A Review of “A to Z, 10 by 10”

I have had “A to Z, 10 by 10”  in my e-reader for quite a while now and finally had the chance to read it. Donna wrote this book when she was doing the A to Z challenge a couple of years ago. Each flash fiction story pertains to a letter of the alphabet. But …

015 - Copy

Well, “Z” is the last letter for the AtoZ Challenge. I asked Jarrod for a word for “Z” and he gave me a few and then he said Zodiac and I said, “That’s perfect for me! Since I’m such a horoscope junkie.” First off, I am an Aquarius in astrology. A “1” in numerology. And …

It’s 5:30 in the morning and I’m tired. Why am I up you ask? It’s this darn insomnia. Not mine! My dogs! This is Mitzy. I got her when she was 8 weeks old back in October 2003.   This is Duggy. I took him in, in 2010 and I’m guessing he was just under …

“X” is for Xavier

I had a great weekend. My son and his roommate came up from San Diego to visit on Saturday. We went out to lunch and then I got to visit with my granddogs for a little while. 🙂 Sandi is the pit bull and Sketch has the curly tail. Duggy, the feisty one, is mine and …

Wrapping it up with Words

Back in February I stopped by my sister’s house for her birthday and I asked her what did she do with her couch. She told me it was out in her garage, so I asked her what she was going to do with it and she said she’d probably just get rid of it. So …

“T” is for Tortoise


This is Boxer.   He is a desert tortoise. He has been a part of the family for 29 years now. Did you know that tortoises make great pets? They do! And they are intelligent as well. Well, Boxer is at least. I can’t speak for all tortoises. 🙂 He knows his name and when …

See Me Through My Eyes

I was staring at my reflection in the mirror the other day and I saw some wrinkles, thin lips, and a not so perfect nose, but then I looked into my big blue eyes. “You’re beautiful.” I said and smiled. See me through my eyes and you will see that I am kind, caring, and compassionate. …

“R” is for Radishes!

I was going to post a review today, but got sidetracked, so I decided to share a few pictures about one of the easiest to grow vegetables. Radishes are high in fiber as well as vitamin C,  phosphorus and zinc. Who knew you could pack so much good into such a small package. They are crunchy, have …

Quiet Time; A time of solitude. A time to be alone with your thoughts  or to be at one with nature. How do you spend your quiet time? I spent some time in the backyard today. It’s a great place to hear my thoughts and also all the peace and quiet the world has to …
