Sydney, Australia
Published on Friday, January 27, 2017 by Oh my goodness.  This is actually the last day of the 'Lil Hoohaa blog writing challenge and I DID it!  Woooo hoooo!  Today is the final installment of the four part Friday story post.  As you can see from the title, the subject is "Sydney, Australia. Lisa was aware of noises around her but wasn't able to focus on anything but the horrible pain in her head.  S...
Popularity
Published on Thursday, January 26, 2017 by Today's blog challenge topic is, you guessed it.... Popularity. I was never the popular one.  I was the band geek.  The one who would never be skinny. The girl with the freckles.   The REDHEAD.  Back in the day, there were no beautiful gingers... there were just redheads. Had I been "popular," I would have become a different person from who I am today.  I am gl...
White,
Published on Wednesday, January 25, 2017 by Today's theme for  the Hoohaa writing challenge is, "White." To me, "white" is a happy word.  There are so many white things that make me feel good.  Whipped cream, snow, sand, breaking waves, milkshakes, the inside of cadbury eggs, pina coladas, cheese and white chocolate. The theme "white" also made me think of my mother and the cool factor you might not expect...
Dreams
Published on Tuesday, January 24, 2017 by The theme for today's writing challenge is "Dreams." Haiku of Dreams In public, pantless. Haven't studied for the test. Flying without wings.    ...
Cheese
Published on Monday, January 23, 2017 by When I saw today's writing challenge subject "Cheese," I immediately thought of blogger Nicky from We Work for Cheese.  Nicky was a lovely, vibrant and incredibly funny woman and mother who died far too young of cancer. Nicky loved cheese and wrote about it often.  She once wrote about Cotswold, an English pub cheese I had never heard of.  It took a few days of se...
The Next 10 Years …
Published on Thursday, January 19, 2017 by Our writing challenge continues with the topis, "The Next Ten Years." In the next ten years, I will probably get another tattoo. In the next ten years, I will be living somewhere else. In the next ten years, I just may see the possibility of a grandchild. In the next ten years, I will have an empty nest. In the next ten years, I plan to laugh a lot. In the n...
Fears
Published on Wednesday, January 18, 2017 by When I saw today's writing challenge theme "Fears," my mind went down a bad path.  Because there are deep and very dark fears I still face every day with my son and his health.  But then I remembered yesterday's theme, "Stress."  No stress here - not today.  Today we are going to discuss fear... and childhood.  And that isn't stressful at all, is it? When I wa...
This Is A Stress Free Zone!
Published on Tuesday, January 17, 2017 by Today's writing challenge topic  is "Stress."  We ALL could write SEVERAL books on THAT subject! I will never forget being in a hospital room with my son for a month.  You know... the whole cardiac arrest thing a year ago.  Many hours were spent gazing out the window.  No fresh air, no sun... just a hospital room 24/7. People were scurrying around during work...
San Francisco
Published on Friday, January 13, 2017 by Day ten of the 'lil Hoohaa writing challenge brings the topic, "San Francisco."  Being Friday, this is the challenge where I take this topic and add it to last Friday's post to continue a story.   Lisa woke to the thump of airplane wheels hitting the ground.  Her foggy brain began to register.... plane.... landing... cheese steak.... barf bag.... a man.... his ey...
Booze and Bongos
Published on Thursday, January 12, 2017 by Yes, today's writing challenge topic is "Booze and Bongos."  I wish I could have written a full story, but tonight is my daughter's very special birthday!  So I will share a bit of tonight that is actually quite on topic. When I got home from work I began to get some things ready for the party.  Little did I know that the party had started a little earlier in the ...
Blue
Published on Wednesday, January 11, 2017 by Today's blog writing challenge topic is my favorite color.  Blue! Broken bottle piece. Tumbled by the ocean waves.  Cobalt blue transformation....
