I’ve written three different Mother’s Day blogs over the years. It’s been a busy week so the thought of re-posting one of them crossed my mind.  But, the overwhelming need to write something new took over instead.

I have something to say! And it may come as somewhat of a shocker to those of you who don’t know. Continue reading “Happy Mother’s Day 2020!”

Reblog – Times a Wastin

Does anyone else sit around staring at their phone rather than doing the things they really enjoy? Or watching Netflix and focusing on what the characters say, do or live through? Often times thoughts and ideas pass through my mind without ever getting out. I don’t write, speak or draw anything for days on end. Its people watching to the extreme extent, very zombielike!

So, You Cancelled That Appointment. Now What?

When there’s something you have to do but you just don’t want to do it, what do you do? I used to procrastinate my way through it but, then I realized that it’s much better to get it over with. Rip that bandaid off as quickly as possible instead of taking the approach I always take with bandaids. There are so many things that as adults we just do. We don’t like them so we get it over with and move on quickly. Continue reading “So, You Cancelled That Appointment. Now What?”

And, Silence…

Can I tell you guys a secret? Try not to judge me for this but, I haven’t been reading lately. It just hasn’t been as easy to escape in a book as it used to be. Let’s chalk it up to an inability to focus.

What To Do Now?

Until the weather gets a bit nicer, there’s plenty to do indoors. Like baking, cooking, cleaning, and organizing. Loads of fun in short or long stints but, when you really want to relax and forget the world you might need more. I’ve compiled a list of things to do both offline or online. I don’t know about you guys but I need a break from being online sometimes so, let’s start with that. Continue reading “What To Do Now?”

What Colours Suit Your Personality?

In the interest of getting away from listening or watching the news, I thought it would be cool to pass along a short quiz just to pass a little bit of time. You know, take our minds off the goings-on. Since guess what, they will go on whether or not we watch. Continue reading “What Colours Suit Your Personality?”

The Story Behind That Photo

Fact: Dr. Seuss’s real name was Theodore Seuss Geisel? I posted that quote a while back and it still resonates with me because my mom loves to take photos. When people think of albums full of photos they have no idea what that really looks like. Continue reading “The Story Behind That Photo”

Going back to work after vacation has always been a painful experience. No matter where I’ve worked. It’s relaxing being off and away from the daily grind. Life was sweet! you ate what you wanted when you wanted. You got some rest and did whatever you wanted to do.

What is a Phobia?

What is a Phobia Photo by Lennart Wittstock on Pexels.com

Phobias, some people have so many of them and some people don’t seem to have any. A phobia is a group of anxiety symptoms that occur when a person comes across certain objects or situations. I cruised the internet and found a few phobias, some of them are more common than others. If reading this triggers anyone my apologies. My intention is to open a line of discussion.

Can You Picture Where I Write?

With 2020 around the corner this is the perfect time for us to take a closer look at our writing spaces. In doing so I figured why not do a Truth versus Lie short post. There are only 5 choices in this one. I can’t wait to see what you choose. Continue reading “Can You Picture Where I Write?”

Meet Me Here

While doing the dishes this morning and gazing out the window I saw five people walking together. Four of them were wearing pink coats and black pants but there was a man in the group wearing a blue coat with black pants. The four women crossed the street leaving the man on the opposite side of the street. Was he bothering them in some way? I must have been wrong, there was no way he was part of the group!

1 Trend That’ll Change Your Grocery Shopping Game

1 Trend That’ll Change Your Grocery Shopping Game Photo by Artem Beliaikin on Pexels.com

Since the missing produce bag incident, I decided to go back to doing my grocery shopping. Every Saturday, I would get up and go. While entering the grocery store I was usually happy or excited about picking up the things I needed for the coming week. But then I’d get to the cereal aisle. Why is there always a screaming child on the floor in this aisle? Continue reading “1 Trend That’ll Change Your Grocery Shopping Game”

Happy Today! Drive In Movie

I Went to a drive-in movie for the first time. What an experience! At first, I didn’t want to see Christopher Robin. But it ended up really speaking to me. The part that I can’t get out of my mind was when Winnie the Pooh asked Christopher Robin, “What day is it today?” and Christopher Robin responded… “It’s today.” And Pooh replied “my favorite day!” Continue reading “Happy Today!”

Are You Into Horror?

@groot_molly asked the Twitter community, “Am I the only one who doesn’t do horror?” In answer to her question, I am not the greatest fan of horror movies or shows myself. But, there are a few I’ve been able to get through. Yet overall, I can tell you, it’s very rare that the words “I feel like watching a horror movie” come out of my mouth.

National Mulligan Day

Thursday that just passed was October the 17th. For those who don’t know it was National Mulligan Day. Or, ”Do-Over Day” as some call it.

A few days came to mind that I would’ve liked to re-do. But, this one day in particular, kept running through my mind after I was reminded of Mulligan day.

Alone on Wednesday

It’s a sunny Wednesday. I’m in the middle of the big city. Out for a day of exploring. While I look around and take everything in, literally everyone is busy looking at their phones. So what, I’m out here alone? I literally feel like I am out here alone…yet I’m around so many people. Continue reading “Alone on Wednesday”

Radical Acceptance

Have you heard of radical acceptance? I’ve been trying it out for a while now. What a great concept. Basically, it’s accepting the things that you have no control over without resistance. For example; going to the store and your favourite hash browns are not in stock for weeks at a time. You can:

a) Be angry, and throw yourself fitfully on the floor in the frozen food aisle like I may have done so once or twice very, very long ago. Continue reading “Radical Acceptance”

Time Travel

I love music. Music makes time travel possible! My favorite radio stations are the ones that play songs from the 80’s. They take me back in time and sometimes it’s difficult to back to the present. The memories are just too funny or in some instances too painful! Continue reading “Time Travel”
