Summer's End #PoetryCollaboration

Welcome to this month's poetry collaboration! Last month, we chose the theme 'Wacky and Weird'. This month, we chose the theme 'Back to school'. Hopefully, you enjoy my contribution! Don't forget to check out all the other contributions, using the links at the end of my post!

Poem 1 (School):

Stressing out.
Chemistry, Calculus, Computer Science, Choir.
Hitting the books nightly.
Outstanding performance during gym.
Ogling your crush from afar.
Learning all you can.

Poem 2 (First Day):

It's the day I have been dreading since you were born.
Your first day of school.
The first day, of me leaving you, and you not needing me as much.
The day your independence truly begins.
You will learn so many things.
Your brain will be filled with knowledge.
Your future will start to form.
Your teachers and your friends will become important figures in your life.
I will no longer be the most  important person in your life.
Soon, I will no longer be your best friend.
You are full of excitment and I am full of worry.
I know this is great for both of us.
I just will take more time to adjust than you.
Don't get me wrong, I am very happy for you.
I am just a bit sad too.
I am so proud of you.
My little girl is now a student.
Soon, your nights will be full of studying, and less time to play with Mommy.
Soon, you will be graduating, and leaving home for college.
Soon, you will be a young woman.
So, for now, I will cling to you being little, as long as I can.
Just know, I will always love you, and I am always here for you.
If you need help with homework, or help studying for the big test, come to me.
If you need to vent about your friend not wanting to share toys with you, come to me.
If you need advice about boys, come to me.
If you need your mommy, just know I will always be here.
Long before you were a student, you were my baby.
No matter how grown and smart you become, you will always be my baby.
So, happy first day of school.
Happy first day of the rest of your life.

Now, go see what poetry these other blogging poets have for you:

Karen of Baking In A Tornado
Dawn of Spatulas On Parade
Diane of On The Border


  1. So bittersweet, those milestones. First day of school will be sad and wonderful, you captured both emotions so well.

  2. I remember the first day of school for each of my kids like it was yesterday, and it was a LONG time ago. It is bittersweet but such a joy to watch them grow and learn.

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.

New Year, Same Me. #BlogWithFriends

Welcome to January's Blog with Friends post! I once again decided to join in, and give it my best shot. How does it work? A group of bloggers select a topic, and create a blog post based on that topic, and then join their posts together in a round-up. This month, we are all creating posts based on the topic of resolutions. The posts can include any number of things, from crafts and recipes, to informative writing, to fictional writing, and anything in between.

How do you feel about resolutions? Do you make them? Do you keep them? Do you skip them? I tend to make some, and I tend to do a decent job at keeping some of them. I tend to take a more relaxed view on them, and shoot more for goals than resolutions. I also do not let myself stress over them. I feel if it becomes stressful, that defeats the purpose.

Well, for 2018, I have decided to take them a bit more seriously. I have put some thought into it, and come up with some things I really want to accomplish, improve, or change i…
