My name is Ellen; welcome to my blog. I live in the Bluegrass, think about a lot of different things, and live life as best I can and with as much integrity as I can muster.
The things I like are cooking, shoes, children and my husband. Not necessarily in that order, you understand. It depends on the day.

I’ve been a writer all my life. I tell other people’s stories better than my own but since I don’t get out much, I’m stuck with the material close at hand, which is mostly me. My children provide pretty good fodder, so you’ll read about them quite a bit. Maintaining a husband is a lively business as well; it helps that he’s a good sport when I choose to exploit his foibles to relieve the tedium of blathering about my own.
Curious about the name of this blog? Read about it here.
