As I sit soaking in my warm bubble bath I am reflecting on my life. This year I turn 50. This year I am no longer a mother of children. I am a mother of 3 adults. As my tub continues to fill I am not sure if I am comforted by the warm rising... Continue Reading →
Fun way to meet new bloggers!!
What better way to suggest friendliness – and to create it – than with a cup of tea?” -J. Grayson Luttrell
Aloha, charming WordPressers!
I’m delighted to announce you that The Little Mermaid is hosting her third monthly tea party on her website. What? A tea party? On WordPress? When? How? For whom? Alright..alright…take it easy. I’m coming on to your questions.
Classically, a ‘tea party’ makes one think of superiorly elegant and elaborate affairs of the Victorian times.

What if... the bumblebee knew that technically he should not be able to fly? What if... he looked at his tiny wings and said I can’t? What if...he thought no,I am not supposed to fly? Look at me..it’s impossible. What if... he stayed in the colony thinking about his weaknesses? Think about the impact that... Continue Reading →

Or by some miracle I'll have some new and interesting thoughts formulate in my mind. Until then... you'll... Continue Reading →
Last night as I sat pondering what to write about l must have said out loud,"I'm out of thoughts." My husband popped out with "bacon." I said "what?" He said "bacon, write about bacon!" Yep Bacon.
