A Football Haiku

This assignment is all about word count, so here’s my very first attempt at a Haiku. It’s Championship Sunday in the NFL, so.. Let’s bring it home, Vikes. Time to make history with A game-winning play. Written for WordPress’s Finding Everyday Inspiration course. Day 13: Play with Word Count Advertisements

The Post: A brief review

Last night we made an impromptu decision to go out and see The Post, the new Spielberg movie starring Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks. If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s definitely worth the price of admission. Go ahead and spring for some popcorn, too. You might finish it before the movie actually start if…

A well-worn seat

If I’m working on Morning Pages, I’m most likely sitting in the living room in my favorite spot: the corner seat on the couch, next to the side table and lamp. If I’m working on my Bullet Journal, ditto. Blog posts, same. Designing a Canva graphic or poster for The Adaptations, again, that’s where you’ll…

However, if you’ve been reading my blog this year, you might understand why I chose this picture for the 2017 Favorites photo challenge. I…

Thanksgiving Ramblings

Last night as I brushed my teeth and prepared to go to bed, I had some ideas for a blog post, possibly a Thanksgiving-themed post. I even had a few lines drafted in my head. Rather than going to the laptop or putting those thoughts down somewhere, however, I crawled into bed hoping I would…

My Name or Yours?

About this time seven years ago, my divorce with my first husband became final. It was over a year in the making and was quite often difficult and contentious, as most divorces are I suppose. About half-way through the process, my husband demanded I “give him his name back”. Being a stubborn Taurus woman, as…
