  3. bargains…I love that we have so many choices.
  4. random stops for noms…spontaneity is fun!

  6. it’s beautiful today! Temps are perfect. YAY
  7. new shoes! I got my annual shoe buy for my birthday. J/K but it is what I asked for and got, so YAY! And I love it when sales meet up at the same time.
  8. you know you are getting old when you get excited over #7s purchase being good walking shoes. But…they are in a snazzy color.
  9. home shows on TV on Saturdays are fun. Especially like Zombie homes.

Happy Friday and first post for August! Let’s see how this week went:

  1. I worked on a phase of a project and completed it with approval. 2. Everybody in this household is back on the path to health. 3. I spent a co-celebration with my other daughter who calls my “Mumpley.” We discovered a little coffee shop in Apex and it was yummy. We had not seen each other since before my wedding and had a lot of catching up to do. 4. Grocery bargains YAY! 5. Grocery helpers YAY! 6. Nice people YAY! 7. I asked for help from someone I admire and they were so gracious to provide it. 8. People who I can count on, the ones who stay the path, are wonderful and I so much appreciate them. 9. Time when you need to have simply time. 10. You! What are you grateful for this week? Please share here or write up a post. You don’t have to come up with TEN!

Happy Friday and TTOT day! Yes, I am back again. I posted earler this week, but I took it down for reasons…don’t ask, please. This one sticks! The above photo is not mine but it kinda reflects my current state, a contrast between warm and mellow. And on the way to something taller.

  1. Happy One Month Wedding Anniversary to my beloved. I am grateful you are in my life.

2. I am gradually feeling better. Yesterday was my big test for running errands much of the day and looking at a condo (no, did not buy). I got through it and was ready for bed early. Grateful I got through the day.

3. I got through and maybe still going through TBH this difficult matter with a person who does not see eye to eye…I consider it a gratitude that I am starting this new day with a fresh perspective.

4. Celebration of the book launch for Elizabeth last weekend and looking for to this weekend’s event with Sarfraz.

5. Having time off for healing gave me plenty of time to read and I am always grateful to read.

6. The Sealey Challenge is coming up in August. I have a whole stack of books to read and re-read. I am grateful.

7. Daughter is rocking her cane and has blinged it up on a regular basis.

8. The “Dear Heart” Call for Submissions is picking up speed.

9. I have a special treat lined up for #8.

10. YOU

Ten Things of Thankful July 10 2022

I am way too many days late, but it is better to jump back in, right?!

  1. As you can see by my cover photo, I am a newlywed. While I am not a young lady anymore, I still feel all the feels and joy is the most along with love. We were married on June 29. It was a civil service and daughter and our close friend were witnesses.

2. We went on a honeymoon to New Bern and had a lovely time. We also drive to Emerald Isle and put our toes in the sand. There are no pictures. They are all in our memories.

3. Our friend who is really like family and our daughter had a great time while we were away. I am grateful for their friendship and that we have such a sweet friend to open up her home to our daughter.

4. Busy, busy, busy…I am

5. Fine Lines Summer Camp is happening and I am participating this weekend and next, along with Wednesday night. Today, I am a presentor. It is so much fun to get together with so many other writers and take on challenges.

6. Bonus is that I also participated in another monthly writing challenge. This one is managed by Rusti Lehay. I like her style. She gives us thought provoking prompts and we go on our own little writes and then share. Here is her information: Rusti Lehay

7. I have a new course opening up in the Garden of Neuro. It is called Path to Publishing. I will be posting more about it in a little while.


9. Coolness from #8.

10. YOU – What’s your thankful?

Ten Things of Thankful – June 18 2022

It’s TTOT time and Father’s Day Weekend – Let’ do this!

  1. That handsome man in the picture is my Daddy, which was his preferred title. Today would be his 102nd birthday and, of course, tomorrow is Father’s Day. It is appropriate those two days are so close together as he was an awesome father. I am grateful. To say it was all rosy…no…but to say we grew to have a strong relationship…you betcha (his expression, too).
  2. A family member was able to go home vs staying in the hospital and is on the mend. WHEW!
  3. Grateful to be a part of the wonderful anthology of poetry “Not Just Anybody Can Be Dad: A Tribute to Fathers” published by Busta Word Publishing LLC and it is free on Kindle today:
  4. I am so grateful to the positive response to Social Justice Inks and look forward to the book launch on Monday.
  5. The Book Launch is upcoming, but I want to share here. I hope you can come since it is virtual: Book Launch I am very grateful for the participation.
  6. This past week has been so hot for June and I am extremely grateful for A/C
  7. I heard many people lost power from last night’s storms. We did not. I am grateful we did not and I am grateful that they are working on getting others turned back on, because…it’s hot.
  8. I am grateful for healing internally of the heart and externally (well internally too) of the body.
  9. I am grateful for friends who open up their heart and home to my family.
  10. YOU – What are you grateful for? You can add a post through the below link or you can put your thankfuls in the comments.
