Speaking of Travel - On Poetry Friday ...




TRAVEL DAYS

Days seem a wee bit long
After you are packed and gone

Time is the one I seem to blame
Hearing some thunder and the rain

Waiting for that safe arrival call
Being my lifesaver, after all

Another sunny, cold, brisk day
Autumn always feels this way

Doing what we need to do
Hurrying back to me and you

Whimsical Wednesday & A Giveaway Winner!








Welcome to Whimsical Wednesday, yet again ~ Recently I have been doing a lot of writing and this is what it has felt like to me - The above paintbrush when I put pen to paper - A flurry of color and expression. I have been writing 750 Words a Day consecutively for 29 Days now. Recently, I have asked family and friends  what they think of the task of writing 750 Words A Day, their responses differed. Some said it was painful to think of getting so many words out each day. Others, said it would flow out of them, easily. I seem to be in the latter. I never have difficulty when I start writing, I always seem to know what the topic of the day will be, before I begin. I hope this continues ... I am grateful for these 15 minutes daily, to be - Me.

And the Giveaway Winner is ...
Karen in FL 


Congratulations, Karen!

Please email me @ kaortega1120@yahoo.com with your address! 


Thank you for all who entered ... 
I hope to have another giveaway real soon!

Welcome to Music Monday ...


Shania Twain ... So Successful  ... I have to be honest, I did not become a fan until she made her crossover to Pop music  ... The first songs that caught my attention from her "Come On Over" CD were "Man! I Feel Like A Woman", "That Don't Impress Me Much". I still enjoy these songs ... Her follow up CD "Up!" was another smash hit. The titles "I'm Gonna Get You Good" and  "She's Not Just a Pretty Face" are the two that stand out for me. I love her style, voice, beauty - What can I say - She will always be a favorite of mine!
