Blog-o-Rama Days 11 & 12: Smile & A Mother

Blog-o-Rama Days 11 & 12: Smile & A Mother

I decided to combine these two prompts because they seem to go hand in hand. My mother has rejoiced in my happiness and helped wipe away my tears, making her inextricably linked to my smiles, and since today is Mother’s Day, it seemed like a perfect fit. I chose this picture because it captured a…

Blog-o-Rama Day 10: Stars

From the time I can remember I wanted to be an actress. I yearned to walk the red carpet, to have strangers ask for my autograph, and most of all to have the opportunity to pretend to be someone else. So, for today’s prompt, stars, I decided to blog about this long dreamed aspiration of…

Blog-o-Rama, Day 6: Broken

Blog-o-Rama, Day 6: Broken

Broken… in my home, what isn’t broken? We live in a circa 1890’s farmhouse in need of lots of improvements. For today’s photo, I chose this porcelain doorknob which I bought as a replacement for one of our doors. Sadly, it has never made it to its destination. The doorknob isn’t the only occasion of…

Blog-o-Rama, Day 5: Paper

Paper… wow! So much is made from paper! I thought about money, but that didn’t really inspire me. I thought about posting a pic of my marriage license, but that would require me digging through my house to try to locate it… nah, too ambitious for a Sunday afternoon. Then it hit me. I’ve done…

Blog-o-Rama Day 4: In My Cup

Blog-o-Rama Day 4: In My Cup

This beautiful Imperial glass belonged to my grandmother. I never actually saw her use it. It sat in a glass front cabinet in her formal dining room. I wonder if she ever filled it up and sat back in a comfy chair with a sigh. If she did, I wonder what drink she chose. Tonight,…

Blog-o-Rama Day 3: This Is Really Good!

Blog-o-Rama Day 3: This Is Really Good!

  Ahhh… There’s nothing better on a Friday evening than an Anthony-Thomas fundraiser Caramel Candy Bar and a Guinness. Perfect partners, indeed! The Redbox rental of Silver Linings Playbook makes it even sweeter. Of course, I’ll need to put in some extra exercise time to counter the effects of that delicious candy, but it will…

May Blog-o-Rama, Day Two: Morning Ritual

My morning ritual varies a great deal depending on whether or not I have to go to work. Today was unusual for a Thursday. My family and I were home from work today for a sad occasion. My husband’s grandfather passed away and today was his funeral and graveside ceremony. So, my morning ritual was…
