What I’m Working On August 2017

Happy August! I’m glad we’re getting closer to fall, as autumn is my favorite season of the year. I’m sad we’re getting closer to fall because it means that in 11 days, my oldest will be moving to college. He’s going to have a great time, though, and he’ll get to study what he loves – music and theater. Things have been slow-ish around here, as they usually are during the summer, but the momentum is picking up. Here’s what I’m working on this month.


Getting the new blog, Just a Sec(ular) Homeschooler, up and running has been taking a little longer than I’d like, but I’m happy to say, it will be debuting its first post at the end of this month.  Yay! Don’t worry, I’ll make a big announcement about it when it launches.

I haven’t posted on Activism My Way in a little while. That will change soon.

I’ve posted a lot of book reviews on Wining Wife® recently. If you are looking for a good read for the last few weeks of summer, you’ll want to head over there and check it out. I also wrote a review of Bean Box. I love coffee as much as I love wine, and we loved the trial of this coffee subscription box so much that we decided to continue it.

I also started a weekly “Motivation Monday” post on this blog.

Non-Profit Work

J.B. Dondolo is hosting the “To Give Is To Love Gala” in Dallas on November 10th. We need to sell tables of 10 to companies. If you or someone you know would be interested in attending this splendid event, you can purchase tickets here. Proceeds go toward getting clean water to Igusi Hosptial. you can read more about J.B. Dondolo here.

We’d love to get a couple more fundraising events going as well. Please, if you’re using Amazon for a purchase, choose to do so through Amazon Smile ( and select our charity. There is no additional cost to you for doing this.

Equanimity Magazine

The summer edition of Equanimity Magazine is out! Lumbie Mlambo, CEO of the magazine is on the cover. You can find the issue here, and be sure to check out my article, “A Five-Minute Productivity Solution.” I have a few interviews to write up for the next issue, including a chat with a new Christian rap music artist.

Ronda B. Handmade

I just got in a bunch of fabric so that I can make some fun things. I’ll be participating in a couple of blog tours in September. I’m also looking forward to sewing to stock my online shop. You can join my Facebook group. It’s quiet right now, but I’ll be loading more into it soon.

Now is the time to place orders for Halloween. Please contact me through the group if you’re looking for a custom Halloween costume in order to allow plenty of time to get the costume.


I’m continuing to work for EVG, the recovery center, and a new app developer. You can read my latest EVG post here “How to Emergency-Proof Your Content.” I have an academic abstract to finish editing for a client as well.

Independent Scholar

I had an abstract accepted for the upcoming Wikileaks and Philosophy volume. I’m really excited about that. I’ll be working on my essay between now and then.

I’m sure there are things I’m leaving out, but those are the big projects on my horizon this month. So now, I turn the tables and ask you, what are you working on this month?
