I Have Been Dog Tired

For the past three days after dinner, I have found myself zonked out cold for hours and waking up in time to go to bed. I don’t know what has caused this activity to continue on a daily basis but I do hope that it finds an end….like….now.

Well for one thing, I’m not getting anything done….zip…nada….nothing…zilch.

Maybe I should work myself into a frenzy….naaaa….that would just make me even more tired and I probably would sleep until the next morning. 

It has been a couple of weeks at least since I’ve popped out a new design of any kind….not counting a button I did for MahoganyMama

You would think that after sleeping for hours I would be awake enough to get something done but that hasn’t been the case until tonight…uh….this morning. But I don’t plan to stay up much longer cuz I have to work tomorrow…uh…today, and if I stay up much longer I’m afraid I will continue this vicious cycle.


I’ll give you one guess what I’m wishing for.

So I bid you farewell in hopes to regain some kind of normal daily after work procedures…love y’all and thanks again for stopping by….I wouldn’t be doing this without you.


Come And Sit A Spell

If Betty Boop can stop in for a spell, I’m sure you can too.


I have been thinking lately about the thought I had when I first titled my blog and the meaning behind it. I really wanted something that put the attention on you and what you are up to. 

Then I started writing poetry, I really love the addition. If you aren’t aware, I’m posting my poetry on another blog…Reggie’s Thinking

I’m still adding poems from this site as I go and tweaking the site. 

What I want to do with this blog isn’t new, it’s learning, achieving, reaching, having fun among other things….by linking-in.

Let’s say you have a business you’re getting started and would like to keep you’re progress noted…what better way than to post your way through and link-in with other achievers of the world.

No business?…that’s ok. How about a house you’re building, selling, remodeling or just have a home with memories you’d like to share…link-in.

How about that garden you’ve not been doing for a few years now….motivate yourself by posting your first day and post your progress as the garden awakens by linking-in.

Getting married?….post it. Going back to school after all these years?…post it. First time in a plane?…post it. Skiing, for the first time?…post it. That feeling you get when you write…post it….

Right now I think it will be once a week…not sure what day yet. 

That’s what I’m #workinon


The Weekend

The music plays
The crowd roars
Feeling the beat

They dance dances
Almost to frenzy
Bodies in sweat

Roars from crowd
In appreciation
Engulfed in the moment

ah yes

The music beats
The crowd roars
The bodies move

It must be the weekend

Times Like These

While going through my muck (my time in ugh!land), there is something that I already knew but had come to realize, that I never should have stopped writing. 

I can’t explain why I completely shut down other than another thing I have come to understand. I’m drained. I believe that it is more than just a matter of months, but quite possibly a matter of years that is the cause. 

It just seems no matter what I do to move forward, I keep getting knocked back down. Now I know that it’s not supposed to be a bed of roses all the time, but come on…it seems a constant barrage. Mind boggling. But I somehow manage to stay above water to avoid drowning. 

Then I open my mail to find that someone else has shown kindness. 

I was recently awarded a Creative Blog Award from Becca Givens. I must apologize to Becca for me taking so long to accept and share the award which I did here

And then there’s Promising Poets’ Parking Lot showing appreciation with this award.      

It’s times like these that help to take some of the muck away. 

From now on, when I get hit, I’ll try to write instead of turning off the switch.

Oh how I wish.

Then Again….

This is a post I had sitting on the shelf. I was struggling at the time and loaded this page with the images I had taken the time to choose according to my mood at that time. The date of the draft was February 13, 2011.

the way i’ve been feeling 
lately…like i just wanna 
say…i give up!

                                                    i don’t know if i’m
                                  coming or going                                                                                                                  

but i know i have family
and friends, some i know 
in flesh and bone, and some
i have never met….

i appreciate you being there, even in silence…i have said a time before, the journey is ours alone, but we do not travel alone…

even with friends and support,
i have to look into the 
mirror to see what is there

 anyway, i want to wish everyone 
a happy valentine’s day!

I just couldn’t let all my hard work go to waste…now could I?

Saturday morning and I’m up getting ready for work. It’s a bit chilly this morning so I turned the heat on the knock the chill off…going to be about 30 degrees cooler today than yesterday. 

Everyone is snug in bed except me and Reg…he’ll be going to bed soon I’m sure. I’m having my one cup of coffee as I sit here. It’s quiet and peaceful. 

For those of you who don’t read my daughter’s blog, I’ll have to do an update on what’s going on with the kids…I have some catching up to do over there myself.

I’m trying to get a handle on some of the things I was doing on my blog…whew!!

Well…gotta go….thanks for stopping by.

Can’t wait to get home so I can enjoy my time off. 

One more thing….if I happen to come across your mind at some point…say a prayer for me…thanks  🙂

Life Is

Life is full of this and full of that
 We all know that’s old hat

We laugh we cry we fuss we fight
In the end we do what is right

Another day has dawned upon us
Some are waking and starting to cuss

Some will work and some will play
This will happen throughout the day

Enjoy it all and have much fun
At the end of the day it will all be done

Time to Reflect

Today is Thanksgiving Day and many will visit or be visited by friends and family. It is a day that will be filled with laughter, catching up, and possibly some tears along the way.

Tables will be covered with food and drink. The aroma that is filling the air even now will fill the nostrils and tingle the senses of all. 

Many will be giving thanks for countless reasons that they feel are meaningful to them. Times of reflection will engulf the minds of those who are remembering where they were at a given point in time that brings them to this moment of giving thanks.

I know I had mentioned how much of a hard time I was having at work, but it is important that I stress the point that I am truly thankful that I have a job. I mean this wholeheartedly. A time when so many people are struggling this time of year to put a meal on the table. 

 I know what it’s like to be out of work and wondering where the next meal is coming from. After reading the beginning of a most recent post,  I wanted to change it because even I didn’t like what read.

This is my moment to reflect and to be thankful for what I have because I remember looking for work and not finding any.

Happy Thanksgiving To All.
