April 23, 2014 – The Distance


April 23, 2014  – Earworm.  What song is stuck in your head (or on permanent rotation in your CD or MP3 player) these days? Why does it speak to you?

I love the rhythm of the music. And the sad pathetic reminder that people in today’s society do not even know when the race begins let alone when it’s over.

Have a blessed day :-)


April 21, 2014 – Quiet Time


April 21, 2014  - Companionable. Head to one of your favorite blogs. Write a companion piece to their penultimate post.

First of all, I had to look up the word “penultimate” to find out that it meant next to the last.   Yeah, I know, I probably should not admit that, but I did.   Don’t act like you didn’t.

I chose to go to Arl’s World.   Her next to the last post was Quiet Time.      I have a park across from the house too, I love to wake up to the beauty of my back yard and enjoy the quiet time, even if it is for only 5 minutes.    I actually enjoy a nice glass of wine as the sun goes down too.

Have a blessed day :-)


April 20, 2014 – The Opposite Me?

thApril 20, 2014  - The bizarro world. In the DC comics universe, a planet called “Htrae” (“Earth” spelled backwards) is populated with bizarre versions of superheroes. A Seinfeld episode made the idea of this Bizarro World popular, where the characters encountered their opposite selves. Craft a scene in which you meet an opposite version of yourself — or a story in a bizarre, backwards world.

The opposite of me?  Backwards me?  Gosh, I confuse people enough as it is.

We would have to be in Antartica because everyone knows how much I adore the cold.   I would be cooking some lavish meal because I am a great chef.    My outfit would be one of the finest because of my love for shopping and my great sense of fashion.    I would have the biggest house with the newest furnishings because of my need to keep up with the Jones’.  And I would be complaining and bitching up a storm because of my controlling personality.  (What do you mean there may be some truth to this one?)

I knew there was a reason m Mom brought me to Texas from Michigan as soon as she possibly could.  I would be a completely different person had I been raised in a cold climate!

Have a blessed day :-)


April 19, 2014 – A Dog’s Life

20140101_121551April 19, 2014  - Freaky Friday. If you could be someone else for a day, who would you be, and why? If that seems too easy, try this one: who would you like to have spend a day as you and what do you hope they’d learn from the experience.

Truth be known I would love to have a dog’s life.   Not just any dog, but this one.  He is so damn spoiled it is ridiculous.   I want to lay around, eat and sleep.   I would love for people to rub my back and my stomach and scratch my head.    Maybe not for the rest of my life, but perhaps for the next week.   Yeah,  a week should do it.  I might even bark and whine to show my appreciation at the end.

Have a blessed day :-)


April 18, 2014 – Is this really you?


April 18, 2014  – Unknown caller.  You receive a call from an unexpected person. Who is it, and what is the conversation about? Go!

“Hi there, I was wondering if there are any pointers you can give me, or any suggestions you may have to help me lead a better life?”

“Who is this?”

“It’s me, Monique. I’m ten and I have the opportunity to live your life all over again. Only this time I get to talk to you about all of the things you know and what you would do differently!”

“Oh dear child, how much time do we have to chat?”

“Not long, so tell me three things that I should know about myself as I grow up”

“Well, I think you should know they have a product that you can put on your hair now so you won’t have to wear those curls forever!”

“People are not always what or who they appear to be. It is not your job to make others happy. Find happiness within yourself and others around you will be happy.”

“…and try to find God and make him a priority in your life now. Don’t wait until you are in your thirties. The earlier you trust God, the better your life will be.”

“Awesome! Thanks!”

Have a blessed day :-)
