Poetry Thursday - Ugly Things (A Song)

I like the prompt at Poetry Thursday this week, but it simply hasn’t been a week where I could put the time and thought into writing something original for it, so I’ll hope to revisit it another time. Meanwhile, I’m going to keep this short today (Hey! You in the back - stop laughing!) and […]

Random Items from the Junk Drawer of my Mind #33

I’m not sure that post title is quite what it should be, because this one includes a lot of Linky Love, which is kind of like showing you Stuff pulled from Other People’s Drawers. (Wow, that just sounded very, very wrong.)
My Drawer: Don’t forget you have five more days to write a fun little story […]

SPC: Glam, Week 4 - Movie Poster

Here we are at the final week of November’s Glam Self-Portrait Challenge.
All month I’ve been taking my inspiration from classic Hollywood glamor shots. For this final week I decided to veer a little sideways from that and turn my final self-portrait into a faux movie poster. I got the idea from the lovely Angela, who […]

On […]

A Review of a Movie, a Bond Movie (no spoilers)

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, especially since I was one of many people who wasn’t so thrilled with […]

Thoughts from the Hide-out

Here I am, home again after spending a lovely day at my sister’s house yesterday. There were eight people, one dog, a lot of good food and drinks, and a lot of talking and laughter.
I took my camera with me and thought maybe I’d share a couple of photos today, but once I got there […]

The Giving of the Thanks

It’s after midnight as I’m posting this, so it’s now officially Thanksgiving Day in the US.
It may not be original to list things you’re thankful for on Thanksgiving, but I still like the idea. After all, what’s not to like about a holiday that’s about being grateful for the blessings in your life and spending […]
