Town Day

Well, it was one of those days... a trip to town means... pack Rilla's bag for in case of car sickness... pack facecloths with soap on them in baggies for our hands.  Pack treats for eating.  Make sure cards are ready, Ipod is charged, and phone is charged.  Get Rilla all ready, and me too :D  and make sure Mark has gas in the car.  And then we were off.  I was tired just getting into the car lol

Picked up Emily from school and then we were off.  Oh i love ipods and driving long distances and thankfully i get to put the music up loud.  Dancing in the car isn't easy lol but fun :)

Didn't get any stitch of writing done today at all.  That's ok though, one day won't hurt.   On the drive to town , though, i spied my dancing tree again.  I adore this tree... it looks like it's holding up it's skirts, i want to write a story about it, just not sure how, but it'll come to me.

Tomorrow is getting things cleaned up for Rilla's birthday on Saturday.  Lots to clean here.

I did get another poem written the other day.  A friend sent a pretty picture to me.  A lady walking on the beach.  I thought she reminded me of myself, and as i looked at the photo, I wanted to write about it.  I'll see if i can find the photo and if i can share it.  I found it... it's called A Familiar Walk by Susan Rios 
With the poem i wrote to go with it...  You can buy the print with her site too!  cool!

My Island
My Island is my homeland
Leaving would be so hard
Without it I am broken
It lives within me now.
Happiness lives here;
Love, hope, family and dreams.
Peace is easily found
Taking your breath far away.
Beaches to ponder
Gardens, trees and quilting fields
A waving hand, a friendly smile,
An islander forever
Don't take me from my homeland
I cannot stray away
For life without my island
Would I be forever lost.

Oh! i watched The Fall 2006 movie last night... LOVED IT!
Plot... In a hospital on the outskirts of 1920s Los Angeles, an injured stuntman begins to tell a fellow patient, a little girl with a broken arm, a fantastical story about 5 mythical heroes. Thanks to his fractured state of mind and her vivid imagination, the line between fiction and reality starts to blur as the tale advances.

I would definitely watch this one again.

Let me know if you watch it and what you thought too.


  1. I also loved The Fall. It's a great movie that flew under the radar, but was worthwhile. It's been a while since I last saw it (a whole year or so) though, but I thought it was a beautiful story.

  2. You saw it too, Corissia :) cool :) It was beautiful... the little girl was awesome, like she wasn't even acting .

  3. Just reading all you had to do to get ready made me tired too, lol! Denise, that picture could BE you. I really want what she's wearing.

    Never seen the movie - but I don't watch many movies! I'll see if the library has it.

  4. I forgot to say, I LOVED the poem! It fit the picture so perfectly!
