Tree and sunshine.  A perfect lunchtime walk!

Here is City Sonnet’s November Photo a Day Challenge (https://citysonnet.wordpress.com/2019/12/01/december-photo-a-day-challenge-2/)!

Today’s theme is: Stylish.

Or should that be, “Stylish??:”



December Writing Prompts, Day 10 – Going, going, gone

From Putting My Feet in the Dirt (https://puttingmyfeetinthedirt.com/), November’s prompts are here: https://puttingmyfeetinthedirt.com/2019/12/01/december-2019-writing-prompts/

Going, going, gone.  That’s the story of the sun at this time of year.  One minute you’re sitting at your desk enjoying the light coming in through your window (’cause you got lucky and scored an office this year!), and the next (3:30 pm, mind you), it’s gone.  Gone!  Stupid daylight savings time.

Share Your World – December 9, 2019

And now for this week’s Share Your World (https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2019/12/09/share-your-world-12-9-19/

What is truth? (Credit to Ursula https://anupturnedsoul.wordpress.com/2019/12/05/which-side-of-the-mirror-are-you-on/ )

The opposite of consequences.

What’s one thing people would never know about you just by looking at you?

I can’t tell you, ’cause I’d have to kill you.

Do loud noises bother you?


If you were guaranteed the correct answer to just one question, what would you ask?

Let’s face it – none of us want the “correct” answer…we want the answer that will help us sleep at night.

Fandango’s One Word Challenge: Indulge

“Welcome to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). It’s designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt. Today’s word is “Indulge.””  (https://fivedotoh.com/2019/12/09/fowc-with-fandango-indulge/)

Indulge me this morning as I share a picture from our deck last night.  It’s our favourite room in the house!

RagTag Daily Prompt: Flagrant

A response in starting over with a new daily avoidance (or non-avoidance, as the case may be), here with the Ragtag Daily Prompt (https://ragtagcommunity.wordpress.com/2019/12/09/rdp-monday-flagrant/), today is Flagrant.”

I was going to say I will miss the fragrant food at one of our favourite restaurants when it closes at the end of the year (the chef is retiring).  But then I realized the prompt was “flagrant”, not “fragrant”, and decided to stick with it in a flagrant disregard for the prompt word…

Up Until Christmas – Christmas Favourites Blogging Challenge Dec. 9

This December, from the 1st until Christmas Day I will be posting one thing, song, video, whatever, that tells you a bit about what I like at Christmas.  You will laugh, cry, shake your head…oh, let’s face it.  I don’t know what you will do.  But I know what I will be doing!

This SNL sketch hit my radar a few years back, but it is now a huge favourite.  Too real!!

Ok, this is stretching it a bit, but it’s still technically a tree!

December Photo a Day Challenge, Day 9: Extremely

Here is City Sonnet’s November Photo a Day Challenge (https://citysonnet.wordpress.com/2019/12/01/december-photo-a-day-challenge-2/)!

Today’s theme is: Extremely.

This was an extremely weird enough thing to see in the produce area of our grocery store, that I had to take a picture.



December Writing Prompts, Day 9 – Humorless humor

From Putting My Feet in the Dirt (https://puttingmyfeetinthedirt.com/), November’s prompts are here: https://puttingmyfeetinthedirt.com/2019/12/01/december-2019-writing-prompts/

My days are full of humour that some would call humourless.  You know the kind, right?  Something happens, or you say something, that makes you laugh, and so you do.  But while you are laughing, you start thinking about what you are laughing about, then realize it’s your life, and then you cry.

He gets it…
