Let it Snow Dec 2016 #FunnyFriday

Today’s post is this 2016’s final Funny Friday. Funny Friday is 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 all participating bloggers 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.

1. All these clothes... Snow better be worth it!


2. Go outside in the snow, they said. It will be fun, they said.


3. I envision her bundling up every day, and waiting by the window for the first snowfall, and being sad about the unusually warm weather.


4. Getting bundled up was so tiring. Just a quick nap, and then I will be ready for all things fun in the snow!!


5. If I get told we will go out in the snow in five more minutes, one more time, I will scream! Why am I the only one who appreciates the wonderfulness of snow!?!

My first thought was A Christmas Story!! Anyone else?!

This will most likely be my last blog post of 2016. I highly doubt I will be able to write another before Sunday. That being said, please know... We are once again teaming up with Karen of Baking in a Tornado, for another Progressive Story project!! Which I am excited about, and will be writing my part this weekend!! 

Now, 2016... What a tough year. I think for so many people, not just myself, this was a year of struggles and loss. It also had some happy moments, and for those I am grateful. Unfortunately, I feel like I watched huge chunks of my childhood die. People who helped entertain and teach and inspire me, during my youth, have all moved on to Heaven/the afterlife. I have even suffered some personal losses. It was just a hard year.

It was a year that has rocked my very foundation, and shattered some of the things I believed about this world and country. I am determined to go into 2017 with a positive outlook, and a positive hope for the future. I refuse to let the negativity of 2016 taint 2017. With any luck, 2017 will be a much better year for us all.

I want to thank each and every one of you for your support over this past year. For reading my blogs and interacting with me on my Facebook page. My hope is to make my blog better in 2017. I had started the process months ago, but 2016 got in the way. I hope to finish what I started in 2017, and create a better blog, with better content for your reading enjoyment. I want to put more of myself into this blog, and just make it better overall. 

I hope to continue interacting with y'all in 2017, and hopefully you will enjoy my posts throughout the upcoming year!! May you all have a blessed, prosperous, and joyful 2017!! May we all travel unscathed through the months of 2017, and enter into the following year better and wiser, for having lived through 2017!!

Mother Earth #UseYourWords

Welcome to July's Use Your Words post! 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: bat ~ environment ~ foreshadow ~ lonesome ~ oddly They were submitted by: http://theblogging911.com/blog
I am typing this on my new Chromebook. I got it dirt cheap on Amazon Prime Day. I am not trying to brag, but I am a fast typist, and make very few typos. However, In just these last few lines, I have made about a million typos. Change may be nice, but sometimes it takes a bit to get used to. Oy. So, please bear with me. Oddly, despite not liking change and fighting it as much as possible, I am actually excited about this change. Ho…

I kinda hate you though. I had two solid plans for this month's words (I NEVER have plans, and this month I had TWO plans), and neither could be applied to these words, so I had to strugggggllllleeeeee..... It's okay, after reconsidering our friendship, I decided I still love you!)
So, I read this month's words, and I immediately transported back t…

Best Served Cold #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to June's Secret Subject Swap. This week eleven 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.


My “Secret Subject” is: Tell us a revenge story, truth or fiction. It was submitted by: Jenniy ofhttp://climaxedtheblog.blogspot.com (Thank you for such an awesome topic!!)

Revenge is a dish best served cold. That is how it goes, right? They also say revenge is sweet. Cold and sweet. Sounds like sorbet or ice cream. Sounds yummy and sticky. When I read this prompt, I immediately thought of one story. It is really all I ever think of, when I think of revenge. 

This really isn't my story to tell, but I know my friend won't mind me telling y'all, because I have asked permission many times over the years, and she always tells me I can. The she I am talking about, is my friend Opie. She is this amazing woman, who is one of m…
