I Used Too Many Words Today

...leaving me with few to use for a complete blog post.  Here is my thanks for today:  

100 Days to Go, I Can’t Believe It!

This is it, the homestretch.  I've blogged for 265 days.  There are days when I've posted more than once because I got into the Weekly Photo Challenge; and have enjoyed adding to my repertoire. I'll admit it hasn't been easy--and I've surprised myself.  Maximizing the writing prompts that are offered every day by Word Press has helped … Continue reading 100 Days to Go, I Can’t Believe It!

Pride & Joy, Prized Possessions

I'd like to think that I don't really put too much value in having "things" as I get older.  Maybe its age, wisdom, or my brush with cancer; or maybe it's having two cats that run around the house willy-nilly and have broken several of my favorite knickknacks.   Over the years I've collected music boxes, rocking chairs, and pieces … Continue reading Pride & Joy, Prized Possessions

The Wanderer: Daily Prompt

Tell us about the top five places you’ve always wanted to visit. GO! I'm not a traveler by nature, never really been bitten by the bug. There are places I'd like to see, though. In no particular order they are: Ireland; to find out about my ancestors Hawaii; to see the pineapple plantations and volcanic … Continue reading The Wanderer: Daily Prompt

Daily Prompt: Make Me Smile

If you’re feeling blah, what is the one thing you do that you can count on to put a smile on your face? There is one thing I do to make me smile when I’m having a difficult day.  I look at pictures and stories about my great-nephew, Liam, and my great-niece, Lily.  Whenever I'm … Continue reading Daily Prompt: Make Me Smile

Write What You Know

In today’s challenge, you’ll reflect on your origin story and tell us how and why you became a writer. In high school, 11th grade, I had to write a fiction story. It was a college prep class so we wrote a lot that year; essays, poems, stories. It was before I'd learned to type and … Continue reading Write What You Know

Catching Up in Writing Prompts

On the interview show Inside the Actors’ Studio, host James Lipton asks each of his guests the same ten questions. What are your responses? Today, I was digging back through some older writing prompts to find something that would tickle my fancy.  I came across this one from last November.  I didn't write about it then, … Continue reading Catching Up in Writing Prompts

Cat Inside the Basket (Weekly Photo Challenge)

Most cats enjoy finding out-of-the-way places to tuck in and nap, especially in the sunshine!  Our cat Bubba is no exception.  One Saturday afternoon I found him in the magazine basket he'd knocked over in the bathroom--a favorite place for him especially on warm days.  Enjoy! Inside other bloggers posts: Weekly Photo Challenge: I’m Inside … Continue reading Cat Inside the Basket (Weekly Photo Challenge)

I’m A Hershey Girl

What is your favorite sweet thing to eat? Bread pudding? Chocolate chip oatmeal cookies? A smooth and creamy piece of cheesecake? Tell us all about the anticipation and delight of eating your favorite dessert. Not into sweets? I like sweets, no doubt about it.  When I saw today's writing prompt I thought "this is gonna … Continue reading I’m A Hershey Girl

If You Have the Power

More a thought for the day and not a thank you, I offer you this as a suggestion for what to do when, you don't know what to do.
