A Photo Diary - Brinda Berry

Brinda's new book is sold in aid of charity (see below for details). I'm getting it. 

A Photo Diary of My Week ~ Brinda Berry

I'm so glad Sue and I are swapping blogs today. I've been very busy, and photos are a great way to share my week with you. I'm promoting the paperback release of The Waiting Booth and the digital release of a charity project called Wild at Heart that includes my short story, "Home by Midnight". Working my day job and writing at night keep me busy, but I've managed to have some fun as well. Let me show you. After checking out my post, I hope your readers will visit your  photo diary at my place,

Monday: My desk is not covered up on the first day of the week. It's a nice way to start.

Tuesday: My husband said he needed to entertain customers by taking them to a concert. He asked if I wanted to go along and sit in the company's box at the arena. Who was playing?  It was a return to the 80s with Journey, Loverboy, and Pat Benetar. I knew all the words to the songs. Woohooo! Yes, my husband rocks.

Wednesday: I attended a work conference about federal grant guidelines. If I'm smiling in the pic, it's because it was during a break.

Thursday: I had lunch away from the office at a little place with sandwiches and salads. I had a Tuna Crunch sandwich. I don't think I've ever had tuna salad with nuts in it. I'll order it again.

Friday: One of my favorite days of the week. Friday night usually means a dinner with my husband and a rental movie I've downloaded on the Playstation.  My dog Gus is in play mode.

Saturday: Writing in the morning and a workout are both on the agenda.

Sunday: I love to get up early to write and check email. My two little feet warmers are under the table.

Thanks for having me as a guest, Susan.

  1. Lovely to be a flyonyour wall, Brinda - and I love your feetwarmers! Wild at Heart looks amazing and such a worthwile cause. Hope you sell shedloads! Off to check it out now

  2. Thanks Cat! I'm getting it...

  3. Good morning, Brinda!

    The pictures of your week don't do justice to the mayhem, multi-tasking, and master of all things techie and writing related.

    No need to prompt me to purchase the books. I've got both, and applaud the content and cause.

    Why didn't you show us a picture of your desk at 10:00 a.m. on Monday? Huh? And why did I envision you as one of those people with four computers going at the same time? Oh, right. I know the answers.

    One, your desk is likely as neat at 10 as it was at 8 because you manage to whip things from to-do to to-done faster than I can take my next sip of coffee.

    Two, the purchase order for additional monitors is pending senior management approval, right?

  4. Thanks, Cat and Gloria for taking time to visit!

    Sue- Thank you for having me as a guest. :)

  5. I'm jealous about the 80's concert. :) Looks like you had a great week. I love the dog picture.

  6. I want to go to the concert too!

  7. So much easier to write with a loving dog nearby. Mine is by the front door, pining for my hubby. :)

  8. Hi Gloria!. Thank you too Brinda, and you're always welcome. It did sound like a great concert Ciara and Elizabeth. I wish I had a dog, Libby!

  9. So great to see you here, Brinda! Love that you make it a point to put in some workout time in your day. Very important!


  10. Grant writing - yeah, I wouldn't be smiling during that either. And Friday nights should always be movie nights.

  11. I love that idea of doing a photo diary. Fascinating.

  12. Oh yes, Nutschell, exercise is so necessary. Hi Alex and Rosalind!

  13. Brinda, what a great idea, you and Susan sharing a week in your lives!
    That concert sounds fabulous and I'm very impressed by your orderly desk. Better do some tidy up here.

  14. What a clever way to share your activities! Fun!

  15. Anonymous8:01 pm

    OMG what a tidy desk!! and your dog is super. Lovely post, Brinda.

  16. Pat Benetar??? So jealous! I would have been singing right along with you. Your husband totally ROCKS. Your feet warmers are completely adorable, too.

  17. The description of your Friday night makes me miss my hubby (he's deployed again) :(. What a wonderful week, except for the grant stuff, yawn.

  18. Ciara and Elizabeth- I had so much fun. Pat Benetar performs with her hunky husband (of 30 years). I thought that was super cool.

    Libby- Dogs are the best writing partners.

    Nutschell- I feel so much better when I do. I'm off to zumba in another hour.

    Alex- I love movie nights.

    Rosalind- It's so nice to meet you.

    Sharon- That's only Monday morning. It doesn't stay like that.

    Ally- It was fun to see Sue's photos at my blog. :)

    Elin- I do more things online than with paper, so maybe that explains it. :)

    Tami- Wouldn't trade my feet warmers for a million dollars. lol

    Isis- Oh. :( Hope he's back stateside soon.

  19. Great photojournal! I love your feet warmers!

  20. How nice to write for charity!

    Loved the pics! And what a fun concert!!! Total score!

  21. Great project Brinda, I will definitely buy this book. I am a real sucker for mutts of any kind. Love your *feet warmers*.


  22. Tyrean- Thanks for commenting. My feet warmers are pretty special (and warm).

    PK- My local RWA chapter visited the refuge last year while at a conference in the area. We left with a mission.

    Jianne- Thanks so much!! I'm sure the tigers would send you hugs.
