“Z”odiac

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 …

“Yawnnnnnn”

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

Well, not really wrapping it up when we still have X, Y, Z to go. More like summing it up so far. First, let me say I am very sorry I missed “V” yesterday. The only word I could think of was vain and that led to “You’re so vain” by Carol King, which led to …

“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 …

It was just a “Pin”

When I was in elementary school, maybe fourth grade, a girl I knew came to school one day on crutches and had her foot all bandaged up. And when I asked her what had happened, she had said that she had stepped on a pin and had to have surgery to remove it. Now sometimes …

“O” is for Ozzy! A to Z Challenge

I’m not the type of person who fawns over celebrities. Never have been and probably never will be, but… When I was little I had a crush on Bob Hope. Yeah, I know, strange person to have a crush on, but do you want to know what is even stranger? I used to tell people …

Nothing, Nada, Nil

Nothing. Nada. Nil. No words. No sentences. No structure. No story.  The characters are having amazing dialogue. The scenes are set and the story is all coming together and yet… For some reason I just can’t seem to get it written. Everything is coming together nicely, but only in my head. Ever have that problem? …
