Have your blogging goals changed?

Yes they have.  This blog was suppose to be all about my last year of teaching, but that never got off the ground, proving I rarely finish what I start. (See below)   So now I just want to take pictures and write –  and like the caption up top says, simply blog about nothing. Hey, ‘nothing’ worked for Seinfeld!

If you were to perform in the circus, what would you do?

I would love to prance around the ring on horseback.  At this point in time, it would be more like broken back.  Dang these degenerative discs! 

If you could go back and talk to yourself at age 18 what advice would you give yourself? Or if you are younger than 25 what words of wisdom would you like to tell yourself at age 45?

Read more.

Write more.

Be less critical.

Be more nurturing.

Finish things you start.

Start the day with a positive thought.

End each day with gratitude,

and always say your prayers.

What is your favorite comfort snack food?

Cheese and crackers, El Diablo hot mustard for dipping, and Sweet Baby Jesus Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter Beer.  And if I’m out and about, a Philly Pretzel will do just fine.  Great stuff, huh?  Well the keys words were comfort snack food, not healthy snack food.




Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Lunch with my friend, Gen, mother of Cupcake, who lives too far away to see as often as I’d like, but who is always in the car and heading south when I need her.  As far as looking forward to, well, nothing planned, so I guess I’m in for a surprise! 


Gen, Cupcake’s mom. (Ah, Cupcake is a pup.)

Cee has thrown out the shadow gauntlet and I’m hoping that she doesn’t mind that I fooled with this a bit.  I downloaded a new app and I’m having fun with it.  So, since this is the “FUN FOTO CHALLENGE”…

Forgive me, Cee.  I might have gone overboard.

A very dear friend of mine took me on an interesting jaunt.  Since we only met about 8 years ago when we were teaching at the same school,  I’ve seen little of her past.  She took me to her high school and to where she first taught.  I saw where family members call home and then – YAY – she brought me to a quaint shopping center in the middle of a lovely town in PA.   Sadly, with all that driving around, we let the day get away from us, and the shops were about to close.  We hurriedly purchased a few items, stopped in an ice cream shop and bought a frozen hot chocolate – yes an oxymoron, but that’s what they called it – and then off we went.

Now we are an unlikely pair, her being 39 and me going on 62, but a friendship we formed, and it is one I cherish.  Knowing that I love to blog and take a picture or two, she surprised me with a visit to the inn where she and her husband were married.

I give you the windows at Bridgetown Mill House.

I hope you enjoy these because I sure did!

Of course, the wedding was not held at this beautiful old, but crumbling building.  The festivities were held at the venue below.  But I was just beside myself when I saw the greenery mingling with the bricks, and the windows being overwhelmed by the trees.
