Early this week, Hurricane Sally made landfall in the place I’d like to call home one day soon. Orange Beach, Alabama. My mother-in-law started wintering for a couple of months each year in Orange Beach a number of years ago. When she first told me about it, I thought “Alabama…really?

I saw this article this morning, and the headline is most certainly true. Perfect does not exist. However, I will say “perfect for me” does. My husband and IContinue reading “Mr. Perfect Does Not Exist!”

My YouTube Channel is up and my first video went live today! In it, I discuss my August reads with some short review and what’s next on my list. My channel name is the same as this website, View from my Landlocked Beach House.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic started and rocked everyone’s world (not in a good way), I find myself at home….a lot….all day, every day as a matter of fact, with a few exceptions of running small, short errands. I’m an Introvert, so the thought of staying at home all the time doesn’t bother me, although IContinue reading “Coming Soon…to a Screen near you”
