Philadelphia
Published on Friday, January 6, 2017 by Every Friday during this blog challenge we will be given a topic, but have to turn that topic in to a story that will be continued on the following Friday.  By the end of the month we will have a full story stitched together from each Friday.  Today the topic is, "Philadelphia." It was Philadelphia, so she HAD to have a cheesesteak... right?  Perhaps she shoul...
I Found a Ball
Published on Thursday, January 5, 2017 by Today's blog writing challenge theme is "I found a ball." I found a ball. And I dropped it. Today, that is... with this challenge. Because my "cardiac arrest and open heart surgery" child called me and while talking, tripped and fell on his foot. "Mom, I think I broke my toe." After sitting for three hours at Patient First, I am finally home with him. And I am exhau...
Photograph
Published on Wednesday, January 4, 2017 by This is day three of the 20 Days of Chill Writing challenge.  Today we have been asked to use the topic, "Photograph." I have always been drawn to the power of a photograph.  With only the push of a button, a moment is captured that can last beyond a lifetime. There are pictures I have that move me every time I glance at them.  The photo taken of my father and me...

Am I Really Going To Do This?
Published on Monday, January 2, 2017 by 20 days of writing.  Well, I will certainly try!  I am going to participate in the 'lil Hoohaa blog writing challenge and will do my best to write most days.  With everything going on in my life I will give myself a pass or two, but for the most part I will be all in. Today's topic is "Explain Your Blog."  I started this blog many years ago, well before Faceboo...
One
Published on Friday, January 30, 2015 by Today is the final day of the writing challenge, with the subject "And then there was one."  I can't tell you where this little piece came from.  Do I blame it on the 20 subjects I had to write about?  Or do I blame it on the Taco Bell taco I ate after my workout tonight.  Let's go with the taco. “Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.” He tossed a handful of brown...
Blue Crabs, Fried or Steamed
Published on Thursday, January 29, 2015 by Today's blog writing challenge is, "Steamed." Blue crabs. Steamed. MMMmmmmmmmm. You would think that I enjoy blue crabs quite often, living in Hampton Roads and being surrounded by water. Sadly, this is a tourist area, as is Corolla. The minute the season hits the prices for blue crabs skyrocket. We live across the street from tidal waters that are filled with bl...
I Wish Daddy Didn’t Drink So Much!
Published on Wednesday, January 28, 2015 by Today’s blog writing challenge subject is, “Imagine That.” When I saw today’s writing subject I was immediately brought back to a wonderful time in my past. I used to sit with my young kids on their beds and read bedtime stories every night. I recalled instantly that one of these books had the phrase, “Imagine That” throughout the entire story. But I cou...

It’s really funny… his daughter is older than me.  We can share outfits!” “Please pass the potatoes.” “You wouldn’t believe how much better I feel after that series of colonic cleanses.” “Oh those rolls look ...
Ten Years Ago
Published on Monday, January 26, 2015 by Today’s blog challenge topic is, “10 years ago, I was probably ____.” Ten years ago, I was probably thinking I had wrinkles on my face. To me ten years ago I say, “Oh, just you wait.” Ten years ago, I was probably spending far too much time straightening the top of my hair. To me ten years ago I say, “OH MY GOSH JUST STOP IT AND LET IT GO CURLY ALL OVE...
A Frosty and Fries
Published on Friday, January 23, 2015 by Frosty is today's writing challenge subject. I don’t go to Wendy’s a lot, especially considering I am off gluten and can’t eat salads. But during the summer we would often stop on the way to Corolla. I have a confession to make. I dip hot Wendy’s French Fries in my chocolate frosty. And I won’t apologize for it. Am I the only one who loves the greasy s...
