Write Anything Wednesday

So I guess that means exactly what it says, “Write Anything Wednesday.”  So that is what I am going to do.  Some days I get up and I think, “What am I going to do all day?” and then there are those days that B A M/B O O M   BUS just comes cruising along and I don’t know where to start.  So today being hump day (typically a good day, it’s not Monday ewww and it doesn’t get a great as in TGIFriday) so it’s just kind of a good day.  I do have a lot going on though so that is why I look to my planner.  It will keep me focused and  on task.  Isn’t my planner beautius ❤

So today I’ll be out and about.  I think I’m going to make it my Artist Date too.  What is an Artist Date you ask ???  That is a day I go to my creative side and just do something, anything I want to. So as long as I am out and about, I’m going to treat myself to lunch and Target.  I haven’t had a Target date in so long and I really need to restock.  I’m getting the nails done today and I’m almost tempted to get a mani/pedi but I think I’ll leave the pedi for next week.  Still kind of chilly for sandals.  

The dogs are getting a bath, OMG they can’t even stand themselves.  Bella’s nails are really clicking so I’m sure her feet will feel much better.  Mr. Louie will have the run of the house so he’ll be glad.  But he probably will get  lonely because when I go in my room to get ready for the day and the dogs are taking their naps, he sits up right next to the door waiting for his friends.  Pretty sure that everyone will be in my room soon.

So I did write anything on Wednesday.  Oh really come back soon.  I am putting up our website probably on Friday and you’ll be able to see all of the husband’s really cool artwork.  I am going to be really busy on our store site, but I will give you the link when it is up.  Blessings Blogger’s, Love ya ❤ …

Share Your World/Week 11

How many siblings do you have? What’s your birth order?  I am the youngest of 4 girls, grrrrr.  Sorry, I’m still not sure if that was a good thing or not…

In a car would you rather drive or be a passenger?  Well unless the husband is driving, I definitely would rather be the driver unless of course it is on an expressway…I have driven on them, but I’m not crazy about driving on city expressways.  

When you lose electricity in a storm, do you light the candles or turn on the flashlight? How many of each do you own?  I’m thinking I first get the flashlight of which I own 1 and then I light candles. 

List at least five of your favorite types of animals? (any animal to domestic to wild to marine life)  I’m going to start with dogs.  Love, love, love any kind of dogs ❤  Such a loyal animal.  Next it’s the kitty’s.  Love, love, love their little noses.  My kitty, Mr. Louie is so sweet too ❤  Always by me, under my chair or just hanging around his friends, the girl’s Bella (Chicago Brown Dog) and Miss Elsa (my little old lady, Cairin Terrior mix, think Toto Wizard of Oz) I just had to put a picture of them up ❤  I think I need a bigger bed 😉

 Cows, something so gentle about them.  Horses too, that same demeanor .  My last choice would have to be Birds.  Some are so grand as they soar in the sky above us.  Some having a very impressive wing span, or some who just have that attitude like the Canadian Geese.  

I’m still trying to get caught up with this challenge, I think I’m almost there.  It’s really very thought provoking ❤  Blessings for another week…

 

FACTS

I am just going to put up Webster’s definition just in case, I’ll repeat myself again, just in case someone out there does not know the meaning of this word.  I’m pretty sure that everyone does, but you never know then do you ;).

FACT:   Something that truly exists or happens : something that has actual existence

So I’ll give you an example, just in case you don’t get the written definition…The Sun rises in the East and sets in the West every 24 hour cycle that makes up a day.  The earth is round. So now that we are on the same page, I will start my post on, “FACTS.”

One of the reasons that I started this blog is that I wanted to start writing and re-inventing myself.  I have gone through many changes over the last 2 years or a little less than that.  I don’t want to be accused of misrepresenting some of the FACTS on my blog.  This blog is my happy place.  I really just love to come here to write, read in the reader, talk with some of my blogging buddies, yadayadayada…

Time can be your friend or it can be your enemy.  Time heals all wounds or wounds all heals (that’s what the husband likes to say 😉 )  Over time I have found that perceptions change, but the FACTS always remain the same.  This is why I write.  I have been keeping a journal, a 10 year journal to be exact and have been recording my life with the, “FACTS OF THE DAY,” that I have coined them.  I also have pictures.  Many, many pictures that show my life.  As they say, “A picture is worth a thousand words !!!”   Then in another place I keep actual documents that I have been accumulating that also speaks to the FACTS of my life !!! 

I like to record history as anyone who knows me, that is what I do.  I think you have to preserve history and learn from it.  If you don’t learn from the past, what is that they say “You’ll be forced to repeat it,” I think is how the quote goes.  Well I choose to remember the past in a factual way so I have kept EVERYTHING from my past i.e. newspapers, LETTERS, pictures, DOCUMENTS, anything that has been important in shaping my life into how it looks now.  It is all archived by date, so it is very easy to go back and look at the events that have shaped my life.  I always wanted to be an archiver, just say’n.

Newspapers from 9/11, articles about me/my family. LETTERS from my kids, LETTERS from disgruntled girlfriend’s of a certain son.  Pictures of a 4o year + lifetime, oh and then DOCUMENTS, i.e. marriage licenses, birth certificates, law suits (yes that’s right law suits, a story for another day) oh yeah and then there’s another legal DOCUMENT not really sure what this one would be framed as but I have it and it’s all the proof I’ll need, if I ever need proof.  I won’t be lied about !!!

So this is a quote that really says it all for me

People sometimes take your kindness for a weakness and that is their misfortune.  So really this blog is for all those who troll it.  It is for the people who don’t have the courage to look me in the eye and take responsibility for what they have done to me and my family.  That’s okay because what goes around, comes around and it will ❤  Blessings ❤

Oh and I’m going to be changing up the blog a little bit, just to give it a different look.  A new widget here, a new color there.  So make sure you come back and check it out, that goes for you trolls too.  Do you really think I don’t know you are out there reading my blog.  Like I said, mistaking my kindness for a weakness, definitely your first mistake and a big one !!!!    

 

Share Your World/Week 9

Have you done something you truly want to do today?  Yes I did, I finally started organizing all of my planner supplies…This is a very good thing that I have wanted to do for a very long, long time <3.  It makes the planning go better and it not so stressful which planning should never be, stressful that is 😉 …

What can you help the world with?  I really think that is just a monumental task for any one person to help the world.  One way I feel that I have helped the world is I think I have put out 4 very good children/adults to impact the society.  One is a nurse and the other’s are artist which bring beauty to the world and that is always a good thing.  The next thing that I think I can do, and I do quite often is pray for the world.  Especially for all the babies and the mothers that are victims to scourge of our society, Abortion.  I pray for them both, because they are both victims.

If life was ‘just a bowl of cherries’… which fruit other than a cherry would you be..?   If I were another fruit it definitely would be an apple !!! An Apple a day, hello 😉 …

Quotes List: At least three of your favorite quotes?  

  1. “Being a part of a family means you are a part of something very wonderful.  It means you will be loved for the rest of your life, no matter what !!!”
  2. “Remember me with smiles and laughter because that is how I will remember you all.  If all you can remember me is with tears and sorrow, then don’t remember me at all.”  
  3. Should I use my invisibility to do good or fight crime?”

Bonus Quote…“For 30 years mom served leftovers, no one has ever found the original meal…”  Blessings 😉 …

 

Everyday Inspiration, Day Two: Write a List‏

#RevofKindness

I love, love, love making lists.  It’s fun and keeps me focused on what I’m suppose to be doing.  I love crossing out what I’ve got and then starting a new list…So for today I think I’ll make a list of 5 things I’m good at 😉

  1. I am a great wife, homemaker.  I have been married to the love of life for 37 years this year, so I must be doing something right.  Every home I have ever lived in, I have given it just that special feeling that only someone who really loves her family can do.  It has never been just a house to me (Rent or Own) I make it our home ❤ …
  2. I am a really great mom.  No one on the face of this earth will ever love MY children the way I have.  Total and unconditional love !!!  That’s not to say…

Everyday Inspiration, Day Two: Write a List‏

I am also doing a challenge #RevofKindness.  I thought this would be a good way to start out my week of kindness to myself.  It’s a good list and I had a great start to my weekend.

 I love, love, love making lists.  It’s fun and keeps me focused on what I’m suppose to be doing.  I love crossing out what I’ve got and then starting a new list…So for today I think I’ll make a list of 5 things I’m good at 😉

  1. I am a great wife, homemaker.  I have been married to the love of life for 37 years this year, so I must be doing something right.  Every home I have ever lived in, I have given it just that special feeling that only someone who really loves her family can do.  It has never been just a house to me (Rent or Own) I make it our home ❤ …
  2. I am a really great mom.  No one on the face of this earth will ever love MY children the way I have.  Total and unconditional love !!!  That’s not to say that I have never made a mistake at being a mom.  Unfortunately motherhood does not come with a handbook.  For me it comes from my heart and soul.  
  3. I am also a really, really good cook.  Cooking is pretty close to a religion for me.  I can’t just throw anything together, I cook with love.  You could always tell when I didn’t (I said I’m not perfect).  It’s in the DNA.  My little Italian grandmama and mom taught me about cooking and baking.  I love it all.  They were farmer’s and pretty much everything they made, they did from scratch.  Grandmama grew her own vegetables, then canned everything for the winter. She was amazing !!!
  4. I also am very talented.  I can play the piano and I can sing.  I always loved the arts and you can tell by my kids.  I have two who are professional ballet dancer’s.  They all can play the piano.  That’s in our DNA too.  
  5. I am a really great friend.  I always have a shoulder to cry on or an ear to just listen.  I will tell you what I think if you ask and I’ll be honest with you.  I will always have your back and if we have a fight (people who love each other do fight) I will fight for our relationship.  I know how to say I’m sorry.  So important in a friendship ❤ …

I thought at first this would be hard to do, but it really wasn’t.  I picked the topic of things I’m good at because I want today to be a great day and remembering who I am and what I’m good at is a great way to start out, don’t you think ??  Blessings ❤ … 

 

Everyday Inspiration, Day One: I Write Because…‏

I write because I am a writer and I have a story to tell.  I want to get better and the only way that will happen is if I practice, practice and oh did I mention practice.  I have been reading a lot of great blogs and see all different kind of writing styles.  I want to do that.  I am learning much about writing.  I am also taking a course (outside of blogging, yes I know I do more than blog) called, “The Artist Way.”  Julia Cameron wrote the book and I would totally recommend it for all artist out there i.e. Painters, Writers, Dancers, well you get my meaning.

I’ve heard to be a good/great writer you really need to read.  I get that now.  I am still trying to find my voice.  Writing this blog has been a journey and it has been a really positive experience.  I am looking forward to my future and my first published piece of writing.  That will happen, because I wrote it down and it will happen.  I hope you will follow my blog and help me to stay focused and on task.  Good luck, fellow writers.  Blessing ❤ …
