-story farmhouse with a peaked roof and a covered front porch. The house is white with dark trim around the windows and a light blue door. There are two visible windows on the second floor and three on the first, with curtains partially drawn. The porch has two white columns and a bench swing. In front of the house is a wooden fence with three horizontal rails. The background shows a clear blue sky, a calm body of water to the left, and autumn-colored trees to the right. The title “Braided Love” is written in a cursive, golden font at the top, and the author’s name is at the bottom in a simple, white font. Taking up most of the back of the book, besides the following text, is a red Corvette.

Back Cover Text

“Summer on the ranch seems safe and predictable for Brenda. All she has on her mind are trips into town with Nick Haynes and the horsehair rope she’s braiding so she can start training her Morgan colt, Tenacity. Then Cathy arrives from the city with a troubled past and an uncertain future. As Cathy adjusts to life in the country, both girls begin to figure out what family bonds really mean to them in a world that isn’t as simple as it appears.”

About the Author

She has earned two college degrees, one in human services and one in nonprofit organization management. She freelances these days as an editor and a braille proofreader.

As an author, Pinto entertains her readers while giving them food for thought. In her fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, she draws on personal experience to illustrate that hope is always an action away.

Pinto lives in Colorado with her husband and their teenage daughter. Their family also includes Pinto’s guide dog Spreckles, a poodle/Maltese mix called Leo, and an aging family cat who answers to the name Sam-I-Am when he feels like it.
