Five Complaints/Brags

A fellow Writing Warrior, Tee Ayer, posted her Wednesday Wonderings yesterday. They were:

Five things I have to complain/brag/comment about?  

I thought this would be fun :) So am giving it a whirl...

1.  like Tee, I have oodles of ideas in my head for stories... literally oodles.  I just don't have the time to write them all out. Yes, not working would be a wonderful thing right now, but I have too to keep food on the table lol

2.  I can make one heck of a design for a garden.  I am not one to toot my own horn as many who know me know, but I'm doing it now and it feels good :) I love to shape designs in garden beds and they do look quite nice, if I must say.

3.  I am saddened to hear my old school has been demolished.  I am complaining that our government is the pits when they decided to close, then demolish our small schools.  Big mistake there people!

4.  My second book is all written and awaiting a home.  No more self publishing for me.  I've learned my lesson!  

5. Lastly, I have a great circle of Kindred Souls with me, I treasure them with every fiber of my being. 

Did it, Tee :) It's kinda like my positiveness and thankfullness ... which I JUST remembered I've let slip, so I end this post with my 1 positive thing about myself and my 1 thankful thing...

I am a good decorator.  (yep, hard to write, because it's so hard to have faith in yourself and even harder to tell others! lol)

I am thankful for my hands.  (and pray for anyone who has lost a limb)

Your turn!  Make sure to say one positive thing about yourself and one thing you are thankful for.  Post in the comment section below, or just say it to yourself, OUTLOUD.  It really works that way and you begin to feel so much better about yourself. 

Have a wonderful day!

Snow In April by C. Richard Miles

It snowed here on PEI today.  I wasn't happy about it, as I really want to get out there and garden, but If it had to snow, I'm happy with it.  It's so pretty now :)  My daughter took a picture and it reminded me of a poem.  Here it is... 

If you must slight me, let it be the touch
That snow in April, falling soft and white
Gives to the blossoms delicate and light, 
So I don’t suffer, it won’t harm me much.
If you must spite me, let it be as quick
As snow in April falling, not to last.
Lies just one moment then, like mist is past, 
So it won’t sting me; I won’t feel the prick.
If you must fight me, let the tender blows
Like snow in April, make no lasting mark
As soft, spring sunshine, on the grassy park, 
Brings green renewal. But yet April snows
Can still surprise me, stir me from my rest
For snow is April’s chill, unwelcome guest. 

C Richard Miles

The poem is perfect for today <3 

Stylish Blogger Award

Yes, it's me.  :)  It's been a looooong time since I've written... but it's been so busy here.  I came up with an idea for a children's picture book.  Worked on it, did some changes, fixed it up and finished it.  Worked on the query with help from some dear friends <3  then worked on it again and again lol... It has to be so perfect!  Then, today, they were sent!  They are now on their way.  What will happen?   Will someone love it?  I hope so!! :D

In the meantime, I have other projects to work on and love to work on them :)  Writing is so relaxing, but then again, bothers the heck out of me at times, and when I take a break, I'm dying to get right back into it!  Such opposite feelings but I love it :)

I had a nice surprise in my mail box on facebook the other day.  A dear friend, Tee G. Ayer , a fellow warrior of mine  (As I mentioned before, a wonderful group of ladies who are a wealth of information and hearts overflowing with love)  . has awarded me with a Stylish Blogger Award.  This is so very kind of her!  I was thrilled to the bone when I saw it.  Now I hope I post it correctly ;)

Thank you Dear Tee!
