Detecting and #Nails #MondayRecommends

At home? Bored? Be a detective!

The ever-fabulous AtlasObscura has an article advising us “How to Help Librarians and Archivists From Your Living Room”. Decipher letters that are crossed and recrossed (you Regency Romance readers know what I’m talkin’ about). Browse through the Madam C. J. Walker archives. Tag photographs. Transcribe documents. So much to do!

Me? I’m never bored. Plenty to do, and I’ve been doing my nails, of course!

I finally kinda sorta almost all-but succeeded in dong a gradient, with a reverse gradient stamp on top. Purple, for Lent.

Then Charlie noted that his imaginary newscaster girlfriend, Krystal Ball, did her nails in a neutral tone the color of her skin, which I took as a challenge. At the same time, I accepted a challenge in the Facebook Maniology Community to do something cozy. So I did this:

Charlie liked the base polish.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: What does “cozy” mean to you?



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      Painting nails and hunting mushrooms. Life is good in the backwoods.

    Have I mentioned I love the nudes? I do. And I love them with the sparkle and a fancy ring finger, too!
    Enjoyed imaginary girlfriend bit. My husband loves one of the weather ladies, and I doubt he looks at her nails 😉

      I don’t like the nudes, especially this one, which is the same color as my skin. It’s creepy. I wouldn’t wear it for anybody but Charlie. That’s how much I love him. <3
