Blessings Overflowing Nov 2016 #PoetryCollaboration

This is our monthly Poetry collaboration. I will awaken in the morning. I will suck it up. I will write. For now, I'm too depressed. I just watched a man get elected, who terrifies me.

Our theme is blessings.

I will do it justice tomorrow. For now. . .


Poem 1:

My life has been full of blessings.
Blessings in the form of family I love.
Blessings in the form of friends I cherish.
Blessings in the form of children I adore.
I was blessed to receive an education.
I was blessed to be taught the love of God.
I was blessed to live in safety, nearly always.
I was blessed to have freedom of choice.
I want the same for my daughter.
I want the same for my daughter's children.
I'm scared. I'm worried. I'm nervous.
I fear the future.
I fear that the blessings will be gone.
I fear they'll be unavailable to my daughter.
We are supposed to pay our blessings forward.
I fear we've done the opposite.
I fear we took them for granted, and now they're gone.


Poem 2:

Boundless opportunities .
Limitless options.
Excellent choices.
Smiles unending.
Streets paved in gold.
Intellectual advancement.
Nurtured endlessly.
Grounded in success.
Strong bonds with loved ones.

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…
