Clean Up on Aisle Stove #FunnyFriday November 2015

Today’s post is 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. Links to the other bloggers’ posts are below, click on them and see what they’ve come up with. I hope we bring a smile to your face as you start your weekend.

Here’s today’s picture. It was submitted by the fabulous Tamara of Confessions of a part-time working mom! Thank you for such an interesting picture! <3

1. Spaghetti leader to chef: We will not be forced to change! We will remain in our natural state, you will not eat us! C'mon y'all! Run! Do not give in to the softening powers of the water!
2. Wife to hubby: Does the spaghetti look like that when I cook? No. The point is to get the spaghetti IN the pot! Go watch TV, and let me finish this! Hubby to himself: Yes! I bet she will never ask for help …


My friends and I decided to all write poetry inspired by Thanksgiving. :) So, here is my contribution. I hope you enjoy it! 

Poem 1:
God has blessed me so much. Over the years I have had so much happiness. Blessings have been great. Burdens have been frequent, but bearable. Love has been abundant. Every day has been a blessing, even the bad ones.

Poem 2:
I find myself being thankful for you on a regular basis. Thankful for all the good times we had. Thankful for all the bad times as well. Those bad times taught me so much. They taught me about myself and about life. They made me the person I am today. You changed my life, you changed me. You taught me how to love. You taught me how to please and be pleased. You taught me how to survive losing love. You taught me how to move on. Loving you and losing you, it all made me a better person. I am so grateful you were a part of my history. You prepared me for my future. I always thought you would be a part of my future, but I have become okay with the fact you are …

Cookie Baker #UseYourWords November 2015

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked four to six 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 is the challenge, here is a fun twist; no one who is participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

My words are: seasons ~ euphemism ~ honor ~ century ~ rise They were submitted by: you for the inspirational words! :))

As I lay here watching your chest rise with each breath,
and my mind wanders to thoughts of last night,
when you chose to honor my body,
by giving me the best orgasm of the century.
I cannot help but wonder when you will wake,
and what will happen next.
Will you be gone again before I can properly say Good morning?
Will you stay around a while?
I never know how you will act,
what you will say,
or when I will …

Starring Jules #SecretSubjectSwap November 2015

Welcome to this month's Secret Subject Swap. This week fourteen brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.

Your “Secret Subject” is: If you could write yourself into a novel, television show, or film, what would we see you in? What character would you play? How would your presence change the story or would it? It was submitted by: you for the wonderful subject! I really had fun considering all the possible options!)

I once wrote about one of my favorite television shows, "The Good Wife", and I really enjoyed putting myself into the mindset of being a character. You can read about thathere.
I have sat and thought about this subject, and approached from a million different angles. Part of me wants to write myself into a Matt Damon movie, so I can be his best friend. Part of me wa…
