Geyser Jan 2017 #FunnyFriday

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 Dawn of Spatulas on Parade

1. Passenger to driver: Maybe next time you should call the firemen, rather than taking things into your own hands.
Driver: I used my truck not my hands.

2. Supervisor: When I sent you to check out and test the functionality of the hydrant, this is not what I had in mind. Repairman: Well, I wanted to make sure it could withstand anything that could come at it. You never know, a truck might have come right at it one day.

3. Passenger: What are you going to tell your wife? Driver: Some alterna…

Return to Me Jan 2017 #UseYourWords

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’s 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: discombobulated ~ family ~ return ~ without ~ race They were submitted by: http://Bakinginatornado.com (Thanks, Karen, for the words!! I will do them justice in my Stable Layne post, promise!!)
So, for the past few months, I have been writing a story for you all, one post at a time, using my Use Your Words words. I have bad news and good news. I am a firm believer in family first, especially my Gigi. I have actually started a Use Your Words post, with it being an installment of the Stable Layne series. Unfortunately, Gigi is sick today. Her …

Begin Again Jan 2017 #PoetryCollaboration

Every month, my fellow bloggers and I choose a theme and write poems based on the theme. If you have followed my blog for a while now, you will have seen that I have participated in these month poetry collaborations several times. I am back again this month, adding my own addition to our collaboration. This month's theme is "Beginnings". Be sure to check out the links at the bottom, and see what poems my fellow bloggers have contributed.



Without further ado... 

Poem 1 (Begin Again):

I think back to our beginning.
It was so simple and easy.
Me in the DJ booth.
You flipping pages in your notebook.
Not sure how I knew, but I did.
I knew you would be special.
I wish we could begin again.
Go back to the simplicity of our beginning.
Go back to the days when we really connected.
Back to the days before it got hectic.
Back to the days before things became hated.
Back to when we were all hearts and flowers.
I wish we could begin again.
I wish you looked at me the way you used to.
I wish you treat…

The Game of Life Jan 2017 #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to a the first Secret Subject Swap of 2017. This week twelve brave bloggers submitted a secret subject for someone else to use, and were assigned a secret subject prompt of their own. Each blogger gets to use their Secret Subject prompt, to write any blog of their choice. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.




My “Secret Subject” is: Video games give a chance to escape sort of like reading a book or watching a movie but you, the player, is in control of the story or the actions needed to complete it. As technology advances so have games giving people vast open worlds to play in and characters who are more and more customizability. If you could turn any book, TV show, or movie world into a game what would it be? Lead us on an exploration of what it might be like playing this game (feel free to make up your own world if books, TV, or movies fail to give you a suitable choice).

Eight by K.S. Thomas #BookReview

Okay, so today's book review is a bit special for me. I know we should not have favorites, as far as people go, but K.S. Thomas is definitely a favorite of mine. I try really hard to not be biased, and I think I am successful. If she wrote a horrible book, I would tell her. Lucky for me, she has yet to write a horrible book. Far from it. Her books are my favorites. I love every single one of them. I fell so in love with her writing, that I found every book of hers that I could, and read them all. Some I have read more than once. 
Her latest release, Eight from the pINK series, is no exception to the excellent writing she has done. I absolutely loved it. Now, you can totally read this book all by itself, and you would be happy, but I urge you to read the entire series. Every book, every novelette. READ THEM! I promise you, you will thank me!! 
In Eight, we learn the story about Memphis and Riot. We learn the reasoning behind Riot's disappearance, and we are given the fill in for …

Divine Desire by Audrey Carlan #BookReview

Hello, Y'all!! If you have followed my blog for any length of time, or follow my Facebook page, you have probably figured out that I love to read. Reading, coffee, and Gigi- my three greatest loves. One of the things I want to do, whenever the opportunity presents itself, is to tell you guys about books I have read. You may remember me telling you about Sacred Serenity by Audrey Carlan, back in September. If you don't, you can read about it here.
Well, I just recently read the follow-up to Sacred Serenity, and I am here to tell you about it. Much like Sacred Serenity, I absolutely loved Divine Desire. Divine Desire is the third book in the Lotus House Series, by Audrey Carlan. I highly recommend you read all three, but you should know, I feel you can absolutely read this book, without reading the previous two, and still understand and enjoy it. 
Audrey is a fabulous writer, and an amazing storyteller. In this book, she gives you the complete story, while giving you glimpses at t…
