Use Your Words January 2015

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

My words are:
Bitter ~ watch ~ wild ~ stand ~ chat               
They were submitted by:      
**Thank you for such inspiring words!!**

Take 1:

I don't know if it makes me a bitter person, but my mind goes wild with jealousy, when I have to stand and watch you chat with other women.

Take 2:

I hate to stand by and watch you chat with other women.
It drives my mind wild with hurt and jealousy.
I guess you could call me bitter.
Maybe I am.
I cannot help it.
Not that long ago, it was me that held your attention.
I was the object of your affection.
I miss that. 
I miss you. 
I miss us.

Thank you for taking the time to read this! I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

  1. Wow! Inspiring and intense words used so well by you. I am impressed that take one had every word contained in one sentence!

    1. Thank you! <3 The first thing that came to mind was that one sentence. I wanted to try to expand on it, so Take 2 came about. I still feel like I could/should do more. I feel and edit coming on.

  2. I can feel the pain in your words, especially take 2 which felt so poetic. I think you need to turn this into a full story.

    1. Thank you. I would love to expand on it. I feel like there is more there, but it is just below the surface. Definitely a possible edit in the future!

  3. It's an art to tell a story in very few words. You master it!
    PS: I hope it's fiction?

    1. Thank you very much. That compliment means a lot to me. It is fiction based loosely on experience. I am really not a jealous person by nature. I definitely did get the inspiration from real life though.

  4. Wow, using all the words in one sentence! Take 2 was great, though.

    1. Take 1 came to mind instantly. Take 2 took some thought. Thank you so much!

  5. Absolutely loved the way you used the words - both ways. Thank you! It wasn't what I had in mind so better YET! :)

    1. I am so grateful you approve!!! Thank you so so much!!! The words brought my brain to life instantly!!! Great words!!! <3

  6. Oh Jules this is powerful. Definitely would like to see you expand on this.

Rainbow Colored Glasses #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to March's Blog with Friends Round-up. Each month, a group of bloggers chooses a topic, and then creates blog posts based on that theme. The posts can include anything, from poetry and recipes, to short stories and informative essays, and often crafts or DIY projects. This month's chosen theme is rainbows.

I decided to do a round-up of awesome rainbow finds, that are reasonably priced, and an easy way for your to add more rainbows into your life. I personally love rainbows, and actually enjoy adding them into my life whenever possible. I especially like adding them into Gigi's wardrobe. My inspiration for the title of this post, were a pair of glasses I bought her. Rose colored glasses are cool, but rainbow colored is such a better view! Unless of course you love black, and then I am sorry.

I will be posting links to where you can find the items to buy. However, I encourage you to shop around, and see if you are able to find any better deals. I also want you to know,…

Weather Outside is Frightful #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to February's Blog With Friends round-up!! I have had so much fun joining in, that I decided to tag along for February as well. In case you do not know how it works... A group of bloggers chooses a theme for the month, and then we all create unique posts, based on the same theme. Then we link up together, and provide y'all with a round-up!! The posts can contain anything... Recipes, poetry, short stories, a crafting how to, a DIY how to, and everything in between!! Each month is unique and fun!!

Our theme for February is Winter Activities!! You may be thinking... You are in California, what could you possibly have to contribute about winter activities!? Well, you would be right. LOL. However, I have not lived here my entire life. Plus, I have the unique "joy" of being sensitive to colder temperatures. So, I do have some ideas I want to share, for winter activities that can be done inside, when the weather outside is just too frightful (or in my case too chilly…

Duke #FunnyFriday

Welcome to this month’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write five captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture.

Here’s today’s picture. It was submitted by Minette of Southern Belle Charm.

1. Duke: Just five more minutes!
2. Duke: You want me to walk further?! That will cost you a Milk bone.
3. Duke: Mommmm, whyyyyyyy?! Can we just stop walking now?! Do we really need to walk more?! I mean, we have to be a solid ten feet from the porch. That is enough walking right?!
4. Duke: If you insist on bringing me to the vet, you will have to carry me. I will not aid in this. The last time you took me there, well, we just won't discuss that.
5. Duke: Must take a quick nap. That Thanksgiving feast wore me out. So. Much. Chewing.
